    So I'm sitting here watching live hockey, thanks to my new digital cable box and a free month of NHLTV.

    It's the New York Rangers vs. the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Prospects Tournament.

    At least I'm pretty sure it's live.

    Anyhow, it's 3-0 Rangers.

    Lightning suck. Just as they always do.

    Is this thread going to go from now until the Final?

    Now that some Hawks games are going to be on WGN, I might be able to watch more than one game per season.

    That's not live, Flash, but it will do for now.

    It's going to take a while to get some good prospects in the organization for the Lightning. They had a good draft last time out, but Feaster's management was a disaster as far as depth and minor league organization was concerned. Norfolk, the Lightning's AHL affiliate, finished last in its division last season.

    They ended up 0-4 there, lost 6-5 to Columbus in the seventh-place game today.

    I think we can split the regular season and playoffs, if not more.

    Whatever ... we'll see how far we can take this one ... it's not lik ewe go baseball and need a new one every two weeks or so. We're just not popular enough. :'(

    Where did they hold this tournament? That rink looks like a smalltown Nova Scotia rink.

    Rangers goalie prospect Zaba doesn't look too bad.

    Got to love this thread starting, which means the season isn't far away.

    I also like that there is just one thread and not a new one every week like baseball.

    Also home of the Red Wing training camp.

    Speaking of which, seeing the guys they had at the tournament, that organization is going to be pretty loaded for a while.

    Like that's a shock.

    They do have 3-5 guys who are NHL ready, but likely will spend another year in Grand Rapids.

    Ville Leino, who was rated the top player in Finland last year, is also in training camp, but could go back to Finland if he doesn't make the team by a certain point.

    They are deeper on the back end than the front end (with players like Jakub Kindl and Jonathan Ericcson).
