    Right after the Stanley Cup Finals I was pretty tired of hockey, but now I am started to get excited again. Only 30 days left until World Cup Trainingcamp or something!

    How excited are you?

    My summer vacation this year is going to Ottawa with a friend for the exhibition games, so of course I can't wait. 37 days :handclap: I've been going through hockey withdrawals, I haven't been to a live game since mid-April.

    I'm really damn excited, especially since ESPN is showing so many games.

    GO USA!

    I am excited about Finnish SM-liiga, not about the "World cup". I would like to see the best players playing but because NHLPA seems to make the team selections I couldn't care less...

    it'll be good to see some national hockey again, it'll be somewhat of a preview (not completely assumnig som players decline in ability or retire) for the 2006 olympics assuming the comitee and the NHLPA can come to an agreement on playing in the olympics
     
  8. I can't wait for the World Cup. I can't wait to buy a Canada Jersey this summer with Joe Thornton's name and number on it.

    I already got my Gagne jersey, I got 21 on it since that was his number for the Olympics and I assume he and Iginla will keep the same numbers as last time. Thornton could wear 91, are there any other 19s on the team now that Yzerman's out?

    How can anyone possibly get tired of hockey?


    I'm pretty stoked though, if it's hockey I will watch.

    Not very excited at all. Quite frankly, after witnessing Euro 2004 live, everything sports related seems like a huge let down.

    That's what I feel like too!
    And you can't forget about the olympics.

    No German television network has bought the rights to broadcast the tournament yet, maybe I won't even be able to watch it. :shakehead

    I'm happy that I'm guaranteed to see some hockey soon, but too disappointed in some of the rosters to care about it a whole lot or get excited about it.

    I can see Sakic sticking with the "lucky" 91. That's the number he's always worn for international tournaments is it not?

    If I were to guess, I'd see Joe T wearing 19.

    I'm very excited about it. Can't wait for the round robin to start. I predict it'll be Canada 3-0 in the opening round robin. Russia 2-1, USA 1-2 and Slovakia 0-3. As for the Euro pool its really up for grabs. Canada is without a doubt the team to beat, but it has to be done on the ice.

    I'm VERY excited - especially since Columbus is hosting the USA training camp with exibition games against Canada and Russia.

    I am really looking forward to the Russian game and seeing (instead of reading) this guy named Ovechkin ;)

    The arena district in downtown Columbus should be rockin once again.

    Joe has always deferred to Stevie Yezerman as far as wearing the #19. With Stevie out of the tournament I think Joe Sakic will finally get to take "his" number back.

    Who gets to wear what numbers is, for the most part, determined by seniority. Joe Sakic has a few years seniority on Joe Thornton.
     
  23. Am I excited? Yes. Very much so.

    I have tickets for the exhibition game Germany-Russia in Cologne in two weeks. Looking forward to attend to the game. Hope that the Russians will get a competitive team on the ice for the tournament.
