    Coming off a victory over heavyweight Bruce Boudreau, Patrick Roy will attempt to defend his home from veteran Barry Trotz, a many time no-neck weight class champion. Called by many "the fight of the century", this bout will pit offense against defense, passion against intelligence, and neck against no neck.

    I bet Duchene is screening our goalie when the Avs ice it and scores off the tip in.

    We will get our butts kicked again. I will be watching Henry IV Part II on PBS tonight. I will go to bed much happier.

    their squad of forwards looks worse than ours IMO.

    i mean come on, cody mcleod wears an A and is on the second line over jamie mcginn.

    we need to winnnn.

    and on that note, clune vs. downie and nystrom or hendricks vs. mcleod

    Bolded is a joke right? Avs have pretty a pretty sorry D corps but they have one of the most stacked top 9 groups in the league.

    Mackinnon and Parenteau are on their third line. I agree that we have better depth, but even with Landeskog out, Duchene, Stastny, Mackinnon, and Parenteau are better than any F on our team offensively.

    Need this. I hope we don't start at home in an 0-2 hole. Jones will have a big chip on his shoulder.

    Go Preds!!!

    2nd line will be Mitchell - Stastny - Tanguay.
    4th line will be McLeod - Cliche - Bordeleau.

    I don't know if you are being serious or not.

    Jamie McGinn is on the 3rd line because that line was great last game and had some wicked chemistry. Besides that the top 3 lines were all about equal in TOI.

    And McLeod wears an A because he is a leader. It has nothing to do with offensive skill.

  15. Bordeleau won't sit on the sidelines while those two get fights.

    I bet Hendricks vs. Bordeleau happens

    Great GDT! :yo::laugh:

    Looking forward to this game. Regardless of who's starting in net for NSH, I think they'll be looking to come out strong and hard despite playing last night.

    I'm counting on seeing a much more organized Preds team tonight. Hoping for a 6-5 victory against our new division foes. Hopefully Jones goes off.

    All I want to see is Jones go beast mode tonight. All you read about the kid it had to hurt when the Av's didn't draft him. I want to see his immediate answer tonight.

    We should have more luck breaking this team down than we did with St. Louis. Their defense looks really, really bad. It's just a matter of keeping them off the scoreboard, which will be no small task. I'm cautiously optimistic.

    I'm just glad Pekka is starting. At this point I care about how he looks in net more than I care about getting the win.

    How weird is it to say "division-rival Colorado Avalanche"? Pretty weird. But then again I guess we'll get that a lot this year. Anyway, for a few months I've said that Jones would get his first NHL goal on Oct 4, in overtime, in his second career game, in his hometown (basically), against his favori........anyway, you know the rest. Jones wins it in OT and roll credits.
