It’s Like Ice Soccer, With Sticks!

The lockout of the ’04-’05 season was a long time ago and had a lasting impression on the game of hockey in this country. However, it looks like they are finally playing professional Hockey again!

I guess the NHL noticed that we watched hockey during the Olympics and decided to start playing again.  It’s nice to see them playing again.  They have had that one game every year on New Years Day that they play outside, but that was probably just to keep the players in shape until they could start playing regularly again.

I find it awkward that they started with the playoffs, but it’s been pretty exciting so far.  The first weekend has been really exciting! I assume they just drew numbers out of hat to determine seeding, because the teams seem pretty even; otherwise I’m not sure how else they would do it.

I don’t care, I think it’s great.  Might as well start with the playoffs.  Hockey always has some of the most exciting playoffs and it’s great to see these players from the Olympics again.  Hopefully next year we’ll be able have a whole season and finally get past the legacy of the lockout.
