    Can I confess to being a Red Wings fan? :redface:

    I haven't followed hockey in years. I was a Red Wings fan back when I was younger, and then when they founded the Blue Jackets, I wanted to follow them so badly, but they were so awful, I just couldn't.

    Then I just quit following Hockey and have no idea how they've done lately. So I suppose I could come back to the Blue Jackets.

    Convince me, Scarlet Buckeye :biggrin:

    Blue jackets have been rotten, i think its one playoff appearance in last 10 years and i believe we were swept in our first series, but they seem to have fielded a competitve team this year from what ive seen in 2 games. I just got into hockey about 2 years ago to be honest, and i thought since i have no preferance might as well root for the home state team. I think we could be very competitive this year, especially with a 48 game season and even though we traded away our best player

    Buffalo Sabres fan here. When I was in Columbus I did enjoy going to some CBJ games but I worry for their future, especially with this lock out.

    Nationwide is a great venue. I have been in Joe Louis, RBC, TD arena, and the Verizon arena. All neat venues but Nationwide is my favorite. Not a bad seat in the house and the tickets are a great price. As a Wings fan I still go down for games because of the value of what I pay.

    Couldn't agree more and that goes for concerts and other events too. I saw Bocelli and the Bold and Fresher Tour there.

    They had two kickass games in a row. It's a shame they lost to the Redwings but it was definitely a show.

    I still say the CBJ did the right thing getting rid of Nash. I like Dubinsky a lot and they have some good young talent. Davidson will get that organization on track. Coming from a Wings fans Columbus deserves a winner! This town will lose their minds if they put together a long playoff run.

    CBJ is the worst run franchise in professional sports!

    However, so far in two games, there is something different with this team as opposed to the last couple of years!

    To hockey stand point Phoenix is probably one of the worst run franchise. The organization has been on the brink of bankrupt for years!

    They should move the Coyotes to Las Vegas. That would be a great move!
