Fantasy Season Starts Tonight

Fantasy season starts tonight and you know what that means?  The NHL is facing off for real!

A couple of good match ups are featured right off the bat. 

Remember the Washington fans who came here and informed us about how easy it was for the Canes to beat number one seeded Boston in seven games last postseason? Tonight, they will get a first hand taste of exactly how "easy" the Bruins are as the Caps visit Beantown to take on Boston.  It should be a good one.    

North of the border, it's brother against brother and cousin against cousin as the Maple Leafs host Montreal.

Out west, Vancouver visits Calgary and Dany Heatley's new team, the San Jose Sharks will invade Colorado.  The fun starts tonight.

One little tidbit:  Someone recently sent me an email and said that on the "War Room" today on XM Radio's Home Ice, they predicted that the Canes would win the Cup.   Interesting.

Speaking of fantasy hockey, I'd like to quickly thank everyone who is participating in the Canes Country leagues.  I originally started an "A" league and was going to also have a "rookie" league.  But that quickly evolved into 63 teams and five leagues.  Have a gander at some of the creative team names:
