Rumour: Both Washington Capitals goaltenders Miikka Kiprusoff and Devan Dubnyk want to play the majority of games with the Caps. The goaltender earning less games will likely be shipped out to a squad in need of a starter. The Capitals signed Dubnyk this offseason to a three year contract and was expected to take over the starting role by the end of the season. However, this dillema may force management in Washington to speed up the process. I've heard rumours that Kiprusoff may be the guy out due to his age and contract. Kiprusoff is the more trusted goalie in the nation's capitals thus far though, meaning that Dubnyk may be the guy on the way out. Teams interested in acquiring a starting goaltender are advised to inquire within for more details.

I certainly hope so - not just solely because I have Schroeder in this league.

I honestly feel they should waive Alberts.

Welcome Back To Madison Square Garden and New York Rangers Hockey!!!!

all 24 home games this season feature a ticket stub thank you to our greatest fans, those whose continued support make this great game what it is for all of us at the New York Rangers and Madison Square Garden. Each ticket stub at home games this year will be worth, on the gameday of the ticket, either 15% off any jersey, tshirt or cap at the team store, or a free popcorn/soft drink combo at our concession stands and at special kiosks which will be set up and clearly marked as fan appreciation booths. Lastly, any remaining stubs not used for discounts or snacks will be good for one child or adult admission to "Free Skate at Madison Square Gardens" with dates and times to be announced. Without your support, we could not be a part of this cultural sporting phenomenon we all know, love and cherish. Thank you, fans, without you we are truly nothing.

MSG itself has completed its renovation and we trust the new look and amenities will serve the community and team for generations to come. We look forward to providing the best in sports entertainment for our fans and the City of New York, and we have high hopes on not just a playoff berth, but a chance at a deep run this year, join us at Blueshirtsunited.com to keep up to date on all the action.

I think we can have up to 23 on the roster, so if you have more that you would like to add, you may.

Also i think C2X needs your minor league chart too, for depth and balancing your budgets.

T'was the night before Hockey, when all through the land
Not a roster was stirring, not even those undermanned.
The line-ups were sent to the Commish with care,
In hopes that a pickup password soon would be there.

The players were nestled all snug in their roles
While a fire for the playoffs burned in their souls.
Finding spots for veterans and rookies under a new salary cap,
Had jostled our memories from a long winter’s nap.

When out in the thread there arose such a clatter,
There might be no season, what Hell is the matter?
Away to football we shuffled like a slug,
And cracked open a beer, chug-a-lug-lug-glug.

The reality set in that the money had won

Over the love of the game, it's decided, it's done.
And there would be no more rebuilds and Cup challengers
For our simulated league, and 30 tiny managers.

The fault was a little old Grinch, so slimy and slick,
Bettman they called him, and boy, what a dick.
But even this puppet and the greedy corporate suits,
Couldn't stop the season, a new CBA! We have a truce!

"Now Datsyuk! now, Daley! now, Prosser and Vistinen!
On, Komi! On, Kulikov! on Dumba and Lehtonen!
To the top of the standings! to the top of the Board!
Stretch pass away! Score away! Win a league award!"

And then, in a instant, The GMs got all prepared
The humming and hawing while everyone compared.
As we drew in our heads, options turning around,
Down came the injuries and new bodies must be found.

Some were dressed all in bandages, some's best days were kaput

Some were long shots, Some never were and some stood about five foot.
"Why didn't both rookies make the team?

If they had I'd be sailing. Man, what a dream!"

"Did I remember my minors cap or to submit my budget?

What about that trade offer? Really hard to judge it.
Playoffs? I don't know, this race is really thick
I need some more players but I traded that pick!"

We spoke not a word, but went straight to our work,
And filled out our rosters, without being kneejerk.
And laying aside all of our worries and fear,

To hope that all would fall into place this year.

Scapegoats will be made and Heroes are born

To the roar of the crowd, and of the goal horn
But I say to you all, as you try to sleep tonight,
"Happy Hockey season to all, and to all a good fight!"
