For the first time in three and a half months, I packed my Canucks shirt with me to work. It's a bit rainy outside and this just feels right, no? Hockey is back, and with Thanksgiving around the corner, it just feels all so right.

And for the first time in months, I am now excited to start this hockey season. I'm not sure if the Pensblog writers felt this way about the beginning of the season after they had lost to Detroit in the SCF, but it took a while to care about hockey.

Can the Canucks do what they did last year? Impossible to predict and also unlikely to happen. So let's move on from what happened last year, and enjoy the beginning of the season for what it is. Hockey is back, be grateful, because if we have a lock-out next year, you won't get the joy of feeling like today is Christmas.

Head over to the boys at The Pensblog for your opposition blog coverage. I might be jumping on their pre-game podcast, so if you want to give it a listen. I'm sure I'll get ripped in their c-blog for my podcast appearance.
