Hello 2011-12 regular season! I was beginning to think you were never getting here. The sprint to April starts tonight. Damn that sounds really far away.
The Blues take the ice just after 7 p.m. with pre-game festivities kicking off around 6:45 p.m. The Predators are in town. Even though they'r relatively close, it's not like the Blues and Preds have a heated rivalry. It's more like someone left the pizza box open and all the pepperoni turned a little cold and greasy. It's a room temperature rivalry?
No one reads this space. Move along.
Judging by the sparse attendance (compared to normal GDT standards), most of you were not around for the preseason practice game day threads. That's fine. It's not like you can make a ton of witty comments from a radio feed done by announcers for the other team. But those warmups are over and it's time to get your GDT on. This is the regular season. Be ready.
Now if you're not going down to the game (and why would you with this horrible weather we're having here in St. Louis), this is your place to vent, celebrate, joke, commiserate, bitch, whatever. Bring the funny and it's almost all in bounds. Most of it. New guys, just follow the old guys' lead.
This is your game day thread. Treat it like it owes you money and comment the fuck out of it. Go regular season!
