In an attempt to prove that I know absolutely nothing, I'm going to try picking one or two games per night this season. If there aren't any games I like, I won't pick any.
Opening night (not counting those games in the UK) has several intriguing match ups. My picks are in bold.
Anaheim at Detroit - I'm taking Detroit to win at home against the travel-weary Ducks. Anaheim is without Giguere (though they do have Bryzgalov). Detroit has a guy that is 45 years old (Chelios) and a goaltender that might see more shots by going drinking with a priest.
Montreal at Carolina - Montreal stumbled their way out of a playoff spot last year, and even though they dumped Souray (yay), I still don't like them. I think Carolina is due for a return to the playoffs this year. I'm hoping Montreal isn't.
