The NHL season is starting slowly - only 4 games on opening night, 8 tonight and 6 tomorrow night. Things don't really get going until Saturday (14 games).
Here are the picks for today:
Florida at New York Rangers - As much as I don't like the Rangers, they have improved during the off-season (even if they overpaid for Gomez). Florida is, well, Florida. They're not very good yet. They traded for Vokoun, but Olli Jokinen isn't the same player on the road.
San Jose at Edmonton - The Sharks are largely the same, but so are the Oilers. Okay, to be fair, the Oilers did overpay for Dustin Penner and signed power play threat (and even-strength liability) Sheldon Souray. That's still not going to be enough, even opening up at home.
