If you're not really sure what to do with yourself until gametime, turn on NBC at 11am and look for #8 in the red. Alexander Ovechkin is the most dynamic, exciting, and infectiously enthusiastic athlete in North America, and being able to watch as he enters the prime of what will be an extraordinary career is a spectacle that transcends one's opinion of the sport. Even if you don't like hockey, watch Ovechkin, and he will change your mind. Check Youtube if you don't believe me. He is just unthinkably, impossibly good. Felix-at-his-peak kind of good. A league as poorly run as the NHL almost doesn't deserve someone that talented.

And then when you've had your fill of that, switch on over to Erik Bedard. He's kind of good too. death
