What things that can potentially occur this upcoming season excite you?

I'll get the easy one outta the way... winning.

I'm hoping to see more of Datsyuk & Helm on the same line. They were exciting to watch together this past playoffs.

Commodore 64 & the related announcer comments.

Ericsson & Abdelkader potential breakout year.

Lidstrom continuing to work wonders at 41.

The impact of our new dark horse coaches.

Kronwalling. Hopefully he uses it sparingly during the season so he doesn't get injured, but lets it rip in the playoffs.

Datsyukian clinics. See also goalie jock straps in the rafters.

Jimmy continuing to improve his rebound control.

C64 teaching E and Abby to stand up for their mates.

Howard having as good of regular season as this past years playoffs.

Filpulla putting up 65 points.

Hudler having a good regular season and then walking away as a UFA next offseason.

I guess that last one is more of a prediction.

hope solo and alex morgan... just kidding... wrong sport.

Z putting up 30+ goals while reaching 90 points - its been a couple seasons

Dats being dats

Fil over 60 points

Howard with .930+ sv%

Hudler putting up decent points - trade deadline move as a result

Kronwalling

Ericsson playing like a 3mil player

Brendan Smith break in for a stretch

Kindl establish himself - start looking like a 2nd pairing guy.

Top 5 d in the nhl.

Franzen playing 75+ games

Further than the 2nd round of the playoffs.

Lids in top form still, and a + player this year so people get off his back.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Less injuries.

More fights.

Not spotting 3 games in a playoff series to the other team.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

More Pasha...no more broken hands, please, dear.

More games live...gotta talk my other half into that one.

Not a lot of juggling lines...keep together what works (Henrik, Pasha and Homer)

I would love to see Pasha crack the 100-point plateau...that would be sweet.

And I'm with the person above who said they'd like to see the Cup again. Me too.

More Franzen showing up/not being injured aka less of whatever his problem was.

More Filppula stepping up (hard to say this with a straight face, but I keep hoping). I feel if these two guys could just get going, this would help us exponentially (or a lot, anyway).

MOAR DATSYUK!!!! 'Nuff said.

Ditto, Helm.

More Howard playoffs hockey...but in the regular season, too.

More drinking champagne out of the same cup.

Winning, winning and more winning, whatever it takes, regular season and playoffs.

At the same time it's hard for me to specify how they should win. I'd feel a little weird if I hoped for them to play harder and yet last 82 games and the entire playoffs.
