Well, the new season has finally arrived, and once again we are getting ready to see who the “Cinderella” teams will be. We want to know how the teams are doing compared to last year. We also want to know if the good teams from last year will be able to play well again.

I’m a fan of the Wings so the only way we can improve is if we really win the cup, but here are the top 5 teams you’ll want to see this season.

# 5: Washington capitals

Caps look really good at the beginning of the season. Last year they finished second in the eastern conference and ended up losing to the Penguins in the seventh game of the second round.

This year, they want to do it again. They have a lot of talent that they had last year and they could go further in the playoffs. With the experiences acquired in his last career.

What I like about this team is their offense. They have 3 players that are actually producing for them right now. Ovechkin (duh), Semin and Backstrom (who is giving assists). These players have contributed greatly to making the Capitals one of the highest goal scoring teams in the league.

# 4: Colorado Avalanche

At first, I didn’t think they were going to play well. I didn’t think they had good players that they could trust.

The Avalanche obviously realized this. They have also come up with a very creative and simple solution. Your solution, trust everyone and let’s work together.

It is one of the few good teams that does not have a distinguished scorer, but the offense is widespread. 7 games in the season and only 4 players on the team do not have a point, 3 of them defenders.

If they can keep it up, they’ll get back to where they were at the beginning of the decade, competing in the playoffs.

# 3: Vancouver Canucks

Even before the season started, he was telling people to keep an eye on this team. They really caught my attention during the preseason “nonsense.”

During the preseason they were 7-0-2. However, they got off to a really bad start when the actual season started. They lost their first 3 games.

However, I am still going to say that they are a great team because of the work they did in the preseason. They also have some quality players on their team.

With the twins Sedin and Roberto Luongo (one of the top 3 goalkeepers in the league in my opinion) they have some players they can trust.

The other thing they have done is to increase their scouting ability. Because of that, they ended up with some prospects and a much deeper team than last year.

# 2: Buffalo Sabers

This is another team that didn’t make the playoffs last year. However, the playoffs were not missed much. Remember that last year’s playoffs were very close in the Eastern Conference.

This year, they will fight for the same thing.

The biggest difference between the Sabers and the rest of the league is that Buffalo is a very defensive team. In fact, they have allowed the fewest goals of any NHL team.

Much credit must go to goalie Ryan Miller for keeping the puck out of the net. At the start of the season, he has a 1.6 GAA. It will probably increase, but it is still impressive.

# 1: Pittsburgh penguins

When the Pens took Crosby a few years ago, they were one of the worst teams in the NHL. They weren’t making the playoffs and they were pretty much a team you wanted to take on.

Now, they have changed that. Last year he rose from the ashes to win the Stanley Cup. Of course, they did some trades on the trade deadline that really helped them achieve this.

This year, they have the same talent. Crosby, Malkin, Getzlaf and Guerin can score goals.

The last piece of the equation comes in their goalkeeper, Marc-Andre Fleury. He has shown us that he has what it takes to win championships.

I do not mean that the Pens can repeat, it is still too early for that. However, they will definitely be the team to beat when the playoffs hit.

Every week of the college football season, I make at least one college football parlay bet. There is something magical about watching many games at the same time and having action in all of them. If you are new to NCAA college football betting, here is some information to help you.

Let’s start by talking about the difference between bookmakers when a game falls in number. Some bookmakers push ties, which means that your parlay card is reduced to the next number. So imagine you have a 5-team college football parlay and the Ohio State Buckeyes (-3) win by 3. Since it’s a tie, the card would be reduced to the next level. If you are playing a “tie win” card, you would win the bet.

College football parlay cards can have both sides and totals. A side is when you choose sides, like the Michigan Wolverines. And the total is when you bet less or more than the total number of points scored for both teams.

Unsurprisingly, you can increase your pay by adding more equipment. The risk also increases. While most bookmakers tend to have the same payouts, some offer special payout amounts.

Charging for college parlays is fun. Here are some common payment amounts:

Parlay of 3 country teams 6-1

Parlay of 4 country teams 11-1

Parlay of 5 country teams 20-1

Let’s go.

There are also teasers that are somewhat popular with sports bettors. They are easier to win, but pay much less. Many like betting teasers because the lines are more favorable for sports bettors. As an example, you could see the Washington Huskies as a 14-point dog on the royal line and a 21-point dog in a teaser. As you can see, these bets are much easier to win.

Do you know what is the best college football parlay bet you can make? There is a “best” bet and many sports bettors don’t realize it. Whether you’re betting on teasers, semicircles, or straight parlays, you need to know what you’re doing to get ahead.

Trent Reznor, the mastermind behind the industrial rock group Nine Inch Nails, is no stranger to the realm of the best songs in the sexy rock music genre. And if you asked anyone who’s stuck their head into the rock world for an iota of time, they might respond by saying that NIN’s “Closer” definitely deserves a spot on any top 10 list.

But what about Trent’s other bands / projects? What about How To Destroy Angels, the band he shares with his wife, Mariqueen, and his friend / collaborator Atticus Ross? What about your soundtracks, also co-composed by Ross? Their remixes / covers?

How about we dive into less mapped territory?

Here’s an example of a playlist that uses Trent Reznor’s sexy deep cuts:

1. All Time Low (Nine Inch Nails – Hesitation Marks)

Get the ball rolling with this strong mid-tempo funk song, which sounds a lot like “Closer” (Trent even inserts verses from “Closer” when he performs “All Time Low” live). Between Adrian Belew’s dissonant ’70s guitar, Pino Palladino’s staccato bass lines, and the drugged arpeggiator at the end of the song, this song takes you on a drunken sexual journey. Good way to start.

2. Get Down Make Love (Nine Inch Nails – Sin)

Heighten the angst a bit with Trent’s industrial version of Queen’s deep theme from “News of the World.” Produced by Ministry’s Al Jourgensen, Trent’s distorted voice makes him sound even more desperate and sexually frustrated, the complete opposite of Freddy Mercury’s confidence: “I’m the provider of all things sexual, now do what I say.” Trent’s opinion is more “Do what I tell you ???

3.27 Ghosts III (Nine Inch Nails – Ghosts I-IV)

Keep the distress and noise high. This super deep cut is an instrumental from a series of instrumental EPs called “Ghosts”. These EPs were the main reason David Fincher asked Trent and Atticus to score his films. Fincher would put “Ghosts” songs on the “The Social Network” soundtrack to test the feel of things, trying to hear what the difference would be between a darker score and a more upbeat Elvis Costello rock score.

4. Solo (El-P Remix) (Nine Inch Nails – Every day is exactly the same)

This halftime version of NIN’s hit single “Only” by hip hop artist El-P turns the original disco feel into a super sexually charged mix of sweaty beats / turntable effects. Technically Trent didn’t, specifically, but shut up. It is part of the Halo canon (Halos is the official Nine Inch Nails catalog system). This will totally work in your favor.

5. The loop closes (How to destroy angels – Welcome to oblivion)

An almost instrumental song, this melody unites electronics and exotic instrumentation, solidified by another “Closer” -like rhythm. A great song that uses upward dynamics throughout, starting soft, steadily climbing its way to the loud (and you should be climbing to your own loud) before unleashing its energy and resolving into blippy electronic pianissimo. It’s also great to hear Trent and his wife riffs together on vocals.

6. Reptile (Nine Inch Nails – The Downward Spiral)

A classic NIN song from a classic album, but a deep cut nonetheless. Trent is totally in his element of sexual loss and frustration. It takes things a little darker (which, considering everything on this playlist is dark, is saying something).

7. Closer (Forerunner) (Nine Inch Nails – Closer to God)

I know I said we would stay in more uncharted territory, so why does “Closer” appear? Play. BUT this is a remix made by Coil. If you’ve seen the opening credits for “Se7en” (from the aforementioned David Fincher, no less), then you’ve heard this great version of NIN’s biggest single. It’s dirty, muddy, long, and has a slightly more haunting feel than the original.

8. A familiar taste (Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross – The Social Network)

This song is a revised and modified version of a song from the Nine Inch Nails “Ghosts” collection. But I like this version better. In the movie, “The Social Network,” it is played while Mark Zuckerberg is imagining what happens at all the frat parties he would like to attend when young college girls are invited out for a night of drunken sex revelry. This song is a nice warm top for the next track on the list …

9. Container (Nine Inch Nails – Year Zero)

I love this track. This truly rivals “Closer’s” reign of NIN’s sexiest song of all time. This vibrant, throbbing cartilage is ideal for the most violent sexual rompers out there. The noise, the beeps, the rhythm: it’s perfect.

10. Consummation (Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross – Gone Girl)

This is dark. The darkest on the list. And it’s the latter for a reason. I won’t say what happens in the movie “Gone Girl”, but this song takes place during its most moving and violent scene. I would use this song to bring the climax when it comes to your playlist. The slow pulse, the rising cacophony (it looks like your speakers are being smashed) all lend themselves to the perfect ending (read: orgasm) to your ten-song Trent Reznor sex festival.

*** 11. Sugar Storm (Reprise) (Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross – Gone Girl)
As a bonus, use this song as you go down. It is short but pleasant to listen to. It also has the perfect leading key ending, a big cherry on top of everything you just heard. ***

But yes, “Closer” might appear near the end.
