First off, the Cinderella season for the NHL that saw many teams make an unfathomable jump with continue. New Jersey, Colorado, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Vegas and some could say Washington all had way better or worse than expected seasons. The Golden Misfits as they are more appropriately branded are going to the Cup final. The question remains, was this a one night only Vegas ...

The new owner wants to change the team culture and is off to a running start in firing former GM Ron Francis. Bill Peters is gone to Calgary and Rod Brind'Amore and Don Wadell have been installed as the new coach and GM. Although as a hockey fan, I feel Francis did a great job building a solid foundation of defensive prospects, ie: Fleury, Bean, Hanifin and offensive prosp...

As with last week, I'll be breaking down trade and UFA targets from Atlantic division teams but this time the aim will be to feature some more " out-of-the-box " thinking. Without further verbal-meandering, let's get to it!Boston:C/RW, Austin CzarnikSmall but talented playmaker with excellent playmaking ability. Plays with effort and has consistently produced offense ...

The NHL DOPS decided to make an ambitious PR plan and explain why certain players were and weren't punished for four reckless hits lately, and their rationale was quite astounding.They reviewed the Doughty hit, the Kucherov hit, the Johansson hit, and the Hartman hit. I was rather enlightened by it! Out of the four hits, I personally ranked the most dangerous ones to b...

Underdog Taking Out An UnderDog???

Posted 1:17 PM ET | Comments 0
Quite a title isn't it? Now that I have your attention, what does this title really mean in terms of this time of the season? The answer is comparing last season's successes to this year's expectations. Specifically, the Washington Capitals and the Columbus Blue Jackets, and why this battle of " underdogs " is in existence and what could come from it from either side; and wh...

As a genetic counselor, I have always been fascinated with twins. When I meet twins, I love to talk to them and find out how similar and dissimilar they are. In the case of identical twins, I simply marvel at nature and how something so unique can happen. With fraternal twins, they are no different than siblings genetically, but I am amazed to sense the bond they share wh...

What if they sign Tavares and Kovalchuk in July?...Is the Sainte-Flanelle a true contender next year!!?By moving Max, are they a LHD puck mover away from being dangerous?What ’s troubling with this organization is player development. Through the Timmins’ drafting years, all you discover is this club’s inhability to develop true prospects! It ’s in my DNA to beli...

How to Fix the Oilers

Posted 3:43 PM ET | Comments 8
Seems to be a popular title around the web. It seems rather obvious but many people go near the correct answer. It is three steps much easier said than done. I will go hardest to easiest.1. Dump the players Chiarelli has signed as UFA's2. Grab key UFA's3. Dump Chiarelli (McLellan should go to if they want a cup but he can get them to the playoffs) The first one is ...

The Hart Trophy has been a hot topic around the NHL for the better part of this entire season. It seems like there ’s a new name added to the list of potential nominees each week. While reporters everywhere have dug into all the reasons why certain players should win, I’ve decided to look at the consistency of these players throughout the year in regards to offensive pr...

I have been a casual fan of New Jersey Devils (NJD) since the 2011-2012 Stanley Cup Finals push and like to run small analysis on the team every now and then. I also am the fan that argues with friends trying to prove how NJD is better as a team than other teams.Enough about me, lets dive into the reason why I have this Blog. The Final Push for playoffs. NJD have 15 gam...

“The Buffalo Sabres are a dumpster fire! How can you cheer for that team?” Says the guy who is currently a “die-hard” Tampa Bay Lightning fan…fresh off his two-year run as hardcore Penguins backer. We all know those guys. And while they are seemingly basking in championship glory year- after-year. Johnny Bandwagon will never get to experience the highs and th...

Impressive stuff from a player that many don ’t pay attention to, and probably haven’t since he entered the l...

--So a happy New Year to everyone, and now how happy will it be in Carolina? Tonight is the first game in a brutal 2 week schedule for the boys from Raleigh, with 6 games in 10 days, 3 of them vs The Washington Caps, with Pittsburgh, red hot Boston, and Tampa squeezed between tonight's Cap game and a home and home tilt to wrap up the stretch. So the going will get tough,...
