'Twas the night before Draftmas and through the NHL,Was a group of GM's that were stuck in cap hell;The scouts prepared all their draft pick selections,A steal in round 6? Cue the erections;The fans were crowded around phones and computers,Hoping to hear their team has acquired a new shooter;And Oiler fans everywhere were getting the sense, That this might be the ye...

Should Eric Gryba or Mark Fayne be the top 6 guy on the right side next season?Eric Gryba (28) was acquired from the Ottawa Senators at last years entry level draft in excha...

The past two seasons saw the team, despite back-to-back last place finishes, drop to the number 2 spot. Last season, the Sabres surprised no one by...

This is my first ever blog, and I welcome any feedback!This is my opinion on what the leafs 2016/2017 line up will look like as of today. So because this lineup is done as if the season started today it does not include any potential trades that could happen in the offseason. By the way I would like to note that giving Jonathan Bernier one more season as the starting go...

2016 Offseason

Posted 1:12 PM ET | Comments 3
2015-16 was supposed to be a rebuilding season. We weren't suppose to be good enough yet. Sure the Flyers were expected to be in the picture at least, but few thought they would actually make it in. Instead the expectation was they would fall 5 points or so shy of the last wildcard spot, and end up picking somewhere in the 7-10 range. We had prepared ourselves for this out...
