More Maple Leafs follies as the 2014-15 season gets off and running here in October! Plenty of new faces, still the same problems...However, let me start with some of the good: The team did make several smart moves in the off-season to strengthen the bottom six. Adding veterans like Mike Santorelli, Daniel Winnik and David Booth (although injured again) brought in a g...

The Oilers are terrible. Mac T tried to add to the line up in an effort to improve the club, but they are still garbage. This is fact. Now that I got that out of the way, I want to also that Mac T did indeed make some nice additions, but the team needs something much bigger, much bolder.I'm going to suggest that 2 players can turn this team around. Not just players, but v...

The problem with Toronto Maple Leafs “fans” and their rocky relationsihp with Phil Kessel is the vicious circle that’s created by the story-hungry media, and then perpetuated by this overreacting portion of the fan base.One cross-ice pass that deflected off of Stuart Percy’s skate in the season-opener (he could be very good for a long time, by the way), and the ...

There was a lot of debate regarding advanced analytics this past offseason. The debate was filled with passionate supporters on one side and adversaries who vehemently rejected the statistic as relevant on the other. This blog is not an extension of that debate and does not challenge the relevance or significance of advanced analytics such as Corsi; however, it does challe...

Those of us here in the US are happy to have you as neighbors.Original: The Flames couldn't handle the Blues Saturday night and showed their youth and inexperience with numerous fumbled pucks and chances. The Blues jumped out to an early lead Satu...

So now that I ’ve had the last couple days to over-analyze the Toronto Maple Leafs opening night loss to the Montreal Canadians (not to mention re-watch the game several times… thank you Leafs TV), It is safe to say the sky did not fall. I am disappointed in the loss; because it was to the Montreal Canadians (yuck) and also because I, along with thousands of other fans...

I ’m unbelievably high on what Barry Trotz can do for this team so let me start off by clearing that up. Two young men who are in the lineup for tonight’s season opener are going to reap the rewards of having a veteran coach, who for one of the first times in his career actually has a talent fill ed lineup and a chance to do damage with it. Surrounded by a mix of tale...

As a follow up to my previous article on CBS Fantasy Hockey Draft Strategy, I wanted to come back with a breakdown of how you should approach drafting in a standard head-to-head Yahoo league. Unfortunately, Yahoo has discontinued the Pro Leagues (probably due to their refusal to move off the rotisserie format). Many of the principals are the same as CBS (and any league fo...

The case of arguably the most prominent restricted free agent remaining unsigned this summer took another turn yesterday. Columbus Blue Jackets President John Davidson chose to voice his displeasure surrounding the contract situation between the team and restricted free agent center Ryan Johansen. Not only did Davidson himself voice his displeasure on a personal level, he ...

New Rules

Posted 9:02 PM ET | Comments 0
After a long hiatus I am back to writing. I know that the NHL added some new rules this year. I like some changes and dislike others. I like the removal of the spin move on the shootout. This move always had the puck going away from the goal which is not the design of the shootout. I also like the move to speed up face-offs after an icing. This will keep the intended...
