Nuge to Habs? Vanek to Oilers?

Posted 3:04 PM ET | Comments 8
Eklund is running a rumor that the Oilers and Canadiens are talking trade moving Ryan Nugent-Hopkins to Montreal. I thought I might spell out what that would look like, because I think some Oilers fans are going to get the wrong impression.The only reason the Oilers would move Nugent-Hopkins is for long-term contract reasons. Edmonton does not have a salary cap issue thi...

The Oilers announced today that they have signed Leon Draisaitl to an 8 year 8.5 million dollar deal.The good news is the Oilers have inked Draisaitl now as opposed to training camp or later. With this signing the Oilers roster looks to be locked. The Oilers will have their second leading scorer from last season for the next eight years with Connor McDavid. When the Joh...

A couple random looks at the Atlantic.1) Toronto takes first in the AtlanticReally in truth why can't they? They were only eight points out last season and no one has gotten significantly better. If anything the other teams ahead of them have regressed. Of those ahead: Boston looks rudderless, Ottawa lost Methot who they looked terrible without last year and Montreal......

Toronto -(August 2, 2017) Patrick Marleau is a talented player and well-respected in the NHL. A lot can be said about his notable accomplishments 2-time Olympic gold medalist, world champion, and in 20 years in the NHL Marleau has only failed to score at least 20 goals 5 times and one of those years was lockout shorten season. This article isn't about how good of a player ...

Oilers Opening Day Lineups

Lineup #1:Maroon McDavid DraisaitlLucic RNH CaggiulaJokinen Strome PuljujarviSlepyshev Letestu Kassian- This forward group brings back some continuity from last year so that the Oilers can jump out to a fast start and ring up some wins early in the year. The top line was so dominant at the end of the year so it makes sense to continue that chemistry. The RNH centred ...

Flames need Jagr

Posted 6:51 PM ET | Comments 9
The calgary flames need a top line RW that's no surprise but where can they find it? Look no further then the ageless wonder, Jaromir Jagr would fit the bill perfectly. He played with young talented players in Florida putting up very respectable numbers for a guy that is in his mid 40's. Whether Jagr is on the flames radar remains a mystery, but one could argue the flames ...

Is Mark Streit the Answer?

Posted 9:22 PM ET | Comments 9
It has been reported by the Journal de Montreal that GM Marc Bergevin has extended a contract offer to former Canadien Mark Streit. The report suggests that the contract would be at a value of 1.5M for one season, so this seems like a great idea at first sight. So, is Streit the answer in Montreal? Really, it depends on the question being asked. Despite Streit ’s career ...

IT was well known that Rutherford likes to be a gunslinger of sorts. It had to kill him this past year, with so much of a Cup winning roster returning, that he didnt need to make major trades, particularly at the deadline. I have to wonder if Botterill was able to reign that in, or if GMJR was just smart enough to resist the temptation to wheel and deal. With Botterill mo...

Possible D Pickups for Devils

Posted 4:57 PM ET | Comments 15
The Devils have acquired some much needed offence over the past week and now need to focus on their defence. With the amount of cap space left, the Devils will most definitely pick up a defencemen either through trade or the free agent market. Since there are few options left in the market, the best option may be to look for a trade. Possible Free Agents- Francois Beauch...

Just Enjoy The Ride For Once

How many July 1st's have we had where we all sat and either watched painfully or refreshed constantly only too see the blue and white come up short or Blake out on deals I really can't put my Finger on it but usually the Clarks-on us about how we take it all. Puns aside I don ’t write much as you can tell but in this particular instance I figured maybe it was time to sit...

As we approach July 1st, I'm sure that everyone is scanning the free agents and plotting how their team will pounce in the 1st minute and fill that gapping need that all teams have. The Leafs are no different. They have glut of wingers clogging up the system with a lack of quality centers outside the NHL or defence at all levels. Everyone's big wish for the Leafs is t...

The Avalanche looked absolutely terrible this year. Roy's probably laughing at the team, but he shouldn't; he helped make this disaster. Roy and Sakic were stuck between two dynamics: Roy wanted a bigger team that was hard to play against and Sakic... I don't know what Sakic wants to do. I don't think Sakic knows what Sakic wants to do. I can look at the Avalanche like...

Wild Offseason Needs

Posted 10:36 PM ET | Comments 0
The Wild are at a crossroad. The changes made last off season resulted in the best regular season the team has had in their 17 year existence, but the quick exit from the playoffs at the hands of an " inferior " St Louis Blues team has left all of Minnesota wanting more. For the last couple of years, Chuck Fletcher's goal has been to increase the scoring of the team and la...

As a long time Toronto Maple Leaf supporter and Chicago Blackhawk season ticket holder since 2006 here in Chicago, I am very disappointed to see the Hawks making such rash (irrational) decisions with their current roster today. And with the Maple Leafs in such dire need to find at least 2 solid 1-4 defenseman (if they want to compete in the East next year and the next few ...
