Let's recapNew additions in their natural positions-Leo Komarov-LWDavid Booth-LWMike Santorelli-CPetri Kontiola-CMatt Frattin-RW Daniel Winnik-CStephen Robidas-DRoman Polak-DWilliam Nylande...

After the 2014 NHL Trade Deadline a lot of people (including myself) considered the St. Louis Blues to be favorites to win the Stanley Cup. Unfortunately their run in the playoffs didn ’t even last one round thanks to their division rival Chicago Blackhawks.The team finished sixth in goals scored during the regular season and with the loss of Ryan Miller, GM Doug Arms...

The Blackhawks are 2.2 million over the cap (1.3 if you take away Teravainen), so they will need to find a way to reduce their salary before the start of the season.Someone will not be in a Blackhawk uniform come the start of the season. Expect one or more of the following players to be dealt:Patrick Sharp 3yr, $5.9m AAV The advantage to moving Sharp is that you would ...
By Erik CaronThe last big fish is still swimming in the pond. The Avalanche came to terms with RFA forward Ryan O ’Reilly last week while the Rangers came to terms with RFA forward Chris Kreider. The Toronto Maple Leafs signed RFA defenseman Jake Gardiner to a five year 20.25 million deal. None of those names though compare to the one big name that has yet to be signed...

With the 2014 NHL draft in the books, and summer development camps at a conclusion as well, I thought I would share my thoughts on the teams that did well at the draft, how the Calgary Flames stacked up against other organizations, and what the Flames came away with, as 6 new prospects were added to the talent pool. I know it ’s already been a few months, however I feel s...

While it may not have been The Curious Case of Vladimir Sobotka (http://my.hockeybuzz.com/...=17431 & #038;post_id=16361, the closing of t he Roman Polak Door in St. Louis sure does appear to very curious, at least on the surface. While most hockey pundits had speculated about the Blues wanting to get tougher on the blue line this offseason, the Blues traded away one of the...

Predicting the Central Division

Posted 9:57 AM ET | Comments 4
My good friend BHTD9 came to me with the idea of coming up with some predictions for next season today and I have to say I was intrigued. To be fair, I'm not as solid on my western conference material. Guaranteed there'll be a few disagreements here. That said, lets give it a shot then.Last Years Standings Colorado - 112St. Louis - 111Chicago - 107Minnesota - 98Dall...

The Bruins have been virtually non-existent during this off-season. We have signed a bunch of useless depth players who will hopefully never have to play a minute during the season. These signings have left us with around 3m left in cap space. This is barely enough to sign either of the top 2 priority's , Krug and Smith. The worst part about that is if you can only sign on...

Predicting the Atlantic Division

So just sitting here bored and looking at the NHL divisions, thinking about what the standings will look like at the end of next year. So got talking with my buddy MHejduk and we've decided to write a blog for each division. I'll write for the east he'll right for the west. We will then write about the playoffs and eventually come up with a East champion and a West cham...

Entering season #4- Jets 2.0

Posted 8:50 AM ET | Comments 0
This will be the 4th season for the Jets 2.0 and the only roster moves made since the draft and free agency were letting Olli Jokinen walk and signing Mathieu Perreault. The Perreault signing IMO was a great move, but not enough of a significant impact to change their fortunes for the upcoming season. When you play in a division with Chicago, St. Louis, Dallas, Minnesota, ...

Buffalo Sabres - The X Factor

Posted 5:08 PM ET | Comments 5
Attitude.This should be the word trending in Buffalo this coming NHL season and it already has been a little. Savvy Sabres fans have either recognized the moves by Murray as mindset changers or at least they are trusting what the GM is saying. Whatever your position is on the moves made this offseason, this season has a different feel to it. No question. The real questi...

The title really isn't as far fetched as you may think. Many, ok most, think we are a bottom 5 team. It is hard to not agree based on what last year brought. Hell the past couple years of decline. But this year has the potential to be different, and by different I mean not as bleak as everyone thinks. Here's why: -New management +/- 0 call it a wash-New Coach with the ri...

Rough week...I want to start this note off by reaffirming my position on the Spezza trade. Personally I thought it was a disgraceful display of management by the Senators head office, though as a longtime Senators fan, I shouldn't be surprised. After all this is the same organization that decided to offer a contract to the giveaway artist Wade Redden instead of Zdeno Char...
