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...

Please follow me at https://twitter.com/DailyNHLGrindThe Western Conference also boasts a few good names still left unsigned. Jaden Schwartz headlines the group that includes a goalie that won a couple playoffs games this year and a young winger that scored a series-winning goal. The rest of the group all gained playoff experience except for the young Predators defensema...

The Toronto Maple Leafs have a plethora of options to consider when deciding where William Nylander will begin his 2014-15 season. The situation is rather uncommon when dealing with high end draft picks, however the Leafs have the option to send Nylander back to Sweden where he would play for MODO of the SHL or keep him in North America to play in one of the NHL, AHL, or O...

Seeing I have already rather the “Top 5 Goalies” for your fantasy leagues this year, I will move onto a position that seems to be lacking in comparison to others in the league. Here you will get your Top 5 Left Wingers for fantasy purposes in 2013-14.To keep it in context, these are the scoring categories I base my rankings on: SkatersGoal: 2Assist: 1+/-: 0.25...

By Erik CaronFollow me on Twitter @ErikCaron20The Bruins are coming in to camp with “too many NHL defensemen” this season which is honestly something I never thought I’d hear ever.The Bruins are out of cap space and officially handcuffed for the time being since they still have to resign two important pieces in Torey Krug and Reilly Smith. They could wait until...

Bloom even included that expansion fees would total $1.4 billion.The tweet spread like wildfire on the social network and was making it ’s way to television within mere hours. A respected journalist with spec...

9 of 12.That's how many regular season away games the San Jose Sharks will be playing in the month of October. It's 11 of 14 if you include the final two pre-season games. For a team being forced to seek out a new identity, or any identity at all, it's not an easy start to a grueling 82-game campaign. With, presumably, new leadership guiding the ship, the Sharks roster ...

I'm looking forward to seeing the additions that MacT brought in action this fall. More specifically I want to see how the additions to the wing, Pouliot and Purcell perform. Both are secondary scorers who may not be an offensive juggernaut every night, but can chip in when needed.Over the last couple seasons, the Oilers have almost had to completely rely on Hall, Nuge, ...

Much has been written about the strength of the 2015 NHL draft class with Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel appearing to be the cream of the draft crop. You know the class or at least the cream of the crop must be something special when Sidney Crosby says that McDavid " reminds me of me " . Is the strength of the 2015 draft class at least partially the cause of June's action b...

As we get closer to the start of training camp, the Philadelphia Flyers prepare for a “bridge season” before their most prized defensive prospects are ready to don the orange and black. This past off-season has been a quiet one for the Flyers due to their cap problems but with the news of Kimmo Timonen's blood clots, they have recently signed Michael Del Zotto to a 1 y...

30th.Lowest salary in the league according to capgeek (and maybe their finishing spot in 2014/15). This is new area for the Flames who have been top four a few times in spending.This is an era where David Jones is the Flames top paid player along with Jiri Hudler. An era where they do not have a strong right winger for the first time in recent memory. The Flames req...

For NHL GM's the real challenge is, and always will be, getting your money's worth (or more) for your team.The complex problem they face is this - who do you pay a 'premium' salary and who gets the 'average' salary?Since Pascal Dupuis is a common target on the Penguins Hockeybuzz forum...I'll use him as an example. For this comparison I will use simple statistics from ...

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 ...
