Two Unknown Prospects

Posted 12:20 PM ET | Comments 0

2016 Offseason

Posted 1:12 PM ET | Comments 2
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...

Being a Red Wings fan used to mean something much different than it does now. I grew up watching the Red Wings in the Stevie Yzerman era.I saw some bad teams become good. Jacques Demers made the Red Wings a playoff team and Bryan Murray made them a regular season power house.A few playoff failures happened and so Scotty Bowman was brought in to get the Red Wings ...

Suppose they ditched the lottery 1, 2, 3 system (which is even more erratic than the previous system), why wouldn't they just take the fourteen teams that missed the playoffs and lottery the whole list, replacing them all randomly? " Chaos " says one GM, " Disaster " says another.Do you know why? Because the first overall pick is worth six times as much as the fourteenth ov...

Perceived Value vs Actual Value

Posted 11:44 PM ET | Comments 1
In the NHL, the largest reason team consistently lose games, sign bad contracts and overpay for players, is the massive gap between player ’s perceived value and their actual value. This is a major issue in the NHL. In days of the past, there were excuses for making decisions based on the “eye test”. But in reality, the eye test is not only useless, but also actually ...

This is going to be a long series and Game 1 did nothing to change my opinion of this prediction. These two teams are physical and have both proven capable of winning close games. This game was way closer than the 2-0 final. The late goal as Philadelphia was pressing to tie the game was not an indication of how the rest of game was played. Overall my perception watchin...

Posted 7:24 PM ET | Comments 0
I recently heard a caller on the Jets Post-Game Show on TSN1290 hoping that the Jets will sign some UFA's from other teams this off-season, to try to avert the situation we are in this year by bolstering our young line up with veterans. rnrnSounded to me like he still believes the Jets would have made the playoffs this year with Frolik, Stempniak and Tlusty and been a much...
