In the recent past I ’ve been spouting the need for the NHL to revise the point system to reflect a more accurate landscape when it come to teams who win in regulation. My idea for a point system would be 3 for a win, 2 for an O.T. win, 1 for a shoot out win, and zero for losers. I did my research on this prior to las t night’s games so they’re already outdated but I w...

Our " beloved " Maple Leafs return to the ACC Monday night against the lowly, yet always dangerous against Toronto, Carolina Hurricanes after a winless road trip against four of the perennially toughest Western Conference teams.There is no shame in losing close games on the road against the Kings, Ducks, Sharks and Blues. What is a shame is that the Leafs lost to those te...

The Trade Deadline.....

Posted 4:42 PM ET | Comments 1
Rumors, rumors.....rumors galore! For those of you that haven't figured it out yet.....that's all they are. Smoke. No fire. Lets start with a guy like Taylor Hall. He plays like a bull in a china shop. Good player? You know he is. Reckless, Yup. Uncoachable? Nobody really knows. Nobody would really say until after he was traded....if he was traded. What are you going to ge...

The writing is officially on the wall after a disastrous California road trip, and I think it's safe to say Leafs brass are smart enough to acknowledge the playoffs are a serious improbability now (at below 30%). It's not so much that they couldn't find a groove or go on another hot streak, but there simply isn't any space in the eastern conference playoff picture for them...

This blog is dedicated to anyone who has ever said Kevin Lowe must go. Lowe must go! Fire Kevin Lowe! Resign Kevin Lowe! blah blah blah. If that happened now Edmonton would lose the opportunity to use their biggest weapon at this years draft. This weapon has been locked away since 2006 and is finally ready to be launched. This weapon is of course Kevin Lowe. That's...

Follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/DailyNHLGrindIt ’s been hyped up around the team for days now. Colorado Avalanche vs Dallas Stars in a divisional battle for the better positioning in the wildcard race. Colorado came in winners of two straight and they turned some heads with an impressive comeback win in front of a sold out Pepsi Center crowd. T he Avs defeated ...

Right Wing is perhaps the position with the most intrigue when it comes to the Sabres, unless you count the cold war era espionage level shroud of potential surrounding their goaltenders.If you ask those that watch and evaluate prospects professionally, they will tell you that Buffalo has no less than 5 interesting to intriguing Right Wing prospects. If you ask the fact...

Waiver Wire Tapping Tips

Posted 3:30 PM ET | Comments 0
In my last post, I discussed strategies for drafting your fantasy hockey team. Drafting well is critical to your team's success. If you play fantasy football, you know that sometimes if a team has an awesome draft, they will hardly need to touch the waiver wire all season, especially if their team crushes the competition week after week because even if they wanted to gr...

The duel for back-up in Denver seems to be over, though it is not 100% sure what Colorado will do. Just a few weeks ago, Calvin Pickard was re-assigned to Lake Erie even though he had played out of him mind for the Colorado Avalanche. The young goaltender was sent back due to the fact that Semyon Varlamov was healthy and Reto Berra was their number two. Their other reason ...

What, on earth, do you do with this hockey club?I hear a lot of " no-donts " online about them. Let's face it, the last time they had success, that success' name was Chris Pronger, and his wife nagged him to Anaheim. Since then, they've been nothing but a train-stop in a dead city.I'm not going to give some pretentious thorough evaluation of the team. The ...

Yesterday reports from TSN ’s Bob McKenzie surfaced regarding the 2016 NHL Winter Classic and Grandpa Bob says the league is in talks with the Boston Bruins for hosting the annual outdoor battle. If this turns out to be true, this is just another prime example as to how poorly the NHL handles their series of outdoor games and places their greed over dedication to some fa...

Just for fun. Here is my early season Sabres mock draft for the upcoming1st pick (2nd overall)- Jack Eichel (Center); The Sabres get their franchise centerman. Eichel will immediately step in and produce for one of the leagues worst offenses. The Sabres may be crowded at the center position but there is no doubt Eichel immediately jumps to the top of the depth chart. ...

NHL Hockey in Alberta

Posted 12:25 AM ET | Comments 2
I suppose for a first time blogger, a little history might help any readers to see where my biases and allegiances come from. I was born in Alberta in the early 80's the heyday of the battle of alberta. I have 2 older brothers and as one might expect, I wanted them to like me, so I cheered for the teams they cheered for, namely the Gretzky led Oilers. When I was old enou...

I haven't posted one of these in a while so I hope I'm not too rusty. You can follow me @MiikeLuci. I'll try to follow back.Remember when the Devils started the season 3-0 and the fan's biggest concerns were Larsson not starting the season in the lineup? Well twenty-three games and sixteen losses later, New Jersey's season has made a complete one eighty. The've endured a...

Calgary's Corsi Meaningless

Posted 10:34 PM ET | Comments 10
I have noticed a lot of advanced stats guys put way too much stock into Corsi and Fenwick numbers, sometimes to the exclusion of more direct and conclusive metrics. The newly annointed 'advanced stats' are a useful metric, but they are not the be-all-and-end-all of hockey analysis and in my opinion are like +/- in some ways. Although in previous use, the +/- stat came t...
