Where Do We Go From Here

Posted 11:05 AM ET | Comments 4
After the abyssal beginning to the season, the Oilers have begun to scratch their way out of the hole. The team is 5-4-1 in their last 10 games as well as grabbed 5 of a possible 8 points on their recent Eastern road trip. With Tuesday's 8-2 smack-down of expansion team underdogs, The Golden Knights, some people may believe this team is ready to turn the corner. Quick Fun...

Any delusions of the Maple Leafs cruising to a perfect 82-0 season were eliminated Wednesday night as the Devils handed them their first loss of the season by a score of 6-3. This was a rough game for the Leafs as the speed and relentlessness from the Devils forced them into a lot of critical mistakes. Things started well enough with JVR slipping one between goalie Corey...

Sabres Woes

Posted 3:02 PM ET | Comments 3
The Buffalo Sabres are sitting at 0-2-1 and seem to be in a down spiral to start the season. The team is turning the puck over way to many times and the top players excluding Evander kane have failed to produce thus far. Goaltending has been suspect and the lack of big saves is troubling especially for a team playing a high tempo, high risk high reward game. The Sabres see...

Montreal scored a whole four goals in four games.It's only four games in, surely! They're generating 38.8 shots per game! By my calculation, that leaves the team with a collective ~2.5% shooting percentage. So if stats guys are right, then their gambler's fallacy will tell them that this shooting percentage will shoot up to about 9-9.5% soon enough and they'll be scor...

Brian Burke was Right about something now hold on before you abandon ship give my theory a chance. Like many of you I am excited the boys in blue and white are back on the ice, talking to the media and even the hockey shows have started to spin narrative for us to try and follow. That being said as summer winds down I go to thinking how did we arrive to where we are now, a...

The Opportunity Wiz

Posted 2:46 PM ET | Comments 2
If you blindly walked into a room of NHL GMs and said " who wants a D-man that can bring you 50 points of offense? " , every single one would probably raise their hand. Now, factor in the possibility of a small contract being attached to this player and you have a dream made in heaven... right?...Well, maybe not. Former Hurricane James Wisniewski is still a free agent looking...

It seems almost ridiculous to even ask why a 45 year old player is unsigned, but I'll ask it. Why is Jaromir Jagr unsigned?Lets state the obvious. He is without a doubt old. He'll be 45 to start the season. He isn't the quickest player on the ice. He never has been. He won't be winning foot races that often for you. But he's smart. His hockey IQ is through the roofs. H...

The 31, August 7 edition

Posted 6:11 PM ET | Comments 5
31 teams; 31 reasons to post a random comment. Let's go.Anaheim Ducks – The Ducks are a conundrum for me. They have a good roster. They’ve won the Pacific Division something like five seasons in a row. There was very little change to their roster this summer. It seems like they can make the final four group in the playoffs on any given season, but ultimately, this te...

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...
