Year End Grades - #98

Posted 4:53 PM ET | Comments 0
Now is the time for me to put my glasses a bit further down my nose, take out my best red pen and grade each individual Oiler on their season. I debated on the order of how I wanted to do these; alphabetically, point production, desire to make me throw things at my tv... I decided on descending jersey numbers so looks like Jesse Puljujarvi is up first. GRADE - CThis yea...

After a long hiatus, thousands of miles of pilgrimage and months of flogging at the altar of shame that is university, my sorry-ass has returned to begin actively writing about the Oilers! I'll be writing a long series of posts detailing my ideal (and less-than-ideal-but-still-solid) offseason targets I believe the Oilers would do well to pursue. In the process of doing so...

Underdog Taking Out An UnderDog???

Posted 1:17 PM ET | Comments 0
Quite a title isn't it? Now that I have your attention, what does this title really mean in terms of this time of the season? The answer is comparing last season's successes to this year's expectations. Specifically, the Washington Capitals and the Columbus Blue Jackets, and why this battle of " underdogs " is in existence and what could come from it from either side; and wh...

As a genetic counselor, I have always been fascinated with twins. When I meet twins, I love to talk to them and find out how similar and dissimilar they are. In the case of identical twins, I simply marvel at nature and how something so unique can happen. With fraternal twins, they are no different than siblings genetically, but I am amazed to sense the bond they share wh...

I've written about this a few times because I hate the one thing that improves your team the most comes down to lottery balls without rhyme or reason except for teams improving their odds through something that can be about 50% arbitrary (see the Avs from last year to this year, who doubled their points with basically one less player). This year, some of those perennial p...

What if they sign Tavares and Kovalchuk in July?...Is the Sainte-Flanelle a true contender next year!!?By moving Max, are they a LHD puck mover away from being dangerous?What ’s troubling with this organization is player development. Through the Timmins’ drafting years, all you discover is this club’s inhability to develop true prospects! It ’s in my DNA to beli...

How to Fix the Oilers

Posted 3:43 PM ET | Comments 8
Seems to be a popular title around the web. It seems rather obvious but many people go near the correct answer. It is three steps much easier said than done. I will go hardest to easiest.1. Dump the players Chiarelli has signed as UFA's2. Grab key UFA's3. Dump Chiarelli (McLellan should go to if they want a cup but he can get them to the playoffs) The first one is ...

The Hart Trophy has been a hot topic around the NHL for the better part of this entire season. It seems like there ’s a new name added to the list of potential nominees each week. While reporters everywhere have dug into all the reasons why certain players should win, I’ve decided to look at the consistency of these players throughout the year in regards to offensive pr...

I have been a casual fan of New Jersey Devils (NJD) since the 2011-2012 Stanley Cup Finals push and like to run small analysis on the team every now and then. I also am the fan that argues with friends trying to prove how NJD is better as a team than other teams.Enough about me, lets dive into the reason why I have this Blog. The Final Push for playoffs. NJD have 15 gam...

“The Buffalo Sabres are a dumpster fire! How can you cheer for that team?” Says the guy who is currently a “die-hard” Tampa Bay Lightning fan…fresh off his two-year run as hardcore Penguins backer. We all know those guys. And while they are seemingly basking in championship glory year- after-year. Johnny Bandwagon will never get to experience the highs and th...

After a rookie season that saw him put up 49 points in 82 games, Sebastian Aho has elevated his game during his sophomore season to superstar forward level.Aho is currently on pace for 66 points during his second NHL season at the ripe age of twenty years old. Impressive stuff from a player that many don ’t pay attention to, and probably haven’t since he entered the l...

--So a happy New Year to everyone, and now how happy will it be in Carolina? Tonight is the first game in a brutal 2 week schedule for the boys from Raleigh, with 6 games in 10 days, 3 of them vs The Washington Caps, with Pittsburgh, red hot Boston, and Tampa squeezed between tonight's Cap game and a home and home tilt to wrap up the stretch. So the going will get tough,...

So if you read my last piece, which you probably didn ’t because it didn’t even make it to the My Hockeybuzz sidebar, I was going on and on about Anaheim’s negative imbalance with shots on goal over the past while. I wanted to look more into this, and I’ve heard of Corsi, but it was never something that got me going. However, I ventured out the re, into the wild, and...
