Hello all, my name is Sean Desjardins and I currently live in Fort St John, BC after moving from Vancouver three years ago. My favourite teams are the Canucks and the Lightning and I love aggressive, puck control, pinching teams like the Lightning and Nashville. I love hockey at all times of the season, but fully understand the draw of the playoffs as the effort and stak...

Oilers strategy?

Posted 7:19 PM ET | Comments 0
At some point during the regular season I started wondering what the Oilers strategy is going forward. During the last three seasons I think everyone would agree that the goal was win now. Mcdavid and Draisaitl on entry level contracts was a recipe for opportunity. Chiarelli made several moves and whether you agree with all of them or not he made the effort and fell short,...

Oilers Pre-Draft

Posted 12:08 AM ET | Comments 5
What we know for sure. Chiarelli is shopping the first round pick and he has also said that improving the blue line is his main goal. Actually he claimed they needed " tweaking " but that was the only thing he mentioned other than the players need to play better. He is not wrong.Oilers need Talbot, Klefbom, Larsson, Lucic and Sekeras to simply be better. I would say we...

My intent in writing this list is to test the effectiveness of a predictive, statistical model that I value and- in doing so- confirm or deny the stances I've taken on these players. In conjunction with some limited viewings of these players (mostly through OHL Live and WHL Live), I want to put to the test the assumption that one needs to spend egregious amounts of time ph...

The offseason is officially underway, and the Penguins are preparing for what figures to be a relatively routine Summer. Pittsburgh will enter the draft with the core of their squad under contract, and will no doubt be scouring the ranks of eligible prospects in hopes of adding impactful talent to a farm system relatively devoid of it. The Penguins will not have much cap r...

Patience Please

Posted 5:24 PM ET | Comments 2
With one single flip of a card...seven years of disappointment and ineptitude were seemingly washed away.Now...less than two months later. Common sense has also seemingly been washed away.With the anticipated addition of super-prospect, Rasmus Dahlin, the Sabres appear to have a bona-fide #1 defenseman on the horizon. For many, it seems as though the Stanley Cup wi...

First off, the Cinderella season for the NHL that saw many teams make an unfathomable jump with continue. New Jersey, Colorado, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Vegas and some could say Washington all had way better or worse than expected seasons. The Golden Misfits as they are more appropriately branded are going to the Cup final. The question remains, was this a one night only Vegas ...

The NHL DOPS decided to make an ambitious PR plan and explain why certain players were and weren't punished for four reckless hits lately, and their rationale was quite astounding.They reviewed the Doughty hit, the Kucherov hit, the Johansson hit, and the Hartman hit. I was rather enlightened by it! Out of the four hits, I personally ranked the most dangerous ones to b...

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...

What if?

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...

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...
