Demers and Lucic in Edmonton

Posted 11:51 AM ET | Comments 6
While most speculated that the Edmonton Oilers would be in on defenseman Jason Demers and left wing Milan Lucic, today we received confirmation that the two were in town meeting with the organization. Meeting and signing are two very different things and there are other teams also courting these guys (Lucic was just in Vancouver). The Oilers do have a bit of an advantage i...

One thing is for sure. July 1st in hockey season and the Rangers go together like peanut butter and jelly. The Rangers have always had a history of striking and landing the big fish on hockey's Christmas, Free Agency day one. This year is different. There is Steven Stamkos, a 26 year old franchise center on the market and he will have no shortage of teams looking to land ...

Looking for D

Posted 1:24 PM ET | Comments 1
I just want some D.Is that really so much to ask for? Apparently so. The Oilers have been in need of a top defenceman since Pronger left town. We have seen different attempts at acquiring this defenceman that we so sorely need. There was Whitney, Souray, Visnovsky, Petry, and Gilbert. What did all these players have in common? None of them were top pairing defencemen, mos...

Gryba vs Fayne

Posted 6:57 PM ET | Comments 2
With the draft and free agency soon approaching, Peter Chiarelli has made it clear that the team is looking to improve its back end. More specifically the team is looking for a right shot defenceman. Should Eric Gryba or Mark Fayne be the top 6 guy on the right side next season?Eric Gryba (28) was acquired from the Ottawa Senators at last years entry level draft in excha...

WHERE MY SABRES AT?

Posted 10:36 PM ET | Comments 0
We are less than four weeks away from the 2016 NHL Entry Draft...and the rumours are starting to fly!There is a refreshing air of mystery around what Tim Murray and the Buffalo Sabres are going to do at this year's draft. The past two seasons saw the team, despite back-to-back last place finishes, drop to the number 2 spot. Last season, the Sabres surprised no one by...

This is my first ever blog, and I welcome any feedback!This is my opinion on what the leafs 2016/2017 line up will look like as of today. So because this lineup is done as if the season started today it does not include any potential trades that could happen in the offseason. By the way I would like to note that giving Jonathan Bernier one more season as the starting go...

By Aaron BarrettFor the first time in years, the Toronto Maple Leafs are brimming with rosterable young talent. While being interviewed at the recent World Championships, Mike Babcock said: " We have too many young guys for the amount of jobs. Whoever we end up taking (in the NHL Draft) is going to be immersed with a bunch of kids. Not a few kids, a bunch of kids. " On o...

2016 Offseason

Posted 1:12 PM ET | Comments 3
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...
