Stop me if you've heard this before; a player has a down year. The team gets anxious, thinking they need to move this player while they still have some value and in return acquire false dreams and bags of pucks in return. Said player then proceeds to go back to their normal ways and fans begin to wonder why we can't have nice things. This has been a pattern for years in E...

Oilers Looking to the Future

Posted 9:11 AM ET | Comments 9
I appologize in advance. I am writing on a different site now and this blog isn't as well structured as it could be. Hopefully it is still worth reading.Oilers Brass is scheduled to meet during the 5 day all start break. They are going to discuss whether there is any hope for them this season. TSN is quoting Chiarelli is not being optimistic about them deciding to be...

The NHL challenge has been another addition to the game which follows the successful model in the NFL, giving another reason for anticipation for fans.But its reach has not yet been refined.Years ago, the " horseshoe " blue line allowed Matt Duchene to score a goal for the Avalanche, and yes, that was a blown non-call by the linesmen. It's a tough job, sometimes, es...

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...

With just two games to go until the Buffalo Sabres officially hit the halfway mark of the 2017-18 season...they find themselves in familiar territory. Competing with the Arizona Coyotes for the rights to highest odds in this springs NHL Draft Lottery.And while it seems like the same old story (something I wrote about earlier), it also feels slightly different. Yes, t...

--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...

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 4
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...

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...
