July 1, 2007

Posted Thursday | Comments 15
This is a very important day for the 2007-08 Philadelphia Flyers. A very, very important day. July 1st is the first day that unrestricted free agents are free to sign with the team of their choice. GM Paul Holmgren and crew will have gameplan ready to go, but it could easily be blown up within hours. Going into next season, the Flyers most important areas of need are a ...
Well, Game 1 is finally here! The past several days have inched by as I've waited for the playoffs to start. It should be a good game. I think the Islanders will really work hard and battle. The Sabres have waited for this all season, so they better be ready. I expect them to play like they were at the start of the season and during the playoffs last year. At times t...
The Sabres put forth a much better effort in Game 3, resulting in a 3-2 win and the lead in the series. Finally, the Sabres forwards scored all 3 goals, including goals from Briere and Vanek. Zubrus currently leads the team in points, with 4 (all assists). He was great again tonight, providing good offense and defense along with a strong physical game. Both of the goal...
[i]O Calgary Flames who skate in the Dome, Hallowed be the ice upon which you play. Your power rankings will climb As your points do over time, at Sportsnet as well on TSN. Give us this day our special teams skill. And forgive us our tresspasses as we check those who try to do us ill. Lead us not to the penalty box and deliver us from unreviewed goals, For thine are...
The Rangers have NO chance. In addition to the Sabres being the overall superior team in every facet of the game, this series is a terrible match up for the Rangers. Sabres in 5 at most. Since I’m confident that round two is “in the bag” already… Let’s spend a little time looking forward to next season. Here’s how I think the line up will look on openi...

Best 2 out of 3 . . .

Posted Tuesday | Comments 1
Here we go off to Buffalo all tied up 2 games apiece. Don't think many Sabres fans thought we'd be looking at a best 2 out of 3 series after game 1. I'm sure we'll hear lots about how it was a goal, what a difference a few days make. Happen to be listening to Briere being interviewed, I guess he doesn't read the Sabre bloggers on myhockeybuzz, because he thought th...

The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway

I'm with Briere on the Rachunek no-goal from game 3(if you heard his post game comments, you know what i mean); it shoulda counted. I understand why it was called no-goal but i didn't agree with it. Yeah, the call tonight was crap, too, but it should never have come to that. When an offensive threat like the 'bres are giving up 2 goals a game, the series should be over by ...

Briere needs to step it up...

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
Look, I know he's the Co-Captain, and I know he lead the team in scoring, and I know he was the All-Star Game MVP, but lets be frank: He needs to show up in the 2007 NHL Playoffs! Goal or No Goal, so what! He is supposed to be a leader on this team, and has done nothing but shy away from everything. Every time he touches the puck, I know he's going to do one of two things...

The Season is really over

The reality is setting in that the Sabres season is over and they waisted a glorious opportunity. I’m sitting here trying to figure out what went wrong and the only conclusion I can come to is that the Ottawa Senators were better. I guess when put into perspective the disappointment is eased a bit because the Sabres didn’t deserve to win. In last years Conference Fi...

Who Will It Be?

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
So here we go, another off-season filled with free agents and question marks only fit for the Empire State. This year it comes down to the absolute core of the team, the two captains, Chris Drury and Daniel Briere. I love Chris Drury, he is everything I want my captain to be. If I have a team led by Drury, backstopped by Ryan Miller, and coached by Lindy Ruff, I am ...

Sabres season in review

Posted Monday | Comments 1
Despite a disappointing conclusion to the Sabres season it was one of, if not the best season in Franchise history. The Sabres have played in the Stanley Cup finals twice but had never won the Presidents Trophy in franchise history. The Stanley Cup is obviously the most coveted prize but it is equally as difficult to be the best team in the league over an 82 game span. I w...
Based on Ek's list of who's the best available, I'm forecasting where each player will land this summer: #1 Centers 1. Chris Drury (7.5M) - San Jose. I think they'll sign Drury and trade Marleau. Anaheim already has McDonald and Getzlaf as their top two centers and the Kings have Kopitar and Cammalleri. 2. Scotty Gomez (7M) - Atlanta. Gomez centering a line of ...
When the Sabres season ended, the speculation started. Would the Sabres sign Drury or Briere? How much money would they command? Questions, Questions, Questions! In the middle of the season we thought Drury might cash in on a $6mil/year long term contract. And with “leading scorer” statistics, Briere might get more. Now, as we close in on July 1, those sala...
With the constant rumors of the buffalo sabres loosing both of their captians who do you pick to be the next sabres captain. do you pick Hecht,Campbell,Afinogenov,Tallinder,Lydman or do you get someone from the outside to become your new captain. i believe that that wont happon because they have stressed the last few years how the core of this team is the most important th...
This by far maybe the biggest week in the history of the Sabres franchise in the post lockout era. Drury or Briere? Which one do you want because you can only have one? Does Chris Drury return back to colorado to where he started his career? Does he go home to California and reunite with his best friend Mike Grier? Where does Briere go? Big big questions surrounding the fr...
First of all...I must point out that my following statement is not a negative comment about the excellent Habs brass.

That said, I really no longer see the point of discussing Habs rumours. Bob Gainey is probably one of the most enigmat...
The recent lack of information out of the Sabres camp in regards to Daniel Breire, Chris Drury & Thomas Vanek speaks volumes. But what does it say exactly? Everyone knows Darcy doesn't show his hand to often. Are there problems amongst the troops? The brass? Or is simply they don't know what direction this team is headed? This should be the Sabres off-season checklist:...
I think the Flyers have done exceptionally well so far in terms of positioning the team for future success. Paul Holmgren & co are looking like geniuses; but right now the team is entering a most critical stage of this "restructuring", where the next couple of moves will largely determine the fate of this team over the next several years. One of these moves will likely be ...
Welcome to the 2007 NHL off-season. That would be the new NHL. The cap-era NHL. The fiscally responsible NHL. The $8-million per year for Scott Gomez NHL.

As they have before and as they always will, NHL general managers will bid all their pretty pennies on the top unrestricted free agents available t...
It isn't officially the end of Danny Briere and Chris Drury's time with the Buffalo Sabres but it seems that the end is near. Briere turned down the Sabres 5 year $25 million dollar offer and Drury turned down an offer that is supposively worth about $6mil per year. I just wanted to post something to thank them for their time spent in Buffalo trying to bring a championship...
Life after death……or in Buffalo’s case, life after Drury and Briere, is it time for fans to prepare for what seems now to be our inevitable fate? Like an Atheist afraid of death Buffalo Sabres fans must now seriously ponder what the world will look like if the two captains leave. As was reported on TSN.ca earlier today Briere looks to be gone. Combine the fact th...
One team that, i think, is going to struggle the most this summer, with the new cap, is Nashville No player want's to sign there, now because of their indecisiveness for a new owner, and the lease running out after the 08 season. When Kariya goes to the market, that puts them in the basement, cap-wise. I heared Home Ice, today, that after trading Vokoun and losing Kari...
Its June 30th, and as I sit here today, I realize the end of an era is dawning. The end of the era of the Captains. 2 men, brought together in seperate trades in 2003 to bring the Buffalo Sabres out of mediocrity and take them to glory. But with the mission not yet completed, although at times it has come very close, it looks like the captains will be making a move out ...
Buffalo fans facing the ultimate reality Ya gotta feel for a fan who's team could potentially lose their two co-captains, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Vanek blasted 43 goals and with Bobby Clarke not around anymore, an offer sheet fiasco is a little less likely. Drew Stafford moved quickly from the fourth line and had some truly highlight reel goals....

Predictions on where some of the biggest free agents will land.

What has free agency done for us lately? That's the question that every NHL team should be asking themselves around this time of year. Now, that's not to say that we should do away with free agency, effectively making each player an indentured servant to the team that drafted them; however General Managers standing still on the big name free agents is encouraging to se...

Ok, we're only in the very early hours of July 3rd here, so this is very preliminary.

Wow. I am just speechless, and that is not a common occurrence. What a game! It is a shame someone had to lose...but I am glad it was not the Flyers. If you get a chance...read some thoughts from this morning...[url]http://my.hockeybuzz.com/blog.php?post_id=4461&user_id=3682[/url] First, kudos to the Buffalo Sabres. They played a hell of a game and I thought we w...

BRIERE out Thursday vs. TB

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
The Flyers have Danny Briere officially listed as day to day with the right shoulder sprain suffered when he crashed into the boards in the 2nd period Sunday against the Rangers.... But after seeing Briere myself after Tuesday nights game and talking to a couple of people close to the situation, I feel confident to say Briere will definitely NOT dress tomorrow night agai...
[img]http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee162/JHRIV/poltergeistFlyers.jpg?t=1206499452[/img] Just like that creepy little girl, Carol Ann, from "Poltergeist II" said, the Flyers have seriously thrust themselves back into playoff mix with a 2-1 Overtime victory against the Rangers tonight at MSG. Oh, and this one was against Lundy - not the backup. The Flyers very easi...

Mr. Everything skated in, dipped his shoulder, and calmly tucked the puck in the Five Hole of Cristobal Huet to seal the fate of the Caps. Mr. Hue...

Go Forth and Prospal

Posted Wednesday | Comments 3
Look back at this year's trade deadline and some of the players who were moved. Hossa to Pittsburgh. Campbell to San Jose. Richards to Dallas. Huet and Federov to Washington. Cam Janssen to St. Louis (just kidding). How about if I told you that a minor move at the deadline that went well under the radar has had a bigger impact than any of those? The Flyers have ...

Busts/Heroes

Looking at what Danny Briere has done during these playoffs, should we forget about his non-contract worthy regular season? Briere still had points to make a good season but not the season Philly signed him for. Here are his stats this year and last: GP G A P +/- PIM PP SH GW Shots % 2006-2007 Sabres 81 32 63 95 17 89 9 ...

In this blog we'll go back to this time last year and get some hindsight analysis of the UFA signings from last season. But first. It should be noted that the UFA process is not a way in which GM's look to find bargains or good prices on players. It's an all-out bidding war for the services of players who have earned the right to seek "fair" market value for their w...
It's Sunday morning and you spent all of last night basking in drink after drink. You were the life of the party, from what you remember anyway, and even that's a blur - almost seems like a lifetime ago. You're still gaining your senses this morning and you have a horrible feeling in the gut of your stomach. You don't want to do a THING today. Now you know what the S...
others never seem to change. Heading into the Flyers-Lightning game tonight you can start to see trends in the NHL with certain teams. The Flyers trend, dating back through 1st season in the "New NHL", it has been the streaks. They play hard and well defensively for 5-8 games and poorly for the same amount. Last season a hot streak brought the team to first in the NHL,...

Sunday night's game against Finland showed that this team can in fact change on the fly, and I'm not talking about the lines. Canada's game a...
If Philadelphia intends to win the Atlantic Division, much less get a home playoff series...they have to post AT LEAST 14 of the 22 points available in the month of February. Looking at their schedule its possible, but there are some positives and a few negatives that need to be addressed: 1) [i]Philadelphia plays 7 home games in February against Boston, Ottawa, NY Isl...

Saturday Morning Coffee

Steve Stamkos with the trick last week, welcome to the NHL kid. Alexi Kovalev sent home for being Alexi Kovalev. Sending him home won't work, Alexi is a flake you just have to deal with it. Ain't no party like a Kostitsyn brothers party because a Kostitsyn brother party don't stop. Get those two with the Staal brothers and we have trouble. Have you ever hit black ...
Its that time of year for Flyers Fans to start the "nail-biting" in regards to our goaltending issues. Biron is INCONSISTENT and cannot be relied upon to stop the puck in the playoffs. When he does make a save he is guilty of kicking the rebounds directly into the slot, resulting in incremental scoring opportunities. Last year Biron was the "X" factor in the Flyers post se...

Briere: Diamond or Dud?

Posted Monday | Comments 1
Daniel Briere has been a member of the Philadelphia Flyers for 2 seasons now. Over the last two years, many Flyers fans have been debating and quarreling over whether or not Briere is a) living up to his contract and b) whether or not the Flyers should deal him. Currently, Briere has 6 seasons left at an average of 6.5 mill on his hefty contract, and many are still wonderi...

There are many reasons why this is an amazing deal for Boston. First off, Savard is 32. They signed him through the 2016-2017 season, when Savard will then be 39 ...

Almost There.

Posted Monday | Comments 0
That is the sense I get from this Flyer team. Almost there. The offense is starting to play with a greater level of consistency than I've seen for most of the year. It might take some time after the Olympic break for the defensive pairs to gel as a cohesive unit., but it seems like they're getting there. As for the goaltending, I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised...

Doing Lines With the Flyers

Posted Friday | Comments 2
No, this isn't one of those scandalous stories with pictures of the Flyers getting wild at parties. Any Flyers fan can tell you that it's been a frustrating year of high expectations and largely disappointing performance from the guys in Orange and Black. A roster full of talent with the scoring consistency of Sami Kapanen (sorry Sami, I love ya but...). One can...

Miller Quiets His Critics

HSBC Arena erupted Wednesday night as 18,690 fans rose out of their seats in complete unison, awestruck by Ryan Miller’s phenomenal performance. Chants of “Ry-an Mil-ler, Ry-an Mil-ler” rang out amongst the electric crowd who had once again witnessed brilliance as their franchise goalie stood on his head right before their very eyes. The sound that roared throu...

...I think Brendan Shanahan will do a great job as the new league disciplinarian. He has the combination of playing experience, intelligence and common sense to understand how the game should be played and officiated. ...I'm NOT REALLY DIGGING the new Predators home uniforms. Maybe when I see them in game action my mind will change, but right now, I'm reminded too much ...
Once an offer sheet is laid out by a team all of the other team’s fans start to wonder why their team is not doing it. Jamie Benn, Suban, or however you want to talk about are not going to be let go via offer sheet, it’s very rare. If they do get the sheet they don’t move very often, most clubs will match and trade later when they can control the return. So are...
Follow me on Twitter @PHI_Flyers First off, in case you didn't hear.. the Flyers sent an official trade offer to the Ducks for Bobby Ryan. Philly would be shipping off Meszaros, Read, Laughton, and a 1st Rd pick in '13. Ultimately, I would be okay with this trade. Matt Read had a great rookie season and I don't see him following in the footsteps of Leino in a product...

[b]Why You Should Pass on Being Giroux's RW[/b] Actually a joke as many players would kill to play with such an elite player but this year G's right wingers have been having some serious bad luck. First Hartnell breaks his foot and now earlier this week in an intense rivalry game with the Pens, Matt Read tore rib muscles and is out for 6 weeks. Injuries in general are pla...
Friends, fans and upper management we gather here today to look back upon the Flyers career of the only player we know who can actually flick a switch when games matter. Danny Briere came to the Flyers in July of 2007 and gave this organization hope, that even after an abysmal season star players still wished to play in the City of Brotherly Love. We had all hoped for ...
As of midnight today, teams around the NHL are able to start talking to unrestricted free agents. With no deal being done yet for right winger David Clarkson, it is pretty much almost certain that he will not be returning to New Jersey next season. If he does choose to leave, the Devils will certainly need replace his scoring help on the wings. To be honest, I did not ...

Thoughts on Briere Deal

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
Daniel Briere, as reported by Pierre LeBrun, has agreed to terms to a 2-year $8 million deal with the Montreal Canadiens. With that in mind, I thought I'd weigh in with my thoughts on the deal. I actually like the deal. Briere, though no spring chicken at 34, is still a useful winger who can play top six minutes. Despite his age, he can still produce offence, as evidenc...
George Laraque spoke to the La Presse in MTL today about Bergevins decision to bring in Parros. Laraque has been negative towards the Canadiens since they told him to leave halfway into his 3 year contract. I do believe it is jealously. 7th round pick and a terrible prospect for a 6'5 228 pound fighter whose won a cup is a great deal. Parros won't be playing every night as...

Meet the New Avs

Posted Tuesday | Comments 2
July 1st 2014 began very horribly for Colorado Avalanche fans as they found out Centre Paul Stastny signed a 4 year (overpaid) contract with rival St. Louis Blues. As the day went on, the Avalanche made a few moves that could be questionable yet could turn out to be great. What Colorado got: Jesse Winchester, 30, had 18 points (9g/9a) in 52 games for the Florida...
[b]Follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/DailyNHLGrind[/b] The Colorado Avalanche won their first game of the 2014-15 NHL season in Boston on Monday. The afternoon game ended with a 2-1 score after Daniel Briere scored the game-winning goal in the third period with less than a second left on the clock. The teams played a hard fought offensive game for 60 minutes ...
[b]Follow me on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/DailyNHLGrind[/b] It was only a matter of time. The Colorado Avalanche finally unleashed the offensive weapons and defeated the Vancouver Canucks 7-3.
