31 Wacky Predictions

Posted 11:22 PM ET | Comments 3
As I get my self acquainted with this new NHL I am taking a page out of Ek's book and writing some wacky predictions I think will happen this year (or like I am sure a lot of people are saying next year). I have never covered the entire league like this before. Hope you enjoy!To be clear, with in these predictions I am working in a frame work that there will be 4 divis...

Looking at the Habs offseason their focus was to add scoring depth and get tougher. They arguably have done that in Toffoli and Anderson.But what do we expect these two to bring to the table? Lets see how they do:Playing a full season:Toffoli- I don't have much fear with him in this one. He played pretty much full seasons the last three years. He did get knocked out...

Solidifying the C

The Columbus Blue Jackets have had a busy offseason for themselves thus far, and it is yet to be over. The surrounding teams in their division were also extremely active as well. With that out of the way, lets focus on what was done within before going externally with reviews by team and where I think they will finish. Let's start at home... The Columbus Blue Jackets had ...

2020 NHL Mock Draft part 2

Posted 8:08 PM ET | Comments 4
Part two of my NHL Mock Draft.9. Minnesota Wild: Cole PerfettiThe Wild luck out with Perfetti dropping a few spots. Perfetti was second in OHL scoring with 111 points.10. Winnipeg Jets: Anton LundellWinnipeg has issues on the backend with the loss of Byfuglien, Trouba and Myers but they go with Lundell. Lundell plays similarly to Mikko Koivu. A solid two-way...

Blame Dubas, Why did Keefe load up the first line? Dubois' fault for injuring Muzzin. None of these of the reasons. Did they help, no it did hurt but this team is flawed and many know it.First, this team needs to mature in a different way. They need to realize what playoff hockey is. Losing to Washington and Boston both times was wow we gave it all we got they were the b...

The Jets had to make many difficult decisions over the offseason. Ultimately, I feel Chevy did a great job allowing guy Meyers to walk for a massive overpayment, and Trouba brought a great return. Many were obsiously upset with how the Buff situation went down, and I was too. Hindsight being 20/20, it's far better that Buff waited out the Trouba deal, or the Jets would hav...

Nine years.If you think where you were nine years ago...how much your life has changed...and how much you know now, that you didn ’t know then...it really brings into question the actual sanity of those who have called themselves a fan of the Buffalo Sabres since before that time.- 691 games- 431 ending in defeat - 7 different coaches- 4 different GM ’s- dropp...

1. Cancel the NHL draft (picks would just all move back a year, so if you have 3 1sts this year, you get them next year instead).There was an opportunity in 2005 absolutely wasted. They could have simply cancelled the draft and changed the minimum draft age to 19**Every year, up to three to five players at 18 are NHL ready. Sometimes none are ready. Perhaps if you w...

With the United States ’ Center for Disease Control issuing a recommendation of a nationwide eight-week moratorium on gatherings of 50 or more people (and just to clarify, you need more than 50 people, even at minimum, to run empty-arena games), rumors abound of what the NHL can do, if anything, to save some form of 201 9-2020 season while still remaining compliant with th...

Avalanche Season

Posted 12:54 AM ET | Comments 11
It is officially Avalanche season and prepare yourselves folks, it's gonna be a long one. Name me another team that could be without Mikko Rantanen, Cale Makar, Nazem Kadri, Matt Calvert, Colin Wilson and starting goaltender (Gruby) and STILL keep rolling through the league... Don't worry i'll wait... Sure it was the lowly and I mean LOWLY Detroit Redwings, but ask Leaf...

The Calgary Flames marched into Tampa Bay looking to rebound from a disappointing loss to the Nashville Predators a few nights ago. A game in which while they weren ’t awful, they weren’t good enough to win. They had some good looks, but with .1 seconds left let the Predators tied up the game. Overtime they went, and the Flames dropped the game. Perhaps they deserved a ...

After tonight, there is no reason why the Sharks could not make a push into the playoffs. Sure, the division has many competitive teams, but none are taking control of their destiny. The Canucks lost to an outdated Minnesota roster, and to make things worse, Pettersson missed the game due to a lower body injury. Jay Beagle and Jake Virtanen were injured as well, but cam...

The Winnipeg Jets are a relatively talented hockey team. Their top six forwards have as much finishing talent as any team in the NHL with Patrik Laine, Mark Scheifele, Nikolaj Ehlers, and Kyle Connor. They have the dominant pairing of Andrew Copp and Adam Lowry who can virtually shut down opponents and even create some offence regardless of who the right winger is on tha...

I'm gonna come right outta the gate and say what qualifies as sacrilege within the Oilers community: Darnell Nurse is the Oilers' best Dman and attempts to trade him under the pretense that his minutes could be replaced by Klefbom aren't just wrong, they're blind to statistically observable reality. I guess I should actually get to the evidence before asserting things so s...

The recent firing of Mike Babcock was celebrated in some circles and by certain players. It is always unfortunate when anyone loses their job; even if Babcock will be paid millions of dollars post firing - something most of us would never have the luxury of. “Keep Grinding” Babcock had his faults but also had his tried and tested methods. Example: his 17 minute to the...
