If somebody told you in 2009 that the Edmonton Oilers would have four first-overall draft picks in 6 years, you'd probably laugh at them. Well, we now live that horrendous reality, and only half of those players selected first-overall still play with the Oilers.In order of years since 2010, Edmonton has selected in the first round; Taylor Hall - Selected first-overall in...

I had a dream

Posted 1:41 AM ET | Comments 2
It was marvelous. The Oilers led by McDavid and Draisaitl didn't need to consistently put up 5+ goals to win games. Instead, led by not as many superhuman efforts, the team was capable of winning games 2-1 or 3-2, as they weren't concerned about the tandem of Smith and Koskinen fishing the puck out of the net after every third shot. This confidence also rolls into the play...

Hextall was brought in as the Pittsburgh GM to right the ship due to his experience in building winners. The logic of ownership being that Hextall knows how to build a team up and Pittsburgh desperately needing it.It's a match made in heaven as years of cup-chasing and draft pick splurges have left Pittsburgh in hockey purgatory. Good enough maybe for a 7th-10th spot, b...

Here are three reasons why the Habs will win the North Division! I dont think you can disagree on any of the below and if you do, please comment! rnrn1. Superior tendies:rnrnThe 2020-21 NHL season is a 56-game sprint with 11 back to backs for the Habs played over 116 days. Having two superior tendies is very key to a team ’s success. The Habs have Carey Price (save %. 90...

ARE THE SABRES A PLAYOFF TEAM?

Posted 12:47 PM ET | Comments 12
When the 2021 Sabres team finally hits the ice mid-January, at minimum, 310 days will have passed since the last time they stepped off as 3-2 SO winners over the Washington Capitals.That team was just trying to get to the finish line of yet another playoff-less campaign. Eichel had done all he could to try and drag them into relevancy...but he would again come up short. ...

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...

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 13
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...
