Dubas' Comedy of Errors

Posted 10:57 AM ET | Comments 8
I have been rather critical of several GMs in the past that have certainly proven me wrong - namely Sakic's situation a few years ago about how his team lacked an identity, and Yzerman's dealing with Stamkos even though I believe that situation was still handled clumsily - and I have defended some of Chiarelli's moves - that Griffin Reinhart deal with Barzal was available ...

10. Patrick LaineOf all the entries on this list, Laine ’s inclusion is a bit of an oddity. It’s not like the young sniper had a terrible season. He still hit the 30-plus goal plateau and finished the year with a more than respectable 50 points. It’s just his numbers could have been so much better. After a somewhat slow start to the season, Laine went absolutely on...

Draft - Oilers Edition

Posted 11:23 PM ET | Comments 8
The draft can not get here soon enough. Mostly as it should be the start of Holland fixing the Oilers. I can say this with certainty because they can't get anymore broken. Also the draft's arrival will stop sites like TSN.ca claiming that Kakko is " closing the gap " on Hughes. There is no actual gap. NJ is picking one player and that is going to be Hughes. Are they lo...

New Jersey Devils (NJD) did not make it to the playoffs this season (2018-2019). Since then both Taylor Hall and Ray Shero have stated that NJD needs more talent. This prompted a lot of fans to look toward the UFA and the RFA class of 2019 in order to fill in the roster spots.This article only looks at those few RFA players that the fan base wants to offer sheet. There ...

In truth when it comes to hockey these are the teams I'm most often watching.Even though I'm a Habs fan I have always found it fun to follow the Leafs as well. I do live in Toronto, but even if I didn't I still would. They are the Habs best rival and they are super fun to stack up against one another. The Leafs in my opinion have trended in the right direction for qu...

Been a while, [expletive removed for reasons]!In honour of the latest bout of disappointment the Oilers chose to throw at us, I figured now would be a great time to review my targets from last offseason and quantify whether I'm more or less disappointing than my favourite team! First, we ought to set the bar: by how many criteria did the Oilers disappoint? 1.) " Compete...

Is Holland a great GM or is Holland a terrible GM? Both statements are lies and both are truths. Why is that, like any other GMs and even his Oiler predecessor, he has had trouble during the cap era. The question is how much is his fault and how much has he learned.One of the greatest things of his Red Wings dynasty days and passed was the ability to assess talent and dr...

The Carolina Hurricanes are dominating the NHL playoffs at 5v5, but their special teams play has left much to be desired.Carolina ’s weakness in the playoffs has been their penalty kill and power play units struggling to find success. The Hurricanes poor special teams play nearly wasted a dominating possession performance against Washington. Tampa found out just how da...

First Move by Gretzky. Keith that is and a good one IMO.Moving Cam Talbot to Philly in exchange for young tendy Anthony Stolarz was a good move.Good for both goalies. We all know that the deal was to make cap space for Sekera ’s return.The Oil benefits from a younger tendy that can put compete on Koskinen. You don’t think Stolarz is going to want to prove himself...

Look I know that many think the all star is stupid, a farce, hurts the league and doesn't belong. Many seem to forget this is mainly an event for kids and hence why the nhl keeps it and continues to try and improve it. Some of it has worked. Lately people seem to get into the 3 on 3 tournament. Here are some ideas I think would improve the game for the fans. 1st - Keep t...

Leafs are A Mess! A Shakeup Is Needed!Since the Toronto Maple Leafs finally were able to sign William Nylander to a deal, this club has instantly turned into a mess. A bad mess; whereas before the Nylander signing things were a good mess.Both Auston Matthews and William Nylander Hurting the Team, Nowhere Near 100% I think the deal for Nylander is fair, $6.9 million ca...

On Alzner...rnSo after one of the stupidest free agent signings of all time,we have finally acknowledged reality and put Karl Alzner on waivers. Obviously its the right move, but its disconcerting that the vast majority of the fan base which I am in contact with knew that this was a brutal move at the time we made it. Regardless, the right move has been made, now if we ...

The Pacific Division Gives Thanks

Posted 8:50 PM ET | Comments 1
Many hockey insiders believe American Thanksgiving to be the time of year where NHL General Managers sit down, take a hard look at their rosters, and evaluate where they are and where their season could be headed. Most teams have played roughly 20 games by this point, so by this time many GMs have developed a solid understanding of what is working for their club, and what ...

CBJ Game No 6 v Philadelphia Flyers

Posted 6:41 PM ET | Comments 6
October 18, 2018The Jackets are in a gritty metropolitan division battle tonight against the Philadelphia Flyers. The Flyers and Jackets are similar and different in a lot of ways. The Flyers and Jackets have young offensive groups, but they Flyers is stronger; they both have elite young defensemen, with the Jackets more prominent, and the Flyers having more in numbers; ...

As the season begins (and the Nylander saga drags on), many Leaf fans find themselves searching for ways to reassure themselves that the Buds will be able to secure all of their core pieces long-term. While adding Tavares was undoubtedly an excellent move, it has certainly muddied the waters in terms of the club ’s ability to lock down the trio of Matthews, Marner, and Ny...
