The Canucks aren't going to have much money to spend, so I don't expect any big-name free agent signings. [b][u]Out[/b][/u] • Jan Bulis • Bryan Smolinski • Brent Sopel [b][u]In[/b][/u] • Ruslan Fedotenko • Wade Brookbank or any other enforcer • Marc Chouinard (for training camp) Daniel Sedin ($3.575M) | Henrik Sedin ($3.575M) | Taylor Pyatt ($1.5...
For those outside of Buffalo, just an interesting little story.... I called HSBC Arena yesterday. I was hoping to buy season tickets. The response I got: "We're all maxed out for next season. We can take your name down for the waiting list though." What? It's not like I waited til the last minute. Last year I ordered my tix in August and had no problem. You...
Congratulations to the Anaheim Ducks. An outstanding organization and a tremendous hockey team. They deserved everything they got. And now our lives fall back to normalcy. No more puck. At least not on the ice. It's a terribly sad time of year. At least we have the NBA Finals starting tomorrow, right? Major League Baseball is in full swing. And then football s...
Multiple league sources have informed the Sabres as the team chosen to represent the league in an "Ice Bowl" on the first day of 2008. The opponent, most likely,would be the Pittsburgh Penguins as it should. The combination of Sidney Crosby and Malkin copuled with facing an appointent who's fans will fill the Ralph in a matter of hours will be outstanding. The genius behin...

Rookie predictions

Posted Thursday | Comments 28
1.) Nicklas Backstrom- Will be playing with Ovechkin this coming season so I see him setting Ovi up for alot of goals. Should get alot of time on the PP so I see him putting up some serious points. 2.) Carey Price- I'm going on a limb here saying that he will make the Canadians this year and will steal the starting role from Huet. After seeing what this kid is capable o...
As the Sabres drop the puck on their 2007-2008 season tonight at HSBC Arena, I thought I'd share my outlook for this year. I'm a devout Sabres fan, have been following the team since the Mogilny/LaFontaine era (I'm only 21), and I've studied the history of the team too, back to the French Connection days. I've stuck with the team through the really bad, the bankruptcy,...
With the 2007/2008 NHL season reaching the halfway mark it dawned on me that 14/28 players (according to nhlnumbers.com) are UFA's or RFA's. Seeing as this team seems to be having consistency problems it may not be such a bad thing to start fresh with some new players and get rid of some of the older ones. With that being said, here are who I think the Wild should try to k...

Monday: The BIG Day

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
This Monday at 8PM we will be able to witness the lottery draft for the first overall pick in what is one of the deepest drafts in years. Right now, although it hasn't been solidified as definite, the Islanders sit in what appears to be the fifth worst spot, prompting the possibility of getting that 1st overall pick. Sure, many probably figure the odds are not on our si...
[b]Just another voice in the crowd...[/b] This is a personal observation, and in this, my inaugural blog on Hockeybuzz.com, please understand that I in no way speak for everyone. However in response to the listening, reading and observing I do on a daily basis, here's my take on the Nashville Predators' 2007-2008 season. I've been a Predators season ticket holder si...
[b]Beating a Dead Horse...Again.[/b] As expected, Nashville Tennessean columnist David Climer played the [i]'same ol' Predators'[/i] card this morning. Most local Nashville writers have chosen to take the 'glass half-full' approach regarding the Predators Game Six series-ending loss to Detroit, but of course David wouldn't be David if he didn't demonstrate his fair-w...
http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/story?id=4704620&page=1 So apparently Sean Avery has decided to work for Vogue. I just keep thinking of him in place of Anne Hathaway in The Devil Wears Prada. Ridiculous. More to come on the tonight's playoff matches.
These picks are just my opinion please leave your thoughts and ill try to give back explanations of any questions. 1. Steven Stamkos,Sarnia Sting, Center (6’1, 180 pounds), Canadian 2. Drew Doughty, Guelph Storm, Defensemen (6’0, 213 pounds), Canadian 3. Zach Bogosian, Peterborough Petes, Defensemen (6’2, 200 pounds), American 4. Alex Pietrangelo, Niag...
Oh boy, Rumors Rumors Rumors! What will we hear today at 4:00Pm Pacific? The Canucks Have Drafted Kyle Beach. The Canucks Have Traded the 10th pick and and player for the number 2 pick. The Canucks Have Sent Ryan Kesler and the 10th pick for Olli Jokinen. I am expecting the Canucks to take Kyle Beach, and [b][u][i]NOT[/i][/u][/b] make any [b][u][i]big[/i][/u][/b...
select Luca Sbisa. This young man is projected to be the replacement for Kimmo Timonen on the powerplay in a few year's time. He is a puck moving, mobile defenseman with good hockey sense and lots of offensive upside. This Swiss Dman, from Lethbridge of the WHL, scored 6 goals, had 27 assists for 33 points lat year to go along with 63 penalty minutes. Sbisa led his tea...
Everyone knows that Rounds 1 and 2 produce the most NHL caliber players. This blog reveals my personal opinion of the 2008 draft rounds 3 thru 7 sleeper picks... [u][b]Mr Big's Late Round Sleepers[/b][/u] _____round 3 #63 Kings -Robert Czarnik (c) #66 Islanders - David Toews (c) #67 Flyers - Marc-Andre Bourdon (d) #72 Islanders - Jyri Niemi (d) #73 Islanders...
With the current roster seemingly set in stone and the unlikely return of Mats Sundin who becomes the Leafs next captain? Many things have to be considered here like who has the heart and who will be the best fit in the dressing room. Me I have to give my vote to Matt Stajan he has been around long enough to know how the team works. He has heart and really takes the re...
[b]Re-signed Chuck Kobasew[/b] The Bruins re-signed Kobasew to a new 3-year deal with a 2.3 cap hit. I'm probably not the only one who believes that Chucky would have made a huge difference in our 7-game quarterfinal war against the Habs. He potted 22 goals in 73 games during the regular season on a team that was usually referred to as offensively handicapped. Despite ...
It indeed has been a short summer for the Detroit Red Wings. By know everyone knows that the Wings added Marion Hossa to their lineup. He could have been the steal of the free agents especially since he signed quick and wanted to come play for Detroit. One thing I learned was that Hossa is good friends with Red Wings 4th liner, Tomas Kopecky. I expect this had a lot to...
I do this every year, just for fun. The so-called hockey experts have their say, and I figure why not have mine? I'm a huge hockey fan, I've been following the league since a youngster - my earliest memories the 93-94 season and the infamous 7-game series between the NY Rangers and Vancouver. So here I go.

With the 2008 pre-season almost drawing to a close, it's the time of year when every fan is filled with hope and optimism about their teams chances to look competitive or maybe do well or even take home the cup. Leaf fans get to predict that they will have a defense this year; Islander fans get to hope they have someone who scores at least 50 points; Shark fans get to bel...
Eastern Conference: 1. Philadelphia- Their offense is arguably the best depth wise in the league, and they have some yound defensman that could really step up and do a good enough job to win the conference. And I think that Biron will do a good enough job as well. 2. Montreal- Fast, skilled, young, but I thinnk they will lose the conference by something as little ...
Tampa Bay gets: Krajicek: A solid D-man who should develop further into a serviceable top 4 defenseman, Krajicek was a good bonus in the Luongo theivery. However he was sloppy and expendable by Vancouver. Let's face it, when it comes to moving assets, the Canucks D-corps is the way to go, but 3 of their top 6 have no trade clauses. Tampa got a guy who can log better...
Western Conference 1. Detroit (Central Division champions). Take away a ten-game stretch late in the season, and last year's Wings were one of the best teams in NHL regular season history. This year's squad is better. 2. San Jose (Pacific Division champions). It is no secret Patrick Marleau and Ron Wilson did not see eye to eye the past couple of years. A coaching ch...
(forgive the non-hockey post my puckhead bretheren) Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Hoooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!! Been a long time....since 1980. I wasn't sure I was going to see one anytime soon. I was 12 when they last won it and will never forget Tug McGraw slapping the mitt on his leg as the city went into pandemonium. Fast forward to Brad Lidge as...
I know I'm getting ahead of myself, but next offseason is going to be interesting. With the CAP not expected to move much next year and potentially could go down the following year, GMs have to be carful with their money [b][u]Forwards[/u][/b] Next year we have Briere, Richards, Gagne, Carter, Lupul, Hartnell, Metropolit, Asham, and Cote signed to 1-way contracts. ...
As we start to turn the corner on summer, it's just about time to start gearing our minds towards next season's draft. To kick things off, let's take a look back to see which players had the strongest finish to the 2008-09 season. We'll ignore the obvious players who were strong from start to finish, and focus on players that turned it on in the last quarter. It's not ...
