Is there one piece still missing ? With over 17 million left in Cap space, O'Reilly will get a raise somewhere around the 3+ million mark Jamie McGinn should get a raise probably around 1.5-2 million area. Leaving close to 12+ Left so Im thinking between 3-4 million on another top 6 forward would be a bonus plus you must lose salary with a D-man going somewhere hate to say...

We'll be fine....

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
Okay so its August and on paper The Red Wings look worse then the team that lost in the first round to Nashville. However the encouraging aspect of the Wings is GM Ken Holland always finds a way to find talent, and with Mike Babcock behind the bench, there will be chemistry with the core of Datsyuk and Zetterberg. We should still be in the playoff picture, hopefully St...
I honestly can't believe we are almost at the start of another season. One that I promise you will begin with no lockout... just don't see it happening this time. What I will be looking at is those players who I believe will surprise and contribute to your fantasy team (If not a "surprise" they will definitely improve from last year). This will be solely on [b]POINTS[/b...
This is Part 2 of my fantasy outlook blog, for those of you who missed Part 1 on [b]players[/b], please check it out here: [url]http://my.hockeybuzz.com/blog.php?user_id=96143&post_id=13915[/url] Wonderful. So, just as a refresher, the basis of this blog is to assess those fantasy assets who I see taking a step up in the 2012/2013 season. Although that doesn'...
So I got married 18 days ago, and ventured off on my honeymoon. I left knowing that the risk of a lockout was coming up. For 10 days, I didn’t look for much information, mainly due to the fact that I was sitting in the middle of the Caribbean without cell phone signal. Plus, I didn’t want to pay the money for wi-fi on the boat. When I got back to Fort Lauderdale, and h...
Ladies and gentlemen, after I constructed a math system last year to try to project numbers and the worth of players in a mathematical spectrum, I made a couple of tweaks here and there and bring you a taste of what’s to come. Not only will I give you the best and the worst, I will be highlighting the players moving in deals to see which team wins according to a system ...
Imagine you are the crew chief of an Indy Car team, and you were just informed that this year’s Indianapolis 500 has been rescheduled as the “Indy 275”. That’s pretty much the challenge that has been put in front of NHL GMs, coaches, and players. With a 48 game schedule, this season will have a unique character. A hot streak will give that much more of an advantage...
It's the quarter mark of the Nhl shortened season, so here is my prediction. Eastern Conference 1. Boston Bruins 2. New Jersey Devils 3. Carolina Hurricanes 4. Pittsburgh Penguins 5. New York Rangers 6. Toronto Maple Leafs 7. Montreal Canadiens 8. Philadelphia Flyers 9. Washington Capitals 10. Tampa Bay Lightning 11. Winnipeg Jets 12. Ottawa Senators 13. ...
The 2013 draft class has been called one of the deepest in decades where the top 5 picks are “can’t miss” prospects, the next five could very well make any NHL roster next year, and the next 30 would be first rounders in most other draft classes. Seth Jones is a very intriguing prospect he has great size, a great shot, and is a proven winner at every level he plays ...
-[b]For[/b] the last year I've been reading comment after comment regarding what the oilers need to do to improve and take the next step. "We need to get tougher" "Top 6 forward, #1 Dman and 2 bottom 6 gritty vets with size" "Were not going to be able to this and that because we wont move our younger core players". -[b]For [/b]me, going into next...

There is no doubt the Rangers took a step backwards in 2012-2013. Glen Sather shook up the entire team with many offseason moves last summer. As we saw they were moves that destroyed team chemistry and divided a locker room. Now add in the shortened season because of the lockout and it spelled disaster for the Rangers from top to bottom. John Tortorella lack of patience an...

Flyers Offseason Outlook

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
Coming off a wildly disappointing season that saw Philadelphia miss the playoffs for the first time since 2007, we all knew that Paul Holmgren would have his hands full this summer. With the cap dropping $6M and the Flyers already needing to shed a hefty contract just in order to be compliant, Homer is stuck with a tricky deck to work with. So what's in the cards with P...
Ok so im sure this will change closer to the draft, but here is my mock draft from now! (please note by placing Bruins 29th and Hawks 30th doesnt mean i think Hawks win it, they have the better record hence worse pick) 1.

2013 NHL Mock Draft

Posted Monday | Comments 0
With the NHL entry draft just around the corner and with all the controversy sorrounding it this year, I thought I should put in my two cents. With this being a deep draft year it will be interesting to see how it stacks up to the rest. So with no further ado, ladies and gentlemen, this is the Oilersrule66 2013 NHL mock draft. ____________________________________________...
Mock Draft 2013 By @Justinbeatty777: #1 – Colorado – Seth Jones Why: All-Star future number one defenseman who could pass him up. Avs need a number one dmen for their future plans. But however Roy has a future with Nathan and has watched him a lot and loves his play so it could go either way. #2 – Florida – Nathan MacKinnon Why: A beauty to watch, a workh...

My 2013 NHL Mock Draft

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Like many others here, I really enjoy speculating about prospects and the draft and this year's draft seems to have the potential to be pretty exciting. I'm not going to pretend to be an expert or anything, because I'm not. The only players I know well is the three London knights slated to go in the first round from taking in quite a few knights games in the past two years...
Follow me on Twitter @flamesfan1981 There have been plenty of 1st round mock drafts in which we all have ideas on what player will be drafted in what range. In this blog I am going to break down all of the Flames picks, from rounds 1 through 7 and determine who should be drafted at that position based on the Flames strategy of "best player available". Here are the...
There seems to be some debate on whether it's a better draft strategy to draft for organizational need or draft the best available player. If you look back to the 2010 NHL draft (Taylor vs. Tyler) the Oilers had to choose between the best available player (Taylor Hall) and the player who filled an organizational need (Tyler Seguin). Oiler fans were divided as both team ...

Leafs Off Season Thoughts

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
This off season figures to be an exciting one for Leaf fans. With one significant trade already completed (Bernier) and an exciting draft and free agency ahead of us, there should be plenty to talk about in the weeks ahead. First, I want to look at the goaltenders. This appears to be set already, as Bernier and Reimer give us a good 1-2 punch where both have solids sta...
There's nothing I enjoy more than the days leading up to the NHL Draft. Last year was the first time in the past 3 years I didn't write my mock draft, and it just didn't feel right. So this year, I'm back again to share my thoughts on how the 2013 NHL Draft might go. This is a strong year in my eyes, with 5 players who could dramatically change the fortunes of a few lucky ...

If Carolina is looking to trade the 5th pick, as a Flames fan I think that they should go all out to try and get it. For the Flames, the ideal is to get Nathan MacKinnon. But there is no way that is going to happen. At least not while completely crippling the roster. While MacKinnon will be a franchise somewhere, the steps needed to get to that pick will set the re...
Follow me on Twitter: @flamesfan1981 The 2013 NHL Entry Draft was probably the single most important draft in the history of the Calgary Flames franchise. Flames brask has made it clear they intend to rebuild the team properly and made the promise to fans they would draft the 'Best Player Available' in order to fulfill the needs of the organization. Did Jay Feaster an...
I won’t take anything away from right wing David Clarkson. When he deploys his A-game, Clarkson is a rugged power forward with tons of offensive upside, the type of player any team would want. With that said, I cannot put enough emphasis on the wording of that previous sentence, more particularly, the first five words of it, an allusion to the glaring shortcomings that h...
[b]Twitter : @ProspectReport[/b] I checked out the Calgary Flames' scrimmage today, and just felt it necessary to post a few thoughts, going over who impressed, and who didn't. It's going to be a quick blog. For those who don't follow me on twitter, I run my own scouting service, and cover the Flames for a few sites - just starting to post here as well. Mark Jankowsk...
It seems the Sabres may be done with free agency and trades for the upcoming year. Honestly I am ok with that. I wish we could have picked up a veteran forward to help score goals and help the youngers guys but all in all I am looking into the season with optomism. Do I think the Sabres have a contending team? No. Do I think they are a borderline playoff team? No. To me th...
Minnesota Wild 2013 Training Camp Good, Bad, and Ugly. By: Tony Dean @AWKD The Good -The Wild will begin training camp with their most talented roster of players from top to bottom ahead of the 2013-14 NHL season. The Wild seemingly have a balanced mix of veterans in the prime of their career and young players on the verge of elevating their game to the NHL level. ...
