Buffalo Sabres

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
Believe it or not it is exciting to be a Sabre's fan. I have been all my hockey life and so much I named my daughter after the team back in 1999! It's exciting because for the first time since the drafting of Thomas Vanek we will get to pick hiiiiiigh in the draft with a chance of getting the number 1 pick in the draft. Right now it's hard to say who to pick or if to tr...
I have been thinking about the upcoming NHL Season and I think I have a pretty good grasp on every teams attempted identity change. In the next few days I will write a preview on every NHL team and then try my best to predict the league standings around the NHL Trade Deadliine in early March. So lets get right into it: [b]Anaheim Ducks[/b] The Ducks finished #1 in th...

Wishlist for 2015-2016

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
It's the middle of April! That, as every Oilers fan knows is the beginning of seeing every idiot with access to a computer begin to post their own plans on what they would do to improve the team. So without further adieu I present this idiots plan on what I would do to improve the team. As it stands right now, this is the opening roster for next season (ignoring UFA's) ...

New Idea About Drafting

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Since I love to innovate and work on broken systems, I have yet another method to help "fix" the draft. What was the worst team in the league last year? Well... it depends... what stat are you looking at? Enter the problem. I'm a big fan of the Devils, admittedly, so I would like the idea of the Devils drafting a breakout forward to help fix the offensive woes that ...

29 Teams. 29 Defensemen Pt 2.

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Back by popular demand, it's the conclusion of my 29 defensemen blog. Once again, this is a blog to talk about defensemen I feel could be acquired [b]for the right price[/b]. The second first round pick was a piece I chose to simply start the conversation. In no way was I suggesting that Kris Russell is worth the 16th pick; or that the pick alone could get Brent Seabrook. ...
The NHL Draft is quickly approaching (June 26th and 27th) as the Conference Final playoff round heats up. Who might your favorite team be selecting in rounds 1-3? [u]Round 1[/u] 1) Edmonton Oilers – C [b]Connor McDavid[/b], Erie - The Oilers having been getting pieces and more pieces to the puzzle and now they can finish it off with the biggest of them all. ...

Fixing the Third Line

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Watching the Western Conference Final (and if you aren't then shame on you) makes it abundantly clear how far the Oilers are from being a Cup contender. We all know the work that needs to go in to improving the defence and the goal-tending. That is a given. Unfortunately it is the current makeup of forwards that is cause for concern as well. Anaheim is getting production f...
This year's draft looks particularly strong; the free agent pool looks exactly the opposite of that. But next year's free agents will make you salivate. Now, more than ever, teams are starting to prevent their players from bolting for free, since it damages their franchise too much when it does happen. Nobody wants to have the forward core of the NJ Devils right now. ...
Every team is looking to trade up. I mean, I had a choice when I looked into my freezer this morning: plain Eggos or Cinnamon Toast Eggos. The longer you look at them, the more tempted you are. You have to think it's always an option and virtually every team (except Edmonton) is a candidate. Also, teams always seem to covet picks that are slated to go three to five...
First of all, i want to introduce myself, that you have a feeling who is going to write :D My name is Tom, 30 years and a native of Bavaria, Germany so please be not so hard on me if there are gramatical mistakes. There were irritating rumors that the Oil own 5 of the first 63 picks, but our own 3rd round pick was traded and we have the 79th and 86th pick instead from ...
You know what this is! Why give some long drawn out explanation with a thesis paragraph and other formulaic writing nonsense? (Not that I'm not guilty of using the odd trope here and there!). Cite me if I'm wrong and laugh in my face... go ahead, do it! NOTES: 1. Some of the prices I put forth would be ridiculous in any other year, but because of the really strong cro...
1. Edmonton Oilers: Connor McDavid, C. Not much to say here. The Oilers will pick the generational talent from the Erie Otters. 2. Buffalo Sabres: Jack Eichel, C. Barring a cognitive meltdown, it’s safe to say Sabres’ GM Tim Murray will be calling Mr. Eichel’s name with the No. 2 pick. Hard to be upset about missing out on McDavid when this guy is your consolatio...
Posted this in the Leafs thread a few days ago. Edmonton: Connor McDavid. Yadda.. Yadda.. Buffalo: Jack Eichel. Yadda. Arizona: Dylan Strome. Contending in that division will be difficult without a horse at centre to hitch your wagon to. Could end up being the best player available. Toronto: Mitch Marner. Skill is important. Apparently. Carolina: Noah Hani...
If Mike Babcock and the Toronto Maple Leafs are serious about bringing talented Ontario born players to the club, the upcoming NHL Draft could be their biggest opportunity. Friday in Sunrise, Fla., comes Toronto’s next chance to draft the first key piece to the rebuild and some believe they will concentrate on local talent, a notion that the new Leafs’ bench boss ha...

I have a dream...

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
I have a dream.... that the Oilers can get impact young d-men to help with their cause now...rnrnSeem like a bit of a stretch? Maybe, but there might be a few trade scenarios that could work well for both sides, therefor making it a viable deal, even in this cap-crazy world we call the NHL.rnrnFirst off, let me just say that I love all the Oilers young forwards. I believe ...
It is more than likely that the NHL will be expanding. Now we don’t know where the league is expanding too yet, or how many teams it will be adding, but for this list let’s say two teams and their both in the west, (Sorry Quebec Nordiques fans). For this list I will be using the rules of the 2000 draft as well as a few additional rules. ---2000 NHL expansion dr...
The 2014-2015 season gave Habs fans a lot to think about, after the Regular Season success and a unwanted, but half expected early exit from the Playoffs.rnrnThis article will cover the play of Carey Price and how NHL Fans view the All Star. The most common question revolves on the success of the Habs laying strictly on the Goaltender. If that is the case, the play of P...
Hockey is back and everything seems right again. In my opinion, preseason is one of the best times of the year. Seeing the prospects (and potential future of an organization) vying for a spot alongside guys in new sweaters and returning faces has always given me a fresh outlook and optimism for the upcoming season. Coming into this year, I have the same optimism I hav...
So... is it draft day yet? As of today the Oilers once again find themselves in the familiar spot of last in the Western Conference. With a record of 6-12-0 it's becoming increasingly difficult to find arguments that this team is improving. With that being said, let's compare the first 12 loses of this season, with the first 12 from last season. So far this season, of t...
With ten games remaining, this year can once again be summarized for Oiler fans as a disappointment. While injuries have played a huge factor in the teams current position it cannot be denied that consistency and defensive woes have also played a huge roll. Now that we are a couple weeks past the trade deadline I thought now would be as good a time as any to look back on e...
