After the great let down that was watching our most hated rival clean our clocks in the Eastern Conference Final it was left to the commonwealth of Sabres fans to figure out what went wrong. Many comparisons to the previous year began to emerge and it gave me the idea of actually watching some taped games to see if their really was a difference between the two teams. Wh...
With the additions of Briere, Uphsall, Lupul, Hartnell, Timonen, Smith, Kukkonen, Coburn, Biron since last season, have the Flyers put themselves back into the playoffs? [b]Gagne-Briere-Knuble[/b] With the additions of a dynamic player like Briere to take the place of Forsberg, does the Flyers first line have chemisty problems? or does Briere step in and fill...

Re-thinking Ryder

Posted Thursday | Comments 5
I know many Habs fans want to trade Ryder asap and I am not sure I'm unwilling to trade him for the right piece of the puzzle, but consider the following before we ship him off to become a star somewhere else. From the Habs official site: MONTREAL - The natural goal scorer. Feared by goaltenders, revered by GMs across the NHL, Michael Ryder has earned his stripes a...
Like day and night, the change in the Pens performance against the Avs last night was good and bad. But it seems again that a few small lapses led to the wheels falling off the bus. Hold steady Pens fans! The ship is rocking, but we have the players who can steady it and get it going in the right direction. It was nice to see the Pens come out and play well in a very...
Well once again last night we saw how the Pens coaches, players, and fans have learned to loose rather than learn to win like they did in the 06-07 season. The Pens are through 5 of 9 games that I previously said would be the second most important part of their current year schedule, and are falling flat on their faces. They have been able to earn only 2 of the possible ...
[img]http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee162/JHRIV/flyersairplane.jpg?t=1205718259[/img] The last week in Flyerdom has been a rough one for fans of the Orange and Black. The team has gone from solidly holding the 8th seed and possibly moving up in the playoff standings to holding on for its life by the thinnest of threads. As the season began to unravel at the hands ...

Bettman; Savior or Destroyer?

Posted Friday | Comments 12
It has been 3 years since the lockout and 15 years since Bettman has taken over the job of NHL Commissioner. My question is this, has Gary Bettman helped our game or has he changed it too much far beyond recognition. Here are some pros and cons to consider, and please by all means add your own. I want to hear what fellow hockey lovers around the world think about the direc...

Hockey in the Summer

Posted Thursday | Comments 6
I've been checking this site on occasion this off season. Lately I've been thinking: What ever happened to seasonal sports? I love hockey. I'm 30 and have been playing hockey since I was a Mite. But the summer was for baseball. I can't think of a sport that my buddies and I didn't or don't play. And being interested in numerous sports, I watch what I have time for, ...

3 - 0 A Fluke???

Posted Sunday | Comments 2
The Canucks are now riding a 3-0 record, going un - beaten but was it a fluke? No way! Vancouver and it's prospects were working their butt off to win the last three games and that hard work has definitely been paying off. I mean, some prospects like Jannik Hansen (3 points in 2 preseason games) have been showing why they deserve to make this team while others like Matt Pe...

Are the Leafs really that bad?

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
This team has been plagued with injuries to their top scorer at the time Stajan, their top shut down defenseman in Finger and their two top puck moving defensemen in Kaberle and VanRyan. Had they stayed healthy and won 5 more games this team would be in a play-off spot but I think the coaching staff wanted this year to toughen these guys a bit more and their focus wasn'...

Blues? Playoffs?

Posted Tuesday | Comments 4
From 1980-2004 the St. Louis Blues were a staple in the NHL playoffs. Now after a 4 year layoff(counting the lockout year of 2004-2005) I like many other Blues fans are hoping the Blues can make the most of their last twenty games, continue their strong play, and win themselves a playoff spot. It was only a few weeks back that the Blues seemed a lock to finish ...
After the never ending articles and blogs about what the Rangers need to do with free agents and player moves, there's one thing that needs to be considered, how bad were the rangers? If you believe that they were just awful then yes, let's overhaul everything and toss Drury and Gomez and leave just the youngsters and pray that players we bring up from Hartford are good e...
Maybe saying the flames are the next redwings might be a bit of stretch but there roster is looking good for many years. This years line up should contend for the cup and like the wings there team starts with a solid defense. Is boumeester, phanuef and regher, compariable to lidstrom, rafalski and krownwall ? or maybe the question should can they develop into that trio? go...
Disclaimer: I don't know much about the contracts of each of the players. I know there are a good # that are FA but I'm not sure who they all are. This is a scenario built around the fact that the FA pool isn't very good this year and assuming many of these guys are re-signed cause there won't be many great options in the FA market. I was going through all the players t...

HEART

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
SOME COUNTRY'S HAVE IT AND OTHERS DON'T I think we all were able to see what wins hockey games. Kesler, Drury, Miller, those are the players that win you hockey games and time and time again they always come through. This win means so much to me, the USA, and all of BUFFALO. We as a city can finally win something as a country together, in hockey. Ryan Miller is an am...

Enough Allready!!!

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
The truth of the matter is I know how frustrating it is sitting and waiting for the Flames to make some sort reaction to a bitter season, But what is it that we (Flames Fans) want to hear? Really? Think about it!! Yes Sutter made a couple of knee-jerk deals, But If the Jokinen deal had worked out and say he had scored 40 goals and then they lost out in the playoffs, a...
Given my relative age the guys I saw play over the years or read about that really showed me toughness were the following guys: 1. Wendel Clark - he could score lead and fight the best all around player. 2. Doug Gilmour- he would never back down never give up never allowed himself to be beat up. 3. Darryl Sittler- he could score fight and lead both by example and ...

Trade in play.

Posted Monday | Comments 0
I have friends in low places but they tell me that the Leafs have offered Kabby, Beauchemin and Finger for Savvy and Wheeler whether or not this is the actual deal it is interesting that a group of Leaf defenders for 2 forwards. Interesting because if it does go through they'll go from having a glut on d to having a shortage in one grand swoop but they will have depth in t...

A shame. . .

Posted Sunday | Comments 1
Note - I'm in a sour mood after this game so sorry about the negativity. How does a team score 4 goals in the opening period still end up losing? How does a team that team prides itself on its defensive posture, give up 6 goals to a team arguably missing their best offensive player? How does a team, known to protect leads blow it on 5 separate occasions? Well let...
Is it just me, but I think it is painfully obvious that Brian Burke is going gangbusters after Parise. A team wishing to obtain Parise would have to have the assets, Toronto has just stock piled many in the last 12 months (Kadri, Colborne, Gardiner, 2 firsts etc...), and they would need a lot of cap room to sign a guy that is going to command close to the league max, Toro...

Osgood a Hall of Famer?

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Red Wings goaltender Chris Osgood retired today after 17 seasons in the NHL. Now comes what is sure to be a great and very hostile arguement over Osgoods hall of fame chances. I will give you all my opinion at the end of this blog but I am going to make a list of reasons why he should be in the hall of fame and reasons he should not be. Without further ado here are the ...

It is always a sad in the world let alone Hockey when a young person dies, Rick Rypien clearly was a person who not only fought others but had a big battle in his own head somehow the NHL is failing these guys to find the help they need. It's no secret that tough guys are always put in the spotlight to fight but that pressure more than any other guy is proven to be the mos...

Where are the Habs' Bloggers?

Is it just me or does it appear the further the Habs sink the less commentary we get from the Habs Bloggers? They sucked the joint out in Anaheim last night and not a peep from any Canadiens writer. Eric, Kamal, Hindle...anyone? I think the Habs organisation is sucking the life out of everyone involved....players, fans, now writers. I may have my most productive winter ...

John Ogrodnick

Posted Friday | Comments 0
My favorite Wing as a kid was Danny Grant, came over from the North Stars for Henry Boucha, playing on a line with Redmond and Dionne had fifty goals one year, injuries derailed his career shorty after. After that, it became Ogrodnick. Man could he shoot. Quiet, graceful player, when he was dealt to Quebec for Brent Ashton I was entering adulthood, 18 years old but st...

Who will the Wings add?

The wings are rolling over opponents, after losing the first two on a four game west coast trip, Jimmy Howard said the players rededicated themselves to playing tougher, the results? Seven wins in a row. Nonetheless, the Wings are a little short on the outside, Hudler has been Hudler, Cleary is way off his game, Bert and Homer are showing their age, Abdelkader isnt devel...
The list of players having recieved a concussion this season hit 23 this morning, according to a Globe and Mail report. This is concerning for a lot of reasons, none larger than the names that have made the list. Sidney Crosby, Ryan Miller, Claude Giroux all have found themselves on the shelf for some time this season with the dreaded C word. Consider that 2 of the top ...
As we get closer to Sunday fans cannot seem to contain their excitement, expectations and fears. It is that time of the year again. The draft has concluded and each team's fanbase awaits news from the front about who their team is pursuing. Free agency will be upon us. For some teams, there is new found money to spend. Exits from the playoffs put strain on GMs to rethink ...

Stan the Man?

Let’s face it. The last two years as a Blackhawks fan have been extreme disappointments. With two first round exits in the playoffs, and the stress of barely sneaking in thanks to a Dallas loss; fans are at the point of wonder as to what direction this team is headed. All off season (prior to the suspension of play) rumors circulated of the acquisition of a superstar ...
