July 1, 2007

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
This is a very important day for the 2007-08 Philadelphia Flyers. A very, very important day. July 1st is the first day that unrestricted free agents are free to sign with the team of their choice. GM Paul Holmgren and crew will have gameplan ready to go, but it could easily be blown up within hours. Going into next season, the Flyers most important areas of need are a ...

Preds Uncertainty

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
Uncertainty This word surrounds the Nashville Predators and its' fans. This state has cost the team Paul Kariya and possibly other Free Agent's this NHL off season. This state surrounds the events in which the Predators ownership situation stands. You could also use this word to describe the upcoming season. It seems as though the entire NHL world and its' media has foc...

NHL and Cablevision Dispute???

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
I have called Cablevision twice inquiring about the Center Ice package. At first I was told they weren't taking orders for it yet, but they would automatically add it to my bill once it did. OK, not a problem Well, I noticed on the io.tv site that it's the only sports package that is not listed, so I called again today, and I was told there is some dispute between Cable...
I miss seeing the Leafs play the Wings. When the Leafs moved to the east, I knew that I would see less of them but thanks to this wonderful new schedule, I never get to see those two teams play. For me, they are right up there with Leafs/Habs or Leafs/Sens games. Always good regular season games and playoff games. I hope that with the new schedule for next season, ...
Round one on Monday night featured 10 fights, including the goaltenders squaring off, 6 ejections and 9 goals ... and, oh yeah, it also went to overtime! Round two happens live tonight on NHL Center Ice Online through Islanders TV! We're talking Islanders/Rangers, folks and, yes it is still the preseason but if Monday's contest is any indication, this one should be a...
Center Ice is available! And not a moment too soon, I was ready to just get it online and hook my laptop up to my TV to watch!
Finally a deal is done and Center ice is here... But there is just 1 problem.. Want NHL NETWORK? well you wont get it with center ice.. thats right.. you gotta fork another 5 bucks over a month for the sports tier of trash to just see nhl network. NHL Network however wont be available til later this month. The Cablevision Ripoff Continues..
Today I got a call from a CSR at Charter Communications corporate headquarters about the NHL Center Ice package. They basically told me the same thing I've been hearing for the past week and a half, the NHL wants too much. This is classic NHL (maybe just classic Bettman era, not sure.) in the premise that the league wants to make these huge deals, but doesn't think about...
Well folks just a week plus before the Devils finally open "The House that Marty Built" and let me tell you all, from the sound of things this will be a must see arena experience. Jeff Vanderbeek our newest and most pro-active owner ( since the good Doctor that is god bless his soul) went around the league and to ther places and found parts of other arenas new and old to i...

Random Thoughts

-Center Ice is the greatest invention in the history of mankind, even ahead of the Polio Vaccine and the internet. OK, maybe not as great as HDTV, but still pretty damned good. -Talk about interesting times to bust out. The Flyers Jeff Carter and Mike Richards are scheduled to be RFA's next summer and both are off to stellar starts. The team will have some cap dancing t...

2 Blogs for the price of 1

Posted Monday | Comments 0
Today I decided I was feeling energetic enough to write 2 blogs. With the Flames on a 7-game home stand and playing 6 games in 11 nights and playing pretty decent these days - I thought it was high time I found something that could keep my wife entertained each of those nights. The first thought was to leave it in the capable hands of my 15-month old son. If anyone ...

Questions on a Friday night

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Ok so As I sit here watching hockey and raiding my tissue box on a Friday night I found myself asking some questions and I don't necessarily know the answers to these so any help is greatly appreciated. Immediate Question Why Can't I watch the Flames game? I thought CI was supposed to show it all. well once again NHL network takes a game I can't see. If you watch a...
For those of you who don't frequent Ducks games, let me give you a little background on that question. Prior to last season, part of the renovation of the Ponda included expanding what is now called the Jack Daniels Ol' #7 Club on the Club level into a pretty respectible bar. But the greatest thing about it, was that it stays open for a couple hours after every game, and...
For comparisons to the rest of the league I took the highest scoring center on each team for a total pool of 30 rather than the top 30 highest scoring centers in the league.

Center(s) of attention

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
When [b]Paul Stastny[/b] went down with a broken forearm, I, like many hockey fans, thought the Avalanche were done. We're toast, build to next year, get a high draft pick and start from scratch. However, several centers have emerged to give Avs fans playoff hopes once again. First is [b]Wojtek Wolski[/b]. Since being moved to his new position, he has put new life in th...
One thing's for certain when it comes to assembling Team Canada for the upcoming Olympics. Steve Yzerman has his work cut out for him when it comes to making the cuts at the center position. Canada is so stacked at this position, that they could leave their top 8 centers at home and still have 4 of the best players remaining at that position. In fact, of the 25 forwards...
Beware to all the DirecTV people out there that are NHL fans. You will not see any games on Versus this year. This means that if your team plays a game on Versus, that game will not be shown on CenterIce. Versus has EXCLUSIVE broadcast rights for those games within the US and judging by the way they negotiate with satellite providers, they will not relinquish those righ...

NHL on TV in the US

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Wow, I know that Gary Bettman has been busy with the Coyotes mess, but no response from the NHL for over 2 weeks that Versus and DirecTV have split ways. This means a 25% DROP in viewership for all Versus NHL games. I wonder if the sponsors of those games are getting a discount? Here is what the Commish needs to do... 1. He needs to get Versus back on DirecTV or h...
If you creep around Flames forums and sites as much as I do, it's not rocket science to notice the majority of Flames fans think there's another major trade coming from the the bizzare mind of Darryl Sutter; if not "major", then at least a few minor tweaks. Let's look at where the Flames are at right now, and where they need to be... Right now, the Flames are sitting at...

Center of Attention

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
The summer of 2010 may not have seen much head-turning activity on the part of Sabres management, but they still managed to make plenty of moves to shake things up in the roster. Changes made to the defense have garnered the most interest, as certain veteran players were put on the market, while fresh faces were brought in to fill their roles. The combinations of defens...
Does Tim Connolly deserve a contract extension? I am pretty sure that there are few Sabres fans that believe Timmy is worth the $4,500,000 we are paying him for his 36 pts this season. So if he is not worth that much money how much is he worth? Using player stats collected before last nights games I compared other centers in the league that have within 7pts(20%) of Connoll...
Most have lauded the Sabres organization over the past few days for recognizing they weren't going to land Brad Richards and immediately snatching the next best playmaker on the open market in Ville Leino. In terms of ability the Sabres are upgrading their forward corps by adding a solid two way player with soft hands, great vision, and proven playoff performance. Howeve...
I'm aware that this may be a bit too early in discussing this but, for arguments sake let's talk about this subject anyway. Right now the leafs currently have 5 centers on their main roster with Bozak, Grabovski, Connolly, Lombardi and Boyce(RFA). Unless Something changes, such as Boyce not being resigned by the leafs and/or a trade of one of those 5, these players are ...

Everybody Just Relax

Okay so there seems to be a general panic in Leafs' Nation. From what I understand, this has been cause by the Leafs' inability to acquire a first line centreman. With the likes of Brad Richards and Steven Stamkos no longer available, the monkey working the big red panic button now has to work overtime. But what is Toronto didn't NEED a top line centreman? It now seems mor...

The center position is where you make your money, so you want to be sure and snag a superstar here. The position is also very deep, so you won't see a horrible drop off beyond the top ten. The other good news here, is that compared to other positions, the top centers are fairly predictable from year to year. With few exceptions, you can draft these guys with confidence ...
When the Jets left 15 years ago, few if any held out hope that the small, western-canadian city would ever get the chance to have an NHL franchise play in their city without it being an exhibition game. The city was told that they were not capable of supporting an NHL franchise. Now, lest we forget, the canadian dollar was worthless, the salaries were horrendous, and the...
So the Jets finished the year on a positive note with a 3-2 win over the Leafs. A great win to say the least as the Jets are in the thick of the battle for a playoff spot in the very tight Eastern Conference. Yes the Jets are currently holding a playoff berth in their hands, but many have stated that this is due to the fact that they played a sickening amount of games ...
Follow me on twitter: @flamesfan1981 For the past two decades the Calgary Flames franchise has attempted to fill their to center positions with low cost or washed up bandaid solutions that simply weren't the answer. To put this into better perspective, the Flames top 2 scoring Centerman since the 1996 season have been Robert Reichel (354 points in 425 games) and Craig ...

Front and Center

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
The Calgary Flames’ lack of a true #1 center has been the focus of many sports writers and fans for close to twenty years…and rightly so. The fact that the Flames have not managed to acquire this most basic piece of the puzzle, shows how completely inept the organization’s hockey operations department has been. It has been a disgrace. But at least current manageme...
First time for this, so be gentle A month away from the start of the season and I couldn't be more excited. A full season of games, an outdoor game every other weekend and 3am Olympic Hockey! Only one thing troubles me and it is the same thing every year. Drum roll please.... Extended drum roll.... ESPN's continued neglect of anything Hockey. From 35 second ga...
In this short article, I will discuss the top centerman with regards to two way play. Modern day NHL is much more focused on a two way game, rather than just offensive statistics. Advanced statistics have shown us the importance of players who can contribute at both ends of the ice. These stats are especially important for centerman, as they have so much responsibility ...

Islanders Committed to NY

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
The Islanders’ owners are “committed” to New York but are keeping their options open with regard to Barclays Center, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said during his news conference during the league’s All-Star Weekend. “They’re committed to the franchise, they’re committed to New York and the great fan base that has followed the Islanders,” Bettman said, r...
