Sabres and Saturdays

Posted Monday | Comments 0
So here we are with another Saturday loss. (Don't worry, I'm not panicking over a 3-2 loss anytime soon...) One thing I've noticed over the season was the lack of real grit or passion when playing on Saturdays. I went back through all of the games and the Sabres were a disappointing 10-13-3 when playing on Saturdays (including the loss to NYI) I'm not a superstitious...

NHL Getting No Respect

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
I was sitting reading that paper in my stained, moldy silk robe sipping my Starbucks latte, shoving a spoon full of chocolate rice krispses down my throat as I perused the Sports section of my local newspaper. All this UFA/RFA excitement of yesterday had me itching to see what was what. All this speculation on the blogs and HFboards, I needed some nitty gritty cold hard f...
So Derek Roy's arbitration hearing is set for tomorrow, July 27th. So far this summer, there hasn't been much positive PR coming from HSBC Arena. Locking up Vanek, although a major step, might be the only "positive" thus far. After the initial heartbreak of bad breakups with #48 and #23, I have rebounded to the point of somewhat buying into the "we're going to be allrigh...
Well almost a week since the Gods brought us NHL08, and I still play it way too much. I will be getting the online league going very shortly-it's already just about set to roll. I can't say enough good things about this game, I really feel like I am a shill for the site sponsor, but it's true. I have played maybe two hours of other games since the package arrived with Eric...

Hawks In Town for V-Day Date

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
[b]The high octane Chicago Blackhawks[/b] come calling tonight to the Sommet Center fresh off a 7-2 thrashing of the Bluejackets last night. One can only hope that they used up their allotment last night. Led by a core of youngsters that will make this team dangerous for years to come the Blackhawks have fallen out of contention and appear to be destined to be a .500 ho...
Here's a quick bit of fluff, as I attempt to pick my choices for major NHL award winners. Hart Trophy Finalists: Jarome Iginla, Calgary; Alexander Ovechkin, Washington; Daniel Alfredsson, Ottawa. My Pick: Ovechkin. Ovechkin is the most exciting player in the game and he is the Capitals. Not only is he supremely talented, but he plays the game with a passion an...
The Canadian Press recently reported that NBC is using the ratings for the current Sunday hockey broadcasts to determine if they wish to continue regular hockey coverage in the future. Wonder what the ratings were yesterday? Apparently, NBC has forgotten that they used to cover the Daytona 500. Of course, in 2005 when the race left NBC and went elsewhere the ratings i...
As if it wasn't a big enough concern that the team I have all but worshiped for my whole life has missed the playoffs for 3 consecutive years, now I find myself worrying about the whole management situation that is an on-going mess in Toronto. It is very troublesome that with an exceptionally crucial draft approaching, current interim GM Fletcher is apparently focussed ...
I'll be plopped in front of TSN on Tuesday for the excitement, but if the Calgary Flames manage to make a big splash, it'll just be a bonus. Although the departure of Rhett Warrener, Marcus Nilson and Anders Eriksson cleared up a bit of cap space, the re-signings of Daymond Langkow, Craig Conroy, Curtis McElhinney and Eric Nystrom make huge grabs on the UFA market very unl...
As much as I scoffed at the money thrown at players like Cristobal Huet, Jeff Finger, Brian Campbell, Wade Redden and Mike Commodore, I was also very disheartened in the relative quiet on the Flames' front on July 1. Though today's signings of Jim Vandermeer and Curtis Glencross make the situation a little better, their inability to find a viable 2nd line still makes the p...
I am not sure what to make of things. I was excited at the coming of UFA time but the lack of anything going on has left me a little bummed out. I read this comment from Doug Wilson “We’re a better team now than we were at the beginning of last season.” Ok excellent...but how is San Jose a better team now than it was last year at this time? Bernier is not here...

Glory Days

There's a reason that of the three Devils Stanley Cups, 1995 is by far my favorite. No, it's not because I was 10 years old and it somehow represents a happier time in my life. And no, it's not even for the better reason that it was the first one and therefore any one of those players will tell you it's the Cup that meant the most to them. It's because of all three Cups, 1...
So, I lucked my way into a ticket because my sister in law couldn't go and my mother in law invited me, bless her heart! So, I will first admit that this was my first Flyers game at the Spectrum and sadly I imagine it will be my last. But, it was an amazing experience. My mother in law has a good friend who has been a season ticket holder since 1969 and apparently has ...
I always enjoy playing out big Sabres games just before they take place on my PS2...sort of "predicting" if you will. I set the rosters up so that they match the Game Day rosters, and I go at it. Historically, I'd say I pick the winning team about 75% of the time whenever I do this, so it's pretty accurate. In fact, I've done playoff games in the past in which I get the...
I'm going to play off of the infamous "Ek Factors" for this one, and give you the "Mill Factors" for this game. BTW, before I get started, Ek and his family remains in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Get well soon Ek!

Darryl Sutter has never been much into the hype of Trade Day. He's known for making all his moves in the post-season and doing a fairly good job of it. On trade deadline days, his past has seen him maybe pick up a depth defenseman, a depth forward, and possibly a back-up goal-tender. He’s said before that the available players are not worth the price teams have to pay. T...
Burke said he would move Andropov he did. He said if he couldn't sign Moore he would trade him. Sundin, McCabe, Belak, Kilger, Moore, Andropov, Tucker, Raycroft, Clemmenson, Wellwood are all gone love them or hate them that team is gone. The above represents 24 plus million dollars in salary. He said he wanted to get a few more draft picks because some had been trad...
Tonight the heavily anticipated NHL entry draft will be held with the Islanders set to make their first overall pick. The three top candidates are well-known by now: John Tavares, Victor Hedman, and Matt Duchene. The order in which they should be listed has been debated over the past several weeks with them shifting over and over again. My personal take is that if we dr...

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 Birthday for a Great One

Ever wonder why this day has such importance in the hockey world. Head on over to the Sports Roundup for a look into why it has become such a red letter day in sports history. http://bit.ly/i1OT5J
As the season wraps down for these two clubs both are fairly secure in their hopes for a playoff berth. Both the Coyotes and Kings are tied for 5th/6th in the West with 96 points apiece. A win for the Coyotes will seal their playoff dreams and guarantee them a spot. This will be a big game for the Desert Dogs as they will be facing a beaten up LA squad missing their supers...
The Pens signed RW Steve Sullivan today to a 1 year 1.5 million dollar contract. The Pens also signed Forward Colin Macdonald to a 1 year 550K contract. The Pens also Re-signed Foward Tyler Kennedy. To a 2 year 2 million dollar contract. The Pens don't have that much money left so I think they won't make any more deals for a while.

After dropping a 2-1 decision to the Devils the Winnipeg Jets brass has to look at their team and decide whether or not they are going to address the issues that currently plague this line up. Namely offense and effort. For the entire game this team looked absolutely useless offensively. he Jets lone goal was scored by Andrew Ladd on a shot that martin Brodeur is goin...
Before we get started here, I'd like to thank everyone who read, commented and participated in the interactive, live blog here at TB HB and at HockeyBuzz. It was a lot of fun chatting with you guys as the deals of the day unfolded. Despite being a rather quiet deadline day overall, the Lightning were really busy. Yzerman made some key deals that should benefit this team...

FLAMES... The Flames announced that they signed right wing Tim Jackman to a two-year, $1.25 million deal. CANUCKS-SABRES swap... Cody Hodgson is sent to Buffalo for Zack Kassian. This is certainly one of the biggest two deals of the day. Kassian has the potential to be a top power forward, while Hodgson is more advanced at this stage. He will help the Sabres, who we...

Draft day for the Leafs

Posted Sunday | Comments 1
What excitement! At least from my perspective, this was a successful draft day for the Leafs. Not because of the picks, but because no stupid moves were made in order to "upgrade" the team. Being able to hear Burke actually draft [b]Morgan Reilly[/b] was a relief. I was worried the pick may be traded before hand, as Burke likes to make bold and drastic moves like that....
I don't know Evander Kane. I don't pretend to. I have never met the man. That of course has not kept me from forming an opinion of the young forward during his brief stint as a member of the Winnipeg Jets. This opinion I have formed has come from watching him play a full season on the ice, as well as witnessing his antics on Twitter and hearing rumours (some unfounded,...
Philadelphia Flyers are throwing Braydon Coburns name in trade talks teams that are believed interested are Edmonton Oilers, Detroit Red Wings, Vancouver Canucks and several more. The asking price is a young forward who can replace Danny Briere or a prospect with a pick.

Jay Feaster said today that Mike Cammalleri is available for trade Feaster said he still hasn't received any offers on Cammalleri but expects it to pick up closer to the Draft. A list of teams believed to be interested are Los angles, Vancouver , Detroit, Nashville, Toronto and Carolina
I'm going to give you my thoughts on how I felt Montreal did in this years draft. I really felt Montreal had a strong draft I felt they really hit it home in the second round they had three second round picks. Another thing Montreal drafted big guys on the wing something they have lacked for years, and I had to mention them potentially getting the steal of the draft by dra...

Gameday: Sharks vs Canucks

[b][i]Update: Stuart will be sitting out tonight per David Pollak.[/i][/b] The Sharks kick off the 2013/14 season tonight at home against the Vancouver Canucks. The two Pacific Division rivals met twice in the pre-season with the Sharks taking the first game 3-2 and the second 5-0, but as we all know, the pre-season means nothing. Last season the Sharks were a perfec...
Last night the Winnipeg Jets lost 6-3 at home to the Columbus Blue Jackets. Watching the game it was pretty clear that there is little to no direction as to where this team is or where it's going. They were getting beat in every aspect in the game, whether it be a 1 on1 battle on the wall or just a race to open space and was really difficult to watch. The Jets are know 10...

Entering season #4- Jets 2.0

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
This will be the 4th season for the Jets 2.0 and the only roster moves made since the draft and free agency were letting Olli Jokinen walk and signing Mathieu Perreault. The Perreault signing IMO was a great move, but not enough of a significant impact to change their fortunes for the upcoming season. When you play in a division with Chicago, St. Louis, Dallas, Minnesota, ...
I would like to preface this writing by stating I am by no means the best writer in the world. Having said that, here we go. June 26, 2015. A day that will certainly be remarked as a memorable day for hockey history. The NHL got to see the selection of future franchise players who will undoubtedly change the face of their respective franchises. I would like to genuinely...
This is the first time in my life that the Leafs haven't been of general interest and importance in the city of Toronto. I have suffered through the teams of the 80's, the short lived glory days of Gilmour and friends in the early 90's, the Sundin wingerless era of mediocrity (with the exception of Gary Roberts, the toughest man in the world), the JFJ days, and the post lo...
The New York Rangers owned six draft picks in the 2016 Draft, they did not have a pick on the first night of round one. On day two the Rangers lucked out big time and when their pick came up at 81 in the third round they wasted no time selecting Defenseman Sean Day from the OHL Mississauga Steelheads. Day,18 is a two way defender who possesses elite talent but has struggle...
