Doughty Overrated?

Posted Wednesday | Comments 6
In my watching of the 2008 World Junior Hockey Championship there has been constant talk of the top two guys for the 2008 Entry Draft in Ottawa. The consensus seems to be that Canadian Steven Stamkos will go #1 and Drew Doughty, a Canadian defender, will go #2. I was quite surprised by this aspect because of the games I have seen Doughty play I have been surprisingly und...

Avs Struggles Part 1

Posted Thursday | Comments 1
[b]A belated Happy New Year to everyone! Ok, the Avs have now lost 4 in a row. That being said, December was a great month for us, despite the injuries to key players. It's fairly obvious what the biggest struggle is for the Avs right now. No I'm not referring to goaltending at the moment, or our defense...it is our power play. Last year's PP was amazing, 21.1% with 79 ...

Monday: The BIG Day

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
This Monday at 8PM we will be able to witness the lottery draft for the first overall pick in what is one of the deepest drafts in years. Right now, although it hasn't been solidified as definite, the Islanders sit in what appears to be the fifth worst spot, prompting the possibility of getting that 1st overall pick. Sure, many probably figure the odds are not on our si...
As I look back on this season, 2009/2010 can't be called anything but a success. I can't help but look at the Kings and think about the years of prosperity that are on the horizon for this franchise. Look around the NHL at a team like Vancouver (my hometown team) and I see a 2-3 year window for a winning season before the core gets too old. Both the Sedin duo and Luongo...
Zeus, a warrior, what more needs to be said? What a player. This is probably going to be a very one sided review as I have a lot of respect and admiration for what Michal brings to the Kings both on and off the ice. I think that we can attribute the success of the Kings to the veterans in the room. They have taught the younger guys what it takes to win. I look at O'Do...

Getting Started...

Hey Y'All... So this is my first blog ever in general so let's see if I can get off to a good start (besides for my easy to see grammatical mistakes) Thought from last night... Leafs and Flames Boring boring boring game.... to me there was not a good pace in that game and until the last minute if you were a leafs fan u must of been bored like me (thank god for ...
Based on our team now, here would be our opening lines: Neal-Crosby-Dupuis Kunitz-Malkin-Sullivan Cooke-Staal-Kennedy Adams-Letestu-Asham Letang-Oprik Martin-Michalek Niskanen-Lovejoy Fleury Johnson The lines might be different but these are in essence our guys heading in. There are a few things that strike me when i look at our team. 1. Our forwards a...

So with all the free time ive had on my hands at work with business slowing down /summer coming to an end im usually left with countless hours to surf the net. Unfortunatley all of the good sites are blocked ( Youtube, Yahoo, Hotmail etc) which means im left looking up meaningless stats and reading NHL blogs for the majority of my 8 hour shift. I might as well put all of t...
4 days after training camps start and Drew Doughty has already had $100,000 taken off his offer from the LA Kings setting it currently at an impressive 6.7 million USD. Many people are wondering why Doughty hasnt signed yet? LA has a talented squad who are going to be legitimate contenders this year. Lombardi has come out and said that he will not move Doughty as he "wi...

A Much to Do About Nothing

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
To Whom It May Concern, This is a forewarning to all GMs, owners, and fans who enter the perils of "Player Holdouts". Prepare yourself for a giant letdown. History dictates the player will always win. Not the team or it's fans, the player and his agent always win. Why does this hold true? The player has the least to lose. He may not have a salary ...
The Flyers have improved to 2-1-1 in their first four games of the post season. As I've reported in my previous blog, the Flyers would re-evaluate on Saturday and they did just that. At 3:01 PM the Flyers have cut 17 Players. Goalie Johan Backlund was a notable name. Backlund has struggled since his surgery and hasn't been the same when the Flyers signed him as "The g...
The first ten days of hockey have wrapped up and I couldn’t be happier with what I’ve seen from the Philadelphia Flyers. As of Saturday the Flyers are 3-0-1. Seven points out of eight is a good start for a team that is just gelling together. The Flyers faced the Western Conference champions, the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday and played a pretty solid game. The only...
Ben Lovejoy is a likeable guy. That almost sounds like I am trying for a joke...but I'm not. Last night Lovejoy went awkwardly into the boards during a collision with a Sharks player and immediately you could tell something was wrong. The grimace on his face...the reaction of the trainer on the bench while feeling Lovejoy's wrist...the quick exit he made to the t...
I know most people are picking the Kings to upset Vancouver in the first round. It's a popular pick based off of the fact that Jonathan Quick is a Vezina candidate and single-handedly drove the Kings to the playoffs. But is it realistic? Vancouver IS the President's Trophy winners (two years in a row mind), earning it in the last game of the season with a convincing win in...

[b]The Ides of March[/b] [b][i]Leafs Lose Again, et tu LA?[/i][/b] I apologize for not working on this last night after the game, but it has almost become unbearable to stay up later in the evening, having to watch both the Leafs and defending champion Kings find ways to lose. Although I am not as much concerned about the Kings, however I am beginning to worry abo...
[b]March 27[/b] It has been a while. There really has not been much to talk about, except watching the Toronto Maple Leafs revert to a team who plays with little clue of how to play the game of hockey. The team refuses to keep things simple. They have also tuned coach Randy Carlyle out completely. It has also become very evident that the seven year extension for pse...
Been a while, been replying mostly to posts from our Kings beat blogger Jason Lewis...what a great job he has done having taken over for the at times overbearing yet passionate Matthew Barry. Thanks for all of your work this season! Some first period thoughts...lousy opening 20 for the Kings. Looking to finish the series on home ice in front of thousands of die hards I ...
It is no secret that having an elite level defenseman has endless benefits. Modern day hockey involves a 5 player attack more than ever before. Having a smart, skilled player who can jump into the rush opens up a lot more options for the team. The position has evolved significantly, and offensive D-men are much more prevalent. However, in this article we will be focusi...

Top Players

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
Top Current NHL Players (My opinion) 1 Ovechkin 2 McDavid 3 Doughty 4/5 Seguin 4/5 Kopitar 6 Tavares
Tavares to Leafs? Panarin to Kings? Figured it was about time to start speaking up for a change. First, congrats to the Washington Capitals on winning their first ever Stanley Cup title. It sure seemed bleak when it came down to the Caps vs. Vegas in the end; rooting for a perennial playoff choker to put an end to Mr. Bettman’s disgusting Vegas Cinderella story, b...
