Five rungs left until the top. The distance can be climbed but there are only 13 chances left to do so. Below, the hordes of enemies are rushing up, the leader just one rung below. Its crunch time. Will the top be reached? It has been quite a turnaround. Just a few weeks ago, the New York Rangers were substantially lower in the NHL food chain and barely clinging to play...
Well we did not break it but almost, the buzzer in Chicago runs off a compressor that needs time to regenerate on our 7th goal the buzzer was audibly softer than the others. What a game, we passed the puck as good as any team I have ever seen, tape to tape over and over, I’ll post the link for the highlights as although Ilya Bryzgalov got shelled he actually did not play...
Now that the initial free agent frenzy is over, I'd like to review some contracts that have been handed out in order to assess the value of 3.5 to 4.5 million dollars on the open market. Or more importantly, to see how NHL franchises value that dollar range differently. Below are a list of forwards who have signed AFTER July 1st 2011 to contracts that will have an annual...

Jets/Blackhawks Gameday

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
So there will be a few things I will be looking for in tonight's matchup against the Blackhawks. - Does the team show more energy than they had in their season opener ? - Will any of the lines show any chemistry at all, and if not can head coach Claude Noel do enough mixing and matching to get anyone going ? - How well will Mark Scheifele deal with being in a h...

Blackhawks down Jets 4-3

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Okay.........so I was off on the score by one goal.........so sue me. All-in-all the game was pretty much what I expected it to be. The Jets were pretty much dominated throughout the game and the score really doesn't reflect that. The Jets have a really bad habit of giving the puck up in the worst possible areas of the ice. They remind me way to much of what Ales Hem...
Despite reports to the contrary Malkin and Crosby will not be in the line up tonight when the Jets host the Pens. Why would they be ? There is absolutely nobody on this planet right now that thinks the Jets will beat the Pens regardless of whether or not the two superstars are in the line up. If you don't need them to win, why not give them another day off. Eve...

Jets get first win of year

Posted Monday | Comments 0
So it appears my prediction of a Penguins laugher was somewhat off. You really can't blame me for thinking it would be a cakewalk for the Pens after what the Jets had shown over the course of their first three games. I don't really know if this was the Jets team we can expect to see throughout the rest of the season or if it was just an anomaly. Here are some of the...
So with a very important stretch of games ahead for the Jets, it will be interesting to see what GM Kevin Cheveldayoff does with this team nearing the deadline if they are out of reach of the playoffs. Lets look at a few of the factors that currently haunt this team and how they might be rectified. Defense - Believe it or not, the Jets roster has some pretty good ta...
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...

Penguins Trade Deadline

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
The longest week of many of our lives is upon us: the NHL trade deadline week. I've been checking twitter constantly, this site among many others, feverishly waiting for the first deal to go down. I think many of us will be disappointed, particularly with the Penguins at the deadline. The Penguins' ability to make a deal at the deadline has been crippled as a result...

Buffalo Sabres and the #2 pick

Posted Wednesday | Comments 1
As a die hard Sabres fan I was disappointed that they lost the 1st over all pick to the Florida Panthers after having the worse record in the league. My conspiracy therorist beliefs smelled rotten fish in Denmark when the news was announced by the N.H.L. The bright spots being Ryan Miller played exceptionally well on a poor team, we got some good talent and picks through t...
[b]Follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/DailyNHLGrind[/b] The Avalanche has hit rock bottom. After blowing a late lead last night in Calgary, Colorado had nothing going for them tonight. The Jets stormed out to score early an often en route to a 6-2 victory over the Avs. Bryan Little led the way with a hat-trick and they also received goals from Chris Thorburn, And...
With the trade deadline inching closer and closer, it's that time of year for us hockey fans to think up those wild trade scenarios that just might make sense. The real key to these proposals it to try to justify it from all sides to make it almost believable. Does it fit the teams needs? Does it work with the cap? Is it a fair value of talent? etc. What i came up with:...

Isles edge Rangers 4-2

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
It was the type of atmosphere, that the Isles had in the first and second rounds of the playoffs last year, and they did not let down their fans. The Isles advanced to 4-0-1 in in their last 5 games and starting to play like a playoff team. In the 5 game point streak the Isles went from 6-10-4 to 10-10-5 making their presence felt in the league again. The day started o...
