Per TSN, http://tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=211407&hubname= In order: Penalty Shots. Really, this just brings it in line with what all of Canada has been doing for a few years now, and I agree with it. Why should you not be allowed a penalty shot when you get tackled from behind, just because the other team's player didn't wait another two-thirds of a second? A br...
According to the Post-Dispatch, Andy Murray was said to already be playing with possible lines in his head. The lines went, "The Blues have a nice supply of forwards now, and the power play should be better. Murray is already tinkering with these line combinations, at least in his head: — Kariya, Tkachuk, Brad Boyes. — Martin Rucinsky, Weight, Jamal Mayers....
For part one of this 10 part series, I will be laying out my projected lines for the upcoming season complete with stats and player bios. This will serve as an introduction for parts 2-9 where I will break down each line and rate it. Enjoy!

Draw the Line

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
I know it maybe August, but my anticipation is growing for the coming season. I haven't seen many Predator blogs lately and I just wanted to know everyone's opinion on the Predators' lines for this upcoming season. 1. Sullivan-Arnott-Dumont Pluses-This line has a lot of chemistry as they displayed last season. Arnott and Dumont's size helps to open up space for Sulliv...

today after the skate lindy ruff held a brief presser (http://sabres.nhl.com/team/app/?service=page&page=NewsPage&articleid=337685). in this news conference he stared that he intends on keeping one of the most exciting lines for the sabres last year(RAV) together. this article also states that the rest of the forwards will look like this opening night.

Those who made it to practice this morning at Sharks Ice were greated with the return of Sandis Ozolinsh. Ozolinsh, who was released from his tryout with the Worchester Sharks late last week, was again wearing number 24 and was involved in every drill -- including being paired with Rivet on the point for PP practice with Thornton's unit (Rivet's normal partner, Matthew Ca...

Maple Leafs GM Cliff Fletcher recently announced that he is most likely sticking with his current roster until training camp starts and several pre-season games have been played. There are many questions with this 08/09 group of forwards, more than I can ever remember. For starters, there is no clear cut #1 Centre for the 1st time in over a decade. Mats Sundin is not on...

Dream come true

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
This NHL post-season must be a dream come true for Gary Bettman. His marketing team hasn't had to do any real work to sell these playoffs; they've sold themselves. Look at the excitement of the first round where we watched Boston against Montreal in an original six rivalry match, Pittsburgh against their hated rival Philadelphia, San Jose and archrival Anaheim in the first...
All is quiet in the world of the Devils right now. Fans and players alike have one eye on next season while the other looks back at the year that was with a disgruntled groan of frustration. There has been a distinctly empty stretch since the team cleaned out their lockers, not that this is unexpected. So while Devils fans watch their lesser sports and wait for some news, ...

What Should We Do Now?

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
I just got back from vacation to see the horrid Kotalik signing. Sather just shot the Rangers in the foot (more like heart) with this move. That should have been used to sign a center, not an underachiever. Now what should the dummy do? We need a center, but that doesn't get through his thick skull. I mean Kotalik has a lethal shot and will fit into the Torts system but...

Nine Fine Lines

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Several of the finest lines in the NHL were split up in the offseason, opening the door for some emerging combinations to take the stage for the 2009-10 season. Although most of these threesomes won't be matched up on a regular basis (due to positions or coaches not wanted to load up on one line), it's a great option for the coaches to assemble these lines when they're in...
As we continue to look back at the best and worst of the past decade, let's consider the top forward lines of the past 10 years. It's not often any more that a team will stick with consistent lines over a period of time, but there are a few notable entries to be found. For the most part, I tried to avoid great duos who were mixed with interchangeable parts, unless the pl...

Doing Lines With the Flyers

Posted Friday | Comments 0
No, this isn't one of those scandalous stories with pictures of the Flyers getting wild at parties. Any Flyers fan can tell you that it's been a frustrating year of high expectations and largely disappointing performance from the guys in Orange and Black. A roster full of talent with the scoring consistency of Sami Kapanen (sorry Sami, I love ya but...). One can...

What to do with 4 lines

Posted Monday | Comments 0
I have often asked myself, why cant a team ice 4 lines that can score? Well the obvious reason now would be 4 number 1 lines would be a crazy cap hit. The old school thought of 2 scoring lines 1 checking and 1 fighting/energy line scheme is gone (tell that to some gm's...sutter) so what can, or should teams be doing. Look at what the blackhawks did this last season, no ...
Tonight is the first of three pre-season match-ups for the "Battle of Ontario", and perhaps for the first time since the pre-lockout era, the games could live up to that title. Leafs fans will be happy to know that almost all of their new additions will make their way on the ice tonight. Only recently signed free agent forward Clarke MacArthur will sit out tonight's gam...
I really think the only thing I can contribute to a blog site such as this is some insight into the world of NHL bettors. Throughout the week, I'll post a quick blog if I see some nice Sportsbook lines or opportunities for a Pro-Line parlay. Please, feel free to leave your picks in the comments section and I'd love to know people's thoughts on the games I've chosen...

NHL 12, Expectations

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
With today being the release of EA's NHL 12, and amidst everyone's "top 5 hockey games" lists I'd thought I'd put my 2 cents in as well. For those of you not into video games, skip the next paragraph. The most underrated hockey video game of all time was NHL Stanley Cup for SNES. Everyone says that about whatever their favorite game was growing up, but that was mine. ...

Capitals Lines/ Semin

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
So the Capitals have put together a good solid team, more depth then I have ever seen before, however is it just me or does coach Bruce have no idea of how to put lines together? I don't understand why he is trying to change everything up, I mean the third line has better players on it then the second line. Semin, Johansson, and Eakin in the last game........ Why is Brouwe...

Flyers Line Up: My Version

Posted Friday | Comments 0
So now that the season is finally about to get underway, I’ve been giving a lot of thought to what the Flyers lines will or should look like. I see Line 1 with Hartnell, Giroux and Voracek because I think they will produce a lot of points in scoring but will balance it out well with some good fights and some quality time in the box. For Line 2 I personally would like t...
Exciting times ahead in Motown. The Wings were active on FA Day bringing in much needed top six depth while staying away from costly trades or ill-timed signings. I've seen a lot of fans chime in on line combinations lately, and without a doubt Mr. Babcock has plenty of options to play with. But, for the thrill of the guess, i'll post my idea of an ideal situation on op...
I'm writing a quick blog about my thoughts on the Wings lineup for the opener against Buffalo. And addressing why I think this is the best lineup to get points. Franzen/Datsyuk/Zetterberg Nyquist/Weiss/Alfredsson Abdelkader/Helm/Tatar Miller/Andersson/Eaves Ericsson/Kronwall Smith/Kindl DeKeyser/Quincy Lashoff Injury call ups: Emmerton, Jurco, Jarnkrok, Sh...
So Mike Babcock is going to coach Team Canada. That's a shocker. Seriously though, lets talk about something that hasn't been known for the past year. It isn't news folks. How about we mock up some lines for Team Canada, that's always fun. Here's what I got lining up on Forward: Towes/Crosby/Stamkos Perry/Giroux/Getzlaf Nash/Tavares/Staal Couture/Bergeron/...

The pre-season can't come quick enough. The Sharks lineup should look relatively the same as far as personnel go, but there could be some rotations in the make up of the lines. Here are my 2013/14 Sharks projected lines: [b]Forwards[/b] Marleau - Couture - Pavelski Wingels - Thornton - Burns Torres - Kennedy - Hertl Sheppard - Desjardins - Burish [...

Jagr-Henrique-Ryder Elias-Zajac-Brunner Clowe-Loktionov-Zubrus Barch-Bernier-Carter Zidlicky-Volchenkov Greene-Harrold Larsson-Salvador A few notes: -Although the top two lines will probably be shuffled around on the regular basis, I'd like to see Jagr and Henrique...
The Penguins came up with a huge non-conference win against St. Louis Saturday. The top reason for the convincing victory was some line shuffling by coach Mike Johnston. Pittsburgh needed a boost on offense after failing to win in four straight games despite stellar performances from goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury. They got the boost with the reformed lines. On line one, ...

I've got to start this off with the most important thing that happened tonight: I called that Hoffman goal. It may not be impressive since he is our leading goal scorer, but hey, if it was so obvious why didn't Cameron move him up from the fourth line earlier? Like maybe ...

30 Pipelines

Pronman has a new article ranking pipelines. Yesterday I had a link showing his rankings, but I can't find it now. Mine is different since I don't care if people have graduated to the NHL, I just collectively rank their last 5 drafts. I pretty much order the teams by the number of players under 20th highest ranked in their year, you'll likely want to move the teams that h...

Before I write this post, I will ask you to put these concepts in order of importance. - Flawless Officiating - Fun to play - Entertaining - Profitable Now you might ask: "why can't we have them all?": but it's known when you try to accomplish everything, you more usually end up accomplishing nothing: see Theresa May's approach to Brexit as an example.
