With news breaking about the Chicago Blackhawks possibly making a critical error in filing qualifying offers to Restricted Free Agents Cam Barker, Kris Versteeg, Ben Eager, Colin Fraser, Aaron Johnson and Troy Brouwer, I can’t help but think Brian Burke is salivating at the thought of acquiring two players who would strenghten the Leafs' core in an instant. Those two ...
The ongoing issue pertaining to the Blackhawks and the delivery of RFA tenders has certainly piqued the interest of many, me included. However my interest doesn’t stem from my desire to necessarily add any of these RFA’s to my team; my interest is solely in the precedent that this decision will set. I can virtually assure you that this issue will rear its head again ei...
With the recent signings of Cam Barker and Kris Versteeg to nearly identical 3 year contracts worth more than $9 million each, it appears that the Hawks have dodged the proverbial bullet with regards to the NHLPA grievance over the Hawks handling of the RFA tender notices. After all, if the players had any desire to test the market and consider offers from other teams they...
By mid-afternoon yesterday, I had a savvy blog constructed for my inaugural post here on HockeyBuzz. It was all about the Hawks' cap plight, and included the pros and cons of the players whose names have been tossed around in all of the trade commotion. It was a well thought-out, snappy piece of writing. I even incorporated Bluto Blutarsky quotes. Solid gold. Then ...

The First 8

Posted Friday | Comments 0
As most of us know, the first 8 games last season played a large role in the eventual further dismantling of the roster by Brian Burke and the team missing the playoffs yet again. With that in mind I figured it would be fitting to take a glance at the first 8 this season, and throw out some predictions. We'll start by reviewing last seasons first 8. Game 1 vs Mtl. 4-...
Tonight, the Toronto Maple Leafs are set to host the Florida Panthers at the ACC, and are looking to erase a three game losing streak. While the team has lacked an ability to score after their first two games, Phil Kessel and Clarke MacArthur continue to be the team's offensive powers with little to no help around them. This has sparked line-up changes from head coach Ron...
For the third time this season (and this month) the New York Rangers will clash with the Toronto Maple Leafs. In their first two meetings (4-3 OT win Leafs / 2-1 win Rangers), each have conquered the other on the road. Toronto will look to avoid recent history repeating by earning the victory in this match-up at home. Toronto has scored just 7 goals in their last 5 gam...

NHL Trade Rumours

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
The Pittsburgh Penguins are looking for help on the wing (as always). They have recently inquired about Nikita Filatov, Kris Versteeg, and David Booth. The Columbus Blue Jackets are trying to bring in a puck moving defenceman from the Eastern Conference. Mike Commodore cleared waivers, and will soon hit re-entry waivers. The Boston Bruins are not shopping Marc Savard...
[b]LEAFS LOSE[/b] Francois Beachemin Kris Versteeg Tomas Kaberle Mikhail Stefanovich 7th Round conditional pick *It hurts to see Kaberle go, but it was inevitable. Weird to think now, that the longest serving Leafs currently on our roster are Kulemin and Grabovski. As for Kris Versteeg, it was never really working out. He fits a team like cup contender like Philad...

It's been a WHILE.

Between school and work and my novel and just blatant laziness, I've neglected my blog. But alas, I'm back. I figured coinciding my return with Michael Leighton's impending return would be a good PR move. Which means some things: --No more will you have to deal with sub-par hockey blogging. --I'm back. and I'm going to stay back. --and... probably most importantly...
In acquiring the negotiating rights to goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov, the Flyers addressed an area of concern that experts had called an organizational black hole since the heyday of Ron Hextall in the late 1980's. I disagree with black hole, however, the Flyers had not made goaltending a top priority since then. By trading for Bryzgalov's rights, and according to most repo...
Before I start, I don't claim to be an expert. I have my own opinions, and don't claim to know everything about hockey. If you find any inaccuracies or have any comments, please respectably leave them below or in my Inbox. Since I last saw my Flyers in May, a lot have transactions obviously have occurred. I was pissed off at the end of the season, and called it the ...
