Power forwards...huge, hulking, “whittle-guy” killers that can skate...a goalie’s worst nightmare...and supposedly, the ghost of Christmas past. The new rules adopted my “My NHL” practically sent them to their graves. At the very least, the new rules assured a long, penalty-plagued transition. Many of the typical power forwards became a liability to their team...
Here's a list of my top picks for the Wild to pursue this offseason. Forwards: [b]1) Jason Blake[/b] A few things stand out in my mind when I look at Jason Blake. First, obviously, that he was a 40 goal scorer last season with the Islanders and led them in points with 69, but also that he played at a +1 for them over all 82 games. Blake is a ferocious forechecke...
In the midst of all the Dustin Penner drama, I started thinking to myself why would a well respected veteran general manager like Kevin Lowe go through so much trouble to bring over the 25 year-old Manitoba native to Edmonton. Penner, who appeared in all 82 games with the Anaheim Ducks last season, finished with 29 goals and 16 assists in his first full NHL season and play...
It goes without saying that with no scoring, you likely won't win many games. Coming into last year's campaign, the Blue Jackets and their fans believed en groupe that they boasted a group of forwards that could rival any in the West. On paper, Rick Nash, Sergei Fedorov, David Vyborny, Anson Carter, Fredrik Modin and Nikolai Zherdev looked like an offense that could outsco...
We are at mid-season and the team thus far has performed well. The expectations for this team were through the roof at the start of the season, picked by most sports publications to win the cup. If you compare the performance up to this point with the early predictions for the team, you will see they are a little below where they planned to be. However the team continues t...
Were nearing the beginning of the season, still no word on sundin, so since hes not on the roster as of now, I won't use him. These are just my thoughts on the way the lines should be. Line 1- Blake-Antropov-Hagman I like this combination because it gives blake a chance to get his scoring touch back, it also gives hagman a chance ...
1/20/10 Hello Sabre Nation, this is a guide for our trade deadline possibilities. I will do this blog for potential forwards only. Many are very similar, but here are some minor descriptions of their game. Thanks for viewing and I hope you enjoy. It is more than likely the Buffalo Sabres will look to improve their roster at the trade deadline on March 3rd or bef...
Ok...keeper league...everybody has 1 forward keeper...rank these players (projected top 20 picks)...GO! Pavel Datsyuk Anze Kopitar John Tavares Jeff Carter Henrik Zetterberg Brad Richards Marian Gaborik Bobby Ryan Mike Richards Jonathan Toews Derek Roy Joe Thornton Ilya Kovalchuk Patrick Marleau Loui Eriksson Jarome Iginla Rick Nash Matt Duchene Dany H...
The 2014 Olympics in Sochi will be a new turning point for Canadian professional hockey. A changing of the guards if you will. The team which represented Canada in Vancouver, while praised as one of the best Canadian national teams ever brought together for one event, was old. The captain of that team, Scott Niedermeyer, is gone, and other player's who played serious minut...
As I discussed in my prior blog, the picture for the Blues defensive corps for 2014-15 is fairly clear with Cole, Prosser and Butler fighting to sort out the scraps unless there are injuries or trades. The forward picture is a lot more crowded and a lot less clear with likely only fourteen roster spots available. Some might argue there are nineteen NHL capable or soon to...
It’s been a wild weekend for the Buffalo Sabres franchise and fans, and things don’t look to be settling down anytime soon. All of these additions to the team have lead to many people creating starting lineups. Of course, these are just speculations, as it’s likely head coach Dan Bylsma will try out new lineups at training camp later in the summer. But with all of...
Ok.....preseason is almost here....what are the Leafs doing? What does the team look like now....and moving forward...Staying focused on reality....which means realizing they are not in the Cup contention phase for two more years.....i am not saying they can't win it this year...but it would be an early surprise after just making the playoffs by a point. So what do the...
