Flyers Future

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
How nice is it to be a Flyers fan nowadays? At the All-Star break last season, the Flyers were sitting with 27 points and in the midst of a January where they accumulated four points - yep, four. The O&B were well on there way to the most futile season in the franchise's history. Oh, how times have changed. So far, 2007-2008 has seen our club return to - at th...

Chin Up: Better Days Ahead

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
After a long and suspenseful NHL Trade Deadline, Maple Leafs GM Cliff Fletcher felt the ripple effects from former GM, JFJ. With Bryan McCabe, Mats Sundin, Tomas Kaberle, Darcy Tucker and Pavel Kubina all refusing to waive their respective no-trade clause agreement, "Silver Fox" had to chip away the outer core. Hal Gill, Chad Kilger and Wade Belak are no longer Toronto ...

Epic Ending!

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Last night the San Jose Sharks layed everything out there and lost valiantly to the Dallas Stars in a 4OT game. Last night's game was intense, the Sharks showed true grit, determination, drive, and heart. I just first want to say thank you to the San Jose Sharks for a great season, a Pacific Division title, and a fun playoff run. The last 2 games the Sharks played we...
They were made the second and third highest paid centers in the league. They were rewarded greatly for having accomplished nothing, their salaries coming as major investments into the future of the franchise. They were to step in and become the leaders of the team and take the New York Rangers to the Stanley Cup. However, what was lost in all of the fanfare and glory of th...
Michael Cammalleri. Ten goals, eleven assists in 25 games and two game winning markers. The Flames are getting exactly what they asked for in this diminutive forward who has an eye for the net and a rougher side than most people think. He has a rifle of a shot and actually uses it, unlike the number 13 who plays for Les Habitants and used to dawn the Flaming C. He, along ...
An open letter to the future coach of the New Jersey Devils Dear Future Coach, First of all, welcome! You have just signed on for a job that requires seemingly no good reason to be fired. In fact, no Devils coach has lasted more than three years since Jacques Lemaire stepped down in 1998. Incidentally, if you happen to be Jacques Lemaire, welcome back—and please kn...
I wrote a blog a few days after the draft, and quite harshly got ridiculed for suggesting that the Leafs would not be after the top-end talent available during yesterday's NHL free agent frenzy. I suggested that Brian Burke, in all his common sense, would realize that now is not the time for the Leafs to sign big, while taking smaller, more rational steps would be the ...
Maybe saying the flames are the next redwings might be a bit of stretch but there roster is looking good for many years. This years line up should contend for the cup and like the wings there team starts with a solid defense. Is boumeester, phanuef and regher, compariable to lidstrom, rafalski and krownwall ? or maybe the question should can they develop into that trio? go...

Some Leafs CHL prospects

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Even with a few the Leafs most talented young players already with the big club there is still a fair amount of what looks like mid to high level talent coming up in the next few years. I'm going to touch on some of the top prospects not with the club at the moment and provide some stats. Now I acknowledge that I have limited or no knowledge about other teams prospect d...

Future Oilers at this years WJC

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
It is that time of the season when we take our tv remotes and change the channel from Tim Allens dreadful Santa Claus movies and switch on over to TSN for the World Junior U20 Hockey Championship, and from the perspective of an Oiler fan, it couldn't come at a better time. Edmonton, after raising the hopes of Oil nation with a five game road winning streak, have knocked o...
Ron Wilson, an alumnus from Providence College, was playing for Davos in the Swiss National League A in 1985 when pivotal Minnesota North Stars defenseman Craig Hartsburg was injured. Embroiled in a battle for a playoff spot, Minnesota were in tough to find a stabilizing replacement to hold down the North Stars backend whilst Hartsburg recovered. Ron Wilson, a standout col...
By Eric Marin Their chemistry produced one of the greatest goals in Devils history, and Patrik Elias hopes Jason Arnott’s second tour in New Jersey proves just as sweet. It was Elias who set up Arnott’s winning tally in double overtime of Game 6 to clinch the Stanley Cup versus Dallas in 2000. Together, they were two-thirds of the famed “A Line” with Petr...
Many people around hockeybuzz who talk about a rebuild don't look far enough into the future to project what a team will look like when a rebuild is complete and said team is actually a contender. A lot of people including our very oilers blogger Richard Cloutier often project the entire roster in 3 years time to be made up of all current oilers or prospects but if you loo...

Tambo-Do Nothing?

Many believe that Hemsky and Penner are at their highest value on Monday morning. Arguments can definitely be made to support this. But think of the value these players give the Oilers based on return perceived... Big guy, largest in the forward corps of the Oilers who can score 30 goals per year... who is out there Tambellini could get back and from who? Penner is t...

Life without Rafalski

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
Hi my name is Mike Rizzo I am a frequent visitor to Hockeybuzz.com and I have read a lot of these blogs all of them are fantastic by the way, and I just want to give my opinions on my favorite team the Detroit Red Wings. What better way to start my first blog then to tlk about a great career that just ended Brian Rafalski. Brian Rafalski officially retired on Wednesday a...
With more than 10 million in cap space will the Leafs do a mega offer to Stamkos in excess of 10 million? Burke did say he has no problem with term if the player is young. So look for 10 years at 10 million per year something TBay has no hope to match. They were paying 6 million for Giguere alone now he's gone and the Leafs desperately need a prolific goal scorer and...
Everyone has heard the jokes about the Islanders, their General Manager, their Owner, the players, building, and so on. The people cracking these jokes are on message boards, in bars, blogs, etc. They are the fans of the NHL, both of the Isles themselves and of other teams. The people not cracking jokes? The coaches and players of other NHL franchises. "But, if that...

A throw back to there 1960's Leaf jersey is going to be worn opening night! http://mapleleafs.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=589427 Check it out!
Rumours around Mtl is Getzlaf for Subban, and Plecks. Here are the reasons why I would not pull the trigger. We are not in contention nor are we anywhere near being in contention for a cup. So why would we go and acquire Getzlaf? Getz would only be helping us now, but we dont need help now, in fact we need to tank now. If we were to acquire such a big name/big center, ...
First off, I do not beleive montreal needs to draft a Defencemen this upcoming draft, so I am writing this blog as if they will be drafting one of the top 4 offencive prospects that could go in the top 5 in Pittsburgh this June. 1. Nail Yakupov (5'11, 189lbs) - W - Sarnia Sting - 37GP/30G/35A/65PTS/26PIM 2. Mikhail Grigorenko (6'3, 200lbs) - C - Quebec Remparts - 57GP/...

Oilers, Staying The Course!

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
As the chatter goes on regarding free agency and making big trades the Oilers stay the course and build primarily through the draft adding select pieces to bridge between what they are and what they will become. Naturally everyone wants to be a Cup contender every year but quite frankly that isn't realistic. Managing contracts and payrolls is critical these days if you w...
Jay Feaster has come under heavy scrutiny since taking over as “acting” general manager of the Calgary Flames on December 28th 2010, however questions of his direction and lack of stated strategy have fans feeling confused and unsure of where the Flames are headed. The major question then is “Are things getting better or worse for the Calgary Flames hockey club?”. ...
In many ways you could say that the future is already here. When Erik Karlsson picked up his first Norris Trophy last season it has gone no less than one year after Lidstrom settled with his last and seventh, one shy of Bobby Orr's record eight. As one living in Sweden I know the Swedish hockey fraternity were all in smiles. Is there a new era of domination for (Swedish) d...
While we're in Development camp mode, I wanted to dive a little deeper and look at five Wing prospects that have great potential to either play in Detroit or Grand Rapids this season. The future is bright for the Wings and I wouldn't be surprised if the Griffins went for a repeat next year. With Nyquist, Tatar, Andersson and DeKeyser likely making the jump to full ti...
first off. Our captaincy. i think it is really down to two players. Ott and Vanek. they are both one of the oldest on the team. thye have experience and are both leaders. Now it all boils down to if Vanek is staying or not. if he leaves so be it, Ott gets the C, if not then its going to be a tough choice. I personally think Regier feels he has screwed up with the huge...

On the Edge of the Sabre

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
Although this season was somewhat predictable when it comes to how the Sabres would finish, last nights win against the Maple Leafs was a step moving forwards. The Sabres finally started playing with life and emotion. Ted Nolan has really changed the culture here, regardless of his record as Head Coach. He promised back at his first press conference that the culture in Buf...
The Bruins have been virtually non-existent during this off-season. We have signed a bunch of useless depth players who will hopefully never have to play a minute during the season. These signings have left us with around 3m left in cap space. This is barely enough to sign either of the top 2 priority's , Krug and Smith. The worst part about that is if you can only sign on...
This is the first time in my life that the Leafs haven't been of general interest and importance in the city of Toronto. I have suffered through the teams of the 80's, the short lived glory days of Gilmour and friends in the early 90's, the Sundin wingerless era of mediocrity (with the exception of Gary Roberts, the toughest man in the world), the JFJ days, and the post lo...

CBJ- Future Top Defensive Pairs

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
With Columbus recently acquiring Seth Jones from the Nashville Predators, I look around the league at future top pairings in the league to see who could be really good and bad. These are also bold predictions as players' potentials are getting better and better, and there are some really good players left off as this is a look ahead. If you don't like what you see, ple...
