Early Start

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
I know its August 6th, but lets look at October, because really its only 53 days away… How much does October mean to the Flames? Is the first game of the season really indicative of whether or not they will be raising Lord Stanley’s Mug nine months later? The answer simply is no. But, the first meaningful hockey game of the season is usually the most highly anticipa...

That Was Something...

Watching the Flames blow a lead like that should not be surprising for any true Flames fan. We watch year after year, game after game as the Flames jump out to early leads and either wind up blowing them, giving up last minute goals or barely hanging on. And there are some prime examples only six games into this very young season. The opener against Vancouver where the...

Is it October Yet?

Posted Thursday | Comments 4
Hey. HEY! Wake up! I SAID WAKE UP!! What the hell is going on these days? A whole lot of nothing, that’s what. We’d love to post about trades, free agent signings, jersey unveilings and the like, but it’s just not happening! Christ, even the NHL’s website’s most recent topic is how they’re investigating loophole contracts. You know times are tough when the N...

October Desktop Wallpaper

Posted Friday | Comments 0
This is our first of many Sabres monthly wallpapers that we will be releasing. One of our designers, Chris Downey, has created this one for October. The Sabres will play face Atlanta, Ottawa, Chicago, and New Jersey twice during the month of October. The Sabres have four sets of games on back-to back nights, and have three games in four nights three times. This is no...

Wrapping up October

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
The Ducks finished the month of October with a 3-2 shootout loss to the Boston Bruins (a game that I missed because I was busy terrorizing the few kids that came by), and finished with a record of 10 wins, 3 losses, and one shootout loss in 14 games, good for 21 points. And before November starts up I thought it would be fun to go through the highs and the lows of the 1st ...

Enjoy It

Let's take a look at a few stats to start your day feeling warm and fuzzy. Last year it wasn't until January 2nd that Cam Talbot had 6 wins. Edmonton's 4th win against the Western Conference last year came on March 16th. The first 7 games last year Edmonton's Defense had 6 points this year they have 13. And the most important stat of all the Oilers have gone from l...

MJ's Power Rankings (Oct 16)

Posted Wednesday | Comments 2
In my spare time, I pythoned up a sim, but part of that sim was creating a power ranking based on a self-invented hundred balance system (ie, 132 = 32% stronger than average; 75 = 25% weaker than average). This system is entirely statistically based with zero input, but I shall only explain why I "believe" the teams are where they are and what issues they might need to ad...

MJ's Power Rankings (Oct 23)

Posted Wednesday | Comments 2
Greetings! I have returned for my next instalment of power rankings. If you have read the first one, then you'll be familiar with what I am about to say: these power rankings are based entirely on statistical performances and they are churned out by a python code that examines every game in the last ten regular season weeks played (bleeding into the last year for now). N...
In the spirit of Hallowe'en and All Saints Day comes this week's power rankings, which I'll now be making on a monthly basis. I must repeat the disclaimer: the stats entirely determine the power ranking: I only try to rationalize what the stats are pointing out. 1. Boston Bruins 9-1-2 POWER 130 LW: 1 The Scary: Boston's dominance in both NFL and NH...
