September 23rd, 2015 In Previews and Predictions, Top 10 Lists 0 comments

For a number of years the Pacific division was known as the toughest in hockey with the three-headed California monster. The San Jose Sharks, Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks are all still formidable opponents and now teams like the Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames are drastically improved as well. This division could give the Central a run...

September 23rd, 2015 In Editor's Choice, Pittsburgh Penguins, Previews and Predictions 0 comments

The Pitttsburgh Penguins are coming off quite a strange season. It was one that showcased the talent on the team as they started out with a record of 22-10 and had a power play converting at around 50%. However, the success would not last as the Penguins were plagued with injuries and the team faltered at the end of the season. The Penguins...

September 22nd, 2015 In Philadelphia Flyers, Previews and Predictions, Top Stories 0 comments

The Philadelphia Flyers are about ready to hit the ice after what was somewhat of roller-coaster ride in 2014-15. The team had players that failed to produce, a coach that was constantly throwing players under the bus, a first line that was one of the best in the league, and a goalie who is quickly emerging as a star. The biggest casualty of...

September 21st, 2015 In Ottawa Senators, Previews and Predictions, Top Stories 0 comments

The Ottawa Senators miracle run to the playoffs is nothing more than a thing of the past now. The illustrious appeal of McDonald's replaced by the anticipation for a new season; one marked with questions of youth, of management, and of coaching. The 2014-2015 season for the Ottawa Senators was, as a whole, another in a long line of mediocrity...

September 20th, 2015 In New York Rangers, Previews and Predictions, Top Stories 0 comments

The New York Rangers are coming off a stellar regular season in which they won the Presidents Trophy and made it to a seventh game in the Eastern Conference Finals, where they eventually fell to the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Rangers have moved out some bodies to stay under the salary cap and despite the changes made, they will still be expected...

After the most exciting offseason for the Red Wings in recent memory, fans are eagerly anticipating the 2015-2016 season. With the likes of Brad Richards and Mike Green donning the Winged Wheel for the first time, this season is met with much optimism, cautious as it may be.

September 19th, 2015 In New York Islanders, Previews and Predictions, Top Stories 0 comments

The 43rd and final season at The Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum was memorable. Their 47 wins and 101 points were the most since the 50 and 104 they had in their "Drive for Five" season of 1983-84.  The season ultimately ended in disappointment as they failed to show up in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals vs the Washington...

September 18th, 2015 In New Jersey Devils, Previews and Predictions, Top Stories 0 comments

A lot transpired during the 2014-15 for the New Jersey Devils, and most of it wasn't good as they finished with their worst record in over 20 seasons. Legendary goalie Martin Brodeur was gone from the franchise before the season even started, other players were traded away, suffered career-ending injuries or left the team for Europe and coach...

September 17th, 2015 In Previews and Predictions, San Jose Sharks 0 comments

When it comes to special teams, we have seen great playoff teams get away with having a bad power play (see the 2011 Stanley Cup winning Boston Bruins), but having a bad penalty kill is nearly impossible to get away with. Winning a Cup with a bad penalty kill is much more difficult than winning with a struggling power play. As for the San Jose...

September 17th, 2015 In Previews and Predictions, San Jose Sharks 0 comments

There is no question that San Jose's deadly top unit power play carried the team last season. The Sharks' penalty kill and five-on-five play was absolutely dreadful. While Team Teal managed to find themselves in second place in the division at the end of January, it never felt like the same high level Sharks teams of previous seasons. Their man...

September 17th, 2015 In Nashville Predators, Previews and Predictions, Top Stories 0 comments

It all came together for the Nashville Predators as the team returned to the postseason for the first time since the 2011-12 season. The Preds used a strong start, great defense and great goaltending to finish second in the Central Division after flirting with the President's Trophy for a majority of the season. The team flourished despite the...

September 16th, 2015 In Previews and Predictions, San Jose Sharks 0 comments

If you call yourself a die hard hockey fan, you probably have at least a moderate curiosity towards line combinations and defense pairs. The start of training camp is when coaches like to try new combinations and mix things up to see which players might mesh well together. For veteran teams like the Sharks, the mixing and matching of players on...
