30th
Sep. × ’11

By now the tale of Tim Thomas is well known to hockey fans. Overlooked, under appreciated, often undervalued and constitutionally incapable of giving up. Well, the Flint Michigan boy has made good. Real good. That may make this the most interesting season of his career for observers. After all, what does he have left to […]

29th
Sep. × ’11

This series will cover all thirty teams and go over the most important player, and player who’s performance most needs to improve to help the team succeed.   Out with the (not so) old, in with the new.

Sep. × ’11

This series will cover all thirty teams and go over the most important player, and player who’s performance most needs to improve to help the team succeed.   As talented as some of the Avalanche forwards are on the surface it is amazing that they finished both out of the playoffs and in the lottery.

Sep. × ’11

The Boston Bruins haven’t been shy about making trades in the Peter Chiarelli era. While many of them were the type of under the radar, no immediate impact trades like picking up AHL defensemen, or bringing in an aging veteran in exchange for some guys who were never going to be regulars, those aren’t the […]

Camp Competition

27th
Sep. × ’11

Given how little turnover was expected for the remaining roster spots after the signing of Pouliot and the acquisition of Joe Corvo I’m honestly surprised by how many of the AHL players are still in camp. Add in Chris Clark lingering around and you have a genuine mystery if all you do is look at […]

20th
Sep. × ’11

With Marc Savard down-checked for at least the season, the Bruins have an opportunity at third line center. Tyler Seguin who many believe to be a franchise quality player appears to be in the grooming process in this his second season. Not to be overlooked are returning veterans Rich Peverley who has looked top notch […]

Boston Bruins Training Camp Day 2

19th
Sep. × ’11

Day two opened with group B attacking the ice first. Lots of simulated game play. Rushes and drills almost the whole session. Peverley, Hamill, Knight shined brightest among the forwards in the first session. Sauve and Caron were definitely noticeable with good body position on the powerplay/penalty kill drills. Cheers at the beginning and breaks […]
