Season Forecast: Detroit Red Wings

30th
Aug. × ’12

 This season, a new era begins. No Lidstrom. It has been a whole generation since this was last true. Even the limited player who was on the ice last year is better than anyone likely to replace him. Good News Datsyuk is still one of the best players in the NHL. Jimmy Howard has come […]

Season Forecast: Tampa Bay Lightning

30th
Aug. × ’12

The Bolts brought in a couple new faces this off season. After going from game seven of the Eastern Conference finals to finishing two spots and eight points out of the playoffs, it was needed. One of those additions has the potential for big impact, the rest are essentially maintaining the status quo. Good News […]

Season Forecast: Vancouver Canucks

29th
Aug. × ’12

The Canucks have been the whole show in a pretty pathetic division for a couple years. The division won’t be quite as bad this season and that could be either better or worse for them. As noted at the trade deadline, this team abandoned their identity then, and collapse came pretty close on the heels […]

Season Forecast: Winnipeg Jets

29th
Aug. × ’12

The Winnipeg Jets can look forward to improved defense this season. If for no other reason than health. With the exception of Mark Stuart all the defensemen played a number of games in the middles sixties or lower.  With Evander Kane as yet unsigned things at the other end of the ice could get dicey […]

Breakout Coming: Players On The Rise

27th
Aug. × ’12

This season will see lots of players in unfamiliar situations. Some are on new teams, some have had their teams overhauled, and others will be climbing up the depth chart. With all the movement, all the acquired experience, some players are due to rise and rise fast. Jiri Tlusty has spent two full seasons in […]

Season Forecast: Dallas Stars

26th
Aug. × ’12

On paper, the Dallas Stars may be the most improved team in the Pacific Division. That’s good for them because they needed to improve having finished seven points out of the playoffs. The bad is that hockey is played on ice and not paper, and some of their additions are likely to have less impact […]

Season Forecast: Carolina Hurricanes

25th
Aug. × ’12

Well, anyone wanting to know if the Caens were going to be active this off season got their answer early. After not engaging  in  their nearly annual salary dump at the trade deadline, they went out and got some pieces. Whatever else can be said about this years squad; they have the most effective two […]

Season Forecast: Calgary Flames

23rd
Aug. × ’12

This off-season, possibly the last in which the Flames fanbase can be reasonably certain Jarome Iginla will be coming to play in the fall, the Flames did not much to improve. They had an interesting draft, going with Mark Jankowski who some considered a reach for the first round.  They brought in Dennis Wideman for a […]
