New Feature: One Question

5th
Oct. × ’13

This irregular feature will run when I get bored. It will ask one scintillating question about each NHL team.   Anaheim Ducks: Can this team take advantage of its abundance of youth to compliment its savvy and skilled veteran core? Boston Bruins: Is there a single hockey observer anywhere who doesn’t think the team is […]

Atlantic Division Predictions

4th
Oct. × ’13

With so few of the division’s teams actually on the Atlantic, or even within an hour or two’s flight of the ocean, the name is a mystery. So is the number of teams that will see the second season. The top two are a gimmie, the next four are just a hairs breadth apart.  With […]

The First Five Games: Toronto Maple Leafs

23rd
Sep. × ’13

Better still, they didn’t even back in on a last game overtime loss, they snagged the five spot in the conference, in regulation or overtime wins they were tied for second in the east. Which […]

The First Five Games: Anahiem Ducks

13th
Aug. × ’13

The Anahiem Ducks had an enormous regular season. Then in the playoffs they fell to the weaker Detroit Red Wings when they couldn’t push the dagger into finish the series and advance. Since then they have traded away Olympian, and consistent 30 goal man Bobby Ryan. In exchange they got even younger adding Jakob Silfverberg, […]

What We Know: Atlantic Division

8th
Aug. × ’13

Realignment has stirred the pot and the results in this division are curious at best. The big idea is clearly to draw fans into the arenas of all of the NHL’s second and third tier teams. In this case however, six of the teams are sorta close to each other, and the other two are […]

 This is a feature that will run about every two weeks (during the regular season)with improbable stats and situations in the National Hockey League.

10th
Jul. × ’13

The rumor mill insists that Peter Chiarelli is trying to move Brad Marchand. The Boston Bruins drafted Marchand 71st in the 3rd round of the 2006 draft. Taken ahead of him were Phil Kessel in the first round, Milan Lucic in the second, Yuri Alexandrov who has even sniffed the NHL. Kessel is second in […]
