In July of 2016 I was at a charity golf tournament in Saskatoon. It was 2 months before the World Cup and 4 of Canada’s coaches were in attendance; Mike Babcock, Barry Trotz, Joel Quenneville, and Claude Julien….. not bad. To interact with the people in attendance, the coaches went […]
It’s not everyday you hear of players turn down the chance to play with the best player in the NHL… until you realize you have to live and play in Edmonton.
Tampa paying $9.5 for Nikita Kucherov who leans heavily on his teammates and is relatively unproven when games get tough is laughable.
Volume 1 of promotions and relegation’s makes a stop in the Czech Republic.
With a new unproven coach in Bill Peters I’m really not sure he’s the man to lead the charge, but some of the new additions will help out.
As soon as the Edmonton Oilers drafted Connor McDavid everyone presumed the battle of Alberta to be over, but thanks to poor drafting, signings and lack of execution…. The Calgary Flames have passed the Oilers. If you’re asking me if I’d take Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl over Sean Monahan […]
The 2018-19 Continental Cup stage is set.
What do Dan Boyle, Curtis Joseph, Brian Rafalski, Adam Oates, Ed Belfour and Martin St Louis all have in common?
John Tavares will meet with 5 teams at his agency this week in LA. Tavares is unable to sign anything (outside of Brooklyn) until July 1st. The teams are reported to be the Maple Leafs, Stars, Sharks, Bruins, and Lightning. The Islanders are obviously in the running still and GM […]
1. Buffalo- Rasmus Dahlin Best defensemen to come into the draft in the last 20 years. There’s a reason he is being compared to Nick Lidstrom. 2. Carolina- Andrei Svechnikov 40 goals in 44 games. An absolute sniper who can score many different ways. Is he closer to Vladimir Tarasenko […]
Xavier Bouchard, Defense Baie-Comeau Drakkar 6’3 191 65GP 3G 18A 21P 52PIM -30 Played on a very average Baie-Comeau team. A big right shot defencemen is what lots of teams want in todays NHL so Bouchard will be drafted on that alone. Had a down year from last year […]
Adam Mascherin, Left Wing Kitchener Rangers 5’9 197 67GP 40G 46A 86P 20PIM +14 Once drafted by Florida but refused to sign. Adam Mascherin is going back into the draft. He is as good of scorer in the middle rounds that you’re going to find. Also undersized but weighs […]
James Malm, Centre Vancouver Giants 5’9 164lbs 72GP 19G 47A 66P 26PIM +6 An undersized play-making centre. Not going to be a big scorer at any level but can get it to guys who can score. His line mate Ty Ronning had a career high 61 goals (all the […]
Jakub Skarek is big, moves well and seems almost NHL ready, so why would teams pass up on him?
Since 2010 the Manitoba Junior Hockey League has had 12 alumni drafted to the NHL.
Say that name ten times fast…..
Teams looking for a big winger might want to give this kid a serious look.
If the NHL was trying to get on ESPN or even TMZ they’ve succeeded.
How many misses has Peter Chiarelli had as the Oilers GM? He’s got rid of Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle, and essentially Mat Barzal. He replaced Hall with a combination of Larsson and Milan Lucic, he replaced Eberle with Ryan Strome, and he replaced Mat Barzal with nobody because Griffin Reinhart […]
The Calgary Flames have a new German addition.
