Revisiting David Poile’s Drafts – 2002

For the past few weeks, I’ve been diving into David Poile’s draft history as general manager of the Nashville Predators. Since he’s been the franchise’s only GM, he’s been at the helm for every draft since 1998. Beginning with that first draft, I’m working forward to the present, with this installment covering the 2002 Draft. For reference, here are the drafts I’ve covered so far: 1998: Franchise’s Inaugural Draft1999: Erat Leads to Forsberg2000: Scott Hartnell and Nothing Else2001: Hamhuis a...

Capitals Play With More Urgency

The Washington Capitals opened the 2019 NHL Playoffs against the Carolina Hurricanes and looked confident holding serve at home with a 2-0 series lead. Carolina responded by limiting Washington to one goal over the next two games, knotting the series at two apiece, and knocking out superstar T.J. Oshie in one of the most chippy games in recent history. With the Canes playing with emotion in front of their boisterous home fans, was Saturday a must win home game for the Caps in order to advanc...

Islanders’ Storylines Heading Into the Second Round

As the Islanders wait for their second round opponent, either the Washington Capitals or Carolina Hurricanes, there’s still plenty of news and storylines to follow surrounding the team. Boychuk out 3 to 4 Weeks While Cal Clutterbuck, Jordan Eberle, and Scott Mayfield appear to be getting healthy and will be ready for the second round, the same cannot be said about Johnny Boychuk, who will miss three to four weeks with a lower-body injury after blocking a shot in Game 4 against the Pitt...

How Sweep it is! Ranking the Best Sweeps in Islanders’ History

Last Tuesday the New York Islanders completed a four-game sweep of the Pittsburgh Penguins. It was the franchise’s first sweep in over three decades. While this is a new sight for younger fans, the Islanders franchise is no stranger to a best of seven sweeps. Between the years 1977 and 1983, the Isles completed a best of seven sweep on six different occasions. So what’s the best sweep the Islanders have ever pulled off? In order to decide that we need to look at three things: strength of ...

Why the Lightning and Penguins Were Eliminated

Scotty Bowman had already coached six teams to the Stanley Cup championship when his high-powered Detroit Red Wings that won 12 of their first 14 playoff games couldn’t get the puck away from the New Jersey Devils and got swept in the 1995 final. “They just shut us right down,” Bowman said. “We were shocked, but it happens.” The coach with the most Stanley Cup rings in NHL history wasn’t as shocked to see the Tampa Bay Lightning get swept out of the first round this post-season after tyi...

Should the Oilers Consider Kris Letang?

After losing four games to the New York Islanders, the Pittsburgh Penguins are a team about to make some significant changes. GM Jim Rutherford told media Thursday during a press conference: I wonder if there’s too many guys content with where they are at in their careers after winning a couple of Stanley Cups and is that a signal where some of that has to be changed?” .. “We have a lot of good players and players with good resumes… Depending what changes we decide to make, we have valuable a...

Canucks News & Rumors: Defense, Kadri, Goalies & President

As the hockey world sits in shock over the quick exits of both the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Pittsburgh Penguins in first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, teams that didn’t make the “second season” are strategizing to fill needs, work with those players already under contract, and consider what players the team wants to sign for next season.

Rangers Must Finally Decide on Kreider

For the New York Rangers and Chris Kreider, decision time has just about arrived. General manager Jeff Gorton and the front office have at long last reached that point, the one at which they’ll need to decide on how to proceed with their uber-talented forward whose promise has proved impossible to give up on, but who hasn’t shown nearly enough of it in seven years on Broadway to have already been locked up with a long-term extension. The Blueshirts can’t wait any longer. With one year at a...

Penguins Face Crucial Offseason After Flameout

PITTSBURGH — Jim Rutherford’s question was rhetorical. The answer — whenever the architect the Pittsburgh Penguins general manager arrives at it — will determine how the franchise emerges from the rubble of a first-round playoff sweep at the hands of the New York Islanders. “Are guys too content with where they’re at in their careers because they’ve won a couple of Stanley Cups?” Rutherford wondered aloud Thursday as his team packed up for its longest off-season in 13 years. Penguins at a...

Penguins Playoff History With the Islanders Grows Deeper

No tarot card reader or Ouija board would have predicted the New York Islanders would sweep the Pittsburgh Penguins out of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang, Phil Kessel and the rest had too much firepower and playoff experience. The Islanders were too young and lacked leadership and big time goaltending. While millennial Penguins fans lament this most recent beat down, it only adds another chapter to the a history of Penguins stinging losses to the Isles...

Maple Leafs & Bruins Reflect on ‘Shocking’ Sweep of the Lightning

TORONTO — Bruce Cassidy didn't see it coming. And quite frankly, neither did many others.

Lightning, Penguins, Jets & Golden Knights Look to Bounce Back Tonight

The Tampa Bay Lightning faced little adversity in the regular season on the way to a record-tying 62 wins and the most points in a season in 23 years. That all changed as fast as the Lightning squandered a three-goal lead before losing 4-3 to the Columbus Blue Jackets in Game 1 of their first-round series Wednesday night. Now a team that lost consecutive games just twice all season, must rebound in Game 2 at home on Friday night (7 p.m. EDT, CNBC) or be in danger of a quick playoff stay follo...

Why the Capitals Won’t Repeat as Champs

Only one team, the Pittsburgh Penguins, has hoisted Lord Stanley’s Cup in back-to-back seasons since the tun of the century, and only one other team, the Detroit Red Wings, has done so since the days of Wayne Gretzky and the Edmonton Oilers dynasty of the 1980s. Winning the Cup is hard to do once, let alone consecutively, and we can thank the high level of parity in the league today for that. For the Capitals faithful excited at the prospect of another deep run into the postseason, these Stan...

Unlucky Ducks Must Improve Draft Position

Wednesday’s draft lottery did not go as the Anaheim Ducks and their fans wanted. It did go largely as expected, with the Ducks having the eighth-best odds to secure the No. 1 pick or at least a top-three pick. However, instead of obtaining the No. 8 pick, they fell one spot to No. 9. That’s not even the highest pick the Ducks have had in a decade. In 2012, they drafted Hampus Lindholm No. 6 overall in a season where they finished with the same amount of points that they did this season. Now ...
