Blues’ Blue Line Shakeup Is Coming

Over the past several seasons, the St. Louis Blues have been constant in one area: defense. Particularly since the Ken Hitchcock era, the Blues have focused on having a stout defense, and their personnel has not changed much. But the times, they are a changin. For a number of different reasons, the cast of characters on the Blues’ blue line is about to face a significant turnover. What does that mean, who will be affected, and who, if anyone, is safe? Five Plus Years of Pietrangelo & Bouwmeeste...

Player and Puck Tracking in the NHL

Mark Giordano and John Tavares are keen to see what player and puck tracking brings to the NHL. They're just not exactly sure how all the data — the new technology is expected to provide as many as 10,000 statistical categories compared to the hundreds the league now has — will impact the on-ice product, if at all. "A lot of analytics have come into the game in recent years, but I still believe you really have to watch the game and the eye test is the best one," said Giordano, captain of t...

Corey Perry practices with Ducks for first time in 4 months

ANAHEIM — Corey Perry practiced with his Ducks teammates Tuesday for the first time since he felt something pop in his right knee during the pregame warmup before an exhibition game Sept. 24 against the Arizona Coyotes at Honda Center. He underwent surgery to mend cartilage and a ligament two days later. Perry said Tuesday he had been skating for the past “eight, nine, 10 days” with Larry Barron, the Ducks’ skating and skill development coach. It was hard work, grueling and mind-numbing activity...

Predators’ Laviolette Wins 600th Game

On Jan. 21, Nashville Predators head coach Peter Laviolette won his 600th regular-season game in the National Hockey League. It was also his 211th victory in his 379th game as head coach of the Predators. In a league that has been, and remains, filled with quality head coaches, one might think that winning 600 regular season games is common. That thought would be incorrect.

Sabres’ 10-Game Win Streak – a Blessing or Curse?

On Nov. 27, as the Buffalo Sabres tallied their 10th straight win, a 3-2 overtime victory over the San Jose Sharks, excitement and euphoria filled KeyBank Center. They seemed as sure of a thing as ever to make the playoffs for the first time since the 2010-11 season. That feels like eons ago.

Is Hockey Living Dr. King’s Dream?

On Monday, Jan 21, much of the United States will enjoy a holiday – Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Many will celebrate the legacy of the slain civil rights leader in parades.

Bruins Don’t Need Spooner Reunion

With news of Ryan Spooner being placed on waivers by the Edmonton Oilers on Monday once again reminding the hockey world that Peter Chiarelli should stop making one-for-one trades, it’s also led to questions regarding Spooner’s future. While a reunion with the Boston Bruins is a logical talking point given the fact that he was drafted by the team and spent the first five-plus seasons of his career in Boston, it would not be a good idea for general manager Don Sweeney to put in a waiver claim.

Are the Maple Leafs Simply Not Good Enough?

After John Tavares signed as a Toronto Maple Leaf last summer, the hopes of the fans were buoyant. Certainly, this was to be the season the team would contend for the Stanley Cup after so many seasons of frustration. With the exception of the drama of William Nylander’s extended holdout, everything looked so promising. This team would rock! That hasn’t happened. After a strong start, the Maple Leafs are on a losing skid no one saw coming. In fact, with last night’s 4-2 loss against the sud...

What’s Happened To The Toronto Maple Leafs?

from Rosie DiManno of the Toronto Star, Man, these are some haggard Maple Leafs. Scrawny and scuffling. Lost all the roses in their cheeks from a couple of months ago. Starting to look haunted, ashen. Collars tightening with Sunday night’s raggedy 4-2 submission to the Coyotes, yet another opponent Toronto should have had for breakfast. What in blazes is happening? Because there’s definitely little fire in the belly of this gang, through just about all of 2019. And, shiver...

Bruins Need Pivotal Piece to Become Cup Contenders

The Boston Bruins’ 2018-19 season has been a rollercoaster, and we haven’t even made it to the All-Star break. It started with a 7-0 loss to the Washington Capitals on opening night that left those in Boston dumbfounded. They followed this up with four wins, however, immediately proving the naysayers wrong. There was one issue: the Bruins were relying heavily upon their top-line trio of David Pastrnak, Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand. This was quickly targeted by the opposition, and the...

Connor McDavid Is Great, On The Other Hand The Edmonton Oilers Are Not

from Cathal Kelly of the Globe and Mail, It’s still early days, but you are starting to get an ominous, Marcel Dionne feel from Connor McDavid’s career. His ability is undeniable. There is no serious argument over whether he is the best hockey player on the planet. But McDavid, 22, has tied himself for the long term to a team that can’t figure it out. Some sports franchises couldn’t organize a two-car parade. Over the past decade, no one on the Edmonton Oilers' executive has a dri...
