Revisiting David Poile’s Draft – 2000

Recently, I’ve been going through David Poile’s drafts as general manager of the Nashville Predators to determine which years were successful at producing talent and which ones weren’t. So far I’ve looked at the 1998 Draft, which produced franchise icon David Legwand, and the 1999 Draft, when Poile selected Martin Erat, who was eventually traded for Filip Forsberg. In this installment, I continue moving forward to the 2000 Draft, the year the New York Islanders took Rick Dipietro first overal...

Handicapping Flames Potential Playoff Opponents

For the third time in five seasons under general manager Brad Treliving, the Calgary Flames are headed to the Stanley Cup playoffs. But for a team that has escaped the first round just twice in the last 30 years, the luck of the draw in the opening round could be massively important. Some potential first round opponents would be more of a challenge for the Calgary Flames than others. (THE CANADIAN PRESS/Jeff McIntosh) The odds-makers and standings projections have the Flames likely f...

A Recent History of Coyotes Deadline Deals

For the first time in quite a while, Arizona Coyotes had a relatively uneventful trade deadline day. They weren’t buyers. They weren’t sellers. They just…sat around and watched. And that isn’t a bad thing – the ‘Yotes have been ravaged by injuries this year, and they knew they’d be getting multiple injured players back in the days following the Feb. 25 trade deadline. John Chayka didn’t have to do much at the 2019 NHL trade deadline. (Photo by Dave Sandford/NHLI via Getty Images) And indeed th...

Jets’ Beaulieu Has a Chance to Make Big Impact

As key as the recently-acquired Kevin Hayes will likely be for the Winnipeg Jets down the stretch and into the playoffs, it’s new defenseman Nathan Beaulieu that has the chance to make the biggest immediate impact on the team. Beaulieu Thrust Into the Spotlight Just prior to the Feb. 25 NHL Trade Deadline’s 3 p.m. (ET) cutoff, the Jets acquired Beaulieu from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for a 2019 sixth-round pick.

Coyotes Keep Pace in Crowded Playoff Race

The Arizona Coyotes, winners of seven of their last nine, are getting hot at the right time. There’s only one problem, though – everyone else they’re trying to chase down for a playoff spot got hot, too.

Ducks center Ryan Kesler celebrates end of 38-game goal drought

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Ryan Kesler smiled Tuesday. He embraced his teammates on the ice. He raised his arms and looked toward the Xcel Energy Center ceiling as boos rained down upon him from the stands as the Ducks took a three-goal lead en route to a 4-0 victory over the Minnesota Wild. “About (expletive) time,” Kesler would later say. Kesler’s last goal was Nov. 6 against the Kings, a Mojave-like dry patch of 38 games that called into question his future with the Ducks and in the NHL. His last poin...

The Minnesota Wild Had A Three Goal Lead, But Lose In OT To The New Jersey Devils

from Sarah McLellan of the Star Tribune, In their first chance to make their own statement on the ice, Wild players didn’t exactly back up coach Bruce Boudreau’s claim that this is a team that wants to make the playoffs and will. Instead, it continued to make its climb tougher by collapsing yet again — this time in more dramatic fashion. After squandering a three-goal lead, the team combusted 5-4 in overtime to the Devils Friday in front of an announced 19,041 at Xcel Energy Cente...

Pettersson Is the Canucks’ Best Rookie Ever

When the Vancouver Canucks picked fifth in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, the team’s surprise selection was a skinny Swedish kid named Elias Pettersson. And, what an amazing selection it was. Pettersson, almost personally, has changed the fortunes and the future of the Canucks. He gave fans a reason to attend games, and game after game he dazzles with his abilities to elude defenders, find open teammates, and score himself. Saturday’s game against the division-leading Calgary Flames was no exce...
