Canucks News & Rumors: Benning, Biega, Pettersson & Bure

It’s a difficult part of the season for the Vancouver Canucks, one way or another. The team has all but been eliminated from the playoffs, yet they went into Dallas and Chicago took two overtime wins from the Stars (in a shootout) and the Blackhawks (when Bo Horvat scored 16 seconds into overtime). Most fans might suggest that it’s a time when the Canucks should be losing, but this is a team that seems to win when it should be losing and loses when it should be winning. There is a slight cha...

The Edmonton Oilers Are Close To Missing The Playoffs Again

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, What we’re dealing with now is a certified, verified, fully accredited, official ‘Death March’. It’s ‘Tragic Number’ time. That’s the opposite of ‘Magic Number’ time. After the Tuesday debacle in St. Louis in which the Blues chased Mikko Koskinen early in the second period and had a 4-0 lead at the same time the Oilers had registered their fifth shot on goal of the game en route to 7-2 drubbing, Edmonton’s ‘Tragic Number became six. Th...

Coyotes Weekly: Still in the Playoff Hunt

With less than three weeks to go, and with the Arizona Coyotes still firmly entrenched in a tight race for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, there’s no doubt that, over the next few weeks, every game (and point) matters. There are only nine games remaining, and only 18 more points can be gathered, giving the Coyotes a 96-point maximum for this season. Six wins in those nine games will give Arizona 90 points – would that be enough to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs? Can they ...

Oilers Season Seat Event Didn’t Help Sway Fans

The Edmonton Oilers held a season ticket seat holder breakfast event on Monday morning. By most of the accounts **, the event was appreciated. It also didn’t sway many from their decision not to renew their season seats for next year. With a number of fans looking at three percent increases on the prices of their seats from last season but the Edmonton Oilers a team that will now have to pretty much run the table in their last ten games to make the postseason, there is a strong appetite not to...

Revisiting David Poile’s Drafts – 1998

The Nashville Predators have been an NHL franchise since the 1998-99 season after the city was granted an expansion team in June 1997. In their 20 seasons of existence, there has been one constant: general manager David Poile, who’s served that role since the franchise’s inception. Therefore, he’s been the architect of every team that’s suited up, from the inaugural roster through the 2018-19 rendition. That means he’s been the decision-maker in a lot of drafts and has made a lot of picks, 178 t...

Edmonton Oilers Final Run: 3 Good, 3 Bad, 3 Worse

With only twelve games left in the NHL season for the Edmonton Oilers and the team eight points back of a wild-card spot in the Western Conference, the playoffs aren’t looking very likely. Such a fate is unfortunate, since, the loss to the New Jersey Devils notwithstanding, the Oilers have looked pretty good as of late. Whatever happens with the last few games in March, there is some good and bad to take from the season and this final stretch run. What you choose to focus on as an Oilers fan is ...

Underappreciated Stars

from Greg Wyshynski of ESPN, Here are eight NHL players who are consistently lauded as being underappreciated when, in fact, it's well-established that they're incredible. Mark Giordano, Calgary Flames Speaking of defensive prowess, the reason Giordano is going to win the Norris this season is because the voters would have already given him one had it not been for injuries derailing two seasons. He has 65 points in 68 games, has the "old guy having career year" narrative, an...

Phil Housley’s Seat Is Red Hot

The Buffalo Sabres’ post-game answers have become as cliché as they get. The excuses flow faster than outlet passes from their zone. The blank stares match their scoreboard total. There’s talk about adding jam to their game. Competing. Digging deeper. It’s a broken record. “I don’t know what else to do. I don’t know what to say,” said a stymied Kyle Okposo after the Sabres dropped their sixth straight game, 5-0 to the Pittsburgh Penguins.  The Sabres are 0-5-1 in their last six, 7-17-3 in t...

The Edmonton Oilers With Another Bad Loss At Home

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, So, that’s how it ends? The Edmonton Oilers go 7-2-2 in their previous 11 to keep themselves marginally in the race for the final playoff position in the Western Conference. And then they do that? At home? Just as they appear to be coming up in the rearview mirror of the teams ahead of them, a gimme game finally comes along, and they gag on it? Gas it? Stink the joint out? Absolutely reek? And they not only lose it, they lose it 6-3 to the...

Mid-March Hockey Thoughts

from Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, - In his magnificent Hall of Fame–worthy career, Patrice Bergeron has never received one first-place vote for the Hart Trophy. He has four seconds (all in 2014, which is the only time he’s received anything more than a fourth-place vote). Is it possible he is the most under-appreciated great player ever? - Everywhere you went at the GM meetings last week in Boca, Edmonton CEO Bob Nicholson was meeting with someone. He was rarely alone, constantly p...

New Jersey Devils (LW: 26) Now these guys know how to tank: They're in the midst of a six-game losing streak, with five of those losses in regulation, and they're 10-19-2 in the new year. They're only fourth-bottom in the league, though. Wow, those other teams must be really bad.
