Blue Jackets Enter Deadline on Deceptive Losing Streak

Be careful how you view the Columbus Blue Jackets these days. Depending on which numbers you look at, you might get an entirely different story than what’s really going on. Entering Saturday night’s game against the Nashville Predators, the Blue Jackets lost seven games in a row. That hasn’t happened to the team since the infamous 0-8-0 start that cost Todd Richards his coaching job. A loss to the Predators would tie that mark for losses. But there’s a catch. Within the seven game losing s...

Senators’ Trade Bait & Potential Landing Spots

The Ottawa Senators once again look to be gearing up for a busy trade deadline on Feb. 24. Five players currently sit on the TSN Trade Bait list, two of which are among the top three. While the crop of trade targets is less enticing than last year’s, teams have shown that they are willing to pay high prices to bolster their rosters for the playoffs. Already, several players have been traded, including the Senators’ own Dylan DeMelo, who was sent to the Winnipeg Jets for a third-round pick. R...

Coyotes Weekly: Gearing Up for the Trade Deadline

The 2019-20 NHL trade deadline is right around the corner, and, with the Arizona Coyotes’ playoff hopes being very much up in the air at the current point in time, general manager John Chayka may be considering adding to his roster this year after a relatively quiet deadline in 2019.

Windsor Spitfires’ Weekly: East, Mickey Renaud, First Responders

The long-awaited busy schedule for the Windsor Spitfires is finally here. With one month to go in the regular season and just a few points separating five teams in the OHL’s Western Conference, it’s a pretty big deal. From a big Eastern trip to honouring a former captain — another road trip to some very important people — life’s not slowing down in the Rose City. Back in September, the Spitfires were coming off an eighth-place finish in the Western Conference. Most predictions for 2019-20 ha...

Assessing the Maple Leafs Ahead of the Trade Deadline

Five days ahead of the Feb. 24, 2020, NHL Trade Deadline, there has already been an abundance of trade activity. Some of the biggest pieces of trade bait have already been moved, and some of these players have fetched a larger return than what many people had anticipated. That said, there are names that still remain in play and the Toronto Maple Leafs will certainly be part of those conversations as we inch closer to deadline day. The Trade Market So Far As of Feb. 19, first and second-...

DeMelo Deal a Deft One for Jets

The Winnipeg Jets have made a deft move by dealing for Dylan DeMelo.

DeMelo an Immediate Upgrade Much has been made about the Jets’ defensive deficiencies in 2019-20, which are due to a combination a mass exodus after the 2018-19 campaign, general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff’s inaction over the offseason, ...

2020 NHL Trade Deadline: Fisher’s Big Board of Bait

It is a sellers’ market and the prices are steep. That is evident, based on the deals to date. Teams wanting to upgrade ahead of Monday’s NHL trade deadline are going to pay a premium, especially for players with term. See Blake Coleman. Even the rentals — from top-six wingers like Tyler Toffoli to bottom-pairing defenders like Marco Scandella — are fetching significant (and surprising) returns. Nobody is coming cheap. The 2020 NHL Trade Deadline is approaching. Make sure you're ...

Senators’ 3 Worst Contracts Ever

The Ottawa Senators have not been known to spend large amounts of cash in free agency. Unfortunately, the franchise has made mistakes when it comes to the re-signing of certain players. In managing contracts, the salary cap is paramount. These contracts handicapped the Senators for years, and some are still having repercussions. These are the worst contracts in team history: Dis-Honourable Mention: Milan Michalek Many Senators fans see Milan Michalek as one of the pieces of the Dany Heat...

Ottawa Senators Legend – Chris Phillips

There’s something special about a player who spends his entire career with one team. Whereas it used to be a common occurrence – think Mario Lemieux, Jean Beliveau, or Joe Sakic – the salary cap era has made the feat somewhat rarer. Now, franchise players often finish their careers in other markets. It’s led to the departure of Daniel Alfredsson from the Ottawa Senators, to Jarome Iginla getting traded from the Calgary Flames, or to Martin Brodeur making a brief appearance with the St. Louis Blu...

Ugly Team Stats

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News, There have been a lot of things ailing the Red Wings this season, some more than others. Lack of offense has been a problem often, and never more so than in recent games. The Wings are coming off a four-game road trip in which they scored five goals total. In the 10 games since they’ve returned from the All-Star break, the Wings have scored a grand total of 14 goals. It’s just not good enough to win – and the Wings obviously haven’t been do...

Steve Yzerman’s Best Lightning Trades

Steve Yzerman shocked the hockey world when he stepped down as general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning in September 2018. He was the GM and vice president of the Lightning since 2010, and had been one of the most successful GM’s in recent memory. For many of his years in Tampa Bay, the Bolts had been favorites to make a run for the Stanley Cup. There was a lot of hard work in the organization, but Yzerman made some key trades and drafted some key players to help the Lightning get to where ...

Maple Leafs News & Rumors: Campbell, Worst Trade, Nylander & Marchment

Well, it didn’t take long before Jack Campbell endeared himself to other Toronto Maple Leafs players. All game long against the Ottawa Senators on Feb. 15, when play stopped in front of his net, he was tapping away on his teammates – thanking them for this play or that as they helped him keep shots out of the net. Obviously, it worked because his Maple Leafs beat a surprisingly resistant and determined Senators’ team that pressed all night long. The final score was 4-2 Toronto. Related: Maple...

Senators’ DeMelo Should Be Kept

Rebuilding NHL teams often find themselves in a position where flipping pending free agents is the best course of action, but that rule isn’t universal and doesn’t have to be. Dylan DeMelo is an unrestricted free agent on July 1, as he wraps up his 2 year, $1.8 million contract, and the Senators should do everything they can to keep him in Ottawa. DeMelo was acquired as somewhat of a throw-in in the Erik Karlsson trade, but has carved a niche in a respectable role for the team. Dylan ...
