Senators Should Bring Spezza Back

Many NHL players circle back to the team that drafted them late in their careers. This could be the case if they retire and go back in a coaching or front office role, or provide a veteran presence on the ice for the next wave of players. Jason Spezza could be the latest to go full circle in his career by returning home to the Ottawa Senators.

Helping Holland Find Forwards for Oilers

Ken Holland needs to find the Oilers some new forwards before fall.

Acquiring wingers that can put the puck in the net will be one of his top priorities this summer. There are only three roster locks up front for the Oilers — the go-to guys that everybody knows: captain Connor McDavid, Le...

Sabres Have Options if Skinner Walks

The acquisition of Jeff Skinner proved to be a real coup for both the Buffalo Sabres and Skinner. For Skinner, he tied a career high in points with 63 and set a new career mark for goals by reaching 40. For the Sabres, they found a legitimate winger for star centre Jack Eichel and their first 40-goal scorer since Thomas Vanek in 2008-09. The match is unquestionably a great fit. That’s why Skinner’s lack of a contract is so concerning to Sabres fans. As July 1 nears, it becomes more and more l...

In the 2018-19 season, Stone was a part of a blockbuster trade between the Ottawa Senators and the Golden Knights. Between both teams, Stone was a threat offensively and tough to beat defensively.
