How These Columbus Blue Jackets Were Built

At long last, the Columbus Blue Jackets and their fans have something to celebrate that will last a lifetime. The Blue Jackets swept the top-seeded Tampa Bay Lightning out of the first round of the 2019 NHL Playoffs in stunning fashion. The hockey world will remember this for a long time. Hockey is a copycat league. If someone is successful at something, others will try to do the same thing in the hopes they can get a similar result. The question that a lot of people want to know is just ...

Unlucky Ducks Must Improve Draft Position

Wednesday’s draft lottery did not go as the Anaheim Ducks and their fans wanted. It did go largely as expected, with the Ducks having the eighth-best odds to secure the No. 1 pick or at least a top-three pick. However, instead of obtaining the No. 8 pick, they fell one spot to No. 9. That’s not even the highest pick the Ducks have had in a decade. In 2012, they drafted Hampus Lindholm No. 6 overall in a season where they finished with the same amount of points that they did this season. Now ...

League Wide Notes

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, - No decision yet who will be GM of the expansion Seattle franchise. But league-wide rumors have it down to a three-man short list, Mark Hunter, Ron Hextall and Kelly McCrimmon. Hunter, with a sharp eye for draft talent, resigned as assistant GM in Toronto last spring when Kyle Dubas was named GM. Hextall was canned this season as the Flyers GM. McCrimmon, brother of former Bruins defenseman Brad McCrimmon, joined the expansion Vegas franchise a...

Bruins Taking Unnecessary Risk With Backes

When the Boston Bruins signed David Backes to a five-year contract during the summer of 2016, the expectations for him in Boston were very high. With a cap hit of $6 million per season, Backes was projected to play alongside David Krejci on the second line. Instead, Backes has played primarily in the bottom six for the Bruins, and he has even found himself sitting out games as a healthy scratch for the first time in his career. Backes has seen his production drop each season in Boston and has no...

Bruins’ Latest Acquisitions Provide Depth & Flexibility

The Boston Bruins decided not to make a blockbuster deal at the 2019 NHL Trade Deadline. Last season, they went big on a move to bring Rick Nash to Boston, but in hindsight, that was not the best decision. General manager Don Sweeney has learned from past mistakes and opted for a different approach this time around. Despite rumours that the Bruins were in on the Wayne Simmonds or Mark Stone trades, they instead opted for Charlie Coyle and Marcus Johansson. While that may be disappointing t...

How a minor trade for an unknown defenseman proved to be the biggest move of the 2018 NHL trade deadline

How a minor trade for an unknown defenseman proved to be the biggest move of the 2018 NHL trade deadline originally appeared on As the dust settled after the 2018 NHL trade deadline, there were a number of key moves made to change the landscape of the league and the Stanley Cup race. The biggest move made was by the Tampa Bay Lightning who added the top defenseman on the market in Ryan McDonagh. But there was also a number of other big moves with players like Evander Kane...

High Price To Pay At The Deadline Plus The Issues With The Anaheim Ducks

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, - ... A year ago, the lead trade suspect around the NHL was Rick Nash, and Sweeney outbid all suitors with a package that included a first-round draft pick, defensive prospect Ryan Lindgren, along with Matt Beleskey and Ryan Spooner. A year later, from Boston’s perspective, the art of the deal was offloading Spooner and Beleskey, a pair of wingers once thought to be essential offensive elements (they combined for 59 goals while wearing the Spoke...

Blue Jackets Blank Capitals – Bobrovsky Earns Shutout

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Sergei Bobrovsky made 13 of his 20 saves in the third period to lift the Columbus Blue Jackets over the Washington Capitals 3-0 on Tuesday night. Anthony Duclair, Nick Foligno and Artemi Panarin scored for the Blue Jackets, who won their fourth straight and remained in third place in the Metropolitan Division, two points behind Washington.

Bruins Can’t Afford Panarin

Barring a major collapse, the Boston Bruins will return to the playoffs for the third straight season this spring. The only thing really left to decide is whether or not the Bruins will be the third seed in the Atlantic Division or if they will be in a wild card position. That battle with the Montreal Canadiens is likely to come down to the final few weeks of the season. As of this writing, we are just 13 days away from the NHL’s annual trading deadline. Once again, general manager Don Sweeney a...

Zibanejad Is the Star Rangers Desperately Need

The New York Rangers have been searching for an elite forward for quite some time. There were periods during which it looked like Marian Gaborik or Rick Nash could be that player but neither of them lived up to expectations. Some feel that Jaromir Jagr was the last truly elite player to play for the Rangers. But a new player has thrown his name into the discussion. Mika Zibanejad has put up career numbers this season and is proving that he has the potential to be a star forward. Despite h...

Rangers’ Roster Will See Lindgren Back

The second half of the New York Rangers’ 2018-19 season is about to get underway. With it comes several roster-related questions for the streaky, rebuilding team: When will general manager Jeff Gorton pull the trigger on the next anticipated trade? Which veteran will be sent away next? Will the Rangers do anything to clear up logjams? What about the prospects still fighting for a spot on the NHL roster? That brings us to defenseman Ryan Lindgren, who was recalled from the Hartford Wolf Pac...

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.

Blue Jackets Bury Rangers – Foligno Scores Twice

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Nick Foligno scored twice, Sergei Bobrovsky returned from a team suspension and stopped 22 shots and the Columbus Blue Jackets held off a late surge and defeated the New York Rangers 7-5 Sunday night. Cam Atkinson and Artemi Panarin each had a goal and an assist, Ryan Murray had two assists and nine other players picked up points in the offensive explosion for Columbus.

Bruins’ Trade Deadline Targets

It is hard to believe that trading season is here once again, but as the NHL’s annual All-Star Game creeps a little bit closer that means the deadline is right around the corner. This season there appears to be more of a buyer’s market than anything, which greatly benefits a team like the Boston Bruins. As the Bruins get healthier and the wins continue to pile up, it only strength?ens the team’s case to buy at this deadline. With a number of young players on ‘value deals,’ there might not ...

Regardless, his impact and legacy will be remembered in Columbus for years to come. Nash recently announced his retirement at the age of 34, a result of the lingering effects of multiple concussions sustained over his 15-year NHL career. Understandably, he is placing his...

Afternoon Line- Larry Brooks

Never before and never since has a forward taken at least 80 shots in the Stanley Cup playoffs and scored fewer than five goals. And yet, that was the dubious achievement that stayed with Rick Nash throughout his profoundly mixed tenure as a Ranger — in which he graced New York with his presence for nearly six seasons but left the city, and ultimately the game, with a hole in his résumé as large as his smile and his good heart. -Larry Brooks of the New York Post, where you can read more ...
