Regardless of Read More
  • George Foussekis / Canucks Training Camp Opens; Kesler Fires Back; Burrows VS. Torts TRAINING CAMP OPENS Vancouver Canucks training camp is now open in Whistler and hockey season is officially here. It has been a long summer, but the Vancouver Canucks are ready for a clean slate and a fresh direction. After a big media day yesterday, the veterans and young guys have Read More
  • Thomas Harrington / The Ducks defense Now that I’ve gone through the forward lines, it’s time to turn the attention to the Ducks defense. The Ducks currently have seven defensemen on one-way contracts: Francois Beauchemin, Cam Fowler, Sami Vatanen, Ben Lovejoy, Bryan Allen, Mark Fistric, and Clayton Stoner (I’m excluding Sheldon Souray as he is not Read More
  • Mike Schalin / Oh Captain, my Captain.... {UPDATE} I wrote this blog last Friday at the same time that I wrote my last published blog. During that time, someone from the management team of the Montreal Canadiens hacked my computer, read my blog, and in order to prove me wrong – did the opposite of what I predicted Read More
  • George Foussekis / Random NHL Thoughts - 9/17/14 -Let’s begin in Columbus. Things are getting heated between the Columbus Blue Jackets and restricted free agent Ryan Johansen. So what is the jist of this situation? To start things off, Columbus wanted to give Johansen a two or three year bridge contract. Johansen wanted a long term big money Read More
  • Thomas Harrington / The Ducks' bottom six wingers Based upon Boudreau’s comments, most of the forward lines are set. The top line will have Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, and Dany Heatley. The second line will have Ryan Kesler, Andrew Cogliano, and Jakob Silfverberg. The third and fourth line centers will be Rickard Rakell and Nate Thompson. So the Read More
  • Kristian Miller-Nielsen / Best Scrappers with a side of 1980s WWF Best Scrappers with a side of 1980s WWF Follow me on Twitter @cheeseheader90 I was talking hockey the other day and the topic of fighting came up. I had to admit that I did not know all of the fighters of today because there are so many and it is Read More
  • Reg Bertrand / WHAM!!! Well the just as training camp is about to open up and the summer down days are ending… WHAM!!! What a day of quotes in Senators land. For starters, Donny Brennan of the Ottawa Sun got it going pretty good with his article about Marc Methot. Ottawa Senators veteran Methot Read More
  • Trevor Shackles / Braun signs long-term Wednesday morning the Sharks announced that they’ve extended 27 year-old defenseman Justin Braun to a 5-year contract worth $19 million. The cap hit is $3.8 million per season. Braun still has one year left on his contract with a cap hit of  $1.25 million, and the extension will come into Read More
  • Kady Hobbins / No home for Darnell Nurse? When I watched Darnell Nurse during the 2013-14 pre-season, I was hooked. I loved his style of play, his propensity to battle (and win) against some of the greats of the game, and his overall work ethic. I tweeted something along the lines of, "Don't string me up/burn me at Read More
  • Craig Belanger / Anaheim Ducks fantasy preview                   The Anaheim Ducks are a strong and competitive team and should once again qualify for the playoffs and compete for Lord Stanley’s cup.  The last couple seasons they’ve managed to win the Pacific division, and have done so with very strong Read More
  • Thomas Harrington / Ducks re-sign Smith-Pelly to two year extension It’s a few days before the start of training camp, and the Anaheim Ducks have signed their remaining restricted free agent, Devante Smith-Pelly, to a two year deal worth $800,000 per season. The Ducks drafted Smith-Pelly in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft in the second round, 42nd overall. Smith-Pelly has Read More
  • Trevor Shackles / Lack of leadership Almost a month after Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau were “stripped” of their captaincies, the team has yet to make any announcements or give any sort of clue as to who will be apart of the new leadership group. The team has indicated that there is a slight chance that Read More
  • Reg Bertrand / Alfie, Alfie, Alfie and the Hall? This morning on the way to work I listened to an interesting conversation on XM Radio in regards to Daniel Alfredsson and if he would get voted into the HHoF.  Let’s take a look at this… Now the Hockey Hall of Fame has its debates, is the Hall truly reserved Read More
  • Doug Catt / Pre-season Ah the rookie camp. A nice little showcase for teams to evaluate the young talent they've accumulated. The young Panthers have looked good so far and won their 2 games thus far. The Panthers' tournament is in Nashville this year and unforunately I haven't been able to watch any. It's Read More
  • Kristian Miller-Nielsen / What If? #1 What If? #1 Follow me on Twitter @cheeseheader90 Hello everybody! I am really happy today after my Green Bay Packers came back from a 21-3 score against the New York Jets and won 31-24. Starting the season 0-2 after losing to the crappy Jets would have been tear inducing. Photo: Read More
  • Patrick Conway / Russia's Next Young Goalie At this time last year, when the talk turned to exciting young KHL goalies, all the buzz was about Salavat Yulaev’s Andrei Vasilevsky.  The then-19-year-old would go on to post a respectable .923 save percentage during the 2013-14 regular season, followed by a stellar .934 in 18 playoff games as Read More
  • Reg Bertrand / Projected Lineup - Coach vs. Me As training camp gets closer, and the rookies are on the ice in London, I started jotting down what the lines might start to look like.  There are two sets of lines, one I think that Coach MacLean will deploy and the second set, what I think would be a Read More
  • Lowetide / THE LOAD OUT Bob McKenzie interviewed Oilers GM Craig MacTavish on TSN and if you're an Oilers fan this is must-see stuff. It is here. Among the items of note: They'll make the decision on Draisaitl based on Leon's development, not need. MY TAKE: It doesnt look like it from here. If they Read More
  • Trevor Shackles / Five players to sell high on in fantasy hockey Fantasy hockey players are always looking for a leg up against their friends and seeing how they can make them look like fools. Every year there will be lists published about whom to draft and whom not to draft, and here I’ll be doing something similar. I decided I’d name Read More
