Flyers season preview

Although many might say it is far too early to look into the season with so much time left in the offseason for an occasional huge move or two. However, I think that this team needs a real in depth look at because they are a big question mark team going into the season.

Sticking up for Big Nik

There have been a lot of rumors floating around about Nik Antropov being shopped (to Detroit, Chicago…) and so many people believe he is useless. I disagree.

Washington/Pittsburgh Rivalry

As a Penguin fan my whole life, living just outside of the city, I’ve grown a hatred for the Washington Capitals. Now I know, especially Toronto and Montreal Fans, some of y’all believe certain rivalries are the best in the NHL.

Upward and Downward Trends in the NHL

Just a few years ago the Colorado Avalanche looked as if they would always be on top of the league. Today, it wouldn’t be very far-fetched to predict the Avs to be in bottom 8 in the West at the end of next years season. On the other hand, the Anahiem Ducks are by most considered cup contenders for next season, possibly battling teams like Nashville, Pheonix, or even Minnesota in the opening round of the playoffs.

Since relocating to the depths of the deep american south it is going to be a heck of a lot harder to watch all the games this year, but hey living in Florida does beat living in Calgary!!! From an Oiler Fans prospective anyway!

Future is looking great for the Oilers!

Now, I have never been a huge fan of the Edmonton Oilers, but I can honestly say that I jumped on the band wagon last year as they came oh so close to winning the cup. When I look at their roster, I see great things now, and more importantly in the future.
