Is it just me!!!

Is it just me, or does Kovalev seem much slower this season? I’ve watched him get caught from behind too much this season, including yesterday in Detroit! Moves he made last year aren’t working now.

What's Next For the Leafs?

After the first quarter of the season, there has been a few surprises in regards to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

For a team devoid of any top 6 forwards apparently, the Leafs are among the best offensive teams in the NHL. They are in the top 10 in terms of goals a game and top 5 on the powerplay.

We’ve all heard a lot of these rumours sending Michael Nylander to Chicago for either Byfuglien, Sopel, Khabibulin or whoever it is. But I’m not sure this is a good idea. Yes, the Hawks need a 2nd line center. Yes, Nylander fits this bill. But he isn’t what Chicago really needs : a big body.

Senators Goaltending Woes… or Wonders?

At the quarter mark of the season, the Ottawa Senators’ problems are well documented. They have won only 6 of 19 games, giving them a winning percentage of .316, last in the league. They have only scored 44 goals, second worst in the league. Despite all this, I keep hearing trade rumors involving goaltenders going to the Sens, when goaltending has been the one strenght so far.
