surprize players for 06-07 season

There are players who breakout as superstars every year and there are players in the nhl that dont quite get the credit they deserve here are a few that i think fit into that category

Canadian teams

To many, it would be a dream to see all 6 Canadian teams make the playoffs. It almost happened last season, with the Leafs and Cannucks taking 9th in their conferences. Could this year be the year?

The Best of the Best

Today I was pondering, what would make the best lineup in the world? I know there has been many threads made up in a bunch of different sites about the best lines, but one needs to look not at the line, but the player. To put the best line together, you need to know the best players at their position. This is what I plan on doing, analyzing the best players in their position.

Hey Jason, Anson – Getting Lonely?

In one of my keeper leagues, I have the pleasure of owning Jason Allison, of no fixed address. Those poolies that also own him know one thing: it’s a waste of time trying to trade him. The same goes for owners of Anson Carter, Mike Leclerc, Oleg Kvasha, J.P. Dumont, Valeri Bure, Radek Dvorak, Peter Bondra, Yanic Perreault, and Brian Leetch. These guys were not the dregs of the unrestricted free agent lot (heck, Dumont wasn’t even a free agent three weeks ago!), but they are the best of what’s left.

Best and Worst Top Lines in the NHL

With team rosters pretty much set for the upcoming season, the question arises, “Which team’s top line will be the most and the least productive?”

Battling in the Atlantic

This current offseason has certainly changed the look of many teams. These new looks could be viewed both for the good or bad of the team in many’s eyes. However, this season is full of tighter divisional races as well as conference and league wide competetion.

Canucks talking to Allison and Dvorak?

There has been a rumor floating around that the Vancouver Canucks are in negotiations with forwards Jason Allison and Radek Dvorak. Dvorak is believed to be seeking anywhere from $1 to $2 million.

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.

Brian to Edmonton????

According to media reports The Edmonton Oilers and Brian Leetch have been talking in hopes of signing him to a contract.
