Sophomore Jinx or Lucky Rookie Year?

The Boston Bruins, picked by many to be one of the top teams in the tough Eastern Conference, have been in a major tailspin over the past 10 games and don’t appear to be coming out any time soon, regardless of their recent 5-1 victory over the Maple Leafs.

Bargain Basement Beauties

Here are Pat Hickey’s (Montreal Gazette) ten best bargains in the NHL, value for the buck, in no particular order;

Guys who don't belong in the NHL

Did anyone catch what the motivation for Fedorek’s hit on Nedved was? Who did he say he had a problem with?? Was it Nedved??? I need a platform to get this off my chest and to see how others feel about this problem. Last night I was at the Coyotes/Anaheim game. Good game. Probably the most hits I’ve seen in one game this season. My problem comes with the Fedorek hit and his motivation behind it. Let me explain…

1 QUARTER DOWN AND KINGS DOMINATING

The 2005-06 season is 1 quarter over and the LA Kings are 1st in a very tight Pacific division and 2nd in the Western Conference (one point behind 1st place Detroit). What is the reason behind the LA Kings success?

Blackhawks coach might be responsible for team's poor performances.

I’m not and have never been a Chicago Blackhawks fan but what got me thinking about this article was that I picked Tyler Arnason in one hockey pool. He’s having a slow start as well as the team so it got me wondering why there weren’t any guys making points at all in this team…

Sykora's bill too much for Anaheim

The Anaheim Mighty Ducks are reportedly shopping RW Petr Sykora.

There are no teams rumored to be interested as of now which leads me to believe he may just be a healthy scratch. But with Getzlaf and Perry sent to the AHL yesterday, this story is heating up quickly that a deal could be done or close to it.

Too Much Depth?

With a month to go before decision time which players will be able to play their way onto the team, which ones will play their way off of it and who`s a lock? Injuries are as of yet not a major problem, but a month could change that. Long story short, who`s going to make up Team Canada for the 2006 Games?

Early Season Vezina

So far this season, goal scoring is way up; save %’s are way down, but there as also been a changing of the guard in nets!

Marchant claimed by Ducks

After trading away Sergei Federov last week, The Score is reporting that Brian Burke has picked up C Todd Marchant off waivers.

LEETCH COME HOME!!

Ranger fans are talking. Every time that the Power Play fails for the Rangers (who are 16th overall on the Power Play) It becomes more and more clear the hole that’s left for the Rangers to fill… and that is a Power Play Quarterback… and for the Rangers.. The only one who would be accepted to take that roll is none other then the man who last filled it.

Brian Leetch! Come home.

Marchant put on waivers… Again!

One week after putting center Todd Marchant on waivers, the Blue Jackets are at it again, waiving him one more time…

Florida Bound

Oilers trade young defenseman to the city of sunshine

Could the Oilers actually be better than Detroit?

last nights Oiler win got me thinking about this…I really don’t know. I’d say they have a slight advantage, but before you give an answer, consider this:
