Player Profile: Bryan McCabe Edition

I liked the response to my first new feature, and the comparison of the Sens to the Oilers of the 80’s is great, but I don’t think they’ll ever be that dominant…also the Sens are a few years older then the Oilers were when they won in 84… not that much, but old enough that it wouldn’t be a bunch of kids dominating the NHL like the Oilers were.

So here it is… the player profile… for Bryan McCabe…

Two Stars Down

According to, both Alex Kovalev of the Montreal Canadiens and Martin St. Louis of the Tampa Bay Lightning are injured and could be sidelined for a while…

Team Report: What it will take to stop the dominant Senators…

I do not believe the Sens will win the cup, I have my money on Philadelphia for the time being… But there is one thing that can stop the Sens from ever becomming my cup favorites, and that can’t happen until December the 17th…

Note: This is a new feature I’ll be doing regularly, team reports will come every couple days when there is a big story on a team, I’ll also be doing player profiles likely starting with Bryan McCabe.

Blues On The Move?

Andy Strickland who covers the St. Louis Blues and blogs on Hockeybuzz is reporting that the sale of the team to Dave Checketts has hit a significant snag and may no longer be a certainty. Earlier this weekend he wrote in the same space that if the Checketts did not purchase the team it was possible the Blues would leave St. Louis. That got me wondering, where would the team end up?

50 in 50?

So far in this early season, there are a number of players on pace to get 50 goals in 50 games…

Rebuilding the Blues

Oh how the mighty have fallen, but all is not lost in St. Louis. Here is what I expect them to do to try and be competitive again.

Help Wanted!

Niinimaa showcased in NY last night

Here’s an excerpt from Newsday today covering last nights Islanders/Bruins game:

“Niinimaa, who has another year on his contract at $2.5 million, is being showcased. The press box was filled with scouts again last night, with representatives of Minnesota and Detroit. The Edmonton Oilers are also believed to be interested.”

Colorado A Better Team?

Following the Forsberg signing in Philly and the Foote signing in Columbus, many predictions for the Avs were down for the year even as far as saying they wouldnt make the playoffs for the first time in franchise history.

Who Says The Leafs Have No Kids?

The Toronto Maple Leafs have been branded an old, aging, over-the-hill team for years. They have also been a team that has been stereotyped as one that drafts poorly and one that never keeps it’s own. But that is certainly not the case this season. In an excellent development, their most recent game against the Washington Capitals boasted a lineup with 10 players drafted by the Leafs. Granted one of them was veteran Tie Domi but the rest certainly give much hope for this Leaf franchise in a state of transition. In the lineup, and drafted by the Leafs were:

Another Jacket Down

The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed injured defenseman Rostislav Klesla on injured reserve.



It All Begins With Bégin!

There is only one word to describe this man… UNBELIEVABLE. I don’t know how many people have been watching the Canadiens play, but he clearly is the X-FACTOR for the Habs. He blocks shots, hits, kills penalties, and scores last second goals…
