It is no secret that the Canadian Hockey League is the foremost breeding ground for NHL talent. In the 2005 NHL Entry draft, 17 players from the CHL were taken in the 1st round alone. In the top ten draft selections, 7 came from the CHL including the top prospect in the world, Sidney Crosby. Thankfully, the NHL and hockey fans will see more great talent to come from this very entertaining league.
So guys, I’m sure plenty of you have seen the my NHL ad that was on NHL.com the other day.
Some like it, some hate it. But I highly doubt those of you that hate it were saying to yourself, “man, I can’t believe it, that woman is a sex object, I’m calling my local government represenative! I’m steemed!”
Well, here we are.
Owen Nolan’s disputed contract buyout should finally go through within the next few weeks making him an unrestricted free agent around the time the season starts.
Despite his health and age, Nolan could still be a strong winger that a number of teams should be looking at, and (when hes finally bought out) he’ll be the last of the big name free agents.
According to nhl.com, left winger Alexander Semin has not reported to Washington’s training camp despite being under contract. What is strange though, is that the Russian media is reporting that Semin would likely remain in Russia for all year.
Eric Lindros’s season will be an interesting one to follow, without a doubt, he’s saying he can play without getting hurt, he’s finally playing for the hometown Leafs, and he’s had a great training camp/preseason so far. What really is his potential, 100 pts? 40 goals? 50 goals? MVP? Olympic team? An all star appearance? A Stanley Cup? Well… aside from the cup, and fifty goals, he’s done it all. The cup he’s lost by flukes a time or two, and the fifty goals… well… he once scored 47 in 65 games, is it really his fault?
After more than a year of waiting that included practically no news about hockey players – now the most hardcore of hockey fans must prepare to draft the best of the best for our respective fantasy leagues.
According to the Fourth period Adam Deadmarsh has decided to retire from the NHL. Deadmarsh has been suffering from post concussion syndrome since 2002.
According to msnbc.msn.com Chris Osgood will miss the start of the season with a groin injury.
Leaving the Red Wings with Legace has their goaltender.
Here is the article:
There were a lot of big free agent signings in the Northwest and a lot of big names moving out of Colorado this summer. They have a much different look than the team that could last year ice three very potent offensive lines and had one of the better defensive cores in the NHL. With the dramatic loses and with little in the way of replacements it will be interesting to see just how much the mighty will fall this year.
Those of you familiar with baseball statistics may be aware of Pythagorean wins. If you hate math, skip to the next paragraph. The idea is as follows: if a team scores as many goals as they let in, chances are they should have exactly a .500 record. If they score more goals than they let in, their winning percentage should move higher according to some mathematical relationship. Bill James determined that the relationship for baseball is runs scored squared divided by runs scored squared less runs allowed squared.
Just minutes ago, the NHL debuted its advertising plan for the upcoming season entitled ‘my NHL’. Heres what its about.
With all that flaming from the Northeast division, its time to look to the western side of things, so lets take a look at the Northwest on an unbias view…
