  • 2008/09 Montreal Canadiens Season Preview

    2008/09 Montreal Canadiens Season Preview

    1.  Montreal Canadiens Season Preview Probably could have guessed this one after just reading the title. They finished first in the division and conference last year and with the injuries to Whitney and Gonchar in Pittsburgh I expect the same thing this year. What’s not to like about their forwards? Alex Kovalev, Saku Koivu, Andrei […]

  • 2008/09 Ottawa Senators Season Preview

    2008/09 Ottawa Senators Season Preview

    2.  Ottawa Senators Season Preview After getting off to a hot start they took a big nose dive in the second half of last season and even ran a possible risk of missing the playoffs. I see them finishing stronger this year. The Sens forwards are lead by the three amigos: Daniel Alfredsson, Dany Heatley […]

  • 2008/09 Boston Bruins Season Preview

    2008/09 Boston Bruins Season Preview

    3.  Boston Bruins Season Preview Not much has been said of the Bruins this year, but I don’t think their team is all that bad. Up front their top 6 forwards have some promise with Marc Savard, Patrice Bergeron, Phil Kessel, Michael Ryder and Marco Sturm. Milan Lucic will look to improve from a good […]

  • 2008/09 Buffalo Sabres Season Preview

    2008/09 Buffalo Sabres Season Preview

    4.  Buffalo Sabres Season Preview Just like they have for the past couple seasons the Sabres are a young, fast and skilled team. Only question is how big of a factor will injuries be. Thomas Vanek headlines this forward group and has developed some chemistry with Derek Roy over the past two seasons. Jason Pominville […]

  • 2008/09 Toronto Maple Leafs Season Preview

    2008/09 Toronto Maple Leafs Season Preview

    5.  Toronto Maple Leafs Season Preview Lets just say there’s a reason why Mats Sundin didn’t rush back to play with this team. The Leafs biggest weakness is up front. Nik Antropov, Jason Blake, Jiri Tlusty and Alexei Ponikarovsky make up part of the top 6. Newly acquired Mikhail Grabovski and Niklas Hagman will add […]

  • 2008/09 NHL Northeast Divison Standings Preview

    2008/09 NHL Northeast Divison Standings Preview

    For my final post on the division previews I finish off with the Northeast Division in my preview. Once considered the hardest division in the NHL, the Northeast isn’t as competitive now due to the drop off of both the Toronto Maple Leafs and teh Buffalo Sabres. Lets take a look at where these teams will finish […]

  • 2008/09 Philadelphia Flyers Season Preview

    2008/09 Philadelphia Flyers Season Preview

    1.  Philadelphia Flyers Season Preview They made huge steps last year and I’m looking for even bigger steps this year. The Flyers have one of the best forward groups in the league. Daniel Briere, Mike Richards, Jeff Carter, Joffrey Lupul, Scottie Upshall, Mike Knuble, Scott Hartnell and Steve Downie are all great/good forwards that make […]

  • 2008/09 New York Rangers Season Preview

    2008/09 New York Rangers Season Preview

    2.  New York Rangers Season Preview They had a solid season last year making it to the second round of the playoffs and I see them doing the same this year, maybe even better. Losing both Jaromir Jagr and Brendan Shanahan would really hurt most teams, but the Rangers still have a good group of […]

  • 2008/09 Pittsburgh Penguins Season Preview

    2008/09 Pittsburgh Penguins Season Preview

    3.  Pittsburgh Penguins Season Preview Big drop off here for the Penguins. They have some tough injuries to deal with right now and I think it’ll end up hurting them more than people will think. The Pens forwards are lead by arguably the best duo in the league with Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Petr […]

  • 2008/09 New Jersey Devils Season Preview

    2008/09 New Jersey Devils Season Preview

    4.  New Jersey Devils Season Preview Even with Brodeur in net I don’t see this team making a lot of noise, especially in this tough division. The Devils forward group is pretty solid with Patrik Elias, Brian Gionta, Zach Parise and Brian Rolston making up parts of the top 6. Dainius Zubrus, David Clarkson, Jamie […]

  • 2008/09 New York Islanders Season Preview

    2008/09 New York Islanders Season Preview

    5.  New York Islanders Season Preview Not much can be said about this team. They’ll be battling with Toronto, Los Angeles and Atlanta for the #1 overall pick in this year’s entry draft. Just like the Leafs, the Islanders will be looking to get their offence from a group of players rather than just two […]

    2008/09 NHL Atlantic Divison Standings Preview

    It’s now time to move onto the Atlantic Division. The toughest division in the East and arguably the entire NHL. My standings may be a surprise to everyone.

  • 2008/09 Washington Capitals Season Preview

    2008/09 Washington Capitals Season Preview

    1.  Washington Capitals Season Preview Not a shocker here. They finished first last year and I expect them to do it again this year. Although they could get some good competition from Tampa once they gel together. The Capitals have arguably the best player in the game with Alexander Ovechkin and he developed some great […]

  • 2008/09 Tampa Bay Lightning Season Preview

    2008/09 Tampa Bay Lightning Season Preview

    2.  Tampa Bay Lightning Season Preview A big jump for this team and I see them being this year’s Philadelphia Flyers. A majority of their moves this offseason were to upgrade the forwards and they did just that. Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St.Louis of course headline the group with the underrated Vaclav Prospal. Jussi Jokinen, […]
