  • 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, […]

  • 2008/09 Carolina Hurricanes Season Preview

    2008/09 Carolina Hurricanes Season Preview

    3. Carolina Hurricanes Season Preview The Hurricanes pushed Washington for the division last year but finished in 2nd and failed to make the playoffs. I expect them to miss the playoffs again this year and end up 3rd in the division. Carolina has a good foundation at forward with Eric Staal, Rod Brind’Amour and the […]

  • 2008/09 Florida Panthers Season Preview

    2008/09 Florida Panthers Season Preview

    4.  Florida Panthers Season Preview Bit of a drop after finishing 3rd last year, but that has more to do with the improved Lightning than the moves made by the Panthers. Florida will be leaning heavily on young guys Nathan Horton, Stephen Weiss and Rostislav Olesz to put the puck in the net for them […]

  • 2008/09 Atlanta Thrashers Season Preview

    2008/09 Atlanta Thrashers Season Preview

    5.  Atlanta Thrashers Season Preview A bit of a shock here but after losing key players in Marian Hossa and Mark Recchi matched with their goaltending issues I don’t see this team being very competitive this year. Ilya Kovalchuk is the only name that catches your eye when it comes to Atlanta’s forwards.  Colby Armstrong […]

    They Could Hab It All

    This time last year, most experts didn’t even have them making the playoffs, but after an Eastern Conference championship and a plethora of youth, the Montreal Canadians are one of the favorites to contend for Lord Stanley. It’s been 15 years since Les Habitant have hoisted what is arguably the most difficult prize in all […]

  • 2008/09 San Jose Sharks Season Preview

    2008/09 San Jose Sharks Season Preview

    1.  San Jose Sharks No surprise here. Despite their disappointing playoff run last season the Sharks still have a very talented roster and should challenge Detroit for the Presidents Trophy. San Jose’s forwards are lead by “Jumbo Joe” Joe Thornton. Milan Michalek, Ryan Clowe, Joe Pavelski and young Devin Setoguchi are all solid options for […]

    2008/09 Dallas Stars Season Preview

    2. Dallas Stars They surprised a lot of people with their defensive play last year and getting Richards was a bold but great move.  With the experience their young defence received last year they should be in line for another solid season.  Even with Niklas Hagman and Jussi Jokinen gone the Stars still have a […]

    2008/09 Anaheim Ducks Season Preview

    3. Anaheim Ducks Not a terrible season last year for the Ducks, but with a disappointing playoffs and two of their big free agent signings from a year ago gone, they’ll be looking to have a better year this year. But will they? Ryan Getzlaf leads the Ducks forwards followed by Corey Perry, Chris Kunitz, […]
