  • 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

    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. Lets take a look at where these teams will finish this year in my 2008-09 NHL Atlantic Divison Standings Preview 2008-09 NHL Atlantic Divison Standings Preview

  • 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 […]

  • 2008/09 NHL Southeast Divison Standings Preview

    2008/09 NHL Southeast Divison Standings Preview

    Day 4 brings us to the Southeast Divison.  With the Western Conference done it’s time to shift to the East.  I’ll start off with what looks to be the weakest division in both the East and the entire NHL. Lets take a look at where these teams will finish this year in my 2008-09 NHL Southeast […]

  • They Could Hab It All

    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 […]

    Top 5 Fantasy Hockey Goalies

    Total Pro Sports – If you don’t have a good goalie in net for your 2008-2009 fantasy hockey team them you might as well fold your team and ask your commissioner for your money back.  Most fantasy poolies don’t realize how important a goalie can be to your fantasy hockey team. If your in a fantasy league where goalies […]

  • 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 […]
