  • 2008/09 Calgary Flames Season Preview

    2008/09 Calgary Flames Season Preview

    2. Calgary Flames – They finished third in the division last year, but they’re always a hard working team and added two forwards who will help put the puck in the net. Jarome Iginla highlights the Flames’ forwards.  Daymond Langkow is a very underrated center and Matthew Lombardi can skate like the wind.  The rest […]

  • 2008/09 Edmonton Oilers Season Preview

    2008/09 Edmonton Oilers Season Preview

    3. Edmonton Oilers –  A bit of a surprise pick here but they finished off last season on fire and their young players will be that much better after a year of experience.  After some smooth moves, by then GM Kevin Lowe, the Oilers have a very good group up front. Ales Hemsky, Shawn Horcoff, […]

  • 2008/09 Colorado Avalanche Season Preview

    2008/09 Colorado Avalanche Season Preview

    4. Colorado Avalanche – Probably a big surprise for most people having this team this low.  I like their forwards but their defence could be better and their goaltending could end up being the worst tandem in the league. Up front the Avalanche look good with Milan Hejduk, Ian Laperriere, Ryan Smyth, Paul Stastny, Marek […]

  • 2008/09 NHL Northwest Divison Standings Preview

    2008/09 NHL Northwest Divison Standings Preview

    Time to keep on truckin’ in the Western Conference. Today I’ll be taking a look at the teams in the highly competitive Northwest Division.  Lets take a look at where these teams will finish this year in my 2008 – 2009 Northwest Divison Standings Preview. 2008 – 2009 Northwest Divison Standings Preview Rank Team Rec […]

  • 2008/09 St. Louis Blues Season Preview

    2008/09 St. Louis Blues Season Preview

    5. St. Louis Blues Like Columbus, I’m a fan of what the Blues have done to rebuild the team and adding Doug Armstrong to the front office makes the future look that much brighter in St. Louis.  However, like the Blue Jackets, the Blues defence will be their achillies heels.  Their forward group is one […]

  • 2008/09 Columbus Blue Jackets Season Preview

    2008/09 Columbus Blue Jackets Season Preview

    4. Columbus Blue Jackets I really like what GM Scott Howson has done with this team.  However, I’m unsure of just how well this team will gel together so that’s why I have them ranked this low.  Their forward group is solid with Rick Nash, R.J. Umberger, Kristian Huselius, Derick Brassard, Fredrik Modin, Raffi Torres […]

  • 2008/09 Nashville Predators Season Preview

    2008/09 Nashville Predators Season Preview

    3. Nashville Predators Bit of a question mark with this team, mostly in net and up front.  Their forward group isn’t terrible, but no one really stands out. Jason Arnott, J.P. Dumont and Martin Erat headline the forwards.  David Legwand will be looking for a rebound season and both Steve Sullivan and Alexander Radulov are […]

  • 2008/09 Chicago Blackhawks Season Preview

    2008/09 Chicago Blackhawks Season Preview

     2. Chicago Blackhawks A young exciting team that took big strides last year. Their forward group took a bit of a hit losing both Robert Lang and the best faceoff man in the NHL Yannic Perreault, but they still have a young, fast and skilled group. Of course Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane are the […]

  • 2008/09 Detroit Red Wings Season Preview

    2008/09 Detroit Red Wings Season Preview

    1.  Detroit Red Wings Of course not a shock here.  Ken Holland did a great job building this team and it showed with their Stanley Cup victory last season.  Whats even more impressive is that he kept all the players together and added Marian Hossa for this season.  Their forwards are among the best in […]

  • 2008/09 NHL Central Divison Standings Preview

    2008/09 NHL Central Divison Standings Preview

    Since we’re a couple days away from the start of the NHL season I figure now is as good of time as any to start my preview of all the teams. To prevent massive articles I’ll be going by division each day. Instead of predicting each team’s record I’ll just be posting the teams in […]

  • Poggemon: Gotta Save’em All

    Poggemon: Gotta Save’em All

    Total Pro Sports – Back when Tuukka Rask was traded to the Boston Bruins during the 2006 draft for Andrew Raycroft it made most people shake their heads and wonder why the Leafs gave up so much for a one year wonder.  It then turned the spotlight onto the Leafs 3rd round pick in the […]

  • Erik Johnson Done for Season

    Erik Johnson Done for Season

    Total Pro Sports – Talented young defenseman Erik Johnson of the St. Louis Blues will be out for the entire season due to a Knee injury.  Team Doctors have confirmed that surgery will be needed, and he will not be back in time for the 2008 season.  Would you believe the accident happend when the […]

  • Tampa Bay Lightning Interested In Mats Sundin

    Tampa Bay Lightning Interested In Mats Sundin

    Total Pro Sports – This I think this turning into a big joke now.  “Mats, just pick a team and get this saga over with.  You know you want to win a cup and in Toronto your gonna have a hard time doing so.  Just sign with a cup contender and move on with your […]

  • Chris Chelios Signs A One Year Deal

    Chris Chelios Signs A One Year Deal

    This guy just keeps on going he reminds me of an energizer bunny.  I guess when your in tip top shape as Chris you can play till your 50.  Chelios is known in the off season to train with a stationary bike in the sauna on a daily basis with a trainer present. The Detroit Red […]

  • NHL Rumors, Who’s On Their Way Out?

    NHL Rumors, Who’s On Their Way Out?

    August is usually the slowest time of the year for rumors, but there have been a few flying around the last few days that I think we should talk about. Bryan McCabe waives his NMC to go to Florida I don’t doubt for a second that he has waived it, however there is a clause […]
