  • 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

    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 […]

  • 2008/09 Dallas Stars Season Preview

    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

    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, […]

  • 2008/09 Phoenix Coyotes Season Preview

    2008/09 Phoenix Coyotes Season Preview

    4. Phoenix Coyotes Along with Chicago, Phoenix is a young exciting team and I think they’ll create a lot of noise in both the division and conference this year. Upfront Phoenix has a very underrated and skilled group. Peter Mueller, Martin Hanzal and Kyle Turris lead the charge of young skilled forwards.  Shane Doan provides […]

  • 2008/09 Los Angeles Kings Season Preview

    2008/09 Los Angeles Kings Season Preview

     5. Los Angeles Kings Even though I have them ranked last, they do have a good young team. The Kings forwards are lead by the young talented trio of Alexander Frolov, Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown. Derek Armstrong, Kyle Calder, Jarret Stoll and Michal Handzus will look to provide the secondary scoring. Young guys like […]
