  • 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. 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
