EXACTLY What Will Happen in the Pacific Division.

October 3, 2018 - 8:21 PM ET

# 8. Arizona Coyotes I know the Coyotes were really strong down the stretch last year but I still feel this team is missing some key components.. I like a lot of their young talent and Raanta was as strong as anyone in goal over the last several months of the season.... Best Case: They contin...

What Will Happen in the Central....I think

October 4, 2018 - 8:56 AM ET

This division is truly a division without a bad team. Many people are putting the Blackhawks, a team with superstars and plenty of experience, at the bottom of this division again...This division had 6 teams with over 90 points last year. That's insane. To use the title "EXACTLY what will happen i...

Canadiens and Sharks STILL Talking...Teams aren't going to wait.

October 5, 2018 - 1:01 PM ET

Just a quick hit here... The Habs and Sharks have been discussing a deal for about a month now that would send some much needed scoring to Montreal. I always check in on the status of these sorts of discussions and many times they fizzle or at the least they fade into contingency plans for the f...

Team That Lost Tavares Shuts Out Team That Got Karlsson

October 9, 2018 - 9:49 AM ET

This is why hockey gambling is a fools game.... The Sharks got Karlsson. The Isles lost Tavares. So of course the Isles will win 4-0. Everyone always says this sport is so unpredictable. Nope. It is actually completely and ridiculously predictable. After all, this is the team sport w...

Back to the 80s? Liking all this scoring? My "Ek-streme Stat?"

October 11, 2018 - 12:10 PM ET

I am old enough to remember the 1987 Canada Cup. The Final of that tournament was Canada vs Russia in what I feel still to this day was the best hockey series EVER played. It was a best of three with each game ending up 6-5. The countries split the first two games and Canada won the third game an...

October 12, 2018 - 11:40 AM ET

Connor McDavid is the single most exciting player of this era. Hands down. The speed he plays the game at is second to none truly. AND he is hands down best player of this era and is it just 100% true that he worth more than any other player right now....right? Nope...of course not. Aus...

Attention NHL Players...Get it together.

October 14, 2018 - 12:35 PM ET

Attention NHL players....the total lack of respect for your fellow NHL player is getting truly out of hand....I will be back with a rumor blog, but I felt this deserved its own story because this whole situation is spiraling downward... Hockey fans, do the league and the future of this sport's viabi...

October 15, 2018 - 10:43 AM ET

Hearing a ton of stiff this morning surrounding Bobrovsky in Columbus... As I am sure you know Bob will be a UFA at year's end and like Panarin doesn't look like he is likely to stick around...although that can still change for both players.. However, I was told that St. Louis may be willing to g...
