NHL Week in Review (March 1-7)

The NHL trade deadline has come and gone as one of the most exciting days in the NHL calendar became a lot less exciting. The trade deadline this year lacked any huge moves that changed a team for the better or for the worst. There were plenty of moments to talk about including Chris Stewart learning he was traded to Buffalo on live television and a note written to the Minnesota Wild by Jordan Leopold’s daughter asking to get her dad back, a wish that was granted.

NHL Week in Review (February 15-21)

The ugly side of the NHL arose once again this week as another death took a former player too soon. Steve Montador is the type of player that seems to fit the bill in these cases as a player that was never exceptionally great but good enough to play in the NHL. He was not necessarily a tough guy but he was a tough defenceman that was never at the top of the scoring charts but had a great stay-at-home game that many defenceman don’t have in this age.

2014-15 NHL Preview: Atlantic Division

The Atlantic Division is a mix of some of the best teams and some of the worst teams in the NHL as the division is one of the hardest to figure out. On one end of the spectrum lies the Boston Bruins, Tampa Bay Lightning, and Montreal Canadiens. These three teams have proven to be some of the most talented teams in the league over the last few years. The Bruins are the team that leads the pack with one of the best combinations of skill and toughness that make them a true contender in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Meanwhile the Lightning and Canadiens have been built with skill in mind as both are loaded with offensive talent although the toughness has suffered on both of the teams.

NHL Week in Review (Oct. 30-Nov. 5)

A goalie is an essential part to e hockey teams as they are the last line of defence and can easily take over a game. There has rarely been a Stanley Cup Champion without a very good performance by a goalie. Whether it is Tim Thomas last year with the Bruins or Patrick Roy with the Canadiens and the Avalanche the common denominator has been a great goalie. This has become a big aspect to many teams as a lot of teams continue to look for goalies that can guide them to the Stanley Cup.
