What to do with Ilya Kovalchuk?

By Mike Luciano (@MikeLuci) If you’ve recently come to realize that superstar left wing Ilya Kovalchuk has struggled offensively, then you’ve been living under a rock all this time. Kovalchuk’s contract dilemma from two summers ago was well-documented and presently, many are calling his career commitment to the New Jersey Devils a condemnation on both […]

East or West: the Curse of the Midwestern Team

By Rhys Richards (@RREsq) The NHL Board of Governors began two days of meetings today in Pebble Beach, California with realignment as the hot button issue. When the Atlanta Thrashers became the second generation of the Winnipeg Jets this off-season, realignment became an issue that had to be addressed before next season. As it stands, […]

Is Ryan Miller Just Part of an Ongoing Pattern?

By Mike Luciano (@MikeLuci) Ryan Miller’s sluggish start to the 2011-2012 NHL season, his subsequent concussion, and Jhonas Enroth’s formidable play has made me put the longterm projection of the Sabres’ goaltending situation into perspective. In a perfect world, Ryan Miller will retire a Sabre and go down as arguably the greatest goaltender in franchise […]

Now you can say it though, as the Toronto Maple Leafs are falling in the standings for the first time this season. The […]

Read, Flyers Use Big First Period to Top Coyotes, 4-2

  By David Strehle (@David_Strehle) Hockey can be a funny game sometimes, taking predominant trends and throwing them right out the window. Such was the case Saturday night, as rookie Matt Read and the Philadelphia Flyers used a blistering first period to overpower the Phoenix Coyotes at Jobing.com Arena by a score of 4-2. Coming […]

Pens/Canes Set to Clash in Raleigh

The Pittsburgh Penguins and Carolina Hurricanes couldn’t be more different at this point of the season. The “haves” versus the “have-nots” if you will. The Pens (who currently boast the best record in the eastern conference) and the Canes (just three points ahead of the NHL-worst Columbus Blue Jackets) are fourteen points apart in the […]

In that case, the team probably calls up a different player from its minor league affiliate and life goes on with just a […]
