Kirill Kaprizov has been one of the best forwards for the Minnesota Wild this season after finally making his NHL debut. Victor Rask has arguably just played his best string of games since he stepped on the ice for the Wild following the one-for-one trade that sent Nino Niederreiter to the Carolina Hurricanes. Mats Zuccarello
The Florida Panthers played back-to-back games against the Detroit Red Wings on Friday and Saturday night, splitting them with one win and one loss. The team looked very different between the two, as in game one, they tormented their weaker opponents, while in the second game, they got outplayed heavily for the majority of the
The majority of this season’s Florida Panthers team is full of new players who weren’t with the club during the 2019-20 campaign, so I decided to take a look at the players who left, and see how they are doing with their new clubs. Mike Hoffman Hoffman was one of the “big ticket” free agents
The New Jersey Devils’ good start to the season continued this past week, as they managed to go to 2-1 with wins against the New York Rangers and New York Islanders. That moved them to 3-1-1 on the season and has them in third place in the East Division. Collecting points in four of your
The New Jersey Devils may be off to a 2-1-1 start, but they’ve had less than ideal luck when it comes to personnel up front. Nico Hischier remains out as he rehabs an injury he suffered while training in Switzerland during the offseason. Jesper Bratt’s contract dispute didn’t get settled until Jan. 10, and because he was still
The Florida Panthers have struggled to find a consistent top defensive pairing since the franchise’s glory days in the late 1990s. However, after a season together in 2019-20, the team seems to have finally found the right duo in MacKenzie Weeger and Aaron Ekblad heading into this season. Here is what this means going forward.
Last season did not go well for the Florida Panthers. The team had high expectations after a big offseason, yet still had the same struggles as always. Now, after another busy offseason, they will try to avoid the same disappointment. Here are the players who need to improve most if the Panthers want to move
It’s officially Halloween and though it might look different this year — much like how the 2019-20 NHL season and playoffs were different because of COVID-19 — one thing that remains the same is that people like a good scare. Unless you’re somebody who works in advanced stats or analytics, and if that is the
The New Jersey Devils have had an active offseason, making upgrades on offense, defense, and in net. But even with the new additions, they still have $18 million in available cap space. They have to re-sign restricted free agents Jesper Bratt and Mackenzie Blackwood, which should take up around $6-7 million in additional cap space.
The New Jersey Devils had a handful of prospects play in the NHL in 2019-20. The results were mixed for some and better for others. One player who falls into the latter category is Joey Anderson. He only played in 18 games this season but totaled seven points (four goals, three assists), which comes out
Expectations were quite high for New Jersey Devils’ winger Jesper Bratt entering the season. He only played in 51 games in his second pro campaign in 2018-19 but produced at a 52-point over 82 games. The hope was he’d continue building on that step forward in 2019-20, but that’s not how things started out. He
I promised myself I would not write bad stuff about the Montreal Canadiens. Mired in a terrible stretch of hockey with only three wins in their last 10 games, it’s easy to join the mob of angry fans. But I want to abstain for now. So, I deleted the piece I started about general manager
It’s been quite the odd start to the 2019-20 season for New Jersey Devils’ winger Taylor Hall. He’s slated to become an unrestricted free agent in July 2020. And there are no indications he’s ready to sign a lucrative, long-term extension with the team, a process that seems it’ll drag on for the foreseeable future. Ottawa Senators
The New Jersey Devils could not have gotten off to a worse start to the 2019-20 season. They had a 0-4-2 record across their first six games and lost them in some unimaginable ways. They blew multiple multi-goal leads, including a four-goal lead against the Winnipeg Jets on opening night. It’s not like the Devils were the
Special teams are a very important aspect for any NHL team aspiring to make the playoffs. This is why the power play has been a hot topic for the Montreal Canadiens since having the dubious distinction of icing one of the worst power plays during the 2018-19 season. To make matters worse, to start this
