My Atlantic Preview is coming up in the next hour...but this is breaking news.. Ryan Poehling, a player the Habs were highly counting on to add scoring has not made the team and was just sent down to Laval. Fans shouldn't freak out here. He will be back VERY SOON. Ryan suffered a concussion in...

October 2, 2019 - 11:10 AM ET

Breaking: The Leafs are scratching Jason Spezza tonight against the Sens...his old team...Spezza, who came to Toronto on a discount contract to play at home, just skated with the scratches in the morning skate... Besides the truly disrespectful way that Babcock is acting here, we are really seein...

Welcome to Live Blogging Prediction Frenzy! I will be posting 1 team at a time, but adding to the blog every couple of minutes. Happy Hockey DAY! EXACTLY what will happen in The Metropolitan Division… #8 Carolina Hurricanes The Canes were magic in a bottle last season, but a lot of tha...

EXACTLY What will Happen in the Central Division. Disagree?

October 3, 2019 - 12:53 PM ET

Picking the Central is just ridiculous....I am not confident with ANY of this...except my top team. Here goes: #7 Minnesota Wild The Wild would be battling for a top 3 spot in any other division, and I truly expect the Wild to be back in the playoff hunt next season. I really believe in Bi...

Blues extend Schenn for 8 years, Pietro? Fri's Buzz

October 4, 2019 - 10:12 AM ET

I still have my Pacific Division Picks coming up, BUT we have breaking news. The Blues have extended Brayden Schenn for 8 years and $52M . This, along with the Justin Faulk signing, puts the Blues into a definite cap crunch when it comes to Pietrangelo this summer... What are your thoughts o...

EXACTLY What will Happen in the Pacific Division. You Won't Agree...

October 4, 2019 - 7:31 PM ET

Good evening hockey world. Better late than never, but here is my prediction for the Pacific Division. The interesting thing about this division this year is it has basically flipped itself on its head from a decade ago. Which brings us to California... #8. The Los Angeles Kings. This is, o...

Jets and NYI talking early season trade (e4)

October 5, 2019 - 11:10 AM ET

Sources tell me the Islanders and Jets are working on “The first major trade of the season” and that the Isles scouted the Jets heavily in their opening games against the Rangers and The Devils. The trade may involve Nick Ehlers. Stay tuned....

Jets Players Working Byfuglien...holding up possible trade...

October 6, 2019 - 1:24 PM ET

Talking to sources this week, a few Jets players have told me the team will be patient, and that the players are texting with Byfuglien because they care about him and think he is better off playing hockey. Its a work in progress... The Jets may be patient, but that has not stopped Chevy from pu...

Only 3 games in, could some of these surprise teams be real?

October 7, 2019 - 10:53 AM ET

It is crazy early of course, and it is very important to remember how teams who don't make the playoffs tend to come out of the gates fully ablaze.... But when you look at most predictions from a week ago you will find many of the teams the experts were putting out of the playoffs have gone undef...

Who Takes a Shot at Ho-Sang? Plus ICYMI Spezza & Foligno's Magic; Tues Buzz

October 8, 2019 - 10:50 AM ET

This has been brewing for years now, but Josh Ho-Sang is going to be leaving the Islanders...the only difference now is he has requested a trade...Will anyone out there take a chance on Josh? After all, Ho-Sang has had chances on the Island and it simply hasn't worked. His cap hit is only 874K...

Sharks Sign Patrick Marleau

October 8, 2019 - 8:47 PM ET

Good move. We all knew he wouldn’t play anywhere else....

Can you beat James Neal for the BEST off-season move? Wed's Buzz

October 9, 2019 - 11:58 AM ET

There were a ton of huge moves last summer. Big trades and MILLIONS of dollars thrown around to sign UFAs and RFAs. But more often than not, the best move turns out to be one made under the radar...and so far this year....that is ABSOLUTELY the case. Around 8:30 pm on July 19th the Oilers...

Boyle, Phaneuf Rumors...and Is Carter Hart the Answer in Philly?

October 10, 2019 - 10:26 AM ET

Bob Mckenzie stated yesterday that there is large interest in Brian Boyle and implied a team is out there ready to make the deal if they can free up the right amount of space/contracts. I am told that team appears to be the Pittsburgh Penguins and it makes sense...The Penguins are always watchi...

Greatest Ever Hockey Tournament ,#2 Habs All-time vs #31 Vegas

October 11, 2019 - 11:36 AM ET

It's time to get to this! Last New Years Eve I had you all rank the teams from 1-31 based on the following criteria: "What would be the better team if they could ice any of the players that once played for them in their prime? If a player played for them, but NOT in their prime, you could inc...

Isles believe they can get Patrik Laine, but should they move Dobson?

October 12, 2019 - 1:16 PM ET

Patrick Laine is like a tech stock. Huge upside/potential disaster. I am told the Jets are still quietly listening to “potential trade concepts” after extending Laine for a very short term deal. And the Islanders are talking the most at this point. But the Jets are at the point know t...

Are the Oilers for Real? + Habsfan1198's Special Team Lines. Vegas Best

October 13, 2019 - 12:40 PM ET

Yes indeed, the Edmonton Oilers are 5-0. Ok, so maybe this is a little bragging while I still can, but having picked Edmonton to win this division, I am quite pleased with the 5-0 start. Yes, you can look at the schedule they have played so far and say...it's easy for them to go 5-0...but thi...
