2015-2016 Season Preview: Ottawa Senators

Few will soon forget the late-season run of the Ottawa Senators, the one that saw them go 23-4-4 down the stretch to finish with a 43-26-13 record for 2014-2015. This was due in large part to the arrival of head coach Dave Cameron, who took over from Paul MacLean after the latter was canned on […]

New York, New York: The Next Generation of Ranger Forwards

It’s no secret that the New York Rangers boast one of the deepest groups of forwards in the NHL, but what’s really exciting is what’s on tap for the next generation. Our overview stuck to the basics, like Rick Nash and his potential for scoring 40 goals or Derek Stepan and his new deal. But […]

2015-2016 Season Preview: New York Rangers

The New York Rangers like a lot about their chances going into the 2015-2016 season and for good reason. They were one win away from going back to the Stanley Cup Final last season and three wins away from winning a Cup in 2014, solidifying their role as a top contender for the ultimate prize. […]

2015-2016 Season Preview: New York Islanders

If there’s a team to get excited about for 2015-2016, it’s the New York Islanders. They finished the 2014-2015 season with a 47-28-7 record and fought hard against the Washington Capitals in the first round of the post-season, eventually losing in seven games.

2015-2016 Season Preview: New Jersey Devils

After finishing with a 32-36-14 record in the regular season, the New Jersey Devils knew it was time for some big changes. They only managed to score 176 goals last season, with only the Arizona Coyotes and Buffalo Sabres scoring less. The Devils allowed 209 goals, which was their saving grace, but they weren’t able […]

Summer Wind: Shea Weber Trade Talk Persists

As detailed in our look at the Nashville Predators, there’s a lot to like about this team’s defence. Shea Weber, Roman Josi, Seth Jones, Ryan Ellis, Barret Jackman, and Mattias Ekholm are all game-changing blueliners. Naturally, such an embarrassment of riches on the back end has led to speculation and talk that one big piece […]

2015-2016 Season Preview: Nashville Predators

The Nashville Predators are relatively happy with the team they have, which is why they didn’t do much of anything in the off-season. They finished 2014-2015 with a 47-25-10 record, good for second in the Central Division, and they made the playoffs after a two year lull. They scored 226 goals and allowed 202, plus […]

2015-2016 Season Preview: Montreal Canadiens

The Montreal Canadiens enjoyed a wonderful regular season in 2014-2015, pulling off a 50-22-10 record to lead the Atlantic Division. They were second in the Eastern Conference, three points behind the New York Rangers. They scored 214 goals and allowed a meagre 184 goals, making them the stingiest team in the National Hockey League. This […]

2015-2016 Season Preview: Minnesota Wild

The Minnesota Wild closed the books on another season with a dazzling run to the post-season, finishing with a 46-28-8 record that featured a dynamite 28-9-3 run after mid-January. Prior to their run, they were sitting at 18-19-5 on January 13 and looked well out of a playoff spot. Thanks to their big finish, Minnesota […]
