A Look at the Canes’ Blue Line Heading into the Offseason

James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports Will there be a lot of turnover for the Hurricanes’ defense this offseason? Likely not. The Carolina Hurricanes have grown to be synonymous with defense, and that won’t change this offseason. On the surface, having upwards of $28 million invested into the blue line would spell some roster turnover to use that money elsewhere, but it doesn’t have to. Today, we’re taking a look at what the Canes have on the back end and what, if anything, will change from season to season. The Core Jaccob Slavin (26), Brett Pesce (25), Dougie Hamilton (27) The...

How The Blackhawks Matched Up Against The Central Division Teams

The Chicago Blackhawks finished their 2019-20 regular season with a record of 32-30-8. While this record was good enough for the team to make the qualifiers, it would not have given them a playoff spot during a regular season. Winning the games against your own division is critical to making the playoffs.

Who’s the single most valuable player to the Flyers’ franchise right now?

Who’s the single most valuable player to the Flyers’ franchise right now?

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via As fruitless rumors circulated about one team moving its best player, we got to wondering who the single most valuable piece currently is in the Flyers’ franchise. On Monday afternoon, before the Lightning won the Stanley Cup and ended the very long and very weird 2019-20 NHL season, semi-retired hockey insider and TSN personality Bob McKenzie very casually dropped the following note on our Twitter timelines: Imagine my surprise when I started making calls today and heard Jack Eichel trade rumours, including unverified chatter he may have at some point...

3 Takeaways From the Stars Loss in Game 6 of the Cup Final

It took a while for the Stars to find their mojo during […] The post 3 Takeaways From the Stars Loss in Game 6 of the Cup Final appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Tuesday Links: So Far Away, So Close

Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports Mike Heika reflects on the limits of the possible in an impossible season. Plus, free agency waits for no one, teams looking to rebuild, and more. The Dallas Stars rode as far as they could, but they arrived on the doorstep with nothing left. That Game 6 loss in the Stanley Cup Final may hurt too much – at least for Stars fans – to actively partake in luxuries like perspective and rational evaluation. Especially when the ultimate prize was close enough to touch. But in this year of all impossible years, with the ill-starred injuries and unlikely...

Chuck Fletcher’s internal options to improve Flyers

Chuck Fletcher’s internal options to improve Flyers

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ A look at who’s ready to step up. Internal improvements are a staple of every NHL franchise, and for the Flyers, almost all will have come through Lehigh Valley. In recent years we have seen Oskar Lindblom, Travis Sanheim, and Philippe Myers, among others, graduate from the AHL and become the key contributors that they are today. The question is, who’s next? The Phantoms had a … rough … season to put it lightly, finishing with a record of 24-28-10. If by some chance the AHL would have been able to adopt the NHL’s return to play format, they still would...

Top 10 Undersized NHL Players

Often deemed too small by NHL scouts and executives, undersized players frequently have a harder time breaking into the National Hockey League. Many are overlooked and go undrafted since they do not fit the traditional mould of a professional hockey player. However, smaller players have found their way into the NHL and made history. Smaller […] The post Top 10 Undersized NHL Players appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

2019-20 Predators Player Report Cards: Dan Hamhuis

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ Hamhuis has retired, but we look at his last NHL season anyway. Season Overview Inconsistent team play, a mid-season coaching change, the struggling third defensive pairing merry-go-round, a late-season injury, and a pandemic pause in play were the story of veteran defender Dan Hamhuis’ 16th season in the NHL. Not much in the 2019-2020 season was easy for Hamhuis. How did he handle it all? Let’s take a look. The Good Perhaps somewhat lost in the hot mess that was the Predators’ third line defenders shuffle is the fact that Dan Hamhuis is good...

Photo by Minas Panagiotakis/ The Chicoutimi Saguenéens center is one of the most exciting offensive players in the draft but has a concerning injury history. The Second City Hockey staff will profile 10 players leading up to the 2020 NHL Draft, which will start Oct. 6, the Blackhawks could have the opportunity to select at No. 17 overall. Hendrix Lapierre will have missed 11 months of hockey when the QMJHL season starts.
