The Rangers haven’t been able to replace Brad Richards

We’ve spent a lot of time bemoaning the loss of Anton Stralman, whose departure has coincided with a drastic drop in possession numbers. We’ve also talked about the impact losing Brian Boyle has had on the penalty kill and on faceoffs. Heck, we’ve even reminisced about Raphael Diaz. But one key veteran has been quickly forgotten […] The post The Rangers haven’t been able...

Will the Blackhawks powerplay be any different?

Over the summer, the Blackhawks certainly had needs that needed addressing: finding a bonafide 2nd line center,  adding defensive depth, and shedding salary cap. And, in those regards, the Blackhawks have certainly succeeded. Brad Richards could be a fine signing for the time being, as the Blackhawks try to buy time for prospect, Teuvo Teravainen. In terms of defensive depth, the...

The Blackhawks Still Have Work To Do

This is still the preseason, but the Blackhawks special teams unit continues to fail on the power play and is currently sitting at 0-17. Is there cause for concern? Or is it too early to tell? What’s Going On? During the first week of training camp the Blackhawks didn’t go through a single special teams drill, which would of course reflect in the poor or sloppy play on either...

Rangers Depth Just Fine

The primary reason most pundits predict a season less grand than the one resulting in last year’s run to the Stanley Cup Final is the offseason loss of key depth players. Leaving New York over the summer as free agents were forwards Brian Boyle, Brad Richards and Benoit Pouliot along with blue liner Anton Stralman. […]

Miller Looking “Quicker & Sharper” at Informals

It’s no mystery that the loss of players such as Beniot Pouliot, Brad Richards and Brian Boyle leaves a huge void in the Rangers line-up this season that could very likely be filled by young, unestablished rookies. One such player is JT Miller. The organization is hoping the 21-year old forward is ready to take the next step in his career this season. And from the look of things...

Beware of Brad Richards

As a pessimist by the very definition I must admit that on July 1st I let my inner-optimist get the best of me upon discovering the Blackhawks had signed veteran center Brad Richards. Nearly half a day had passed since free agency officially opened and just about every name transcribed on my free agent wish list had been scratched off by this point in time. To make matters even worse...
