Oilers Still Sticking With The Ever-Hilarious “Swarm Defense”

You may remember earlier this month when the Edmonton Oilers gave us one of the funnier moments of the NHL preseason when their “swarm defense” tactics allowed a WIIIIIIDE open Nick Bonino to tee one up right in front of Edmonton’s net, scoring a short-handed goal. Well, it appears that the Oilers didn’t really learned much from the preseason…or, you know, the past handful...

Are The Vancouver Canucks A Playoff Team?

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province,  ... it can reasonably be said the Canucks have changed the atmosphere around the team and improved the bottom half of their lineup. As for their frontliners, it just doesn’t seem possible that Henrik and Daniel Sedin will be as unproductive as they were last season, just as it seems possible that one of Nick Bonino, Zack Kassian...

Sedins' twin engine remains Canucks’ power

There are always a number of constants with any NHL team as they pass from season to season, and with the Vancouver Canucks it seems it’s their dependence upon the Sedin twins. Certainly there is talk of Nick Bonino centering the second line. There will be some very gifted young players trying to break into a lineup full of veterans with one-way contracts. There are also a couple...

Questions Facing The Anaheim Ducks

from Curtis Zupke at, How much will Kesler help close the gap between Anaheim and the Kings and Chicago Blackhawks? – Kesler is adept in the faceoff circle and will help the Ducks' 22nd-ranked power play. When healthy, he is good for 10-15 power-play goals per season and is also a shorthanded threat. Defensively, Kesler has won the Selke Trophy (and was a finalist...

Nick Bonino as happy to arrive in Vancouver as Kesler is to leave

Ryan Kesler called last season painful and knew it was time for change. Nick Bonino is calling next season hopeful and knows versatility is his calling card. In a perfect world, Bonino is probably a third-line NHL centre. But it’s not a perfect world in Vancouver and the Canucks are spinning into another orbit by clearing salary cap space and setting themselves up to hopefully...

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Ducks haven't been known as a power play team all season but the inconsistencies in special teams play has been magnified after Game 1. After letting the Kings' Alec Martinez score on the power play, the Ducks did nothing in their four opportunities with a man-advantage. The team's 23.3 percent conversion rate is good but not great.
