Islanders have tough decision when it comes to draft

The New York Islanders and namely general manager Garth Snow took a pretty good beating from fans and media in the wake of the trade deadline. A lot of that has to do with the return for Thomas Vanek, who the team shipped to the Montreal Canadiens for prospect Sebastian Collberg and a second-round pick. Compounding the perceived sub-par return for the top trade chip on the market...

NHL Trade Deadline: Winners and Losers

Losers New York Islanders: Anyone who is a fan of the NHL knows that this team has been one of the most mismanaged teams in the NHL over the past decade. This year is no different.  The Isles traded away Matt Moulson along with a first round pick in 2014 and a second round pick in 2015. The bombshell came when Thomas Vanek said he didn’t want to re-sign with the Isles.  The...

Bruins' keep roster intact at trade deadline; rent a couple of blue liners

The Boston Bruins apparently are happy with their roster as-is.And why shouldn't they be? They can roll four productive lines and have a seemingly endless supply of young defensemen at the AHL level to support one of the youngest blue lines in the league at the NHL level - save greybeard Zdeno Chara - which is apparently nerve-wracking to many fans and particularly the media...

What Did Garth Snow Do?

from Katie Strang of ESPN New York, Snow sent Vanek, a two-time 40-goal scorer and perhaps the most coveted forward on the rental market plus a conditional fifth-round pick, to Montreal for what appears to be a pretty meager return. The Islanders acquired a conditional second-round pick in 2014 and Swedish prospect Sebastian Collberg in the deal, which pales in comparison...

Marc Bergevin: wanted for grand larceny

What a trade by the Montreal Canadiens. Tomas Vanek and a 5th for Sebastian Collberg and a 2nd. Or, another way, a 40 goal scorer in his prime for a Habs B prospect and a pick. Who knows how this went down - maybe they were after him for a while, maybe they swept in at the last minute - but regardless, the Montreal Canadiens do very, very well in this deal.  The Habs also acquired...

Adam French: Making the Swedish World Junior Squad: Forwards

The Swedes will have the benefit of 7 returning forwards, luckily for them several are stars. This offense will need to do some heavy lifting to make up for the loss of their two best defensemen to injury. Looking at the group, I'd say they'll be fine.
