Questions For Khan

Q: Do you think the Wings will trade Dylan Larkin for Tyler Myers? I hope not. I like Myers' size and right shot but I hope they don't sacrifice the future for him. A: My guess is they won't part with Larkin in their efforts to acquire Myers. They're committed to building through the draft. They relinquished a young center (Calle Jarnkrok) last season because...

Avoiding The Head Shots

from Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun, Guess how many players had been suspended this season for dirty checks or headshots going into Thursday’s games around the NHL. The answer: Zero. That’s right. Zilch, zip, nada. No players had been forced to watch games for heinous acts on the ice, including in the pre-season. It’s something to be thankful for, seeing...

Morning Line - Ken Hitchcock

“We’re not playing the right way. We made a heck of a run here playing the right way, no odd-man rushes, don’t force offense, don’t give the puck away and make hope-for plays offensively. We’ve had a shoot-first mentality that allowed us to be top five in the league in scoring goals. But we don’t want to play the right way. We want to play a different game right...

It’s often said that the mentality of a professional athlete and that of a poker player go hand in hand. That winning mentality. The never say die attitude.

Arizona Goaltending

It is still early in the season, but one result which could be very significant is the Arizona Coyotes goaltending.  It was expected that Mike Smith would be the successful starter and Devan Dubnyk would be the lesser used backup.  Smith had been a successful NHL goalie in the past.  He was the number three goalie on the 2014 Canadian Olympic Team.  Although he did not play in...

2 POINTS

After a disappointing loss in Montreal we absolutely have to bounce back with a bona fide 2 point win. The idea here is to take total advantage of playing against a team that played last night. That is something we haven't been able to do. Tonight we face the Penguins. Malkin is back and the Pens are playing a back to back, after a loss to the Flyers at Home. They will be looking...
