  1. You raised some good points, but I think that Marleau still has a lot of skills and can contribute to Toronto. He can contribute on and off the field. I trust the management that they will find a way also to sign JVR and the rest of the four young players that Toronto have. I am sure that they are obligated to the rebuild and will do what Toronto needs. I hope that it will prove a smart move that we will benefit from this move and I put my trust in the manegement, and I can't wait for the start of the season.
  2. You are right that Calgary is more balanced than Edmonton. I think that Edmonton has better weapons on offense and one of the best duos in the league. I believe that also in the goaltender the have the edge over Calgary. In my opinion, Mcdavid and Draisaitil can carry the team, and they have a great supporting crew. I don't disparage Calgary, and it's abilities, but if I consider all the roster and the talent so, in my opinion, Edmonton is better. Mainly because Mcdavid, Draisaitil, Lucic and the rest of the supporting crew but it will be a close race, and hopefully both of them wi
  3. In this post, I want to talk about the Western Conference which is the Conference of Edmonton and Calgary. The Western Conference is a powerful conference that has a lot of great and powerful teams which are contenders for winning the Stanley Cup. I believe that the entertaining matches will be from this conference again next season. In my opinion, this Conference is stronger than the eastern Conference, and you could see it with the playoffs series last season which was, in my opinion, more entertaining. Even though that in the end Pittsburgh from the Eastern Conference wo
  4. I think that Edmonton did the right thing in securing Mcdavid and Driasitl for the next few year and in my opinion, they deserve the money that they got. I think that they were one of the best duos in the league and by securing them, Edmonton acquired the backbone of a great team. In my opinion, now Edmonton can go and sign the supporting crew that will make Edmonton a great team in the next years. Also, they got a great chance of winning the Stanley Cup in the next few years. I believe that we can expect great things from Edmonton in the next few years with Mcdavid and
  5. In this post, I would like to talk about how I see the eastern conference which Toronto is part of it. As I was reading the writers and saw the trades that the teams did and also the players that they lost to Vegas team. I think that the conference is more open than it was last year. Don't get me wrong; I still believe that Pittsburgh, Washington, Rangers, and Columbus have amazing teams and I predict that they will be at the top of the conference and I won't be surprised if they will be in a separate group far from the rest of the conference. These teams have a caliber roster that
  6. I think that you have a good point regards Hunwick, but in my opinion, Polak is a good defensive player that did an excellent job in the defensive zone last year. Both of them are not a very good on offense, but we got plenty of firepower on the offensive aspect. I also want Toronto to score more and have more possession of the puck. In my opinion, the main problem is the possession and the defense that Toronto addressed this summer. I think that they still need to improve in these areas, but I like Lou and Babcock signing and the direction that the team is going. I trust and have
  7. In this post, I would like to talk about the Sedin brothers who are amazing players that play in Vancouver. The Sedin brothers are from Sweden, and they are fantastic players who are one of the best players in the NHL. All the years they played in Vancouver and reached a lot of achievements with the team. Which the highlight was in 2010 when the reached to the Stanley Cup and lost to Boston in seven games. I think that they have great skills and also modesty which in my opinion, is a significant quality that all the great players have. Also, they have this great strive to b
  8. I think that this is not too bad acquisition even though that in my opinion, Fleury is a better goalie Niemi. I think that Pittsburgh should have protected him and shouldn't leave him to expose. They lost him to Vegas team because of this. In my opinion, Fleury and Murray were a great duo, and both of them were perfect for Pittsburgh and did a fantastic job on the net. I think that Niemi is a good goalie but not as good as Fleury. In my opinion, because of the loss of Fleury so it's a good acquisition, but it shouldn't have got to this if Pittsburgh has protected Fleury
  9. In this post, I want to talk about the signings that Toronto has made during the summer and the addition of the three veteran players. I already spoke of the Patrick Marleau signings in Toronto so that I will focus on the other signings. Toronto has extended the contract of the core of the young talented players as the extended Zach Hyman and Tylor Bozak which in my opinion is very smart move, but in Bozak case, the extension is too long and too much. They had great success last year, and in my mind, this is an incredible core of young players that will lead Toronto to success in t
  10. In this blog, I want to talk about the Calgary Flames that has a core of young players and emerging as a great team in the western conference. Calgary like Edmonton and Toronto have a core of young players that lead the team. Like Edmonton they are a complete team, they have a solid goaltender and defense which is what Toronto is lacking. Also, they have a great offensive weapon that can score a lot and can come from behind in the game. They can also explode on the other team like they did a couple of times, when it happens it's like they are in a different zone. I th
  11. I agree and think that Phaneuf is a great defenseman which, block shot and play hard every game. I believe that he is contrary to Karlsson but one of the top defenseman in the league. The fact that Phaneuf didn't succeed in Toronto is not his fault. He had a bad team around him as Kessel had. The system in Toronto was in different position and now with Lou and Babcock is a different story. I think that Ottawa should keep him and he completes Karlsson, and they are a great defenseman that helps Ottawa a lot in stabilizing the defense. In my opinion, both of them are franchise player
  12. I agree about Pittsburgh should get to the Conference finals, and she will probably win it. I don't think that there is a team that in the eastern conference that can beat Pittsburgh in a series. I believe that that next year Toronto will have a strong team with the signings that they made which it add up to the great core of young talents which I think will make the next step. I believe that Toronto will give a fight for the second place in their division and will battle with Ottawa and Boston. I hope that they won't be out of the playoff or in a wild card spot and I will be right
  13. I don't think that Kessel would have been good for Toronto and I think that Marleau is a better fit for this young team. From what read in the media and interviews with players, I believe that Marleau is more the leader that Toronto needs. I think that Marleau can bring a lot of experience and leadership that the young players benefit from this. In my opinion, Kessel also would have wanted more money, and the cost would have been higher. I like the path that Toronto is going on with the rebuilding process and glad to see the progress. I believe that the management and Babcock will
  14. I was reading a couple of articles about in the last couple of months of the participation of NHL players in the Olympics. I was reading one article last week about that which I think it will be their decision. In the article, they commissioner of the league that said they wouldn't participate and also, that the teams are not preparing for an alternative schedule. In my opinion, it's a wrong decision for the league, and I don't like it. I believe that the Olympics will only do for the league. The exposure of this game to the rest of the world is important for the league, and this h
  15. In this post, I will talk about Vancouver that is a Canadian team that was at the top of the league until this year. They reached the Finals seven years ago but lost to Boston in seven games. Vancouver has been building itself on a roster that based on the Sundin brothers, they are great players and having an incredible career. They are from Sweden that emerges to be an excellent hockey team that is in the top of the world stage. They achieved a lot of milestones in their careers and had high numbers on their resume, they will go to the hall of fame and will have their numbers taking out af
