Early Trophy Predictions: Norris Trophy

By Chris Nosek The hardware given to the best defender in the league can be one of the hardest to project because we are in a time where the top defensemen must also produce offensively instead of just being relied on to shut down the other teams best players. With Roman Josi taking the hardware home last season, he showed the incredible balance of defending while jumping up into the offense from the blueline. So will Josi be good enough

What’s the future for Lampard and Chelsea?

By Shawn Dennis Sitting at the 8th spot with a disappointing 29 points through 19 matches. Frank Lampard’s Chelsea squad has been the definition of disconcertment. Speculation of Lampard getting the boot has been the team’s topic of conversation lately, being the team he played 429 matches for and holds the clubs record for most goals all time, 211.  The Hall of Famer has always shown his emotions while playing on the field and has stayed true to his character

Early Trophy Predictions: Calder Trophy

By Chris Nosek The one trophy that can never be won by the same person a second time is also one of the most exciting to see won. Last year, Avalanche defenseman Cale Makar joined the likes of guys like Barzal, Matthews, Panarin, and MacKinnon by taking home the Calder Memorial Trophy and edging out Quinn Hughes and Dominik Kubalik. So, who will be the best rookie of this season? Vegas Favorites: Igor Shesterkin, Alexis Lafreniere, and Kirill Kaprizov lead

Early Trophy Predictions: William M. Jennings Trophy

By Chris Nosek Whenever goaltending is spoken about, it’s almost always about individual goaltenders – which is where the Vezina Trophy comes into play. The William Jennings Trophy doesn’t necessarily go to the team with the best goaltender, but instead to the team who’s goaltenders kept them able to compete in most games by allowing the fewest goals over the duration of the season. The large majority of the time, this award goes to a team with a solid pair

Early Trophy Predictions: Art Ross Trophy

By Chris Nosek After taking a look at who could take home the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy just the other day, the Art Ross Trophy will go to the player who scores the most points with both goals AND assists considered. So taking into consideration assists as well, who will score the most this season? Vegas Favorites: Connor McDavid, Nathan MacKinnon, and Leon Draisaitl are the odds on favorites in Vegas for the Art Ross and for damn good reason

Early NHL Predictions: Rocket Richard Trophy

By Chris Nosek Last season was just the third time since the Rocket Richard Trophy started being awarded to the league leading goal scorer in 1998-99 when it was shared between two players: Alex Ovechkin and David Pastrnak. Having won it now 9 times, sharing it only once, putting your money on anyone other than Ovechkin would seem crazy. Vegas Favorites: Auston Matthews, Alex Ovechkin, and Leon Draisaitl lead the Vegas odds to score the most goals this season, which

Who won the Harden deal?

By Shawn Dennis It’s about damn time. After months on end of waiting to see what the Houston Rockets were going to do with their now problematic point guard, who wanted nothing to do with being in Houston after 9 seasons of “giving the city all he has,” James Harden is now a member of the loaded Brooklyn Nets. I think we all saw this coming, but nobody wanted to believe it finally fell into fruition.  Before we dissect the

Looking ahead to the NBA Trade Deadline

By Shawn Dennis Most die-hard NBA fans love making predictions. Whether it’s the day before the trade deadline or not even 10 games into the season, fans become drawn into being a GM and fantasizing about decisions they’d make. Well, I’m definitely one of those fans and I’ve come up with a list of players and trades that some desperate and contending teams should consider as injuries, unexpected downfalls, and other factors have stirred up the league already.  I’ve included

Potential Expansion spots for the NBA

By Shawn Dennis NBA Commissioner Adam Silver was asked about the possibility of the league expanding a day prior to the start of the season on December 22, 2020, to which he responded, “it’s sort of the manifest destiny of the league that you expand at some point.” The addition of a new team is something that hasn’t been done since the Charlotte Bobcats (now Hornets) joined back in 2004. Keeping the league even and having a propionate number of
