Big Decisions Loom for Bruins

By Kevin O’Keefe (In collaboration with Chris Nosek) Just days after being eliminated by the New York  Islanders in 6 games, Don Sweeney is already hard at work trying to decide the future outlook of the Bruins. In addition to  players like Tuukka Rask, Taylor Hall and David Krejci (to name a few) becoming unrestricted free agents on July 28th, the team will also lose a player to the Seattle Kraken when they have their expansion draft later this summer.

Rask shines in first round series win

By Kevin O’Keefe Whether you love him or hate him, there is no denying that Tuukka Rask was up to the task in Boston’s first round matchup against the Washington Capitals. The Bruins’ veteran goaltender led the way finishing up the series with a 1.81 GAA and a .941 SV% in his 5 starts. After just one game, which saw the Capitals win in overtime off of a bad bounce through the five-hole of Rask, fans were immediately calling for

NHL Whiffs on Safety Issues

By Chris Nosek “We view this as a dereliction of duty by NHL Head of Player Safety, George Parros, and believe he is unfit to continue in his current role.” – New York Rangers As head of the Department of Player Safety, George Parros has one top priority – the overall safety and well-being of the PLAYERS….not one player, not some players… ALL of them. As despicable as Tom Wilson has been at times on the ice, he is still

Top 5 NHL Rookie Skaters not named Kaprizov

By Kevin O’Keefe When you hear the term “rookie” mentioned in the NHL this year, it is commonly attached to Minnesota’s budding star Kirill Kaprizov. Rightfully so, as he has seamlessly transitioned from tearing up the KHL to injecting himself as a dynamic player in the league in only his first season. While Kaprizov, from day one, has been the odds-on favorite to run away with the Calder, there are plenty of exciting players this rookie class has to offer

The Most Heartbreaking Trades in Boston History

By Shawn Dennis If there’s one thing that New Englanders love more than iced coffee in the middle of January, it’s their sports. Once an athlete on any Boston team shows a glimpse of being legendary, has that gritty side, or plays above the rest, Bostonians flood the stores and buy all the apparel associated with them.  There’s too many players to use as examples. From Tom Brady to Larry Bird to David Ortiz to Patrice Bergeron, die hard New

Early Trophy Predictions: Stanley Cup

By Chris Nosek Last, but certainly not least, everyone wants to know, who’s going to take home the hardest trophy to win in all of sports – the Stanley Cup? Obviously this is a season in which anything can happen at any time and any player could miss a game with little to no notice. Universally, no one is hoping for any game – especially a playoff series deciding game – to have any of the best players miss out

Early Trophy Predictions: Hart Trophy

By Chris Nosek Last season, Leon Draisaitl walked away with the Hart Trophy after posting 110 points for the Edmonton Oilers. Who will be deemed the most valuable to their team for the 2020-21 season? Vegas Favorites: Connor McDavid, Nathan MacKinnon, and Auston Matthews are the favorites in Vegas and rightly so – they will all likely be high up on the scoring list when the season is over. All three are poised to have fantastic seasons and help get

Early Trophy Predictions: Vezina Trophy

By Chris Nosek It was determined last season (as I mentioned on Puck Off many times) that Connor Hellebuyck of the Winnipeg Jets was the best goaltender in the National Hockey League – he even beat out Boston’s Tuukka Rask (and Dillon’s favorite, Andrei Vasilevskiy) for the Vezina Trophy. After starting in 52 games last season for Winnipeg, it’s clear the Jets will look to ride their netminder during the course of the shortened season as well, but will he
