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: Chris’ Picks

By Chris Nosek After taking a look at who is favored by everyone else, and a couple longshot candidates, who could win each trophy the question remains as to who is actually set right now to take home the hardware?

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: Presidents Trophy

By Chris Nosek After the season was cut short last year, it was decided that the first place Bruins should be awarded the Presidents’ Trophy for having the most accumulated points over the season. This was the third straight season Boston hit at least 100 points for the season. So, having finished in the top 5 in points for each of the past 5 seasons, will the Bruins be able to take the regular season title again? With the realigned

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.

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

Early Trophy Predictions: Selke Trophy

By Chris Nosek Named after the former Montreal and Detroit general manager, this award is granted to the forward who plays the defensive aspect of their game the best.

O’Reilly won the award in
