NHL Predictions 10/27

Season Record (Winning Teams): 52-38 Season Record (Full Predictions) : 3-87 Missed yesterday's light schedule, but went 9 (W) and 6 (L) with predicting the Kings game DEAD ON on Saturday night. Let's jump into tonight: (focus on Crystal ball) ------------------------------------------------------------------- Phoenix at New York Rangers 7PM The Rangers need a bounce back game like Britney Spears needs more exposure. The losses to the Habs and Sharks have taken a bite out of the once hot Rangers. The Coyotes, who started the season with some fantastic play, have lost their most recent game to the Kings and are now 6-3 on the season, but still can not be counted out as they ar...

NHL top 50 - Dustin Style

Let me know what you guys think! #1 Alex Ovechkin, LW, Was. – Introduction needed? Will score 55+ goals. #2 Evgeni Malkin, C/W, Pit. – Best first and second picks ever in NHL history (2004 draft)? #3 Sidney Crosby, C, Pit. – Probably the best 3rd overall pick in fantasy sports. Is health an issue? #4 Ryan Getzlaf, C, Ana. – Five category stud, complete package, centering one of the best lines in hockey. #5 Jarome Iginla, RW, Cal. – 319 goals in the last nine seasons. Does everything right. #6 Pavel Datsyuk, C, Det. – Mr. Consistant – the last four years – 87, 87, 97, 97 points.. What’s next? #7 Ilya Kovalchuk, LW, Atl. – Only 14 goals less than Iginla in two-fu...

NHL Predictions 10/24

Season Record (Winning Teams): 43-32 Season Record (Full Predictions) : 2-73 Perfect with the teams last night makes tonight a fun night to blog about predictions wise. So here we go: --------------------------------------------------------------- Toronto at Vancouver 7 PM Joey MacDonald will be making the start in goal for the win less Leafs this evening as they travel to Vancouver for the "Wellwood Cup" game. Although Vancouver has been haunted by the injury bug to start this season, they still have some amazing talent, and with Roberto Luongo in net, it helps them stay in every game every night they play. Tonight, should be another notch in the loss column for the Leafs. ...

NHL Predictions 10/23

Season Record (Winning Teams): 40-32 Season Record (Full Predictions) : 2-70 Last night was a night I would like to forget, as my Crystal Ball seemed to be in opposite mode (or blurry for that matter). Jumping right into tonight: ----------------------------------------------------------------- Florida at Pittsburgh 7:30 PM Though, most will think that Pittsburgh is due for a loss, it is doubtful that happens tonight with the Penguins hosting the Panthers in Pittsburgh. Brent Johnson will give Marc-Andre Fleury the night off, but that doesn't mean a guaranteed win for Florida. Florida needs to get the offense going, and it's something that has been a big issue this season so...

NHL Predictions 10/22

Season Record (Winning Teams): 37-26 Season Record (Full Predictions) : 2-61 Splits-ville last night, going 3 and 3 in the Win/Loss column for my predictions. Somewhat of a strange night, and congrats to the New York Islanders on getting their first Win of the season. That leaves only the Leafs without a win thus far. Onto tonight: ------------------------------------------------------------------- New Jersey at New York Rangers 7PM If there is one team that loves to play the Devils, and two players especially, it is the New York Rangers, Henrik Lundqvist and Sean Avery. Tonight, at MSG, the Rangers will play host to their Atlantic Division rival New Jersey Devils. Th...

NHL Predictions 10/21

Season Record (Winning Teams): 34-23 Season Record (Full Predictions) : 2-55 Tonight is the night of identity crisis for most of the clubs doing battle. The schedule has a fine set up for this evening with a lot of teams searching for answers. Let's get to the games: --------------------------------------------------------------- Nashville at Boston 7PM Two teams that are searching for identities do battle tonight in bean town. With the loss of Milan Lucic, and most recently, Marc Savard, the entire top line for the Boston Bruins no longer exists (at the moment). For Nashville, the Arnott injury is huge, as they lack offense as it is and now with Arnott out, will continue to ...

NHL Predictions 10/20

Season Record (Winning Teams): 32-22 Season Record (Full Predictions) : 2-52 Ok, after a bit of a hiatus, I am back and ready to hit this in full stride. A light schedule tonight means a light predictions set, however, do not be fooled. Tonight is the night I start things to make my records look a lot better. Also, big note at the end of these predictions! ----------------------------------------------------------- St. Louis at Pittsburgh 7PM The Penguins are off to a start that they have not had in years, while the Blues are still attempting to find consistency. With one of the best offenses (especially with secondary scoring stepping up for the Penguins), the Blues will h...

NHL Predictions 10/14

Season Record (Winning Teams): 27-22 Season Record (Full Predictions) : 2-47 I've missed a few days being a bit under the weather, and with the fact that it was my birthday the other day (yay, turning 31 is so fantastic :insert sarcasm here:) made it a bit more difficult to get back on track after a long weekend. However, I am back now, and jumping right into tonight's contests. ------------------------------------------------------------------- Los Angeles at New York Rangers 7PM A battle of two teams that are off to very hot starts takes place tonight in the big city otherwise known as Manhattan. Erik Ersberg get's the nod for the Kings in what will be his first start of the...

The return of NHL hockey to Quebec City takes one giant leap forward

According to a report on RDS.ca, hockey is closer than ever to making a return to Quebec City today. The French Canadian authority on sporting news and events in Quebec is reporting that an announcement is slated to be made late next week (Thursday or Friday) by the mayor of Quebec City, Regis Lebaume, as well as former president of the Quebec Nordiques, Marcel Aubut, that a new arena will soon begin construction in Quebec's capital city. The project will cost upwards of $400 million, however, both the federal and provincial governments will be solicited for $175 million a piece. According to the RDS report, both Lebaume and Aubut had a meeting with Gary Bettman on Friday w...
