NY Islanders Fall To The Philadelphia Flyers 2-1

Isles fall to the Flyers in Philly, leaving them in the 8th playoff spot in the Eastern Conference

Instant Impact

Chemistry is formed over time in the NHL. Playing with guys and getting to know their tendencies around specifics spots on the ice is crucial to success. Knowing where a guy likes to shoot, where he feels most comfortable handling the puck, and what his defensive zone breakouts consist of allow teammates to generate consistently effective plays without having blatantly obvious situations dictate play. This chemistry is typically formed over the course of the season, but something can be said for trade acquisitions who develop these tendencies early and provide an instant impact.

In Pittsburgh, they were lucky to see the type of production that they have seen from their trade acquisi...

Jarome Iginla: Like No Other

Jarome Iginla is a Penguin now.

it's bizarre to say the least to see him in anything but red, but the time had come for both the team and him to split ways.

Here is my story of Iginla

Islanders vs. Penguins: Preview 3/30/13

The Islanders face the Pittsburgh Penguins this afternoon for the 5th and final time this season. After winning the first matchup, the Isles fell to the Pens in the three following games.

The Islanders come into today's 1pm matinee game at Energy Consol Centre tied for 8th place in the Eastern Conference with the New York Rangers. Thanks to a huge shootout victory against the Flyers on Thursday night, New York is currently on their best win streak of the season at 3.

Examining The Acquisitions

When a team finds success in the NHL on a consistent basis, it is very difficult for GM’s to tinker with said success in order to find greater success. It is the easiest explanation as to how the NHL has witnessed such playoff parity. In the modern cap era it has become even more difficult to place a team on the ice that has a continued shot at a championship. So with all of this in perspective, is it possible that we see a Stanley Cup champion this season that has also won the cup within the past five seasons?

It is the question that seemingly everyone in the NHL is waiting to see. With Pittsburgh and Chicago pushing the boundaries of greatness, the NHL might finally witness ...

We Got'em

Well, the Pittsburgh Penguins have officially acquired Jarome Iginla from the Calgary Flames. In exchange for the veteran’s experience the Penguins have traded their first round selection in the 2013 entry level draft and unsigned college prospects Ben Hanowski and Kenny Agostino.

Amid rumors and credited reporting, Jarome Iginla had initially been on his way to Boston. After a tough loss to the Canadiens, Boston fans were rejoicing in emphatic jubilance to have such a revered player help fix whatever ail their team. Twitter erupted with numerous reports on how the trade was won and how Boston has pulled into a virtual (paper champion) tie with the Pittsburgh Penguins after th...

Jarome Iginla no longer a Calgary Flame

The Calgary Flames have traded their beloved captain Jarome Iginla, a look at the man behind the stats.

Game Preview: Flames vs Chicago Blackhawks

The Flames head back on the road tonight, a place they have not been too fond of as of late, currently riding a 9-game win-less streak (0-8-1). Breaking the streak will not come easy heading into Chicago to face the league’s best team. The Blackhawks will finish off rare back-to-back home games after losing last night, 5-4 to the defending champs Los Angeles Kings.

Hit the Deck, Cannon Ball Comin’ Through!

Using a Pittsburgh Pirates home run call is about all I can say right about now, because in my mind, Ray Shero has hit a home run.

On Sunday March 24th, Shero sent prized prospect Joe Morrow and a 5th round draft pick to the Dallas Stars for a third round draft pick and veteran winger Brenden Morrow. The 34 year old former captain of the Dallas Stars is going to be bringing a few key skill sets to Pittsburgh, but none more important than that of leadership and stability.

The gritty winger will see time all over the ice for Pittsburgh. He is expected to play with Malkin and Neal, as well as time on Sutter’s wing with M...

Jarome Iginla: Trade Looming

Is Jarome's time coming to an end in Calgary?

According to reports he has given a list of four teams that he would accept a trade to: Chicago, LA, Pittsburgh, and Boston.

Will he or won't he?

I think what we can all agree on is that we can't blame him for going after his Stanley Cup dream!
