Leafs Look to Burke to Make Tough Calls

kadri_4121Five games into the preseason, and the Toronto Maple Leafs have already had their share of ups and downs. The team that finished 29th last season has looked to the Dion Phaneuf and Fredrik Sjostrom trade made on January 21st to turn their lackluster performance around. From the trade until the end of the season, the leafs had the 7th best record in the Eastern Conference. Since then, they have (re)signed a number of dominating players.

So far in this preseason, we have gotten mixed signals from the Leafs. We’ve seen both optimistic play as well as signs of old habits.

Now, more than half way through the preseason games, the Leafs must start making the hard decisions. The first of which will be what to do with Nazem Kadri. The 19 year old London Knights player Continue reading

It’s Hockey Season!

NHLlogoThe NHL preseason has begun.

There are a couple of things to be remember in the weeks leading up to the first regular season game on October 7th.

The first is that preseason games do not influence who makes the playoff or directly affect a team’s Stanley Cup run.

The second, these games are a great opportunity to showcase new talent, watch players up from the minors or recently added to the roster, and see the coaches and GMs test out lines, positions, special teams, and game strategy.

A perfect example of the experiments that come in preseason games was seen by the split team strategy in the Vancouver Canucks vs. Calgary Flames on September 21st.

Most teams have only played one or two games, but already the predictions are starting to fly. Continue reading
