Nightly Scrap: Thomas, Halak continue to dominate

Tyler Seguin scored the second goal of the evening as the Boston Bruins defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-0. For Phil Kessel, the homecoming had to be humbling.  The young right wing accounted for six of  20 shots but like every one of his teammates failed to put one past Tim Thomas.  Patrice Bergeron scored…

Jokinen leaves pre-season game

Olli Jokinen left the Calgary Flames’ pre-season matchup with the Phoenix Coyotes last night in the middle of the second period with an undisclosed mid-body injury.  Temporarily stepping in for Jokinen between Niklas Hagman and Jarome Iginla was Alex Tanguay but don’t expect that to be a long term solution. If Jokinen misses any extended…

Calgary Flames General Manager Darryl Sutter went out and signed Olli Jokinen for his second tour explaining he will score more goals with more offensive creativity surrounding him. He went out and signed Alex Tanguay to be that playmaker for the Joker and probably thought at one point Jarome Iginla would make his way into…

Fantasy Season in Review: Calgary Flames

Offensive Corps: The captain Jarome Iginla led the team in scoring for the ninth straight season but did not display the same scoring tenacity he showed earlier in his career.  His 69 points were his lowest point totals since the lockout began and at age 33, one has to wonder if this will be a…

Fantasy Season in Review: Toronto Maple Leafs

Offensive Corps: Although he missed the first twelve games of the season, the offense revolved around right wing Phil Kessel. At first, critics thought the Leafs lacked an appropriate playmaking center to compliment Brian Burke’s shiny new toy but at season’s end Matt Stajan and Tyler Bozak proved to be just good enough to keep…

Under Review: Armageddon Edition

In light of Sunday’s bombastic pair of trades between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Calgary Flames/Anaheim Ducks (and a decidedly light week on other ‘big issue’ NHL news), it struck me as necessary to dissect the re-landscaping nature of the deals pulled by Burkie and Co. The facts: on Sunday morning, Brian Burke announced…
