Fearless NHL Stanley Cup Predictions for Round 1 by Jamie Gilcig 041218

Cornwall Ontario –   Yes, it’s that time!   Sadly the Habs didn’t make the playoffs because GM Marc Bergevin totally blew it this season and it seems that owner Geoff Molson might actually let him have a seventh kick at the can which is way too Rejean Houle scary. But I digress.   The Leafs and Jets… Continue reading Fearless NHL Stanley Cup Predictions for Round 1 by Jamie Gilcig 041218

4 Canadian Teams Left in Stanley Cup Hunt – by Jamie Gilcig 122817

Cornwall Ontario – As the pucks dropped after the Christmas break it’s becoming clearer which teams have a shot at going deep into the playoffs, which are simply bubble teams and which should be focusing on rebuilding or reloading. Rebuild – I’m not sure why Arizona is in the NHL any longer.   The league forcing… Continue reading 4 Canadian Teams Left in Stanley Cup Hunt – by Jamie Gilcig 122817

Free Agent Fizzle & Selling Kessel Cheap by Jamie Gilcig – JULY 2, 2015 #NHL #leafs

This seems to be the season the NHL cap really kicks in.   In a normal world trading Phil Kessel for a bag of pucks wouldn’t make any sense.  In the cap age….well. Brendan Shanahan and his team wanted to make a point and they traded away the team’s best player.  Nobody is irreplaceable, but… Continue reading Free Agent Fizzle & Selling Kessel Cheap by Jamie Gilcig – JULY 2, 2015 #NHL #leafs

CFN – Rule of thumb is the measure of a trade is who gets the best player.  With this being the cap age who the best player is can be quite relevant.  For example as I type this Max Pacioretty has more value than PK Subban because of his amazing dollar deal compared the to… Continue reading Jets or Sabres – Who Wins in the Evander Kane Deal by Jamie Gilcig – FEB 11, 2015

Will the Ottawa Sens or Winnipeg Jets Claim Mike Richards on Waivers by Jamie Gilcig JAN 26, 2015

CFN – We don’t want him. You take him.    The LA Kings have done something that only could happen in the day of the CAP age.   They have put Stanley Cup champ Mike Richards on waivers. Richards, has 5 years left on a contract at about $5.25M per year.  It’s a great deal… Continue reading Will the Ottawa Sens or Winnipeg Jets Claim Mike Richards on Waivers by Jamie Gilcig JAN 26, 2015

Which Canadian NHL Teams Will Improve in 2014/15? by Jamie Gilcig Habs Leafs Sens

CFN-   The Habs ended the pre-season with a trade.   Gone are Carey Price’s best bud Peter Budaj and Patrick Holland for Erik Tangradi.  It’s an interesting move.  With Tangradi already clearing waivers it gives Montreal some back up beef and helps their cap space as Tokarski’s salary was nearly 2/3 less than Budaj.… Continue reading Which Canadian NHL Teams Will Improve in 2014/15? by Jamie Gilcig Habs Leafs Sens
