Correcting the NHL Divisional Alignment
Posted by theknightswhosay

Iíll start out with a disclaimer that Iím not exactly an avid hockey fan, although I do enjoy the playoffs and I start following more intently around April. Itís just not a sport I grew up around or have attended much.

I was inspired to write this just because I happened to grab a sports page yesterday and look at the standings. I just never saw the point of getting excited about a sport 6 months before it crowned a champion. I mostly write the most about college football, and you might have noticed I donít have all that...Read More

should be interesting. In case you missed the breaking news today, Roberto Luongo is going home. The Vancouver Canucks finally moved the Canadian Olympian after all of the drama last season as Luongo and minor-league forward Steve Anthony will head south to Sunrise, Florida in exchange for goaltender Jacob Markstrom and center Shawn Matthias. If you're thinking one step ahead, we're thinking the same way because Luongo will join Tim Thomas as the netminders for the Panthers - the same man who he had a war of words with during the 2011 Stanley Cup Final.

Yesterday, the New York Rangers, traded their captain, Ryan Callahan to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Martin St. Louis...

The last Rangers captain to be traded was Mark Messier (the rights for) in 2003 to the San Jose Sharks for a 4th Rd pick...That pick became...Ryan Callahan...Just an interesting fact for ya...

The Buffalo Sabres have traded goalie Ryan Miller and forward Steve Ott to the St. Louis Blues for goalie Jaroslav Halak, forward Chris Stewart, prospect William Carrier, a first-round draft pick in 2015 and a third-round draft pick in 2016.... Everyone knew Miller was getting moved...no surprise there...And clearly based off of all they gave up, the Blues are in it to win it, now...Not a bad grab for the Sabres and their ever rebuilding team.

So Hockey already has it's first big trade of the season...The Buffalo Sabres traded star goal scorer Thomas Vanek to the New York Islanders for Matt Moulson, a 2014 1st round pick and a 2015 2nd round pick...


Sure, Vanek has the label of sniper...Yes, he has had two 40 goal seasons and two 30 goal seasons...But guess what, Moulson has three 30 goal seasons under his belt...Moulson, just like Vanek is 29 years old, and both are slated to be free agents at the end of the season...

So the Islanders...Read More
