Who Will Win the Pacific Division in 2018?

1. Edmonton Let’s get this out of the way right now. The Oilers are going to improve dramatically without having to improve their roster. Why is that, you ask and how on Earth does that make any sense. For starts, this NHL offseason did not see a single move in which one particular NHL team […]

Who will win the Central Division in 2018?

1. Nashville It was nothing short of a magical season for the Nashville Predators and hopes are that 2017-18 is an improvement on that. The real question is whether those said hopes can actually be a reality. There is a strong argument that the Predators should have won the Stanley Cup last year. That was […]

Who will win the Atlantic Division in 2018?

1. Toronto Beyond Edmonton, I can’t think of any other NHL team more excited about this season more than the Toronto Maple Leafs (I’m sorry….Trohntah Maypa cannot).

How did Pittsburgh Repeat as Stanley Cup Champions?

Let’s be honest, Penguins fans. You were getting very nervous after Game 4 wondering if your team was going to win it all again. The worrying was understandable. Nashville was the healthier and livelier team. Even if Matt Murray was going to bounce back from his two dismal performances in Games 3 and 4, it […]

Day 57 of Stanley Quips: A Bridge[stone Arena] Too Far?

And within the span of two games, the tables have turned in this Stanley Cup finals. Honestly, I haven’t found this series to be any more enticing as the NBA finals. Sure, all the shenanigans from Nashville’s side have been beautiful to watch and a true breath of fresh air to see. But say what […]
