Hot off the Presses

I will report news and info in this blog. I will also post periodic editorials about recent news stories or thoughts around the league.

  4. Off-Season Winners and Losers

    This is my list of the off-season winners and losers. And I am basing this information on the draft and free agency to date.


    What can I say that is not already obvious? Adding Suter and Parise makes them a dangerous team all of a sudden. One of the problems I saw with Minnesota was goal scoring and I think Zach Parise complements the Wild perfectly. It will be interesting to see if he plays with Dany Heatley or if they try to spread the offense ...
