It's hard to believe that in the early 1970s, over 95% of NHL players were Canadian in origin. This figure has been on the decline for the past 40+ years, and by 2015-16, the majority of NHL...
I thought with the CHL season starting, and with NHL camps starting to make cuts, it would be interesting to see what notable prospects have been sent back to the CHL, Europe or AHL camp. I got...
Jack Hughes Kaapo Kakko Kirby Dach Alex Newhook Anttoni Honka Dylan Cozens Vasili Podkolzin Victor Soderstrom Alex Turcotte Raphael Lavoie Matthew Boldy Trevor Zegras Cole Caufield Bowen Byram...
We all know that Al Iafrate does not like empty net goals. The story goes that Iafrate was in clear but elected to shoot the puck in the corner rather than into the open net and when asked about...
My top 10 list (not in a definitive order, but in a sort of order): Tikkanen-Gretzky-Kurri (Edmonton Oilers) Aka Finnish Sandwich. I don’t know if it was even the best of Gretzky’s lines, but a...
I know the series is over. I know we won, and the next series is coming up tonight, and this is mostly irrelevant now. But *something* happened on this play and it's been bugging me not...
PROSPECT RANKING WRITE-UP 1. LW Alexis Lafrenière Rimouski Océanic, QMJHL [6’1”. 192lbs. Born on October 11, 2001.] Strong and fast playmaker. Always creating chances whenever he’s on the ice....

I put this chart together using penalty data from nhl.com from the last 10 years to take a look at "game management" in the NHL. It's obviously a very basic analysis for a complicated (alleged)...
1. Alexis Lafreniere - The easiest ranking in my list. His blend of smarts, skill, speed, shot, and work-ethic is very rare. I don't think his potential is that much higher than the players than...
:wally: When I was a teenager growing up in Boston the Bruins were the laughing stock of the NHL as they failed to make the playoffs from the 1959-60 season thru 1966-67. Toronto at the same time...
Over the past 20 days, I've conducted a set of daily polls to roughly determine who HFBoards thought were the top 20 goaltending prospects in the NHL. The requirements to be included were the...
I find a problem with basically all studies here (including my own) in that they require a lot of work and time. There are usually many hours of boring research to have to be done, in order to...
Zadorov is a guy who isn't going to get talked about a lot since he is never going to be an offensive dynamo, but he has been stringing together a very solid season. He had a tough October, showed...
Shortly after Thanksgiving of last year, the Florida Panthers relieved head coach Gerard Gallant, and their then, highly unqualified general manager, Tom Rowe, stepped in as interim head coach....
Here are the top ten drafted prospects as voted on by members. 1. Elias Pettersson - Vancouver Canucks He's just a natural. Great smarts on both ends, awesome hand-eye and passing ability,...
These are my top 100 rankings. They are my own. I watch a lot of hockey. I read a lot(and I have certain people's opinions that I take into account), but these rankings are from my own...
I would like to share with you team rankings based on the ELO rating system. This is purely mathematical based on wins and losses. Each team has a score. That score increases or decreases based...
