With salary cap constraints and a roster full of to-be free agents, the Chicago Blackhawks are Cup or Bust this postseason.

With recent acquisitions made by the Winnipeg Jets, the Western Conference should be on high alert that the Jets are are coming. And coming fast.  #NHL   #NHLJets

All-Star weekend gives a much needed break to all 30 NHL teams at the midpoint of the season. Some teams certainly need it more than others. #NHL   #Leafs   #Pens   #FLApanthers   #LAKings

After being on the "hot seat" in mid-January, coach Mike Yeo and the Minnesota Wild have rattled off an impressive 22-8-2 record, and are on the cusp of another Western conference playoff appearance. And you wanted to fire Yeo....

Are the Detroit Red Wings pretenders or contenders? After winning 9 of 10 games, they have dropped 3 straight going into the teams west coast trip. The next seven games on the road could make or break the Red Wings postseason hopes.

Jimmy Hayes has not only exceeded my expectations, but could be the first Florida Panther in five years to score 30 goals in a single season. For that I owe him an apology.

The New York Islanders are "the real deal" hockey fans. And the scary part is they haven't even played their best hockey yet. #NYI   #Islanders   #NHL

Is the championship window closing on the Chicago Blackhawks? With cap concerns & high dollar contracts, the Hawks have some tough decisions ahead of them.
