2018-2019 Player Reviews: Miikka Salomäki

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports “The Ox” was doing what oxen do best before his season was cut short. Miikka Salomäki is kind of like comfort food: you know what you’re getting when you order it at the Cracker Barrel, you know exactly what to expect, and you don’t have to take the risk of an unknown food possibly being better offensively because you know you’ve got ol’ number 20 out there takin’ up space for about ten minutes a night. Season In Review Okay, okay, maybe I’m being a little hard on Salomäki. I mean, he’s not supposed to be Filip Forsberg or...

Tuesday’s Dump & Chase: Labor of Love

Photo by Bill Wippert/NHLI via When I chose Tuesday for my D&C, I never realized that so many holidays are on Monday. I’m taking Friday off!

2018-2019 Player Reviews: Filip Forsberg

Photo by Kevin Hoffman/ Gonna take our Fors to the Old Town Road Our little baby Scoresberg is growing up... *sniffs* He just turned 25, but it seems like #9 has been here for a decade now, hasn’t it? He’s fully transformed from up-and-coming prospect into the leader of the offense. The Preds’ best chance of scoring usually happens when he, Arvidsson, and Johansen are on the ice together. Which...I guess could either be a really good or really bad thing, depending on how you look at things. That being said, I can’t tell if this season was a step forward or backward from last...

2018-2019 Player Reviews: Kevin Fiala

2018-2019 Player Reviews: Kevin Fiala

He did not. The Report Card: Data:...
