Montreal should take advantage of Winnipeg’s mistakes and trade for Nikolaj Ehlers

The Jets are spiraling toward a directionless disaster, and Montreal should pounce. Just a season ago, the Winnipeg Jets were the toast of the Western Conference; a young team laden with budding stars and quality veterans who rocketed them out of the basement to a Western Conference Final. Fast forward to this year and they were an abject disaster from the new year all the way up to their elimination in the playoffs at the hands of the St. Louis Blues. While there’s no shame in losing to the eventual Stanley Cup champions, there is shame in the steep decline the team went through that has...

The window is certainly not closed, but history isn’t on their side. Still thinking of all the things that went wrong in the very forgettable yet truly unforgettable Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final? You’re not alone. But as members of the Boston Bruins clear out their lockers, leaving too are the remaining traces of a bittersweet 2019 postseason.

Options for Pittsburgh Penguins Defence Retool in Free Agency

A Pittsburgh Penguins defence retool isn't just wishful thinking for this offseason, it's mandatory if they want to go far next season. The Penguins seem to have already realized this. Over the weekend, they sent defenseman Olli Maatta to the Chicago Blackhawks. In return, they get a bit of cap space, Dominik Kahun, and a fifth-round draft pick. This needs to be just the start, though. Reworking the defence has been a long time coming, as the Penguins look to become a Stanley Cup-caliber team again. Fixing what has been a fairly inconsistent, and unhealthy, defence would easily spark the...

How Erik Haula plays into Golden Knights’ offseason plans

The former 29-goal scorer was a week to 10 days from returning to team practice after missing the prior five months with an ugly knee injury.
