Out of Town Notebook: Dead Teams Walking

As we wind down the 2011-12 NHL season, it’s only fitting to take a moment and pay our respects to the “dearly departed” – those teams we know will be golfing in a couple of weeks. Here now is a quick look at each of the teams looking ahead to 2012-13 already,  in reverse order of today’s standings. Columbus Blue Jackets What went wrong: Pretty much everything. James Wisniewski’s 8-game suspension crippled the team out of the gate. Coach Scott Arniel tried switching his team’s approach from an aggressive to conservative style mid-season, but the results were too poor to save...

Canucks Review and Preview: March 18 to March 25, 2012

[Every week, Caylie King reviews the Canucks week that was and previews the Canucks week ahead.  You can follow Caylie on Twitter (@CayKing).] The Canucks head out for a 4-game road trip this week. After a lacklustre 3-4 homestand, including this past week’s 5-4 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes, in which they blew an early 2-goal lead, and 4-3 win against the Columbus Blue Jackets. In the game against the Blue Jackets, the Canucks got off to a slow start, but fueled by the fans, who were loud and involved throughout the game, they turned it around and won thanks...

Out of Town Notebook: The Real NHL Western Conference Standings Revisited

At the end of the 20-game mark, I took a look at the “real” NHL standings in the East and West. Now that every team has played their 40th game, it’s time to even the playing field once again and see what’s really been going on in the NHL. Last time, I made special mention of a team’s special teams, goals for and goals against performance for the season. This time, to learn a bit more about an individual team’s strengths and weaknesses, each squad was ranked in six categories*: Goals for (GF) and shots-for (SHF) were chosen to evaluate...

Canucks Review and Preview: January 2 to January 8, 2012

[Every week, Caylie King looks at the Canucks week that was and the Canucks week ahead.  You can follow Caylie on Twitter (@CayKing.)] The Canucks looked to end 2011 with a California sweep, unfortunately they just fell short due to a poor effort against the Los Angeles Kings. A new year brings the same expectations. They had a fantastic month of December and we expect much of the same to finish off the season and continue on into the playoffs. Captain Henrik and his crew head back to Rogers Arena to play two home games and then head to Beantown...

Out of Town Notebook: Lost Seasons in Montreal, Los Angeles?

Out of Town Notebook: Lost Seasons in Montreal, Los Angeles?

Next year is the 20th anniversary of the Montreal Canadiens-Los Angeles Kings Stanley Cup Final. Don’t expect a repeat appearence from either team. Today, the Kings made it official, hiring Darryl Sutter as their new coach. We talked last week about how hiring Sutter might just be the least imaginative, worst-thought-out decision GM Dean Lombardi could make for his team. The Kings already defend well – it’s hard to see Sutter adding to this area. The Kings already had a coach who demanded accountability – and it’s doubtful Darryl Sutter will do this in a way that’s more innovative than...
