As the third quarter of the season is underway, here is an updated list of my draft rankings for the month of March.  Here are a few notable players and drops/progressions worth noting. -Anton Lundell has dropped in my ratings (some of it is injury related, as in some player have climbed while he was out with injury,...
Unlike the NBA, the NHL trade deadline is often a bit on the boring side. This year is gearing up to be one of the least likely to make a "splash" in recent memory. However, that doesn't prevent a fan like myself from dreaming. What if each player who is likely available went to the best possible scenario? The NHL...

Now is as good a time as any to do an in-depth look and rankings of each player, and where I have them ranked in the draft. It's a little past the midway point and with the World Junior Championship over, I've had a better chance to see some prospects and have some better ideas about projections. Here are...
We have officially surpassed the midway point of the season for the Philadelphia Flyers. After 44 games, they have maintained the pace I expected this season, as they are currently a bubble team sitting just inside the last wild card spot. Overall, the team has shown massive improvements from last season, but the Flyers are in desperate need of...
It's the most wonderful time of the year! Starting on Boxing Day, December 26th, the world's arguably most exciting hockey tournament begins in the Czech Republic. The World Junior Championship is beloved in Canada and Europe, and while it may not receive the same media attention in the United States, it is still a stellar tournament and very entertaining....

Holiday joy has come early this year to the Flyers and their fans. While it isn't quite time to deck the halls with a Stanley Cup, making the playoffs is a more likely reality with every game. With that in mind, even with a high-level success, a few players still have a few wishes they hope Santa can come...
