Welcome to the new HockeyAnalysis.com

Welcome to the new look of HockeyAnalysis.com.  We are also on a new server with a new webhost which I hope will be more reliable as I was experiencing a few too many down times and other issues at the previous web host.  Let me know what you all think of the new look.  There are still some things I might tweak with the new look but generally I think it is a big improvement and has a cleaner and more modern look and feel to it.

Here are tonights games.  There aren’t too many rivalry games but two struggling teams will have a big challenge tonight at Ottawa faces Buffalo and Philadelphia faces Anaheim.  Another interesting game might be Tampa vs Montreal because I believe these two teams are likely to be competing with each other for the last playoff spot or two come April.

Game Predictions – 11/14/2006

Just four games on the schedule tonight but not a whole lot to get real excited about. The Ranger-Devils game should be good because there is a geographic and divisional rivalry there and these two teams should compete for top spot in the division over the remainder of the season. Calgary looks to extend their four game winning streak against struggling St. Louis, the season the streak started against. while Minnesota should win easy against Phoenix. In the late game, Vancouver tries to solve the Red Wings excellent defense and Dominik Hasek. The Wings are coming off back to back

Is it time to trade Alfredsson?

I know in the past I have put out the idea that the Senators should consider trading Alfredsson. My argument prior to the 2005-06 season was that the team changed the coach, gave super-talanted Spezza the #1 center role, swapped star wingers (Hossa for Heatley) and acquired a star goalie (Hasek) and that if this team still can’t win in the playoffs that they should consider a major leadership change by trading Alfredsson. They were once again a dissapointment in the playoffs but chose to keep Alfredsson as their captain and leader. But 17 games into the season the Senators

Talk about return on investment…

The Anaheim Ducks made 3 interesting moves today. First they sent Stanislav Chistov to the Bruins for a 3rd round pick. No big deal there. The second move was to trade Todd Fedoruk to the Flyers for a 4th round pick. What’s interesting here is that the Ducks traded a second round pick to the Flyers for Fedoruk prior to last season. Not a good investment there. But the real interesting deal was the Ducks trading a second round pick to the Avalanche for George Parros. What is interesting here is that just 6 weeks or so ago the Avalanche

Game Predictions – 11/13/2006

The game to watch tonight is a rematch of last years eastern conference finals and prabably a matchup of the top two teams in the east again this year. Buffalo has been great all season and after a poor first 4 or so games Carolina has been great too. Should be a great game. In other games Ottawa tries to break their slump against Montreal while two slumping teams from Pennsylvania face each other as well. Both Philadelphia and Pittsburgh have lost 5 in a row. Florida faces Washington in a battle of mediocre southeast division teams and out west

Quick Hits – Some observations from around the NHL

-Don’t look now but the Leafs, who many predicted would have trouble scoring, are now second in the NHL in goals scored per game (behind only Buffalo). And it is not just the PP either as the Leafs are 14th in the NHL in PP%. -Is Rod Brind’amour the best player in the NHL right now? He is 7th in the scoring race, plays the power play, kills penalties with the best of them and is the best face off man in the NHL. -The future of the Avalanche looks brighter with Paul Stastney andWojtek Wolski sitting 3rd and 4th
