Game Predictions – 1/26/2007

After a lengthy all-star break the real NHL is back and is back with a full slate of 11 games. Unfortunately not a lot of them are great games but there are a couple of good ones. In particular the Calgary-Minnesota is of great importance to both teams in that tight northwest division race and the Edmonton-San Jose game should be a great game too.

Bettman Has to Go!!

Today James Mirtle hs pointed out an article by Stephen Brunt basically defending Gary Bettman saying the reason for not having a new schedule is because of the owners and not Bettman.

Game Predictions 1/18/2007

As usual for a Thursday we have a heavy schedule with 11 games being played. The game to watch tonight I think is Ottawa-Vancouver as this sees the hottest team in the west facing the hottest team in the east. The west has also been significantly better for most of the year and this will be a test to see how a top team in the east can compete with…

Game Predictions – 1/16/2007

I can’t believe that January is already half over but the calendar says it is the 16th so it must be. There are a lot of games tonight but not too many real quality ones as a lot of the lesser teams are playing. That said, there are a few games between teams battling for a playoff spot. Toronto-Tampa and Edmonton-Minnesota being the prime examples. Home Team FairHTOdds Road Team…
