    2014-’15 NHL Betting: Buffalo Sabres season outlook

    The Buffalo Sabres are still trying to pick up the pieces from a dismal 2013-14 season, in which they only logged 21 wins and 157 goals, both categories ranking last in the entire NHL. They turn to Ted Nolan, who is in his second tenure in Buffalo after taking over late last year, to utilize training camp and valuable preseason time and try to not repeat .....

    2014-15 NHL Betting: Carolina Hurricanes outlook

    Ron Francis comes in as GM, Bill Peters takes over behind the bench, the front office has new names everywhere, and yet here reside the same old problems that have haunted the Hurricanes. Underachieving talent, an aging roster, and injuries up and down the roster again malign Carolina to start the season. So what was the point of changing the whole interior .....

    2014 – ’15 NHL Betting: Washington Capitals outlook

    Like him or not, the first name you have to start with when you talk about the Capitals is the captain, and only 50-goal scorer in the league last year, Alex Ovechkin. After missing the playoffs last year, but having the best power play in the league, the Caps now understand that without a defense to back up the offense, you can't simply outscore everyone.....

    2014 – ’15 NHL Betting: Toronto Maple Leafs outlook

    That crashing sound you heard was complete collapse by the Toronto Maple Leafs, after what started off as a more than promising start to the season. With a month left, they lost 12 of their last 14 and went from a content 5th spot to right out the playoff picture for the 8th time in 9 seasons. Leading up to the Olympic break, the Leafs fans couldn't stop.....

    2014-’15 NHL Betting: Pittsburgh Penguins outlook

    Even before the Pittsburgh Penguins won the Stanley Cup in 2009, there were lofty expectations on this team. They were one of only a handful of teams who got to the Finals the year before and won it the next season. A new GM, new coach, and a good chunk of new players fill the scene at the Igloo, as veteran GM Jim Rutherford brings Mike Johnston in to reliev.....

    2014-’15 NHL Betting: Philadelphia Flyers outlook

    As GM of the Flyers, Ron Hextall is now the man making all the moves, and he wasted no time making it clear he wanted to take what was already here and build on the terrific run they had to end last season and make the playoffs. Although it ended in a first round exit against the Rangers, bringing in Craig Berube at the beginning of last year, after the poor.....

    2014 – ’15 NHL Betting: Winnipeg Jets outlook

    Winnipeg Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff is convinced that the team they have in place now is the one that will turn it around. Mathieu Perreault was the only addition to the team given to head coach Paul Maurice to work with, after signing a fresh, new four-year deal. How much longer they let Ondrej Pavelec take this team in the wrong direction will be shocki.....

    2014 – ’15 NHL Betting: Calgary Flames outlook

    Yes, it was a tough year for Le Flame, but something clicked after a nice win vs Phoenix in late January and this team came together. It was convincing enough to GM Brad Treliving and Head Coach Bob Hartley that although they were nowhere near the playoff picture at any point of last year, they saw enough to not make any significant moves. They even let go M.....

    2014 – ’15 NHL Betting: Arizona Coyotes outlook

    Does that say Arizona Coyotes? Well, that will take some getting used to. The new owners essentially tied GM Don Maloney's hands, saying that they will not be looking for any high-profile, more importantly high-paid, free agents in the off-season. Two measly points. Just one win away from the 8th spot in the West last year, and if the saying, "It's not h.....
