    2014-’15 NHL Betting: Montreal Canadiens outlook

    Some see a Conference final appearance as a success, while others see it as not good enough. The Canadiens could see it as both, as they made an improbable run last year in the playoffs, sweeping Tampa Bay, beating Boston on the road in Game 7 in the 2nd round, and falling to the Rangers in 6 in the Eastern finals. Most people expected that after Carey Price.....

    2014 – ’15 NHL Betting: St. Louis Blues outlook

    Letting Ryan Miller cost the St. Louis Blues a highly successful season was the worst move they made all year.

    2014-15 NHL Betting: Boston Bruins outlook

    The Boston Bruins open the season as they seemingly always do lately -- favored to take the Atlantic Division, favored to represent the East in the Finals, and favored to take home the Stanley Cup.

    2014-’15 NHL Betting: Detroit Red Wings outlook

    You would think after making 23 straight playoff appearances that the Detroit Red Wings would attract a couple of free agents to come in and take advantage of the rite of passage to a post-season berth, but no one bit on the hook so they will have to go with what is already there. Adding injury to insult, Pavel Datsyuk could be starting the season on the .....

    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.....
