Carson Lambos
Gabriel Foley - Jan 9, 2021

Carson Lambos is one of many players in the 2021 NHL Draft class who could go first overall. But he’s far from earned the consensus. With so much talent from players like Owen Power, Brandt Clarke, and Matty Beniers, there’s no real favourite this year. And Lambos hasn’t really helped his case much. He managed […]

Alex Metzger, Editor - Dec 22, 2020

There have been lots of talks recently about the Vegas Golden Knights. They signed the biggest name on the market in Alex Pietrangelo. However, that led them down a world of cap troubles.

Max Pacioretty

The offensively starved Arizona Coyotes desperately need a scorer like Max Pacioretty. The team was 23rd in scoring last season with just 2.71 goals per game. Pacioretty himself averaged 0.45 goals a game and that could certainly help. To demonstrate how Pacioretty could dominate the offence on the Coyotes, Nick Schmaltz was 99th in scoring […]
