NHL.com did a nice piece yesterday that looked at NHL records that were within reach for select players this upcoming season.
After looking at the list, one can’t help but be amazed at the accomplishments of these special players and wonder why the NHL doesn’t attract more fanfare. However, there is one particular player that stands out and that’s New Jersey Devils’ netminder Martin Brodeur.
During the summer months and pre-season, hockey pundits and fans alike make their hockey-related predictions for the upcoming season whether it’s line combinations, potential trades, standings and some even go as far as predicting which teams will battle it out for hockey’s greatest prize: the Stanley Cup.
I, Patrick Hoffman, do not claim to be a hockey expert but I’ve been around the game almost all of my life, seen hundreds upon hundreds of NHL games live, held media credentials to New York Rangers games and even play the sport. I know what it takes to win hockey games and I believe that if you were to look at two teams in particular, you would see that they both have a chance to win the Cup.
