More Offense

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

This season, according to hockey-reference.com, NHL clubs average 2.93 goals per game, up from 2.77 last season. An increase, yes, but bear in mind that scoring tends to fall in the stretch run, which will bring the final number down. In the end, one-tenth of a goal per game is an advancement – but that’s eight goals per season per team.


Other than an aberration coming out of the lost season — 3.08 goals per game in 2005-06 — the last time NHL teams averaged better than 3.00 goals per game was 22 years ago: 3.14 goals per game in 1995-96.

We’re stuck in what is affectionately known as “a 3-2 league.”

“We hear about the race to three now?” said Oilers winger Mike Cammalleri. “The race to four or five would be a lot more fun.”

How Will The Fans React With Marc-Andre Fleury Returning To Pittsburgh?

from Jonathan Bombulie of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,

Given the emotional nature of Marc-Andre Fleury's return to PPG Paints Arena on Tuesday night, Penguins players have to be prepared for a possibility — however unlikely — that they probably never considered before.

Because of the goalie's popularity, there's an outside chance at least a portion of the crowd will boo a Penguins player for scoring a goal on Fleury and the Vegas Golden Knights.

“I'm not sure it could go that far, but if there's ever a possibility, this is the one,” winger Bryan Rust said.

“I guess there is a chance, right?” winger Tom Kuhnhackl said. “He's been here for a long time. He's obviously a face of Pittsburgh. If you think of Flower, everybody thinks of Pittsburgh. If I score tonight, hopefully I don't get booed. That would be a little bad.”

The Latest Rumor Talk

from Lyle Richardson at The Sporting News,

It's NHL trade rumor season. Each week before the Feb. 26 trade deadline, Lyle Richardson's Rumor Roundup column serves as a one-stop guide to the latest rumblings around the league....

When the Penguins were struggling back in December, there was talk of GM Jim Rutherford shopping for scoring depth. But with his club having improved in recent weeks, Rutherford could instead consider adding an experienced third-line center. The Stars could consider Nash as an option to bolster struggling veteran center Jason Spezza's scoring game.

Sitting 29th in goals-for per game (2.52) and 31st in power-play percentage (14.4), the Jackets need offensive help. Clinging to a wild-card berth in the Eastern Conference, they're in danger of tumbling out of postseason contention. It remains to be seen, however, if a reunion with Nash is in the cards....

The market for quality goaltenders is thin this season, with Detroit's Petr Mrazek the most notable believed available. Buffalo's Robin Lehner briefly surfaced in the rumor mill, but his performance is among the few bright spots in an otherwise miserable season for the Sabres. They'll likely retain him. Same goes for Carolina's Cam Ward as the Hurricanes jockey with the Islanders for a wild-card berth in the Eastern Conference.

Will the Central Division Dogfight Spill into the Trade Deadline??

By Chris,

The Metropolitan Division has, for quite some time, been recognized as the strongest and most competitive in the NHL. But, while the top spots in the Metropolitan are being battled for by many top teams, it simply can’t compare to the quality being put on show in the Central Division.

With around 30 games left of the NHL season, there’s still everything to play for, and the Central Division leaders look to be in a good place to keep pushing away and competing for a playoff spot. As of February 5, only the Blackhawks had a last ten record that didn’t have a six or higher in the wins column.

No Crap

from Flora Carr of TIME,

An ex-NHL owner is in a rather sticky situation.

Tom Golisano, a billionaire and former owner of the Buffalo Sabres, is refusing to pay his local taxes, after taking a stand over the amount of goose poo left on the lawn of his upstate New York property.

Golisano, 76, is refusing to pay the $90,000 he owes until local officials deal with the problem at his summer home on Canandaigua Lake, South Bristol.
