Basement-bound Jackets, Look Solid for the Future

by pbadmin

Mark McGwire didn’t hit a home run during his first at-bat in the Major Leagues. Michael Jordan didn’t lead the league in scoring in his first couple of seasons and even God needed seven days to create our surroundings. Summing all of that up, you can imagine how the Blue Jackets will not win the Stanley Cup next season. However, five years from now could be a different story.

The Jackets selected a solid team to put on the ice next fall. Veterans like Geoff Sanderson, Steve Heinze, Robert Kron, and Kevyn Adams will attempt to guide the rest of the young BJ’s out of the cellar of the NHL. And I think that the Columbus team will do better than the Minnesota Wild this inagural season. They have very solid goaltending (Tugnutt, Denis), some bangers on defense (Pushor, Quint, Odelein) and plenty of unproven youngesters to go around. I still believe they will finish in last place in the Central Division of the Western Conference, though.

South Carolina Stingrays Off Season Report

by Wil Kirwan
on
To Say that the Stingrays are going to have a new look for the 2000-2001 season would highly understate the situation. The ‘Rays are looking different with both new uniforms, and an influx of new talent. The Stingrays have already filled three of their five available veteran slots with Brett Marietti,
Jared Bednar, and Greg Schmidt. However, these older talents are quickly being complemented by some excellent prospects with NHL potential. One of the best offseason moves made as of this writing was the re-signing of Adam
Calder, a prospect with potential to move up to the AHL/IHL. Calder has the skills to be a major player for any team he plays for, and should add
excitement to the upcoming season. The only other prospect currently signed by the Stingrays is Zach Ham, a former collegiate player from Bowling Green. Ham Should add to a great Second or third line for the Stingrays, playing on
the wing with Adam Calder centering.

The combination of Calder and Ham looks to be a very productive line, and
the two could score more than their fair share of goals. Least season,
Calder averaged more than a point per game with 44 points. In 41 games with
the Rays, the Portage La Prairie, Manitoba native scored 22 goals and
chipped in 22 assists. The feisty forward also added 84 penalty minutes.
With the additon of a rough-and-tumble player like Ham to help take the
concentration of the defense away from Calder. Should Calder spend his whole Read more»

Lightning sign St. Louis

The Lightning have dipped into the free agent market and snagged a little one. The Bolts have signed Calgary Flames free agent Martin St. Louis. St. Louis is a 5’9” 180 lb. C/RW that registered 18 points for Calgary in 53 games last season. He was exposed for the expansion draft then his contract was bought out making him a free agent. GM Rick Dudley thinks he has an offensive upside that hasn’t appeared yet. The one thing he has is speed. What Dudley has done is what he has been doing since he arrived in Tampa adding young and speedy players.

Other than St. Louis, the Bolts have been quiet in free agency. They have opted to sign their own this summer. Players like Brian Holzinger, Dwayne Hay, Fredrik Modin, Steve Martins, Dan Cloutier and Todd Warriner have all re-signed. This has created an environment that the Bolts have not had for several years. Unlike the past few years the major makeup of the team won’t drastically change in the off-season. This allows this young group to continue to gel.

So for the rest of the summer don’t look for the organization to go after any big name free agents (probably because that cupboard is dry), but don’t be surprised to see a few key player to be added via trade. Dudley and staff seem content to build around this group adding more young complimentary players to bolster the line-up.
