Washington Capitals Prospect Report – Playoff Edition

by Jeff Charlesworth
on

Hello and welcome to the latest Washington Capitals Prospect Update. Today I will give you
up-to-date playoff statistics on all of the players on the top 50 list as well as their final
regular season stats.

In what has to be described as an incredible disappointment, both the Capitals and the AHL
Portland Pirates suffered first-round upsets in the playoffs this season. The Capitals won their
division and finished second in the Eastern Conference, but were beaten by the seventh seeded
Pittsburgh Penguins in five games. Portland finished second in their division and third overall
but lost to the Worcester IceCats three games to one.

Not all is lost for the Capitals prospects, however. There are four players still alive in
post-season play. Scott Swanson and Houston (IHL) start their playoffs tonight, while in the WHL
- Calgary (Kris Beech & Rastislav Stana) and Spokane (Roman Tvrdon) are currently playing in
separate semi-final matches. The ECHL’s Hampton Roads Admirals lost their best-of-five
quarterfinal to Trenton last night, 3 games to 2.

Misc. Notes: Three players on the top 50 list missed the post-season, all due to injury:
Forwards Miika Elomo (shoulder) and Trevor Halverson (concussion) as well as Defenseman Alexei
Tezikov (broken foot). Forward Kris Beech suffered a broken finger early on in Calgary’s playoff
run, but should be back soon. So far, only two Capitals prospects have won their league Read more»

Kings Update

by Tony Calfo
on
The Los Angeles Kings season has to be regarded as a big step forward. The Kings posted one of their highest point totals in their history and developed two solid scoring lines and two effective defensive lines. Rob Blake had an outstanding season and the Kings played well despite some shaky goaltending. Then the Kings seemingly erased all those positives by relying on one scoring line and going 0 for the playoffs on the power play. So where do the Kings go from here?

Undisciplined Soo Greyhounds give Whalers nine PP’s in bloody conference final o

by Derek Berry
on

PLYMOUTH, MI-Even the most passive hockey watcher knows that it’s not good to give the opposition nine power play opportunities-in one game.
But that’s what the Soo Greyhounds did in their third-round Western Conference series opener against the Plymouth Whalers at Compuware Sports Arena last Saturday night, falling to the Whalers 4-1 before 2,987.
The gloves were dropping in this Ontario Hockey League contest and the penalty box door was constantly swinging open-especially Soo’s. But, was referee Dean Morton calling this one a little one-sided in favor of Plymouth?
“No, I don’t think so,” said Greyhounds head coach Paul Theriault. “We only had one full power play half way through the game, but I’m not going to question the job the officials did. It’s a good crew.”
Theriault did say, however, that he expects his team to win and play a bit more disciplined than their Game One showing.
The first period was even, in terms of the score. The Greyhounds got on the board first with a goal more than halfway through the first period. Chad Spurr, one of the team’s top scorers, notched a goal at 13:58 to make it 1-0. Then, the boxing matches broke out. Read more»

Phoenix Coyotes Update

by pbadmin

Expect one thing from the Phoenix Coyotes this summer. Changes. Lots and lots of changes. When Steve Ellman purchased the Coyotes franchise earlier this week, he purchased a team full of disenchanted players.

First and foremost for the Coyotes organization is a decision regarding GM Bobby Smith. Smith, brought in by the Burke regime, may find himself looking for a job sooner than later. The Coyotes hardly made any noise against the Avalanche in this years playoffs. This was due largely in part due to a lack of their star goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin and center Robert Reichel. Both players, Smith was unable to come to an agreement on new contracts. With fourteen free agents this off-season, Smith can ill-afford to lose any more of their top line talent, namely Dallas Drake and Lyle Odelein.

Speaking of Khabibulin, the Tampa Bay Lighting have reportedly shown interest in the netminder. Khabibulin who starred in the IHL this season should demand a high price. However, if changes are made within the management structure of the Coyotes organization, expect Khabibulin to reach an agreement to remain in Phoenix next season. Khabibulin is on record stating that he would return to the Coyotes organization if such a change transpired. This is in stark contrast to his previous comments regarding never again playing for the Coyotes organization.

Chasing Jamie: Rangers hope Youngster can Fill in

by Michael Theodore
on
Regardless of what “experts” say, Jamie Lundmark had a very good year for a very poor team. Maintaining a 90 plus point pace on a team that lost far more game than it won proved to be a challenging task for the 19-year-old Edmonton native who now appears ready for a new challenge in the NHL.

The Rangers fully expect 1999 first round blue chipper Jamie Lundmark to make a run for a shot in the 1999-00 NHL season. His work ethic isn’t a problem, nor is his world class skill level but still he isn’t a sure bet to make the team and one must wonder why. The answer to the riddle is simply a lack of space for the young speedster. Where can the Rangers find room with Petr Nedved anchored on the first line, soon to be hot shot sophomore Mike York on line two and most likely Tim Taylor and Manny Malhotra on the remaining two lines? All this and still the possibility of a Mark Messier return looming. One possible solution being thrown around is possibly turning Manny Malhotra into a left winger. Malhotra has proven a little lost at center at the pro level and turning the 6’2 210 center into a winger might solve two problems. Still Malhotra does appear a lot more comfortable at a pivot position.
