Talent Analysis

Is an offensive-oriented defenseman. Piche does very well on the powerplay, as he has good puck control and possesses an impressive, strong shot. He also plays a steady defensive game when needed.

Future


Projects as a depth defenseman. Will really need to step up and show he can play at the pro level.  Piche was dealt to the Tampa Bay Lightning in the deal that brought Kyle Quincey back to the Detroit Red Wings.

The Boston Bruins traded Dougie Hamilton to the Calgary Flames for a first round pick and two second-round picks in the 2015 NHL Draft. The three picks Boston received are the 15th, 45th, and 52nd in what promises to be the deepest draft in over a decade. Read more»

The Top 5 undersized prospects available for the 2015 NHL Draft

For as long as hockey has existed, there have been small, undersized players that have found a way to change the game like very few can. Theoren Fleury, Glenn Resch, Martin St. Louis, Johnny Gaudreau, and Tyler Johnson–they’ve all been told they were too small, too short, and just not big enough for a sport of giants; but they never listened. Call it heart, call it willful ignorance, or thick skin, these players defied the odds in a league with an archaic belief that size matters; and they did it well. Read more»

The Ottawa Senators have traded Robin Lehner and David Legwand to the Buffalo Sabres for the 21st overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft. The trade ends weeks of speculation that began when the Senators signed Andrew Hammond to a three-year one-way contract on May 20th, a move that left the Sens with three NHL goaltenders. The Senators now own two 1st round selections in today’s draft, at 18th and 21st overall.

Returning to the playoffs is always a positive, but for the Vancouver Canucks a somewhat lackluster series against the rival Calgary Flames ended the season far too soon, leaving the franchise and its fans a palpable sense of arriving at a kind of crossroads. The double trends of a declining veteran group and a rising young group mainly composed of prospects must meet in the middle soon for another chance at a Stanley Cup. On the other hand, the Canucks’ teams of the 2000s etched a worthy place in team history, and with new management in place the future group of players looks strong enough to establish its own identity down the road. Adding another strong draft class over the weekend is of real importance.

For the second straight year, the New York Rangers positioned themselves for a run towards the Stanley Cup Finals. This time around, injuries and inconsistent play did them in as the team wasted another chance at its first championship since 1994. Read more»
