No Longer On Top

Well, for the first time in a very long time, Anaheim no longer leads the West. The Nashville Predators have taken over, and don't look like they're going to slow down at all. Vokoun and Mason is the new top goalie pair in the league, and niether one is even hinting at possibly playing a bad game for the rest of their careers. Chris Mason currently leads the league in Save % with a .930, which is .001 better than Brodeurs. The Preds look towards the Presidents Trophy, but the season is far from over.

Atlanta has fallen from their familar #2 spot in the East, as New Jersey passed them and moved into 2nd last night.

Is there a hotter team in the league right than St. Louis? This team has been fun to watch over the past few weeks, and are closing in on that .500 mark. Seven points out of a playoff spot, its unlikely, but in this new NHL, anything can happen.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have put Alexander Suglobov on waivers. I'd be surprised if nobody claimed him.

Adam has a new article up, it's part 2 of a 3 part series on the first half of the season. Its a great read, check it out.

Also, check the forums out, as we have a new forum called "Question Of The Day". Each day I will post a question worth discussing. Yesterday we looked into who the best goalie in the NHL today is. Today we look at expansion, and who's for and against it. So far I'm the only one supporting it, so make sure to drop by the forums and make your voice heard.

Game of the night tonight, for me, without a doubt is Vancouver at Buffalo. Vancouver has climbed back into 3rd place in the West, as they've been very very good lately. Buffalo looks to prove their still one of the best teams in the league tonight, as they've struggled a bit as of late, going a mediocre 5-4-1 in their last 10. for all your questions and comments, I will respond, promise! Have a good friday everyone, and check for all the latest.
