Notice, prominent for their defensive style of play, Devils have appeared to have looked for net back more mostly this year. Mostly, welcome home Shanny! Of course Shanahan addition of course won’t hurt. Now let me tell you something. Blackhawks currently own the third better defense in League. Add in the junior Patrick, snipers and Patrick Kane Sharp and this team is poised to make noise come Playoff time. Flyers have won just four games over their past 10 but with Jeff likes Mike Richards, Carter and Simon Gagne, you can’t expect this slump to last for long.

If they need to make the Playoffs, they need to add more than Steve Sullivan to their lineup. Predators are eight 14 two on road this year and have won merely 2 of their past 9 games. Definitely, burke’s first move as GM was probably to bring in Brad May.
