Continuing my re-look at the 2013 draft. 11. Sam Morin - Philadelphia Flyers - The Flyers went off the board at 11 and drafted their first defenseman in the first round since Luca Sbisa in 2008. Morin was regarded as a first round talent, especially after his impressive playoff showing, but closer to the 20-30 range than the top-10. Regardless the Flyers gambled on his size and relatively yo...

James Tanner: Coyotes Blow 3-0 Lead
The Coyotes lost to the Avalanche last night in one of the worst games ever. Not to be to hyperbolic about it or anything, but it was brutal.

I even felt bad for Colorado goalie Reto Berra who let in 3 goals on 8 shots that you couldn't really blame him on. The first two deflected of a sti...

Randall Ritchey: Brian Elliott Injured In Shootout Loss To Senators
The St. Louis Blues and the Ottawa Senators play each other twice a year. They haven't met in the playoffs at all, yet for the last two seasons, these games have been filled with hostility.

Ian Cole put the Blues on the board in the first after his shot from the point was tipp...

Bob Duff: Nyquist amused to be portrayed as goal scorer
Gustav Nyquist finds all this attention about his goal scoring to be somewhat humorous, because frankly, the Detroit Red Wings right-winger doesn’t view himself as a sniper. “From my own experience, I’ve never really been a goal scorer,” said Nyquist, who leads the Wings with 10 goals in 21 games. “I’ve always had more assists.” In fact, until he arrived for good in Detroit abo...

Lyon's Den
When Yale won the national title two years ago, goaltending wasn't considered its strong suit.

Second Thoughts
One thing that many observers or participants of the game will actively harp on throughout any given season is that teams absolutely positively need to win faceoffs. Good faceoff guys are celebrated, bad ones shielded as much as possible from taking draws in high-leverage situations. This all makes sense, because winning a faceoff means you have the puck, and potentially have the ability to impact ...

Claude Julien, Boston Bruins Good Enough for Regulation Tie Against Penguins
Four more minutes, 28 more seconds, and maybe the top talking point after Monday night’s action would have been Claude Julien’s early Jack Adams candidacy.

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Mason Steals a Point, Flyers Alumni Remember Quinn
MASON STEALS A POINT IN SHUTOUT 'LOSS' Win or lose, shootouts are a farcical way to decide hockey games. The stupidity of the skills competition is never more obvious than when both opposing goaltenders get credited for shutouts yet one goaltender gets a loss on his record because of the shootout. Last night on Long Island, Flyers goaltender Steve Mason turned in a spectacular 46-save perfo...

Ryan Wilson: Let's Talk Emerson Etem
With the Penguins getting another injury scare with Beau Bennett last night it was another reminder just how thin the Penguins depth at the winger position is with Pascal Dupuis out for the remainder of the year. Are there options that won’t break the bank? Of course there are, but they don’t come risk free. The reason they will come cheaper is because of the inherent risk. A good exam...

Dee Karl: Isles Win Makes History
The Islanders are making franchise history and gaining respect at every turn. A total of 15 wins in 21 games is the best record the Islanders have ever had. It took a shoot-out to get a puck past the Flyers' Mason because he was just a brick wall for 65 minutes. On the other end, Halak put on his own show, although his work load was far less as he only faces 21 shots to Mason's 46. He should...

When I said yesterday that the Senators were quaking in their skates about Stephen Weiss' anticipated return to the Red Wings' lineup, it was completely tongue-in-cheek.

Here are some random thoughts on...

Ranking the Best Available Replacement Options for NHL Head Coaches in 2014-15
At some point, NHL teams are going to start firing coaches. It happens every year, and with the salary cap making midseason trades difficult, it's often one of the few options at the disposal of teams looking to improve their results. The question is always whether it makes sense to go with an internal candidate (an AHL coach or an NHL assistant) or to hire a currently unemployed veteran coach. We've ignored the in-house options here, beca...

Ty Anderson: Bruins' Pastrnak to debut vs. Pens
The Boston Bruins held out as long as they could. But after 22 games, 2014 first-rounder David Pastrnak is with the big club and ready for his NHL debut. And it was only a matter of time, really.

Rick Sadowski: Remembering Pat Quinn; Berra, Tanguay back for Avs
I am so sad to hear of Pat Quinn's passing Sunday night in Vancouver. I had no idea he was ill. I got to know him in Los Angeles years ago when I was covering the Kings and he was about the umpteenth head coach they hired. Things were a lot different then. The coaches and writers would sit around a table in the Forum Club after games, have a few beers and just talk. Everything was off the recor...

Ryan Garner: Oilers Demonstrate Laziness, Poor Optics in Goalie Coach Shuffle
Public griping over a lack of improvement under his watch had reached a fever pitch, so the Edmonton Oilers finally relented on Monday, giving in to the will of the people and firing the man responsible.

Michael Pachla: On Edmonton/Buffalo and McDavid. Plus the Marrone/Rolston connection
The Buffalo Sabres have some company at the bottom of the league thanks to a three game winning streak that boosted their record to 6-13-2, good for 21 points. It's the exact same record as the Edmonton Oilers who are presently on a four-game slide. The Oilers hold the "tie-breaker" via their six regulation/overtime wins. Buffalo has four. I won't claim to know what's going on in Edmonton, but...

The Biggest Takeaways from the 1st Quarter of the 2014-15 NHL Season
Time flies when you're having fun. One-quarter of the National Hockey League's 2014-15 regular season is already in the books. Fans have been treated to some terrific hockey, from both established stars and emerging players. For the most part, the focus has stayed on the game; issues of player safety and supplemental discipline have remained mostly in the background. We're now getting deep enough into the grind to believe that a team's hot or cold starts could set the baromet...

As bad as Edmonton's goaltending has been - and it has been bad - the same tandem post...

Ryan Wilson: Should Penguins Be Looking At A Star Winger?
As we continue to speculate about the potential of a top six winger trade I wanted to give my two cents on the kind of value I would be looking for if I was Jim Rutherford. The Penguins aren’t in need of a star winger to play in the top six. They have two mega-star centers who have shown they can make others around them better. The problem is that throughout the past number of years the Pen...

Eric Engels: Predictable Habs loss to Rangers After Impressive win over Bruins
After an impressive performance against the Boston Bruins Saturday, the Canadiens predictably fell flat against the New York Rangers Sunday, completing a 13-day stretch that saw them play eight games against quality opponents.

The Buffalo Sabres are on a three game winning streak. To what do they owe the credit for their sudden turnaround? I'd have to credit their improved D-zone coverage and their goaltending.

The only team worse than the San Jose Sharks (3-5-2) in the Western Conference over the last ten games are the Edmonton Oilers (2-7-1).

Follow Paul on Twitter: @paulstewart22 There has been a disturbing trend around hockey -- and society -- the last few years to discount the importance of intangibles such as leadership, grit, work ethic and character.
