Losing the precious services of Sidney Crosby would be a big enough blow to any NHL franchise, but losing Crosby indefinitely with a concussion and having to deal with Evgeni Malkin missing for the next six months due to a severe knee injury is a setback that would surely leave any club believing they are destined not to reach the playoffs this season.
With Malkin widely regarded as the stand out performer in the 2009 playoffs, the Penguins know that they will be missing a man who has not only shown he can light up the Eastern Conference but can also make a huge difference when players step up to another level in the playoffs and anyone looking to place an ice hockey bet should remember this.
Despite this, the Penguins need to ..click here to read more

In fantasy hockey, the most abundant position on the ice is the center. The drawback of this fact tends to be that the center position is usually assist heavy and lacking on goals. With the entry of the likes of Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, and recently Nicklas Backstorm and Henrik Sedin, the position has morphed into one that is a threat on both the goal and assists columns.
These players, and other budding NHL stars, have transformed the position and given it more relevance in recent years. Therefore, I present the following lists to provide helpful advice to win your pool with the top 10 centers in the game, risers, fallers, a look at the sophomores, and rookies to watch in the upcoming season.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have had quite a boring off-season when it comes to the free agent market, but that could be a very good thing, just ask Marc-Andre Fleury. Ray Shero bolstered the defense by signing Zbynek Michalek, and former Devil, Paul Martin. The question is still there, however, who will be playing alongside Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.

That seemed to be answered with a late signing of Mike Comrie to a one year deal making a measly $500,000. Comrie’s agent said that he gave him a list of teams that he would be willing to play for and to talk to those teams to see who was interested in his services.

While sports betting experts debate the newest March madness odds, the NHL races towards the playoffs with the lower-tiered teams fighting for their playoff lives. At the top of the heap are many of the same teams that were top contenders last year. At the very top of the price per head odds for winning the Stanley Cup are the Washington Capitals and the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins.
Right now the Capitals are 9 to 2 favorites win the Stanley Cup and the Penguins are 5 to 1 favorites to defend their title. Over that past three seasons the Capitals have steadily improved, mostly in the offensive departments. The Caps will go beyond 300 goals for this season which eclipses their mark from last year of 272.

Team Canada knew deep down the moment they lost to USA earlier in the tournament that they would meet them again in the Finals for the Gold. With that in mind, they knew they had to play a solid game, and not make the same mistakes the USA had been making during the tournament. Boy did they deliver. Canada came out in the Gold Medal game ready to play and immediately brought it to Team USA as they did in the previous game they lost to USA. USA did not show up to play in the first period.
Once again it was USA Goaltender Ryan Miller keeping them in the game. USA played the same sloppy play as I have personally brought up before during the tournament. Jonathan Toews scored late in the 1st period to put ..click here to read more

The Canadian team has a stacked line up that should be a terror for the German team. The Germans only have a handful of NHL players and the Canadians only have the best players in the NHL. They’ve been shut out twice have to run the table to get ..click here to read more
