What will the blueline look like without Volchenkov?


The Ottawa Senators could lose both Andy Sutton and Anton Volchenkov to free agency on July 1st. Without them, who do they have left for their blueline?

Year-In-Review – 8 – Jack Johnson


Now that all the goalies have been reviewed, it's time to move to the defensemen. It might get a little hairy for these guys, but I think there's been enough time from the end of the season to now...

Year-In-Review – 9 – Rob Blake


Moving along to JJ's mentor through his first season with the Kings, Rob Blake. Blake definitely had an up-and-down season in terms of numbers, but then again, so did everyone on the roster. I...

Year-In-Review – 10 – Lubomir Visnovsky


Little Lubo Lubomir Visnovsky played in all 82 games this season tallying 8 goals and 33 assists for 41 points. He ended at a -18 and had 34 PIM (although I'm going to count that as 24 since he...

Mottau & White Ranked #6 & #7 Defensive Defencemen


SBN blog From the Rink just compiled a top 25 Defensive Defencemen in the NHL at 2009's quarter-mark point in the season. Here is the criteria players ranks were based on: "It ranks players defensively based on (a) quality of competition at even strength, (b) goals against per minute played at even strength and (c) goals against per minute played on the penalty kill. Players also have to have played at least 15 games and fill a significant role on their team's shorthanded unit. Credit, as always, to Behind The Net for the data." Mike Mottau & Colin White come in at numbers 6 & 7 just after or before some pretty impressive and just surprising company. Hell I'm kind of surprised to see both up there this high myself.
