Good morning!  The Northeastern United States got zonked with 2 feet of snow on Saturday but after the big dig, I’m raring to go with my hot cup of coffee.

We have not seen the like of this Jonathan Drouin situation since the Eric Lindros debacle.  I just hate to see this get ugly when it didn’t have to be.

Ryan Johansen seems to be enjoying life in Nashville so far.

The Penguins have come alive of late and people will start calling this the March of the Penguins soon enough.

ADDEM: WAIVER THOUGHTS

Andrew Shaw has been reaping the rewards of lining up with Jonathan Toews and Marion Hossa, picking up five points over the last four games. Chicago is on a crazy roll, winning 10 straight and here is to hoping coach JQ keeps his lines intact. Shaw is only fantasy worthy when playing with stars,...

Good morning hockey lovers!  With a tooth pulled an hour ago, I’m on the ice but without the coffee. 

This is the time of year when players and teams start to put it into a higher gear as they try to reach their stride heading into the playoffs.

There has been a little bit of a Dallas fade lately while Chicago has picked up their game and now have taking over the lead in the Central Division.

Welcome to the New Year!  May you be blessed with health and happiness in the coming year!

I believe Sidney Crosby has made the PrimePucks™  Who’s Hot list for the first time this season!

Don’t look now but the Philadelphia Flyers are beginning to wake up and get into playoff contention.

That Capitals-Rangers game on Saturday afternoon was an exciting one!  I hope they play against one another this playoff season again!

Ovechkin is a beast!

ADDEM: FLORIDA PANTHER AT LARGE?

Aleksander Barkov
The 20-year old center is a star in the making and has flourished on a line with Jonathan Huberdeau and Jaromir Jagr. Having scored 23 points in 29 games, the skilled Swede should be in line for a 65-70 point year with more to come in the near future. The window is quickly closing to get this Panther, so act fast if he is still on the waiver wire.

ADDEM: SPOONER THRIVING

Ryan Spooner, Boston

Third line center for the "B's" is not a plus but playing on arguably the best top PP unit in NHL definitely is. The kid has some serious upside which would be realized quicker when he moved up to top six. Take a flier on him as it could pay off in the form of 60+ points in '15-16.

A good hot cup of coffee to get the sleep out of one’s eyes and the chill out of the air!

Colonel Klinkhammer made a cameo then went to the infirmary.  I appreciate the effort mein commandant!

Jonathan Bernier making it a statement game against the LA Kings with a 5-0 shutout.  It will be interesting to see when James Reimer gets back in action.

Sabres played the Blackhawks tough going to a shootout before losing 3-2.  It seems like the Hawks should never lose with the way Patrick Kane is going this season.

BETWEEN THE PIPES: ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS...

BTP: ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS…

COREY CRAWFORD – some recognition as a top-flight goaltender.  I mean I’ve been involved in 4 consecutive shutouts lately, winning three of those, and have won 6 of 7.  And have won 2 Stanley Cups in the last 3 years.

SEMYON VARLAMOV – Some stability please.  II know I have the talent, I just need to stay healthy and gain some consistency in the crease.  I’ve won 5 in a row of late, but I’ve also had a stretch of losing 6 of 8 earlier in the season.
