The Montreal Canadiens remain one of the most famous and recognizable franchises in the National Hockey League. We’ve all heard the names who have donned the white, red, and blue “Tricolore” of Montreal and marveled at icons such as Maurice Richard, Jean Beliveau, Patrick Roy, Henri Richard, Guy Lafleur, and Yvan Cournoyer. Fast forward a generation (or two), to the current crop of players on the “Habs” with the likes of Max Domi, Carey Price, Tomas Tatar, and Shea Weber. Although these are all pretty good pieces, they’re a far cry from the “good old days” that so many Canadiens from across Canada and the United States were accustomed to during the 1970s.
It is an extremely difficult time in the world of sports right now. Absolutely NOTHING going on besides NFL free agency. I usually write my Fave Five for NBA DFS, but due to the Covid-19 coronavirus, every single sport has been shut down for the foreseeable future. Not to worry, I am giving you guys my favorite rookies to enter the 2020 NFL Draft. Continue reading →
As promised, the 2nd Big Ten Tournament Preview article is here! Before we get started, a couple of updates.
Nebraska has added the Football team’s Backup QB- Noah Vedral and Offensive Tackle Brant Banks since the publication of Tuesday’s Article. The team was down to seven after suspending two players indefinitely. (Remember last season’s improbable run by the Huskers? They were down to that many players then!)
Tampa Bay had a season that most probably expected. It wasn’t great, but it also didn’t send fans running back for refunds every week. They finished 7-9 on the year, mostly thanks to strong run defense and offensive weapons that made their quarterback look alright. However, offensive line play was pretty bad, and the run offense was pedestrian. The Bucs come into the draft having only seven picks this year, and these positions should be big target areas for Tampa Bay to address. Continue reading →
The Seattle Seahawks had a much better season than most expected. Russell Wilson made miracles happen behind a lackluster offensive line, Tyler Lockett, and rookie receiver D.K. Metcalf. Even as the running game lost their top two running backs in Rashaad Penny and Chris Carson by season’s end, this team still put up a fight in the playoffs getting eliminated in the divisional round against the Green Bay Packers. Seattle put up a respectable 11-5 record in a solid season. Continue reading →
Don’t expect the Vikings to be much of a player in free agency, as they are currently $700 thousand dollars over the cap, this according to Spotrac. With certain players they are going to want to re-sign and not a ton of cap space to spend, it’s going to take a lot of number crunching in order to get this all figured out.
The Buffalo Bills made a nice run during the 2019 season, finishing 10-6 and making the wildcard game. Unfortunately, they blew a lead to the Texans, so they are still winless in the playoffs in recent history. The culture is meshing well in Buffalo right now. The coaching staff has it figured out and this group of guys resembles a true team. They have a tough 2020 schedule, so they will need to add some talent, especially on offense, in order to compete next season.
