NHL 2010-2011 Season Previews: Northwest Division
Now we're just chugging along here with out secret training camp previews. Up today, the Northwest division.
The Good: The team's new acquisitions are already familiar with both the city and team as they all played for the Flames 3 years ago.
The Bad: The team's new acquisitions are dudes who PLAYED FOR THE FLAMES THREE YEARS AGO!
Secret Strategy for the New Season: Will hope that this attempt at a tank job leads to Penguin-esque success.
The Good: Have an amazing player in Henrik Sedin and his twin Daniel as well too.
The Bad: Have a huge lockerroom void created by the loss of Kyle Wellwood.
Secret Strategy for the New Season: Will bank on the success of a backup goalie NOT named Andrew Raycroft.
The Good: Have a solid core of young players who are now all due for their sophomore slumps at the same time.
The Bad: Will not be able to rely on Peter Forsberg returning in order to save them.
Secret Strategy for the New Season: Hope that Peter Budaj is actually Czech for Patrick Roy.
The Good: Have a guy named Nicklas Backstrom on their team, and if what google tells me is true, then Nicklas Backstrom is a 80 point guy which makes him the perfect pair for Mikko "Numbers Don't Matter" Koivu on the top line
The Bad: Just realized that they have the OTHER Nicklas Backstrom and that numbers do matter.
Secret Strategy for the New Season: Will run on the hope that no one notices their existence again.
The Good: #1 Overall pick Taylor Hall has yet to demand a trade out of Edmonton
The Bad: #1 Overall pick Taylor Hall is getting closer to demanding a trade out of Edmonton
Secret Strategy for the New Season: Attempting to find a way to move the team out of Edmonton.
