Northeast Preview

NHL Northeast Division

Our friends over at viewfrommyseats.com took a look at the Northeast division today, by asking respective bloggers 5 questions about their team. Each blogger answered the same question, and I’d say some of the answers are pretty interesting. Here are our responses, and you can find the entire division here. Yesterday VFMS took a look at the Atlantic Division, check back daily for other divisions around the league.

There’s going to be an entire new look to the Northeast Division. The Toronto Maple Leafs got much bigger. The Montreal Canadiens got much smaller. The Ottawa Senators got much more dramatic. The Buffalo Sabres got to be much bigger fans of the Coyotes staying in Phoenix. And the Bruins seemed like the only ones that needed to show up to the NHL Awards in Las Vegas.

So what does that mean for the upcoming season? Are the Bruins going to dominate the Division again on their way to the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference? Will the rest of the division step up and throw their weight around the Eastern Conference?

We have a great collection of bloggers around Northeast Division to give us an idea of what to expect this season. We have TheKiiid from Loge19 representing the Boston Bruins. We’ll get our Sabres perspective from David Oleksy at Die By The Blade. Fans of the Canadian teams will get their fix with PPP from Pension Plan Puppets (Maple Leafs), Kyle Roussel from All Habs (Montreal Canadiens), and Kevin Butler & Tambland from Stay Classy (Ottawa Senators). In fact, since Stay Classy can’t be trusted—we have a couple of responses from the guys.

Tomorrow we’ll give the Southeast Division the same treatment. For an entire schedule of the divisions we’re going to cover, you can find it right here (including yesterday’s Atlantic Division Roundtable). Until then, enjoy the Northeast!

1. Why is your team going to be better than they were last season?

Rask Will Not Be Suspended For Outburst

Tuuka Rask

Update from Tuukka Rask Freaks Out:

According to ESPN.com, Tuukka Rask, the Boston Bruins AHL prospect goalie, will not be suspended for his outburst in a game against the Albany River Rats. Rask had a meltdown after two very questionable goals were scored on him during the Providence Bruins’ 1-0 shootout loss to Albany. Rask was assessed a 10-minute misconduct penalty for his actions, however it was obviously at the end of the game and thus there was no real penalty to the team.

-Anyone have any suggestions for Matt Kalman to pass along to the Bruins to replace last year’s playoff hunt team-appointed ‘player of the game Bruins Hard Hat’?

-Great story on an alternate pronunciation of Scott Hartnell’s name – pictured above (Empty Netters)

-Bruins became the first team in the Eastern Conference to clinch a playoff spot with their big win over NJ on Sunday

-San Jose took back the lead for the Presidents Trophy with a win over Avs on Sunday. JR gives Alexei Semenov a pie in the face for his efforts as #1 star (via HLOG):

-Malkin’s head shot (below) on Wayne Simmonds drew a fine but no suspension from the NHL. Losts of conspiracy theories on why no suspension was handed down
