The Rangers and Tampa Bay Lightning can both taste the Stanley Cup Final, unfortunately for one team you can’t have your cake and eat it too. Both teams have made it this far but only one team can go all the way. What makes this Game 7 better than the rest is this series is up in the air. This game can either be a blowout for one team or a tight checking one-goal game that the Rangers are all too familiar with. In the spirit of all things great in…

Yet, with the Memorial Cup in their own backyard, they have been noticeably absent with attendance down significantly from tournaments held in other cities in recent years.

While most of a successful team often comes from the draft, many important players on Stanley Cup winners were signed as free agents, such as Marian Hossa of the Blackhawks or Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins. While the biggest names available this summer include Mike Green of the Washington Capitals and Martin St. Louis of the New York Rangers, here some under the radar players are…

There are many interesting questions surrounding the Winnipeg team who only have 7 forwards under contract next season. Michael Frolik, Drew Stafford, and most of the bottom 6 forwards are all free agents, and the Jets have many prospects that may finally be ready to make the leap to the big club.
