S27 - Whalers Start Making Changes

By Dustin Funk (WHALERS) On Tuesday 18th June 2024 / 6:10pm

“This is a trade that reeks of desperation!”
“WTF are they thinking, basically gave away Spezza to a division rival.”

“We already couldn’t score, so you trade away a guy that can for a guy that can’t?”
“#FireFunk”

 

If the internet has anything to say about the recent Leafs/Whalers trade, it is one that is horribly one-sided, at least in Hartford and amongst their fan base.  Earlier today, the two teams made a seven player swap that saw Jason Spezza returning home to Toronto, along with Derek Forbert and rookie forward Jason Zucker.  In return, the Whalers are picking up veteran two-way forward James Neil, defenseman Marco Scandella, veteran depth forward Patrick Berglund and a 2nd round pick a few years down the road.  While the internet may not like it, it seems that Whalers GM, Dustin Funk is pleased with the return.

“We need to shake things up here.  Obviously what is happening is not working.  Our key offensive players are not getting the results and really haven't in two years now.  So something needed to change.”

For the Whalers return here, a lot of it will depend on more than the individual results of the three that are arriving today in Connecticut, but how the team as a whole responds to the move.  While it may be depressing for the Whalers fan base, let's not forget that Jason Spezza is one year removed from being a little bit over a half point-per-game and only a goal in the Whalers first thirteen games this year.  Clearly something is broken there. 
For Whaler fans, there is some golden lining here.  James Neal has been just as productive the past two years as Spezza, while being deployed in a similar role.  Neal is also far more advanced defensively and will provide more support in goal prevention and a superior job in wearing down opposing clubs.  Where Neal fits in the Whalers line-up is a current mystery, however do not be shocked if they choose to deploy him in a checking line role versus an offensive role.

In Marco Scandella, the Whalers have basically acquired a more veteran and therefore more advanced version of Derek Forbort, but one with guaranteed club control.  While we may give the edge in pure defensive play to Forbort, Scandella is a far superior puck handler, passer, and plays a more disciplined style of hockey, something those inside the Whaler lockerroom know has been preached early on. 

Finally in Patrick Berglund, the Whalers have once again basically advanced the development curve of the player leaving (Jason Zucker), and brought in more experience and more natural scoring abilities.  If the trend continues to double shift Steven Stamkos, having Berglund on the depth line will give the Whalers a better shot at creating more offense with Stamkos.

The bottom line is the things in Hartford have not gone to plan in a few years now, and things need to be changing.  Status quo is no longer acceptable.  The next question is not if another move is made, but rather when.

S27 - 5 Best Point Producers (by minutes played) (®)

By Dustin Funk (WHALERS) On Saturday 15th June 2024 / 4:51pm


In my opinion, one of the best measures for offensive production you can have is how many points a player puts up for every twenty minutes they are on the ice.  With this you are able to find a way to account for ice time and usage and even out the playing surface (to a point).  There are caveats, the main one being power play and penalty kill usage swaying that number in one direction or the other.  With that being said, it is as good a stat to gauge offensive production that we currently have.  

With that in mind, let's take a look at the league's top five players in this stat with a minimum of eight games played.

 

  1. Kyle Turris (Toronto) - 1.88p/20

Leading the league is Kyle Turris of Toronto, with twelve goals and eight assists in ten games, good for a p/20 of 1.88.  Currently Turris is the right wing on the club's top line with James Neal and Derek Stepan.  The truly interesting aspect of Turris this season is just how drastic his production is compared to his teammates.  Consider this, we know Turris has twenty points good for tops on the club, while Vincent Trochek is second with nine points.  It is easy to identify Turris as the key reason for the Leafs success.

 

  1. Max Pacioretty (Buffalo) - 1.76p/20

Even though Pacioretty has only played in nine of the twelve games and is currently just about to return to line up from an injury, he is the Sabres leading scorer with nine goals and eight assists.  At points this season, Pacioretty has been skating on the clubs second line with Aleksander Barkov and Vladimir Tarasenko, showcasing the clubs amazing depth.  With Max due to join the roster this week, the Sabres are due for another offensive bump to help them maintain their spot atop the league.

 

  1. Marcus Foligno (Arizona) - 1.70p/20

With Foligno, we have an interesting entry into this list.  Foligno is fifth on his team in scoring, but first in Arizona in points-per-twenty, with eight points in ten games.  Currently, Foligno is the right wing on the Yotes third line with Bo Horvat (whom is also above 1.ppp/20 as well) and Andrei Kostitsyn and gets no time on the power play or penalty kill.  This is just another example showcasing how the Coyotes carry their success year-in year-out with their depth through their lineup.

 

  1. Johnny Gaudreau (Philadelphia) - 1.65p/20

On a team where Alex Ovechkin has been struggling (one goal, six assists), it has been Johnny Gaudreau that has been picking up the slack..  For Gaudreau, he is a player that is taking advantage of his power play time on the first unit with six of his fourteen points coming with the man advantage where he skates with Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov.  In Philadelphia, the team runs their top power play perhaps the most aggressively in terms of ice time given.  Currently the top power play unit gets about two-thirds of the ice time, giving them ample opportunity to put up the points.  Away from the powerplay, Gaudreau is currently lineup up as the clubs left wing on their third line.  

 

  1. Jacob Silfverberg (Buffalo) - 1.60p/20

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Buffalo has two in the top five, especially when you consider they are the highest scoring team, but perhaps it should be a surprise that it is Silfverberg that falls in fifth here.  On a team with Vlad Tarasenko, Jordan Staal, Dustin Brown and Conner McDavid on the depth chart ahead of him, here lies Jacob.  For Silfverberg, he is currently seventh in team scoring, with nine points in those twelve Sabre games with those names above ahead in total points.  But where Silfverberg has succeeded is generating five-on-five production, where he averages around nine minutes per game so far this season.  Having played on both the third and fourth line, and only now getting a little bit of power play time with Max Pacioretty sidelined (Jacob has zero power play points to date), it is his creation down the lineup that has led him to fifth.

 

As mentioned, there are a lot of variables on this list.  While you can have the leagues top scorer on it (Turris) you can also find a clubs seventh best scorer (Silfverberg).  Perhaps that is why I find this list so interesting.

S27 - Detroit Leading the Way Early On (®)

By Dustin Funk (WHALERS) On Friday 14th June 2024 / 9:30pm


While the season is still young, the Detroit Red Wings have seen things break their way all season.  In nine games the Wings have nine wins, or in other words, they have been perfect to start.  Throughout the nine wins, the Wings have doubled their opponents on the scoreboard, scoring thirty-four goals to only seventeen given up, good for a league best seventeen goal differential.  Truely, things are looking good in Detroit.

Leading the way for the Wings is week one MVP candidate, Antti Niemi.  In goal, Niemi has been outstanding, posting a goals against average of 1.84 and a save percentage of .943, both put him second in the league to Bruins goaltender Robin Lehner.  It should also be noted that the Wings have had to use the extra frame to settle things in four of their nine games, where they have won three games in the shootout with the other in overtime.  In those three shootout wins, the Wings have scored a grand total of five goals, meaning that Niemi has been near perfect, saving ten of the twelve attempts he has seen.  In fact, Niemi has been perfect in his last two shootouts, and has gone eight straight shooters now without having let one by.

Outside the crease, depth appears to be the name of the game in Detroit.  As it stands of their previous game against Las Vegas, a 3-1 win, the Wings have spread their top three lines evenly in terms of ice time.  With that in mind, Detroit has been able to spread out their line up and share depth throughout and it is working.  Currently the Wings have four forwards averaging over a point for every twenty minutes played.  Seeing their top two centers in Patrice Bergeron (1.13 ) and Jake Guentzel (1.16) along with Bryan Little (1.06) really is not a shock.  What could be a shock is PA Parenteau (1.07) being the fourth member of that club.  The fourth line winger has been the key driver of what could be the league's best fourth line with Ryan Stoa (.80) and Jarret Stoll (.84).  All told the Wings have only three players (Jokinen, Vrbata, Hyman) that do not have a points per twenty minutes played over .75.
To go on a nine game winning streak, things really need to break in the correct direction.  Detroit is getting upper class production, both from their starting netminder and their depth forwards on the fourth line.  Things are looking great in the Motor City these days.

S27 - Whalers Start on the Wrong Foot (®)

By Dustin Funk (WHALERS) On Monday 10th June 2024 / 4:27pm


It has been a tough start to the season for the Hartford Whalers.  After two games early on in the season against Philadelphia and Buffalo, the Whalers have yet to keep the final score within a three goal deficit, let alone win a game.  Once again, it is the club's defensive game and goaltending that has been absent, a familiar story for those that have followed this team for a few seasons.
With thirteen goals given up, Hartford has been looking to make some changes in how they have lined up.  New acquisition, Kevin Bieksa is one of those that will be coming in to hopefully make that change happen.  After coming in as a late free agent signing at the end of the preseason after being bought out by Kansas City, Bieksa has been practicing with the club waiting to get into the lineup.  That will happen tonight as the Whalers will play a pair of games, hosting the Ottawa Senators, before flying out to Pittsburgh to play the Penguins. 
Bieksa will bring another strong defender that has had a problematic issue with taking penalties, albeit has shown better discipline than Dan Hamhuis and Brent Seabrook in recent times.  That ability to stay out of the penalty box even at a slightly better clip should be a help to the Whalers as they have been penalized fourteen times in two games and have a league worst penalty kill at 64%

“Defensively, we like what Kevin will provide for us.  He is a great defender and has been around the league for a good while now.  That experience should be a great asset to us and allow us to rotate through eight guys on the back end that we are comfortable with.”
The other part of the problem for Hartford early on has been their goaltending.  Both Tuukka Rask and Tristan Jarry have started in a game this year, and both have had struggles with a combined .845 save percentage.  With numbers that low in goal (and on the penalty kill), history says that those numbers should regulate towards league normals at worst, particularly Rask who has been an above average goaltender (statistically) since he entered the league. 
“We will need both guys at the top of their game over the next little while.  With three games over four nights, both Tukkaa and Tristan will be back in the crease.  Both guys are great in goal and can make the big save.  We just need them to make that first save and get on a roll for us here.”
With those three games in four nights coming up, the Whalers will be an exhausted group, however exhaustion is a lot more palatable after wins, something the Whalers are gunning for.

S27 - Sabres Season Preview (®)

By Dustin Funk (WHALERS) On Wednesday 5th June 2024 / 8:28pm


SABRES BY THE NUMBERS (S26)

Team Record: 43-30-11 (97 points)

Conference Ranking: 3rd

S26 Playoffs: Lost in 2nd Round (4-1 vs Toronto)

Goals For: 263 (3rd)

Goals Against: 248 (14th)

PP (Overall): 15.6% (4th)

PK (Overall): 84.3% (21th)

Leading Scorers: McDavid (38-46-84), Forsberg (35-36-71), Weber (11-43-)

 

Key Returnees

One needs to dig rather deeply to find a top scorer that isn’t returning to the Sabres roster.  In fact their top seven goal scorers are all back in Buffalo ready to build on their third place finish from one season ago.  Leader of the scorers is perennial preseason pick for the league's MVP in Connor McDavid.  In his rookie season last year, McDavid just led the Sabres from being a lottery team and into getting home ice advantage and a playoff series win in his first year.  In his second year, who knows what he can accomplish.


In and Out

This past offseason the Sabres just added to their already potent lineup.  The most noticeable pickups for Buffalo happen to be two of the available free agents in Dustin Brown and Jordan Staal.  To obtain their services, the Sabres paid a hefty price with the two combined to earn $17.5M each season for the next four seasons.  A small price to pay to deepen and strengthen their line up further.
In goal, the Sabres made a change up.  Replacing Ryan Miller this season will be Darcy Keumper.  Signed to a very cheap contract, Keumper will be relied on to improve on Millers numbers from a year ago and boost the clubs 14th ranked goals against statistic.

 

Breakout Player

With the overwhelming depth up front, we will focus on two young defenseman that we feel can be a big time breakout candidates for the Sabres this season, Olli Maata and Cody Ceci.  While we realize it is cheating to name two players in a spot where one is to be named, both of these young players are very similar in build and style.  Both have shown in their time in the VJHL through today that they can play stellar defense, a little bit of offense and the ability to play a physical brand while not taking a lot of penalties.  With a lot of focus on the forwards, these two could provide quality minutes and surprise the league with just how good they can be.


Storyline to Watch

Winning the offseason is fun, but doesn’t mean anything until the bullets really start flying in the regular season.  In the past we have seen teams with a lot of talent just not be able to figure it out on the ice, and have seen players seemingly regress when they are slid down the depth chart a little bit.  The success of this year's Sabres team really will be determined on the team gelling.  If they can do it, they will be successful, if not, they will be a team looking for answers in the offseason.

 

Prognosis

Coming off a third place finish where they had the third most goals in the VHL, and adding more guys that can score, that sounds like a recipe for success.  Adding Keumper to strengthen their goaltending should only add a few more wins.  From the outside in, it feels like the division title should be an attainable goal for the Sabres

S27 - Bruins Season Preview (®)

By Dustin Funk (WHALERS) On Tuesday 4th June 2024 / 11:52pm


BRUINS BY THE NUMBERS (S26)
*Winnipeg Jets replaced the Boston Bruins this past offseason.
**Last seasons Bruins were disbanded (along with the New Jersey Devils)

Team Record: 43-31-10 (96 points)

Conference Ranking: 7th

S26 Playoffs: Lost in 2nd Round (4-2 vs Tampa Bay)

Goals For: 253 (6th)

Goals Against: 235 (8th)

PP (Overall): 15.2% (6th)

PK (Overall): 85.0% (16th)

Leading Scorers: Brown (39-48-87), Horton (30-48-78), Nelson (25-37-62)

 

Key Returnees

After a tumultuous offseason, the “new” Bruins are in Boston ready to build off a successful regular season in Winnipeg last season.  Returning to the club are three of their top four scorers in Nathan Horton, Brock Nelson, and (the underrated) Marcel Goc. 
In goal, the Bruins tandem from one year ago remains intact, with Ondrej Pavelec seeming to be in the lead to take over the clubs starting goaltending from Robin Lehner.  Last season, Pavelec carried a 2.14 goals against to the end of the regular season and will be looking to build on that this season.


In and Out

The biggest potential loss this offseason came to fruition when Dustin Brown decided to test free agency.  He would ultimately sign with division rival Buffalo for $8M per season. On the backend, Ryan McDonagh also left the club for free agency, leaving a large hole in the Bruins top four defensive units.
The Bruins were not key players in free agency, choosing for some depth players like Brian Campbell.  The biggest move on the blueline was acquiring veteran defenseman Ossi Vaananen from the Hartford Whalers for a seventh round selection. 

 

Breakout Player

With there being a need to replace Dustin Brown, the Bruins are pinning their hopes on young forward Mika Zibanejad to take the next step this season.  Last season, the (then) 21 year old scored a mere twelve goals and thirty-seven points, and had a P/20 score of .48.  Skillful and fast, Mika has a lot of untapped scoring potential, and with a spot in the top six seemingly locked up while entering a contract season, Zibanejad has the opportunity to really cash in.


Storyline to Watch

For Boston, the biggest story is not what happens on the ice, but what will happen away from the rink.  Currently the Bruins are being run by the league while they wait for a new ownership/management group to take over.  Without that stability, it is likely that there will not be any earth shattering moves coming out of Boston, so the next guy in line will have all options on the table to do what they please with the organization.

 

Prognosis

With the loss of their top goal scorer and no direct replacement in hand, scoring could be a problem in Boston this season.  While the club will expect a bit of a bump by being run by the league in the short-term, there is definitely some long-term concern about how far their skill set will take them.  The Bruins have arguably one of the top goaltending tandems, and that should keep them in the game, however with depleted depth in front of them, it seems the Bruins are destined to miss the playoffs
