Kaliyev has feasted on Junior defence, but there are a few signs that he will be able to adapt to better competition. Polarizing is the appropriate word to describe Arthur Kaliyev. Depending on the method used to evaluate him — a more analytics-intensive approach or scouting for tools, game sense, and projectability — Kaliyev can either come out as one of the better potential picks in the draft or one with a lot of question marks, some would say even red flags.

Montreal shouldn’t trade Andrew Shaw unless the deal is right

Date: 2019-06-12

A career year for the feisty forward has his value at its highest point, but that doesn’t mean Montreal needs to send him packing. After a divisive trade at the NHL Draft several seasons ago, Andrew Shaw finally entered into the role many fans were expecting when he arrived from Chicago. He was physical, brought solid offensive numbers, and kept himself on the ice instead of in the box or suspended. With 19 goals and 47 points, it was far and away Shaw’s best season in the NHL, and he was a driving force on a resurgent Montreal club that was supposed to finish near the bottom. The team clearly played more effectively when he was in the lineup, but after missing 19 games th

What does the future hold for Jesse Puljujarvi and the Edmonton Oilers?

EDMONTON — Jesse Puljujarvi skated with two coaches on Monday in Edmonton, the Oilers trainer watching like a hawk from the seats above. His drills weren’t about skating the length of the ice and blasting a shot, but instead a series of circles, and tighter turns, as he rehabs from surgery to correct a problem on both hips. He used pucks not in the traditional sense, but as pylons to be skated around. Swirling, turning, looping. Returning to the place he started, and doing it over again. This is the metaphor for the career of a No. 4 overall pick who is in limbo, circling somewhere between the ‘B’ word (bust), a young player who may be ready for that boost a second organization can give him. Or is he simply a 21-year-old who just needs some consistency in his handling to find a niche that he can use to find so

Free Agency Target: Jake Gardiner’s defensive issues might be overblown

Date: 2019-06-11

Contrary to his reputation, Gardiner offers steady defending with exceptional offence, and might be available at below market rate. “Gardiner was a dash-five. He had two giveaways. He fumbled the puck frequently and compounded his poor decisions. His passes refused to stretch, and when they did, it was for icings. When Babcock tapped No. 51 on the shoulder, 61 per cent of the shot attempts were being blasted at the visitors’ end.” - Luke Fox, Sportsnet, April 26, 2018 “His giveaway in Game 7 will be the moment that stands out for most. And really, that Gardiner’s gaffe —an attempt at a reverse behind his net that turned into a
