The Flames have lots of experience, a bunch of players being on the 1982 champs. The Nordiques hardly have any experience. This is their first real run at a title. Quebec finished with the 2nd best record in the league, and has the statistical advantage over Calgary almost everywhere. Quebec though, relies on Doug Gilmour and Paul Coffey. If those two arenít scoring, the Nordiques arenít scoring. Calgary has a more balanced attack.

Quebecís goaltending situation is weird. Doug Soetaert has played the majority of playoff games, but heís sitting in the minors for some reason, and only played 12 NHL games during the regular season. Their two regular NHL goalies, Scott Gordon and Karl Friesen have each seen action in the playoffs. I have no clue who will play goal for them.

Rick Middleton scores twice, while the Flames top line pairing of Bryan Trottier and Brian Sutter combine for 7 assists. Flames win game one, 5-2. Game two sees Calgary score three straight goals in the 2nd period, to grab a 3-1 lead, but before period ends, Cam Neely and Paul MacDermid score, tying it entering the third period. In the third, Mark Lamb scores early, and David Maley adds the insurance. Quebec ties the series with a 5-3 win.


At 35, Rick Middleton is still scoring for the Flames!

Mark Tinordi and Cam Neely give the Nordiques a 2-0 lead, quieting the home town fans early in game 3. Brian Sutter gets the Flames on the board on a late 2nd period power play. Bryan Trottier would tie it 2 minutes into the third. Quebec responds. Doug Gilmour notches his 9th to give them the lead back, but the lead is short lived, as Marc Bureau ties it 3 minutes later. Overtime! In OT, the owner of 20 career goals over 6 seasons, Michael Dark is the hero, beating Brian Hayward at the 10:12 mark. Quebec wins it 4-3! Game 4 is kind of the opposite of game 3. Calgary jumps out to a 2-0 lead, only to see Quebec score two late in the 2nd to tie it. The teams exchange third period goals to force overtime, and this time, Calgaryís Andrei Lomakin ends it after 16 minutes of extra play. 4-3 Flames!


Mike Dark gets the biggest goal of his career in game three!

After playing to 1-1 stalemate through the first two periods of game five, the Nordiques run into some penalty problems in the third. They take 4 straight minors, and lose Paul Coffey to a 10 minute misconduct for what looks like arguing with the ref. Calgary takes advantage, scoring 3 times in a 6 minute span. Flames win it 4-1. Game 4 hero, Andrei Lomakin opens the scoring of game 6, giving hope to the home crowd that today is the end of the series. Doug Gilmour has other plans though. In the 2nd, Dougie sets up Cam Neely to tie it, scores the go ahead goal, and sets up Paul Lawless who gets an insurance goal. Thatís all the scoring. 3-1 Quebec. We go to game 7!


Gilmour is the first star of game 6!

GAME 7



This is Quebecís 27th game of the playoffs and their 3rd game 7! They crushed in the previous two. Very early in the game, Brad Maxwell finds a lose puck between Nordique defenders, and gets himself a breakaway. He scores to give Calgary the early lead. The lead is short lived. A minute later, Doug Gilmour takes a Paul Coffey pass, and slides it under Brian Hayward to tie it. Both teams score on their first shots of the game. Rick Middleton scores on Calgaryís second shot of the game. Quebec goalie Karl Friesen looks shaky. 2-1 Flames after a period.


Brad Maxwell opens the scoring in game 7!

Quebec was probably the better team in the first, and that continued in the 2nd. They are controlling most of the play, and get rewarded when Cam Neely tipped a Mark Tinordi shot into the Flames goal. 2-2 tie halfway through the game. Near the end of the 2nd, Quebec takes 2 straight penalties, and find themselves short 2 men for almost 2 full minutes. The Flames fail to capitalize, ending the period tied. Is this a huge moment that will cost the Flames a title?

Both teams seem nervous. Penalty after penalty is called in the third, as no team wants to give a step to their opponents. 10 total minor penalties are called. Despite all the penalties, no real offense is generated. The third period shot total ends up just 7-6. With just under 3 minutes left, Doug Gilmour skates with the puck deep in Calgaryís zone. He throws the puck back to the point. Grant Ledyard takes a seeing eye wrist shot which avoids Hayward, and finds the back of the net! 3-2 Quebec with 2:26 remaining! Unbelievably, Cam Neely then takes a roughing penalty. Quebec spends the rest of the game short handed. Calgary doubles their shot total from 3 to 6 trying to tie it, but they canít. The Nordiques win it 3-2, and take the Stanley Cup!!

1988 NHL Offseason News and Notes

Here are the skating leaders from last season.



Here are the goalie leaders from last season.



Here are last seasons playoff leaders.



For the fifth time this decade, Craig MacTavish is the winner of the Selke Trophy as best defensive forward. Itís pretty safe to say that when he retires, Iím naming that award after him. Wayne Gretzky wins his 4th Hart Trophy and his first in 3 years. Doug Gilmour adds a Conn Smythe to his mantle.





Chicagoís Larry Robinson retires at the age of 36. Playing for the Blackhawks means you donít have much team success, but they were turning it around. This last season saw Chicago come very close to making the finals. Losing Robinson will hurt though. Larry finished his career with 11 double digit goal seasons. 724 points is a franchise record for defenseman. Larryís number 22 will be retired in Chicago.

Buffaloís Bill Hajt, a defenseman who spent his whole career as a Sabre has retired. He played 1280 games, registering 602 points and a 68 game rating. Heís 2nd all time in Sabres career scoring. Buffalo will retire his #22. Longtime Islanders goalie, Phil Myre is leaving the game at 39. He had a three year run in NYís net, registering a record of 112-29-9. Myre is the franchiseís career leader in wins and shutouts. The Islanders will retire his #1.



Winnipeg trades another stud defenseman.



Winnipeg at one time had incredible defenseman to build their team around. Chris Chelios, Scott Stevens, and Al MacInnis. Only one remains. Scott Stevens has been traded to the Bruins! Heís 24, and has 4 straight 60+ point seasons. Stevens also plays a great defensive and physical game. This is an amazing deal for the Bruins. Boston gives up Joe Mullen and a first round pick. Mullen is a 31 year old scoring winger, whose hit 40 goals twice. Heís been a point a game player the last few years, but I canít imagine him getting better. Heís a first liner at the moment, and if Winnipeg thinks this helps them win a cup next year, I understand it, but I donít like it for them. They give up the better player, whose 7 years younger.


Stevens heads to Boston.

The Rangers decide to trade Vinny Damphousse after a great playoff!



After 2 strong seasons with the Rangers, Vinny Damphousse is headed to Buffalo. A potential top line center, Damphousse was a key figure in the Ranger run to the third round of the 88 playoffs with 17 points in 15 games. Vinny is a really nice player to build around. Still only 20, his future is bright. I guess the Rangers wanted Jim Vesey. Heís 22 and looks like a 4th line center or checking line center. Heís older and less skilled then Damphousse. Heís got some offense in him, but it hasnít manifested into results yet. Hate this deal for NY. Doesnít make a lot of sense. The two players they receive don't have anywhere near the potential or substance they gave up.


The newest Sabre!

Teemu Selanne is the first European player to be selected first overall in the NHL draft. He goes to the Buffalo Sabres, who are one of 4 teams to pass on Mike Modano, who has the highest potential in the draft. Detroit snatches him up at 5! Itís a very talented draft, with potential stars all over the first round.



Two of the most talented players available, Sergei Zubov and Sergei Fedorov are selected back to back in the sixth round by Toronto and LA. I have no clue when and if they will come over to North America to play. We are getting closer to that period when Russians come over regularly, but I donít know how the game will handle it. Here is a look at top pick Teemu Selanne!



The Hockey Hall of Fame welcomed two player this year. North Stars star Rogie Vachon joins the hallowed halls. The 2nd winningiest goalie in NHL history, Vachon retired the year before Minnesota won the first of two straight Stanley Cups. Itís a bit ironic, that he and his teammate, the other inductee into Hall of Fame both missed out on the North Stars cup wins! Brad Park was a great defenseman. One thing I noticed while looking at his career was his 7 Hart trophy nominations. He lost to Marcel Dionne all the time!



The first team selected in the iron curtain draft, the Bruins, will sign 22 year old Russian defenseman Dmitri Mironov. A huge man, standing 6í4, 224 lbs, Mironov possesses a good shot, and a good brain. He will be solid right away, and looks to me like we will get significantly better with more time. Boston selected him 135th overall in 1984.



The LA Kings are the 2nd lucky team, and they just drafted Sergei Fedorov in the 6th round of this years draft. Heís the best qualifying player, and will immediately sign with the Kings. Fedorov is a 2.5/3.5 star player, so he will probably play as an 18 year old. His biggest asset at the moment is his defensive ratings. They are elite for an 18 year old. His offense isnít as good as you would expect, but that defense will make him very good right away!



The LA Kings have changed their logo and colours. Here is their new look.

I would have loved getting one of Selanne, Lidstrom, Blake, or Roenick, but getting the highest potential player in the draft Mike Modano and pairing him Mario Lemieux the Red Wings have a chance to be special if Mario can stay healthy. Every team in the top 8 should be happy with their picks except maybe Pittsburgh.

1988-89 Season Preview





Player Spotlight

The season preview states Kelly Hrudey of the New Jersey Devils and Buffalo's Patrick Roy are the best goalies in the league. I'm not so sure about that, but now would be a perfect time to take a quick look at their skill sets to see where the game is coming from.



Hrudey is very skilled. He's 27 years old, and in his prime. He's put together several very good regular seasons, and has a few long playoff runs under his belt. The results seem to suggest he is one of the leagues top goalies!



Young Patrick Roy sure looks the part, but his play suggests looks are deceiving. Roy's first two seasons saw a save percentage of .856. Last year that number was .875, but that's not good enough for a goalie who's supposed to be a top player in the league. Roy is certainly capable, but upto this point, he hasn't played like an elite goalie.

I'm not saying he's a bad player, but there were better players they could have picked.

1988-89 NHL Regular Season

Welcome back Mario Lemieux! In his first 11 games of the season, after his devastating injury last year, Mario records an amazing 28 points!! Because of the injury last year, Detroit had a terrible result, and was able to draft Mike Modano early in round one. If Modano develops, Detroit could have the team to beat for a long long time!


Lemieux gets off to a great start!

I should have noted this last season, but I did not notice. Gilbert Perreault has passed Stan Mikita in all time assists! Perreault finished last year one assists more then Mikitaís 1042! Guy Lafleur might catch them both in time, but for now, congrats to Gilbert Perreault! Hereís a look at the current top 10 all time assist leaders.



Speaking of Lafleur, Guy has just broken Gordie Howeís record!! Guy Lafleur is the NHLís all time point leader!! Guy recorded point on December 17th, 1988 with a goal against the North Stars. Here is the top 10 scorers in NHL history! Guy is at the top for the first time!



Doug Gilmour just recorded his 500th career assist in his 569th game! Thatís a pretty amazing pace! We are at a point where Gilmour has to be considered one of the top players in the NHL. Heís in the same category as Lemieux, Gretzky, and Yzerman. Gilmour has a Conn Smythe, a Selke, an Art Ross and a Hart trophy. He scores, he defends, and heís also third in the league in hits this year! Next preseason, itís time to take a look at his ratings! Hint, they are pretty good!


Gilmour does everything on the ice!

Scott Stevens has helped turned the Bruins into a Stanley Cup favourite. With two thirds of the season finished, the Bruins have hockeyís best record at 35-16-1. Scott Stevens is playing a huge part in the teams sudden rise to prominence. Stevens is on pace for a career best in goals, assists, and points, at more then a point a game. Heís got an 80 game rating and playing 26 mins a game. HOW COULD WINNIPEG TRADE THIS GUY! The Jets currently sit 4 games under .500 while Joe Mullen has 28 points in 49 gamesÖOUCH


Stevens is a force on the blueline!

Having one of the best goalies in the league hasnít helped the Sabres. Patrick Roy, who I spotlighted in the preseason, isnít playing up to his ratings. His game rating at the moment is 61, and his save percentage is just .876. His 17-30-6 mark doesnít look good either. Roy might be the most overrated player in the NHL at this point. Heís done nothing to suggest heís a good player.


How good is Patrick Roy?

In a year of milestoneís, lets go one more. Wayne Gretzky has just scored his 500th goal. Wayne gets the goal in his 712th game!! At age 28, Iíd say Wayne has a few more good years left. Gretzky, since his 3rd season, when he stopped getting hurt, has scored more then 50 every year, and never finished with under 128 points! Gilmour and Lemieux are certainly great, but when I look at Wayneís career, damn, itís hard to argue against him!


This card is for sale on ebay for 12 bucks!!

Final Standings



The Flyers win the presidentís trophy, now can they get out of the first round. Defending champs Quebec finish under .500, and a few years removed from having the worst run of all time, the Pens have fought their way back into the playoffs!

Iím a little surprised to see the LA Kings fall to last place. Sergei Fedorov played a full season in LA, and put up 67 points, but Denis Potvin has aged, and canít defend like he used to. 29 year old offensive defenseman Reijo Ruostsalanien still puts up points, but was never good in his own zone. Guy Lafleur had his first sub point a game season in forever. They couldnít outscore their opponents this year.

Detroit with a healthy Super Mario finish in 2nd. Mario was excellent, with 119 points, but not all world, best player in the league good. Iím very curious to see how the playoffs go in Detroit.

Edmonton makes the playoffs for the first time in a long time. Brian Leetch had a breakout year, and Curtis Joseph pushed starter Ron Hextall out of the net a lot with some great play. When Nick Lidstrom develops, the Oilers will be able to turn some heads!



Brent Sutter really stands out to me here. Heís been underrated for a while, but the league, and this guy, sure noticed his 55 goals this year. Sutter scored 49 goals last year, so obviously, I wasnít paying attention.

Wayne Gretzky wins the scoring title. He hasnít done that since 1985. Itís crazy to me that with Gretzky and Messier, Hartford canít get over .500!

Scott Stevens finished the season with 23 goals and 84 points. Joe Mullen had 20 goals and 42 points. This will go down as a famous one sided robbery! Buffaloís Vinny Damphousse had a great year on a bad team. He put up 98 points, while the players the Rangers got for him, combined for 43. Well done Sabres!
