Tide of Pacific stays tilted toward California teams

Wednesday, 07.16.2014 / 4:40 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

The new-look Pacific Division broke into two tiers for the 2013-14: The California teams were on one level and the other four clubs were far off the pace.

Depending on what happens with the curious case of the San Jose Sharks' rebuilding project, it looks like those tiers could be in place again in 2014-15. The Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks will expect to contend for the Stanley Cup, and the Sharks might be in the group of potential champions if their summer makeover doesn't reach extreme status.

Anaheim and San Jose were one victory away from knocking Los Angeles out of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Kings return nearly everyone and will be seeking a third NHL title in four seasons.

The other four teams are trying to return to the playoffs. Given the way teams in the Central Division have loaded up, it might be difficult for the Pacific to squeeze a fourth back into the postseason.

Center upgrades add punch to loaded Central Division

Wednesday, 07.16.2014 / 1:47 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

The Central Division has been the center of attention in the NHL this offseason.

Nearly every team in the division has upgraded at the center position, and the two that didn't, the Colorado Avalanche and Minnesota Wild, will likely be moving one of the top young players in the League to the middle on a more permanent basis.

The result of a flurry of trades and signings has the Central looking like the toughest division in the NHL for the 2014-15 season. Though the Chicago Blackhawks still look like the leader of the group, they finished third in the division standings last season and might only have the fourth- or even fifth-best collection of centers despite the presence of all-world pivot Jonathan Toews.

Five teams made the postseason in 2013-14 and the Nashville Predators missed by three points. Any of those six teams will be confident they can be a playoff team in the coming season, and 95 points might not be out of the question for any of them.

Bruins on outside as Atlantic teams make changes

Wednesday, 07.16.2014 / 10:18 AM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Salary-cap constraints have forced Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli to watch from the sidelines as the rest of the GMs in the Atlantic Division have made efforts to improve their rosters in an attempt to catch the Bruins.

Steve Yzerman (Tampa Bay Lightning), Dave Nonis (Toronto Maple Leafs), Dale Tallon (Florida Panthers) and Tim Murray (Buffalo Sabres) have been among the busiest managers in the League since the market opened at noon ET on July 1, combining to sign or acquire via trade 18 players.

Marc Bergevin (Montreal Canadiens) and Bryan Murray (Ottawa Senators) most notably have been involved in some significant trades involving veteran players. Meanwhile, Ken Holland has struggled to find players willing to take the Detroit Red Wings' money.

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.

— Florida Panthers director of player development Brian Skrudland on defenseman Aaron Ekblad's performance at development camp
