Wednesday’s NHL Games……….NFL Picks

December 9th, 2008

Wednesday Games:

TBL @ BUF : Take Sabres, Look for the Bolts struggles to continue against the Sabres in Buffalo. The team has major dissension issues and look for the Sabres to take advantage of that.

PIT @ NJD : Take NJD, this will be very close game and could go either way, edge to Jersey at home

BOS @ WSH: Take Bost, much better team. Wash has a tun of injuries with up to 10 regulars out.

NYR @ ATL : Take NYR, Even Atltanta at home wont help them against the Rangers offense.

CGY @ DET : Take Det , this will be a great game to watch , once again edge to Wings at home.

OTT @ CHI : Take OTT, Hawks have struggles as of late and blown some leads to good teams.

PHX @ DAL : Take Take Dallas, At home against a weak team that has played poorly on most nights. No energy soft looking team.

STL @ ANA : Take Ducks, At Home the Ducks play much tougher and better game.

All this starts the week of December. 11. 2008!

LET ‘S MAKE SOME MONEY AND LET THE EXCITEMENT BEGIN!

For hockeygodonline,

I’m Jeremy Frost.

GOLD: Green Bay (-1.5) @ Jacksonville
-Jacksonville QB David Garrard is simply awful this year. His inability to get on the same page as his receivers combined with the fact that the Packers are still in the wild card hunt are evidence that this will be a one sided affair in favour of the Pack!
PICK: Green Bay Packers

SILVER: New Orleans @ Chicago (-3.0)
-The Saints may be impressive from time to time in the confines of their own dome, but I don’t like them in the windy city as they tend to play poorly in cold climates.
PICK: Chicago Bears

BRONZE: Minnesota @ Arizona (-3.5)
-Arizona will have no issue beating the spread against a lacklustre Vikings D. I have no doubt Peterson runs for 100+ yards but the high flying offence of the Cardinals prevails in this one.
PICK: Arizona Cardinals

UPSET: Tennessee (-3.5) @ Houston
-I hope everyone has come to grips with the fact that the Titans are not at all what they look like in the standings. Over rated versus under rated. Under rated wins.
PICK: Houston Texans

Tuesdays NHL Games and Picks:

December 9th, 2008

Tonight’s Games:

NYI @ PHI : Take Philly , they are are at home and have been playing well and the Islander well they are the Islanders!

CAL @ MTL : Take HABS, this game being in Montreal gives them the edge , but look for this to be a close game. Flames will try to run over the softer Habs.

VAN @ NSH : Take Canucks, Why ? Good teams in the NHL bounce back after a loss and the Canucks are a good team this season with out a doubt.

LAK @ COL : Take Kings, Why? I like the young fresh legs on the Kings roster and how hard they play the game. This will be close game but I give the edge to Kings.

Avery on the Carpet………….Leafs News

December 9th, 2008

The decision on Dallas Stars  Sean Avery will be discussed at a meeting with Owner Tom Hicks, Co-Gm’S Brett Hull and Les Jackson and team President Jeff Cogan. There is no question that Hull will be pushing for Avery to be forgiven. The fact that coach Dave Tippett threw Avery under the bus with his public comments soon after Avery’s incident in Calgary makes this even more messy.

Stars owner Hicks told reporters at the NHL board of governors’ meetings Monday that Avery is “a troubled young man” and that the team is considering all it’s options moving forward and would not lean one way or another.

“We’re having a meeting Wednesday afternoon when I get back and I don’t want to say anything ahead of that”. But we’re going to look at all the alternatives. We’re going to have some recommendations from all concerned”.

Avery has no options available to him except sit back and wait, go to the Dr’s appointments and hope that he can resume his playing career this year. To do that there has to be either a massive turn around in the Stars room or another team has to be willing to listen to the remorse that Avery claims to have and take the chance on the gritty forward.

LEAF WATCH:

The trade to land Blues forward Lee Stempniak had looked like a clear winner when made just before Brian Burke took over the Leafs Cliff Fletcher. But based on Stempniak’s play since arriving in Toronto it now looks like that original thought is quickly fading. The Leafs beat the Islanders last night to get back in the win column, but this does not change the fact that their team is soft as ever and in desperate need of an injection of energy and grit.

Burke has his own roster freeze in place for the Holiday’s and he will not be able to make any deals until the New Year. When that time comes look for there to be several moves leading up to the  trade deadline. This team has relied on Russian players that although skilled have very little drive and pride. As he did in Anaheim, Burke will clear the decks with Russian players and only keep those European players that compete or score on a consistent basis. So with saying that say goodbye likely to Antopov and Ponikarovsky and possibly D Kaberle as well. Hagman and Fletcher’s summer trade for Grabovski from Montreal,  he seems to have a very high skill set and can score with flash along with some competitiveness to his game both should remain.
