Do you anticipate the Montreal Canadiens can action for a agrarian agenda atom and abruptness a lot of bodies this season? — @TJRinger1
I anticipate they can accomplish a push, and if they do, it would be surprising, but I’m not accessible to say they will. I’m not accessible to change my assessment on the Canadiens afterwards bristles amateur (3-1-1). Cream eventually rises to the top, and I don’t anticipate the Canadiens accept abundant bottomward the average to break on a advance to accomplish the Stanley Cup Playoffs this season. Centermost abyss is capital to success in the NHL. Montreal doesn’t accept it. We already see that the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins are for absolute in the Atlantic Division. We accepted that. The Tampa Bay Lightning accept had an odd alpha to the division with a arbitrary schedule, but they’ll acquisition a accent and they’ll acquisition their groove. I apprehend the aforementioned of the Florida Panthers. I aloof don’t see the Canadiens accepting abundant to accomplishment advanced of any of those four teams. But what I do like from the Canadiens is the assignment belief and the ascendancy they comedy with. We’ve apparent it in at atomic four of their bristles amateur so far (maybe not abundant in the 3-0 accident to the Los Angeles Kings). They’re befitting their shots adjoin bottomward (26.6 per game) and accepting pucks to the net (36.0 shots on ambition per game), and their disturbing appropriate teams (13.6 percent ability play, 76.9 percent amends kill) should advance aback defenseman Shea Weber allotment to the lineup, acceptable in December.

Is the Ottawa Senators’ appropriate alpha a aftereffect of hot players or a adumbration at a acknowledged approaching for the organization? — @NDeOreos
Both, which is why I don’t anticipate it will aftermost and why I appetite to accumulate watching.
Let’s attending at centermost Chris Tierney as an example. He has eight credibility (two goals, six assists) on a six-game point band to alpha the season. The abandoned added time Tierney had a point in at atomic bristles beeline NHL amateur was in his amateur season, aback he had six credibility (two goals, four assists) in a five-game band from April 1-9, 2015. His alpha this division could be a assurance he’s architecture on what he did aftermost season, aback he had an NHL career-high 40 credibility (17 goals, 23 assists) in 82 amateur for the San Jose Sharks. Does that beggarly Tierney is now a top scorer, or is he aloof a amateur who is on a hot band to alpha the season? He’s apparently about in between.
The Senators can’t apprehend defensemen Thomas Chabot (two goals, six assists) and Maxime Lajoie (four goals, three assists), a rookie, to break as advantageous as they’ve been in the aboriginal six games. But that’s not the point. They’re hot now and they’re assuming signs that they ability accept a adventitious to alpha a aggressive defensemen accumulation in the post-Erik Karlsson era.
Also, Brady Tkachuk, the No. 4 aces in the 2018 NHL Draft, has six credibility (three goals, three assists) in four games. The advanced is assuming hockey IQ (stopping in advanced of the net, axis and cat-and-mouse for the puck, arch up, award bendable spots in the defense) of addition who is abundant earlier than 19. He’ll air-conditioned off at some point, and the Senators will booty a hit in the abbreviate appellation for it, but he’s already assuming they weren’t amiss to aces him area they did.
Keith Kinkaid is arena outstanding for the New Jersey Devils. Is it time for the Devils to accede trading Cory Schneider aback he’s healthy? — @rudshar98
No. Trading Schneider advancing off hip anaplasty would be difficult. The bazaar for goalies is already thin, let abandoned because one advancing off above surgery. I wouldn’t accede it anyway. Kinkaid is solid, but he’s never done it as a No. 1 for a abounding division and he bare to be replaced in the playoffs aftermost division afterwards acceptance nine goals in two amateur (was pulled in one). Kinkaid is 29 years old, so it’s not like he’s a young, advancing goalie who is accessible to be a No. 1 for the aing 5-10 years. I like him. I’d appetite him on my team. He’s a absolute fill-in, absolute stop-gap. I won’t aphorism out the achievability he could be added than that, but the Devils accept a No. 1 goalie. It’s Schneider, who hasn’t yet had the affluence of actuality a advantageous No. 1 for an continued aeon with the Devils additionally putting a acceptable aggregation on the ice in advanced of him. The achievement is for Schneider, 32, to be absolutely adaptable and advantageous afresh aback he allotment because he had the anaplasty on his hip in May. Kinkaid is authoritative it an ideal bearings for the Devils by accomplishing his job, which allows Schneider to appear aback at the appropriate speed. Drillmaster John Hynes can assignment Schneider aback in slowly, but aback he’s absolutely up and running, he should be the No. 1, or at atomic assignment in bike with Kinkaid.

What is amiss with the Los Angeles Kings’ ability play? — @Pwruzzo
The Kings are 0-for-21 on the ability play. I went aback and rewatched their 11 ability plays from the accomplished three amateur to see if annihilation stood out to me. A few things did:
1) They’re not award advanced Ilya Kovalchuk. He’s cat-and-mouse in the larboard circle, but the Kings are disturbing to beat the bogie to his ancillary to set him up for the one-timer, which can be dangerous. Abandoned already on the 11 ability plays I watched did they affix for that one-timer.
2) The top assemblage isn’t cutting enough. The Kings accept 27 shots on ambition on their 21 ability plays. They charge more. Amid defenseman Drew Doughty and centermost Anze Kopitar, I saw a lot of passing, but not about abundant eyes up and attractive to shoot.
3) I like the comedy aback Kopitar finds advanced Jeff Carter bustling up in the aperture for a quick one-timer, but they haven’t seemed to acquisition that comedy enough, or they’re not active it enough. They should attending for it more. Carter has a quick absolution and a acceptable one-timer. That comedy additionally armament the adversary to annual the low slot, which could accessible added allowance for a aerial bond canyon to Kovalchuk.
4) Their area entries can be cleaner.
What are your thoughts about the New York Rangers and David Quinn so far? How does Quinn’s appearance on and off the ice, including practice, analyze with Alain Vigneault? — @BAbassAle
It’s too aboriginal to say too abundant about drillmaster Quinn and the Rangers. This is activity to be a assignment in advance all season. What I like about Quinn, though, is he’s captivation players answerable by demography abroad ice time. He’s already aching defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk, assiduously Pavel Buchnevich and Vladislav Namestnikov, and benched centermost Kevin Hayes for continued stretches in a 3-1 accident to the Buffalo Sabres on Oct. 6. He’s admiring of what he calls a player’s “bank account,” acceptation how abundant they’ve already done in the NHL, but he’s not clearing or cat-and-mouse for players to acquisition their game. That’s a little altered from Vigneault, who would accord added elbowroom to adept players and seemed to be harder on adolescent players. Vigneault won a lot of amateur that way. Quinn hasn’t won with any of these players in the NHL, so he’s captivation anybody answerable in the aforementioned way, aggravating to amount things out forth the way.
The big aberration that I see from Quinn is in practice. You can’t advice but apprehension him and apprehend him. He’s loud. He’s quick to stop convenance if he doesn’t like how a assignment is actuality run. He harps on accepting pucks and bodies to the net. He’ll accompany the players over to the whiteboard three or four times in practice. There’s a lot of teaching and a lot of energy. That’s allotment of the rebuild, though. Quinn was brought in because he’s a communicator, because he excels alive anon with the players, both in accumulation and 1-on-1 settings. Vigneault operated differently.
Which aboriginal division abrasion will accept the better appulse on the aggregation affected? Paul Stastny? Corey Perry? Corey Crawford? Elias Pettersson? Justin Schultz? Certainly missing a few more. — @chris_szimanski
You charge attending at No. 1 goalies, top-two centers and No. 1 defensemen whenever baronial the appulse of injuries. From the account you used, that includes Stastny, Crawford and Pettersson. The acceptable account for the Chicago Blackhawks is they’re acquisitive Crawford (concussion symptoms) can alpha this week, possibly Thursday adjoin the Arizona Coyotes (8:30 p.m. ET; NBCSCH, FS-A, NHL.TV). The bad account is the Vegas Golden Knights anticipate Stastny, their No. 2 center, could be out for two months with a lower-body injury. It’s additionally cryptic how continued Pettersson, who has bound become the Vancouver Canucks’ No. 1 center, will be out with his blow symptoms.
You’re missing a few added notable injuries, including Florida Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo (right knee), Kings goalie Jonathan Quick (lower body), Anaheim Ducks centermost Ryan Getzlaf (groin), Carolina Hurricanes goalie Scott Darling (lower body), Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Seth Jones (knee), and Coyotes centermost Alex Galchenyuk (lower body). From that list, I anguish best about the Kings and Quick. Jack Campbell has had a boxy time in his accomplished two starts, acceptance eight goals on 36 shots adjoin Ottawa and Toronto. With the Kings disturbing to score, that puts added burden on Campbell.
