Sheesh, remember when Tyler Toffoli was a valuable forward who couldn’t seem to finish the many chances he created? Now he’s just … finishing them. If he keeps this up, he might get some kind of “Mortal Kombat”-themed nickname.Boston Bruins NHL Design Face Masks
Sean Leahy, NHL writer: Connor McDavid. His pal Leon Draisaitl has his own strong case, but the Oilers captain has been incredibly dominant this season. In over 500 minutes at 5-on-5, his expected goals (27.82) leads all forwards, per Natural Stat Trick. Also, of Edmonton’s 103 goals scored, he’s had a direct hand in 53 of them (17 goals, 36 assists).NHL Design Face Masks | NHL Design Face Coverings
GM: B-minus. The Flyers were dealt a blow this offseason with Matt Niskanen's surprise retirement. GM Chuck Fletcher was caught off guard by the move, and didn't (or couldn't) adequately replace Niskanen's role on the top pairing alongside Ivan Provorov, which is affecting the team early. Otherwise, it's hard to fault the Philly GM for having an uneventful season so far. This is a team on the cusp -- soon reaping the rewards of years of good drafting.
Coach: B-plus. The Blackhawks were thrown several curveballs on the eve of their season. The captain, Jonathan Toews, was taking a leave of absence to deal with a mysterious illness. Kirby Dach, maybe Chicago's star of the bubble, would be sidelined a while. So too would Alex Nylander, while the health of veterans Andrew Shaw and Brent Seabrook remained murky. Oh, and the team finally admitted to its rebuild, which didn't sit well with all veterans. Most people pegged Chicago as a bottom-dweller this season. Somehow it's in the playoff mix.
