2001-2002 NHL Season Preview

Big E's in the Big Apple, Jaromir Jagr is a Washington Capital and the Dominator will be guarding the goal for Detroit. Hang On! The puck's about to drop on another hard hitting NHL season.

Stars Changed Galaxies
Many of your fave stars have changed galaxies over the summer and will be playing with different teams. Philadelphia traded Eric Lindros and his six concussions to the New York Rangers. Jaromir Jagr moved from Pittsburgh to the Washington Capitals. Dominek Hasek and Brett Hull are now flying for the Detroit Red Wings - and that whiner, Alexei Yashin has a $90 million contract to play for the New York Islanders. One of the game's biggest stars won't be playing anywhere this season. Colorado Avalanche center, Peter Forsberg, is taking the season off to get healthy. In recent years he's had a ruptured spleen and surgery on both ankles.

Stanley Cup Favorites

  • The Colorado Avalanche ~ No Peter Forsberg or Ray Bourque this season but they still have moutains of talent. Joe Sakic, Rob Blake and Patrick Roy are reasons the Avs will be favorites to kiss the Cup again this season.
  • The Philadelphia Flyers ~ They added a bunch of young players they snagged when they unloaded Eric Lindros. And to sweeten the pot they grabbed free agent Jeremy Roenick. If Roman Cechmanek keeps stopping the puck, the Flyers are gonna be tough to beat.
  • St. Louis Blues ~ The addition of Doug Weight means the Blues have some very heavy expectations. With Chris Pronger and Al Macinnis, St. Louis has the best pair of D-men in the NHL. The only question - who's guarding the net?

    World's Collide
    The NHL will be taking a two week break in February so the top superstars can play for their countries at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah. The games are played on those massive international ice rinks so you'll see exciting, end-to-end action - but there'll be less hitting and no fights.
