Early-season NHL pulse check

Anaheim Ducks

John Gibson is off to a hot start, and Trevor Zegras is getting more comfortable each and every game, but I need to see a whole lot more from this team because Gibson has struggled with consistency over the last couple of seasons.

Arizona Coyotes

The Coyotes are bad. I mean really bad. However, goaltender Karel Vejmelka adds intrigue to an otherwise bleak situation. Now, I don’t know a whole lot about the 24-year-old goaltender, but he has pedigree and could throw a wrench into any plan that involves blindly betting against the Coyotes.

Boston Bruins

We’ve only seen the Bruins once so far this season, and they looked as good as ever. It’s possible that a door might open for the Bruins to become the class of the Atlantic Division once again, but it’s all going to come down to goaltending.

Buffalo Sabres

When I saw pundits and fans suggesting that the Sabres might actually be good, I thought it was sarcasm. I’m still not sure if it is or not, but I’ll give people the benefit of the doubt. This team is an abomination.

Calgary Flames

It’s been only two games, but the Flames have looked nothing like the team that I projected them to be. Maybe this team is broken.
