Lake Erie already ditched their racist logo and changed their team name

Well that didn’t take very long, huh? The Lake Erie Warriors, who debuted a less than appropriate logo the other day is already back tracking on that logo. They didn’t just change the logo either as they changed the entire damn name. I don’t think they particularly realize why they needed to change their logo […]

Is Brad Marchand worth the money he’s reportedly asking for?

After Steven Stamkos decided against taking his talents to the open market, it put a real damper on the offseason. Most hockey fans were hoping that Stamkos would try and leverage other teams to have them all fight for his services. This next offseason we may see a similar arms race for a less impactful player.

NHL will live stream one game each week on Twitter

Ever since Twitter debuted, live-tweeting sporting events has become a time-honored tradition. Going on Twitter and getting your news immediately is a luxury many enjoy.

Blues fans have watched several key pieces from the 2015-16 roster find new homes over the summer. Brian Elliott was traded to Calgary. David Backes signed with Boston.

Beer league goalie has some awesome Nintendo pads

Goalies in hockey are a rare breed and the sport allows – perhaps even encourages – them to show off some of their personality through the designs on their equipment. Many goalie masks around the NHL are art masterpieces and combine a goalie’s background with pop culture. Equipment in beer leagues tends to be more subdued, […]
