Each year the trade deadline in the NHL comes and goes, there aren’t a lot of changes and people are left scratching their heads. Are these general managers so risk averse that they don’t want to make major trades? A few trades involving Patrick Eaves, Tomas Jurco, Martin Hanzal and Ben Bishop have taken place already, […]
The Boston Bruins have fired their Stanley Cup winning coach Claude Julien in a bit of surprising news. For the past few years the conversations began to grow louder and louder for his removal. The consensus among many in the media was there wasn’t a good replacement for the long time coach. He has long […]
If you’re an NHL fan, chances are you’ll watch the sport no matter what. If they take fighting away, it isn’t as if you’ll walk away from the sport. If they take away the blue line it isn’t going to change your world. So why should you give a crap about what the league is […]
Life can be tough sometimes. Linus Ullmark, the goaltender for the Rochester Americans, had himself one heck of a game and had to find out that idiom the hard way. The Rochester Americans and Toronto Marlies played themselves a tight AHL affair. The game ended up going to the shootout. Colin Smith looked to be denied […]
The season for the Colorado Avalanche has been terrible thus far and because of it, some of their star players are starting to show some frustration. Gabriel Landeskog has been in multiple trade rumors this year and if these slashes on Brandon Sutter are any look into his psyche, the guy must be pretty darn […]
If you have been in the NHL for a long enough period of time, you have seen everything. Bad ice, delays of all kinds, fights that become especially brutal. For veteran goaltender of the Vancouver Canucks Ryan Miller, he is upset about one thing only after their game against the Chicago Blackhawks. The damn ice.
Making an immediate impact in the AHL is tough to do. You either have to be a highly rated prospect or grab a team’s attention in a completely different way. Kalle Kossila of the AHL’s San Diego Gulls may have just grabbed the Anaheim Ducks’ attention when he scored this absolutely insane goal.
It is getting harder and harder to score in hockey. Many want to shrink the goalie equipment but it looks like a player in the KHL has found the easiest way to get around a goalie is with some cold, hard cash.
In a move that seemed like a long time coming, Jack Capuano was fired as head coach of the New York Islanders. The Islanders have had a rough start to the year and it looked like at some point they were going to need a scapegoat to pin it all on. General Manager Garth Snow […]
While the Columbus Blue Jackets’ winning streak has ended, it doesn’t mean we can’t remember their streak fondly. It was one of the most improbable runs in the salary cap era of the NHL. While in the grand scheme of the season it may not mean much, many are hoping that it can elevate the […]
Hockey has had waves of popularity in the United States, which often coincide with the national team playing on a big stage. Hockey makes for an exciting product when you put pride in your own country into the mix as well, you get rabid fans. It’s time for the World Junior Championship to permanently jump into […]
Athletes are willing to do just about anything to stay in top physical shape. In the case of T.J. Oshie, you hook yourself up to an electrical current machine for 12 hours a day. Does it actually work?
The ECHL has always been known as a funky league. One moment you’ll see a bone-crunching hit and the next you’ll see a beautiful goal. It is a tad goofy.
It’s that time of year when the good teams in the NHL start pulling away from the bad ones. With that, it’s starting to become clear which teams need to place their playoff aspirations on hold and look forward to the upcoming 2017 NHL Draft. These three struggling franchises clearly need to start looking to the offseason […]
There is nothing quite like scoring a goal and celebrating accordingly. As the league has moved away from ridiculous celebrations, it is often left to the younger crowd to make up for the lameness of the players in the NHL. This little kid during the Capitals’ intermission has the right idea, celebrating like there isn’t […]
