I’m really beginning to hate concussions. They are fantasy poison because the players eventual return is always a huge mystery. And believe you me, it’s not going to get any better. We’re in the early years of the concussion era in hockey. The science of the brain (and brain injuries) has caught up and they are […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
A few days ago I summarized the Chicago Goaltending situation like this: “Don’t look now but brother man has saved 69 of the last 73 Shots directed his way (spanning 2 1/2 games). And believe me he has a great chance to earn alot more playing time going forward. Corey Crawford would have a tough […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I love how NHL.com headlines always calls out random milestones like they actually mean something. Last night it was the immortal Jose Theodore. What was his milestone you ask? He was playing in his 600th career NHL game… That’s it. To put into perspective just how worthless and inconsiquential a milestone like that is: He still needs 261 more […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
You know that feeling you get in your stomach when you get pulled over by a cop? Yeah that’s the feeling I got when I read this. Stupid clumsy Kunitz! I warned all Crosby owners (including myself) another concussion was a distinct possibility and that if it did happen it would likely end his season (again). The good news is […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
After the Ducks lost their 15th of 17 games Hiller lost his shizz.. Here was the exact quote after yet another loss to Minnesota on Sunday: “It looks like we’re there but we’re not really there,” he said after the game. “We’re kind of physically there but probably mentally already in the other zone or, […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Make no mistake, the new NHL realignment will be dominating hockey media for the next few days. I gotta admit it’s a pretty radical change in the structuring of the league. Geographically it makes sense, but what I don’t like is the fact that, essentially, you have a setup where the 14 “East Coast” teams get […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
After a slow start Matt Moulson has been hotter than an Arizona gardener in August. Saturday’s 4 Goal performance was a thing of beauty. (He has a knack for being in the right place at the right time – a true Goal scorer’s trait).. Coupled with Friday’s tally he’s now got a Goal in 4 straight games (7 […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I wrote this about J-Quick back on November 16: “And oh yeah, J-Quick is the most underrated Goalie in the NHL right now.” I for one second that notion. In fact I third, fourth, and fifth it. He single handedly beat Florida last night (41 Saves) to boost his season line to 11W/.936SV%/1.97GAA/4SO. I know […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Another rough night for Martin Brodeur leads me to believe it could be official. Most declared him dead after last season but I was still holding out hope. Unfortunately Hope turned out to be a 300lb alcoholic. Just look at the stats: 5-5/.899/2.81/0SO. That is horrawful. Another red flag is the fact that Johan Hedberg has […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
On November 15th Roberto Luongo had one of those phantom UBI’s pop up and the next night Cory Schneider got lit up by the Blackhawks. It was a bad start to say the least, but since then he’s given up 4 Goals in 5 games (incl 2 Shutouts). Last night he saved 47 of 48. […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
