While I was away on vacation last week, the New York Rangers and Columbus Blue Jackets decided to do a little transferring of players. Even if I was here, I probably wouldn’t have written anything until now. That’s commitment! The Rangers acquired Rick Nash, someone they were rumored to be pursuing months ago leading up to […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The offseason has been busy in the National Hockey Leagues offices, so as part of my parole, I am required to stay away from dogs and educate people about free agency signings. Wait, I thought I was Michael Vick’s blogging brother, Jimmy Vick. I forgot, I’m the guy who’s still making Michael Vick jokes in […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Sometimes you have to visit a few seedy places to find a bargain. You start out at Tiffany’s, of course. Your first round selection is an impeccably polished and set diamond, maybe something from the Pittsburgh Penguins line or the Philadelphia Flyers collection. The second round sees you browsing the more-than-respectable goods at Zales and […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
A lot of the talk surrounding this summer’s free agent activity has centered on the loyalty, or lack thereof, shown by players to their long-time employers. Martin Brodeur and the New Jersey Devils renewed their wedding vows with a 2-year contract that will see Brodeur in a Devils’ sweater through his 42nd birthday. Meanwhile, career […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Minnesota Wild finished under .500 at the end of this past season. They ranked 27th in the Powerplay and dead last in both Goals Per Game and team name. Things looked glum, but Minnesota just went Minnepop, and not because they say pop instead of soda. The hockey future is bright up in the Twin […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The National Hockey League draft came and went while I was on vacation, but I heard no one took my future boyfriend Mikhail Grigorenko until the 12th pick. What? Oh, I’m sorry, I guess the Islanders don’t need offense, my bad. Well, to be fair to the fake New York, they need everything. Don’t worry, there’s only […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Oilers continue to fill themselves with talent. After seemingly every other team wasted their first round draft pick on Defense, Edmonton went ahead and signed the most sought after free agent, the soon to be 22 year old Justin Schultz. At 6′ and 185 lbs, Schultz is the rare and beautiful offensive defenseman. He […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Today is the start of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, so maybe now would be a good time to discuss another prospect? Sure! As long time readers of this blog (Hello inmates at Rockview State Correctional Institution, keep those letters coming!) know, I dislike Defensemen (for fantasy purposes) the same way Hitler avoided drafting Jews […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Tall and thin, Mikhail Grigorenko is an 18 year old stud from Khabarovsk, Russia. He is perhaps too young for someone like me to project, although Patrick Roy (yes, that Patrick Roy) traded up to grab him for the Quebec Remparts in the Import Draft last summer. He rewarded Roy and the Remparts with 85 points in […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Detroit Red Wings just obtained Andrew Murray, a 32 year old with 40 points and -7 rating in 220 career games. Whoo! Okay, so, the real meat of this trade was that Detroit sent Brad Stuart to San Jose in exchange for a 2014 pick. There’s no point in speculating about a pick that […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
