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?
It’s been quite a week for injuries and Coach firings. It’s funny how firings seem to be contagious in all the sports. First it was Davis Payne of the St. Louis Blues being replaced by Ken Hitchcock. After that went well (and lit a fire under the now streaking Blues) suddenly GM’s around the league felt […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Let’s face facts: In his first full week back, after missing an entire year, Sidney Crosby was the best player in the league. His line for the week: 2G/6A/+7/8PIM/2PPP/15SOG. That’s called game changer. If you own him, your team BC (before Crosby) was an entire notch below where your team is now. Borderline playoff teams that own […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s the Red Wings and the Bruins on NBC! This means that even the 90 year old couple who has one of the first color televisions ever built can watch a hockey game. Sure they may have to adjust their rabbit ears to get a good picture, but they can watch hockey nonetheless. For those of us who love hockey […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Another light night in the NHL and another win by the Leaf’s, meaning 24 straight hours of “can the Leaf’s make the playoffs?” Just ask me dummies (ahem…Dreger….ahem). “The Toronto Maple Leafs are back and better than ever! In order to be reborn, you must die completely!” Hey, how did you get into this conversation […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s official, Sidney Crosby is back. The headlines are infinite: NHL.com – Sid-sational Debut! TSN.Com – Mid-Season Form! Yahoo – Welcome Back, Kid! (Not much effort there Yahoo). NBC Sports – Super Mario? No, Super Sidney! FOX Sports – Crosby Thrills (btw, check out their site. Every headline is 2 words or less it’s like […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
