Zak Dream Team (RCL 1) was the team of the week, scoring a perfect 22 points. KyHabs (The CHeap Seats) was right behind, notching 21 points. Here are the leaders in each category for the week, with the average in brackets: Goals (9): 21 TheMustaches (Bobby Hull Division), Toronto Make Beliefs (RCL 1) Assists (16): […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
The concussion monster dealt a death blow to Chris Pronger yesterday. Kinda wierd they would IR him for the season considering Philly could be playing for another 6+ months. The rumor is Pronger triggered a new CBA rule where once you go over 200 career concussions, you can’t play again that season. I for one am bummed […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’ve already preached about the current run Tim Thomas is on, but it’s worth preaching again. Since the start of the 2007-2008 season Timmay has 130 Wins to just 64 Losses. And his ratios are ridonkulous: .931SV%/2.35GAA/25SO… We are talking about 4+ seasons here and it really is remarkable considering he didn’t make his NHL debut […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
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?
