Fixing the Edmonton Oilers

Fixing the Edmonton Oilers

Remember when the Oilers were good? Long since removed from their dynastic domination of the NHL, the Edmonton Oilers are a shell of their former greatness. While other teams in the Western Conference scratch and claw for playoff positioning, the Oilers are 30 wins behind division leaders. They are remarkably bad, having lost an astounding [...]

Who’s the Best Goaltender in the NHL?

Who’s the Best Goaltender in the NHL?

Ask any NHL fan or analyst who the best player in the league is, and you’ll hear plenty of the same names repeated over and over again. Crosby, Stamkos, Toews, Kane, and Tavares. Ask which goaltender is the best, and suddenly the list gets quite a bit longer. Rinne, Quick, Price, Raask, Bishop, Bobrovsky, and [...]

Hall of Shame: HHOF Appoints Former Toronto Crack Mayor Rob Ford to Board of Directors

Hall of Shame: HHOF Appoints Former Toronto Crack Mayor Rob Ford to Board of Directors

The Hockey Hall of Fame has announced that it has elected Rob Ford (yes, that Rob Ford) to its Board of Directors. I’m not one for sanctimonious browbeating, and Ford has no doubt suffered enough under the suffocating media coverage that enveloped him many months ago. He’s also enduring rehab and abdominal cancer, so I’m [...]

Ryan Reaves Pulls His Own Tooth From Bench

Ryan Reaves Pulls His Own Tooth From Bench

Teeth are highly overrated, don’t you think? Each time the Blues and Blackhawks meet, it promises to be physical and chippy to say the least. Sunday Night’s game at the United Center was no different with just a week to go in the regular season and significant playoff implications on the line. During the second [...]

NHL Coaches on the Brink

NHL Coaches on the Brink

Playoff races are heating up as the regular season hits the home stretch. Consequently, a select few coaches are also feeling the heat. A few coaches that could find themselves in the unemployment line come season’s end. Todd McLellan – San Jose Seat Temperature: Scalding This may be a slam dunk firing. The Sharks are [...]

WATCH: Dustin Byfuglien Devastates J.T Miller with Cross-Check to Head

WATCH: Dustin Byfuglien Devastates J.T Miller with Cross-Check to Head

The Department of Player Safety has already confirmed Winnipeg Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien will have a hearing (and probably a suspension) after performing this amateur chiropractic adjustment on J.T Miller: Byfuglien’s crosscheck is irresponsible on many different levels. The Jets are right in the middle of the most critical juncture of their homestretch push for [...]

Bruins All But End Panthers’ Playoff Hopes

Bruins All But End Panthers’ Playoff Hopes

It won’t sit well with the masses, but it appears the Boston Bruins are destined for the Stanley Cup Playoffs once again, despite a season of underachievment. The Bruins upended the Florida Panthers at TD Garden 3-2 Tuesday Night adding another two points to their wildcard lead over the Panthers and Senators. Florida now trails [...]

Watch: Puck Gets Stuck in the Visor of Stars’ Patrik Nemeth

Watch: Puck Gets Stuck in the Visor of Stars’ Patrik Nemeth

The odds of this happening in a hockey game have got to be much worse than one in a million. Last night in the Dallas Stars’ loss to the Calgary Flames, a blooper happened that may never be repeated. When the Flames attempted to dump the puck in the Stars zone it took a funny [...]

The Suite Life of a Live NHL Game

The Suite Life of a Live NHL Game

The St. Louis Blues are one of my favorite things in life, for better or worse. Scottrade Center has been like my second home since I was about 14 years old (many moons ago). As a transplanted fan living in Denver, my opportunities to attend games are obviously few and far between each season. I [...]

Hockey Analyst Brian Engblom Takes Puck to the Head, Gets Stitches, Returns to Game

Hockey Analyst Brian Engblom Takes Puck to the Head, Gets Stitches, Returns to Game

NBC hockey analyst Brian Engblom last night took a puck to the forehead during the Penguins-Sharks game. Of course being Sidney Crosby and his pin point accuracy, Engblom took it dead center of the forehead. Obviously you’d think Engblom would need a substitution and be rushed to hospital. Not this analyst. He stepped away, got [...]
