The Oilers don’t have any prospects

The Edmonton Journal is going through their top 25 Edmonton prospects, and today, they made it to #9. If I didn’t know any better, I would guess that they don’t like him, and that he might not actually be any good. It starts with the headline. If slow and steady wins the race, Edmonton Oilers prospect […]

Calgary aspires to build Baymax

Calgary is attempting to build a multiuse facility to house, as it’s principle tenants, the Calgary Flames and Calgary Stampeders. As is always the case,  there will be gnashing of teeth and much back and forth over the funding of this facility, and where that funding will be sourced, and for how much. It will cost […]

NHL.Com pun writers are on vacation

Every day during the season, I would check to see bow a terrible pun was shoehorned into the day’s headline. I almost admired whoever t was that was in charge of contorting player names enough to sound like they could be another real word. In that spirit, I’m glad the guy who does it is […]

A guide to talking about Patrick Kane

Don’t. Really, don’t. Unless it’s to say “Boy, I hope investigators get to the bottom of this.” Sexual assault and rape are similarly among the most traumatic and underreported crimes in the long list of horrible things humanity does to itself. Not only is there the trauma of the initial attack, but beyond the physical evidence, […]

Oh no, is this really happening?

  After seeing the success of the Coyotes, the NHL seems to be on board with expanding hockey in the desert. Never mind the fact that Vegas has a transient population with no tie to pro sports in general or the NHL specifically. No matter that they were one of the hardest hit towns by […]

John Gibson is a cool kid

Anaheim netminder John Gibson has created a sensation with his new helmet (by sensation, I mean that it appeared on Puck Daddy) because everyone loves old video games. Pretty much anything involving the old games is going to be a winner, really popular with everyone. I mean, come on, Gibson has Duck Hunt on his helmet. […]

Ron MacLean is so high right now

I mean, I get it. The Oilers have been drafting at the top of the draft continuously for years now.  They should definitely have a boatload of talent at this point, and they undoubtedly do, but there is a reason that they keep making picks at the top of the draft. It’s because they can’t […]

Quebec wants a team back

Quebec has been without a team since the Nordiques moved to Denver to become the Avalanche. I mean, they don’t even have a team in the CFL. There is nothing going on in Quebec. That’s part of the reason, I imagine, that Quebecor made a bid for an expansion team. There is already an arena, waiting […]

Scott Darling is the most hipster

Scott Darling looks like this on purpose. Just like, every day, this is what he looks like. Tank top, that hair cut, beard, and ink up and down his arm. I bet he listens to alt+J and eats vegan flatbread pizzas. Scott Darling has signed a contract with the Quebec Nordiques for 2015-16.

Only in Toronto

Today was the first day of free agency, which generally is an awesome, fun filled day, but the crazy factor was kicked up a notch by the fact that Toronto traded away their best player. For the third year in a row, and despite a down year, Phil Kessel led the Maple Leafs in scoring. […]
