Puck Dumps 11/20/14

What everyone is talking about It seems a little personal to me, but a lot of people are talking about Jack Johnson of the Blue Jackets going bankrupt. It has something to do with his parents taking out loans against his contract and not the lavish lifestyle central Ohio provides. Anyways, a blogger making jokes […]

What everyone is talking about The Maple Leafs were crushed yesterday. Who are these Predators, who can score 9 goals in an evening? It probably doesn’t matter any more than that they are just another team playing the Maple Leafs. Sportsnet, CBC, TSN Scoreboard Boston 2, St. Louis 0 - Patrice Bergeron, in one of the […]


Hockey in Arizona is working

  The NHL’s number one goal for expanding into parts of the country that don’t seem to make much sense by a reasonable person’s estimation was to broaden the game’s footprint. There were already fans of hockey, say in Saskatoon, and they were already loyal to the Flames or Oilers or even now the Jets, […]

What everyone is talking about With a pretty quiet night last night in the hockey world, a couple outlets instead have chosen to focus on the Hockey Hall of Fame, which just wrapped up induction weekend. Who got in, and who will get there next year? Fox, Yahoo Scoreboard Tampa Bay 5, New York Rangers […]

What everyone is talking about Has anything changed since my late Dump last night? Why, yes, in fact. While a couple of outlets are still talking about the Canadiens’ big night (TSN with a corrected headline, NHL.com) There was another big night that captured the imagination. Sharks rookie Troy Grosenick started his career with a shutout […]

What everyone is talking about Well, ok, so maybe people talked about something else this morning (by the way, scores will be from Saturday in the scoreboard) but for right now, it’s the Montreal Canadiens, who are presently unstoppable. They went out and whupped the Red Wings in Hockeytown tonight. The Habs might be insufferable, if […]

What everyone is talking about Olli Maatta was diagnosed with cancer as the season began. He had his tumor removed, and is ready to rejoin the Penguins. There is nothing scarier than cancer, and it’s great to see the young man ready to make a full recovery. Fox, Sporting News.  Scoreboard Columbus 4, Philadelphia 3 […]


The NHL has the mumps, and I don’t know what to say

In case you hadn’t heard, an epidemic of the mumps has started in the Western Conference in the NHL, with infections being reported with the Anaheim Ducks and the Minnesota Wild. It’s 2014, and grown men are getting the mumps. I’m not even sure what the mumps are, but I AM pretty sure that mumps […]

What everyone is talking about The top team in the east so far is the Montreal Canadiens. As it turns out, they have a fairly significant rivalry with the Boston Bruins, which is great news for American journalists. Sure, it’s a French Canadian team that has success, but there is a way to relate it […]

  What everyone is talking about The potential move into Las Vegas has long been rumored, whether it be the Coyotes abandoning Phoenix, or the league’s seemingly inevitable expansion. Now, those rumors have expanded to include a potential new owner group: The Maloofs, the former reviled owners of the NBA’s Sacramento Kings. Nobody is excited […]

  What everyone is talking about Top prospect Connor McDavid injured his hand during a fight last night, which will probably affect his draft status, and will almost certainly ignite circular and tedious arguments for and against fighting in hockey. We all win! Sports Illustrated, Sportsnet, CBC Scoreboard New Jersey 3, Minnesota 1 – Fun fact: Neither of […]

BMR Mailbag: While I was out

  We haven’t done a BMR mailbag in a while, mostly, I think, because the BMR e-mails don’t typically come to me (thevictimesATgmail.com!) and Kevin Schultz and I aren’t really on speaking terms. Still, my inbox BLEW UP over the past week and a half. Let’s take a look at some e-mails from over the […]

  I have returned! Unfortunately, that means so has the Daily Dump. Did you like the surprise return of Schultz, Loser Domi and JR? I hope so. Thanks to both for stepping in and keeping this little corner of the internet lively and fun. What everyone is talking about Seth Griffith had an excellent goal. […]

An Open Letter from Carter Ashton

Hello, Everyone. My name is Carter Ashton, and I was just given a 20 game suspension. I’d like to explain myself, because I think that I owe my fans an explanation. I tested positive for a substance that is not approved for human use in neither Canada nor the U.S. If I was from one […]
