Nino’s Concussion So what’s the deal? Was the hit by Dallas Stars D Mark Fistric a clean hit or not? Do we know if Brendan Shanahan has called the Stars to discuss the hit? Has he seen the video from the various angles that are available? Is that a head hit? Is it suspendable? Personally, I would think so. But what does the NHL think? Was this a case of a “Welcome to the N...

Video: Analyzing the Mark Fistric shoulder-to-head hit

By Alexander Monaghan President On a night with 12 games on the docket, it should come to no surprise that we have not only one, but two controversial hits. Regarding the Jordin Tootoo incident we took a more down-the-middle approach. However, the shoulder-to-head hit from Dallas Stars defender Mark Fistric is a bit more subjective than most. New York Islanders forward Nino Niederreiter...

Bill Meltzer: Star Gazing: 12/4/11

The Dallas Stars are the best comeback team in the NHL, but even they can only go to the well so many times. On a night where the injury-depleted team was looking to get a quick jump and play from ahead against the lowly New York Islanders (who were playing on back-to-back nights), Dallas once again put itself in position to have to chase the game. Even when the Islanders built...

What do the 2011-12 NHL season and The Essential Billy Joel have in common? Both are full of questionable hits. Yeah. Billy Joel sucks. Deal with it.

Richard Cloutier: THE TRUTH About NHL Realignment

I know the truth... Don't ask me how I know or why I know. I suspect Brendan Shanahan will be jumping through my front window any minute now holding a Mark XIX Desert Eagle and a warrant for my capture. Anything to silence THE TRUTH. It's fairly obvious when you think about it. The NHL is about to expand to 32 teams. Everyone loves expansion. Well, it will water...

Just have some random thoughts for you this morning. I'll be finishing up the semester at Buffalo State in the next week and a half, so I'll try to blog more and more as time goes.
