As many NHL fans know, since being instituted as the league’s disciplinarian czar, former playing great Brendan Shanahan has instituted a practice of recording video explanations and posting them on NHL.com as to his reasoning behind what goes into his decisions when he metes out punishment to players. The practice has generally been greeted by [...]
Just passing along some good news on the one guy us Wings fans want more than any other (excluding Weber). Well at least for me. Per The Fourth Period, via KK:
The Devils, who need to meet payroll twice a month until the end of regular season, are considering trading team captain Zach Parise for draft picks.

Gerald Coleman made 37 saves in his first start in Cleveland as a Monster. He had been 1-1 in two road starts since signing a player-tryout contract Jan. 11.
Well well well, another one goal effort by New Jersey results in a third straight loss. New Jersey fell to a slumping Buffalo squad that had lost their last 5 games before walking into Newark, along with a miserable 10 game record of 2-7-1. Through three periods it seemed like New Jersey was eventually, and, i'd like to STRESS the word EVENTUALLY, (becuase thats how the last...
