I know its a personal choice, but for me it was an easy one. I wanted to save my eyes; thats pretty much it. That was Columbus Blue Jackets winger Nick Foligno, explaining in the simplest terms his choice to wear a visor when he plays hockey. For him, its all about trying to avoid a catastrophic eye injury that in most cases is avoidable if a visor is worn. My eyes are something Ill never get back, said Foligno. You can get injured or cut just about anywhere else, but your eyes are the most important thing, and I cant imagine not doing something to protect them. And as much as you play physical, there are so many things you cant control in a game, like sticks and pucks. You know, just that one split second that maybe youre turned the wrong way, and you dont have a visor on, those things can hit you. Youve seen that in the past, and Id hate to be the one that has that happen because I didnt wear a visor. The visor debate is raging again in the NHL, after New York Rangers defense...

ICYMI Canucks lose to the Columbus Blue Jackets #fireav

AV…duck, the pitchforks are out! The purpose of hockey is to win and the Canucks haven’t been taking two points away from games lately. An overtime loss to Columbus combined with their recent string of efforts is enough to make this quite level-headed Canucks fan thoughtfully finger the panic button. Perhaps the window is closing, perhaps they’re merely the latest reincarnation...

Wings/Blue Jackets Recap

George picked a good day to deal with a computer issue with his new laptop so you have me with this recap. I am going to make like Mike Babcock during his first period timeout and say nothing. That's it, I have nothing to say about this game but on the other hand you may have a lot to talk about, so the floor is yours.

GDT - Game 25: Red Wings (12-8-4) at Blue Jackets (8-12-4) 2:00

Half way there, and DET are sitting in 4th. After the start to this season, who'd a thunk it?  That is the good news anyways.  In the crosstown traffic that is the WC, the Wings are only 4 points from 11th position. The problematic bit is that DET are the road warrior the rest of the month;  8 road games versus just 3 at home.  April is a little better, 7 road, 6 at JLA. ...

Red Wings Hung Out to Dry Against Columbus, 3-0

    After a shutout against Edmonton, the Red Wings fall in glorious fashion to the Blue Jackets 3 – 0. The first period was flat. Flatter than an old, warm beer in a crappy bar. While the Wing generated more shots in the period than Columbus did, giveaways, as I’ve stated multiple times in [...]
