from Mike Brehm of Game On at USA TODAY, The one thing missing when the NHL took the major step Monday night of realigning into four conferences was the names of those conferences.
Phoenix Coyotes tough guy and Tweeter extraordinaire Paul Bissonette suggested naming them after rappers.
Another NHL player, Andrew Ebbett, went the hockey movie route: “Reggie Dunlop, Gordon Bombay, Dean Youngblood and either Hanson Brothers or Ogie Ogilthorpe.”
OK, we know those won’t fly. So what should they do?

GLENDALE, ARIZONA --- The Phoenix Coyotes will once again partner with 18 Degrees Neighborhood Grill at the Ice Den to host a viewing party this Thursday, December 8 as the Coyotes visit the Detr...
If you want a lesson in why I hate the shootout and why any self-respecting hockey fan hates it, then Monday night was the perfect one. The NHL seems to think that everyone needs a result. That everything has to have closure, and it can't have that without a "defined" winner or loser. But that's total bull roar.
