Milbury: 'I don't smack kids around'

Referee Gregg Madill Of The Famous ‘Shoe Game’, Died In Early December

Richard Cloutier: Unsportsmanlike Conduct - Dec 19, 2011

Yep, it's Monday, and that means yet another edition of Unsportsmanlike Conduct.

Morning Buzz: HBO 24/7 Returns Tonight

HBO 24/7 returns tonight at 10pm. Interesting storylines in this one to say the least. Chris Pronger officially being ruled out for the year, the Flyers 6-0 loss to the Boston Bruins, and the lame "broadway hat" that the Rangers are wearing. Here is your Morning Buzz: Ilya Bryzgalov's Winter Classic mask is absolutely incredible. It features Philly greats such as Mike...

Should Flyers Hold Onto Draft Picks in Lieu of Trading for an Elite Defenseman?

It’s amazing how many people have latched onto the idea that the Philadelphia Flyers should trade for Ryan Suter or Shea Weber from the Nashville Predators the minute that it was announced Chris Pronger would not play for the rest of the season. Never mind the fact that the Flyers would have to perform some serious [...] Weekly Rankings

1 Boston (21-9-1) The Bruins are on pace for a plus-124 goal differential. That would be the best number since the 1995-96 Red Wings were plus-144. Of course, that didn’t translate into a Stanley Cup for the Wings. 2 Chicago (21-8-4) The 2.88 goals per game they’re allowing are the most since they gave up 3.06 per game in 2006-07. Ray Emery, however, is 6-0-1 in December...
