It's been six years since Jonathan Cheechoo shocked the hockey world with a 56-goal season for the San Jose Sharks.
During that time, he's become an enigmatic journeyman. He was shipped to the Ottawa Senators in 2009 in the Dany Heatley trade; was bought out in 2010; attended Dallas Stars training camp; returned to the Sharks organization; signed a 2-way deal with the St. Louis Blues this summer, and is currently playing for the AHL Peoria Rivermen.
But wherever Jonathan Cheechoo goes, his soundtrack follows him.
"The Cheechoo Song" remains one of hockey's oddest memes, as a portly gentleman in a beard chants and dances to a tune that goes a little something like this:
"Train, train, Cheechoo train/
The [Insert Current Team Here] are gonna win this game/
CHEE-CHOO (oh yeah)/CHEE-CHOO"
And so on.
It's pretty much one of our favorite things in the history of ever, so we were thrilled to see another edition has been produced in honor of Cheechoo'...

Carlo Colaiacovo has a reputation in the league as being easily injurable, and let's face it - it's true. While he's been successful on the blue line for the Blues, he hasn't exactly been available the whole season. So far this season it took about three quarters of a game before he was tripped and went awkardly into the boards, hitting his head. He's been suffering...

from Stu Hackel of Red Light, It’s commonly accepted that the draft is the best way to start building a hockey club that will be good for a while. If you develop a core group of talented youngsters together, they can form the bonds and chemistry that make them want to play for each other. Maybe you augment that core with some veterans to help guide the kids and things will take...

5 goals / 32 shots = x / 100
32 shots times x = 500
500 divided by 32 = 15.625, which = x
Take 100 (shots faced) and subtract 15.625 (avg amount of goals that went in if his shot total were...
