They’ve made some pretty puzzling moves recently – whether it’s signing Derek Dorsett and Lucas Sbisa to long-term extensions, giving up on Eddie Lack for almost nothing or adding salary and losing assets to trade for Brandon Sutter, only to...

The Vancouver Canucks have made some puzzling decisions this summer

The Vancouver Canucks have made some puzzling decisions of late. General manager Jim Benning isn’t exactly putting on a clinic on how to GM. It’s hard to forget he handed out sizable extensions to bit-players. Derek Dorsett is a solid fourth liner, but is he really worth $10.6 million over four seasons? Benning thought so. The same day he signed Dorsett, he also signed defenseman...

Rangers final grades: bottom-six forwards

Last season, the Rangers deployed Benoit Pouliot, Derick Brassard and Mats Zuccarello on their third line and Derek Dorsett, Dominic Moore and Brian Boyle on the fourth for much of the season.

Sharks Laugh At Derek Dorsett For Trying To Fight John Scott

  Let’s pretend you know nothing about the NHL. There’s this bad dude who plays for the Sharks named John Scott. Trust me, he’s a bad dude when it comes time to drop his gloves. Derek Dorsett from the Vancouver Canucks thought it would be a good idea Tuesday night to fight Big John. Luckily, Derek skated away.

Hockey Fights of the Week: 2/2 – 2/8

Before diving into another edition of Hockey Fights of the Week, we have a bone to pick with the NHL. As things currently stand, fighting is legal in the NHL. You may not realize fighting is still legal in the NHL because the game’s officials keep stepping in and breaking up fights. The recent “fight” with Steve Ott and Dan Carcillo is a perfect example.

Hockey fights of the week

The 2014-15 season may be remembered as the season in which the sport of hockey pushed away from fighting. Players are still dropping the mitts, but they are doing so at a greatly reduced rate. Last season we typically were reviewing 20-30 fights each week and now we’re lucky if we have 15 or more. While disappointing, we’re lucky to still be treated to a few outstanding scraps...
