NHL's top scorers putting up smaller numbers this season

  When it comes to scoring, Sid the Kid's pace this season is no match for the greatest by the Great One. Pittsburgh forward Sidney Crosby is in line to win the scoring title with what can be projected to be about 85 points. That's a number Wayne Gretzky reached by midseason when he accumulated 215 during his record-setting year in 1985-86. Granted, a much different time and way...

Should The Blackhawks Retire Jeremy Roenick’s Number?

This very well could be an age or era sort of thing, but growing up and getting into hockey the first player that I ever liked was Jeremy Roenick. His skill on the ice, his rockstar persona off of it, he was the reason to watch Blackhawks’ hockey in the early to mid 90’s. But “JR” wasn’t just tremendously skilled, he was able to lead the Blackhawks to their first Stanley...

5 Good Reasons for Penguin Fans to Hate the Flyers by @ChicksDigHockey

I was a casual hockey fan until 2003-04 season. I find it odd that I forged my love for the Penguins during a season that they stunk up the Atlantic division from the bottom up….for the third season in a row. I guess my hate for Philly has something to do with them winning the division that year.  That was the season Jeremy Roenick had a broken jaw and Captain Keith Primeau...
