The biggest snubs of the 2016 NHL All-Star Game

I know many of you will come to this article in hopes of seeing big flashy names that were snubbed this year by the league. I could do that, but I will let you in on a little secret: Sidney Crosby didn’t deserve to go to the All-Star Game this year. *GASP* For all of the uproar, it isn’t as if he was going to go anyway. He missed the All-Star Game last year and was seen laying...

The Predtors and Blue Jackets grabbed everyone’s attention

The Predators have been very good, but simply haven’t been able to score enough goals for Pekka Rinne. They have always needed a pivot, with their defense very strong with Roman Josi and Shea Weber and a few young wings like Filip Forsberg or even veterans like James Neal expected to bolster the Predators for some time, adding a center was a priority. They did just that, acquiring...

How a Good Power Play Can Become Great
