Trying For Two Plus Two

Like many of you I was happy with the win Tuesday, but I will remain skeptical. The highs and lows we get from following this Team are enough to send some of us to the bin, and, at this point all I want is for the Wings to win two in a row, since I am having a hard time remembering the last time that happened. We are still hovering around the middle of the pack, but that is not...

Bruce Boudreau when asked about Sami Vatanen’s Corsi rating... “I don’t know, I’ve never looked at a Corsi number so that tells you my answer.

Habs deal Rene Bourque to Anaheim for Bryan Allen

The Bourque glory lasted for about ten games, and it is long gone. Bourque heads to the Ducks for veteran defenceman Bryan Allen. GM Marc Bergevin continues to (intriguingly) stockpile veteran defencemen. Could another move be in the offing? The Habs take on the Blues, and New Brunswick native Jake Allen, tonight.

Masterton Leader

There is always some controversy when discussing the Masterton Trophy and saying that one player is more worthy than another.  The trophy is officially for dedication, perseverance and sportsmanship in hockey, but it is more accurately described as the trophy for the player who overcame the biggest obstacle to make the biggest impact with his team this season.  Sometimes this...

Losing Nestrasil is not a damning critique upon the Red Wings’ coach or management; it’s the CBA

I'm still trying to get back on my feet, and when I read that Andrej Nestrasil had been claimed on waivers by the Carolina Hurricanes, I felt like I got punched in the gut--and in the heart. Andrej is one of the nicest human beings I've ever met and by far one of the kindest, most humble and hardworking human beings I've been graced by the game of hockey to get to know...

Who Is It?

I definitely plan on staying here.  My wife is American so that was always sort of the plan, to stay here.  My boys were born here—one of my sons surf, one plays baseball—so they are as American as you can be.  It was just always the plan, stay here and raise our family down here.  LA is great too—San Diego is just a little bit more mellow so for the family life I...

Numbers Not Great For The Los Angeles Kings

from Stephen Burtch of Sportsnet, After winning their second Stanley Cup in three years, and starting the 2014-15 season with a bang, the Los Angeles Kings are off track. The season began with the Kings playing seven of their first eight games at home. They convincingly won six straight at the Staples Center before hitting the road with a 6-1-1 record.

Andrew Ladd On The Jets’ Mindset Going Into Tonight’s Game With The Wings

from Ed Tait of the Winnipeg Free Press, "It’s going to be a good test for us," said captain Andrew Ladd.

"We’ve found a formula that gives us success. You can see that everyone...

Something Has To Be Done In Edmonton

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, There was so much focus on Toronto yesterday in the aftermath of the embarrassing loss to the Predators, but I suspect we need to keep just as close an eye on Edmonton, where the Oilers dropped to 0-9-1 against Western Conference teams this season with the loss to Vancouver. Simply unacceptable. I know management in Edmonton was not going to...

The Problems In Toronto

from Lyle Richardson of Spector's Hockey, There’s no pleasant way to say this: the Leafs suck. I don’t mean that to trash talk. It’s simply the way it is. They’ve missed the playoffs every season but one since the end of the season-killing lockout of 2004-05, and then only made the playoffs in a lockout-shortened season. Over the past three years the Leafs...

Chris McCosky of the Detroit News with a look at Justin Abdelkader, "He keeps getting better," coach Mike Babcock said. "We had four net-front presences on five goals, which is important playing against that goalie. With Bobrovsky, you have to find a way to get inside. You try to do that every night; some nights you get there and some nights you don't. Good...

All that matters is Dupuis’ long-term health as he battles a serious, recurring problem with blood clots in his lungs. He has to do everything he can to live to be a very old man for his wife and their kids...
