The Hat Trick
Slip slidin away…
It seems quaint, but back in Febraury the Canucks were taking heat for winning a majority of their games, but needing overtime or the shootout to get the job done.
How little we appreciated what we had.

Blazers All Access Coaching Search
No offense to Kaleb Canales, the video intern turned head coach of the Portland Trail Blazers, but when news that the pink slip had been handed to Nate McMillan, one would have thought that the team may have had something…anything, in mind rather than what seemed at the time to be similar to that of throwing a dart and running with the person...
