That doesn’t seem to be good enough as the Senators are reportedly already working on signing both players to new contracts. Asst.

Canucks promise change with new slogan

The Vancouver Canucks are trying to rally interest for season tickets and they did so by promising that change is coming. Normally a team’s marketing message isn’t worth discussing as they are tired cliches we’ve all heard before, but this one is a bit more interesting as it leads to several discussion points. Yes, it is something the team more or less stole from Game of Thrones...

Dustin Brown’s delivery guy is a Rangers fan

Dustin Brown received a small bonus from his FedEx delivery guy. On a package Brown recently received, someone wrote “Rangers Rule!!” complete with an underline. That Rangers fan is a long way from home. Give credit to Brown for his snappy comeback. To the @FedEx guy who delivered this package I love the passion but this ain’t ‘94. @lakings #champs pic.twitter.com/kQvaXCgJFj...

Season ticket sales for the Dallas Stars are booming

Back in 2012, we took a quick look at the odd attendance figures emerging out of Dallas. Remarkably, the club set franchise records for largest single-game crowd and smallest single-game crowd during the 2011-12 season. Since then, attendance figures have been pretty ugly. The team averaged 79.1% capacity, the worst mark in the NHL, during its home games in 2013-14. The tide is starting...

NHL releases ugly sweaters for the holidays

The NHL has released tacky sweater themed jerseys in the past for the holiday season, which I compared to the tacky sweater worn by Colin Firth’s Darcy in Bridget Jones’ Diary. I can’t imagine that they were such big sellers among the fanbase that someone in marketing wanted to spin off actual ugly sweaters, but here they are. Made for terrible “ugly sweater nights” at...

A compilation of Pierre McGuire’s most awkward moments

Pierre McGuire is an interesting man. The word “interesting” in the previous sentence could be replaced with a lot of different words, but it’s clear that most hockey fans feel that McGuire is one of the most awkward, if not creepy, broadcasters in sports. He knows his hockey and he knows how to make everyone feel uncomfortable. Pierre probably has an awkward moment in each...

Patrick Kane routinely makes competition at the NHL level look silly. Not surprisingly, he can also make the competition at a local men’s league look pretty silly too.
