30th
Jan. × ’13

The power of Prospect Lust is an amazing thing, as the last post clearly indicates people will go well beyond the bounds of reasons to express their affection for prospects. It doesn’t matter If the prospect is average or exceptional, they just have to be what that fan thinks their team needs, or in some […]

Feature: Yep They Said It

29th
Jan. × ’13

The newest feature for PuckSage.com is written by other people, and I just take credit for publicizing their brilliance.  Yep They Said It will appear at highly irregular intervals for your education and dissection.   Apparently having five games of NHL experience makes you worth twice as much as someone with a fistful of Norris […]

Rockin’ My Peers: Debut Feature – Wade Redden

29th
Jan. × ’13

This is a semi-regular feature that will run until I get bored. This feature will highlight a player on track for a much better season than recent history indicates.  When the Collective Bargaining Agreement was still a matter of speculation, one of the things that nearly everyone thought was a give was the much ballyhooed […]

21st
Jan. × ’13

According to Boston Sports Desk the Detroit Red Wings Glenn Merkosky is perched above the ice watching attentively. Since neither of today’s teams will face the Wings this season unless it is in the Stanley Cup Finals, it would seem to indicate there is something more than simply prepping for an upcoming game.

21st
Jan. × ’13

The end of the lockout brought more uncertainty than we are used to seeing at this time of year in the NHL. What we would get going into games was anyones guess. Sure a little more chaos than expected, but out of the swirl of bodies, we can already begin to extract some very important […]

Jan. × ’13

Oh what an off season. The surprise firing of Brian Burke, the lack of contract for P.K. Subban which will no doubt fuel the “Subban to Boston” rumor mill, and Chris Bourque son of Hall of Famer Ray Bourque coming home to Boston. Buffalo: This is Ryan Millers last change to prove his Vezina winning […]
