For Better Or Worse: Pacific Division

30th
Jul. × ’14

The NHL offseason is a time to rest, recuperate, restock and reevaluate for teams, players and fans. In the Pacific division we have teams that are doing one of the four, two of the four or seemingly none of the four. Anaheim Ducks: The Ducks don’t seem to have decided what direction they are going […]

Round One Rewind

1st
May. × ’14

The first round of the playoffs may have been the best opening round as a whole in years. The Columbus Blue Jackets traded blows and goals with the Pittsburgh Penguins and had the Metropolitan division winners looking just a bit weak. The loss of David Backes due to a suspend-able hit by Brent Seabrook was […]

The Matchups: San Jose And Los Angeles

17th
Apr. × ’14

This may be the best first round matchup for hockey. The Kings have won a cup recently, as have have the Ducks. The Sharks spent half a decade as the favorites to win it and still haven’t. A first round meeting of two California teams where the winner will quite likely play the third California […]

8th
Nov. × ’13

The Western Conference has run over the east so far this year. The odd thing is how concentrated the losses are, so many of the east’s teams are in complete disarray while most of the weakest of the western teams are either over performing or have finally started to turn the corner on rebuilds that […]

October is over, and with the close of the seasons inaugural month we can finally start to get a handle on which teams are for real and which are just pretenders. Anaheim Ducks: When will they turn one or more of their wealth of goaltenders in future assets or skater to improve them for the […]

New Feature: One Question

5th
Oct. × ’13

This irregular feature will run when I get bored. It will ask one scintillating question about each NHL team.   Anaheim Ducks: Can this team take advantage of its abundance of youth to compliment its savvy and skilled veteran core? Boston Bruins: Is there a single hockey observer anywhere who doesn’t think the team is […]

Singed And Long

18th
Jul. × ’13

The long term deals under the still drying CBA are rolling in. Some of them make great sense, some make no sense. But given how hard line some of the owners were on not signing anyone longer than five years just a few short months ago, the deals are a bit eye opening when taken […]
