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 […]

Crease Crisis

24th
Sep. × ’13

Goalie may be the most important position in all of sports. In hockey they are not only the last line of defense, playing more minutes a year than any skater, they are often the spark plug for offensive breakouts. Some teams have impressive goaltenders who not have played well in the past, but have done […]

Hockey Tv: Classic NHL Chicago Vs Philadelphia 2010

16th
Sep. × ’13

This feature will follow the various non-news tv shows surrounding the NHL and NHL teams. What a confusing morass of not a lot. This is an anti-documentary. Zero context, just nothing.

The First Five Games: Philadelphia Flyers

6th
Sep. × ’13

The City of Brotherly Love played host to three of the four horseman of the Apocalypse last season, or at least the Flyers locker room did. Players that weren’t injured were often ill, and despair cloaked the stands and fanbase days into the season. Four different goaltenders saw action during the season, and only one […]

The First Five Games: The Detroit Red Wings

27th
Aug. × ’13

Last season’s Red Wings had to live with the reality of a Lidstrom-less existence. It showed more in their finishing 21st in goals for than other parts of their game.
