With the Olympics underway, and the NHL on a 17 day break or so, it is time to celebrate how great the game is as we watch the best players from around the world battle it out for the ultimate glory. However, in just a couple weeks we will be watching as our favourite teams decide whether to add depth, rebuild, move a goalie, or make a blockbuster move before the trade deadline strikes. So who are some names to really watch out for come March 5th or maybe even before? I have put together a list of guys who have a strong likelihood of switching teams and some to just keep an eye out for. (more…)
My absence the last month was due to just a crazy schedule. But I’m back! And I’m sick to my stomach about what is going on in baseball right now with these mega contracts. Let’s take a look at them and compare them to hockey “mega deals.’
The Los Angeles Kings come out in victorious fashion as they end a horrible four-game road trip through the southwest. Hockey in the southwest…insert jokes here. And before you go on about LA having a hockey team, remember this! The Kings were a part of the 1967 expansion double the league from the Original Six.

A year ago today the hockey world experienced a final blow in what had been a highly tragic summer, the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl plane crash. I am sure that many of you can remember exactly where you were and what you were doing when you heard the horrific news.

Every offseason teams lose players. That much is inevitable. Many of these teams just hope that they don’t lose their key players, stars or leaders of their team to the free agent market. Of course, it isn’t always possible to keep these guys because of salary cap considerations and the money they often demand. Alas, if you do lose one of these players, it’s bound to hurt. Not to mention, it’s even worse when you lose a player to free agency, rather than retirement, personal leave or injury. This essentially means that one teams loss becomes another teams gain. With free agency now winding down to a snails pace I’m going to give you my 3 winners and losers of the free agency period. (more…)
