Spoiler Alert – America Now Loves TJ

One of, if not my biggest movie crush, is Charlie Conway from the Mighty Ducks franchise.  His charm, swagger, team leadership, incredible hockey skills, and all-around adorableness made him irresistible.  In 2012, I found the second-coming of Charlie Conway. I felt like I was watching Charlie enact the most perfect triple-deke in the final play […]

Professional sports’ domestic violence problem

I spent a good 10 years of my life in domestic violence court. First, as a public defender, representing (mostly) men accused of physical abuse of their wives, girlfriends, children, lovers. My attitude back then was flip: Who knows what really happened? It’s he-said/ she-said. If they’re of a similar size, let them fight. My […]

Ducks, NHL get one more year of Teemu

Teemu Selanne announced today, via an amusing YouTube video, that he’ll be coming back for another season with the Anaheim Ducks. Something tells me his golf game isn’t actually that bad, but props to him for coming up with a clever way to announce his return. Selanne, 43, will make $2 million this season, his 21st […]

Stars Acquire Edmonton Captain Shawn Horcoff in Another Independence Day Trade

More big moves by Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill. Earlier Nill acquired Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley in a blockbuster deal with the Boston Bruins, and now Nill has completely changed the state of the depth in the Dallas Stars center core as the Dallas Stars have now acquired the current Edmonton Oiler captain […]

Blockbuster Trade: Stars Acquire Tyler Seguin; Say Goodbye to Loui Eriksson

Big news out of the office of Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill as he continues his major changes to the Stars organization as the Stars announced a trade that sends fan favorite Loui Eriksson and three Dallas Stars prospects (Reilly Smith, Joe Morrow, and Matt Fraser) to the Boston Bruins for 21 year old […]

CONFIRMED: Seguin and Peverley For Eriksson

Rumors..er..reports are swirling around the social media networks that the Dallas Stars and Boston Bruins are making some big fireworks on this Independence Day as a rumored 5-player deal involving Tyler Seguin, Rich Peverley and Loui Eriksson is going down. While there hasn’t been any confirmation as of yet, we do promise to keep you […]

Asham + Powe On Waivers, What’s Next For Rangers?

In a somewhat surprising move, the Rangers placed Arron Asham and Darroll Powe on regular waivers this morning (i.e. not unconditional waivers with the purpose of buyouts in mind.) The regular part wasn’t what was surprising but instead the fact that they were both waived. Neither had a great season last year but honestly, most […]

Dallas Stars NHL Draft 2013

The NHL takes center stage here at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey as the 2013 NHL entry draft commences. It is expected to be a busy afternoon for the suits of NHL teams and a wild one for hockey fans worldwide as the picks have been some suprises in picks and some shocking […]

Another Day, Another Trade For The Rangers

It’s been a busy couple of days for the Rangers…and not because of the draft or the start of their prospect camp. Instead, the Rangers have decided to get a head start on putting next years’ team together by making a bunch of minor trades that could have major implications. First it was RFA forward […]

Hunwick, Zanon On Waivers

The Colorado Avalanche have put both Matt Hunwick and Greg Zanon on waivers. I’m not particularly surprised by either of these player names. Zanon…if you don’t know my feelings on Zanon by this point (or if this is the first ever post of mine you’ve read) let me just say that as bad as you […]

Seth Jones Top Pick By Predators

In an unsurprising move, the Nashville Predators have once again drafted a defenseman with their first draft pick of 2013. But this defenseman is the top overall ranked D-man, not to mention the raw talent picked up in the fire power and goalie picks for the Preds. First round, fourth pick went to top ranked […]

Rangers Trade Second Forward For Second Defenseman

Anyone remember last season when the Rangers had to put Roman Hamrlik into the lineup during the playoffs? Apparently Glen Sather does as for the second day in a row, he traded a spare forward for a depth defenseman. Today’s lucky defenseman on the move? Danny Syvret from the Philadelphia Flyers. Syvret is your typical […]

Draft Recap + Start Of Prospects Camp = Busy Week For Rangers

As expected, yesterday was a quiet day at the draft for the Rangers. They had no picks in the first two rounds and rumor was they had no intention of getting them. Rumors turned out to be true. Instead they used their three picks in the third round, one in the fourth and one in […]

Draft Day Blog

The Avalanche proved they weren’t bluffing by picking Nathan MacKinnon first overall. I think MacKinnon is going to have to work hard this summer to make sure he makes the team in September-especially considering how many centers the Avs have. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Avs make a trade or two later today. UPDATE: […]

More Than Picks Being Made At Draft

We know that the draft is a time for kids to recognize their dreams and officially become a part of a NHL organization. It is also the time for trades and that is what I’m focusing on here as there are expected to be a lot of them throughout the day and night. You can […]
