NHL Referees. Making It Up on the Fly

June 6, 2017 // 0 Comments

“What? There’s a rule against crosschecking? Who knew? But it says so right  here. When did that happen? Next thing you know they’ll be asking us to call slashing.” NHL Referees. Simply awful. All over the map. Haven’t got a clue.

Big Pond Hockey Entertains

May 20, 2017 // 0 Comments

There was another NHL playoff game on last night. I watched it, sort of. There was a World Championship playoff game on today. I watched every second of it. Just like I watch every second of those big pond games during the Spengler Cup at […]

Praying to the Hockey Gods

May 13, 2017 // 0 Comments

Please, oh please, hockey gods, it must be the Penguins and the Ducks in the Stanley Cup finals. Watching the Senators’ Dion Phaneuf and Nashville’s P.K Subban that many times in one week would be unbearable, forcing me to switch to a soccer game.

NHL Video Review Solves Nothing

May 6, 2017 // 0 Comments

The widely disputed, incredibly controversial, totally confusing “non-call” call by the NHL’s war room during Edmonton’s collapse of all collapses last night doesn’t surprise us in the least. See video here.  First, the NHL video review dudes, hiding behind the curtain like the Wizard of […]

According to this story, the Edmonton Oilers are planning to wear those ridiculous orange jerseys on a fulltime basis moving forward. The Edmonton Oilers simply don’t get it. The New York Yankees get it. Their iconic uniforms haven’t been altered in decades. Hell, they won’t […]

Ovechkin the Soccer Player

April 22, 2017 // 2 Comments

Anyone who has taken the time to watch a professional soccer game has undoubtedly noticed the many drama queens, flopping on the field as if they had just been shot by a high-powered rifle. They roll around in agony and writhe in pain. Good heavens, it appears their injury may […]

Mike Babcock: The Comedian

April 21, 2017 // 0 Comments

That Mike Babcock, he’s a funny guy. Just this week, he made two statements that should have left the pundits rolling in the aisles with laughter. First, when discussing Toronto’s physically-gifted, mentally-challenged defenceman, Jake Gardiner, Babcock actually said, “Jake’s got elite hockey sense.” No Mike, […]

Assault NHL Style

April 16, 2017 // 0 Comments

It was a savage attack, by Matt Calvert, a gutless nobody. Here’s the video. And the reason he did it? Because the NHL says he can. By issuing a feeble one-game suspension, the NHL is basically saying “go ahead.” And so, it will continue. Eventually, […]
