Good Riddance to Alex Anthopoulos

October 31, 2015 // 0 Comments

What’s this? A site dedicated to hockey posting a baseball article? What gives? Nothing really. Just felt the need to do it. With all the know-it-all whining going on in Toronto this week, since Blue Jays’ GM Alex Anthopoulos resigned, it’s been hard to focus on […]

Why Nazem Kadri Can’t Score

October 30, 2015 // 0 Comments

The Montreal Canadiens and the Toronto Maple Leafs don’t have a lot in common these days. One thing they do share is the desperate need for a number-one centre. In both cases, they are hoping that the answer is already sitting in their dressing room. Montreal is […]

Montreal Canadiens Caught Cheating

October 29, 2015 // 1 Comment

Hockey Night In Canada…..Then and Now

October 28, 2015 // 9 Comments

Money may have won Sportsnet an NHL broadcast monopoly in Canada, but no amount of money can fix their absolutely brutal game presentation, especially the pre-game and intermission segments.

Here’s 10 thoughts not worth thinking about: I hate New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady and Montreal Canadiens’ Patrick Roy because neither will ever lose another game as long as they live. This hate for Roy will be temporarily removed anytime he dons a Team […]

John Tortorella? John Tortorella? Really? True, the Columbus Blue Jackets were off to their traditional miserable start, and something had to be done. But John Tortorella? Why not Donald Trump? This is the same John Tortorella that marched into his previous coaching gig, in Vancouver, with […]
