It’s Started. Right on Schedule.

April 6, 2018 // 0 Comments

Three things happen every April. On the first day of the month, people prank each other. A few days later, Mother Nature sends out one last winter blast. And of course, cowardly NHL referees abandon the rule book and start to make it up on […]

The NHL’s Flawed Playoff Format

March 18, 2018 // 0 Comments

The current NHL playoff format is just plain stupid. Someone (Gee, I wonder who?) decided that “rivalries” were the key to huge playoff audiences. Which means we will see the same small group of teams facing each other in the early rounds year after year. […]

Babcock’s Power Play

March 8, 2018 // 0 Comments

It was interesting to watch the Pittsburgh Penguins’ power play in action last night. All the big boys on the ice at the same time. Crosby, Malkin, Kessel etc. Is it any wonder they are the top ranked power play in the NHL. And then […]

World Junior Fans Disguised As Empty Seats

December 28, 2017 // 1 Comment

Why is attendance at this year’s World Junior championship so pathetic you ask? Simple. It’s called greed. When the goal is to gouge and make money so that participating nations like Canada and the U.S.A. can hire bloated staffs of hockey groupies posing as executives […]

Why Canadian Juniors Don’t Win Gold Anymore

December 23, 2017 // 1 Comment

Once again, it seems, Canada’s World Junior team is being over-coached, over-analyzed, and top-heavy with management idiots that try and get cute with stupid decisions that almost always blow up in their faces. The Canadians had an exhibition game available on TSN tonight, so I […]

Playing Nylander on the Right, Is Wrong

December 21, 2017 // 0 Comments

Because it’s Christmas time, and I’m in the mood for giving, I’ve decided to give Mike “The Ego” Babcock some free advice that, if adopted, will improve his current situation in a significant measurable way. No, no, no, don’t thank me. The pleasure is all […]

Morgan Rielly a #1 Defenceman? Hardly.

December 7, 2017 // 0 Comments

It’s hard not to like Maple Leafs’ defenceman Morgan Rielly. As a person. But when the Toronto Star runs an online article suggesting that Rielly is inching his way towards status as a true #1 defenceman, this writer says: Not a chance in hell. Unlike […]

Canada’s Olympic Hockey Uniforms

November 1, 2017 // 0 Comments

Canada has a new uniform design for the upcoming winter Olympics. A big thumbs up. Excellent. Awesome. Connor McDavid would look good in one of these. But nooooooo, little Gary lost the negotiation over money and we’re sending the top scoring unit from Helen’s Fish […]

Montreal is Now a Hab-Not Franchise

October 25, 2017 // 0 Comments

It’s been 25 years since the Montreal Canadiens won a Stanley Cup. If the team’s slow start to the 2017-18 season is any indication, this current drought isn’t about to end any time soon. Poor drafting in combination with poor judgement (when it comes to […]
