NHL’s Possible Realignment for the 2012-2013 Season

If you take a close look at the Devils’ 2011-2012 regular season game schedule, you will notice that the Devils face the Winnipeg Jets four times, the same number of times they face Southeast Division teams.

The 2010/2011 NHL Season

The day after the Stanley Cup gets skated around an arena, I always feel the need to kind of look back at the season that just was. The playoffs and the season are a distant memory and this is the point where every team in the league now focuses on the task at hand, which […]

Thoughts on the Rome/Horton Hit

As I watched Nathan Horton lying on the ice, eyes rolling into the back of his head, my initial reaction was that Rome hit him high and that the hit was extremely late. After a million replays, I didn’t really change my mind on my initial reaction. Sadly, I feel this is just another example […]

 Pending an approval vote by the NHL’s Board of Governors on June 21, the new owners of the Atlanta Thrashers will move the team north, WAY NORTH to Winnipeg.

2010-2011 Rules Video

Every season the NHL releases a video to the general public that shows examples of what to do and what not to do. So that there is little confusing amongst our readers, I thought I would share the video with you. Notice the Richards on Booth and Cooke on Saavard hits from last season are […]


Changes To NHL Network A Step In The Right Direction

While browsing through my daily hockey reading, I came upon an interesting story on Puck Daddy. The NHL Network, a substandard highlight network for the NHL, will undergo some serious changes in the near future.
