Who Will Win the Pacific Division in 2018?

1. Edmonton Let’s get this out of the way right now. The Oilers are going to improve dramatically without having to improve their roster. Why is that, you ask and how on Earth does that make any sense. For starts, this NHL offseason did not see a single move in which one particular NHL team […]

Who will win the Atlantic Division in 2018?

1. Toronto Beyond Edmonton, I can’t think of any other NHL team more excited about this season more than the Toronto Maple Leafs (I’m sorry….Trohntah Maypa cannot).

Day 52 of Stanley Quips: The So-Called Death of Corsi

We are only into the third game of the Stanley Cup Finals and already it feels like Nashville are getting no reward for their efforts whatsoever against a maddeningly lucky Pittsburgh Penguins side. Even without Kris Letang and with Sidney Crosby, Patric Hornqvist, Bryan Rust, Matt Murray and Connor Sheary missing some form of postseason […]

2017 Stanley Cup Final Preview

The Stanley Cup Final is finally here and so is the end to my hiatus from writing about hockey. As you can tell, I’m still upset beyond belief of the Capitals not playing the Stanley Cup final. It just can’t be stated enough that this was the best chance they will ever have of winning […]
