    Imagine a tie baseball game after 11 innings. Clearly the only way to settle this boring affair after investing four hours of your life is a homerun hitting contest.

    The Spurs and the Lakers tied at 114 each after overtime. Clear the court, its slam dunk contest time.

    Absurd right? Ridiculous. Foolish. No way would it ever happen. Why then, does the NHL insist on ending games with a shootout? Why not mix it up a little and next year ...

Size:  3.1 KBIn this edition of Three (Future) Star Selection, we’ll look at the Quebec Remparts of the QMJHL. Known as one of the most popular franchises in the CHL, the Remparts consistently ice a talented team and have produced notable, current NHL players such as current Simon Gagne, Antoine Vermette and Mike Riberio along with Hall of Fame members Michel Goulet and Guy Lafleur. Playing in front of crowds in excess of 11,000 on a regular basis, the Remparts are also a major draw ...
  3. Early impressions from the NHL

    Greetings from a very cold Rhode Island (12° F, and -11° C for my friends in Canada reading this blog). I wanted to drop in and do a blog about the early season surprises in both a good and bad way.

  4. Weekend Wrap-Up for January 19th and 20th

    In case you haven't heard the NHL is officially underway with a flurry of meaningful games for the next 14 weeks and 1 day (99 days). Over the weekend a few intriguing match ups took place including the Rangers going to Boston and playing the Bruins, this was after an afternoon tilt between the Penguins and Flyers in Philadelphia on the opening day that ended with a Ducks 7-3 win over Vancouver who is surprisingly 0-2 to start that season.

    I took away a lot from the opening weekend ...

  5. Three (Future) Star Selection: London Knights

Size:  3.1 KBThis week we’ll take a look at the defending OHL champion London Knights. Granted a franchise in 1965, the London Nationals changed their name to Knights in 1968. Normally a very successful team (the team has made the OHL playoffs every year since 2000, winning the OHL title last year and the Memorial Cup in 2005 and also had a 24 game winning streak earlier this season) the Knights hold the dubious distinction of having the single worst season in CHL history. In the ...
