Positions in review - Goaltending

May 6, 2019 - 8:34 AM ET

A pair of good ones tonight as there could be two close out game tonight… until then… One of the time-honored traditions of the off season is to review the team, breaking it down by position and trying to determine what is needed to help them next season. We will do this as well… startin...

A couple of notes before we get to the break down of the blueline for 2018/19… first… congratulations to the St. Louis Blues on their double overtime win last night to take their series against the Dallas Stars… despite an amazing game from Stars netminder Ben Bishop. They await the winner...

A Reasonable Proposal on Replay

May 17, 2019 - 9:00 PM ET

Here we go again… screaming for more replay in the NHL because of a missed hand pass (maybe) that led to a game winning goal. The overreaction is so predictable… I recognize it, because one of the reasons we are in this situation is an overreaction to a massively blown offside call a few years...

After the news of the new 30 year lease between Nashville and the Predators was announced and watching the video from the weekend’s Smashville celebration, well, I got to thinking… and reminiscing a bit about the summer of 2007. Something I have always referred to as the “Summer from Hell.”...
