  • Thin Air: 1-800-SCRUM-STOPPERS

    James Gralian
    22 Apr 2015 | 10:36 am
    Look who’s back, back again. – In the triple OT Blackhawks – Predators game 4, I don’t recall a single scrum in front of the net.  Maybe a shove or two, but nothing even remotely violent.  Hmmm….. That points to the real value of these scrums: almost none.  No one wants to go to the penalty box when the next goal might cost them the game.  Not that these post-regulation scrums would cause a power play.  At best, we would see coincidental minors (unless something truly violent happened), as the refs don’t want to cause the game to be won on the power…

    It’s been a while since I’ve used this blog to talk, you know, hockey.  Hockey that’s actually happening right now.  Or the NHL.  But hey, let’s give this a shot, eh? – The NHL is getting two things very wrong in the playoffs.  Letting the post-whistle scrums happen as often as they are, and not calling cross-checking in front of the net.  We don’t either of these happen as often in the regular season, and there is no reason to have it here. First, the scrums.  Once or twice, the fans of the game don’t mind.  It’s a little exciting. …

    If memory serves, the last time I was in Indianapolis for a game was 2008, when the team was the Indiana Ice of the USHL.  Before that, it was 2004 and the Indianapolis Ice was in their 15th season and playing in the UHL.  Ah, the old Pepsi Coliseum.  It was a barn.  A shed.  Heck, it was barely four walls and a roof.  It was barely a floor and an ice surface. Ah, there it is.  In all its municipal glory. Well, might as well head in.  It’s raining outside and I’m sure there are mice in the place waiting for me to drop a little snack or two for them.  Just try not to touch…
  • Gatineau Olympiques vs. Rimouski Oceanic: In Quebec

    James Gralian
    3 Apr 2015 | 6:30 am
    I had originally tried to write something somewhat poetic about the differences between my experiences in Quebec and Ottawa.  Something about Parliament overlooking the town of Gatineau, about leaving the shiny polish of the country’s capital to the more working-class feel of the city in Quebec.  I even tried to quote the movie Goon. None of it fit.  Crossing the bridge into Quebec, we were leaving a city and entering a town.  The main road was lined with houses and smaller businesses, not condos and department stores.  Gatineau was grey and piled with snow along the streets.  We…

    They say that in space, no one can hear you scream.  If you find yourself at a Ottawa 67s home game, you don’t have to worry about it.  No one is making much noise at all. One of my bucket list items / dream vacations was to go to Ottawa and skate the Rideau Canal.  It’s a wonderful experience, and if you are a skater, pencil it in on your itinerary.  Treat yourself, and treat it like a ski vacation. We flew in on a Friday with enough time for a brief skate and take in a 67s game.  The arena itself makes going to the game worth it. This is TD Place, the home of the Ottawa…

    from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated, There’s no telling how tonight’s decisive Game 7 between the Islanders and Capitals will play out, but it shouldn’t surprise anyone that their first-round series got to this point. There was little to distinguish these Metropolitan Divison rivals, results-wise, during the regular season. Both ended up with 101 points. Both won a combined 40 games in regulation and overtime. Both were strong on the road, picking up 22 victories. They were so close that home ice for this game had to be decided by a count of points gained in head-to-head…

    Amateur scouting is not an exact science. Professionals with a keen eye for the game of hockey spend hundreds of hours each year watching games, reviewing video, and traveling around the world trying to find the best possible prospect for their respective teams. In many cases all that time and effort is for naught, as players who were standouts at the junior level just don't have what it takes to make the transition to the NHL level. However, when it comes to the #1 overall pick - those special players that stand head and shoulders above their peers - it is very rare that the recommendations…

And there’s a good chance it’s only going to get tougher from here on out as the stakes grow exponentially with each passing round.

    On the heels of my minor hockey politics rant, I thought I should get back to a more positive tone and spend some time giving thanks to those who have helped coach, raise and nurture our two players over the last 15 years or so. Feel free to break out the turkey and fixings if you’re so inclined. They say it takes a village to raise a child. This certainly applies when it comes to hockey and our family. Here are some of the folks who deserve to be recognized for their contribution in ways, both large and small, to our children’s development as athletes and well-rounded members of…
  • Of Death, Taxes and Minor Hockey Politics

      I’ve had my fair share of experiences with all three inevitabilities lately and I can confidently say none have been of the particularly positive variety. I have time now and have earned the license from 15 years in the game to rant one last time on the third of the evil triumvirate, Hockey Politics, before I leave the ranks of hockey fatherdom. I would have hoped after all this time things would have improved to some degree, but it seems each week we read about another minor hockey controversy and here in my own hockey life, I’ve witnessed more bullshit (yup, I said it…

    Hey folks, the weather round this part of the world has been on the downright frigid side for the last few weeks. Fortunately, with the Devil’s minor hockey career coming to a somewhat premature end (more on this topic later), we have not had to endure too many cold rinks. However, I know there are legions of hockey parents who are braving the elements to stand in sub-arctic temperatures to cheer on their progeny in arenas across th. With it being the Season of Love, I’ve decided to run a small contest with much thanks to a fellow devoted hockey parent (see @kimi8 on Twitter) who…
  • Nearing the End of a Hockey Era

    Time is ticking down on the Devil’s season, her minor hockey career and a major focus of our family’s life over the past 14 years or so. While this season has been a challenge on and off the ice for the Devil and I, there is still no substitute or equal to going to the rink and watching my kid play. And whether I like it or not, those chances are fleeting. While I coach the entire team, I also root for her to do well…for her to have fun in these last few weeks; regardless goals, assists, wins or losses; just fun playing hockey like she did when she was 4. I know, what say we…

    JETBLAST Anaheim Ducks, 1st in West (51-24-7)  at Winnipeg Jets, 8th in West (43-26-13) 8:00 p.m., MTS Centre, TV: Sportsnet Radio: TSN 1290 Ducks lead best of 7 series 3-0 The Ducks did it again. After already being the first team to win two straight playoff games when trailing after two periods, the Ducks extended that record, as they went in to Monday’s game 3 third period down 4-3 to the Winnipeg Jets. Ryan Kesler who was serenaded by the crowd all night, tied the game with two minutes left, and Ricard Rakell scored 5:12 into overtime to stun the loudest crowd in the league.

Elation in Anaheim, a stranglehold on the series on the back of two third period comebacks. Another tune was being played in Winnipeg however, disappointment, disappointment if allowing two game to slip through your fingers, disappointment of…

Three of four series were tied last night, but don’t expect the Ducks to just roll over and allow it to be tied. Game 1 was extremely competitive and hard hitting for much of the game. It was even for the…

Eighty two regular season games have been played, and after all that sixteen NHL teams have earned the privilege to play at least four more in the quest for Lord Stanley’s cup. The Winnipeg Jets, who finished with 43 wins and 99 points, both franchise highs, finished in 5th in the Central division, and good enough to grind out 8th in the Western conference. The Ducks, had a more relaxed path to the playoffs, earning…

Due to Calgary beating the LA Kings on Thursday night, both the Winnipeg Jets and Calgary Flames clinched their spot in the 2015 NHL Playoffs. Though the Jets are locked in at eighth place and will most likely rest a lot of their stars, the Flames are still playing for positioning and home ice advantage. The Flames will come out gunning and…

    The hits were as loud as the crowd Sunday afternoon. Cal Clutterbuck, Casey Cizikas and Matt Martin were easily the best line for the Isles in Game 3. They established the tone early. Clutterbuck drew Capitals Forward Curtis Glencross into a unsportsmanlike conduct against Clutterbuck early in the first period. They needed an answer for the … Continue reading The “Best Fourth Line Ever in Hockey” Delivers Again → The post The “Best Fourth Line Ever in Hockey” Delivers Again appeared first on GETREALHOCKEY.COM.

    The draft lottery can be a nerve wracking event for both fans and management alike. On paper, the lottery and the entry draft merely dictate what team a young rookie will open his long awaited NHL career with. In reality, many look upon the draft as a long awaited holiday.

    Passing along a quick conversation with Morgan Rielly from later on this past season: On your personal development: This was your sophomore season; a bit of a tough one to go through as a player that’s still developing. What’s it feel like to go through so much adversity at a young stage of your career? I think you have to treat it like a positive. There’s lots of players who are older than me who haven’t had a chance to experience what I’ve experienced, and I think that’s a good thing. Obviously the team is going through a tough time The post A Quick Morgan Rielly Interview…
