You typically know just as well as the authors which teams won what games against who and what it all means, so our moving the Red Wings up four spots or whatever really doesn't tell you anything you didn't know.

    Terry Pegula has gobs of money. Obscene amounts. So when he purchased the Buffalo Sabres in 2011, fans were excited for a future where big-name free agents could be lured with a nice salary. The plan hasn’t worked out that way just yet, as the franchise is currently in the middle of a rebuild. Meanwhile, the other major professional sports team in Buffalo, the Bills, have been stuck treading water since the end of the 1990s, otherwise known as their glory days. Franchise founder Ralph Wilson passed away in March and Pegula’s name has surfaced as the team searches for a new owner.

This third one, as it stands, features just one plaintiff. The man behind it is Jon Rohloff, known to most twenty-something hocey fans as the guy you'd get multiples of in hockey card packs in the '90s. Rohloff played 150 games for the Boston Bruins between 1994 and 1997, and according to the suit, "he suffered multiple head traumas during his NHL career that were improperly diagnosed and treated by the NHL. Mr. Rohloff was…

One thing is guaranteed; at 25 years of age, Subban is going to be a very, very rich young man. “I’ll answer one question about the negotiation: It’s been kept pretty quiet the whole time and it’s going to remain that way until a deal’s done.” — P.K.

    By J.D. Lagrange, Senior Writer, All Habs Hockey Magazine There was a time, not all that long ago, when one of the biggest issues with the Montreal Canadiens was its player-development. They seemed to draft relatively well but the prospects would appear to reach their peak too soon, or simply would not live up to expectations. They almost let Carey Price fall into that category and they certainly didn’t want to take any chances with P.K. Subban and Alex Galchenyuk.   PENTICTON, BC. – After securing Carey Price in the lottery draft of 2005, and a bold pick by Trevor Timmins to take…

At least from real competitive hockey. Maybe not, though, from pick-up activity.

Zolak, a world renowned linguist, professional Scrabble player and co-host of the Gresh & Zo show on Boston’s 98.5 Sports Hub, defended his stance by deploying the oldest trick in the linguists’ playbook: referencing Greek mythology and the Boston Bruins.

  • Time To Pay Subban

    30 Jul 2014 | 3:08 pm
    from Ryan Dixon of Sportsnet, Now it’s time for Montreal to forgo the gamesmanship and pay. Because of the aforementioned tough-love approach the coaching staff has taken with Subban at times and because his last negotiation resulted in a brief holdout before a team-friendly, two-year deal was signed, there’s always a seed of doubt when assessing No. 76’s future in Montreal. That no deal has been struck yet makes speculation easier to spread, though Habs GM Marc Bergevin could well just be doing his due diligence in trying to ink Subban for as palatable a number as possible.

    (USA Hockey/Ellen DeLuca) As we make our way through a very slow off-season, you can start to see the light at the end of the tunnel. The college hockey season is just around the corner. There’s roughly 65 days until North Dakota kicks off the 2014-15 season with an exhibition game against Manitoba Bison. Looking at the University of North Dakota’s 2014-15 schedule, here’s my five must-see hockey series. Feel free to chime in with your thoughts. Series one: Providence College vs. the University of North Dakota Date: October 24-25, 2014. Location: Ralph Engelstad Arena, Grand…
  • Do LA Kings Have a Draft Day Secret?

    30 Jul 2014 | 4:40 pm
    #108824801 / gettyimages.com It’s something the Los Angeles Kings do two times more than the rest of the NHL. It’s yielded talent like Trevor Lewis, Wayne Simmonds, Alec Martinez, and Tanner Pearson. Brock Otten’s OHL Prospect Blog may have been the first to notice this trend. LA Kings Insider asked Vice President of Hockey Operations and Director of Player Personnel Michael Futa about it last month in Philadelphia. So if it ever was a secret, it’s not much of one anymore: The Kings are gambling on “draft re-entries” more than everybody else. Who are…
  • The Best Trade In Maple Leafs History

    Earlier in the week we began the top five trades in Leafs History – Post-Gilmour Trade – and you can read parts 1 and 2 here and here, should you be so inclined.   #1 The Leafs acquire Mats Sundin, Todd Warriner, Garth Butcher, a first round pick(10th, 1994)  from Quebec for Wendel Clark, Sylvain Lefebvre, Landon Wilson and a first round pick (22nd,1994) Mats Sundin (Flickr/Hakan Dahlstrom)   This is easily the best Leafs trade in the post-Gilmour era, and probably the best trade they ever made, depending on how you view it.  One one hand, it’s not quite the…

    I'm a Hockey Dad

  • I’m a Hockey Dad Warrior

    After having successful completed, that is to say survived, the Warrior Dash with Momma last year, I thought it would be a good idea and parent/child bonding opportunity to have another go at it with the Boy and the Devil. Can’t you just sense the Devil’s excitement? And so, just before Christmas, last year I signed the three of us up and turned the kids’ registrations into what the Devil quickly described as “the worst present she’d ever received.” Despite my cross country running passion and self-professed success as a young lad, this family is…

    Been a while since I jotted anything here, what with it being summer and all. The Devil’s fully recovered from her broken limb and methinks chomping at the bit to get back on the ice for her final minor hockey season. Yup, final…the end…nuttin’ left for this ole hockey dad to do, but reminisce. As Father’s Day falls tomorrow, I thought it may be appropriate to construct a little ditty for me and my fellow Dads. For those who wish to sing along, this has been roughly written to the tune of Mrs. Robinson (I know not why, but it was the first ballad to pop into my…

So we have this Day Though a single 24-hour period in May hardly seems fitting For all they do To put moms on pedestals And here I contend, Hockey Moms in particular With which I’m most familiar and appreciative. Childbirth withstanding Like that’s not enough all on its own (from what I hear). Often up at the break of dawn In the dead of February at 15 below To get a Boy or Devil to practice.

  • The Bad and Good of Minor Hockey’s Silly Season?

    JRiddall
    8 May 2014 | 9:18 pm
    A few days after my new team’s tryouts concluded I am still sorting through exactly what went down. I thought having gone through it a couple of times previously as a coach and a few times more as a parent that I’d seen it all, but I should know there’s always room in minor hockey to be surprised. I think the Hockey Gods were bound and determined to make my last go round a memorable one.  Minor hockey politics drama might bore the tears outta most, but this coach needs his catharsis so bear with me if you will. A couple of years ago at my first rep tryouts as a rookie head…
  • Caution Hockey Parents – Silly Season Is Fast Approaching

    JRiddall
    25 Apr 2014 | 5:36 am
    Yeah, so in an extended moment of weakness a couple of months back I decided to apply for one more tour of hockey coaching duty. I guess I just can’t get enough of the all the time it takes to prep, spending 140+ hours in rinks between practices and games along with the ever present parent scrutiny and expectations raining down from the stands. But in truth, I applied again because I was fortunate this past season to have had the opportunity to work with a fantastic group of players. A true “team” with little to no infighting or divisions. The parent stuff is part of the job…

    When Brendan Shanahan was introduced as the new President of the Toronto Maple Leafs, it was met with skepticism and the focus centered on Tim Leiweke’s consistent reiteration of the word “culture.” Conversely, Shanahan’s focus was not on buzzwords of culture change, or calls to arms, but a methodical approach to assessing and addressing the needs of a team that has very good parts but ultimately is a poorly built team. “I’m not here today
