The NHL took a backseat to a bigger story this week as a dispute over the pay received by Women’s hockey players in the USA brought attention to an issue in international hockey.
The NHL continues to see teams shift and the latest could be the Islanders who may not have a place to play when the next season begins.
It’s that time of year again in the NHL as the All-Star break is here after two years without the game. There have only been two games in the last five years as the NHL tries to get back to normal for the first time in a long time. In 2010 it was the Olympics that cancelled the game while 2013 saw the game become a casualty to the lockout and 2014 saw another Olympics eliminate the break. For many that is absolutely fine as the All-Star game is one of the more polarizing events in the NHL.
