NHL Week in Review (January 11-17)

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.

2014-15 NHL Preview: Metropolitan Division

The Metropolitan Division does not have the most popular name in the NHL as many did not like it when the NHL announced the new division last year. Yet there is no other name that could describe this division any better. It is exactly that, a Metropolitan division with some of the biggest cities in the NHL in the division. New York is represented with their two teams alongside New Jersey from across the Hudson. Pittsburgh and Philadelphia also have their cities represented in the division.

2014-15 NHL Preview: Central Division

The Central division saw a facelift in 2013-14 and with the adjustment of teams it was expected that one would rule them all. The Chicago Blackhawks had been the rulers of the old Central division for years and have been Stanley Cup favourites for the same amount of time. They went into last year as favourites again to win a division with a lot of questions. They seemed like the only sure shot in the division that was full of young teams and unsure talent. Then the season started and a team that many thought as a rebuilding team began to take control of the division.

2013-14 NHL Preview: Metropolitan Division (Part 2)

The Newest name division might not have a name that rolls off of the tongue but it is pretty accurate. The Metropolitan Division is just that as it features some of the biggest markets in the NHL. It may not have the Maple Leafs or the Canadiens but the size of the cities that love hockey in this division are much bigger. It will feature two states that have some of the biggest followings in the game while also including some of the largest Eastern cities.

NHL Week in Review (Oct. 16-22)

Sports have always been an avenue for personal achievements no matter what league someone plays in. When a number of athletes are put together the best of them always wants to show that they are the best that ever played in the league. The fans also love to say that their favorite player was the best at what he did. This is the basis of statistics in pro sports as athletes are continually in pursuit of stats while still winning and fans love to see a statistical race.
