NHL Week in Review (November 30-December 6)

This week in the NHL was full of goodbyes and celebrations of great careers as a captain retired and a legend passed away. As Daniel Alfredsson walked away from the game John Beliveau passed away and the concentration, fittingly, was on them for most of the week. Another legend made news though as Martin Brodeur returned to the NHL. Last year Brodeur remained with his one and only team playing with the New Jersey Devils. It was clear though, that his time in New Jersey was limited.

NHL Week in Review (November 23-29)

Teams in the NHL are constantly adjusting to the new way of doing things as the NHL continues to change around them. It wasn’t too long ago that teams did not have to worry about players leaving their team at any point. When a player was drafted by a team he stayed with that team for his entire career. The only time that the player left was when the team no longer wanted him near the end of their career. That used to create a connection with players and the ability to follow a player the entire way through their career.

2014-15 NHL Preview: Atlantic Division

The Atlantic Division is a mix of some of the best teams and some of the worst teams in the NHL as the division is one of the hardest to figure out. On one end of the spectrum lies the Boston Bruins, Tampa Bay Lightning, and Montreal Canadiens. These three teams have proven to be some of the most talented teams in the league over the last few years. The Bruins are the team that leads the pack with one of the best combinations of skill and toughness that make them a true contender in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Meanwhile the Lightning and Canadiens have been built with skill in mind as both are loaded with offensive talent although the toughness has suffered on both of the teams.

2014 Olympic Preview: Rink Sports

The Olympics are a great display of many sports that the majority of sports fans never look for and never really try to watch. They are a number of sports that are not followed by the majority of people and that only take focus every four years. They are not full of stars and only have a few people that are recognized outside of the four years between games. They are the forgotten sports more often than not and are full of the forgotten athletes.

The Season That Almost Wasn’t (NHL Season in Review)

October is a great sports month for any sports fan as it can be the busiest time of year for the sports world. The National Football League is in the second month of their season, Major League Baseball is in the midst of the playoffs, and the National Basketball Association is just beginning their season.

As the Stanley Cup approaches the end of the NHL season is coming fast and so teams begin to get themselves in order. For the 7 teams left in the playoffs the only concern is to continue winning on their way to a hopeful Stanley Cup.

NHL Week in Review (April 15-21)

The NHL playoffs took a turn last weekend as the usual intense skilled playoff hockey turned into an all out brawl. The playoffs are usually a very intense period in the calendar as every game becomes important. One loss in a bad way could mean the end of any momentum you had built up during the regular season. This makes every player a little more wound up than usual and that forces them to do things they may not do usually.
