NHL Week in Review (December 14-20)

The halfway point of the NHL season is approaching and for some teams it is desperation time as they need to figure it out now if they want to be in the playoff hunt. Plenty of teams are sitting right on the edge trying to find another gear that will give them a boost. These teams are only a winning streak away from entering the playoff conversation but there are still those handful of teams that need a lot more help.

2014-15 NHL Preview: Pacific Division

The old Pacific Division is much like the new Pacific division as the top teams from the West Coast remain the top teams in the Pacific. The California trio continue their dominance of the Pacific in a massive surge of California hockey. When the NHL decided to expand to the West Coast it was thought to be a terrible idea. The land of sunshine and beaches had no idea what hockey was and putting a pro team there was sure to fail.

NHL Week in Review (November 10-16)

The season is through the first month and a half and teams are beginning to figure out where they may truly stand in the league. The quick starters are now beginning to show some signs of wear and the teams that started quickly are starting to show what they might be. There is no sneaking up on anyone anymore for these teams as there is more than enough information on them for teams to plan and shut them down.

2013-14 NHL Preview: Pacific Division (Part 1)

The NHL continues to grow and despite many teams in the south struggling to get by there is one area that is not following suit with other non-traditional markets. The west coast of the USA, or more accurately California, was never a hockey market when the Los Angeles Kings entered the NHL in 1967. It was one of the first major expansions in the NHL and they would look to the West Coast to add two teams.

NHL Week in Review (January 20-26)

The NHL is in a constant battle between the old and the new as tradition is constantly fighting the new guard. It is a league that constantly looks back to their history while still evolving as a sport. The NHL is one of the oldest organizations in North America with the Stanley Cup first handed out in 1893.

2013 NHL Preview: The Northwest Division

If the Central Division is the strongest in the West than the Northwest Division is the division who paid for the Central’s success. With four teams making the playoffs from the Central in 2011-12 the Northwest and Pacific were left to battle for the second half of the spots. It is fair to say that the Northwest lost this fight as only one team would make the playoffs from the division.

2013 World Juniors Report (Day 3)

Yesterday I wrote about the comments made by Nail Yakupov when he called the Canadians a dirty team. I laid out the reasons to why the Canadians may be perceived as a dirty team but are actually just playing a different style of game. Of course only a few hours late the Canadians would take the ice against the Slovakians in a game that was built to be the upset of the tournament.

2013 World Junior Report (Day 2)

The Juniors got through their second day as the last two teams to start their tournament with the USA and the Swiss playing their first game. Both teams would take on teams that they should have beat. That is exactly what they did as the Swiss easily handled the Latvians and the Americans walked through the Germans.
