NHL Week in Review (December 25-31)

The NHL continues to churn out their outdoor games but they are becoming a lot less special than they used to be with the over-saturation of the events in the past few years.

The NHL may be a league for the young generation but the veterans are having an impact more than ever and with the playoff race in full swing they will only get more important.

NHL Week in Review (February 22-28)

It is that time again in hockey as one of the most exciting days in the NHL schedule is back for another year. The NHL trade deadline has been made into one of the biggest dates in hockey as it is one of the few major North American leagues that has more than enough action on the deadline day. There may not always be the biggest names or huge, ground-breaking trades but there are always moves on the last day.

NHL Week in Review (December 28-January 3)

The New Year is here and as has become tradition that means the Winter Classic rang in the new year. The Winter Classic started as a spectacle for the NHL that really never had any of those types of games. It is akin to Thanksgiving Day in the NFL as the NHL focuses on the big outdoor game that marks the start of a new year. The game is also strategic for the NHL as they host it just when most other big sports are winding down. The NFL is heading into the playoffs while NCAA football is nearing the end of the bowl season.

The offseason for the NHL was much less nerve racking for fans as there was no debate surrounding the start of the season. Instead of an offseason full of meetings between people in suits this season was about preparation for a new season. That doesn’t mean that the offseason didn’t have its share of meetings between people with suits but the CBA was not the main conversation.

NHL Week in Review (Jan. 29 – Feb. 4)

The unofficial halfway point of the season and original Winter Classic was much of the same thing we had all seen before. The NHL All-Star game was a display of offence as it usually is with the defences taking a break for the game. This year the two teams earned a following as well with the NHL All-Star draft creating an obvious separation.

NHL Week in Review (Jan. 22-28)

The All-Star game is a long standing tradition in professional sports as every league looks to showcase the talent in their ranks. It seems like a great idea and also seems to be something that most people would want to watch but that is not the case. The All-Star game is one of the strangest pieces of professional sports simply because it is one of the least popular aspects of a season.
