NHL Week in Review (May 27 – June 7)

The Stanley Cup finals this year was one of the least anticipated finals in recent years as the New Jersey Devils and Los Angeles Kings did not excite many people. The matchup had only happened once this year and there was very little history between them. Series tend to be more exciting when the teams know each other and have a history because the players have that little extra motivation to win.

NHL Week in Review (Jan. 1-7)

The NHL is at a disadvantage in the USA as they have to battle very established leagues for entertainment dollars. This forces them to come up with new and innovative ways to attract more fans to come out to the games. One of these was created in 2008. The NHL Winter Classic started in 2008 as a way to showcase the NHL on a big stage with a big hyped up event.

NHL Week in Review (Dec. 4-10)

Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment is one of the most valuable Sports and Entertainment companies in the world. As the owner of Toronto FC, the Toronto Raptors, Toronto Marlies, and the Toronto Maples Leafs as well as the Air Canada Centre, BMO Field, and Maple Leaf Square they are one of the most valuable companies in sports. A lot of this value is directly due to their connection with their first team the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Cold is back and so is the NHL (Season Preview)

Last year the NHL saw yet another record losing streak fall unfortunately for Toronto fans it was not their Stanley Cup streak. Instead it was the Boston Bruins streak who had not won a Stanley Cup since the 1971-72 season. It also saw a streak continue as the six Canadian teams again were not able to break their 17 year Stanley Cup drought. They again had a chance and a very good chance with the Vancouver Canucks but were unable to pull off the win. This left the Boston Bruins as the defending champs and the Vancouver Canucks as the defending Western
Conference champions for the second time in Franchise history.
