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: 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.

The realignment has been a big story in the preseason as new divisions mean new opponents and new rivalries. This change in alignment for the NHL would all come down to one thing as one team’s move would require a massive change. The Atlanta Thrashers were struggling in 2011 and instead of fighting two battles, Phoenix would go under NHL ownership, the NHL decided that they would give up.

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.

NHL Week in Review (Oct. 30-Nov. 5)

A goalie is an essential part to e hockey teams as they are the last line of defence and can easily take over a game. There has rarely been a Stanley Cup Champion without a very good performance by a goalie. Whether it is Tim Thomas last year with the Bruins or Patrick Roy with the Canadiens and the Avalanche the common denominator has been a great goalie. This has become a big aspect to many teams as a lot of teams continue to look for goalies that can guide them to the Stanley Cup.

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.
