    Hockey fans all over the world are certainly grateful that by this time next week the NHL will be back in action.

    I miss the NHL as much as anybody, but I have to admit that there is an awful lot to like about those lesser-known hockey leagues. For one thing, you have awesome team names you don’t get in the NHL, like the Adirondack Phantoms, Charlotte Checkers, Lake Eerie Monsters, and Rockford IceHogs. And for another […]

    In the world of sports, you wouldn’t think that there is much an athlete can accomplish in just three seconds, but as we’ve learned in the past, that couldn’t be further from the truth. For starters, there was little-known MMA fighter Steve Ramirez who needed just three seconds to record a knockout at a PureCombat […]

    Hey, NHL, who needs you? You think other hockey leagues don’t give us great goals and line brawls?  Well, they do!  And while sometimes the highlights from these other leagues aren’t quite as impressive at the ones we’d get from the NHL,that certainly isn’t always the case.

    Approximately two months ago, the Pittsburgh Penguins waived left winger Steve MacIntyre and sent him to their AHL affiliate, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.  However, with Sidney Crosby expected to make his return to the line-up in the near future, the NHL’s Penguins may want to consider calling MacIntyre back up to “the show” so that they […]

    When Los Angeles Kings defenseman Rob Scuderi sent Columbus Blue Jackets forward Jason Chimera soaring head over heals with a hip check a few years back, we had some trouble determining whether the hit was clean or dirty.  Did Scuderi go to low?  Should Chimera have been prepared to endure such a check?  It was […]

    Now where was this move during the NHL All-Star Skills Competition? I simply don’t get it.  Every year the NHL seems to give their Breakaway Challenge a shot and every year the participants seem to disappoint us with their lack of creativity.  After all, how many times can we watch a player scoop the puck […]
