    Most organizations came into today’s NHL trade deadline looking to improve some aspect of their team, whether it was scoring, defense or any other area.  As for the Boston Bruins, one area they didn’t need to improve on was team toughness.  The B’s already have a plethora of tough guys, including Shawn Thornton, Adam McQuaid […]

    Here is more evidence of why hockey players may be some of the toughest athletes in the world.

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Stortini vs. Orr – 12/14/10

    The Edmonton Oilers’ Zack Stortini seems to have a knack for picking on the biggest enforcers the NHL has to offer.  He encountered another one of those big boys last night when the Oilers hosted the Toronto Maple Leafs, and it was only a matter of time before he and Colton Orr renewed acquaintances once […]

    It’s about time! I understand that Canadians love their hockey and do not necessarily require the services of some scantily clad sexy females dancing around the arena in order to put butts in the seats, but I am almost certain that most of the men attending future Edmonton Oilers games wont mind ogling the Oilers Octane girls.

    This bout appeared to be a mismatch of epic proportions.  During Sunday night’s game between the Edmonton Oilers and the Chicago Blackhawks, the Oilers’ Zack Stortini had a moment of bravery and decided to challenge the Blackhawks’ John Scott to a fight.  Big mistake! Standing at an imposing 6’8, 258-pounds, Scott had 4-inches and 43 […]
