    9 Most Badass Enforcers In NHL History

    It appears that the old-fashioned NHL enforcer may be an endangered species. With what we now know about the long-term danger of concussions, plus the recent rash of tragic deaths of NHL tough guys, there’s just no room in hockey anymore for guys whose only skill is beating other guys to a pulp. Some hockey […]

    9 Best 3rd Jerseys In The NHL

    For NHL teams, third jerseys are huge cash cows. That’s because gullible hockey fans (like myself) will go out and buy the third jersey replicas the day they are released, even though they already own their teams’ “regular” jerseys. On top of that, historic franchises (like the Rangers or Maple Leafs) can change up these […]

    9 Sexy Hockey Fans

    Chicks dig hockey. It’s a scientific fact that the NHL has more hot girls per capita than any other sport in North America (except college football).

    Picture Of The Day: Gretzky’s Daughter Is A “Great One”

    Most people probably thought that Wayne Gretzky’s sperm would be capable of creating the next greatest hockey player to take the NHL by storm.  That hasn’t been the case.  Instead, what the Great One’s baby batter has created is a first baseman for the Chicago Cubs, and a lovely lady by the name of Paulina […]

    13 NHL Careers Cut Short By Concussions

    The 2011-12 NHL season is only a month away, but people who follow the league aren’t talking about Stanley Cup contenders and pretenders, hot prospects, or big trade buzz. Instead, everyone is talking about concussions, and whether the best hockey player in the world, Sidney Crosby, will even play this year. There are even some […]

    Jonathan Toews’ Girlfriend Gabrielle Velasquez Is A Smokeshow (Gallery)

    Cameras caught Jonathan Toews at the Cubs game on Sunday, and he brought a friend.  No, that friend was not linemate Patrick Kane.  It was his girlfriend, Gabrielle Velasquez. Although Towes and Velasquez did get some camera time, we were left unsatisfied and wanting to see more of the Blackhawks captain’s blonde bombshell.  Now we […]

    This Day In Sports History (July 21st) – Wayne Gretzky

    It was on this day in 1996 that Wayne Gretzky signed a two-year contract with the New York Rangers.  The signing reunited Gretzky with long-time Edmonton Oiler teammate Mark Messier. Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier spent nine very successful years together in Edmonton winning four Stanley Cups.  However, their reunion in New York was short-lived, […]

    Picture Of The Day: Vancouver Canucks Have A New Logo

    After posting footage of Nathan Kotylak’s tear-filled public apology on Monday, I thought that would be the last time I posted anything having to do with last week’s riot in Vancouver.  That was before I was informed that the Vancouver Canucks would be changing their logo to something that more appropriately represented their rioting fan […]

    Ryan Getzlaf vs. Bobby Ryan, Part 2 (Video)

    During last year’s NHL Awards Ceremony, Ryan Getzlaf (with some help from Scott Niedermayer) beat Bobby Ryan in a one-on-one challenge, earning the right to continue calling his American teammate “Silver.”  This year’s Awards Ceremony took place last night in Las Vegas and Bobby Ryan was looking for revenge.

    10 NHL Players When They Were Kids

    Seeing a National Hockey League player one month into the playoffs with his raggedy beard and marked up face makes it easy to forget that at some point these men were all a bunch of little boys that used to have their mothers dress them, comb their hair and walk them to school.  My how […]

    Brad Marchand Rapping Sounds As Bad As You Might Expect (Video)

    The Boston Bruins couldn’t get Wiz Khalifa to sing at their Stanley Cup victory parade on Saturday, so they had to settle for Brad Marchand’s rendition of “Black and Yellow” instead. Marchand spent most of the finals beating up on the Sedin twins, but with the Cup back in Boston, he decided to dish out […]
