Solving Michigan’s Blue Line Puzzle

By David Malinowski (@dmmm14) It’s hard to believe that nearly two years ago, Michigan was losing some of its best defensemen over the last decade. If they weren’t borderline stars, at a minimum they were reliable, regardless of what the end result was. Two seasons ago, Jon Merrill, Lee Moffie, Mac Bennett, and Jacob Trouba were […]

Pittsburgh Penguins’ Cap Structure a Huge Problem for New Management

  By: Ryan Kiray (@RyanK_THG) Few people realize that the last emperor of Rome was not deposed until 476 CE.

Boston Bruins Offseason Outlook

By: Mitch Cole (@DirtyWaterBuzz) A stellar season has come to a disappointing end. It’s a shame, really. The expectations were through the roof for this Bruins team. President’s Trophy winners in the regular season, and subsequently ousted Detroit in just five games. But I’m not here to talk about the disappointment. It’s time to look […]

Questions surround London Knights after disappointing showing vs Edmonton

In a game where the loser would find themselves between a rock and a hard place, the London Knights wound up doing very little in a 5-2 loss to the Edmonton Oil Kings. Undisciplined, unfocused, and out of sorts were the Knights, who committed nine of the 14 penalties in Sunday night’s contest, not to […]

CHL Prospect Report: Edmonton Oil Kings vs Guelph Storm – May 17

By Todd Cordell (@ToddCordell) The Guelph Storm opened up their tournament in style with a 5-2 win over the Edmonton, and showed why they’re probably the Memorial Cup favourites early on in the tournament.

The time I broke the Memorial Cup

In the summer of 2005, yours truly was a pudgy young boy attended a hockey camp in hopes of improving his playing ability. Despite having zero foot-speed or any endurance whatsoever — it wasn’t uncommon to see me hunched over on the bench with a puffer in hand — I continued to trudge away and […]
