The hockey factor city by city

Posted Wednesday | Comments 32
I though it might be interesting to see how hockey ranks across NHL cities compared to other major sports in that city, this is my opinion as i have watched hockey in 15 different cities and discussed hockey with many fans in the cities that i was in, i hope to add 2 more cities this year in completing all 30 teams down the road, please feel free to correct me if your from...
Happy long weekend puckheads!!! -I have been playing NHL08's demo almost non stop since it became available. The skating engine is unreal, as is the AI for the computer controlled players. It's a free download on XBox Live, for your 360 console. Well worth a DL and play for free. -Speaking of the NHL games this year, the date for NHL 2K8 was bumped up to September 1...

The San Jose Sharks are finally winning the games they should win. We have seen this team drop many games to divisional rivals who sit below them in the standings too often. For many years the Sharks have had trouble taking down inferior opponents, but that looks to possibly have changed. Many people have been saying woop-dee-doo they won 4 straight, ha against the Coyotes...
I have a serious case of the Mondays, I do not even really know exactly what that means, but I heard that lady say it in [i]Office Space[/i], so it must mean something. I have been spending my past weeks getting my new home ready to live in this week. Thankfully no one was planning on coming to our place for Thanksgiving because it would have been crappy eating on T.V. tra...
It has been a week since the last Sharks talkcast and yet we have only seen one Sharks game since then. This schedule has just been absolutely ridiculous so far this season, what a joke. It has been hard for this Sharks to gain any momentum thus far, too many days between most games. Although their best stretch of the season came in a week where they played Phoenix three t...

Oh What a Night

Posted Thursday | Comments 3
Last nights Sharks victory extended the win streak to 3. I normally do not start calling them streaks until after three, but due to the start of this season I will make an exception. This streak feels different though. The four game streak where San Jose took three from Phoenix and a game from Dallas did not have the same feeling to it. It almost seemed like everyone kind ...
It was a complete team effort last night. Ten different Sharks players had points,and Nabokov was solid once again. The two goals by Vancouver could have been prevented by simply clearing the puck out of the zone, but hey no complaints, overall the team was good again. Patrick Marleau and Milan Michalek scored mirrored goals of each other, showing the speed and drive we ha...

Crazy Talk

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Fire Ruff? Come on...I love these people who think by firing one of the best coaches in the NHL you somehow make Derek Roy a better player. We have seen these guys sell us "next year" and excuses for how many years now? It is time for Pegula to make good on his promise and make the necessary changes to get this team closer to a Stanley Cup. And he has to do so by t...

Kessel the Chemist

Posted Monday | Comments 3
Phil Kessel of the Toronto Maple Leafs has consistently lead his team with one of, if not the highest points and goal totals since his tenure with the Leafs began. With this information alone you would be hard pressed to understand why then in a fan base so passionate about winning, many remain apprehensive in their support of this 26 year old goal scorer. From the ver...
Almost all the chatter surrounding the San Jose Sharks lately has been about Joe Thornton and, to a lesser extent, Patrick Marleau. The former has expressed through his brother-agent that he *really* doesn't want to leave the Sharks, while Marleau doesn't believe that he'll be traded.rnrnUnless you're a fly on the wall of Doug Wilson's office, it's hard to know for sure wh...

Hart N Soul Hockey Talk

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
I'm back again for another segment of no one's favourite quick take segment. When I write this blog I promise to do a few things. I will not bore you with stats that you will no doubt just graze your eyes over, or not even look at. I will not make trade rumours up. Anyone can simply look at a team's strengths and weaknesses. then find another team in the NHL that mat...
The Columbus Blue Jackets are apparently underwhelmed by the offers for right winger Cam Atkinson. Atkinson has been rumored to be on the move since the trade deadline and has come close to being moved. At last year's trade deadline, Colorado, Boston, New York (Rangers), and Montreal were interested in him. Instead of getting moved, the Connecticut native signed a 3 year, ...
1. Scott Hartnell for Colin Wilson will happen on trade deadline day. 2. Columbus will have a second half very much like last season's. 3. Curtis McElhinney will backup Jonas Korpisalo until Sergei Bobrovsky comes back. 4. Jared Boll will be waived and sent to the AHL. 5. Zach Werenski joins Columbus this season. 6. One or both of Dalton Prout and Jus...

CBJ- Seth Jones and Contract

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
In early January, the Columbus Blue Jackets traded center Ryan Johansen to the Nashville Predators in exchange for defenseman Seth Jones. Jones is a pending RFA at the end of this season, and will be expecting a major raise after two really good seasons with the Nashville Predators. After seeing and hearing what he did for the Predators against the Blackhawks without ...

With the recent announcements of outdoor games in 2017, and the recent outdoor games for 2016, is it time for the Columbus Blue Jackets to throw their hats into the ring? First, let's go over the games for 2016. The Winter Classic was on New Year's Day between the Montreal Canadiens and the Boston Bruins. Not to down the city of Boston and the people of Massachusetts, b...
Earlier this month, the Blue Jackets have witnessed the returns of David Clarkson and Jared Boll. These two provide secondary scoring and grit that this team needs. To the injured reserve are Jack Johnson and Brandon Saad, two of the club's most important players. Johnson is a two way defenseman that will soon be the "veteran" on this team once they find a taker for Fe...
Columbus Dispatch/Blue Jackets Aaron Portzline answered readers' questions during an hourlong Here's the transcript: Note: Transcript is from April 13. My answers will follow instead of his. 1. Do you think the NHL will adapt the AHL's standings system of winning percentage trumping points? In your view, does this help balance the impact of 3 point games? I t...
Welcome to another Q & A session of mine. This time, I answer questions from Rob Mixer from NHL.com and his Mailbag. These questions are posted through Twitter, which explains the hashtags. What's a bigger need for the CBJ, improving the defense or finding help at center? Both are very important things to look find at any time of year, and they are two of the h...
Over the past couple of years, there have troubles around NHL players and law enforcement and court systems. Seymon Varlamov. Slava Voynov. Clayton Stoner. Sean Avery. Ian White. Aaron Ward. Dan LaCouture. Jack Johnson. Linden Vey. Mike Richards. Jarrett Stoll. Alex Galchenyuk. Devante Smith-Pelly. Garett Ross. Patrick Kane. Evander Kane. And the list continues to grow. ...

In a recently written article by "Down Goes Brown" on The Hockey News, Sean McInode writes who are five general managers besides Chuck Fletcher of the Minnesota Wild to be on the hot seat. The very first one he mentions is Jarmo Kekalainen, stating: (via THN) "On the one hand, you could argue that Kekalainen hasn't been given enough time in Columbus....
