Unlike many writers, who hide their inner fan behind a thin veneer of professionalism, I enjoy the world of the possible…and impossible. Rumors, the life blood of any fantasy artist. I often hear local radio hacks suggesting a show about rumors and possible trade options is a show wasted on the lowest common denominator. I say hogwash! It is you sir’s who are a waste. Imagination you lack... Read More »
First off, while I love broadcasting legend Bob Cole, Mike Emrick of NBC and Devils radio is the best in the business at the moment. I love the creativity and dark tones Emrick brings to the games, while his sidekicks, Eddy Olczyk and Pierre Mcguire are always amusing and insightful. I say this as I enjoy taking in the NBC game of the week: Pens V. Caps! Sure to be a battle.

Concerning NHL year-end awards, deciding who is the most deserving candidate to take home (x) awards, is always a fickle question. Take the James Norris, for example. Some people would argue that unless a younger player was unquestionably the most dominant patroller of the back end, the trophy should otherwise be awarded to a previous winner.

Social media like Twitter and Facebook while marketed as tools of openness and connection provide greater concealment as they are devoid of real intimacy, an essential component of most meaningful relationships.

As a hockey player, I compare to...That depends. If I'm playing forward I compare to Jaromir Jagr or Peter Forsberg. I possess above average size and am almost impossible to knock of the puck. I'm also an excellent passer and stickhandler. I like to have the puck on my stick and wait for teamates to get open. As a defenseman, which is a new found position for me, I compare with players such as Nicklas Kronwall and PK Subban (Minus the huge open ice hits). I enjoy carrying the puck up the ice, will push other guys around if need be, enjoy blocking shots, and creating offense.
