There's really no way this can end well. The drama surrounding the Phoenix Coyotes has been going on for months. It's almost certainly hurt the morale of the team, and it's been terrible publicity for a league that already struggles to maintain credibility outside of the Canadian market. Part of establishing that credibility has been trying to prove that hockey is a sport that can be univer... Read More »

The New-Look Ducks

Posted August 5, 2009
For the first time since the PPG line of 2006-2007, the Ducks have legitimate secondary scoring. The signing of Saku Koivu and the shipping of Chris Pronger to Philadelphia for Joffrey Lupul (and Luca Sbisa + Draft picks) accomplishes something that has been sorely lacking in Anaheim since Edmonton snatched Dustin Penner with a huge offer sheet and Andy McDonald was shipped to clear cap room fo...
