Win, Lose or Draw?

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
The fallout of last nights marathon is starting to be felt throughout the city. Yes, the Canucks finally ended the game in the fourth period of overtime and I am sure that everyone has a story about how they stayed awake for the entire thing or they couldn't handle it and went to bed, but how much did the game cost the Canucks. Behind all the rumors that the Stars were...

Burrowing Under Your Skin

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
For the Canuck fans who follow them tenaciously you've most likely noticed that Alexander Burrows has been a marked man all year. There's always extra pushes and face rubs whenever he's on the ice. Cooke and Kesler are normally the agitators when it comes to trying to get temper tantrums flaring but this year it's Burrows who's the prime agitator. Every team needs a pl...
*Disclaimer: The following is a purely hypothetical and fictional re-creation of the summer of 2008. It is unknown to me whether any of that summer’s UFA’s that I bind to the Rangers now would have signed with New York then for the same terms which they signed with their actual teams. It seems to me that the wrong Glen was in charge of the New York Rangers in the su...
John Tortorella, Sean Avery, Donald Brashear... do I really need to say more? Okay I'll add in Matt Cooke just for laughs. Tortorella complained to reporters after his Rangers lost 8-3 to the defending Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins Saturday night that Cooke intentionally hit Rangers forward Artem Anisimov in the head and that the linesman who got hit several times tr...

Cooke

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
For the record, I like Matt Cooke. I think he's a player that brings a good combination of grit and skill to the rink on a daily basis. The Penguins are a better team with him in the line-up. That said, Cooke's hit on Marc Savard the other night is unacceptable. Even if Cooke had kept his arm against his body, in what would have been a completely legal play, I still ...

Intent

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
As I have discussed this with another HB blogger (Ice), we are on the same page in reference to Cooke. As Ice noted in the larger sense what needs to end is the INTENT from the players. We can also throw in the lack of respect that the players have for each other as well. I originally mentioned INTENT because in all the hits the intent appears to be to injure the play...

Hits to the Head

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
I haven't seen the Matt Cooke hit and I don't care to. This blog is not about whether or not it was a clean hit. With that out of the way what I have seen is a lot of people commenting about how dirty the hit was. What I want to know is how many people would be saying that if Savard had stood back up and skated away. I bet most would ignore it. It's just a fact of our l...

Blindsided

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
I have been saying to anyone that will listen (not many)...for some time now...that it's not hits to the head that are the problem in the NHL, it's the blindside hits that create the most potential for injury. I'll get to that more in a second... When it comes to hits to the head, the NHL is in a very difficult spot in terms of making rules that apply specifically to...
After a dissappointing finish in the first round, it is apparent that the culture of our team needs a bit of a shake. I think we have a very skilled team, but there are quite a few changes that need to be made. Mostly we need more players that will be more accountable and play a leadership role. We have a team of boys but we need a team of men. In making this blog, I t...

Touché

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
I took French in high school...but was never very good at speaking it and don't remember much of it (I know, some French Canadien is saying to himself "Stupid American!" ). But I do know what the popular culture translation of "Touché" is... Sometimes, as the saying goes, "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em...". While not exactly what the Penguins did on Tuesday night ...

Savard Out? Do We Care?

Posted Monday | Comments 0
The trade rumors for Bruins center Marc Savard continued today, specifically pertaining to the Bruins shipping their star center off to the desert with the Phoenix Coyotes. Savard, who easily could never be back to his prime form, has been the Bruins leading scorer each full season since he was acquired after the 2005-2006 season. He has been a leader for the B's and in so...
I am not a fan of brawls. Never have been. They are the ultimate way for a lesser team to equalize themselves with a better team. But why all the blame on the Islanders? Are they not just another team that has had to compete in a league that is so uncoodinated with discipline and suspensions that it encourages teams to handle things themselves? After all, the...

Chara...Cooke...Suspensions

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
[b]On Chara[/b] - This is a tough one to call when it comes to intent. The result is obviously disasterous ...BUT...a few more feet up the boards and it likely would have only been a body check that Pacioretty would have gotten up from. The much more important question is... If a player injures another player via a penalty...like a late hit in this case...shouldn't...
How many games should Cooke be suspended for this time? Click the link below and post a comment. [url]http://sabreshockeycentral.com/2011/03/20/matt-cooke-up-for-suspension/[/url]

Matt Cooke: Indefensible

Posted Monday | Comments 0
Those of you that have read my blogs before know that I think Matt Cooke has some skill as a hockey player -- he serves a useful purpose as an agitator/checking forward, is a great penalty killer and also has some offensive skill. You also know that I wrote a blog back when Cooke hit Savard and called for a suspension even though, at the time, Cooke's hit was considered...
After the Islanders played the Penguins a couple of months back in what is now labeled the fight night on Long Island, I wrote a blog about the game, the outcome (suspensions), and Mario's feedback afterwards. While I am not a big time journalist or even a well known blogger I still feel that I have a responsibility to my readers to be fair when it is called for. A...

Matt Cooke: Will He Change?

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Matt Cooke came out with a few statements yesterday saying he needs to change and that he will follow up those words with actions. In fact, he stated a few times that his "future" actions would speak for him. We all know his past actions have too, in ways that were less than flattering. As someone who has watched him play for the past 3 years, I would like to think he c...

Yahoo! - Same Old Story

A quick look at the Yahoo! NHL front page shows this as the main article Same Old Story - New and improved Matt Cooke boards a guy [url]http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/blog/puck_daddy/post/New-and-improved-Matt-Cooke-boards-a-guy;_ylt=AijT3EETh3umNq2YGz92hut7vLYF?urn=nhl-wp13351[/url] Those of you that read my blog...(I think 5 now?) know I have spoken out against Cooke...

Pens are coming back

Posted Monday | Comments 0
2-1 Jets after 40 minutes. Fantastic chances for both teams in the period. Pavelec has been unbelievable. This must be that goaltender that I heard about in the early part of last season, holy smokes. This could easily be a 5-5 game if the teams had buried the plethora of chances they have gotten. Refs pooched a goalie interference call (or should I say non-call) ...

Changes to the next step

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
I am new to the whole blog game. But not afraid to share an opinion. So to start a little bit about myself. I am an avid fan of the NHL, I live it and breath it. I love talking about it, only problem, no one close to me really is into it as much as I am. So that is why I have come here to share my views (and yes some may be biased more towards Vancouver as I have been rais...
As the hockey world awaits the fate of Matt Cooke for his knee-on-knee hit on Colorado's Tyson Barrie, it is perhaps worth taking a minute to think about the legacy that Cooke's career has shaped over the past decade or so. Upon doing so, one may discern certain obvious patterns - the object of this post. Think for a minute about what that word 'pattern' really means, for ...
