Oswald Did It Again?

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
Originally my blog was going to be on a different topic altogether, and I'll get back to that topic in the very near future. For now, however, we have to turn our attention to the Ducks vs. Wild series. But the Wild are already out, you say. You're right. You won't find one Wild fan anywhere homer enough to say we're still in it. Nor will you find one that can s...
Minnesota Wild tough guy Derek Boogaard is hosting a "fight camp" in his home province of Saskatchewan. His wingman, and sparring partner in this case, is his brother Aaron Boogaard, who recently signed a free agent contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins organization. You could imagine how well this is going over with the "soccer mom" NHL fans. Some journalists are call...

A Proposition for Fighting

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Recently the fighting debate has come back into the forefront. Derek Boogaard's actions of teaching children how to defend themselves on the ice has brought the debate back up to a boiling point, with no end in sight. I have a hard time with fighing because, as much as I love to watch a good fight, I can sympathize with those who feel that it has no part in the game. ...
As many of you are probably well aware Derek Boogaard along with his brother Aaron have started the Derek and Aaron Boogaard Fighting Camp. A camp solely designed to, like the name would suggest teach players the basics of how to fight in hockey. Not surprisingly this camp has come under heavy criticism with people claiming that this promotes fighting and encourages young ...

It all started during the regular season when teams complained to the NHL about Boogie going out and stretching out during the TV timeouts, they said he was trying to intimidate their team so the league asked Boogie to take a seat while the Fans of Minnesota watched other teams tough guys who are 2 inches smaller stretch their limbs at will during all of the TV timeouts.

The Crowded Locker Room

Posted Monday | Comments 0
An NHL team is allowed to field a team of 23. That's 12 forwards dressed, 6 defensemen and 2 goaltenders. Currently, the Minnesota Wild has a team of, seemingly, 18,000! Ok...Ok...Maybe a little less than that. As of the Vancouver game, however, they have a team of more than 23. Here is a list, included with what their contract is looking like: [b][u]Forwards (15):...
I wanted to know what was the best stat to look for when determining playoff bound teams. I dug up team stats for the last 3 seasons and broke them down. What I found was not surprising but very intriguing. Defense, defense, defense. Over the last 3 seasons GAA has been the biggest determination of who made the playoffs. 07-08 13/16 lowest GAA made playoffs ...

The Omerta of Depression

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
We've heard it before. We reacted the same each and every time. It may have been a family member, friend, co-worker, or anyone in our lives. You hear stories about the son of so-and-so who was found hanging in the kitchen, or whats-her-name's dad turned the car on in the garage and went to sleep. Every time the reaction is the same. Yet, it keeps happening. We hav...

Vote for Youth Hockey

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
This summer, I took part in a charity ice hockey tournament called Checking For Charity. Although it was a painful way to learn just how badly my skills have deteriorated since the last time I played regularly, it was one of the most fulfilling weekend experiences of my life. I discovered the event around the same time that I learned about Defending The Blueline(DTBL), a...
