Interview with Ajay Baines

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
Earlier this week I was able to get in touch with Hamilton Bulldogs forward Ajay Baines. Ajay played his junior hockey for the Kamloops Blazers, and broke into the AHL in 2000 playing for the Norfolk Admirals. Ajay played for them for 5 and a half seasons, becoming the franchise's all-time leading scorer. He signed a contract with the Hamilton Bulldogs last season, and hel...
[u][b]JayBo to Philadelphia? In a NY Minute![/b][/u] With all due respect to Danny Briere, I would drive the face of the franchise for Homer's 2007/08 off-season acquisitions directly to the airport, speeding past cops on I-95 and waving them on to give me a police escort and give Ryan Parent or Randy Jones bus fare, two bucks for a cup of coffee an old copy of Maxim i...
This will be the future headline in all the newspapers, tv stations and the internet once the free agent period begins on July 1, 2009. Brian Burke looks to place his own big stamp on the Toronto Maple Leafs this summer and rebuild this team back into a playoff contender this off season when the UFA period begins. The questions many Maple Leaf fans have, myself included is...

Canucks thoughts and questions

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
I am just curious to know how many Canucks fans want the Sedins back and what your thoughts are on them signing a 12 year deal? Also I still don't believe that Gaborik rumors, he is highly skilled. But Gillis likes grit and Gaborik has been prone to injury. I have a weird feeling that Sundin will be back next season. I'd really like to see Wellwood back with a 2 ye...

Bettman's Forgettable Reign

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Though most likely no one will read this little blog I have mustered up (justly so), I’d like to voice my opinion on the magnificent reign of Gary Bettman (insert sarcastic face emoticon here). Upon finishing up an outline for an upcoming term paper, I visited my twitter account. Low and behold, one of the best articles I’ve read on the infamous Gary Bu..ettman mad...

My Sip of Coffee in the Bigs

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
A blog written by Leaf reporter Howard Berger entitled "Close encounters Along the Way" about his memories celebrating 30 years in the business, inspired me to reflect on my very brief sports writing "career"- a full 3 MONTHS in the business. Reading Howard's stories were quite interesting and gave a personal side to reporter's lives who, in most cases, sports viewers k...

Where'd The Hate Go?

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Aside from some fire from defenseman Mark Stuart, I thought I was watching a home video of an eighth grade dance, and not a hockey game between the Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers on March 11. You know, girls on one side of the dance floor, boys on the other, and nary the twain shall meet. There was nothing special about Stuart’s fights with Dan Carcillo and Ian L...
With the addition Wednesday of Michel Goulet as their Western Professional Scout, the Calgary Flames have slowly surrounded Darryl Sutter with some much needed help for the upcoming season. Sutter has been on the hot seat with many fans, including myself, since the end of the season due to the Flames disappointing finish in last years regular season. With the addition o...

The Bouw-Meister!

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
Last year, the Calgary Flames traded for Jay Bouwmeester’s negotiating rights two days before the free agency period had opened and subsequently signed him to a 5-year deal with a cap hit of $6.68 million dollars per season. Jay Bouwmeester WAS the biggest off-season acquisition of last summer. A big ticket, free-wheeling defenceman who could quarterback a power play...

Flames continue slide

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
The Calgary Flames lost 2-1 to the New York Rangers tonight. The Flames had their chances to tie the game, but were stymied by the post, Martin Biron’s pads/glove, or a combination of both. This is an all too familiar tale. So what else can I say that hasn’t be said already. Nothing really, and so instead I will look at some individual efforts that have stu...

Mo-Vember ends with a W

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
With the win tonight the Flames finished the month of November with a 4-7-2 record – a far cry from last year’s 10-2-2 domination over the month of Moustaches. For his part, Jarome Iginla continued his November tirade scoring eight goals and adding five assists in 13 games. Not only did he score more, but Iginla began asserting himself more in the play. He was the ...

Non-Moves: Flames Strategy

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
The Flames decided not to go ballistic this weekend and probably for the best. Feaster, I thought, made some sound moves and really good non-moves. Come read my thoughts and remember to follow me on Twitter: http://www.thesportsroundup.com/2011/07/non-moves-flames-strategy.html Newman twitter.com/TSRNewman
The New York Islanders have signed Jay Pandolfo and Ryan Strome just in time before the start of the 2011-2012 season.

The Calgary Flames lost their fifth game in a row on Saturday afternoon in Dallas 4-1. The season is all but over. What's the problem though and why did they go on this slide? In my opinion, it's a losing mentality that's ingrained in the dressing room starting with the coach. Read more here: http://west.thecheckingline.com/blog/derrick-newman/calgary-flames...

Brent Sutter: The Bell Tolls

Three seasons with nothing to show for it. Is Brent Sutter's time in Calgary over? I think so. Read more here: http://west.thecheckingline.com/blog/derrick-newman/calgary-flames/brent-sutter-bell-tolls Newman
The predictable parting of ways between the Calgary Flames and Brent Sutter happened today. Three years of playoff-less hockey and a team in desperate need of a new identity eventually sunk Sutter. So who's next? Come join the discussion: http://west.thecheckingline.com/blog/derrick-newman/calgary-flames/brent-sutter-and-flames-part-ways Newman

Many of you flames fans out there including myself, are feeling very weary about managements goals that are said and un-said. Jay is a great hockey man, and may or may not have drafted the next Nieuwendyk, we'll just have to wait. Now clearly stuff needs to happen before on and after July first, beginning with the trade of failure Jay Bouwmeester. Jay hasn't even come clos...

Jay Feaster has come under heavy scrutiny since taking over as “acting” general manager of the Calgary Flames on December 28th 2010, however questions of his direction and lack of stated strategy have fans feeling confused and unsure of where the Flames are headed. The major question then is “Are things getting better or worse for the Calgary Flames hockey club?”. ...
[b]March 4th[/b] [b][i][u]Maple Leafs 4, New Jersey Devils 2[/u][/i][/b] For forty minutes, it was men against boys. James Reimer was sharp, but still was beaten four times; twice by Marek Zidlicky and twice saved by iron. Forty minutes, it was the defending Eastern champions against the adolescent Maple Leafs, a team who had not made the playoffs since 2004. ...

My 7th and 8th grade basketball teams that I help coach at the middle school where I teach out in the Southwest Suburbs of Chicago were playing in a season finale conference tournament, while at the same time Toronto and Los Angeles both played Thursday. ...
Was this just a trade made out of necessity or is there more to it? The Leafs traded for Peter Holland and Nick Staubitz today in exchange for Jesse Blacker, a 7th round pick in 2014 (originally from Anaheim, acquired in the Steckel trade) and either a 2nd or 3rd round 2014 pick depending on Holland’s performance. Let’s break this down: First off, Staubitz is a s...
