Happy Holidays to everyone, I hope yours are great! The Sharks dominated the Predators last night and have played great hockey in extending their road win streak. I wish they would do the same thing at home and this team would be number one in the league. Maybe having the team in a hotel in San Jose would actually work for them! Whatever is working, the Sharks have been...
Hey pens fans, Last night, the Pens took on the Sabres in an Ice Bowl preview and emerged with the win. The Pens were up one to nothing with the goal by Armstrong. At the end of the game Crosby worked for the puc and brought it into the zone to setup Malin for the empty-netter. Ty Conklin played a solid game to earn the shutout. Winter Classic I will be there to ...
[img]http://cdn.nhl.com/penguins/images/upload/2007/12/wc2008_wide.gif[/img] It ended with Sidney Crosby as the sixth shooter to fumble the puck toward the goalie through the bad ice, slush and snow that was the rink at Ralph Wilson Stadium. It was history, or so said the NHL, as the Buffalo Sabres hosted the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first outdoor game in the U.S. It ...
My vote is either Montreal, Detroit, or Toronto. It has been suggested in other media that Montreal would be a great tie-in to celebrate the organization's 100th anniversary. Great idea to highlight Original Six in any form. Another floater has been to tie the Winter Classic to the All-Star Game. I like that idea even better if the All-Star Game is held in a norther...
7:30 AM : Get up from an easy going night of not drinking too much. I get my four layers of clothes on, check to make sure I have everything I need and run out the door to our meeting place for our limo. 8:30 AM : Arrive at my waiting destination, we start to celebrate with a few glasses of Champaign and Orange Juice which is also commonly known as a Mimosa. After ...
The Winter Classic or Ice Bowl, as it was called here in Buffalo, will be one event I will remember forever. It was something anyone who has the chance to go see should not miss! The NHL really scored with the game in Buffalo. I had a great time and this is how it went all day. I met up with a swimming teammate of mine at around 8:30am in our favorite tailgating spot fo...

For a league that struggles to market to the mythical casual fans without upsetting the die-hard fans, the Winter Classic could not have been more perfect for the NHL. A cold, blustery day with light to moderate snow in Buffalo provided the perfect backdrop for Pittsburgh's entertaining 2-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres, but the game was about far more than the score....
[img]http://nycya.com/5/images/wcsnoglobe.jpg[/img] I can't get the thought of an Islanders Rangers Winter Classic at Yankee Stadium out of my head. I want it. Bad. Ya know what else? I think we deserve it. All of us. Islanders fans, Rangers fans, hockey fans, baseball fans, New Yorkers, Long Islanders, Earthlings, and my dog. We put up with a lot of garbage. On the...
While listening to HTM on XM radio this morning on my way to work, Ron Rimmer made mention that people were complaining about the Winter Classic. Didn't hear why but it made me think. If this is going to be an every year event, what can be done to spice it up. First thing I thought was make it an Original 6 matchup every year. We have Det v Chi this year so why not Rang...
True, the Blackhawks still have one game left, this afternoon against the Kings. Regardless of the outcome, this will have been the most successful "Circus Trip" in years. Here's your fun fact for the day: If the Hawks win this afternoon, they will have exceeded the points they picked up during the last two "Circus Trips" - combined! Here's how it's played out: 2005...

Why Wrigley?

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
January 1, 2009 will be a date in which a professional sport is overshadowed by the venue it is being played in. Detroit Red Wings at Chicago BlackHawks should be a game for the ages. Instead it will be a celebration of all things Wrigley instead of a celebration of the roots of the greatest game on Earth. The game could have been played at so many more worthy stadiums. So...
Most of the time, third uniforms are a failure - in all sports. Lot's of teams will go with a color combo - usually to black - to look tough, one supposes. Or, they go with colors that are non-traditional for the team. Or, they find some "designer" to "update" the look. Unfortunately, on the whole, one gets the impression that the creation of a third look is only d...

ell another week has already passed. I thought I would like to open this blog up by offering my congratulations to the Pens on becoming the Stanley Cup Champions. Simply put, Malkin was awesome in the victory for Pit, he deserved for MVP for the playoffs. This series was a classic, but I must admit that when the Wings took the game 5 zip, I for one, did not give the Pen...
Off the top I'd Like to say that I Love the Winter classic and I will watch no matter what teams are playing, but with that said the game should be directed towards the non-typical hockey fans and Markets. The NHL doesnt have the Luxury of having 15 to 20 National games a week, the have 15 to 20 national games a YEAR, so having this game in the National Spot light is hug...
San Jose Sharks fans learned last year exactly why you don't want to win the President's Trophy (unless you're the Red Wings). Since the trophy's inception in the 1980s, no team has won a Stanley Cup in the same season as earning the President's Trophy for the first time in franchise history. Good news for Sharks fans, only one team has failed to win the Cup in the same se...

The Winter Farce

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Dear NHL, Next time you have a super competitive game without penalties on National TV, tell the referees to keep their whistles away at both ends of the ice. It was really nice to watch the game and I cannot believe still that a penalty for tripping was called on Timonen for diving at the puck and knocking a player down in front of his own net. Then a call is made f...
The Winter Classic has come and gone once again and this time at Fenway Park was another spectacle to watch, there is nothing like watching professional players, playing outdoors in what can come across to us as a game of shinny. We can all relate to that growing up and going into our backyards or the local community rink with temperatures below zero, the frost coming out ...

Winter Classic Thoughts

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
After the disappointing last day failure against the flyers. As a Rangers fan I need to find some sort of hope for a better season. So I turned to two things, the draft lottery and a potential Winter Classic appearance. For a while it looked as if things might turn our way. We got a top 10-pick draft pick. The Capitols and Pittsburgh were knocked out early and the playoffs...
The Winter Classic has been played in the NHL on January 1st of each of the last three seasons. It's a showcase game, designed to spotlight the sport on New Year's Day. Whether its focus is on star players, historical rivalries, or both, the Classic has, thus far, been a huge success for the NHL. In its short history, the Classic has produced an exciting hockey event......

Killing It!

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Killing It The NHL has beaten the Crosby v Ovechkin “rivalry” to the end. Now they look to do the same with the Winter Classic. To me the Winter Classic was taking on a persona as the rare meeting of two teams in a unique enviorment. Something no other sport really does. As a fan I felt that if I have to wait a few years just to see my team in the classic that’s...
Once again the league is featuring the Penguins in the Winter Classic. If this doesn't show that Bettman's favorite team is the Pens then I don't know what does. I get the feeling he thinks Cindy is the only marketable player in the NHL because everything he does somehow seems to involve him or his team. I would rather see another Max Talbot "you can call me superst...
Well this should be interesting being this is my first blog on this site, but I am ready to be criticized. The Winter Classic is obviously a long way off from today's date, but I don't see why we can't talk about it now. Considering that my twitter feed is filled with Winter Classic updates (lawlzitscasey) I think the NHL has already given it a lot of thought by now. I k...

Winter Classic, Brad Boyes

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
I'm sorry but this year's Winter Classic is a joke. It's all about the marketing and nothing to do with the hockey this year, and I hate to see the NHL waste one of it's few opportunities to rope in casual hockey fans by overexposing the same U.S. media markets. What does the state of Pennsylvania have on Gary Bettman? I mean 4 Winter Classic appearances combined betwee...

Winter Classic...with Cheese

Are you syked for the Winter Classic? I'm not particularly. It's a distraction in a season that's already had its share. If the league wants to create a holiday spectacle...it shouldn't have any bearing on the standings. I'm just sort of "outdoor-gamed" out. Snow....rain...fog....bad ice...HBO.....fedoras.....vintage white uniforms.....the novelty was worn thin on me. ...

Back on Track

Is there any question that Claude Giroux is feeling better? With 1 goal and 3 assists in last night’s contest in Dallas, the young center’s play was as fiery as his hair. If you observed the injury to his head last week, you probably started seeing visions of another Pronger-like catastrophe. During the intermission report, Bill Clement gave some insight on knee to ...

Mid-life crisis?

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
After watching the Winter Classic I'm a little concerned with the Flyers inability to put 3 periods together and close out games. I love the 2-0 record against the pens but I'm a little concerned about the 0-3 record against the rags. I thought they looked great in the 2nd, aggressive forechecking, constant pressure, which resulted in 2 goals in the span of a minute or s...

It has yet not been confirmed but it will be within the next few days to the next week. But the Detroit Red Wings will be hosting the 2013 Winter Classic, and the Toronto Maple Leafs will be visiting. There will also be a HBO 24/7 Road To The Winter Classic special. There really hasn't been much to say other than what has been leaked but the Leafs GM Brain Burke tweeted sa...

Striped Punching Bags

Oh, to be a top-flight hockey referee. To keep pace with players 25 years your juniors; to feel the wind in your helmet/helmet-like hair as you fly down the ice. To have crowds cheer you…when you slip and fall. To bring TV viewers off their couches and to their feet…as they scream obscenities at your image on the screen. To live your life knowing that at any given ...
Yesterday reports from TSN’s Bob McKenzie surfaced regarding the 2016 NHL Winter Classic and Grandpa Bob says the league is in talks with the Boston Bruins for hosting the annual outdoor battle. If this turns out to be true, this is just another prime example as to how poorly the NHL handles their series of outdoor games and places their greed over dedication to some fa...
