San Jose Sharks Off Season Good, Bad and Ugly

In preparation for upcoming San Jose Sharks 25th season and your usual post game articles it was suggested that I tried doing a “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” for the off season. I’m not going to lie it was actually kind of difficult because overall I don’t have very many gripes about the off season so some if some of the negatives feel like a reach they probably are....

NHL Free Agency Forward Focus: Who Should Colorado Pursue?

  The NHL’s off-season moves at a breakneck pace with the Stanley Cup being awarded one week, the NHL Draft happening the next, and then free agency setting teams up for next season the week after that.

Valiant third period effort not enough for the Washington Capitals

Game 6 between the Washington Capitals and New York Rangers was, in my opinion, the best game of the series so far. Throughout the entire game there was a sense of a must-win scenario. Of course, the Rangers needed to win game 6 to stay in the playoffs, but there was also pressure on the Caps to eliminate the Rangers and prevent a game 7. Both teams put forth a tremendous effort...

An introduction to The Color of Hockey

William Douglas doesn’t dwell on negatives. Perhaps he picked up the trait covering Congress, his current occupation with McClatchy Newspapers – and it’s certainly an occupation. Maybe it stems from teenage years spent in rinks across the Mid-Atlantic, where he was one of two black players in a league that stretched from Maryland to New […] The post The NHL In 2014: An Introduction...

Former Predator Ward represents tricky lesson in NHL economics

When the Washington Capitals awarded Joel Ward a four-year, $12-million contract in 2011, it seemed like an outrageous sum at the time. Ward was coming off a regular season in which he scored 10 goals in 80 games.
