What Happened to Vegas in Game 7, Shouldn’t Stay in Vegas

As Toronto Maple Leafs fans began to work through their stages of grief following a Game 7 loss to the Boston Bruins, supporters of the Vegas Golden Knights found themselves on the verge of dispatching a feisty San Jose Sharks club.

He quickly dubbed the team “a bunch of jerks” and set off a debate about whether or not the Hurricanes’ actions were fair play.

Rolling the Dice on Rookie Player Memorabilia

I may not be an expert when it comes to reading the stock market, but what I’ve learned from afar is that it’s best to buy shares before an entity begins to skyrocket. Thus, if you’re well-researched (and a little bit lucky) your modest early investment could eventually lead to a substantial return. In the [...]

Could Brad Marchand be the Best Player in Hockey?

The debate over who is currently the NHL’s best player is one that can change as quickly as the weather in March.

As John Tavares prepared to return to his NHL stomping grounds of Long Island as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs, many had an inkling that a hero’s welcome wouldn’t be coming. There would be some early booing and perhaps a smattering of hyper-critical signage held by fans – nothing too unforeseen. Then, perhaps, [...]

Carolina Hurricanes Shouldn’t be Jerked Around for Celebrating Wins

The last time I checked, evolution is a thing. It occurs around us constantly in too many ways to list. Unfortunately, though, it appears as if some stout hockey traditionalists would appreciate leaving evolution outside of the arena. Recently, some people have gotten their noses out of joint regarding the elaborate post-victory celebrations in which [...]
