Predators’ Laviolette Wins 600th Game

On Jan. 21, Nashville Predators head coach Peter Laviolette won his 600th regular-season game in the National Hockey League. It was also his 211th victory in his 379th game as head coach of the Predators. In a league that has been, and remains, filled with quality head coaches, one might think that winning 600 regular season games is common. That thought would be incorrect. With his 600th win, Peter Laviolette joined an exclusive coaching club. (AP Photo/David Zalubowski) Reaching the 600-win ...

Poll: 69% of office workers in Los Angeles, Orange counties would leave town for a new job

When office workers were asked if they’d move for a job, 69 percent of those surveyed in Los Angeles and Orange counties said, “Yes!” Now before you think you see another hint of a local mass exodus, please note quitting jobs is the workplace’s hottest trend. And people may tell a pollster they want to relocate, but Census trends show Californians don’t move much these days. Also, note that career itchiness is a national trend. This survey by the Robert Half temp agency found in the 28 cities po...

Timeline of Paul Holmgren, Bob Clarke and the Flyers

The pro sports world is inherently exclusive and insular, but there may not be many pro sports franchises out there as insular as the Philadelphia Flyers. The team is now in its 52nd year. The two men who currently hold the reins behind its hockey operations have been part of its history, whether as players, coaches or executives, for all but three of those years. On the team’s front office page, the pair appear as the first two names listed below Comcast Spectacor CEO and Chairman Dave Scott: P...

The Time for Canadiens to Ride Price Isn’t This Season

It‘s easy to second-guess the Montreal Canadiens whenever head coach Claude Julien plays Antti Niemi over Carey Price, like he did against the Philadelphia Flyers. It shouldn’t be about winning individual games at this point, though. It’s more about the long game. Niemi Loses to Flyers Obviously, considering the theoretical goal for the Canadiens is to compete for a playoff spot, results like their 5-2 loss to the non-playoff-bound Flyers don’t really help. There were a few other factors at pl...

NHL TV Blackouts & Why They Happen?

Picture a scenario. Your local NHL team is playing a nationally-televised game. It’s on NBCSN, which you access through an app because you don’t have cable or satellite. You’re excited to watch it, but when you turn it on, you’re denied because of a tv blackout based on your location. Another scenario. You live in Philadelphia and have purchased NHL.TV (formerly NHL Gamecenter Live) to watch your favorite team, the Tampa Bay Lightning, play. On this night, the Lightning are in town to take on th...

Heisler: With Kyrie Irving, Jimmy Butler looking wiggy, list of stars who might be available keeps growing

Now, the free agent summer to end all free agent summers. Of course, this is a big deal around here, once the glamor capital of the NBA, better known lately as its leader in salary cap space. A year ago the Lakers had two max-contract slots, cashed one in on LeBron James and saved the second for 2019. This year, it’s the Clippers who can create two max slots. Happily for the local teams, this isn’t a thin class like last summer’s, which was basically LeBron and Paul George. This one is loaded wi...

Bruins Need Pivotal Piece to Become Cup Contenders

The Boston Bruins’ 2018-19 season has been a rollercoaster, and we haven’t even made it to the All-Star break. It started with a 7-0 loss to the Washington Capitals on opening night that left those in Boston dumbfounded. They followed this up with four wins, however, immediately proving the naysayers wrong. There was one issue: the Bruins were relying heavily upon their top-line trio of David Pastrnak, Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand. This was quickly targeted by the opposition, and the...
