Bruins Need to Go All-In at Trade Deadline

It’s that time of year. With the NHL trade deadline days away, teams are ready to go shopping. Buyers want to make their team better for what they hope is a long run in the Stanley Cup playoffs and sellers are looking to add pieces for the future while parting ways with players who have value. Last season at the deadline, Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney picked up Charlie Coyle from the Minnesota Wild and Marcus Johansson from the New Jersey Devils. Both players helped anchor the Bru...

'Ghost ship' washes ashore in Ireland after Storm Dennis

A "ghost ship" drifting without a crew for more than a year washed ashore on Ireland's south coast in high seas caused by Storm Dennis, the Republic's coast guard said. The abandoned 77-metre (250-feet) cargo ship MV Alta ran aground on rocks outside the village of Ballycotton near Cork, Ireland's second city, bringing an end to her months-long voyage. The Alta's odyssey began in September 2018 when she became disabled in the mid-Atlantic en route from Greece to Haiti.

Panthers Fall Into Post All-Star Break Slump

Things are not looking good for the Florida Panthers with only 24 games remaining in the 2019-20 regular season. The club owns a record of 4-5-1 in their last 10 games and currently sits on the outside of the Eastern Conference playoff picture looking, with 66 points. They’re five points out of the last wild card spot, which is occupied by the Philadelphia Flyers. This team is clearly past the rebuilding years and is heading into the deadline as buyers instead of sellers. This team is built f...

Maple Leafs News & Rumors: Campbell, Worst Trade, Nylander & Marchment

Well, it didn’t take long before Jack Campbell endeared himself to other Toronto Maple Leafs players. All game long against the Ottawa Senators on Feb. 15, when play stopped in front of his net, he was tapping away on his teammates – thanking them for this play or that as they helped him keep shots out of the net. Obviously, it worked because his Maple Leafs beat a surprisingly resistant and determined Senators’ team that pressed all night long. The final score was 4-2 Toronto. Related: Maple...

How a few scrappy homeowners may stand between Elon Musk and his dream of a Mars spaceport in South Texas

About a dozen homeowners in South Texas' Boca Chica Village neighborhood have not sold their properties to SpaceX to make way for a planned Starship spaceport. SpaceX and a real-estate firm it hired have told residents they could be removed — and for far less money — through an eminent-domain process started by Cameron County. However, one homeowner told Business Insider that she and her husband would not sell to SpaceX, and they apparently aren't alone. Meanwhile, the Institute for Justice, a...

The Constitution still matters, despite all the attacks on it

SACRAMENTO – America’s current political discourse is far from uplifting these days, with our increasingly tribal politics leading to a series of seemingly endless high-decibel battles. The funniest description I’ve read comes from a Canadian meme, which compared the situation to listening to a neighbor’s car alarm blaring all night long. The most troubling aspect of America’s polarized society isn’t the constant anger and upset that is so prevalent that it’s making even our friendly northern ne...

New cross-country system to take heavily worn winter storm path

Meteorologists are closely monitoring yet another cross-country snowstorm on the way. Even though it will take a jog southward over the Rockies, the storm will then trek northward and aim at the Upper Midwest, just as many storms have done so far this winter.The weather pattern feels like the movie "Groundhog Day" as Mother Nature seems to be exercising from muscle memory, according to forecasters, and that will start, in this case, with the storm rolling into the Pacific Northwest coastline."Th...
