Want the Wild to rebuild and start over? It's harder -- and riskier -- than you might think

The Wild will have a week off for the All-Star break starting Thursday and will arrive at the unofficial midpoint (50 games played is not half of 82) in a familiar position. The Wild is very much in the mix for a playoff spot — a little better than a coin flip, depending on where you look at probabilities — but Minnesota clearly isn't one of the NHL's very best teams. Top 16? Possibly. Top five? No chance. This middle ground has defined much of the last seven seasons (counting this one) since th...

Goalie Announcements (Jan 22)

Night number two of three of Week Seventeen tonight and it's another small-ish schedule.  I think the aim will to try not to be in the Basement Dweller more than anything else this week.  There isn't enough games to get too excited about making that run to the Mover & Shaker, although one team has put up a good start... no one wants to be down in the basement this week. Three teams are opening [Author: Clayton Corley]

Schedule Takes A Toll On The Chicago Blackhawks

from Mark Lazerus of The Athletic, I casually asked Jonathan Toews if he ever thought about the differences in travel playing in the Eastern Conference, particularly the New York area, versus the Western Conference, particularly Chicago, the second-easternmost city in the West. “Yup,” he said sharply, as if he had been waiting for this question all his life. “A lot.” Toews then beat me to the follow-up. “And from what I hear,” he continued, “Phoenix is getting added to our div...

Alexander: In Rams’ case, the bandwagon effect isn’t bad at all

Usually we sneer, or at least look askance, at those “bandwagon” fans who become interested in a team just as it reaches the big stage. The normal inclination is to ask, “Well, where were you during the long, hard slog of the regular season?” But not here, and not now. If you are a new (or renewed) Rams fan, excited because of the first Super Bowl involving an L.A. team in 35 years (and the first involving an L.A. Rams team in 39 years) … well, welcome aboard. I’m guessing they won’t even ask, “...

Is Hockey Living Dr. King’s Dream?

On Monday, Jan 21, much of the United States will enjoy a holiday – Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Many will celebrate the legacy of the slain civil rights leader in parades. Some will attend services commemorating Dr. King and his work. Others will ponder “the dream” that still resonates from his famous speech given at the Lincoln Memorial on Aug. 28, 1963. Who Broke Hockey’s Color Barrier? Sports has been an arena in which there have been many strides made in seeing Dr. King’s speech come to l...

Week Sixteen Newsletter

Two really big games in Week Sixteen propelled Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane to his 2nd Player of the Week award of the season, as he was far and away this week's best player, finishing with 10 points in three games.  The playmaking forward sure enjoys the spotlight, as this is the 7th time he has taken the mention since the start of the 2010 season, but this is the only time he [Author: Clayton Corley]

The 8 Best Defensive Forwards in Hockey History

  To many, high scoring, firewagon hockey carries the highest degree of entertainment. While others, this author included, prefer the bite-your-nails-to-the-knuckle closeness of a hard-fought, tactically masterful, defensive battle. Though many may not realize it while clamoring for larger nets, the elimination of the offside whistle and marbles to replace hockey pucks, the sporting world turns to the tightly-contested Stanley Cup Playoffs for the most rugged marathon of organized on the world s...

Blackhawks’ Roundtable: Colliton, Kane and Tanking Concerns

It’s been a long and winding road for the Chicago Blackhawks this season. While not exactly for the faint of heart, one has to admit it’s been interesting and entertaining. The 2018-19 season is a transition one, for sure. The Hawks haven’t been doing a whole lot of winning, but there’s been much change, and some progression as well. And there are still a lot of hockey games left to analyze and dissect. With that in mind, today, our Blackhawks writers Meghan Dillon, Greg Boysen and Gail Kauchak ...

Chytil & Howden: The Rangers’ Rookie Duo

Glen Sather and Jeff Gorton told New York Rangers fans that, going forward, the focus of the organization was to add “young, competitive players that combine speed, skill and character” and “building the foundation for our next Stanley Cup contender.” A little less than a year since that message, and the internal makeup of the team consists of a handful of players 29 and above and another handful that are 23 and younger – an all-over-the-place mix. On one end there’s Henrik Lundqvist and C...

Revisiting Doug Armstrong’s Drafts – 2011

A few weeks ago, we began to review the St. Louis Blues’ drafts under general manager Doug Armstrong, starting in 2010. That was a good draft, as the Blues selected Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko in the first round, but was weaker in the later rounds. The 2011 Entry Draft was just the opposite. Having surrendered their first-round pick in the trade that sent Erik Johnson to the Colorado Avalanche, the Blues were forced to make due with a bevy of picks in rounds two through seven, but in h...

Former Montreal Canadiens defenceman Josh Gorges retires after 13 NHL seasons

KELOWNA, B.C. — Free agent defenceman Josh Gorges retired on Monday after 13 seasons in the National Hockey League. The 34-year-old native of Kelowna, B.C., announced his decision in his hometown, where he broke into major-junior hockey as an undrafted player with the Rockets. "This is where it all started for me ... Really I had nowhere to go and wasn't sure what was going to happen and they gave me an opportunity," said Gorges, who is now helping out the Western Hockey League team in a co...

Penguins Pulpit: DeSmith, Injuries & Potential Deadline Plans

It seems the only teams that can beat the Pittsburgh Penguins are Western Conference bottom-feeders. The Penguins own the best record in hockey since Dec. 19, with a 10-2-0 mark in 12 games, including an eight-game winning streak. Their only two losses occurred against the Chicago Blackhawks (Jan. 6) and Los Angeles Kings (Jan. 12) who are 28th and 29th in league standings, respectively. The good news for the Penguins is that they don’t play either team again this season, so it should be s...

Blackhawks Triple Play: On the Wrong Side of 4-3

That’s right, the Chicago Blackhawks lost three games this past week, all by the score of 4-3. If you want to look on the bright side, two contests went to overtime. They have gone beyond regulation 14 times this season, and currently lead the league with nine overtime losses. Well, at least they earned two points out of it this week. But that’s not really the point, is it? Actually, winning isn’t really the point either. Because like it or not, the rest of this season is about improving to make...
