Bruins’ 2019 Trade Deadline Additions Proving to Be Worth the Risk

When the NHL Trade Deadline rolls around each year, the same questions consistently float around. Which teams are buyers? Who are the sellers? Which teams are in the hunt and will have to decide on their own internal rental options? The biggest question, though, comes down to whether or not a trade will actually turn a team from a competitor into a legitimate contender. This is a fair question as time and time again, teams have mortgaged their future for an addition with no guarantee they...

Bruins Need Pastrnak on the Second Line

Thanks in large part to injuries and perhaps somewhat out of curiosity, head coach Bruce Cassidy and the Boston Bruins are well rehearsed in the mixing and matching of line combinations, up front. While the team’s ability to adapt to these changes is commendable, one would hope to see a more permanent lineup by Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Since the additions of Charlie Coyle and Marcus Johansson prior to the trade deadline on Feb. 25, an unsolved debate has been waged within Bruins N...

Coach Guy Boucher Fired by Ottawa Senators

It was announced on Friday morning that the Ottawa Senators have released head coach Guy Boucher of his head coaching duties for the Ottawa Senators. The move comes after a 4-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night and mere days after the team traded its three key players at the trade deadline. Needless to say, this move comes during a time of uncertainty for the organization. Assistant coach Marc Crawford will take over as head coach in the interim and while the team looks for a new ben...

‘The Other Two’ Bosses on Justin Bieber as Inspiration for New Comedy Central Show

After Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider’s tenure at “Saturday Night Live,” where they became the show’s youngest co-head writers and wrote music videos like the instant hit “(Do It On My) Twin Bed,” the two headed to Comedy Central to do more “big dumb broad stuff and make fun of pop culture,” says Kelly.

Bruins Miss on Niederreiter Trade Due to Lack of Center Depth

The Boston Bruins missed the boat on a deal that could have landed them a scoring right winger to fill their top-six hole. It wasn’t necessarily an issue of bad work by general manager Don Sweeney, however, just an issue of timing and team necessity by the Minnesota Wild. Related: Hurricanes Trade Rask to Wild for Niederreiter The Wild and Carolina Hurricanes made a deal Thursday that saw Victor Rask traded to the Wild in exchange for Nino Niederreiter. On paper, this deal seems like a major win...

TV Review: ‘The Other Two’

Typically, TV shows trying to replicate viral fame is more cringe-inducing than truly funny. The internet’s rapidly shifting whims make guessing the next big thing near impossible, and trying to make already hyperbolic situations even more exaggerated for comedic effect tend to result in flat parodies that only highlight how tricky and unpredictable viral fame […]

Senators’ Prospect Batherson Gets His NHL Debut

With the Ottawa Senators in the first year of a rebuild, all eyes are on the youth in the organization. In Thursday’s game against the Detroit Red Wings, that will include forward Drake Batherson who will be making his NHL debut. As just a rookie with the AHL’s Belleville Senators, Batherson has taken the league by storm and earned this promotion to Ottawa. In Batherson’s first 14 games in the AHL, he has seven goals and 20 points. That’s not only leading Belleville in both stats, but he’s...

The Blame Game: Oilers Coaching, Management or the Players?

The Edmonton Oilers lost another game on Sunday. That makes four in a row. Like the excitement fans felt when the team found itself with an 8-4-1 record, the heartache is real because apparently, at 8-8-1, the sky is falling. Before you know it, fans will be writing off this season and suggesting Connor McDavid will grow tired of the ineptitude surrounding the coaches, management (even if that isn’t necessarily true and we may be exaggerating the fate of this season a bit). With the alleged end ...

Jermaine Dupri Celebrate 25 Years of So So Def

If you’re from Georgia, you know that a lot of great music coming from the peach state. If you follow hip hop, you probably associate Outkast as being the GOATs in the A. Later on, guys like Ludacris, T.I., Jeezy, Pastor Troy and Killer Mike took reins. After that, guys like Future, Gucci Mane, Waka Flacka Flame and 2 Chainz. The newer generation has the likes of Young Thug, Migos, Future, Lil Yachty, 21 Savage and Cyhi the Prynce. What many people don’t know is that Jermaine Dupri put Atlanta...

Ottawa Senators 2018-19 Season Preview

It’s hard to believe that only two seasons ago, the Ottawa Senators were just one goal away from the Stanley Cup Finals. Entering last season, hopes were high for the club after the deep playoff run. That hype was fueled when the team acquired Matt Duchene from the Colorado Avalanche, although it came at the cost of veteran Kyle Turris and both a first- and third-round pick in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. The team didn’t execute, though. Captain Erik Karlsson was recovering from an offseason ankle ...

Predicting PTOs: 70 Potential Tryouts

Besides Rick Nash, who is pondering retirement, it’s pretty slim pickings among the remaining free agents. A bunch of veterans past their prime and a fair amount of former prospects who haven’t panned out to date. Add them up and there are approximately 100 players still available who could compete for NHL ice-time this season, but the majority of them will be doing so on training-camp tryouts. Yes, PTOs — professional tryouts. Now that we’re into the back half of August, those announcements sho...

How Ryan Kesler may affect the Ducks’ free-agency plans

Injury updates are tightly guarded in the NHL, even in late June, but the Ducks might give a hint about the status of veteran center Ryan Kesler through their actions on the free-agent market. Kesler’s 2018-19 season could be in jeopardy because of persistent hip problems, according to one credible media report out of Canada. It’s still a bit premature to panic, more than two months before the start of training camp, but if the Ducks are concerned, it might show up in their transactions. The NHL...

People are wildly polarized on whether they trust Facebook

A new Survata survey seen by Business Insider shows that people are massively polarized about whether they trust Facebook or not. That's after months of scandal over Cambridge Analytica's use of Facebook data. The survey showed that Facebook ranked lower on trust than Google, YouTube, and eBay — but higher than Instagram. Survata CEO Chris Kelly said people had stronger feelings about Facebook than about Instagram, whether negative or positive. Facebook has been making a lot of moves to show...

Boston Bruins Offseason Outlook

Road to Arctic Ocean

There’s a new way to reach the northern tip of Canada and touch the legendary waters of the Arctic. A new gravel road to the northern tip of the Northwest Territories, opened in November 2017, connects the primarily Inuit colony of Tuktoyaktuk to the larger town of Inuvik 93 miles to the south. Before the opening of the ‘Road To Tuk,’ this village abutting the Beaufort Sea and the Arctic Ocean was only accessible by plane or via an ice road in the winter. About as wild and unspoiled as an Arct...
