Koekkoek for Rutta – What Did the Blackhawks Get?

After firing former head coach Joel Quenneville on Nov. 6, Chicago Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman has spent the past few weeks changing the look of his roster and trying to correct a couple of his most-recent offseason mistakes. Bowman Tries to Change Fate by Changing Roster The first big move Bowman made after firing Quenneville was trading Nick Schmaltz, who will be a restricted free agent this summer, to the Arizona Coyotes for Dylan Strome and Brendan Perlini. The trade has w...

Critical Context for the FBI Probe of Trump

So many things have happened over the last two-plus years that simply defy belief that it can be essential to review them, to see what light they shed on new developments when arranged in order. Last night the Times reported that in the immediate aftermath of James Comey’s firing the FBI launched a probe into “whether Mr. Trump was knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s influence.” It’s worth reviewing the precise chain of events. Trump fired Comey on Tuesday, M...

Edmonton Oilers and the 50 Shades of Extreme

If you’re an Edmonton Oilers fan, you probably feel and know well the swings that come with being an Edmonton Oilers fan. Either the “sky is falling” or the “team is on its way to finally contend for the Stanley Cup” but, not often, is there an in-between. These days, that feeling is even more present as the team is making “knee-jerk” trades, has lost six-of-seven games, suffering due to injuries and there are questions about management and whether or not the general manager can be trusted to ri...

Ducks’ 3 Resolutions for a Successful 2019

It’s that time of year again. The time when some of us resolve to buy a gym membership and only use it a few times. It’s the time when we pledge not to spend on what we can’t afford only to come home a week later with a new wardrobe. It’s resolution time. The same goes for the Anaheim Ducks. They continue to hover above the playoff line but could be more comfortable if they make, and stick to, these three resolutions. Ducks Need to Trim the Penalty Fat The Ducks continue to lack discipli...

Oilers Options With Klefbom Out?

During the Edmonton Oilers 6-4 win over the Colorado Avalanche, Oscar Klefbom ran face-first into the injury bug again. A point-blank slap shot from Avs forward Sven Andrighetto seems to have caused some damage to Klefbom’s left hand. Jason Gregor has stated it’s broken fingers, and Oilers head coach Ken Hitchcock said the Swedish defender would be out “weeks, not days.” Hearing Klefbom has broken fingers…doctor will determine how serious. Where fracture is will determine if he requires surgery...

Hitchcock & Oilers Rolling While Other New Coaches Struggle

When the struggling Edmonton Oilers dropped the axe on head coach Todd McLellan and replaced him with the briefly-retired Ken Hitchcock last month, part of Peter Chiarelli's reasoning for the move came from a belief his team's roster was good enough to make the playoffs. It's only been 11 games, but it appears the embattled general manager was onto something. Sitting five points below the cut line at 9-10-1 before the coaching change, the Oilers are an impressive 8-2-1 under Hitchcock — ti...

AHL Central News: No Shortage of Offense

Last week in the AHL’s Central Division there was plenty of action as eight teams continue their season-long battle for four playoff spots. Four games headed to overtime and 57 goals were scored from the division foes during this exciting week. Wild Plug Along and Remain in First Place The Iowa Wild (14-5-4-2) had just enough offense to remain on top of the Central Division. They averaged four goals per game in their three contests and earned three of a possible six points. The Wild spent the ...

Changing consumer behavior is the key to unlocking billion dollar businesses

In the summer of 2012, I had just learned of a new service where a driver would pick you up in their own car, not a taxi or licensed town car. You’d be able to recognize the car by the pink mustache strapped to the front. I quickly downloaded the new app called Lyft and, intrigued, started to share it with others around the Airbnb offices. Almost everyone gave me a same response: “I would never use it.” I asked why. “Well, I wouldn’t feel comfortable getting into someone else’s car.” I said, “Wa...

Samsung fakes test photo by using a stock DSLR image

Samsung’s Malaysian arm has some explaining to do. The company, in an effort to show off the Galaxy A8 Star’s amazing photo retouching abilities, used a cleverly-shot portrait, modified it, and then ostensibly passed it off as one taken by the A8. The trouble began when Serbian photographer Dunja Djudjic noticed someone had bought one of her photos from a service called EyeEm that supplies pictures to Getty Images, a renowned photo reseller. Djudjic, curious as to the buyer, did a quick reverse ...

Steady Staal Anchoring Rebuilding Rangers

Ask most New York Rangers fans what the first thing is that comes to mind when they hear the name Marc Staal, and the answer will almost always be, “His contract.” It’s understandable: Staal’s six-year, $34.2 million deal that carries an annual $5.7 million cap hit for two more seasons after this one is exorbitant (to put it mildly) for a stay-at-home defenseman who’s never recorded 30 points in a season, isn’t an exceptional skater and will celebrate his 32 birthday in January. Handed out...

Koch Industries unit invests $500 million in Getty Images: Reuters

U.S. photo agency Getty Images Inc said on Monday it received a $500 million investment from a unit of Koch Industries. Koch Equity Development, the investment arm of Koch Industries, will have no input into its content or editorial coverage, Getty Images said.

Can Oilers Afford To Let Chiarelli Fix Problems?

There’s a lot of talk about change in Edmonton. The Oilers aren’t looking like a team that has much confidence, their scoring isn’t consistent, the wins are coming less often than the losses and everyone seems to be asking the question, ‘is the coach about to be fired?’ Perhaps an even more pressing a question would be, if additional changes are required, can the Edmonton Oilers afford to let the man responsible for making those changes do his job? Peter Chiarelli Got the Oilers Here I w...

How issues of microtransit, congestion and parking are closing in on cities

Earlier this week in a new experimental newsletter I’ve been helping Danny Crichton on, we briefly discussed transit pundit Jarrett Walker’s article in The Atlantic arguing against the view that ridesharing and microtransit will be the future of mass transit. Instead, his thesis is that a properly operated and well-resourced bus system is much more efficient from a coverage, cost, space, and equality perspective. Consider this an ongoing discussion about Urban Tech, its intersection w...

Matthews Is a Looming Pain in the Cap for Dubas

Superstar Auston Matthews is leading the Toronto Maple Leafs into a new era of promise, but he’s also a looming salary cap complication for general manager Kyle Dubas. The first overall pick at the 2016 NHL Entry Draft is playing in the final year of his entry-level contract and his next deal will command a king’s—or an Oiler’s—ransom. With every goal, Leafs center Auston Matthews continues to prove his value. (Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports) The bonafide superstar has established himself a...
