Cap Strapped Trade Targets For the New Jersey Devils

There are quite a few NHL clubs heading for a salary cap crunch this summer, and New Jersey Devils general manager Ray Shero has used situations like this to his strength in the past. He has been known to flip draft picks and prospects to teams in cap trouble in exchange for NHL-ready talent such a Kyle Palmieri and Marcus Johansson. With the NHL projecting a salary cap of $83 million for next season, the Devils are sitting pretty with over $35.5 million in available cap space. This puts the...

Does Trading Nurse Make Sense for the Oilers?

Imagine you are the general manager of a professional hockey team. You have a 6-foot-4, 220-pound defenseman who is turning just 25 years old. He’s played the equivalent of just over three seasons in the NHL. Every season he plays, he improves his offensive output and minutes played. His most recent season also saw him pace his defensive teammates with 41 points. It’s the most points a defenseman has posted for this organization since the 2008-09 season. He stands up for his teammates, he h...

Helping Holland Find Forwards for Oilers

Ken Holland needs to find the Oilers some new forwards before fall. Scorers, grinders — you name it, he needs it.  Edmonton has a long list of needs — starting with another new head coach — but overhauling the forward group ranks right up there on Holland’s to-do list. Acquiring wingers that can put the puck in the net will be one of his top priorities this summer. There are only three roster locks up front for the Oilers — the go-to guys that everybody knows: captain Connor McDavid, Le...

Ranking Every Hart Trophy Winner Since 2005

As the NHL-equivalent to a Most Valuable Player award, the Hart Memorial Trophy is the league’s most coveted award. Often times it coincides with the league’s top goal-scorer or point producer, but sometimes a surprise winner emerges. With that, which Hart-winning season has been the most impressive in recent memory? 13. Corey Perry – Anaheim Ducks – 2010-11 The 2010-11 NHL campaign almost feels like an anomaly. Corey Perry won the Hart Trophy with 98 points, beating out the NHL scoring ...

40% of Americans support antitrust action against Facebook after a cofounder called for it to be broken up (FB)

40% of Americans want to see antitrust action taken against Facebook. That's according to a new Business Insider/INSIDER poll of US adults conducted by SurveyMonkey. Facebook cofounder Chris Hughes recently called for the Silicon Valley tech giant to be broken up, and the results may bolster these arguments. Facebook has pushed back against demands for anti-monopoly argument, calling for different regulation instead. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Facebook cofounder Chris...

Opinion analysis: Hyatt fulfills expectations in a surprising way

In an already familiar 5-4 lineup, the Supreme Court has overruled Nevada v. Hall, which for 40 years has stood for the proposition that states generally lack sovereign immunity in one another’s courts. The new decision vindicates a legal position long held by conservatives, but it appears to endorse a loose approach to finding structural principles in the Constitution. The ruling also adopts a less than exacting view of stare decisis — hardly surprising for Justice Clarence Thomas, who wrote th...

Tuesday round-up

Yesterday the Supreme Court issued decisions in three cases. In Apple v.

Amy Howe has this blog’s opinion analysis, which first appeared at Howe on the Court. Subscript Law has a graphic explainer for the opinion.

Clarence Thomas Just Showed How Supreme Court Would Overturn Roe v. Wade

Jason Reed/ReutersIn 1992, the Supreme Court looked poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark case protecting abortion rights. They didn’t, however, and the main reason was respect for precedent—specifically, the legal doctrine known as stare decisis, or “let the decision stand.” Would it do the same today, with over 250 laws meant to test the case pending in states across the country?An otherwise obscure case decided this week, Franchise Tax Board of California v. Hyatt, suggests that a majo...

"I understand that judges, including Justices of this Court, may decide cases wrongly. I also understand that later-appointed judges may come to believe..."

"... that earlier-appointed judges made just such an error. And I understand that, because opportunities to correct old errors are rare, judges may be tempted to seize every opportunity to overrule cases they believe to have been wrongly decided. But the law can retain the necessary stability only if this Court resists that temptation, overruling prior precedent only when the circumstances demand it. It is one thing to overrule a case when it 'def[ies] practical workability,' when 'related princ...

With Abortion Cases On Horizon, Breyer Warns Of SCOTUS Eagerness To Overturn Precedent

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer sounded the alarm about the court’s conservative majority’s eagerness to overturn decades-old precedent in a dissent to a 5-4 decision where the court reversed a 1979 ruling regarding state sovereignty. Breyer’s statement was widely interpreted to be a warning about Roe v. Wade, given that he teed up his warning with a reference to a 1992 abortion case that upheld the 1973 landmark decision enshrining the constitutional right to abortion. “Today’s decision...

Nico Hischier Stood Out on a Bad Devils’ Team

It isn’t all that uncommon for second-year players to suffer from the sophomore slump. On the surface, it may seem like that’s the case with New Jersey Devils’ center Nico Hischier, who finished 2018-19 with 47 points in 69 games played. That’s five fewer points than a season ago, but he also played in 13 fewer games. There are a number of reasons why it may seem like Hischier took a step back; the most notable being the absence of Taylor Hall, who only played in 33 games this season because...

Alexander: Do Angels realize what they’re losing in Tim Mead?

ANAHEIM — Imagine that you’ve been in a job, your dream job, for 40 years. You’ve ridden out changes of ownership and philosophy, and you’ve represented your organization with loyalty, dignity, credibility and efficiency, as well as providing a pretty exhaustive institutional memory. And then you get that job offer of a lifetime, the one position that could conceivably tear you away from what has been your professional home. Do you take it? At first, Tim Mead said no. He’d joined the then-Califo...

Stunning Warner Music Defeat vs Madonna 'Vogue' Co-Writer

A Manhattan federal appeals court has found that Warner Music Group is guilty of wrongfully withholding royalties from the co-writer behind Madonna’s hit song “Vogue.” Two years ago, Robert ‘Shep’ Pettibone filed a lawsuit against the label claiming that both WMG and publishing division Warner/Chappell “withheld and failed to pay” royalties owed to him from the 1990 hit, despite demands and a notice of breach. The money was seemingly being held back in order to recoup legal fees spent o...

Who is this alien? Why, it's the psychedelic frogfish.

"Who’s this alien?" is Mashable’s enduring series about the exceptionally peculiar critters that inhabit a relatively small, ocean-dominated world in the outer realms of the Milky Way galaxy, called Earth. Many of these lifeforms, you’ll find, are quite alien. Hiding in the nooks and crannies of dead piles of Indonesian coral is a pudgy fish, wholly covered in swirls of orange and white. Seen from the right perspective, the critter might be mistaken for a vibrantly colored brain.  But amid the ...

‘Little’ Review: A Well-Intentioned Reverse ‘Big’ That Wastes Its Talented Cast

Little plays like a movie created in a boardroom. It’s as if a group of executives who have been on the Internet twice brainstormed the idea for a movie: People love Big, they love Girls Trip, they love Issa Rae, and they love endless references to memes. But put that all together, and you’ve got an incoherent mess of a movie that is barely held together by brightly colored tape and a charismatic cast. Directed by Tina Gordon Chism and produced by the writer of Girls Trip, Little has all the el...

Devils’ Needs Heading Into Crucial Offseason

To say the New Jersey Devils’ season was a disappointment would be an understatement.

Devils’ Season: A Step in the Wrong Direction

The 2018-19 season has been a massive disappointment for the New Jersey Devils. This follows the 2017-18 season, which was one of the most exciting times in recent memory for any Devils fan. The only direction for the team to go was up, coming off a 2016-17 season in which they won 28 games. To start the 2017-18 season, the Devils came out of the gate hot at the beginning of the season, starting things off with a 9-2-0 record and a spot atop the Metro Division. From that point, the Devils pl...
