Every Star Wars Easter Egg You May Have Missed In The Book Of Boba Fett Chapter 2

Episode 2 of "The Book of Boba Fett" is an interesting one.

The Book Of Boba Fett Episode 2 Pays Tribute To Dune, One Of Star Wars' Biggest Influences

After a slightly rocky start to the series, "The Book of Boba Fett" episode 2, "The Tribes of Tatooine," picks up a gaffi stick and beats the audience over the head with "Dune" references -- and what a beautiful beating it is.It's no secret that Frank Herbert's beloved science fiction novel "Dune" was a major influence for George Lucas when he first began building the world of "Star Wars."

Coyotes take control early, defeat Kings

In a sinewy race that has taken on the feel of a search to find the world’s tallest little person, the Kings shrunk again, losing 4-0 to the Arizona Coyotes at Staples Center Saturday. Although the Kings have a points percentage that would put them in seventh place and out of the playoff picture in the other three divisions, they have had a fighting chance to qualify for the postseason because most of the West has stumbled and bumbled of late. “We didn’t have it as a team. We didn’t have it phys...

Surging Kings must focus on process, not ever-changing standings

At a moment when every game has the potential to move a team in or out of the preliminary playoff picture, the Kings return home for three games, beginning with Wednesday night’s showdown with the Arizona Coyotes.

Up until a week ago, it seemed as if John Chayka’s place in the Arizona Coyotes organization as the club’s general manager was relatively secure. During his four years on the job, the 31-year-old had completely revamped Arizona’s roster, adding players like Nick Schmaltz, Phil Kessel, Carl Soderberg, Taylor Hall, Alex Goligoski, Niklas Hjalmarsson, Darcy Kuemper, Antti Raanta, and others via trade or free agency. After suffering through an injury-plagued season, Chayka’s Coyotes were primed t...

Panthers’ Mike Hoffman: Worth the Past & Future Costs

Before I write too much, I have to admit that I am a huge fan of Mike Hoffman. He can score at an elite level, posting 20-plus goals for six straight seasons. Need him to pass the puck? No problem. He has racked up 30-plus assists for five consecutive seasons as well. His superior scoring ability and consistency make him a valuable addition to any team. Now, with my personal bias revealed, I will objectively analyze whether or not the Florida Panthers’ acquisition of Hoffman was worth the cost. ...

Stacked with high-end talent and depth to make deep playoff runs, the team has constantly been in win-now mode throughout Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin’s primes. Part of the reason the Penguins have been competitive for so long is the aggressiveness displayed by Ray Shero and Jim Rutherford as the team’s general managers (GM) over the last decade. Neither GM has ever been shy about ...
