Canucks’ 4 Best All-Time

It is entirely possible that we’ve already seen the final games of the 2019-20 NHL season, as the COVID-19 suspension looms into Week 3. The longer the halt, the less likely it is that the season will resume. With that in consideration, this season was a special season for the Vancouver Canucks as they celebrated their 50th anniversary. Funnily enough, they have actually only played 48 seasons, since their debut in the league was the 1970-71 season (making the 2020-21 season the official 50-y...

A Feel Good Story For Every NHL Team

from Emily Kaplan and Greg Wyshynski of ESPN, To cheer you up during this lonely time, we revisited a feel-good story for every team this season: Arizona Coyotes Alex Meruelo. The billionaire became the only NHL majority owner of Hispanic descent last July, and we quickly learned the Coyotes had a new economic reality. In 2017-18, they had the lowest cap number in the NHL; last season it was 23rd in the league; but this season, only the Toronto Maple Leafs had a higher cap figure ...

Coronavirus outbreak shutters Ice Station, leaving Santa Clarita skaters stunned

While everyone’s staying home, keeping a safe distance during the coronavirus pandemic, the cold reality of the Ice Station Valencia’s closure might not totally be sinking in yet. But whenever it becomes safe again to congregate, thousands of hockey players, figure skaters and speedskaters, as well as their curling and broom-ball-playing ice cousins, special-needs athletes and recreational skaters too, they’re all going to emerge and find themselves without a rink nearby. On March 25, Santa Clar...

Capitals’ Salary Cap: Decision Time in DC

As we wait for hockey to return, front offices, coaching staff, and fans alike have plenty of free time to look ahead and plan for the future. For the coaching staff, the job remains to prep for any possible end of season/playoff scenario that might arise. Front offices have more time to look forward to what comes next, however. With the possibility of an abbreviated offseason on the horizon, GMs around the league need to be as prepared as possible for what will no doubt be a unique NHL Entry Dr...

Blues’ Sunshine Boys: Derek Sanderson, Chuck Lefley and Claude Larose

Every now and then, I find myself sharing a story with my kids about the St. Louis Blues. In my bedroom, I have a pair of hockey gloves from Robby Fabbri that we purchased at a Blues equipment sale. One of my kids has a hockey puck signed by Vladimir Tarasenko. In the corner of our living room, I have an old hockey stick from Wayne Babych. We were talking about the Blues the other day when I mentioned one of my favorite lines from the Blues back in the day, the 1975-76 season to be exact. ...

Wild’s Kurvers Takes Pandemic Pause In Stride

“We’re pretty much locked down,” says Minnesota Wild assistant general manager Tom Kurvers. “We basically said, go home and ride this out until we give you more direction, and so I’m trying to abide by those same rules. But, you know, it pulls you out of your life habits and so, I’m going to take care of what I can take care of here while everything is just, you know, on pause. I guess pause is the NHL word, but maybe that’s the right word? We’re on pause.” Minnesota Wild assistant general...

What, exactly, is Canada? The question sometimes occurs to Americans, living as they do right next door. But it might surprise those Americans to learn that Canadians themselves ask the very same question, living as they do in a country that could be defined by any number of its elements — its vastness, its multiculturalism, The Kids in the Hall — but never seems defined by any one of them in particular.

Don’t Expect Changes To The Draft Lottery

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, The decision to postpone the NHL draft scheduled for June 26-27 at the Bell Centre in Montreal didn’t come as a surprise because the league either expects to be playing hockey at that point or be unable to have large crowds in a rink — because the American Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Health Canada haven’t given the green light to hold large gatherings. There has been idle chatter that if the league does decide to cancel the rest of the ...
