One for the Ages: Steve Thomas’ 2002-03 NHL Season

Throughout his entire 20-year NHL career, winger Steve Thomas had an uncanny ability to be in the right place at the right time. His 78 career game-winning goals are more than Mario Lemieux, Marcel Dionne, Alex Delvecchio, Jari Kurri, Bryan Trottier, Jean Ratelle, Martin St. Louis, Darryl Sittler, or any number of other Hall of Famers, Stanley Cup-winners and All-Stars ever scored. The somewhat diminutive winger nicknamed “Stumpy” was a perennial “Johnny-on-the-spot” for his entire NHL career. T...

Kings’ Sean Walker hopeful face can avoid more pucks

EL SEGUNDO — Sean Walker on Wednesday morning sat at his locker looking like he had been in a prize fight. He sported a large cut over upper his lip with bruising and swelling under his right eye. Sure, hockey players do get in brawls, but the Kings’ rookie defenseman had not been in one. Rather, he took a shot puck to the face during the third period of the Vancouver Canucks’ 4-3 shootout victory over the Kings on Thursday at Staples Center. Bleeding as he left the game, Walker took between 20 ...

Amazon Scraps HQ2 Plan in New York: What it Means for Employers Nationwide

Amazon is coming for your talent. Amazon delivered some shocking news last week when the company announced it was canceling its plans to build an expansive corporate campus in Long Island City, New York. Employers in and adjacent to their proposed new co-headquarters city are probably relieved to hear this news, as it’s likely many would have lost talent to Amazon. While they may be celebrating today, the rest of us should not be. Here’s why. In a statement released by Amazon, the company notes...

Could Bruins Be Haunted by McQuaid Trade?

When the Boston Bruins traded Adam McQuaid to the New York Rangers in September prior to the 2018-19 season, they appeared to make out like bandits. Not only did the Bruins get a fourth-round pick in 2019 as well as a conditional seventh-round pick and a depth defender in Steven Kampfer, but they also reduced their log-jam on defense and cleared up nearly $3 million in cap space in the process.

No Matter How Small; Imagining a New Human Dignity Movement

Daniel Darling is a friend of mine who invited me to speak last year at a gathering in Washington, D.C. entitled, Evangelicals for Life. The purpose of this gathering is to encourage Christians to care about the most vulnerable among us, from the unborn to the undocumented. That’s why I was eager to endorse Daniel’s new book, The Dignity Revolution, where he imagines what a movement that spoke up for all kinds of vulnerable people would look like. It’s a grace to welcome Daniel to the farm’s ...

Players Brace for Moves as NHL Trade Deadline Nears

Thomas Vanek remembers waking up in Edmonton, Alberta, and turning on the TV in his hotel room to find out where he was heading. It was March 5, 2014, the NHL’s trade deadline day, and Vanek’s bags were packed. He knew he had played his final game a few days earlier for the New York Islanders after rejecting the team’s bid to sign the pending free agent to a contract extension. It wasn’t until the deadline passed when Vanek’s phone started ringing. It wasn’t his agent, the Islanders nor some oth...

When I Pray for You: a Parent’s Heartbeat

My second child was a little girl, and I joke that she was strong-willed and stubborn from her earliest days in my womb. I was incredibly sick during that pregnancy, throwing up sometimes six times a day. I was hospitalized twice for fluids during my first trimester. It was as awful as it sounds, and some days my only prayer was, Please let me survive this.  At thirty-two weeks, we learned she was breech. We prayed she would turn, but with every check-up, she remained butt down. As the weeks wen...

Kings hopeful they can get well again on the road

Records show the Kings have roughly the same record at home as on the road. They are 12-15-2 at Staples Center, 11-15-4 away from it. Each mark is good for 26 points. But after going 3-2-1 on their most recent road trip, the Kings just finished a homestand in which they went 0-2-1. After the Kings dropped a 3-2 decision to the Stanley Cup-champion Washington Capitals on Monday night at Staples Center, rookie forward Austin Wagner talked about the lack of success in their friendly confines.

What Does a “Forever Home” Mean To You?

  Last weekend we went to look at a house. It unexpected and premature. We’re not at all ready to move (especially with an adoption in progress) but the house seemed so incredible that we felt we had to look “just in case”. It had all the things we thought we really wanted in a “forever home”. So for, like, 24 hours my brain opened up to the possibility of moving way sooner than we had planned. It turned out to be nothing. I’m one of those people who can tell within second of walking into a home...
