Society’s Income-Inequality Unrest and Law Society Access to Justice Failure

[See the full text of this article on the SSRN. This one is related to my two previous Slaw posts dated: July 25, 2019, and April 9, 2020] Law society bencher-based[i] management structure: (1) has caused and perpetuates the very destructive access to justice problem (the A2J problem) of unaffordable lawyers’ services for middle- and lower-income people; which has a cause-and-effect relationship with, (2) increasing the negative consequences of society’s equally destructive income-inequality pro...

Blue Jackets: Jarmo Kekalainen’s 3rd-Round Picks Ranked

Ever since Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen was named Scott Howson’s successor on Feb. 13, 2013, the franchise’s fortunes have dramatically changed and they have slowly earned respect around the NHL. Kekalainen’s focal point, among his many duties as GM, and what was missing from the early Blue Jackets’ history, was strong drafting. Related: Blue Jackets’ Top Prospect Foudy Ready for Prime Time The Blue Jackets GM’s resume of strong drafting speaks for itself. With...

Nashville Predators: 5 Potential First-Round Targets

The NHL Draft order is not set yet, but the Nashville Predators are more than likely to draft around the 18th selection. After a season filled with ups and downs, including a coaching change in early January, the team will be able to add a top-tier talent to their 23rd-ranked system, according to The Hockey Writers‘ Mid-Season Farm System Rankings. They have one of the best defensive cores in the league with Roman Josi, Ryan Ellis, and Mattias Ekholm, but struggled offensively once again this se...

College Hockey Report: Recapping the First Round of the ECAC and Atlantic Tournaments

The term ‘March Madness’ is synonymous with the sport of collegiate basketball. However, it can also move away from the hardwood and onto the ice.

Islanders Have Long Struggled With Prospect Development

The New York Islanders have plenty of handpicked talent through the NHL draft in their line-up today. Mathew Barzal, Brock Nelson, Ryan Pulock are a few stand-out names that have found success at the NHL level, and are a core of this Islanders group. However, dating back to 2011, there have been some major swings and misses in drafting and developing “high-end” prospects. And unfortunately, some of those players have moved on from Long Island, and have found success with other NHL organizatio...

Predators Prospects: Philip Tomasino Reaching New Heights in Oshawa

Trade deadline deals at any level of hockey are a complicated beast. Often times, contending teams are in the market for additional pieces that will help them get over the proverbial hump and win a championship. On the other end, you have struggling organizations looking to sell their valuable assets for pieces that will assist them in future seasons. Unfortunately, these trades don’t always work in the “buyers” favor. The transition to a new team plays more of a role and a player struggles to p...

Windsor Spitfires’ Weekly: Post Trade Deadline and NHL Radar

With the 2020 OHL Trade Deadline in the rearview mirror, the Windsor Spitfires can now re-focus on important business. Being near the top of the Western Conference standings after the trade deadline isn’t easy but it’s a welcomed challenge. Getting some good news never hurts, either. General manager Bill Bowler was quiet during Friday’s deadline. He made no moves, showing confidence in his roster. As the team got into the post-deadline schedule, though, they found they’re still the hunted an...

Whicker: Prospects Akil Thomas, Samuel Fagemo gives the Kings hope

LOS ANGELES — Akil Thomas turned 19 on Jan. 2 of last year, which made him a legal drinker in Canada. For the foreseeable future, he will never have to buy. Late in a 4-4 game with Russia, Thomas freed up the puck and drove between two defenders. Without braking, he showed a forehand shot and then pulled it away for a backhand goal as he barged into goaltender Amir Miftakhov. That won the World Juniors for Canada in Slovakia last week. Thomas landed in Toronto amid a nest of cameras and micropho...

At the end of every draft, teams believe that they’ve made the best decisions for their club over the long haul. The Windsor Spitfires are no different.

Minnesota Finishes Off Weekend Sweep of Niagara

MINNEAPOLIS – So far, it looks like a smoother road for the Minnesota Golden Gophers compared to last year when inconsistent play kept them out of the NCAA Tournament. Some tough non-conference losses were a big part of that, but after beating the Niagara Purple Eagles 4-2 on Saturday night at 3M Arena at Mariucci, the Gophers are off to a 3-1 start with all four games outside of Big Ten play. Minnesota had just three sweeps last season, and they didn’t have one at home until the final regu...

Minnesota Holds Off Niagara for 3-2 Overtime Win

Matt Christians/SBN College Hockey MINNEAPOLIS – It’s no secret the Minnesota Golden Gophers have a different identity to their team this year. On Friday night, they put 15 underclassmen in their starting lineup, and the inexperience showed at times. But the talent is still there, and thanks to the heroics of one of those underclassmen, Minnesota was able to dodge a huge upset. After surviving a late charge in regulation, sophomore forward Sammy Walker picked up a turnover in the defensiv...

20 Amazing Things to Do In Idaho For First Time Visitors!

We never knew that there were so many amazing things to do in Idaho until our recent visit. I was looking for a state to wow me on our one-year USA road trip.

In 2009, Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara was hanging out with his business manager Tim Blum in the Manhattan bar Niagrara. Nara pulled out a marker and drew some of his fantastic figures on the walls.
