Canucks Seeing the Potential Demko Showed at Boston College

The Vancouver Canucks are back in the playoff race thanks mostly to the brilliant play of Thatcher Demko. He is firmly entrenched as the starting goaltender and does not look like he’s giving it up any time soon. He may have struggled out of the gate, but is now on an 8-1-0 run with a 1.74 goals-against average (GAA) and .950 save percentage (SV%) to go along with one shutout. He is by far the hottest goaltender in the NHL right now and is looking more and more like the man they called Bubbl...

Harry Nilsson's "One (is the loneliest number)"

I didn't know that Three Dog Night's 1969 version of "One (is the loneliest number)" was a cover until today. It was written and recorded by singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson in 1968. While I like the Three Dog Night version (and Al Kooper's, too) I think Nilsson's is better. — Read the rest

A Look At Matt Murray With The Ottawa Senators

from Travis Yost of TSN, As the Ottawa Senators continue to plod through a multi-year rebuild, one of the key focus areas for the organization will be in net. Only one team gave up more goals than Ottawa (243) last season, and that was with goaltenders  Craig Anderson ,  Anders Nilsson , and  Marcus Hogberg  playing reasonably well. Anderson, a veteran who spent 10-years in the nation’s capital, was not extended by the organization and remains an unsigned free agent. This part of ...

Ranking NHL Teams By Goaltenders

Now that the 2019-20 NHL season is over and the Stanley Cup playoffs are in full swing, it’s time to rank the teams by position once again. Starting with the goaltenders since that position seems the most solidified on paper across the league as of today. When it comes to ranking goaltenders, starters still carry the most weight despite the fact it’s becoming a two-goalie league, and positional depth is more important than ever before. With that in mind, in the first of a four-part seri...

Sexagenarian Firefighter Forced to Hang Up Hose

Written by Daniel Standing LL.B., Editor, First Reference Inc. In many cases, the choice of when to retire is based on a variety of factors, including lifestyle, priorities and other circumstances. Sometimes the decision to stop working is an easy one, while others prefer to continue working as long as possible. But what happens when an employee’s retirement is not a choice but is a requirement of his or her pension plan? Is it discriminatory? This issue came before the Human Rights Tribunal of...

A Look Back at Kent Nilsson’s Underrated Career

When you think of legendary Calgary Flames players, names like Jarome Iginla, Theoren Fleury, Joe Nieuwendyk often come to mind. Perhaps players like Mike Vernon, Lanny McDonald, and Al MacInnis, as well. However, one name that rarely seems to get thought of or mentioned is Swedish forward Kent Nilsson.

Ottawa Senators’ Goalie Options for 2020-21

Earlier, I wrote about the Ottawa Senators’ young goalies. While there is plenty of hope for the long term future with that young group, the short term is much more of a question mark. While Craig Anderson has yet to make an announcement about his future, his last few seasons were mediocre and at the age of 39 and without a contract, I’d lean towards him retiring. One goalie that will most definitely be involved is Marcus Hogberg It’s likely that he starts next season as the backup. As for who c...

Top 10 Worst Mike Milbury Moves

Mike Milbury has long been a flamboyant and interesting figure in the NHL. From his time as a player, when he jumped into the MSG stands and beat a fan with his own shoe, to his current role as an NBC Sports analyst, where his comments have often gotten him into hot water, Milbury always seems to find his way into the headlines.

Canucks Trade Partners for Thatcher Demko

The Vancouver Canucks will eventually have to make a decision on whether to re-sign starting goaltender Jacob Markstrom or let him walk into unrestricted free agency (UFA). That decision will have a huge impact on the future of rookie backup Thatcher Demko. If Markstrom is retained on a long-term deal, that means Demko is destined to be a backup for the foreseeable future. As a young goaltender hoping for a number one job one day, he may not like that scenario. Thatcher Demko, Vancouver Ca...

Revisiting Jim Benning’s Drafts – 2014

Since Jim Benning became general manager of the Vancouver Canucks in 2014, he has presided over six drafts and selected 43 players.

Hockey’s Scariest Goalie Mask and the Man Behind It

There have been many a memorable goalie mask to draw attention in the NHL. Some of them far more iconic than the netminders who donned them, while others were an extension of the goaltender’s persona. 2011 Hockey Hall of Fame inductee and Stanley Cup champion Eddie “The Eagle” Belfour comes to mind in particular, as the masks he wore in his 18 NHL seasons were typically emblazoned with a bald eagle along the sides. Plenty of other masks stand out too. Brian Hayward’s shark mask in San Jose. ...

Islanders: Garth Snow’s Most Memorable Trades

In light of the 2019-20 NHL Trade Deadline only being a few days away, I decided to look back on some of Garth Snow’s most memorable trades from when he was general manager of the New York Islanders.

Since there were so many trades made by Snow, I will only be showing the five most memorable. #5: Reinhart for a 2015 First and Second-Round Pick ...

Jets With 100-Point Seasons

Recording 100 points in a single season is an outstanding offensive achievement that speaks not just to pure talent and dominance, but also consistency and determination.

Sacred Blood – review

Director: Christopher Coppola Release date: 2015 Contains spoilers Christopher Coppola is no stranger to the vampire genre, directing the 1988 film Dracula’s Widow. This film suffers for lack of budget and some spotty performances but makes up for it in vision and a sense of hankering back to Italian horror of yore. I felt the narrative could be tightened up also, but I’ll cover that as we go along and so, after the opening credits, we see images of the ocean, hear a storm until the scene calms...
