Flames Giordano: Leadership on & off the Ice

This 2018-19 National Hockey League season has been full of surprises for the Calgary Flames. From railroading the competition all the way to the top of the Western Conference, ranking No. 2 overall in the entire NHL, to overseeing multiple breakout seasons from its array of emerging players, this Calgary hockey club has been navigating unfamiliar territory in more ways than one. Case in point is the career season of team captain Mark Giordano, who, like so many of his teammates, has been blazin...

Petry Gets Snubbed Twice by NHL All-Star Game

In what has been an especially successful Montreal Canadiens season up to now, the Habs are relatively rife with All-Star Game-caliber players. Despite being named the lone representative of the team at the actual event on the weekend of Jan. 26, goaltender Carey Price is not one of them, though. Defenseman Jeff Petry has gotten shafted as a result. Petry vs. Price It of course used to be that Price would be a near-default pick. Price’s past accolades allow the all-star goalie to get in on rep...

Notes Before The Puck Drops Tonight

from Arthur J. Regner of the Wings website, "I think first of all, it's good to be home. There was an energy level today that was excellent," Wings coach Jeff Blashill said after the morning skate at the Belfor Training Center. "(To) be home and have energy, (but) our focus is on one thing and that's tonight's hockey game. That's it. There's not one thing you can do about anything, I'm not worried or frustrated about anything six games ago, 10 games ago, 100 games ...

While Maple Leafs Offence Rolls, Babcock Looks for Defence

TORONTO — Like a master chef serving up a lengthy tasting menu, the Maple Leafs rolled out some tasty appetizers to start against the Florida Panthers. Six minutes in, Mitch Marner took a long John Tavares pass off the boards and — with one defenceman blowing a tire and Andreas Johnsson occupying the other — swooped in on net only to be stopped by a fine glove save by Roberto Luongo.

Luongo Dreams of Another Playoff Run

TORONTO — His 39-year-old right knee wrapped in gauze for support, Roberto Luongo insists it’s all still worth it. The aches and pains, the amount of preparation needed just to step on the ice, and the injuries that take a lot longer to heal don’t come close to rivalling the one desire burning inside the Florida Panthers’ veteran goalie. “I just want to be in the playoffs, man,” said Luongo, grey hair dotting his beard. “I just want to get a taste of that. That’s why I play.” In his 19th NHL sea...

Buyer Beware: NHL Player Contract Risk

For over three decades, my most important role as an Investment Advisor was to reduce and mitigate investment risk while building client wealth. I achieved this by using a risk management technique called diversification. The goal was to develop a portfolio of securities that would meet the client’s tolerance for risk while achieving the rates of return they expected, to meet their financial needs. NHL general managers have similar responsibilities. Their clients are the individual team owners w...

How Much Longer For Roberto Luongo?

from Michael Traikos of the National Post, Roberto Luongo is on his farewell tour. He just doesn’t know it yet. Right now, the Florida Panthers goalie said he plans on fulfilling all 12 years of a $64 million contract that won’t expire until 2022. By then, Luongo would be 43 years old. But his age isn’t the biggest challenge in keeping him on the ice. Rather, it’s the money. It’s easy to drag your beat-up body to the rink when you’re the eighth highest-paid goalie in the NHL, ...

Blues goal disallowed on season’s weirdest play

The St. Louis Blues are, in their own words, a fragile team at the moment and can not catch a break. In the first period of Tuesday’s game against the Florida Panthers, defender Robert Bortuzzo innocently dumped the puck into the offensive zone from just outside the blue line, where it bounced off of referee Tim Peel’s midsection and ended up in the back of the net behind Roberto Luongo. At 5:17 of the first period in the Panthers/Blues game, Robert Bortuzzo’s shot deflected off an official an...
