Sean Avery suggests Auston Matthews fight at center ice in bizarre, profane rant

The 10-year NHL veteran unloaded a profane rant on Instagram outlining his thoughts on Jake DeBrusk's hit on Patrick Marleau and Nazem Kadri's retaliation. Here's Avery's take slide-for-slide on his Instagram story: Slide 1: “That f—ing hit that Jake DeBrusk threw on Patrick Marleau in the Leafs-Bruins game was a dirty f—king hit. That's not a particularly hot take.

Jets’ 2018 Draft Pick Update

The amount of attention draft picks get varies wildly. They’re heavily highlighted in the weeks leading up to their draft, staunchly scrutinized as they are selected and much-ballyhooed as they strut their stuff at prospect showcases and development camps. However, by the time October comes and the puck drops on any given regular season, the majority of fans forget all about the players their team selected just a few months prior (unless that pick is NHL-ready like Auston Matthews or Patrik Lain...

5 Tips to Be Your Beer League Best

I’ve been waiting for the phone to ring for 10 years. It still hasn’t, but I’ll be ready when it does. And although, I was never a Boy Scout, I still abide by their “be prepared” motto, especially when it comes to signing the NHL contract that I definitely deserve. In fact, I probably couldn’t be any more prepared, seeing how I’ve played out the following scenario in my head at least a million times over the past decade… My future ex-wife is practicing pilates in something exceedingly skimpy,...

Of disparate note this evening: 1. Hockeybuzz's Bob Duff penned an article discussing the opportunity being given to the Athanasiou-Larkin-Mantha line... “It’s critical that we continue progress with guys besides Z,” Blashill said. “Z’s still one of the better players in the league, in my opinion … but we need other guys to be able to do that as well.

Stars’ Biggest Free Agent Flops

The Dallas Stars were busy this summer signing arguably the two best unrestricted free agent forwards on the market to multi-year contracts. First, they signed mountainous Martin Hanzal to a three-year deal worth $14.25 million. The 30-year-old Czech native is 6 foot 6 and 230 pounds. Hanzal excels at faceoffs and brings needed help to the Stars penalty killing department. Next, the Stars signed Alexander Radulov to a five-year contract worth $31.25 million. The 31-year-old Russian winger is six...

Oddest NHL Free Agent Signings in the Past 20 Years

It’s fairly easy to assume that every NHL franchise has at least one or two free agent signings they can look back on and say to themselves, “what were we thinking?” Signing players is a part of the business of hockey and not every general manager gets it right every time. The trick is not to land yourself atop the worst in NHL history or make the same colossal mistakes more than once. This is not a lesson learned effectively by many teams. In the past 20 years, there have been numerous occasion...

Why Hilary Rhoda will never give Sean Avery fashion advice

For supermodel Hilary Rhoda, the best gifts are the personal ones. “I did a collage picture album for my husband [Sean Avery] one year, and he loved that,” says Rhoda, who was on hand at the launch of Kohl’s k/lab collection last month. Not that the occasional luxe buy from her Vogue-approved hubby goes unappreciated....

Before Matthews There Was Stepan

Auston Matthews  kick-started his professional career, not to mention the 2016-17 National Hockey League season, in a simply amazing way Wednesday night by becoming the first player in modern history to score four goals in his NHL debut, albeit in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Ottawa Senators. He also was just the fifth rookie to record a hat trick in his initial NHL contest since the 1943-44 season. The last player to record a three-goal game in his NHL debut? New York Rangers center Derek Step...

War on Ice: The Chilling Truth of Enforcers, CTE and Fighting in the NHL

Before a big game, players may be sleeping, focusing on trying to score the game-winning goal that lifts their team ahead. Some are simply resting, trying to relax and focus. John Scott, however, is on YouTube and, focused on his obligation for the game to come: as an enforcer, his job is to chirp, drop the gloves when necessary and win the fights he picks. “I’ll be honest. You can never shut it off. It’s a 24/7 job. When you know a fight is coming up, you can never shut off you...

Does Maxim Lapierre Have a Chance of Making the Rangers?

Maxim Lapierre was recently invited by the New York Rangers to attend the team’s training camp on a PTO, which is a move that surprised many fans considering the fact that the Rangers already have several qualified players competing for just a few spots. Lapierre has made his living under the skin of his opponents over the course of his career, and he does have qualities that could help the Rangers, but the fact is that he is a true long shot to start the season on Broadway. To have success, he ...

Max Jones Features Offense, Work Ethic

Position of need is a term thrown around loosely when talking about a professional draft and where a given player might fit. In the Red Wings’ case, they have many. It’s clear the Wings have lacked a top-four defenseman since Lidstrom retired. As badly as Detroit needs a presence on the back end, they’re also in dire need of something else: scoring. A Quick Review The Wings offense mustered only 209 goals for in the 2015-16 season; to put things in perspective, the league’s 23rd ranked offense...

Friedman with a little more about Datsyuk and a note on the youth movement

From Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman's "30 Thoughts": 17. Expect a large ovation for Pavel Datsyuk on Wednesday, as the Red Wings play their final home game of the regular season, a titanic matchup against Philadelphia. Datsyuk is considering the possibility of a return to Russia for next season, one year earlier than expected. Nothing would be final until a post-season meeting, and it would not be a surprise if Detroit offers him an extra year’s contract as an incentive to stay. If...

The New York Rangers’ Best Rivalries

This past Valentines Day, we saw New York Rangers’ defenseman Dylan McIlrath drop the gloves with Wayne Simmonds of the Philadelphia Flyers. The theme of the day was retribution for a sucker-punch that Simmonds laid on Rangers’ captain Ryan McDonagh just a few games prior. The rest of the match following the fight had a certain edge to it that’s lost when less familiar teams meet. The fun of the game got me thinking of other classic Ranger games against heated rivals and led me to compose a list...
