Don’t Feel Sorry For The Wings

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Sorry, no tears are being shed here over the plight of the Red Wings, whose historically bad season got them no more than the fourth-overall pick of the draft as a consequence of the way the pingpong balls bounced in Friday’s lottery drawing. Do you think the Detroit organization, always arrogant in the good times, agonized when the 2016-17 Avalanche, nearly as bad as this year’s Wings, also slid to fourth out of the lottery while the Devils, wh...

Long Island University Adds Goalies to Roster

Long Island University and head coach Brett Riley have been busy filling out their roster as they race to get ready for their inaugural season this fall. But noticeably absent from their first wave of commits was arguably the team’s important position: goalie. The Sharks appear to have found their goalies, however. It is being reported that LIU will pick up a pair of transfers from Hockey East in Vinnie Purpura and Maine’s Stephen Mundinger. Mundinger is a native of Long Island. He is a hug...

Long Island University Filling Out Inaugural Roster

The NCAA is still in a Covid-19-induced recruiting dead period, meaning coaches are unable to conduct in-home or on-campus visits, nor do any scouting—not that there are any major events to scout as it is. But they are still permitted to talk to potential recruits, and since Long Island University named Brett Riley the school’s first head coach two weeks ago, he has been hitting the virtual meetings hard trying to put together a roster for this upcoming season. So far, the Sharks have garne...

Canucks’ 2004 Draft: One of the Best in Team History

In 2004, the Vancouver Canucks had one of the best drafts in team history. It was Dave Nonis’ first draft as an NHL general manager (GM) and he did not disappoint.

Top 10 NHL Jerseys Discussion Nourishes ‘Social Closeness-ing’

Social distancing, huh? That’s a good one… and nothing new. As a young boy and teenager, our family lost our dad and my sister. Then, in the blink of an eye, the rest of my brothers and sisters were out of the house, doing grown-up things. I also said goodbye to friends who moved away. But on the fortunate side, I developed life-long friends who I consider brothers and sisters to this day.

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News, Of most importance Tuesday for the Wings, in terms of NHL news, were the details of the draft lottery to be held June 26. And that also was mildly disappointing for the Wings. There was rampant speculation earlier in the month about instituting a different lottery format, which for the Wings, would have given them an over 50% chance of landing the No. 1 overall pick — and at worst getting the No. 2 overall selection. But that plan was scrap...

Mike Estrada sat on his surfboard at Lower Trestles on Tuesday, May 19, when he saw the dark gray fin, not the dolphin kind, sticking out of the ocean’s surface, slowly passing not far from where he and others waited for waves. The following day, advisory signs were posted near the San Clemente Pier warning beachgoers a shark had been spotted.
