Canucks’ Free Agents: Who Stays & Who Goes

The Vancouver Canucks will have a lot of decisions to make this offseason when they start looking at their roster for 2020-21. In total, they have six unrestricted free agents (UFAs) and five restricted free agents (RFAs) to deal with. To make matters worse, many of them are high-profile players that will command a significant salary increase from what they were making in 2019-20. Suffice it to say, general manager Jim Benning will be busy come July 1 (or whenever the NHL decides the offseason w...

Today in Hockey History: March 29

This date in hockey history saw the Great One break even more records, including one of his own. Also, one of the league’s “Original 6” franchises had plenty of success on March 29. There was also a good amount of goaltender history made on this date, including some by an accountant. More Records Shattered by 99 March 29 was one of many dates where Wayne Gretzky had big moments throughout his legendary career. In 1981, he picked up three assists the Edmonton Oilers’ 5-2 win at the Pitts...

How UCLA basketball looks for the 2020 season

In his first year with UCLA men’s basketball, coach Mick Cronin shattered expectations and brought a revival to the program. While the Bruins did not get the chance to perform under the bright lights and high pressures of the postseason, with the Pac-12 and NCAA Tournaments canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cronin has already made strides to continue his success into the 2020-2021 season. Scholarships opening up after 2019-20 With the departures of redshirt seniors Prince Ali and Alex Ole...

7 Highly Questionable HHoF Selections

Written by Bill Schoeninger in 2014. (THW Archives) Founded in 1943, the Hockey Hall of Fame has inducted 381 players, coaches, executives and officials for their tremendous contributions to the sport. While they all have left their mark on the game in various ways, some have accomplished more than others. At times, the Hall of Fame committee has inducted some players that have sparked a lot of debate. Many believe they belong in the “Hall of Very Good” and not the Hall of Fame. ...

Love in the time of coronavirus: Long Beach couple weds in a changed world

There were no ivory table cloths. No dusty rose napkins. No gold table numbers. But Halley Taylor had a veil, a floral beaded headband and a white, floor-length gown with layers of lace and sequins. Taylor married her fiancé, Jacob Frank, in a tiny ceremony in a private backyard on the Palos Verdes Peninsula early Saturday evening, March 28, under wisps of clouds dotting the springtime sky, the Pacific Ocean lapping in the distance. Halley Taylor and Jacob Frank got married in a small ceremony...

Rangers’ 5 Best Defensemen All-Time

Sergei Zubov Sergei Zubov did some impressive things with the Rangers. However, his Rangers tenure was cut short by a trade that sent him to the Pittsburgh Penguins after only threes seasons.

Blackhawks Lost Their Wings With Tommy Wingels

There are many trades that the Chicago Blackhawks have made. Some have made big noise around the league just by the magnitude of it. For every Artemi Panarin and Niklas Hjalmarsson-esque trade, there are some that are more covert. They go out the ear as fast as they come in but can be just as significant. In my opinion, a trade that falls into that category is center Tommy Wingels. I believe it had more cons than pros for the Blackhawks, which makes it more notable. Wingels Prior to the Tra...

Calgary Flames: Best and Worst Drafts in Team History

Since the Atlanta Flames relocated to Calgary in 1980, the team has taken part in 30 NHL Entry Drafts. In the 1980s, they drafted numerous top-tier NHL stars – including Al MacInnis, Mike Vernon, Gary Roberts, Brett Hull, Theoren Fleury, and Joe Nieuwendyk. Some of these players played key roles in the team’s 1989 Stanley Cup win. However, as the Flames moved into the 1990s and 2000s, draft day consistently produced unexceptional results. Fortunately, the team was able to bring in fr...

How their San Fernando restaurant became a mini-market to help the community

The coronavirus outbreak complicating shopping for many of their customers, Chris and Magaly Colelli, owners of Magaly’s Tamales in San Fernando, listened to many complain that they were having a hard time finding rice and beans, staple items for the predominantly Latino populated city. “Beans and rice were the first things we started out with because we saw that there was a need for that,” said Magaly, who described how they’d sell key uncooked ingredients for the entrees they’d generally prepa...

Is online sports betting legal in Canada?

Canada is among the most liberal states in the world and in many regards, it is even ahead of the United States. When it comes to online sports betting, people would expect Canadians to be allowed to legally bet on their favorite teams and athletes. The fact that the legal framework is not clear is surely surprising, but steps are being taken in the right direction. For now, many online forms of games remain in the gray area, but at least players are not in danger of suffering the repercussion...

Flyers Lookback: Signing Danny Briere

Throughout the late 2000s and early 2010s, the Flyers had quite an offensive core on their roster. They had many key players who made a difference in their lineups, such as James van Riemsdyk, Scott Hartnell, Simon Gagne, and Jeff Carter among others. Related: Worst Free Agent Signings in NHL History One guy who always made a huge impact, and in my opinion, was one of the best acquisitions the Flyers made during this time period, was center Danny Briere.

Marlowe Stoudamire, A Driving Force Behind ‘Learn, Play, Score’ Dies Due To Coronavirus

from William Douglas of NHL.com, Marlowe Stoudamire never scored a goal, blocked a shot or logged a minute of ice time in an NHL game. But that didn't stop him from becoming a change agent in the sport. Stoudamire, a Detroit native, was a driving force in the Detroit Red Wings, NHL and NHL Players' Association launch in February of "Learn, Play, Score," an ambitious $1 million pilot program to bring hockey to more than 30,000 children in the city.

Debt and deficits still matter, right?

There are many reasons for America to spend its money wisely and not rack up debt. But the best reason is to be prepared for emergency situations like a pandemic. As such, it’s not the $2.2 trillion price tag on the coronavirus stimulus package that concerns me — it’s the trillions of dollars that preceded it. In fact, these are the times that the government should intervene, especially since it is the government that ordered the economy to close. For what it’s worth, I believe the COVID-19 cris...

We don’t need to densify to save the planet or solve our housing crisis

The coronavirus pandemic is now on track to be far less lethal than first predicted by the Imperial College London study that set off the alarming response we’re living in today. But it could turn out to be fatal to the plans of so-called urbanists in California. These are the advocates for “transit-oriented housing,” high-density apartments near public transportation, who have been telling Californians for years that single-family homes are a waste of resources and bad for the planet. That argu...

Coronavirus outbreak reveals big financial shortcomings

The rapidly expanding COVID-19 pandemic threatens the lives and livelihoods of Californians, but it also lays bare some multi-billion-dollar shortcomings in state government finances that have been ignored for decades, despite many warnings. The most obvious is the state budget’s unhealthy reliance on taxing the incomes of a relative handful of wealthy Californians. Income taxes generate about 70% of the state’s general fund revenues and about half of those taxes are paid by the 1% of California...

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press, Seider’s 22 points and .45 points-per-game average ranks second among Griffins defensemen. Overall, he gets high marks from Shawn Horcoff, the team’s director of player development. “When you draft a guy as high as we drafted Moritz, there are high expectations,” Horcoff said. “We are really happy with where he is at, with where he was at when the league shut down. He was playing 23-plus minutes a night, sometimes 25. His offensive game...
