The 8 Best Defensive Forwards in Hockey History

  To many, high scoring, firewagon hockey carries the highest degree of entertainment. While others, this author included, prefer the bite-your-nails-to-the-knuckle closeness of a hard-fought, tactically masterful, defensive battle. Though many may not realize it while clamoring for larger nets, the elimination of the offside whistle and marbles to replace hockey pucks, the sporting world turns to the tightly-contested Stanley Cup Playoffs for the most rugged marathon of organized on the world s...

Guerrero Jr. highlights promising class of young Blue Jays prospects

TORONTO — Vlad Guerrero Jr. wants to be the best player he can when he steps onto the baseball field each day. Turns out that dedication translates to the ice, too. Guerrero, the Blue Jays top prospect who tore through double-A and triple-A pitching last season, tried his hand at curling earlier this week with some of his minor-league teammates at the Leaside Curling Club in Toronto. "It was difficult, it was difficult," he said with a smile when asked about the experience. "It was really hard a...

Maple Leafs’ Return If They Move Johnsson or Kapanen

On Jan. 17, Jim Parsons’ rumors report cited Bob McKenzie’s belief that the Toronto Maple Leafs would consider trading Andreas Johnsson or Kasperi Kapanen in the right deal. McKenzie was clear that the Maple Leafs needed a good defenseman, and noted during a segment of First Up on TSN Radio 1050 Toronto: “If you’re gonna get a good defenseman, and they obviously want to get a good defenseman, you’ve got to give up something of value. And not only would the first-round pick be in play, but ...

Fourteen-year-old Gogolev poised to make Canadian figure skating history

Local restaurants improving airports

For decades, airport food choices were dismal. Your options basically came down to greasy chains or peanuts on the plane. That stayed true even as people in the US started to care more about where they ate and where their food came from in the mid-1990s. But now airports are starting to catch up. Flight hubs across the country are bringing in local restaurants to give travelers a taste of the city without leaving the airport — and not just in fancy airport lounges. Today’s travelers can get l...

NHL Rumors: Senators, Red Wings, Hurricanes, More

In today’s rumor rundown, the Ottawa Senators are talking with their free agents and while things aren’t there yet, there are signs that deals might get done. The Detroit Red Wings have a number of free agents that could fetch a decent return but the team may choose to re-sign them and the Carolina Hurricanes trade for Nino Niederreiter is likely not the only move this team makes in the next couple weeks. Finally, could William Nylander be traded in the offseason? One former Maple Leafs GM seems...

Why Jake Gardiner Will Leave the Toronto Maple Leafs

Toronto Maple Leaf fans likely won’t agree, but Jake Gardiner is a really good hockey player. If you don’t think so, watch what happens when he becomes an unrestricted free agent after his contract ends this summer. Teams will line up to sign him, and he will accept one of those offers, for good money. There is no question Gardiner will leave the Maple Leafs, but it won’t be because the team doesn’t want him. They simply won’t be able to afford him, nor will he be inclined to stay. The tea...

How to Recover from Google’s Medic Algorithm Update | Digital Marketing Agency Tips

In the week of August 1st, 2018 Google rolled out a “broad core algorithm update.” This update was dubbed the “Medic update” by SEO expert Barry Schwartz.

That said sites in other industries took a bit hit, too. That makes sense because Google’s core updates are global and affect all pages across the internet. Our digital marketing agency in Tor...

Escape Clause is making Santa Anita her home away from home

Sometimes in life, no matter what the risk, you take a huge swing and either hit the ball out of the park or screw yourself into the ground while striking out (think Bugs Bunny cartoon). It just so happens that 66-year-old thoroughbred owner-trainer Don Schnell has taken at least two such swings while hitting grand slams each time. The first was when he plopped down a measly $3,800 to buy Escape Clause at a horse sale. She’s earned $423,500 by winning 19 of her 28 races since. Try getting a retu...
