Fantasy Hockey Keeper League – What does Keeper Mean?

After reading my first few blogs, I realized that some in the reading community may not have grasped the keeper league idea. For this reason, I’ve decided to dedicate this post to supplying a bit more information about what a keeper league is and how you, the illustrious reader, can get involved: What is a […]

NHL Players’ Revenge?

When I heard of Sergei Kostitsyn’s trade request because he was sent down to the Hamilton Bulldogs by the Montreal Canadiens (and now threats of his leaving for the KHL), it made me wonder if this is the start of a trend in which any NHL hopeful that does not make the NHL club will […]

“Both” Phoenix Bids Rejected

Jim Balsillie’s long, exhausting process to purchase the Phoenix Coyotes franchise with designs on moving it to Hamilton has come to an end. U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Redfield T. Baum rejected both offers to buy the financially ailing franchise: one from the Canadian billionaire and the other from the NHL. Of course, the NHL was […]

Kings Interested in Gretzky

If Wayne Gretzky should decide to head back into the coaching arena after his tenure ended rather shamefully in Phoenix, there may well be a spot for him behind the bench of the Los Angeles Kings. Of course, serious hockey fans don’t need a brush-up on the extensive history between the Great One and the […]

Theo Fleury Retires a Flame

Theoren Fleury has decided to retire as a Calgary Flame. He attempted a comeback with the Flames that dazzled many and inspired all, but it was not to be as the Flames released him on Friday from his tryout agreement. At 41, Fleury was always going to be a risk to the Flames. After being […]

Burke’s Tougher Leafs

Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke promised that things would be tougher in Toronto this season. In the summer, he said that his Leafs would be feared opponents, that players would struggle to win pucks and would pay for every opportunity they got. When Burke took over the post in November of 2008, he said […]

Theo Fleury Released By Flames

At 5’6, Theoren Fleury was always a long shot in the National Hockey League. His spirit was never in question, however, and that’s why many journalists viewed his comeback at Calgary Flames training camp with seriousness and optimism. When he hit the ice in the pre-season, Fleury was a dynamo. He scored four points, including […]

Canucks Lock Up Coach Vigneault

In locking up head coach Alain Vigneault through to the 2012-2013 NHL season, the Vancouver Canucks have sealed the puzzle for the upcoming season and seem to have all the pieces in place. Vigneault’s contract would have expired at the conclusion of the 2009-2010 season and might have left some question marks on the club’s […]

Shades of John Ferguson Jr. in Landing Phil Kessel?

For the record I would like to state that I am a Toronto Maple Leafs fan. I am a little concerned about the Leafs acquiring Phil Kessel. The concern I have is not related to the trade of 1st and 2nd round for 2010 and 1st in 2011 for Phil Kessel. I was sitting at […]
