Ottawa Senators Fire Paul MacLean

The Ottawa Senators have fired coach Paul MacLean on Monday and have named Dave Cameron as his replacement. The move may seem sudden and strange, especially given the fact that the Edmonton Oilers are inhabiting the basement and have thus far stood by their coach. And Ottawa’s firing of MacLean also seems sudden and strange […]

Daniel Alfredsson Officially Announces Retirement

Is It Time for the Youth Movement in Florida?

21 games into the season, the Florida Panthers find themselves pretty much where most people thought they would be. They boast a 9-6-6 record, with a dismal 45 goals to show for themselves and 53 against. In terms of scoring, the Panthers have received production from Jussi Jokinen and Nick Bjugstad in particular. Both have […]

Rick Nash Dominates Even Strength Scoring – Again

Here’s an interesting statistic: since being traded to the New York Rangers, Rick Nash has been the most prolific even-strength scorer in the National Hockey League. Sure, he’s traditionally struggled to score in the post-season when it’s mattered most. In the 2014 playoffs, Nash popped in just three goals on 83 shots over the course […]
