2015-2016 Season Preview: Edmonton Oilers

The Edmonton Oilers came out of the 2014-2015 season with a 24-44-14 record, putting them sixth in the Pacific Division with 62 points. The Arizona Coyotes finished with 56 points and the Buffalo Sabres had 54, so it could’ve been worse for the Oilers. Edmonton scored a disappointing 193 goals, the second worst offensive totals […]

Is it Time for Detroit’s Johan Franzen to Retire?

The story of one Johan Franzen continues to play out in the Detroit area media and beyond and it seems like only a matter of time before it reaches its proverbial conclusion.

2015-2016 Season Preview: Detroit Red Wings

Despite finishing the regular season with a 43-25-14 record and landing third in the Atlantic Division, the Detroit Red Wings knew something had to change.

2015-2016 Season Preview: Dallas Stars

The Dallas Stars walked out of 2014-2015 with a mission. They posted a 41-31-10 record, good for sixth in the Central Division and not good enough for a playoff spot.

Police Confirm That Patrick Kane is Under Investigation

The Internet has already dutifully exploded in Patrick Kane think-pieces, as it is inclined to do whenever something provocative takes place. For those who’ve been sleeping under a rock somewhere, here’s the story so far. The National Hockey League is “following the developments” of an ongoing police investigation involving the Chicago Blackhawks star. The Blackhawks […]

2015-2016 Season Preview: Columbus Blue Jackets

When the dust settled on the 2014-2015 season, the Columbus Blue Jackets stood with a 42-35-5 record.
