Kings Prospect Kozun Wins WHL Scoring Title

+

Which is apparently named for Bobby Clarke. Who knew? Anyway, Kozun had four points in an 8-1 pounding of the Red Deer Rebels in the last game of the season to finish with 107 on the year, one ahead of Oilers prospect Jordan Eberle.

On Playoff Futility

+

I did some investigating, and it turns out the Coyotes own the ignoble honour of the longest playoff futility streak in NHL history, surpassing the '50s and '60s New York Rangers by missing the playoffs last year. I'm personally hoping, for the sake of the fans, that this team is the one to break that streak. They've never won a series in Phoenix, and have only claimed two series since joining the NHL in 1979: it's time for a change.

The Oilers Diaspora

Procrastination and Hockey-Reference.com are a lethal combination. You didn't want to know where all the former Oilers are in the NHL this year, but now you do anyway.

We'll see!

Having your own Dion Phaneuf is a big responsibility. If you're going to feed and care for it properly, you need to be able to understand what it's feeling. This helpful guide should make that easier.

I'm reading reports that Dion Phaneuf was "emotional" this morning over being traded to the Maple Leafs. Personally, I'm not convinced anyone could actually tell, given past history.

Pass or Fail: Curtis Joseph as a Hockey Hall of Fame goalie

With Cujo calling 'er a career, Puck Daddy ponders his Hall of Fame cred. I know Contrarian Goalie's a big fan, but for me, I'll always remember The Save right before Marchant downed Goliath in OT in 1997. I actually don't know how I'd call this right now. What say you?

WJHC Days Nine and Ten: A worthy championship in an unworthy tournament

The Relationship Between Hitting and Winning

+

A few days ago, I gave Willis heck for only looking at the top- and bottom-five hitting teams in the NHL since 2000 and arriving at the conclusion that there was a negative relationship between hitting and winning, and suggested that a correlation of all 30 teams' values would give a more complete picture. It took longer than expected, between company on the weekend, router issues, and work, but that analysis is now up on The New SNN Sports (*sigh*) for all to see.
