Why didn't the 1999 Stars petition to have Brad Lukowich or Doug Lidster added to the cup?

The Stars did petition to have the names of Brent Severyn (30 games, no playoff games) and Derek Plante (16 games, no playoff games) included, and the petition was granted. But they didn't petition...

Yes, the CBA allows Radulov to return to the NHL without clearing waivers


No one has questioned whether or not Nashville retains Radulov's rights. Well, part of those rights is their right to exercise Radulov's waiver-exemption. The clock on that exemption stopped in 2008.

Fun with graphs: how our logs got jammed


This graph shows the W% of each of our fellow logjammers (LAK, CHI, CGY, PHX, COL, SJS, DAL) after each of their first 70-71 games. I cut the graph off at .400 (floor) and .700 (ceiling) so that...

Photofinish in the West


I'm away from my spreadsheets today but I wanted to get the conversation going regarding the Kings' playoff chances and the general playoff picture in the West. Bullets: The Kings are in 11th...

Fun with graphs: goals-for and goals-against


The Kings have scored 18 goals in the five games since Jack Johnson departed and Jeff Carter arrived. I wondered if that's the most the Kings have scored over any five game period this season. It...

If I didn't already think Bruce Boudreau was a really good coach I would think he was dumb

Marc Crawford says the playoff threshold could be high 80s in the West

Kings have 10 goals in the last six games and Andrei Loktionov has three of them


So obviously the sensible thing to do is send him to f***ing Manchester. Dustin Brown and Justin Williams each have 2 goals, Drew Doughty, Jordan Nolan and Dwight Kings each have one. One of...

Today's scandalous topic: what do you want for Dustin Brown?

Kings trade Jack Johnson, Wayne Simmonds, Brayden Schenn and a 1st for Mike Richards and Jeff Carter


As much as I like Wayne Simmonds, Brayden Schenn and Jack Johnson, how can you not make that trade? And, if you look at today's deal and last summer's deal as one protracted mega-blockbuster, who...
