Is Dallas Eakins "Dave"?

I have a friend who once worked for a manager he couldn't stand. The manager, we'll call him "Dave", thought rather highly of himself. He believed in leadership and knew all the platitudes that...

Trying Different Advanced Hockey Stats

As a follower of advanced statistics in hockey, I'm always on the lookout for stats that I consider "meaningful". Hockey is a difficult game to measure and there is always a chance that the data...

Why does the Canucks' draft record suck? Here's why . . .

NHL Player Salaries and Deductions

A Dozen Thoughts on the State of The Oilers

Getting Tired of the Criticism
