Thank You

Barry Trotz's long run as head coach of the Nashville Predators has come to a close, and one fan wants to offer up his thanks.

Full bracket update (conference semis edition)

Well, that was exciting. Leave it to the Blackhawks to potentially screw everyone over (or Stephen Walkom, if you choose), but Brent Seabrook's OT winner kept everyone with at least one remaining...

1st Round Full Bracket update

The Stanley Cup Playoffs field has been cut in half, so it's time to update the Full Bracket Challenge. Two notes: 1. Ties are broken based on how many correct winners were picked. 2. To get the...

2013 Full Bracket Challenge

Given that it might be a little more difficult to watch the postseason this time around, maybe we can renew our full bracket challenge for another go-around. Instead of rehashing the rules as they...

It's about that time again

Okay, so the Preds didn't exactly burn up the West this year. Doesn't mean we can't still have a little postseason fun, though. Just like last year, I have fired up an ESPN Playoff Hockey...

2013: The season of the *

I decided not to make a snap judgement on the Erat deal and instead slept on it before this. Feel free to imagine the voice of Morgan Freeman as you read. Outside my door, it's raining. Again....

Yeah, about that realignment...

I think that most, if not all, people with any sense whatsoever will agree that realignment needed to happen in some way, shape or form. If nothing else, at least make it more equitable for poor...

Offsides, by Matt Duchene

Basic description of one of the main rules of hockey. Too bad the linesman (derp) was out to lunch when it happened.

Stupid Western Conference Picks

I may have tipped my hand earlier as to who I thought will win the Central Division (okay, I did), so I'll expand it a bit more and take on the wild, wild West. (No ping-pong balls were damaged in...

Both sides are sinners, and we as fans are being sacrificed

I should be watching hockey tonight. Instead, I'm switching between baseball games and football, because there's no hockey to watch. ESPN trolled us with that farce of "play-by-play" that Levy...

The Nashville Predators are holding the hockey media hostage, and they may have just planned it this way.

How has #SuterWatch affected you?

The Preds need scoring, but they also need something else

I've let the last couple of days sink in since Dustin Brown raised the Cup and dropped an f-bomb on national TV. It was a loud release of all the "weight" off of the shoulders of a franchise that...

Old Jets + New Jets = this uniform concept

Ross Taylor's meshing of both Winnipeg Jets incarnations results in this concept. Personally, I think it rocks, but what do you think?

When is a zebra not really a zebra? When you're an NHL linesman

If Alexander Radulov broke in on goal, got hooked on the way in and no penalty was called, did it really happen? Think about that question for a moment. A linesman probably saw the infraction but...
