Detroit Red Wings: The Good, The Bad, And The Osgood

Pre-season is always interesting. The scores don’t really matter that much, but what makes the games good to watch, are the new players, the young players, and the new lines that get tested.

Straight off the bat, Modano looks a quality addition to the Wings’ roster. The arguments that he’s too old, are from people [...]

San Jose Sharks: Observations From A Quirky Pre-Season Game

Because of a quirk in the schedule where the Sharks need to finish their pre-season early for their trip to Sweden, the Sharks split their squad with Phoenix that had them play a home game in San Jose and any away game in Phoenix. I’ve always felt that the Bay Area does not have [...]

Coyotes Ownership Inspired Board Game…”Clueless”

Oh the drama, the intrigue, the incredible mess. I wasn’t going to talk about this. I really wasn’t but a “mystery” buyer into the now infamous Phoenix Coyote saga?
