San Jose Sharks: Post Season Post Mortem

Before we begin let me remind everyone that I don’t consider myself educated on any matters related to actually playing hockey.  In fact within the scope of my lifetime I’ve watched hockey the least (6 years) compared to all the other major sports.
General Manager Doug Wilson was heard commenting the other day about the San [...]

Phoenix Coyotes Advance to Round 2..Let’s Go Shopping!

Monday night’s triumph over the Chicago Blackhawks (yeah I know, you heard) was more than just a win, it was validation on being a Phoenix Coyotes fan. For the past 2+ years us few, the proud and the resilient, have taken a lot of grief. Doomsayers who negated the team’s worth to the city and [...]

San Jose Sharks: How The West ‘Was’ And ‘Was Not’ Won

What seemed painfully obvious for most of this hockey season became a reality as the San Jose Sharks not only exited the playoffs but did so in a fashion consistent with their play over 82 regular season games.  I’m not the only one who had very low expectations heading into the playoffs - expectations that [...]

Phoenix Coyotes: Mikkel Boedker and Why I Love Being Right

After tonight’s 2nd game winning goal in OT (once again, they are going to kill me!) it has finally become apparent to the hockey world what I have known all along..that Mikkel Boedker is a real talent and asset. I have written for years about his incredible speed with my chosen nickname for him being [...]

Phoenix Coyotes: OT..AGAIN. They Are Gonna Kill Me.

Why OT is Bad for a Hockey Fan’s Health
After tonight’s OT win in Chicago, making the series 3-1 in the Coyotes favor and Mikkel Boedker a Phoenix hero, it appears that the Phoenix Coyotes  and Chicago Blackhawks are working hard to give their fans their money’s worth and to make this series as exciting as [...]

San Jose Sharks: Observations From The Cheap Seats

One of the best things about having seats in the penultimate row of the arena is that I can see everything going on rather easily.  When the San Jose Sharks went down in defeat to the St. Louis Blues last night I was able to see the goal coming on two of the Blues’ power [...]

Deja Vu, JuJu and The Phoenix Coyotes Lose Game 2

Déjà vu (French pronunciation: [deʒa vy] literally “already seen”) is the experience of feeling sure that one has already witnessed or experienced a current situation.
I can’t think of a more appropriate word to describe Game 2 in the Phoenix Coyotes vs Chicago Blackhawks series. It bore a striking resemblence to the first game of the series. [...]

Phoenix Coyotes: The Wizarding World Of Ray Whitney

I know it’s been done. You already know that Ray Whitney of the Phoenix Coyotes got his 1000th career point. You know that it was on a beautiful assist to Radim Vrbata and how he pulled the puck out of the net to present it to Whitney.
Yes I know but you haven’t heard it told [...]
