Last week the Anaheim Ducks twitter account sent out the following tweet to all of its followers, “Paul Kariya’s unforgettable goal in Game 6 of the 2003 Stanley Cup Finals moves on to the next round in our Honda Center 20 Top Sports Moments.” It is a memorable moment indeed, but for me it is the constant reminder of the brutal hits my childhood idol took over the course of his career. Paul Kariya retired when his doctors advised him to stop playing, due to potentially having Post-concussion Syndrome(PCS). The good news for Kariya fans is More >

A lot of people on this forum tell me that it’s nice to collect someone who isn’t a superstar like Sidney Crosby or Steven Stamkos. It’s refreshing to see someone collect an average player. Well let me tell you, to me, he’s a superstar. Perhaps more.
I am talking about my favorite hockey player, Miroslav Satan. Miro started as a very late draft pick by the Oilers, then traveled a few times from Buffalo, to Long Island, to Pittsburgh to Boston. That’s where his NHL days ended. He would then go on to win a championship with More >

During the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs, the National Hockey League announced the implementation of new rules to be either tried out or used during play for the 2013-14 pre-season. One of those rules dictate that the current size of goaltender equipment should be smaller, trying to increase the number of goals scored in each game. According to the stats at quanthockey.com, goal scoring in the NHL was at its lowest in 2012-13 since the late 90s when the NHL experienced a big decrease in goals scored. But is shrinking the size of the goalie’s equipment really More >

With sound speed, skill and physicality, the Chicago Blackhawks ousted the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Finals Monday. Within just a few hours of Chicago skating around on enemy ice with Lord Stanley’s cup raised high, droves of people took to eBay to sell memorabilia from this series. To the winner goes the spoils is the norm on eBay right now, for most memorabilia auctioning nicely belongs to the Blackhawks.

Usually everyone who follows hockey has a favorite NHL team and worships it to some degree or another, whether it be watching the games, or naming your pets after your favorite players. Though NHL is seen as the face of hockey, it always intrigues me how loyally people follow minor leagues and hometown teams. I know that there is nothing better than stopping in somewhere for a hockey game and observing the sense of ‘secluded’ community that exists, and that one die-hard fan that sits in the nosebleeds and hollers at the top of his lungs More >

The National Hockey League has had its fair share of lopsided trades over the years. Eric Lindros was drafted by the Nordiques and then traded to the Philadelphia Flyers for Kerry Huffman, Steve Duchesne, Ron Hextall, Mike Ricci, Chris Simon, Peter Forsberg, future draft picks and an undisclosed (but rumored to be around ten to fifteen million dollars) in cash. The Vancouver Canucks sent Cam Neely along with a first-round draft pick to the Boston Bruins for Barry Pederson. That first-round pick was used to select Glen Wesley, who went on to play over 1,400 games More >
