After Rasmus Dahlin went all season last year as the consensus first-overall 2018 NHL Draft choice, it is quite obvious that sometimes players are too far ahead of their peers to be caught. For a...
As I promised in the RFA/prospect write-up, UFA players from the KHL are also getting a write-up from me, so here it is. Although I must say that with UFAs it is much harder to make predictions,...
This article provides some analysis of the results from the recent HF Top Player polls series.
DISCLAIMER: I am NOT a Leafs fan by any stretch of the imagination. I do like their team though, and despite an annoying as hell fan base online they are quite loyal and are a grade A...
The numbers for every available season have been crunched... here are the top 25 most valuable forwards by WAR since the start of the 07-08 season: (DGS= defensive goals saved, FO=faceoffs, PD=...
This will be the first column of dining options around the NHL world. When I am on the road I try to eat where the locals do and avoid chains. Western New York has always been known for casual...
MY TOP 31 DRAFT 2019 I did this last season too. My main purpose is to watch these kids play, form my own opinion -- stick my neck out if you want -- and carefully create my own ranking, so that...
