 summer speculation 12 August 2010

As I’m sure most of you were also doing last night, I watched the NHL Network air the ABC/ESPN broadcast of the 2002 Stanley Cup Game 5 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.  Gary Thorne and Bill Clement kept reiterating the star power, and the to-be Hall of Fame players.  That …

 Uncategorized 25 April 2010

Not even kidding.
I received the opportunity to conduct a phoner interview with Brendan Shanahan, currently the VP of Hockey and Business Development (or, as his Twitter profile says, VP of “blah blah blahblahblah”) at the NHL.  I had a double-take moment where I debated the validity of this offer, and …

 game preview 1 March 2010

Well, the Olympics are over and it’s back to the regular season grind.  The Wings are sitting in 10th seed, tied at 68 points with Dallas who has the tie breaker (they had to go all the way to Goals For, strangely, and sadly, Dallas cleaned up in that department), …

I went to Warren 77, Avery’s bar in NYC, this past Friday (with some of my favorite Twitter people).  I had heard about the picture that he had hanging in the bathroom, so of course I had to see it immediately.

 Uncategorized 19 November 2009

I’ll have something longer on Shanahan this week, but for now I just wanted to point out an article on NHL.com about Shanny when he was in St. Louis.  I think it really just captures what kind of player Shanny was, and why cities like St. Louis and Detroit fell …

 Uncategorized 6 August 2009

I am so glad to hear that Brendan Shanahan will be returning for another season with the New Jersey Devils–and more importantly, with the National Hockey League.  The league is by far a better place with him in it, and it’ll be a sad day when he hangs up the …
