Being that there is a lull right now before training camps begin and looking into the situation with the KHL with Radulov, Hudler and others, plus the Balsillie situation with Phoenix/Hamilton…
I suggest the following things be on the list of things to seriously talk about at the next meeting of the minds. (An [...]
Johnny can’t read and Sidney can’t shoot. This may sound crazy but… The number one goal scorer in the playoffs last year is atrocious at shooting the puck. When you look at the goals he scored, only one goal was from a shot more than five feet away. You can view all 15 goals here:
Philadelphia’s coach John Stevens wi [...]

Notes from observing a few prospect conditioning camp ‘workouts’ at Southpointe Iceoplex. What some don’t realize is that the objective of these ‘workouts’ beside building some team bonding is to conduct physical tests, instructional sets, and layout a fitness and training program customized for each player in a [...]

There are what seems to be a record number of detailed projections available. Now what’s totally hilarious about almost all of these publications and websites offering the latest scoop is that they are almost the same. And while most of these services cost a few pennies t [...]

The Secondary Awards Banquet is tomorrow… the Entry Draft next week… and Free Agency about a week later so there is no time to rest for Ray Shero and his management team.
