As summer comes to an end and we move towards the 2015-16 regular season, many similarities between the Los Angeles Kings and Boston Bruins have surfaced. Both Los Angeles and Boston have been among the elite franchises in recent history. In the past five years, both teams have hoisted the Stanley Cup, the Bruins in 2011 and the Kings in 2012...

Welcome to part two of the top-ten best defensemen in the NHL. Last week I published part one, and ranked players ten through six. You can read it here if you want to. After publishing the article, my suspicions about how underrated Jake Muzzin is were confirmed when I was inundated with responses questioning my sanity, my hockey acumen, and...

This isn't how things were supposed to pan out for the Los Angeles Kings. They seemed primed to become the first team to repeat since the Detroit Red Wings of the late 1990's. Instead, they failed to even reach the playoffs after winning the 2013-14 Stanley Cup, their second in three seasons. Of all Cup hangovers, theirs was the most epic. They...

Everybody has a nightmare scenario in their lives. A common one is going to work or school without pants on, or forgetting an important assignment or presentation at home. For young hockey players, one prominent nightmare involves going to the NHL's annual entry draft...and not being taken. That was almost the reality for Kingston...
