This is part one of three in my analysis of Bob Murray's track record looking at his creativity, negotiation skills, and ability to execute a well-orchestrated trade. I must admit, part of me came into writing this a bit biased towards what I thought was a poor track record for Murray. Sure, he won the 2014 General Manager of the Year award, but...

What's Going on Bob?  Entering the dog days of August is a rough time for every hockey fan.  The excitement of the NHL Draft and all the wheeling and dealing involved with that are a distant memory since June.  Memories of general managers going crazy handing out deals on July 1 have subsided as they sit back and wonder, “What on earth was...

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are hosting "Ducks Night" on August 16 when they face the Seattle Mariners. As a part of the festivities, they will sport some pretty good-looking hybrid gear.
