The Oilers aren't doing so well this season. (I cited the many reasons why). And their disappointing start has led to the predictable trade talk. Who are they going to move for a defenceman? It's no secret their defence needs vast improvement, and unless a stud free agent becomes available (Dustin Byfuglien for example), or there is a real gem to...

Phil Kessel has not missed a game since returning from shoulder surgery in 2009. He spent six years wasting away as a part of the continually disappointing Toronto Maple Leafs and he finally escaped over the offseason. Kessel has a poor reputation because of his physical size, sometimes lackadaisical backchecking and aversion to speaking...

The NHL Department of Player Safety handed down a one-game suspension to Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky on Saturday for cross-checking Penguins center Sidney Crosby. The NHL got this one right. I don't think there is too much debate on whether Dubinsky should be suspended. Most expected him to get something. Where the debate will rage on...

The rivalry between the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Pittsburgh Penguins is simply fictitious. I have seen those words, and many similar ones, on multiple social media sites recently.

Last night the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Pittsburgh Penguins in a hockey game. Seems innocent enough right? One team wins, while the other loses.

The Pittsburgh Penguins started the season in an uncharacteristic fashion, they were struggling to score goals. But more importantly, they weren't winning a lot of games. Well, after 21 games, the Penguins have a record of 13-8 and are currently third in the Metropolitan Division. There were a lot of people confused, upset and angry over how...

Matthew Barnaby of Sirius XM recently reported that there is a "rift" between Pittsburgh Penguins' Captain Sidney Crosby and Owner Mario Lemieux. The conversation came up during his radio show. And, while this story is still new and there hasn't been much detail divulged on what the issue is, it's very interesting to say the least. Is there a...

Unfortunately, injuries are a very large part of each NHL season. It is inevitable for players to go down while flying around a sheet of ice surrounded by solid boards, all while standing on a 2.8 millimetre thick piece of steel. Of course, among those many injuries, some will find the superstars of the league. Injuries that could present a...
