The Instigator |Episode 18 Stop the Childish Celebration     I am all for having fun when you play hockey. That is why we play the game..but what the Carolina Hurricanes have been doing after wins at home has me shaking my head. What is happening to this league.

Going Through The 2018 NHL 3rd Jerseys...So Far

Going Through The 2018 NHL 3rd Jerseys...So Far

There is a common theme with most of the NHL 3rd jersey releases in 2018. They're nostalgic and simple. Many of the 3rd jerseys were alterations of the previous Stadium Series jerseys worn by some of the teams. Others, were completely new with a resemblance of Deja Vu infused in the sweater. It's definitely familiar, except now Adidas is branded onto the jersey where as before, it was Reebok's duty.   Anaheim Ducks This modern classic was released for the 25th anniversary se

NHLErrata launch

Ever since I started collecting the NHL data it was very important to me to validate the collected information. So I created a set of checks that finally formed a whole library to test both the NHL boxscore feeds and the HTML reports. I managed to fish out quite a few errors and inconsistencies. Some where systemic, and could be fixed in software, some required a manual intervention, sometimes by editing the source file, sometimes by providing the correct value overriding what the parser woul

The Instigator |Episode 17 Death Threats…C’mon People     Well the Elias Pettersson hit from Florida Panthers defenseman Michael Matheson was one thing, but death threats is way out of line. The suspension was handed down from the NHL and it was two games. Was it a little much, yes maybe, but then in the week following Matheson has now received death threats from Vancouver fans. That is not hockey, and those fans should be embarrassed of their behavior.   PODCAST

Lock for Rookie of the Year

My Lock for Rookie of the Year   Elias Pettersson has taken the NHL by storm. Three goals and two assists in his first two games in the NHL.

October 1st, 2018 marks a big day in the Islanders world as another Adidas alternate jersey was beautifully delivered to the world. I want to be the first to show you how the elements of this jersey design come together (in this case, deconstructed) with meaning and significance.   The jersey itself is very simple in design, but the colours blend nicely together.

I also had San Jose slotted in to go #1 even before the announcement of the blockbuster trade so this was mean’t to be.   This team keeps finding ways to get good players on the team whether it’s trade or drafting, GM Doug Wilson gets the job done and he is the reason why the Sharks have been a consistently great team.

It was a relatively quiet off-season for the Pens but they didn’t need to make many moves. They signed Jack Johnson to a multi-year deal to shore up the blueline which is one of the team’s weak spots. It wouldn’t be surprising if the Pens make it to another Stanley Cup Final and what’s different this year compared to the last couple of seasons is
