My one and only lockout blogpost

I'm tired of reading about the lockout. It is just fueling my continued hatred for the way things work in this league. So here is my one and only blog post until all of this ridiculous crap is over. Regardless of whether there are games this season or not, I will not be buying tickets, merch, gamecenter live, etc. from the NHL for this season or next. I suggest you do the same. The reason this lockout has been drawn out so long is because the NHL and NHLPA know that whenever hockey does resume,

Round 2: Results and Predictions

Three game 7's, an 8 over 1 victory, and the cup favorites knocked out... round one was everything we hoped for and then some. While we have about a 20 hour break between rounds here, I thought I would make some more predictions for round two as well as take a look at some correct predictions and some predictions I was WAY off on in the first round. My HOPES for round one were way more accurate than my THINKS for round one. I guess that's what I get for thinking like an analyst. My record for pr

The Best Time of the Year: notes and predictions

Holy Hell. It's like Christmas right now! I love this time of year and as I wrap up my final quarter at college, I hope my grades don't slip as I spend every moment on my laptop in the back of class watching games. Everyone seems to be using this time to make their prediction on what will happen down the stretch. I'm going to start by making some anti-predictions: 1. The Sharks will NOT win the cup this year! Big surprise here, as the playoff failures once again find themselves rolling into the

Danger on the Horizon...

I can't stress enough how important this time of year is for any hockey team. The hot hand is the nature of the game, especially for the first couple of rounds of the playoffs. How many major upsets have we seen post-lockout? 8-seeds beating 1-seeds, home ice advantage going right out the window and division leaders being playoff busts. It may help to finish as high as possible, but a hot handed low seed can go deep in the playoffs. Remember in the 2010 playoffs when the Eastern Conference champ

Roenick and Sharks Fans: Get a Grip

Last year during the playoffs, Jeremy Roenick spoke out after game 5 against the Red Wings on his hatred for Patrick Marleau's style of hockey. Marleau, pretty much the most consistently great player in Sharks history, was especially outstanding in a game 7 victory a few nights later. Was Marleau actually bad in game 5? No. He got stripped of the puck in his own zone by a magician on the wall (Pavel Datsyuk), then got back to force Datsyuk to pass to the point on an eventual goal. A great p

Week in Review: Flying right along...

Heading down to the Shark Tank last tuesday I was expecting anything but a goalie battle. Bryzgalov's struggle's have been obvious and Niemi was on a bit of a drought himself going 2-5-1 in his last 8 games. When the first shot of the game for the Sharks went in we figured we were in for a scoring onslaught, and yet it never came. The game against the Sharks, as well as the last 2 against New York and Washington, have given me nothing but hope moving forward for the Flyers. I can honestly say th

NHL 36 with Mike Richards

Just found this link to NHL 36 featuring Mike Richards in case anyone missed it or doesn't have NHL Network. I love this program, it's really cool to get a behind the scene glimpse of the NHL elite. Some highlights: - A program coordinator doesn't recognize Richards at his interview, proving his point of less recognition in LA as compared to Philly (He seems to be embracing the quieter role in LA). - A sushi dinner with Doughty and Lewis in which it takes the crew 20 minutes to realize Andrei Lo

Flyers and Kings: Moving Forward

Two games, Four Points by: Trevor Rocco The NHL Trade Deadline is almost upon us. The Flyers and Kings have both done their part in making noise around the league in an attempt to send a news bulletin out that they are in this to win. After two big wins and four big points gained by the clubs on saturday, I want to reflect on some of the things that are getting me excited moving forward, and some things that continue to have me dumbfounded night in and night out. I'll pose some questions at the

Jeff Carter, the perfect fit for the LA Kings

A history of the last 5 seasons of the Philadelphia Flyers and Why Jeff Carter is the perfect fit for the LA Kings by: Trevor Rocco The L.A. Kings are looking for scoring, that is a given. The Kings have been consistently in the bottom of NHL team scoring for quite a few seasons now. To their defense, they have one of the best defense (no pun intended) core and goaltending core in the league which have kept them in the playoff hunt for the last two or three seasons. A lot has been said about Jef
