We can all get off Don Cherry's behind now

CBC just posted a story that a lawyer in Winnipeg proved Don Cherry right.

What's the point with the 3-point system?

So the NHL wants to go to the 3-point game, do they? Well let me be the first to offer an opinion.

Martin Brodeur's All-Star Team…

Martin Brodeur writes, from time to time, his own column in a Quebec newspaper.

And so here we go, here are some of my thoughts upon seeing the AHL All-Star Skills Competition:

And as such, you also see things you wouldn’t normally see.
