Bracket Time…March Madness, NHL style – Sweet 16

There is nothing bigger in March in the U.S. then the NCAA tournament, particularly the betting via brackets. There is nothing bigger in March (or any other month for that matter) in Canada then the NHL. This is what happens when worlds collide.

Goalies Are Over-Protected

After seeing Darcy Hordichuk hammer Turco today, and get a penalty for it, I thought I’d right this article.

First of all, when goalies (like Turco) are playing the puck that far out, (in Turco’s casestop of the face-off circle near the boards) they should be allowed to be hit. Think about it, if it is a clean hit, then, why should it be a penalty. Only in the crease should the goalies be protected from hits.

Luongo uncertain about his future as a Canuck

The Vancouver Province is reporting that Luongo is unsure about this future in Vancouver. It is reported that “when asked whether being captain will influence his decision to sign an extension. I don’t think so. That’s not something that’s going to weigh on my decision,” Luongo said.”

Hey folks,

I am looking for a little help. I am looking for some people to write a bio for both John Tavaras and Victor Hedman.

Dallas a few moves away from contention

Dallas Stars are currently 12th in the Western Conference, with 74 points in 72 games. Everybody tagged them as Cup contenders in september. So what happened?

1rst, Dallas has been plagued with injuries this year. Brendan Morrow and Sergei Zubov, their 2 best players, were out for the year after only 15 games. Brad Richards has played only 60 games this year. Same for Toby Petersen, a versatile and dependable center. Joel Lundqvist has played only 40. Same for Jere Lehtinen, a Selke winner. Steve Ott has played only 60 too. A lot of times this year, half of their roster was filled with minor league players. It doesn’t help.

TIME FOR SWEEPING CHANGES

I can’t do it… I can’t take it anymore… It’s actually making me ill to watch the Habs play the past few months. Especially now, with only 11 games left, Montreal comes out flat against the Leafs at the Bell Centre on Saturday night?! To say the Canadiens are playing pathetic hockey would be a compliment these days…
