Underrated signing : Yanic Perreault

Slipping through the cracks of the so-called “new NHL,” Yanic Perreault was passed over by many teams for his lack of speed, and I say thank you to those teams.

Boom or Bust with Small Men

By Darryl Dobbs

Do you ever see any small men have a successful career spent entirely on the fourth line as a grinder? Of course not. Even Stu Barnes had his offensive years where he was an upper-tier pool pick! The small hockey player does not get a second look unless he forces scouts to take a second look. His defensive checking abilities aren’t what grabs the attention. It’s his dazzling moves, his brilliant hockey sense, and his off-the-charts offensive numbers. Even then, it doesn’t guarantee a shot at the big time.

Could Joe Thornton Win The Hart This Season?

I have been a close follower of the San Jose Sharks in season 2005-2006, a campaign many would call ‘A Tale of Two Seasons.’ The monumental trade that saw Joe Thornton arrive in San Jose has certainly changed the fortunes of the Sharks, who after 7 games with the big number 19, only lost for the first time yesterday in a close match to the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim.

Joe Thornton has brought so much to the Sharks, and whilst the team is greatly benefiting from having him on board, there’s no doubt that he too, is faring better after a change of scenery from his former pressure-cooker situation in Boston.
