Kneel Before Saad

When Saad was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets after the 2015 Blackhawks Stanley Cup win, I was confused, angry, and sad all at the same time. Well now Saad is back where he belongs in Chicago, and he’s come back in a huge way. Saad brings back so many things that were either lackluster in the 2016 and 2017 playoffs, or he brings back things that his counterpart; Artemi Panarin, never had. The things that were lackluster that Saad brings back to me are speed, size, and scoring. Panarin had a hard time being effective in the two...

Marc-Andre Fleury Injured

Marc-Andre Fleury has suffered yet another unfortunate concussion in a 6-3 loss against the Detroit Red Wings. It was the first loss for the Vegas Golden Knights as well. Fleury was injured when Red Wing forward Anthony Mantha’s knee hit Fleury in the head. Despite being hit in the head, the NHL’s concussion spotters didn’t deem the injury bad enough to remove Fleury from the game. I hope for the Knights sake, and more importantly Fleury’s, that him staying in didn’t somehow worsen the concussion. It’s especially odd that Fleury wasn’t taken out considering this is not the first...

What Hossa’s Loss Means To Me

As we know, Marian Hossa will not play in the upcoming NHL season due to an extremely rare allergic reaction to his gear. Apparently this is something he has been dealing with for years and it has been something that has flown under our radars as fans. His loss on the ice is huge, as he had a resurgence to his career in terms of goals and assists, an of course his two way play is one of the best in the league. He’ll be missed off the ice too, he’s a genuinely great person. I speak from personal...

Why Has No One Signed Jagr?

Just wanted to write a quick bit about Jaromir Jagr and why he hasn’t been signed yet for next NHL’s season. I really can’t figure out why no one has signed him yet. Yes, I understand he’s the oldest player in the NHL at 45 years old. However, the man’s stats have not faded that much. This past season, Jagr played in all 82 games and scored 46 points, that’s not bad at all. The season before that, Jagr had 66 points in 79 games. The man clearly is still extremely useful on the scoresheet. To me though, what’s...

Stanley Cup Preview

Well folks its finally here. Starting on Monday May 29th, the Cup finals will be coming to us live from Pittsburgh. The Pens are 4 wins away from repeating and becoming the first team to do so since the Red Wings of 1997 and 1998. One the other side, the Preds have been riding a wave of confidence and have defeated the Hawks (in spectacular fashion 4-0), the Blues (4-2), and the Ducks (4-2). This is setting up to be a potentially fast, skilled, and highlight reel filled cup final which I personally, am excited for. Let’s take a...
