Saga Over: Duchene to Sens, Turris to Preds

It had been apparent for a long time: the Colorado Avalanche and center Matt Duchene needed to part ways. General manager and Avalanche legend Joe Sakic held onto Duchene past the 2017 NHL Draft in Chicago after the team had a dismal 2016-17 campaign, finishing with a league-worst 48 points. It created an awkward beginning to training camp and start of the 2017-18 season, where Duchene reported to training camp and said he basically was only there for his teammates. But his presence probably made it awkward for them, as well. Shortly into this season, the saga has finally...

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...
