With the playoffs nearing, the guys take a spin around the playoff picture. Are the Flames primed for an upset? Can Columbus go for a deep run? Or will they miss the playoffs entirely? It’s time to make up for lost time and put TWO teams in the Elimination Station. Both the Buffalo Sabres and Vancouver Canucks have outperformed expectations this year, but where do they go from here? Can the Canucks ride the Elias Pettersson wave into next season, while fellow rookie Rasmus Dahlin continues to improve in Buffalo? Welcome to the Elimination Station! A Hi Sticking winner is crowned and the Pavel Bure MustRead More →

Carl and Nick are back and have an update on their bet, including a special event the last week of March! Brad Marchand is never shy from sticking his nose where it shouldn’t be and this week was no exception, with him sharing his thoughts on, of all things, the Mitch Marner contract situation. What does Bradley have to say about the situation? Jakub Voracek and Jack Eichel were both suspended this week. Were the Philadelphia Flyer and Buffalo Sabre deserving of their punishments? Is the Department of Player Safety consistent? The playoff format was confirmed to not be changing following the GM meetings. ButRead More →

The 2019 Super Bowl attracted about 98 millions viewers, the lowest amount for some time, but it’s still about 92 million more than game five of the Stanley Cup final between the Capitals and Golden Knights drew in. More people watch the finale of The Voice, than the Stanley Cup finals. The NFL Pro Bowl, an entirely meaningless game, gets better numbers than the game which decides which team will lift Lord Stanley’s cup.

Two years ago the Ottawa Senators were a goal away from the Stanley Cup Final. Today they saw the last of their top three scores, Mark Stone, the man who should’ve been their next captain, a cornerstone of the franchise for years to come, shipped off to Vegas ahead of the NHL Trade Deadline. This, just days after both Matt Duchene and Ryan Dzingel were unceremoniously jettisoned to Columbus. A once proud organisation reduced to selling off valuable parts like smoke damaged furniture, presumably the result of the tire fire they’ve become.
