With the addition of a game to play with on Monday and Trivia Tuesday for December, there are now more chances to get points to win Hi Sticking than ever before! How it works For those new to the game, for every Pavel Bure Must Watch Game you get to pick 1 player for each team who you think will score the game winning goal. If you pick the game winning goal scorer, you get 2 points. If the guy you picked assists on the winner, you get 1 point.

Last time, we looked at the most exciting and entertaining teams to watch, now we’ll be looking at the most frustrating. There’s a big difference between being frustrating and just bad. The Arizona Coyotes generally get out-played in every way. That’s just expected now. The same goes for the Colorado Avalanche who are having… let’s call it a ‘difficult phase’. Their seasons may effectively be over, but there are other teams who should be better. Today we’ll be looking at those.

What makes a team exciting to watch? Is it the way the team controls the puck? Frustrating their opposition? Or is it the way a team passes and skates, running circles around the other team. The opposite can also be true, teams don’t have to on fire to be entertaining, a strong defensive performance or cat-like goalie can be just as much fun to watch. Here are three teams that I love watching, and a few honourable mentions. Pittsburgh Penguins So far this season, the Pens are the daddies of entertaining hockey.

The guys are back as Carl got to see Auston Matthews and the Toronto Maple Leafs in person and was slightly underwhelmed. The guys touch on a variety of topics including: – The Flames 8-3 win and if they’re starting to turn things around? – Switching the points system to use a 3 point game – Who will eventually be the Alex Ovechkin to Connor McDavid’s Sidney Crosby? – Shane Doan’s legacy – The Penguins goaltending situation – An expansion draft “Who will be protected?” rabbit hole Two new segments debut titled “How sad do the Avalanche Make Carl this week?” and “How did GaryRead More →

In our new series of Power Rankings we look at who is at the top and who is at the bottom, ranked entirely based on factors that are not skill. This week we start with The Worst Jersey. So, who will top the Power Rankings? In a large league like the NHL, it must be difficult for teams to come up with jerseys and logos that not only look appealing to the eye, but represent the team, it’s city and it’s fans. Couple that with the fact that many of these teams (almost a third) have come into the league in just the past 20Read More →
