Nedved Making the Czech Team is Pretty Cool

Nedved Oilers

Can we for one-minute stop talking about the Canadian Olympic team selection for one moment; forget about who made it and who didn’t. Can we forget about the fact that Kunitz and Jay Bo made the team over Giroux, Boyle and St. Louis? Lets just stop thinking about Canada for one second and remember that one hilarious, and yet very cool thing has happened to another Olympic team. Continue reading

Is it time for another hockey blog? I think so, below I made a few comments about some of the teams in the NHL check and see if your team made the list and enjoy!

Phoenix Coyotes: Isn’t it nice that we don’t hear the word Phoenix anymore, or at all? Currently fifth in the Western conference the Coyotes are flying under the radar with a 14-4-3 record, that’s good enough for first place in the Eastern conference!

The twenty-four year old Swiss defenseman has possibly played his last game in Montreal on January 27th (2013). He had 10 minutes of ice-time with no shots or points recorded. Why does it seem like the end for him? It is pretty simple, in Montreal there are eight defensemen on the team and Weber is 8th on the depth chart behind Thomas Kaberle. Continue reading

“This blog was supposed to be my first blog not related to sports, but out of the blue the NHL has ended the lockout and I had said I would only write articles and pieces about Hockey once the lockout ended so here you go.”

Words many did not think they would hear until the summer time or even later. The NHL and NHLPA have agreed to a tentative deal and now the NHL can start the season.
