  8. A Brief History of the 2-3-2 Playoff Format and Why It Should Be Discontinued

    Jun 25, 2012, 11:59 AM EDT

    Given how I aim to grab your attention, I suppose this argument, or at least its lede, is about five years too late. But, seeing as how the issue still exists, has not been remedied, likely will not be remedied, and just reared its head again, consider the following…

    Jun 21, 2012, 10:54 AM EDT

    It doesn’t take much for one of these long-standing feuds to get reignited. In fact, getting waxed 0-6 in a regular season and losing a Winter Classic at home just might do the trick.

  13. NHL Awards Tonight: Does Giroux Have the Fan Support to Edge a Finnish Goalie from Tennessee?

    Jun 20, 2012, 3:47 PM EDT

    As cool as it is to potentially have a Flyer on the cover — he’d be only the second on an EA NHL game and the first since Eric Lindros in 1999 — I can’t be the only one surprised Pekka Rinne is still in this thing, right?

  17. Photo: Jeff Carter Hoists Cup in Vegas Nightclub

    Jun 19, 2012, 10:27 AM EDT

    Apparently cocktail waitresses are not allowed to dance on a table with Lord Stanley’s Cup, though probably would be allowed to dance on a table with Lord Stanley himself. That guy…

  18. Report: Jaromir Jagr Will Test the Market

    Jun 18, 2012, 2:26 PM EDT

    It seemed fair to say Jagr was glad he chose Philadelphia when he returned to the NHL following a three year absence. Thing is, he might not want to choose Philly again.

  19. Jim Thome Proud to Set HR Milestone with Phillies; Now What?

    Jun 18, 2012, 12:21 PM EDT

  23. Congratulations Simon Gagne

    Jun 12, 2012, 12:49 PM EDT

    Simon Gagne was a 20-year-old kid who skated on All-Star line with Brett Hull and, his idol, Mario Lemeuix when I was an even younger kid. And now, he’s 32, holding his own child, a hockey prodigy no doubt, and probably looking at the end of his career sooner rather than later given what we’re finding out about head injuries and the fact that he doesn’t have to chase that trophy anymore.
