Minnesota Wild 2017-18 Season Preview

I’ve always wondered why Minnesota named their team the “Wild” ever since they re-entered the league in 2000. Well, I looked it up. Apparently, it was chosen as an ode to Minnesota’s wildlife and outdoors reputation. Oh. Other names that … Continue reading

Los Angeles Kings 2017-18 Season Preview

This is my preview for the LA Kings. I don’t really have anything important to say in the introduction, so I’m just going to keep typing words until it looks like there are enough. Yup, that should do it. FORWARDS … Continue reading

On New Year’s Day 2014, I found myself standing among a crowd of 100,000 people watching a hockey game at a football stadium in Detroit. It was fun. I couldn’t feel my feet for five hours and I’d do it … Continue reading

Colorado Avalanche 2017-18 Season Preview

I don’t know why the Colorado Avalanche were a complete and utter dumpster fire last season, but they were. Perhaps it all started going down the mountain before the first snow fall. Head Coach, Patrick Roy, resigned a month before … Continue reading
