Ottawa - Dec. 7, 2014: I find it astounding that there appears to be a near complete absence of social scientific analysis in contemporary hockey analytics. Social sciences are concerned with both individual human traits and characteristics (psychology) and larger group dynamics, structure, and behavior (sociology). The sport of hockey is organized and played by individuals who have motivations and drives. Those players are grouped into teams, which are complex subcultures that have sets of important informal rules and practices. FULL STORY

Stoney Point - Nov. 24, 2014: There has been plenty of speculation that Right Winger Daniel Alfredsson may announce his retirement tonight in Detroit as the Red Wings play host to the Ottawa Senators. There is no question that Alfie is the best ever to wear a Senators jersey and I believe that the team needs to step up and allow him to retire as a Sen. FULL STORY
