Stoney Point - Apr. 13, 2014: It is that time of year again. It is time for the NHL Playoffs, where 16 teams compete for the Stanley Cup, poolies across the globe try to win some dough and the Toronto Maple Leafs work on their golf game. It is a tough time of year for us Leaf fans. When my Dad was alive, he enjoyed running a playoff pool each season. Since his passing in 2008, his tradition has continued and we are ready to launch the 18th Annual Hometown Hockey Playoff Pool. FULL STORY

Windsor - Mar. 24, 2014: The Toronto Maple Leafs fell to the New Jersey Devils in Sunday night action last night. The 3-2 loss was the fifth straight for the club, leaving fans with a sour feeling heading into the final stretch of the season. With less than ten games remaining, the Leafs are in need of a serious morale boost if they hope to have a place in the 2013/14 postseason. FULL STORY

Stoney Point - Mar. 22, 2014: The Detroit Red Wings are in tough to keep their streak alive. If the playoffs started this morning Mike Babcock’s team would have been on the outside looking in for the first time since the 1989-90 season. At the time of this writing, they are sitting in the second wild card spot. To put into perspective how long the streak has been, Ronald Reagan and George Bush Sr. were the American Presidents during that season, Brian Mulroney was the Canadian Prime Minister and Sergei Makarov was the NHL Rookie of the Year.

Edmonton - Feb. 15, 2014: As great as the Winter Olympics are, countries who live and breathe the game of hockey view Men’s Hockey as “THE” event. With that said, wouldn't it be nice to see the likes of Team Canada, the Czech Republic, Finland and Sweden in more head-to-head battles like this morning's tilt between the USA and Russia? The hockey was fantastic and it was nothing more than a preliminary round game. FULL STORY

Edmonton - Jan. 31, 2014: Another day and another deal involving the Edmonton Oilers and a player who had previously been coached by Dallas Eakins during his time as the Toronto Marlies bench boss. First came the free agent signings of Will Acton and Ryan Hamilton, then the trade for goaltender Ben Scrivens and today we saw the arrival of Toronto Maple Leafs blueliner Mark Fraser in exchange for the rights to Teemu Hartikainen and minor leaguer Cameron Abney.

Detroit - Jan. 5, 2014: When I was a kid my friends and I played ice hockey outside. For hours. In the cold and snow. We were soaked to the skin and freezing, but we didn’t care. It was hockey. And we loved playing it. We played outside because we didn’t know anything different. The memories of those outdoor rink days came flooding back (no pun intended) to me at Comerica Park last week during the Hockeytown Winter Festival. FULL STORY

Stoney Point - Jan. 1, 2014: The Toronto Maple Leafs recently signed captain Dion Phaneuf to a seven year, $49 million deal and there are many that think General Manager Dave Nonis made a mistake. This deal works out to a cap hit of $7.0 million per year, only marginally larger than his current $6.5 annual impact. I, for one, believe this is a good deal for the Buds. FULL STORY

Buffalo - Dec. 31, 2013: This is an update version of a post I originally ran prior to the Rangers vs. Flyers Winter Classic in 2012. While the unfortunate cancellation of last year’s Classic caused us to wait on any sort of new equipment for the goalies involved, it appears that each goalie who will be appearing in the 2014 Winter Classic will have some sort of special gear for the event.

Edmonton - Nov. 27, 2013: There is no questioning what is currently the biggest issue with the Edmonton Oilers. Above all else, their lack of a legitimate top pairing NHL defenceman is painfully obvious. While fans would love to see Craig MacTavish go out and acquire the likes of a Shea Weber or PK Subban, the rookie GM may have to settle for targeting the likes of Toronto Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf.
