When I’m not crying about Frank Corrado, I write here once per week.
Connor McDavid hasn’t scored for a while now but his three-assist performance against the Penguins was a great statement despite the loss.
The Oilers started really hot and now they’ve dipped a wee bit. If McDavid keeps doing stuff like this, they’ll be just fine.

CONTENDERS or PRETENDERS?
This was my most recent clip on Hockey Central for Sportsnet. Basically, everybody loves to point out the obvious warning signs in the Montreal Canadiens’ hot start. How about the New York Rangers?
Speaking of the Rangers, the Canucks just beat them!
You gotta believe part of the Rangers’ hot start partly lies in all of the home games they’ve played so far. Well, the Canucks are about to play four straight at home; one of which is a rematch with the Rangers. If they’re going to get back into any kind of playoff picture, this would be a good opportunity.
Slide back into the playoff picture like:
Just my two cents: The Leafs just put Seth Griffith on waivers. The Canucks should be all over that. Avenge Frank Corrado!
In prospect news, Kerby Rychel finally scored his first pair of goals of the season in the AHL. Heading into the Marlies’ game against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, Rychel had no goals on 24 shots. You’ve got to think the goals will start going in.
Also, #FreeFrankCorrado. Click here to read my rant there. Absolutely ridiculous at this point.
Don’t take my word for it. Here’s Elliotte Friedman.
I’m sure you’ve seen Ferland’s hit on Tyler Seguin by now but listen to this clip. It’s hilarious.
Think they might be pro-Stars, eh?
“OH HE LANDED TWO BIG RIGHTS… from a… SEATED POSITION!” Buster Douglas defeating Mike Tyson wasn’t called with the same zeal as this.
Patrik Laine through his first 15 NHL games: 11 goals, 5 assists, 16 points.
Alex Ovechkin through his first 15 NHL games: 12 goals, 5 assists, 17 points.
Pretty damn close.
Sometimes you need a break. This call-up could be it for Anthony Mantha.
The 22-year-old has 8 goals and 2 assists for 10 points in 10 AHL games so far this season. If he wants to stick with the big club for a bit, or at least leave a lasting impression, he has to bring that to the Red Wings right now.
