Hockey Is For Everyone (Not Really)

I’m a hockey fan. I watch games all the time. I talk about the sport to the point where I sometimes annoy my co-workers. I live and breathe about this game. I’m also a woman. For a lot of people, that doesn’t matter. The NHL seems to think so, as February is Hockey Is For…

“I’ve Shuffled The Lines…” – Change Management In Games

I’ve seen this floating around tumblr for a while now, and every time it gets back around, it always gives me a good laugh because every fan has watched their team and groaned when they’ve heard that the lines got shuffled a bit. The Jets fanbase tends to rail on Maurice a lot for using the…

JNGD 1 / Instant Recap: Things Happened, None Good

Equipment violations are now the surprise story when it comes to penalties. I thought it was going to be faceoff violations, but Tim Peel struck down and decided that visors, tape, and jerseys needed to be in tip top shape. It made for an interesting storyline for sure.


Let’s not focus on the lines quite yet

WWYDW: I want to be the very best…

“There’s no doubt in my mind. In this sport, you can’t say, ‘Oh, you know, that was great. I just hope to stay amongst them.’ I’m pushing to be better than Connor, better than Sid.” Those are some bold words from Scheifele, but words that fans should be happy to hear.
