Under Review: Mar 8 — Mar 15

Thank. God. The Anointed One’s missing gear has been found, having been curiously “misplaced” post-Gold Medal game. Let the NHL grind resume anew with that crucial bit of business out of the way. Chelly’s Back In Town Well doggone, he’s done gone and done it. 48-year-old Chris Chelios — likely in the same age bracket…

Under Review: The 2010 Winter Olympics

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Britney Spears and Avril Lavigne are battling it out for #1 on the charts, that George Bush is still president and that Steve Yzerman is an integral part of a winning team. Well, you can scratch the first two points, because in the hockey world the third point carries…

Under Review: Feb 2—Feb 8

Last week was a tremendously newsworthy week for the NHL, capped by the tragic death in a car accident of Brendan Burke. Another huge trade and some head office changes round out the week that was in the world’s premier hockey league. Please Note: The Olympics start this Friday, so Under Review will not be…

Under Review: Armageddon Edition

In light of Sunday’s bombastic pair of trades between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Calgary Flames/Anaheim Ducks (and a decidedly light week on other ‘big issue’ NHL news), it struck me as necessary to dissect the re-landscaping nature of the deals pulled by Burkie and Co. The facts: on Sunday morning, Brian Burke announced…

Under Review: Jan 19—Jan 25

Peca Retires Picking up where Curtis Joseph left off, Michael Peca has retired from the NHL after 13 seasons in the league. It actually surprised me to find out that Peca has only been around for 13 years, as when I first started watching hockey 11 years ago, he was already a name to reckon…

Hey everybody; time for another week-in-recap from the seven days past in the NHL and the hockey world at large. Tsk. Tsk. Tsk. A producer at Pittsburgh television station FSN Pittsburgh has been suspended indefinitely for allegedly holding back a conclusive goal-scoring tape from NHL head offices during the dispute of the goal in question.…

Under Review: Jan 3—Jan 10

Under Review makes its triumphant return after several dormant weeks of holiday/hangover cheer! Hope everyone had a good holiday season, enjoyed the Winter Classic, reveled in the World Juniors (including one hell of a gold medal game), and otherwise kicked back for some iced times over the break. On to a couple pieces of news……

Under Review: Dec 14–Dec 23

It’s Christmas week this week! I decided to post this a couple days late to account for the fact that next week, I won’t be posting it at all (for one, the NHL is pretty quiet, and for two, I’m out of the city!). It was a pretty typical week in the NHL, with some…

Under Review: Dec 8—Dec 13

It was another relatively quiet week in the NHL as the season starts winding down towards Christmas, but some history’s about to be made — in more ways than one — if the newsworthy notes from last week are any indication. Brodeur Ties Sawchuck’s Record I’m not sure how many goaltenders of Brodeur’s talent and…

Under Review: Dec 1—Dec 7

To call last week a wacky and weird one would be an understatement. From fluke injuries, swinging sticks and a set of mega contracts, to the return of a sleeping giant, the week that was had a little bit of everything going on. Savard Signs for Life Marc Savard, the 32-year old renaissance man of…
