Stanley Cup Playoffs

The first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs is often the most thrilling time in the sport. Upsets are plentiful and the action is intense. The NHL playoffs might just be the best playoffs in all of sport and the first round is a big reason why. Here are the 10 best first round matchups in NHL history.

1982: Los Angeles vs. Edmonton

The 1981-82 season was dominated by The Great One. Wayne Gretzky had a storybook season for the Edmonton Oilers, shattering the NHL records for goals, (92) assists, (120) and points (212) in a season. Gretzky’s incredible performance propelled the Oilers to first place in the Smythe Division, and were considered heavy favourites in their first round series against the Los Angeles Kings. This should have been a mismatch. The Kings finished a whopping 48 points behind the Oilers in the standings. Instead, it turned out to be…

…And Now For a Bracket Completely Different…College Hockey!

Dubsism

john cleese completely different bracket

Many people don’t realize it, but the NCAA College Hockey Tournament is timed exactly to give you, the bracket loving public, another shot to fill out a bracket, albeit a completely different one.  What you know about college hockey matters little; most of you who fill out brackets for basketball don’t know shit about that either.  What you do need to know is that college hockey is chock full of awesome rivalries. For example, the opening round game in the West region features North Dakota and Wisconsin, two schools who have a hatred of each other all the way back to the old days of the WCHA.  Now that the WCHA saw most of its big school depart for the NCHC or the newly-formed Big Ten (which balances out the football conference which will open next season with 14 teams by only having six) version, this tournament…

Oilers Jersey On Ice

There was a time when the Battle of Alberta was the best rivalry in hockey and one of the best rivalries in all of sport. Last Saturday, the rivalry took an odd turn when the Calgary Flames thrashed the Edmonton Oilers 8-1 in front of a hostile crowd at the Rexall Centre. The loss cemented the fact that the Oilers will miss the playoffs for an eighth consecutive season.

How hostile was it? A fan had enough and decided to throw his jersey on the ice. Oilers goalie Ben Scrivens angrily scooped up the crumpled sweater with his goal stick, and flung back into the crowd. After the game, Scrivens went on a rant that had the media salivating.

Why the Seattle City Council’s Reported Stance on the “Hockey First” Option is a Mistake

Seattle City Councilmen Tim Burgess has stated that he does not believe that the Memorandum of Understanding — between Chris Hansen and the City — will be renegotiated to allow for a NHL first option. This statement comes on the heels of some optimistic reports that the  National Hockey League was looking at expanding to Seattle. Now, any hope of expansion appears to be dead in the water.

In his response to SportsPressNW, Burgess says that the Council is unlikely to renegotiate the MOU because they feel that the financial risk is to high with a hockey first option. He says that it: “…it was quite clear that the financial risk to the city increased dramatically with the NHL-first scenario” during the initial MOU negotiations; it is also said in that article that Hansen is a basketball guy, and is primarily focused on bringing back the Sonics.
