Homer’s Do’s and Doh’s: Leino Trade v. Giroux Extension and Gagne Trade v. Shelley Signing

Paul Holmgren became the interim General Manager of the Philadelphia Flyers on October 22, 2006. That interim title was removed only weeks later on November 11. Holmgren was able to take a team that finished last in the National Hockey League, and rebuild it to make a deep run all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals the very next season.

Hockey Hilarity: Nasty Bizness from the Motherland

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players and media personnel. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more! This week, we’re a little late, but honestly it’s better off. One of the best things about hockey is the violence. I think just about anyone and everyone would agree. It’s fun to watch fights and some guys are known for fighting. One guy who knows in particular is everyone’s favorite fourth-liner Paul Bissonette.
