Hockey Hilarity: u good!!

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! Happy Friday everybody! It’s unfortunate that the National Hockey League is still in full-on lockout-mode, with no plans to meet, and an apparent moratorium on negotiations has been suggested or put into effect or whatever. Seriously I don’t even care anymore, just get the game back on the ice, alright? Anyway, I guess without the lockout, what you’re about to see wouldn’t have happened. It’s basically just a bunch of tweets from Scott Hartnell, which …

Bruise or Bust – Filling out the Forwards

When cross-referencing the Flyers official roster on their website with Capgeek’s breakdown it looks like there are six forwards that will be vying for the final 2 spots within the 12-man forward committee. So who would you like to see filling out the bottom of the bench to provide the occasional spark for your team (assuming there is a season)? Let’s take a look at some of the candidates. The list (by alphabetical short name order – how weird is that?): Ben Holmstrom, Tom Sestito, Zac Rinaldo, Eric Wellwood, Jody Shelley, Harry Zolnierczyk Ben Holmstrom: 7 NHL GP (over 2 …

Hockey Hilarity: Ginger… Snap!

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! Claude Giroux’s breakout season this year was rewarded by an overwhelming show of fan support as he was voted to be the cover athlete for EA Sports’ NHL ’13. It’s a pretty cool thing and cements the Hearst, Ontario native as one of the top young stars in the league. But what all that talent and all those votes can’t change is a single, undeniable truth: Claude Giroux is a ginger. It’s …

Hockey Hilarity: Why?

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! In an age where just about everything and anything is taken out of context or an innuendo is even remotely implied, word choice has become all too important. With all of the CBA talk this week, it seemed appropriately inappropriate that this feature look at a real bad misstep by our northern neighbors’ hockey news headquarters: TSN. Guess the NHL really is shooting for the moon with this year’s Bridgestone Winter Classic. …

Ron Genest: Hockey Art With Heart

Ron Genest may not be a household name. You won’t see his artwork hanging in museums, and you won’t find it for sale in art galleries. But Genest’s work doesn’t need accolades or fanfare to be recognized as great, because his pieces have one thing that not every piece of art does – they’ve got heart. Genest grew up in Massena, New York, the breeding grounds of minor hockey back when he was younger. Hockey was a way of life in Massena, a town close to the border with Canada and the province of Ontario, and with that region’s cold …
