Ramblings: Up and Comers (June 3rd)

By |2020-06-04T19:42:09-04:00June 2nd, 2020|Hockey Rambling|

Before we get going, I'll just take a moment to discuss what's happening in the United States. The protests happening throughout that country and the similar showings of support in other places around the globe are a long time in the making. I am a privileged, white male who has never known such fear or [...]

The big news in the world of hockey is the Return to Play directives have been decided. And along with them, the draft lottery and time of the draft.

Regular update that gives absolutely no indication of when the draft will occur or what the NHL playoffs may look like this summer: NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly says he's hopeful today's Canada-U.S. border announcement "will not materially affect the resumption of play timelines we are currently contemplating." — Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) May 19, 2020 I'm [...]

Ramblings: Re-Drafting 2003, The Jets PP, Byfield vs Stützle & Time to Steal Kyle Connor (April 22nd)

By |2020-04-22T18:07:25-04:00April 21st, 2020|Hockey Rambling|

Some unsurprising news out of the WHL on Tuesday saw presumptive first-overall pick, and the first-ever Western League exceptional status player, Connor Bedard signed with the Regina Pats. The WHL Draft officially kicks off on Wednesday, but the Pats aren't wasting any time locking up the future superstar. I've spoken about Bedard in a previous [...]

Ramblings: Re-Drafting 2017, Cirelli, Hoglander, Heiskanen, and Malkin (April 15)

By |2020-04-19T16:49:01-04:00April 14th, 2020|Hockey Rambling|

The NHL has extended its Lockdown phase another two weeks. That’ll take us until the end of April. This remains unsurprising and will continue to occur as the league will not want to cancel the season until they absolutely must. It’s strange to see the different possibilities being heralded by different sports and those in [...]

Ramblings: Searching for (More) 50-Goal Scorers, Re-drafting 2008, Twitter Madness, Ellis, & Cave (April 8)

By |2020-04-11T00:05:51-04:00April 7th, 2020|Hockey Rambling|

Over in the Canucks Twitter universe, there’s a March Madness-style bracket going on that pits a variety of who’s who from the Vancouver media, former-pros, and fan sphere. I was happy with a run to the Sweet Sixteen before bowing out to The Athletic's, Wyatt Arndt, aka The Stanchion. Now, here’s where it gets fun. [...]

The NHL has extended the teams' self-quarantine until April 15. The league is breaking off section in two-week chunks. And with the way the US is trending, we’ll be seeing that period extended a few more times.   No surprise the NHL has again pushed back the period of self-quarantine to April 15. Bill Daly [...]
