The Hater's Guide to the 2014 Offseason: Central Division [Part 1]

On the Forecheck (Dan Bradley) — So much hate, so little room. Hence this is divided into two posts. Humans (and Midwesterners) don't hate things that don't cause them at least a little bit of fear. So given that six of these seven teams have been good in our lifetime, there is plenty to hate. This division doesn't even contain the most unlikable teams in terms of the players themselves, it's mostly the fanbases. But since we...

On GMs and Agents: When it's personal, it's unproductive

SBN: Lighthouse Hockey (Dominik) — Player agents have many tasks. Deciding which teams their clients should consider based on whether the GM is nice shouldn't be one of them. The Washington Capitals had a very strange and disappointing 2013-14 season, marked by a shuffle of goaltenders and multiple players requesting trades.

Blues' "If Hockey Players Went Home" Homecoming Is Kind Of Awful

SBN: St. Louis Game Time (hildymac) — TSN's series on the homecoming of hockey players moves stateside, and Buffalo and Minnesota seem to be the best of the bunch. Hockey seems to have this weird obsession with LeBron James.Whether it's through terrible memes or complaining about cramps on Twitter, hockey folks talk about basketball's (current) best player significantly more than basketball fans talk about hockey's (current) best...

Thursday Links - Asking Stupid Questions

SBN: St. Louis Game Time (Donut King) — If you ask a stupid question, chances are that you'll get either a stupid answer or no answer at all. Bottom line? Don't ask stupid questions. Oh, and other links, including a special triple-video portion of the program. What am I talking about? Well, that's a stupid question since you know I'll answer it anyway.

Thoughts And Notes On Blues NBC Schedule

SBN: St. Louis Game Time (J-Mill) — The Blues always seem to disappoint on national television. If that proves true, the Blues are already screwed as many as 11 times. As both Hildy and the Hockey Gods like to remind us, the Blues don't seem to fare well with the national spot light on them. At least not in recent years, anyway. Nevertheless, NBC seems to like the Blues this year, especially when playing Those Fuckers Up...

The View From Section 317 (Yahoo! Sports - NHL - New York Islanders News) — You've got to feel for the San Jose Sharks. Not only did they see a good season wasted with yet another early-season exit, but this one may have been the most heart-breaking of all, with the team squandering a 3-0 lead to the eventual Staney Cup Champion LA Kings. Then, to make matters worse, they'll have to open the season playing those same LA Kings and standing around trying not to look as...
