Every day we’re going to do our absolute best to bring you the top NHL reads from around the web.
Sometimes we’ll pull from larger sites like NHL.com, but for the most part the goal will be to sort through dozens of posts from more mid-range sites so you can see some things that maybe wouldn’t have made it onto your radar normally. If you like what these sites do then give them a follow on Facebook or Twitter, and share the content that you love!
Hockey fans make up one of the best communities around, and in a lot of ways, we’re all in it together.
Without further delay… your top posts for February 23, 2015.
Calgary Flames rookie sensation Johnny Gaudreau has been one of the most talked about NHL players this season. His homecoming is set to be wild, writes George Johnson of The Calgary Herald.
Johnson has done some strong stuff recently, and his post on how the Flames have reignited the fan base in Calgary is a must-read as well. Also from The Calgary Herald.
Does the loss of David Krejci mean that the Boston Bruins won’t be able to make a push to the playoffs? Allan Muir weighs in for Sports Illustrated.
The Edmonton Oilers haven’t always handled their prospects particularly well. Darnell Nurse and Leon Draisaitl could be breaking that mold for the franchise though. Check out the post from Carl Maloney at TheHockeyWriters.com.
What could the Vancouver Canucks move at the NHL trade deadline? Thomas Drance breaks it down over at CanucksArmy.com.
Ed Snider is excited that Flyers fans finally have something to cheer about this season. Dave Isaac has the story for The Philadelphia Courier-Post.
James Mirtle shares his thoughts on NHL.com’s newest stats offering and ranks rising and falling trade deadline targets.
ThePlayersTribune.com is an interesting source of stories that come straight from the players themselves. Igor Larionov’s post about the death of the beautiful game is awesome.
If you live in the Glendale, AZ area and would like to introduce your kid(s) to hockey, DesertHockeyDevelopment.org has a free hockey clinic going on between now and the end of April.
And now for your moment of Zen…
