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 January 15, 2015.
We’re with Mike Majeski of FanSided.com on this one: knock it off with the “empty seat” photos.
The Toronto Maple Leafs are playing better defensively since Randy Carlyle was fired, but that hasn’t translated into wins. According to Michael Traikos of The National Post, that has flustered the Leafs a bit.
Can the Minnesota Wild turn their season around by downing the Buffalo Sabres? Bill Hope from BuffaloHockeyBeat.com has an interesting take.
From Andrew Allsman at KMOV.com: Martin Brodeur has taken a week off from the St. Louis Blues to contemplate his future in the sport.
Can Tomas Hertl on the fourth line ignite some offense for the San Jose Sharks? Andrew Bensch weighs in for TheHockeyWriters.com.
A few great fantasy hockey posts. Evan Sporer broke down how each goalie performs against various qualities of competition.
Should you jump on the David Pastrnak bandwagon from a fantasy hockey perspective? An excellent take from Dobber.
Jaroslav Halak as been named to the All-Star game to replace Jimmy Howard. Marc-Andre Fleury is in for Pekka Rinne.
Sean McIndoe looks at the most ridiculous All-Star game participants in NHL history for Grandland.com.
And now for your moment of Zen…
And yes, @Razor5Hole predictably has the best answer in there. "Will the Leafs make playoffs?" "I couldn't POSSIBLY care less."
