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 9, 2015.
Which teams have performed the worst at the draft since 2000? Lyle Richardson with an interesting post for BleacherReport.com.
The Los Angeles Kings have struggled recently, and John Hoven from MayorsManor.com wants to see some lineup changes.
Speaking of the Kings (segue! segue!), Jason Lewis at HockeyBuzz.com believes that the team needs to add some speed to remain competitive.
From TheUnionBlue.com, an outstanding look at how all of the organization’s prospects have been performing lately.
April Reimer is awesome, and she deserves some kudos for her new Tweet Sweet campaign. Cyber bullying is totally out of hand (as anyone involved with hockey Twitter knows), and it’s awesome to see someone with Reimer’s visibility and background speak out.
Peter Kneulman breaks down the winners and losers from the OHL’s trade deadline for OHLWriters.com.
The Buffalo Sabres went on a 13-game tear recently. Sadly, analytics show that it was more or less a mirage. From Jay Palansky at The Toronto Star.
Gord Miller went on TSN 690 recently and discussed what makes Montreal a unique hockey city. Some good insight into why the World Junior Championship attendance underwhelmed there.
We all know the Edmonton Oilers are in bad shape, but it’s staggering to see all the failure lined up in one place. That’s what Shane Sander did for TheHockeyWriters.com, and it’s ugly.
And now for your moment of Zen…
