Future Free Agents: Alexander Radulov

The narrative surrounding Alexander Radulov has completely flipped in the past year. When he was inked by the Montreal Canadiens to a one-year, $5.75 million deal on the first day of free agency last summer, not long after the team had pulled off a massively polarizing swap of P.K. Subban for Shea Weber, it was met…

Future Free Agents: Ryan Miller

When the Vancouver Canucks signed Ryan Miller back in July 2014, it was surely a move that was expected to make the club competitive. But things didn’t work out that way.

Michael Del Zotto? In New York, he was known as DelZaster. After last season, his second year in Philadelphia, it seemed he had resurrected his career and was going to be a key piece of the Flyers blue line moving forward. But thanks to a poor season that began with a long term injured reserve…

WWYDW: Responding to a Whopping

That was an ugly loss. Really ugly. I don’t have to walk you through it, because you already know. In the midst of a playoff race, the Leafs came out completely flat against the Florida Panthers and got hammered 7-2. I won’t say it was a ‘must win game’ because it wasn’t, but it was…
