Craig MacTavish on TSN. Does that sentence get you all excited? As the season began, were you ready to absorb Craig’s pearls of wisdom? Sure hope you didn’t wait around, holding your breath. Those pearls are not coming. You know why? Because Craig still wants to coach in the NHL. Hey, TSN, grab a brain and stop hiring guys who still want to be involved in the nuts-and-bolts of the league. They’ve got nothing to add to anything! Ever! (more…)

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin

Washington Capitals’ superstar Alex Ovechkin needs to clamp his yap shut. Clamp it real tight because he’s playing a very dangerous playoff game. Dangerous. Ovechkin has decided that now would be a good time to deride Montreal netminder Jaroslav Halak’s play. This is a poorly thought out decision on old Ovie’s part. Come to think of it, those seem to be the only kind he makes. (more…)
