Why I want to see a Modern Day Dynasty NHL Team

WOAH WOAH WOAH, put down the pitchforks and torches! I know I may have struck a nerve (I’m looking at you, San Jose Sharks fans), but hear me out. In the 97 years that the NHL has been around, there have been many legendary teams. However only few get the elusive status of “Dynasty Team”.

Review of the NHL’s New Camera Angles

As I have stated in one of my previous articles, there are quite a few changes coming to how we, the fans, consume the product that is the NHL. Of those changes, the most noticeable is the five new camera angles. When watching on your TV, this opens up so many possibilities for the broadcasters to be able to give you so much more depth into the action that happens in the game. However when using the online based services, NHL GameCenter Live and Rogers GameCentre Live, you are given access to these angles at any moment that you want. Feel like creeping Carey Price all game? Go ahead. Want conclusive evidence that the ref is an idiot? Why not. Now that we have gotten through 34 games of hockey, I feel like it’s a good time to review these new camera angles.

The Away Game: Hockey Edumacation

By:
featured image 4

The transition from minor hockey to beer league hockey was a very interesting state of events in my hockey career. The games weren’t as intense, there isn’t a coach breathing down your neck anymore, and you only had the wrath of your teammates to face if you messed up. Even though my dreams of becoming an NHLer died a long time ago, I am always looking to improve my game. I’ve looked at videos online and I have spent hours shooting pucks at the net in my backyard; however the best way to learn is to be told by others what you are doing wrong. I have attached a preview of Al Corey’s article from the blog “The Ancient Netminder” that talks about his experiences of educating and learning from the game.

Why are Canadians so crazy about hockey?

By:
DC_Hockey_Reax01-930x600

To the non-Canadians reading this, you may wonder if the hockey stereotypes about Canadians are true. “Canadians can’t be THAT crazy about hockey.” I’m sorry (woo stereotypes), but shut your mouth. We are beyond ravenous for people smashing into other people, beating the stuffing out of each other, and shooting a vulcanized piece of rubber in the middle of three red posts. Canadians have developed a love for this game to the point where we have accepted it as a national icon. Obviously I can’t speak for a whole nation, but I guarantee the numbers showing our passion for our national pastime are ridiculous.
