How to be a hockey player

Never chirp another player's flow

A story about Chelios

04 November 2013 - 05:49 PM



This was an excellent read and I had no idea that his path to the NHL was what it was.  On a particular note, the article made a point to talk about Cheli's commitment to staying in shape, mentioning how he would sometimes ride his bike to the Joe from his place in Bloomfield Hills, and the stuff about his cardio workouts in a sauna.  Everyone makes a big deal about Howe lasting until 52 (which is definitely a huge deal, don't get me wrong), but I wonder whether in today's NHL, whether lasting until 48 is an equally impressive feat.  The four year gap is a big one, especially when you're talking about those years around 50.  But at the same time, it takes serious commitment to succeed after 40, especially on defense, and we've all heard stories about how Cheli's workout regime would make other, younger NHLers keel over and vomit.  Anyway, its a good read.

Osgood to fill in Larry Murphy's job

I never would have taken him as a sports analyst. He did really seem to enjoy interviewing Dmac during the last Cup run, though...

I really really love the concept, but i think the back plate clashes with the rest of the design.


2013 Detroit Red Wings Eulogy

02 June 2013 - 12:14 PM



Every post season Puck Daddy posts eulogies of playoff teams which are eliminated, written by fans of rival teams.  Sometimes they're really lame, sometimes they're amazing.  This year's Detroit Red Wings eulogy is amazing.  At least I think so.
