Conferences and Divisions

By | Dec 15, 2011

I don’t mind the new alignment the NHL has adapted for next year. Really, I don’t. I understand perfectly that Detroit and Columbus resented having to play their division games against teams an entire hour behind them in time zones and most of their other games against teams two or three hours behind them in…

As I pointed out in my last post, this probably doesn’t mean all that much to the average sports fan. It’s only when actual regular-season games start getting…

It’s only the preseason

By | Sep 22, 2011

The NHL preseason started Monday night. There are probably less than a hundred people on this campus who even care about this and I might not even be one of them, depending on what you mean by the word “care.” I mean as a fan of the Buffalo Sabres and the NHL, I’m certainly excited…

While we were away

Summer is one of those times of the year where it can seem like there isn’t an awful lot going on in sports, at least compared to other seasons. The NFL season is already long over and by Independence Day, so are the the NBA and NHL seasons. MLB is a couple months away from…
