Flames Make Right Choice Starting Talbot in Net

Mark Jankowski’s Odd Path to the NHL
Looking back, the 2012 NHL Entry Draft was one of the weaker draft classes of all-time, with many high picks not turning out like they were expected.

Theo Fleury Paved the Way for Johnny Gaudreau
Not many years ago, the NHL was a league you needed to have size in order to play. It was very rare you’d see players below the six-foot mark. A big part of this was because bigger, slower defencemen were able to get away with all sorts of infractions such as hooking, holding, and slashing […]
