NHL Confidential

Mike RichardsLake of the Woods, known more as a remote wildlife habitat straddling Minnesota and Canada, is also a summer favorite of Los Angeles Kings center Mike Richards. The former Flyers captain has become an avid wakeboarder/wakesurfer at the lake when he's not on the ice. "It’s starting to" catch on, Richards said. "It’s relaxing to get out there with all your friends and spend a day on the lake."

March Madness: Rioting, and what’s up with Nick Lidstrom?

 Nicklas Lidstrom

The Sweet Sixteen ended with a sweet-talking performance by Claude Giroux, yet another criminal act by a disgruntled Phil Kessel, and photographers snapping seven-hours worth of pictures for Patrick Kane and his lovely female fanatics.

Sixty-four teams down to eight, and the madness is just beginning …

March Madness: Giroux exposes Weber’s soft side

Phil Kessel

Day two of the Sweet 16 was delayed for several hours when Phil Kessel pulled the generator plug and melted the ice at our Phoenix facility. We know he’s still steaming from his back-and-forth argument with Ron Wilson, and that embarrassing loss to Nicklas Lidstrom – and that scoreless tournament as a top seed – but this is just absurd.

Unfortunately, local authorities could not find Kessel, whose elusiveness and running skills outweigh his defensive abilities on the ice.

Here’s to thinking he’ll be a thorn in our side as the tournament progresses. And we should be able to handle it, as long as he’s not throwing punches á la Milan Lucic.

Without further delay (looking over shoulders and eying generators), the Sweet 16 continues …

March Madness: The Sounds of Music

Day one of the All Puck Sweet 16 is here.

Thus far, we’ve seen a Ram truck plow Johan Franzen, an Austin Powers cart end a tournament for Alexander Ovechkin, and a net-eating slap shot from Shea Weber that scared the daylights out of Jason Pominville.

There’s been heavy trash-talk from Claude Giroux, heavy drinking from Patrick Kane, and a tournament director with heavy circles under his eyes courtesy of a fist-throwing rage delivered by Milan Lucic.

It’s been crazy. And it only gets better …

March Madness: Patrick Kane’s drinking does not hurt his game

Round two was delayed because Milan Lucic stormed our control room and attacked the tournament director. The Boston thug was clearly irate that his matchup against Zach Parise was not postponed.

Hey, it’s not our fault Lucic fought with his girlfriend, disobeyed police officers and earned a cement bed the night before the game. That’s his problem. Jail time or no jail time, the game against Parise had to start on its scheduled time, no matter the circumstance.

But we must say this: Lucic’s voice was heard, and so were his fists, as our director suffers from a nasty gash above his left eye, and, Ryan Miller-like whiplash.

Anyway, we’ll nurse our wounds as round two resumes …

More Madness: Martians Miss Pavel

Phil Kessel Pavel Datsyuk

The 64-skater tournament, battle of the fittest is reduced to 32 participants. There were tears from Ryan Kesler, trash-talking by Claude Giroux and a detailed background check that expelled Ryan O’Reilly from future tournaments.

St. Patrick’s Day brought about more oddities. The winners advance to the All-Puck Sweet 16.

The Madness continues.


Thursday’s opening day of the All-Puck Tournament featured hypnosis for Tyler Seguin, another handshake snub by Sidney Crosby, three disqualifications, and, Alexander Ovechkin driving an Austin Powers cart smack-dab into a wall.

It was flat-out obnoxious.

Today we continue with another 32 skaters in the brackets for Bobby Orr and Maurice ‘The Rocket’ Richard …

Introducing the March Madness of hockey.

tournament bracketThe All-Puck tournament is here again.

Whoa, wait … did we say “again”? Well, yes. It’s been ongoing since 1979, but we’ve never shared it with the public. It cannot hide anymore amid today’s social media age.

So here it is: Sixty-four skaters battling in a game of posts. One-on-one competition, no goalie, check-up at the blue line, whoever hits the most posts through three 10-minute periods is determined the winner. It’s the fairest way to judge a one-on-one competition.
