Calgary Flames

Jarome Iginla to Penguins

  UPDATE 2:00 AM ET: It’s pretty late here, so this  is definitely my last update of the night. I’d say you can disregard the main post below at this point.. I’m still shocked, and a little mad at what transpired tonight. I thought that the Boston deal was pretty bad, but this deal takes [...]


Hello there my beautiful Crash The Net groupies! I have decided to extend my Movember posts into the month of December or as my friend Tyler likes to call it “Decembeard”. Although the fundraising efforts of “Movember” are over as of tonight at midnight I feel there are still many stories that need to be [...]

Perception vs Reality

  Why is it that perception and reality rarely match up? I almost always perceive a situation as a more positive situation than the reality. For instance, I told myself there would be no lock out. I even went so far as to say the Chicago Cubs would win the World Series in 2013 if [...]

Never Have Forgotten and Never Will

11 years ago the perfect little bubble we all lived in was so rudely popped. Our lives were shaken to the core.  A little piece of us died with every plane crash that day. We lost friends, family, mentors, and heroes. Today we remember those who lost their lives in such a tragic way. Today [...]

Obligatory Lockout Post

This is my obligatory lockout post. I’ve stayed out of this long enough. Now I’m just flustered and have a lot of stuff to say. Everyone is freaking out about a season that may not happen. Note I said “may not” happen. It’s not september 15th yet. Anything can happen. The probability that there will [...]


Dear CBJ Chirpers,    If you’re going to take the time to chirp my team please take the time to be original and funny about it. Please do not waste my time with jokes my three year old cousin could come up with in her sleep. Saying things like “The Blue Jackets aren’t a NHL [...]

Quiet in NHL town <3

  Four days later and I still get teary thinking about the tragic events of Friday. Never in my life did I think I would cry over someone I’ve never met or had “real contact” with. This time was different for me. I even find myself choking up as I write this post. Jessica Redfield [...]


        Hello there fans of the NHL and Crash The Net! As you know the NHL is big on helping children lead a healthy lifestyle. How can we as adult fans support that when we ourselves are not healthy? With that in mind I’ve decided to start a new project called “NHL [...]


Here’s to the moms who traded in their high heeled shoes for little boy skates. To the moms who moved across the country to make dreams come true. Here’s to the moms who gave up girls nights to go to hockey games. To the moms who sent their babies across the sea. To the moms [...]

The Big Deal About TBIs

Since Crosby’s concussion last year many people have put their two cents in about the situation. Most of the time I hear people spouting off about how concussions aren’t bad and should be easy to come back from. Then fans started getting mad because players like Toews couldn’t come back on the fans time table. [...]
