The lion Chronicle: What is hockey for you?

I reckon the big draft party is over for this time. Well, of course there will be some trades during the season, but that’s a later thing to deal with. I have to admit though that my heart and inner jumps up and down when such things happen like Ilya Kovalchuk is braking his contract [...]

The lion Chronicle: Wish you a great midsummer

I am not sure if anyone of you my dear American and Canadian readers have experienced the Nordic light during the summers that we have over this side of the planet. It is just fantastic that there are such contrasts in the nature: From total winter darkness to total summer light. There is still some [...]


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 [...]

A Movember Tribute to Brandon Davidson

Welcome to Day 3 of Movember!!! Yesterday I said I was only going to write about people I know who have battled cancer. Today I changed my mind. I have a passion for hockey. There is a man we all need to keep in our thoughts during this month. Two days ago Oklahoma City Barons [...]

Perception vs Reality

Never Have Forgotten and Never Will

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 [...]
