Giroux Gets the G, er… C.

I’m swamped today, but there’s always time for this! Claude Giroux named Captain of the Flyers Of course, you know that already [Press Release].  Personally I would have gone with Briere (shocking).  Can our Flyer fan friends weigh on Claude’s locker room leadership type?  It’s certainly good marketing sense to make your highest profile player […]

Hit Me Like A Mack Truck

…if a Mack truck wore a NY Rangers sweater. Here I was, just minding my own, thinking I was doing all well with the return of hockey.  I was just going to ease right back into it and get my bearings…then BAM…Rick Nash. Damn you, Rick Nash.  Damn you and your LLBean-boyfriend good looks and […]

Foxy Friday: Derek Sanderson

This week’s Foxy Friday is a bit of an unconventional choice but just hear us out. Back in the 1970s and the time of the Big Bad Bruins, Derek Sanderson was the definition of “Like a Boss.” He drove a Rolls Royce, wore mink coats, and flashed diamonds.  He won the Calder Trophy in 1968 and two […]

Landeskog for President

Oh wait… He was born in Sweden. Since that won’t work, I guess we’ll just have to settle for “Captain.”  This is my Captain face. Today, the Avalanche made history by making the 19-year-old the youngest captain in NHL history. Take that, Sidney Crosby. Landeskog is 19 year, 286 days old – 11 days younger […]

Foxy Friday: Ryan Suter

To say that Ryan Suter is having a good week would be an understatement. Wednesday was America’s birthday.  Ryan being a member of Team USA and proud American, we’re pretty sure he threw a pretty raging bbq. Sparklers. Potato Salad.  Inflatable Pool Beer Pong.  The whole nine yards. Then on the same day, he signed […]

Selke Smooth

While the NHL Awards are far from and probably never will be perfect, there are a few things that they get right. Take last night for instance. Last night, Patrice Bergeron FINALLY won the Frank J. Selke Trophy. All is right in the hockey universe. If you read this blog, or follow our twitter, or […]

Los Angeles Kings – Stanley Cup Champs

Remember yesterday when I said that the Kings needed to play like a hockey Borg to win the Stanley Cup… Well, folks.  They did just that. New Jersey Devils resistance was utterly futile. Last night, the Kings went into full-on beast mode and beat the New Jersey Devils 6-1 to clinch the first Stanley Cup […]

Kings Of The Road

If any of you have watched NBC’s Post Game wrap-up, then you know Other-Brother-Darryl needs to take that sh*t on the road! Because having handled talent and sat through countless hours of interviews and seen press chewed up and spat out by the best, Other-Brother-Darryl ranks right up there only he is god damn funny […]

Stanley Cup Finals Beard Appreciation Post

At 8pm EST tonight, the puck will drop on THE greatest sports champion series in the world. Obviously, we’re slightly biased because we pretty much eat, sleep, and breathe hockey since we’ve started this blog.  I mean, not like we didn’t follow hockey closely before WUYS but we’ve progressed to a Beautiful-Mind-writing-on-the-window level of crazy.  But […]

Our Post on Puck Daddy – SCF Preview: Best Beards

If you go seven months without seeing an acquaintance, you might greet them with, “Wow, you look so….” The word the Devils and Kings need here is hairy. These teams last met in October and it’s a wonder if they’d recognize each other now without the numbers on their backs. Each team has been presented with […]

Foxy Friday: Dustin Penner

Foxiness can come in many ways, shapes, and forms. Sometimes it can come in the way of physical beauty.  Other times from athletic prowess.  Still other times from humanistic endeavors like building houses for the poor. In the case of Dustin Penner, it comes in two ways. The Facial Hair and The Funny. When combined, this […]

Our Post on Puck Daddy – NHL Playoff Beard Watch: Unsung Unshaven Heroes

The stage is nearly set for the ultimate NHL showdown. The Devils and Rangers battle it out at center stage while the Kings wait in the offing for their opponent to be named. It’s a long, hard fight to be among the last teams standing. Every one inch is earned. This week, we salute the […]

Pancakes For Everyone – Uno, Dos, Adiós!

My cats have banned me from the TV. Osiris Jones actually mews at anyone who swears. True Story. And there was a ton of it tonight. I swear like a sailor and many of Mr. Cherrie’s friends think I learned it from him but actually, I taught him pretty much everything he knows. My grandfather worked […]

Our Post on Puck Daddy – NHL Playoff Beard Watch: Alternate Captains

The letter “A” is awarded only to the best. Students with the highest scores. Products with the best quality. Restaurants with the cleanest kitchens. We all know Alvin didn’t lead The Chimpmunks just because he had the best dance moves. The very presence of an “A” denotes greatness. We love (OK, worship) our NHL team […]

Kings Kickin' Butt

So the LA King’s have lost only one play-off game so far … No, that is not a typo. ONE. Coach Dave Tippett of the Coyotes, seems to be the only other person on the planet besides me, the only LA KINGS fans (OK – I know there are like – four of us) who know […]

40 is the New Foxy

Uh, there’s something missing from your post Chuck. James Neal’s 40th goal of the season! The Nealmobile was honking like mad last night as James hit this milestone.  His previous career-high was 27 goals in 2009-10.  How fun it must be to play alongside Geno (105 points this year) and sometimes Sid (22 points in […]

Foxy Friday: Nicklas Lidstrom

I was thinking on Tuesday of all the NHL teams and who had never gotten a Foxy Friday (yes, this is what I think about).  Your suggestions are spot on – we’ve never featured a Senator, Star, anyone from the Blues or the Wild.  Or… drum roll… the Red Wings.  (I’m not counting Mike Modano.) […]


I hope I didn’t exhaust the #sorrychuck tag this weekend, because it needs one more outing.  Steven Stamkos scored his 50th goal of the season last night in Tampa Bay’s 6-1 rout of the Bruins. I was #Landeskoging all over even though I wasn’t watching the game.  Stammer was the first star, naturally. Enjoy this […]

30 is the new…

If I have to be up early on a Sunday, let there be good news every time. James Neal scored his 30th goal of the season yesterday in Pittsburgh’s win over Philly.  This morning, the Penguins announced they’ve signed Neal to a six-year contract extension [link].  Six more years?! Excuse me while I… The deal […]

Foxy Friday: Henrik Lundqvist

It’s official. We’ve done lost our minds. Commit us to the looney bin.  Get us some stylish straight jackets and lock us in that padded room with Justin Timberlake and his weird blond curly ‘fro. Why you ask? Well, first of all, three of the last six Foxy Friday have been New York Rangers.  Three! […]
