NHL Rules Changes
As part of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the league, owners, and players have all agreed to enact some rule changes.  It sounds basically like none of the three parties agrees that the rule changes are all great or what they want, but that the final …

COYOTE HULK SOCK DEN
Which as everyone knows is an anagram for “hockey lockout ends” (if you hadn’t already heard).  As a recent fan of hockey, I had still not found a team.  You know a “my team” team.  I always had someone to root for during games, had …
