I guess Dean Lombardi was right about Justin Williams

The Justin Williams trade is, sort of, the reason I started blogging. In the wake of the Williams/O’Sullivan deadline deal — and the ensuing fire-storm in the Inside the Kings comments section, I really wanted a poll on whether commenter celebre Anthony [who?] was right about the Williams trade (hint: he wasn’t). The result was the blog Kings Kool…

Monday morning bullets: playoffs, points-blown, rookie stats

Points-Blown page is updated, and shows: Columbus is much worse off than the official standings (and pundits) would have you believe. St. Louis is better off than the official standings say. This has mostly to do with the fact that Columbus has only 12 games left, and St. Louis has 15. Everyone else who is…

Namely: until the league distinguishes unambiguously between intent-to-injure and recklessness, between unsportsmanlike acts of violence and what Pelletier calls “hockey plays gone awry”, there is no way to make heads or tails out…

Boyle’s Dad asked Lombardi to trade Brian back East

You need to read the whole thing, but here’s the best part: Rangers aren’t only big team for Boyle – NYPOST.com One by one, the proud father of Rangers hero Brian Boyle runs down the names and ages of his…

Playoff Roundelay: Kings East and Flyers West both up 3-0

And neither series is over, of course, but the dream of a Kings-Flyers cup final, as ridiculously premature that is even to speak out loud, lives to fight another day. I’ll say it again: Kings Flyers Cup Final I’m not saying because I think it’s going to happen. What am I, an idiot? I’m saying…
