We've heard the phrase, "It doesn't matter how you win, as long as you win," for years. It makes sense in pro sports, where it is your job to win, but if you win by playing boring, non-creative hockey is it still worth it?
If you ask fans of the LA Kings they will surely say they love Kings' hockey, and it is easy to see why since they've won six straight playoff series. However, I find myself turning off the TV and tuning out of their games on a nightly basis this year.

Jordan Eberle returned home after his fourth consecutive appearance at the World Championships, and for the fourth straight year team Canada failed to advance past the quarter finals. Eberle was on my radio show on Wednesday and we discussed the Worlds, Lindy Ruff, golf, shooting commercials and what areas the Oilers must improve in, if they hope to become a playoff team.

Last night Craig MacTavish held a TeleForum where season ticket holders could call in, listen and ask questions. Since I'm a season ticket holder I was able to listen in. His responses to goaltending and the future of Shawn Horcoff and Sam Gagner intrigued me the most.

From June 15th to the 30th NHL teams have a chance to rid themselves of their bad financial decisions; also know as the buyout period. This year the buyout period should be more active with the introduction of two potential compliance buyouts per team.

There has been lots of speculation lately on the health of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. The 2011 first overall pick had surgery on April 23rd to repair a torn labrum, and recently I've noticed some suggesting he will be out for a significant portion of next season.
Rather than speculate, I decided to put in a call to his agent Rick Valette to get an update on RNH's shoulder.
