Blog: What Happened To The Loyalty?

Occam’s Razor: When presented with two or more competing hypotheses the simplest of the set tends to be the right one. Keep that in mind when you read this article, if you would.

Blog: Lou Must Trade To Earn My Trust

**This is a complete conspiracy theory on my part. It’s filled with rumors based off of one news report with the foundation of evidence that amounts to nothing. I’m simply testing out how well I have studied Lou’s professional behavior over the years.** In Lou We Trust I used to hate that phrase and In some ways I still do.

Blog: Isles Must Throw Out The Under Dog Role

With the NHL moving forward beyond the quarter mark and the New York Islanders playing tomorrow against the Philadelphia Flyers, it’s time to take a deeper look into the Isles and see where things could be headed for over the next quarter mark.
