  • Team Canada Olympic Hockey Schedule

    Team Canada looks to repeat as gold medalists at the 2006 Winter Olympic games in Turin, Italy.

    The Canadian team has been riddled with injury troubles as has most of the other teams. Canada has a relatively easy start to the tournament facing hosts Italy in the first game and followed by games against Germany and Switerzland.

    Keep in mind time is 6 hours ahead of EST and 9 hours ahead of Pacific time.

  • Aaron Downey – Hockey fights?

    For those who are waiting to see what they’re in for when the newly acquired Aaron Downey drops his gloves for the first time as a Hab. Here is some historical evidence that lends a clue.

    Aaron Downey’s Left Hook

    Buffalo’s Pete Peters dismantled the leading NHL heavyweight Brian McGrattan last week and the Sabres went on to beat the Sens and came a step closer to the Division leaders. People who don’t think hockey enforcers still matter should probably rethink that theory.
