BBG&CS: Abney & the Fall of Rome, Advanced Stats, Salary Cap going UP, Refs, Swedish Goalies, and is this IKEA or a Swedish Hockey Player?

Cameron Abney Takes on The World!!! (courtesy of the Bakersfield Condors) — For old movie buffs, Abney has always reminded me a bit of Victor Mature (in Samson and Delilah, 1949) — a man with a strong jaw, incredibly cheesy, but also impressive at times. On…

BBG&CS: Ilya Bryzgalov — Lost in Translation

BBG&CS: Ilya Bryzgalov — Lost in Translation

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock you no doubt have heard the news that the Edmonton Oilers have signed Ilya Bryzgalov, the Russian goaltender who has been burlesqued, lampooned and ridiculed in the hockey media for the past three years. The hockey world as I’ve discovered is one in which a great many involved — teams, players, media, and fans alike — are very insular and even xenophobic on occasion. It is also at times a contradictory world of full-blown machismo and a “pour your heart out” mentality, which often lends further fuel to being lampooned.

BBG&CS: Toque Mask, Ilya to Vegas, New NHL Rules and Youth Hockey’s start in St. Louis

BBG&CS: Toque Mask, Ilya to Vegas, New NHL Rules and Youth Hockey’s start in St. Louis

Best Mask EVER? Harding’s new mask certainly ranks high on my list of favorites! — “While most goaltenders represent just their team or their personal design on their masks, Harding has something different up his sleeve each year. These include a classic mask to raise breast cancer awareness, a tribute to his grandmother, one that paid tribute to his old buddies playing pond hockey, another for favourite band Rascal Flatts, and even one that was a tribute to all the Minnesota masks Miska created over the years. Harding and Miska always team up for something creative.
