a preview wrapped in a purview

RENOWNED ROCK GUITARIST AND Eagles band member Joe Walsh released a solo album in 1983 he cheekily called “You Bought It – You Name It.” I’m not aware of the backstory, but it’s reasonable to assume he couldn’t come up with a title he preferred, or he was banking on humor to attract customers. Either way, I could see the appeal of that idea recently as The Hockey News editors scrambled to brainstorm a new handle for this edition, formerly known as Season Preview. It’s not that “Season Preview” is entirely inaccurate or bad. The guts of the magazine continue to ooze information, expectations and projections for the NHL year ahead. We’ve got our staples, such as individual awards predictions and the top 25 players by position. And in our NHL…

30 cheers for jason

Dear readers, No. 30 is the number that The Hockey News readers, who are hockey experts, identify with goalies Brodeur, Lundqvist, Worsley, Barrasso, Vachon, Thomas, Vernon, Cheevers, Osgood, Miller, Ranford and others. (No, I didn’t know all these goalies wore No. 30, but I did after reading The Hockey News’ Top 100 Goalies of All-Time Collector’s Edition, which is available at TheHockeyNews.com/store). Thirty, however, is also the number of years that Jason Kay (who was also a goalie for a few games when he was a kid) has been a valuable member of The Hockey News team. On Sept. 7, 1989, Jason started working at The Hockey News as a copy editor under the editor in chief at the time, Bob McKenzie. Since then, Jason has risen through the ranks and became…

soapbox

Season-ending injury to Sergei Bobrovsky forces @strombone1 to come out of retirement, and he leads the Panthers to the Stanley Cup!– @jimbri The Jets sign Patrik Laine to a seven-year, $10-million-per-year contract in November. He promptly scores seven goals in his first game back – then doesn’t score again for the rest of the season.– Robert Arnott Jack Johnson will change his name to John Jackson in order to try and generate some positive feelings from Penguins fans.– @caseykarger Nathan Horton and David Clarkson are miraculously healed during a Revival Tent meeting. The Leafs’ salary-cap structure becomes absolutely unmanageable.– Jeff Baker @GrittyNHL starts the year as the Flyers’ third-line right winger. He immediately receives a lifetime ban from the NHL for shooting Patrick Kane with a T-shirt gun.– @ChuckSeiders Jaromir Jagr shows up again, this…

ageless ovechkin

NEVER. DOUBT. ALEX. Ovechkin. Again. At The Hockey News, we’ve learned to repeat that mantra in the mirror three times daily. One year ago, he was fresh off a magical season that included a Rocket Richard Trophy, Stanley Cup, Conn Smythe Trophy and a constant flow of viral celebration videos. ‘Ovie’ was entering his age-33 campaign and, at least anecdotally, had partied harder in the off-season than any Cup-winning captain in recent memory. So when we tallied our staff award predictions for the 2018-19 season, we figured he’d earned a rest after seven Rocket Richard Trophies and would hand the goal-scoring mantle off to Patrik Laine. Instead, Ovechkin scored a league-best 51 goals. He passed Bobby Hull to establish a new NHL record for times leading the league in goals at eight.…

behind the mask

VASILEVSKIY’S MASKS ARE ANXIOUSLY anticipated annually by goalie buffs. After all, artist Sylvie Marsolais’ work won the NHL Fan Choice Award in 2017-18. The trademark lightning-charged lion, representing Vasilevskiy’s determined spirit, remains on the new lid, though Marsolais calls the lion “a bit more angry looking.” New this season: ‘Lightning’ replaces ‘Bolts’ on the sides, gripped by realistic-looking lion paws with the claws digging into the letters. MASK DESIGNED BY SYLVIE MARSOLAIS/SYLABRUSH.COM; MASK PHOTOS BY SEBASTIEN GERVAIS…

THE SABRES HAVE MADE some interesting uniform choices over the years, from the passable red and black of the 1990s to the loathsome ‘Buffaslug’ look of the late 2000s. Inevitably, it all comes back to the franchise’s best-known logo, however: the original that featured a buffalo and two crossed sabres. Celebrating 50 years in the NHL, the Sabres are returning to that staple – but with a twist. They’re going gold. “Fluorescent gold,” to be precise. For 13 home games, Buffalo will rock these sweet white uniforms, with the five stripes representing five decades of hockey, complete with white gloves.…
