A brief introduction to the Hockey Hall of Fame’s Class of 2019

  A brief introduction to the Hockey Hall of Fame’s Class of 2019 A brief introduction to the Hockey Hall of Fame’s Class of 2019 represents many different parts of hockey history. It features arguably the greatest female player of all time, the winningest coach in college hockey and the first player that escaped Eastern Europe’s communist rule to play in North America. It also includes a reliable shutdown forward, a high-scoring defenceman and a general manager who has built three Stanley Cup champions.Here’s a brief look at the six people entering the Hall in the Class of 2019 ahead of Monday’s induction ceremony.

It’s great that hockey’s having this moment, that topics such as inclusion, bullying and hazing have been pushed into the forefront by the forced resignation of Bill Peters as head coach of the Calgary Flames stemming from allegations of racial epithets dating back to his time as a coach with the AHL’s Rockford Ice Hogs.

But for this conversation to result in anything substantive, to go beyond whatever findings and action the NHL takes once its investigation is complete and not simply disappear amid the churn of an NHL season, then current and past NHL players need to refrain from this “bad guy” narrative that is seeping into the conversation not only on Twitter, but in the mainstream media.

Opinion: For this immigrant, hockey was Canada's greatest gift. That's no longer the case

  Opinion: For this immigrant, hockey was Canada's greatest gift. That's no longer the case By Chris Stoate When I arrived in Montreal as an immigrant from England at the age of eight, there were outdoor rinks and shinny games everywhere, and one of my penniless parents’ first moves to help us become Canadian was to visit the equipment exchange for used skates so we could, at first on our ankles, join in the fun. We loved it. We moved the next year to Ontario, and anxiously awaited the first freeze-up. By Chris Stoate

Work can be negative ! This is the currently selected item. Work is a measurement of energy, so it may seem odd to think that a work can be negative — but it can! Work is how much energy is done by a force over a distance.

ENGLISH GRAMMAR IN USE FOR INTERMEDIATE. 1. PRESENT CONTINUOUS (I am doing). A. Study this example situation: Sarah is in her car. She is on her way to work. She is driving to work. This means: she is driving now, at the time of speaking. The action is not finished.

It’s the idea that a player with what his peers may deem to be a checkered past either on or off the ice should somehow not speak up. That somehow only the game’s “good guys” – “good” as defined by hockey players, executives or media – carry any real weight. That somehow, observations by players who made their living on some of the nastier edges of the game – yes, I am talking about players such as Daniel Carcillo – shouldn’t carry weight because of real or imagined past transgressions.

We’re all behind Akim Aliu now, because the way he described events under Peters has been corroborated by teammates who were with him on the Chicago Blackhawks Rockford affiliate. But let me tell you: the initial reaction of some in the hockey community was “oh, yeah … that guy.” When Mitch Marner was questioned whether the sneak peak he’d offered into a bizarre motivational technique used by Mike Babcock was a sign that players were ready to speak out, Marner remarked: “It’s your story to tell.”

#MeToo’s influence reaches coaches’ corner

  #MeToo’s influence reaches coaches’ corner Anne Kingston: Two years after the first mass movement to protest sexual harassment and assault, we see the testing of new tolerances play out in the hockey arena .#MeToo is often compared to a dam bursting under decades of pressure, triggered by a torrent of allegations of sexual assault and harassment against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. In this case, the controversial firing of bombastic Coach’s Corner co-host Don Cherry, prefaced this volley of first-person revelations.

What' s that terrible noise ? My brother is having a singing lesson today! 2. How many languages (speak) your brother ? Two. Then make the sentences negative .EET1.

Damn if in all the words and sentiments to come out of this thing those five words aren’t among the truest. Here’s hoping that young Mitch doesn’t become “one of those guys,” for saying it …

Good guys. Great guys. Bad guys. I once had a former member of the Toronto Blue Jays roll his eyes at me when I mentioned that the guy in the locker next to him “seemed like a good guy.” “Everybody’s a good guy in pro sports,” he responded, “even when they’re an ass—- like that guy.” Point taken. And honest to god: I wish I had a buck every time I heard some commentator or coach or player (regardless of sport) say “He’s a good guy … great guy.” I mean, how someone is as a teammate on or off the field or how someone is perceived by fans on or off the field often says little about the person. I’ve seen beloved athletes be absolute jackasses when fans aren’t around. I’ve seen reviled athletes show uncommon kindness. Which is, you know, kind of how we roll as human beings.

Stu Cowan: Firing Claude Julien won't solve Canadiens' problems

  Stu Cowan: Firing Claude Julien won't solve Canadiens' problems It’s easy to blame head coach Claude Julien for the Canadiens’ eight-game winless streak. Too easy. It wasn’t Julien who boastfully gave Andrei Markov and Alexander Radulov “first-come, first-served” contract offers after the 2016-17 season and then watched them both leave, getting absolutely nothing in return for the two veterans. It isn’t Julien who is paying defenceman Karl Alzner US$4.625 million a year to play for the AHL’s Laval Rocket with two more seasons after this remaining on his five-year, US$23.125-million contract. © Pierre Obendrauf Columbus Blue Jackets’ Eric Robinson scores on Canadiens goaltender Carey Price during first period in Montreal on Nov.

Mrs Cha seems to be ignoring the bloggers. She said that she’d be back for another attempt. Include at least two positive and two negative points in your answer. ‘How do you think technology will change our I hope so! I was woken up at 7 o’clock this morning by a terrible noise from room 308.

So is this a moment? I’m optimistic that it is, even though I fear that some of the NHL’s establishment voices – I’m talking former players and executives – are going to continue to pooh-pooh evidence and stories that come out from marginalized players. They’ll be written off as guys with grudges, guys who weren’t good players to begin with, or worse, guys with skeletons in their own closets from their own playing days in junior or the NHL. I mean, you just know how the fact that Aliu has been in touch with Colin Kaepernick’s law firm is going to be talked about in the corridors of NHL arenas.

Right. We can all talk about how coaches have evolved – hell, even Peters suggested he’d done so – without acknowledging that players, too, can evolve. That a guy can’t take a deep look at himself in his 40s and realize that what he might have had a hand in as an 18-year-old on some bus trip to North Bay was just awful and humiliating to the victim.

Look: if things really are different now, then this is a moment of which the game should be rightly pleased instead of running away from it. It has to be taken as a sign that much of the good work done at the minor-hockey level has borne fruit. That parents, coaches, players and minor-league executives are paying attention to some of the initiatives instituted through the efforts of the Sheldon Kennedys and Theoren Fleurys of the world. As Kennedy himself said Saturday night during Hockey Night in Canada: “there is a confidence now with our young athletes that is beginning to take shape around these issues … and we need to make sure everything’s in place and in line to handle it right.”

Struggling center Andreas Athanasiou could be trade chip for Red Wings

  Struggling center Andreas Athanasiou could be trade chip for Red Wings Athanasiou has been wildly inconsistent throughout his NHL career. After scoring 30 goals last season, this season has been a struggle.However, Athanasiou has struggled this season, with just five goals in 28 games along with a league-worst minus-31 rating. To that end, MLive’s Ansar Khan suggests that Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman could be reaching the point where he believes it’s time to move on from Athanasiou. The forward is one of several Red Wings players slated to become restricted free agents, and it’s likely the team will be seeking long-term pacts with wingers Anthony Mantha and Tyler Bertuzzi.

QUIBBLES AND BITS

• I don’t know if it’s realistic to expect the NHL’s investigation to unearth what if anything the parent Blackhawks knew about Peters’ racial epithets while he was coaching their minor-league team, but this is to me the remaining salient aspect to all this: who with Chicago knew what and when, and how do we square former Carolina Hurricanes GM Ron Francis’ statements that he “briefed” ownership about Peters physically abusing players with those by the team’s former owner Peter Karamanos that he would have fired Peters if he knew instead of signing off on a new two-year contract? Francis, the face of the new Seattle franchise, has more at stake in this than anybody other than Peters …

• The Toronto Raptors are rightly proud of the way undrafted rookie Terence Davis has been able to write himself large in the 2019-2020 season. But he hasn’t been as impressive as another undrafted player the Miami Heat will bring with them to the Scotiabank Arena on Tuesday: 6-2 guard Kendrick Nunn’s 295 points in his first 18 games are the third-most by an undrafted NBA player going back to the 1963-64 season. Connie Hawkins’ 389 points are the NBA record but he and John Brisker (No. 2 on the list with 330 in 1972-73) both played in the ABA before making their NBA debuts. Nunn is 24 and played in the G-League last season unlike the 22-year-old Davis, who is making the jump after his senior year at Ole Miss …

• Of all the developments in the NFL in the past month or so, I wonder if what we’re seeing from the Kansas City Chiefs’ defensive unit isn’t the most important under-the-radar shift in terms of playoff implications. If they can give Patrick Mahomes’ offence a supporting cast — look out. The Chiefs blew up their defence in the off-season, bringing in six new faces, naming Steve Spagnuolo their co-ordinator and switching to a 4-3. Back-to-back performances against the Los Angeles Chargers and Oakland Raiders need asterisks – Philip Rivers is so past his best-before date I’m surprised he wasn’t in “The Irishman,” and Derek Carr has all the fortitude of papier-mache – but the Chiefs have become a free-wheeling unit with an eye for the turnover. One of the most impressive statistics from Sunday’s beatdown of the Raiders: it was the first time since 1974 that the Chiefs were not flagged for an accepted penalty. So, you can add discipline to the checklist, too …

• I keep hearing how the Toronto Blue Jays feel they might have a market for one of their catchers, but it sure seems like time’s a-wastin’: Free agents Yasmani Grandal, Yan Gomes and Travis d’Arnaud have signed, as has Stephen Vogt. Still out there are Robinson Chirinos and Austin Romine. Now, Omar Narvaez and Willson Contreras seem to be on the market …

• It’s not just Connor McDavid who made hay in what was a November to remember: for the first time since 1992-93 the NHL hit Dec. 1 with five 40-point players. Nathan MacKinnon of the Colorado Avalanche became the fifth with three points in Saturday’s win over the Chicago Blackhawks. His 25 points in November are the most in franchise history since Joe Sakic had 26 in 13 games in March, 2000 …

THE ENDGAME

New head coach Sheldon Keefe has quickly put his mark on the Toronto Maple Leafs, both emotionally and stylistically, going so far we are told as to change some of the motivational messaging painted on the dressing room walls. The decision to remove “It’s a privilege, not a right,” – a line credited to Leafs legend Johnny Bower, and added at the request of former head coach Mike Babcock – likely raised some eyebrows. Putting Tyson Barrie on the first power-play unit seems full-scale Einstein given Babcock’s reluctance to do so, but if Keefe really wants to put his imprimatur on this team the best way to do it would be to hook up Mitch Marner and Auston Matthews on the same line when Marner returns to full health. He might also start Frederik Andersen both Tuesday against the Philadelphia Flyers and Wednesday against the Colorado Avalanche, unless he finds another backup goalie. Even though the Boston Bruins have essentially lapped everybody else in the division, it’s time to start collecting points and let the other stuff sort itself out. In fact, it’s just time, period …
