Future posts will explore the strange and wonderful world of hockey — NHL and AHL specifically — but do not be surprised if we veer slightly off topic occasionally. Rather than play-by-play recaps, or charts and graphs of statistics, the stories that appear on this blog will be far more eccentric and will cover historical and contemporary events, players, equipment and any other hockey related issues from a fan’s perspective. Do not be surprised by an odd article on zambonis or pucks as well. Keep in mind, this is the more unconventional and entertaining side of hockey.
