Technology: Part of Scouting

Technology is now an important part of Sports. Just look at the modern golf clubs, the baseball bats and the hockey sticks, just to skim the surface. Equipment is much stronger yet lighter and, in some cases more protective. It was inevitable that technology would become a part of scouting and recruiting as well. Technology in sports was always attractive to me. In 1985, as an assistant coach with the Los Angeles Kings, I was a pioneer in using technology in the NHL. I worked with a computer programmer in creating a program which would record live statistics, including time on ice. It had never been done before. We succeeded but it was a long and difficult process based on what computers could do at that time. Well, afte...

RUSSIANS FAILED TO BECOME A TEAM!

An elite athlete is often best judged on how he or she reacts to adversity. A fall or a loss doesn’t define the competitor or a team. How they react after a fall determines their real value. The Russian Hockey team is one example of the failure to use adversity as a motivator in the 2014 Olympics. Yes, they were the victim of a very bad call against the Americans in the preliminary round in their 3-2 shoot-out defeat. They had taken the lead late in the game to see their goal turned back because the net was off its moorings. It was a good goal, it should have been a good goal but it wasn’t, based on international rules. To make matters worse, Americans goalie Jonathan Quick deliberately pushed the net off when he moved fr...

NHL OUTDOOR GAMES: WHAT’S NEXT?

Hey! Hockey Fans! Stop complaining about the cold weather or the Polar Vortex…if we didn’t have cold winters, we wouldn’t have HOCKEY! EY! We wouldn’t have Outdoor Hockey Games either…Ooops! That’s not completely true is it? AN OUTDOOR HOCKEY GAME IN CALIFORNIA…! REALLY! Who could have predicted the popularity of the NHL outdoor games and that the NHL would schedule 6 REGULAR SEASON OUTDOOR GAMES in the 2013-14 season. This past week alone, as part of the “Stadium Series”, there were 3 such games in 5 days; including two games at the legendary Yankee Stadium, in New York and an OUTDOOR GAME IN CALIFORNIA at the Dodger Stadium, in Los ...

43 YEARS IN THE NHL FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

Bobby Orr wrote a book called “MY STORY” which came out recently. It was on my list to Santa this year and she came through, the book was under the Christmas tree. Reading Bobby’s book, I was particularly interested in his humble beginnings, playing “shinny” hockey on a pond and playing just for the fun of it. We both came from the same era and I can relate to many of the stories he tells in the book. Living in Rigaud, a small town west of Montreal, near the Ontario border, there wasn’t much of anything that was organized for kids. During the winter, we played hockey for fun, skating on outdoor rinks and ponds for entertainment. I lived on “rue Ste-Madeleine”. The boys on the street all got together to build o...

IS FIGHTING IN THE NHL ON THE WAY OUT?

There’s no doubt about it! Fighting in the NHL is on “Life support”! Will the NHL pull the plug? As long as I remember, there was fighting in the NHL. It’s been a tradition, inbred in the minds of hockey fans for decades. It has served as a neutralizer, a deterrent to “cheap shots” and it also served to discourage those players who are faint of heart from playing in the NHL. I always supported fighting in our game. I felt that it was necessary to avoid a lot of stick work and cheap shots from players who know that there’s no consequence other than a possible penalty. Hockey is a tough sport. It’s physical, it’s fast and it’s emotional and intense. Injuries are bound to happen. However, the league can no lo...
