Logan Couture at the 2012 NHL All Star weekend

Canada’s Olympic Hockey Team: Do You Know Your Fourth Line?

Logan Couture at the 2012 NHL All Star weekend

Crosby, Toews, and Weber can’t play every shift.

So when it’s time to roll out the third and fourth line, or when injuries create a lot of ice time for the seventh defenseman, who do you want on your bench?

With the 2014 Winter Olympics one year away, that’s the real question facing Canada.

Assuming the NHL agrees to participate – and the signs look good – Team Canada has many tough choices to make.

Those questions aren’t at the top of the roster. You could list eight or ten names that just about everyone in the country will agree on.

The competition for jobs is in the lower range of the depth chart.

That’s where names like Eberle, Hall, Seguin, Getzlaf, Lucic, Letang, Boyle, and Fleury will generate much debate in the months ahead.

Here’s out first crack at the projected 2014 Team Canada Olympic roster.

Brad Marchand and Bruins Fans Celebrate

The NHL Standings Explained

Brad Marchand and Bruins Fans Celebrate

It ought to be simple.

Keeping track of wins and losses, letting the numbers decide who is better than who.

That’s what the standings are all about.

But it turns out that every sport is different when it comes to ranking its teams.

The NHL standings might be the strangest of all, with its infamous “loser point.”

Thanks to the lockout, this NHL season is a mad dash instead of a marathon.

The shortened schedule has many predicting that teams will be bunched within a few points of each other when the final standings are set on April 27.

With that in mind, here’s a review of how the numbers are crunched:
