TweetBy Laura Astorian www.thrashingtheblues.com May 31st, 2012 I already wrote some reflections of how I felt, and still feel about the loss of the Thrashers over on Arctic Ice Hockey. It's a better post than what this one will be, probably because I wrote it at 1:00 in the AM and I was all "inspired." […]

How Scott Howson masterfully deflects attention to Rick Nash http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/27/how-scott-howson-masterfully-deflects-attention-to-rick-nash/ Tue, 28 Feb 2012 00:14:27 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/27/how-scott-howson-masterfully-deflects-attention-to-rick-nash/

TweetIt’s rare that I watch the general managers’ comments after the NHL trade deadline’s come and gone. When the Thrashers were in town, I was usually too irritated to want to watch; with the Blues, they never do anything huge anyway, so there’s no reason to tune in. This trade deadline, however, I was interested […]

Warren Peters Suspended One Game For Cross Check On David Backes; Shanny’s Explanation Is Weak http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/19/warren-peters-suspended-one-game-for-cross-check-on-david-backes-shannys-explanation-is-weak/ Mon, 20 Feb 2012 01:56:48 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/19/warren-peters-suspended-one-game-for-cross-check-on-david-backes-shannys-explanation-is-weak/

TweetI fully understand the fact that Warren Peters was frustrated towards the end of Saturday night's Minnesota Wild/St. Louis Blues game. The Wild were getting walloped 4-0, they only managed thirteen shots on net, and they just weren't playing very good hockey. It happens. And yes, the Blues're a pretty hard hitting team, and sure, […]

The amazing power of forgiveness and hockey http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/19/the-amazing-power-of-forgiveness-and-hockey/ Sun, 19 Feb 2012 21:23:19 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/19/the-amazing-power-of-forgiveness-and-hockey/

TweetIt's an impossible concept for most people to understand: how do you forgive someone for doing something unforgivable? Not what has become the traditional unforgivable, like maybe someone taking your promotion at work, undermining you in some way, or taking something of value from you. No, unforgivable as in the most pure definition of the […]

TSN’S Dave Hodge Insinuates Tim Thomas Has Klan Sympathies, Proves Political Discourse’s Dead http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/24/tsns-dave-hodge-insinuates-tim-thomas-has-klan-sympathies-proves-political-discourses-dead/ Tue, 24 Jan 2012 19:56:43 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/24/tsns-dave-hodge-insinuates-tim-thomas-has-klan-sympathies-proves-political-discourses-dead/

TweetTim Thomas skipped yesterday's meeting with President Barack Obama to honor the Bruins' 2011 Stanley Cup Championship. Teams go to the White House all of the time, and Thomas was the team's only American. He backed out due to his political beliefs; he's fairly conservative and is disgusted with the direction that the nation's moving […]

Atlanta Spirit Pretends To Care About Your Thoughts In New Survey http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/12/atlanta-spirit-pretends-to-care-about-your-thoughts-in-new-survey/ Fri, 13 Jan 2012 04:21:16 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/12/atlanta-spirit-pretends-to-care-about-your-thoughts-in-new-survey/

TweetThese "fan pulse studies" were sent out to Thrashers fans and season ticket holders, so it's no surprise that fans of the Atlanta Hawks got them. What is surprising, as pointed out by my good bud Everett Duke, is that they asked about the relocation of the Thrashers. This is impressive. Like Jeff Schultz noticed, […]

Targeting Barret Jackman: Anyone Else Notice An Uptick? http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/11/targeting-barret-jackman-anyone-else-notice-an-uptick/ Wed, 11 Jan 2012 19:54:39 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/11/targeting-barret-jackman-anyone-else-notice-an-uptick/

TweetI, obviously, watch a lot of Blues hockey - I think I've missed watching maybe one - possibly two - games this season, and schlepped all the way up to Nashville to catch a game. The more I watch, the more of an interesting trend I'm seeing: they frustrate the opposition. In the past they've […]

Blues’ Winning Ways And Confidence Have Me Optimistic. Uh oh. http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/09/blues-winning-ways-and-confidence-have-me-optimistic-uh-oh/ Mon, 09 Jan 2012 19:46:00 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/09/blues-winning-ways-and-confidence-have-me-optimistic-uh-oh/

TweetThose of you who know me personally, or who follow me on-line, or even those who read this blog and things I write elsewhere know that I'm not an optimistic person by nature. I adopt the very Denmark-ian ideals of not expecting anything. If something bad happens, ok - but if something good happens you're […]

Lars Eller Got Me Wondering About Humility In Youth: Is It Passe? http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/06/lars-eller-got-me-wondering-about-humility-in-youth-is-it-passe/ Fri, 06 Jan 2012 20:51:12 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/01/06/lars-eller-got-me-wondering-about-humility-in-youth-is-it-passe/

TweetThe Habs were already taking it to the Jets 6-2, and Eller already had three goals an an assist on the night. At that point, this game is the pinnacle of his career hands down. To get a penalty shot and a chance to make it four goals is exciting - you probably don't care […]

“If You See Something, Say Something” At NHL Games? http://ballhyped.com/2011/12/29/if-you-see-something-say-something-at-nhl-games/ Fri, 30 Dec 2011 04:37:06 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/12/29/if-you-see-something-say-something-at-nhl-games/

TweetOk, ok, I realize that public awareness of suspicious individuals is something that the government pretty much has to promote. Granted, most of these PSAs are about as ethnically diverse as an ADT Security ad, so maybe it is good for the "If You See Something, Say Something" campaign to make it into the NHL. […]

Jason Arnott Trade Bait? Blues Having A Terrible Season? WTF. http://ballhyped.com/2011/12/02/jason-arnott-trade-bait-blues-having-a-terrible-season-wtf/ Fri, 02 Dec 2011 15:06:29 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/12/02/jason-arnott-trade-bait-blues-having-a-terrible-season-wtf/

TweetApologies on lack of postings, those of you who notice that I write stuff. Work has been killer, and then a holiday hit in which I foolishly brought work home with me, and meh. That, and the Blues've been so totally awesome that I haven't been worked up enough to write anything. You know, with […]

Thrashers 2008 All Star Game Mural Gone; Fans Re-Depressed http://ballhyped.com/2011/12/02/thrashers-2008-all-star-game-mural-gone-fans-re-depressed/ Fri, 02 Dec 2011 15:04:55 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/12/02/thrashers-2008-all-star-game-mural-gone-fans-re-depressed/

TweetThrashers fans are still sad about not having a hockey team to go see, obviously, but generally we've come to terms with the bad luck and incompetence that marred our beloved franchise. We understand (at least I do) that the sale and the move is strictly on Atlanta Spirit LLC, and that the folks in […]
