My 2010 All-Star rosters… if there were actually a game

Hats Off! Look Who Has Hat Tricks This Season

An Interesting Look at Who Has the Hat-Tricks This Season We are more than halfway through the 2009-2010 season, and there are many teams that have surprised fans. What may be more surprising is which teams have recorded hat tricks this season. There are eight teams left who have not done it yet this season.

Even the last place Carolina Hurricanes have recorded a hat trick—three times. Washington leads the league in goals with 182, easily the most in the league.

Cormier Will Likely Face Charges For Vicious Elbow

UPDATE: Patrice Cormier has been suspended indefinitely according to TSN On Sunday night, Patrice Cormier delivered possibly one of the dirtiest and most vicious attacks I have ever seen in the history of this sport.

New Poll: Which Western team has the best chance of making the playoffs?

This past Sunday we asked the question: Which Eastern conference team currently sitting out of the playoff picture has the best chance of making it in come April?

But before we get to them, let's take a look at the results from the Eastern Conference.
