…that is the question on many NHL players’ minds right now, when it comes to deciding whether to take up their spot on the Olympics rosters of their home countries (if selected of course). But what would a potential positive COVID result mean for the fans, for their NHL clubs, for their mental health, and for their bank balance? On this episode of NHL Fans From Afar, Clare & Jolon debate: Are players selfish if they want to go play in the Olympics? With more postponements and players entering COVID protocol across America & Canada, is it time for the NHL to bring back the taxi squad? V ..read more

Biting is wrong

If you had to describe what you can and can't do someone in the NHL... I wonder how long it would take to get to saying... "oh yeah, you can't bite an opponent!" Anyway, this week that's exactly what happened and it's on our list of things to talk about. Montreal have fired their longstanding GM and we look at what's next for a team which were only a few games away from lifting the cup last season. Some big names have found themselves on the waiver wire and heading to the AHL including a two time Stanley Cup winning goaltender. Plus as both our hosts teams are currently on winning streaks, the ..read more

Kyle Beach Is A Hero

This episode, we pay huge respect to the player Kyle Beach, who has almost single-handedly challenged an entire institution to do better, and to be better in dealing with instances of sexual abuse reporting. This week a major investigation revealed there HAD been a systemic failure in how the Chicago Blackhawks handled Kyle’s abuse in 2010, and since it was published - many of the Stanley Cup winning management from that time have resigned and been challenged on how on earth they could have let down a young player so badly. During this NHL Fans From Afar, we look back at the past, the present ..read more

Seattle Kraken make their debut, plenty of first-time NHL goals ticked off for rookies across the league and electric to hear fans back in the building!

Could the secret to winning the 2021 Stanley Cup be in having a good rear end? It's nothing new that great goaltending has always been key in keeping an NHL team's silverware hopes alive, but it seems that both New York Islanders and Vegas Golden Knights are keeping up their success with some impressive stats and scoring opportunities from their defensemen... We pick about the painful end of seasons for Colorado Avalanche and Boston Bruins. Plus, are all Canadians pinning their validity of the North Division on the Canadiens?! And two new coaches - one for Columbus Blue Jackets and New York Ra ..read more

Montreal Canadiens SWEEP Winnipeg Jets and take a 7 game winning streak in the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs.... Contains conversions about boa constrictors and continued misery for Toronto Maple Leafs' fans. We're still bitter, sorry. NHL Fans From Afar is prese ..read more
