After you check out Kevin Weekes’ latest video, part of the Edward Jones Face Time initiative, you can read about how Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock’s advice to Nyquist was to just start shooting. That tends to help you score goals. The Hart Trophy debate likely begins and ends with Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby.
And after you watch Kevin Weekes’ latest video, part of the Edward Jones Face Time initiative, you can read my take on how the Canucks have struggled under John Tortorella. (Specifically, about the problems Vancouver’s had moving the puck out of its own end.)
It seems like the San Jose Sharks have been knocking on the door for ages, but as fans of their biggest rivals will note particularly loudly, it hasn’t worked out for the long-time contenders in the playoffs. Former NHL goalie Kevin Weekes addresses their Stanley Cup chances in the latest video with fans through the Edward Jones Face Time initiative.

Perhaps that’s why surprise teams like Toronto are slipping noticeably while the Canucks of the world are moving on up.
Yet one shocking success story keeps chugging along, as the Minnesota Wild stand alone atop the NHL. It’s reasonable for normally reasonable people to ask: how and why? Jeremy Roenick and Kevin Weekes shared their reactions and Mike Yeo would be glad to know that the word “passive” wasn’t being thrown around …
