Interview: Bernie Nicholls

March 20, 2018 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Bernie Nicholls had a nice playoff run with the New Jersey Devils in 1993-94.
Bernie Nicholls (centre) scored twice in Game Five of the 1993-94 Eastern Conference Final.

We recently had the opportunity to talk to former NHL star Bernie Nicholls, who scored 1,209 points in 1,127 career games over 17 seasons with six different teams, mostly with the Los Angeles Kings.

Nicholls recently got involved with The Global Finance Sports Financial Exchange, a stock market powered by blockchain technology that, instead of selling shares in companies, allows investors the opportunity to buy “shares” of professional sports teams. Stock prices fluctuate based on wins/losses, draft picks and trades.

The company is headed by actor Zack Ward of A Christmas Story fame.

Nicholls told us all about the business and shared with us plenty of juicy details about his playing career. Among the highlights of our discussion:

  • How investors can use their sports knowledge to make money in this stock market;
  • Nicholls says you’ll get just as much excitement using their platform as you will gambling on games or playing Fantasy sports;
  • What was different during his historic 70-goal, 150-point season;
  • How many talented players he was fortunate enough to play with over his career, including the criminally underrated Scott Niedermayer;
  • His pet peeves in today’s game such as the little elbows to the head or cheap shots from behind; and
  • His picks for this season’s Stanley Cup champ, including his sleeper pick — the Kings.

The Wire Troll: Charlie Lindgren Claims the Goalie Gig in Montreal

November 18, 2017 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Although Nyquist was shut out Friday, you get the sense the slow starter is on the cusp of a breakout. He ripped six shots on goal (two on breakaways) and played over 20 minutes — his most ice time since October 10. Nyquist is still looking to rediscover the scoring touch that saw him score 28 goals in just 57 games in 2013-14, but he was even +/- on a bad team last season and managed to rip 165 shots (alhtough a poor shooting percentage cost him). That has normalized so far this season, so if he keeps shooting like Friday, the puck will start going in. Buy low while you can, but just don’t expect the centre to help your faceoff numbers. He took until Wednesday to get his first faceoff win of the season (having taken just four draws all season).

The 2016-17 NHL Wire Troll All-Star Team

June 5, 2017 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
After setting career highs in goals and points last season, Granlund obliterated all his personal bests this season en route to being named a finalist for the Lady Byng Award. His 69 points tied for the fourth highest total in Wild franchise history as the ninth overall pick from 2010 really came into his own. If you were astute enough to grab Granlund off the wire some time in the first month and a half of the season, you were incredibly well rewarded.

Video Game Review: Old Time Hockey

March 28, 2017 | by Mike Chen | Comments Comments Off
If you’re comparing the actual on-ice play to EA’s version, the controls may be the same, but the response time is strangely sloppy and slow. Shooting feels off and collision detection is inconsistent at best. Passing is what you’d expect, except your players are hardly ever in the right spot for a breakout or a one-timer.
