Many NHL fans were surprised to hear that New York Islanders Forward, Blake Comeau was put on waivers yesterday. Comeau, a guy who scored 24 Goals and 22 assists last season, is not doing much this year so far. With zero points in 16 games and a -11 rating, Garth Snow is using Comeau to show his team that if you do not preform, you are out. Most Isles fans believed that Comeau was part of the core of young players that the Isles boast, which includes John Tavares, Matt Moulson, Frans Neilson, Kyle Okposo, Josh Bailey, Michael Grabner, Andrew MacDonald and Travis Hamonic. As we all know, the Isanders are in the bottom of the NHL and are not winning many games. Garth Snow has to do something about it, he tried to put together a deal based around Comeau but there was zero interest from other clubs due to his 2.5 million dollar contract. Yes, Comeau can be lazy at times, but he is a very talented player. I would be really surprised if nobody claims him off waivers.

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
