About

A graduate of Ohio University, Eric realized the west side was the best side and now lives in Denver, CO. He's currently in the process of learning how to root for Tim Tebow (err Peyton Manning), Ty Lawson and Todd Helton, but the glorious MLB package still allows him to follow the Cincinnati Reds. He enjoys watching, analyzing, tweeting and...oh yeah... actually going to sporting events. Eric currently works as an assignment editor for the breaking news department at Bleacher Report.

    How the hell are you a featured columnist? Your articles are full of the dumbest bullshit ever.

    I'm not even sure where to start with your article on the Kings cooling off before facing the Devils. The opening sentence, perhaps? If you read any sites you would know the Kings aren't favored to win the series, though it looks to be close. Next, the Kings had a seven day rest between their sweep of the Blues and their series start with the Coyotes. How did that series end? If they do lose, this break won't be the reason why. They have shown that they can still play, rusty or not. You clearly don't watch hockey if you think the Kings "coasted" through the playoffs. They have faced much adversity and proven they are a top team in every category- goaltending, defense, and offense. In addition, please tell me how the Kings don't have momentum coming into this series? They played the number 1, 2, and 3 teams and advanced to the cup final within 13 games. Every game they played was fought hard by physical and scoring means. You say the Devils have "gotten into a serious groove at the right time", yet you're giving no credit to Los Angeles who have had a spark lit under them since their series with Vancouver, any bystander could see that. You say "But what happens when he lets that first soft goal get by? What happens when his team isn’t playing with the lead?" Clearly you didn't see the weak shot by Derek Morris on the red line, and the Kings still came out on top in that game. Lastly, you say that you predict the Devils because of their experience, not being rusty, and home ice advantage. Maybe you'd like to check out that none of the Devils "stars" (Kovalchuk, Parise, Henrique) have never played in the finals before. Sure, Brodeur has, but theres only so many times you can dwell on the cups he's previously won. Meanwhile, the Kings have more experienced players who have been in this position before, both on the winning and losing side. They know what to expect. And home ice advantage means nothing, in case you haven't watched any of the Los Angeles games (8- 0 on the road??) Didn't Vancouver have home ice advantage last year... They did, didn't they? Needless to say I'm ashamed that you even think you could have any judgement in who is going to win this. Your ideas are not only not researched, but average at best. You clearly don't watch hockey and have some nerve even attempting to post an article with so many holes in its theory.

    Come on, at least put up a proper picture of Paul Williams on your article. It's obvious that you don't know who he is, but don't disrespect him like that putting up a wrong pic

    The article about the Caps and the Sens will continue to shock fans is hilarious.

    Both teams won their season series handedly so to "shock" fans is just down right funny.

    Now to get to my reasoning on why I think your article is hilarious.

    For one thing, the GAA for both Thomas and Holtby is the same at 0.83.

    Write the stats correctly as well. Obviously you have no hockey knowledge nor do you research anything as it seems media hype is your thing.

    Save percentage for Holtby is .973 and Thomas is not that far behind .964.

    From what I have seen to date, Holtby is the only reason that the Caps are tied up

    That's right. Tied up in the series. As in they are lucky to be not behind by two games.

    Same goes with the Senators. They are also tied up and they got owned in Game 1 only to win in overtime on Game 2

    How in the heck can you say that they will surprise?

    You want to talk about teams that are surprising folks?

    Lets talk about the Predators or the Kings. Both teams taking on star studded teams and have the series leads.

    This is a poor example of an article with very little data to back it up.

    You are terrible reported. You write with no research or even basic knowledge of what you are talking about.West Virginia is from the BIG EAST and should by any analysis go to the dance. Get a life or better yet, just get.
