Things are happening

In the NHL. Here are

Some in haiku form.


<Heavy sigh> OK,

Let’s discuss the NHL’s

Weirdest clusterfuck:


First, DeBoer’s out.

So far, so predictable.

Then it gets cray-cray


Who’s the new head coach?

Stevens… and Oates. Somehow both

But also neither


Because Lou’s there too

(Along with three normal-type

Assistant coaches).


Who’s really in charge?

Lou. Always Lou. But in the

Larger sense, no one.


It’s gone off the tracks.

Plus, the Devils still have mumps

And so much gray hair.


Thank god for Jagr

He’s really all we have left

‘Til he gets traded.


Yeah, it’s pretty bad.

Could be worse, though. At least we’re

Not Edmonton fans.

World juniors

Some kids played hockey.

Canadians went crazy.

The rest of us shrugged.

Zemgus Girgensons, Redux

Latvia did it!

They got a non-Blackhawk on

The All-Star roster!


Finally, here’s a

Guest haiku from a reader.

Thanks, contributor!

(It is impossible to fit “@TeresaDLCRZ “into a haiku, but she has our heartiest thanks nonetheless!)

Winter Classic

New year, more hockey.

Not even Earth’s natural

Glare can stop the puck.
