The Young Kids Are Killing It – Part 1 of a Statistical Look at the Wings

I love stats.  I think they’re very interesting and can clue you into things that you might not realize simply by watching the game. Of course, unlike some idiots that have a blog over at KuklasKorner that’s as interesting as hearing an actuary’s life story, I know that stats don’t tell the whole tale.  But […]

Closing Up Shop – Locked Out On Helm Street

I love the Wings.  I love watching, reading and writing about the team and the sport.  That’s what brought about NOHS—Drew loved the Wings and wanted to share his thoughts with others.  And from that it has grown into the site it is today.  It absolutely astonished me every single day that […]

Talking Griffins-Wolves With Daniel Wagner

  The Griffins and Wolves met in Chicago on Friday night and the Griffins won 3-0, as Thomas McCollum posted a shutout and helped extend the Griffs' road winning streak to six.  The Griffins remained one point out of the division lead despite the victory.  In anticipation of this Midwest Division battle, I asked Daniel Wagner […]

Coming Soon: NOHS Lockout Therapy

The Red Wings season would have started this Friday, but as you all know, we've been locked out and there's nothing we can do about it. Or is there? Last year the NBA simulated its season up to the end of their lockout. They kept track of standings and stats and I believe they wrote […]
