I'm a lifelong sports fan who has been recording every detail of NHL, NBA, MLB, MLS and College Football games for STATS in Chicago since back in the days of dial-up.

These days, I also write hockey for Bleacher Report and do daily updates on the Vancouver Canucks over at HockeyBuzz.com. I like a good competition no matter what the activity, so from time to time you'll find me covering other sports like golf, tennis and the Olympics.

    Hello Carol. I did enjoy your article about predictions for the rest of the nhl season. That said, wrt the LA Kings brass, your research regarding the history of the Kings had one or two very important points that were incorrect.
    Dean Lombardi had nothing at all to do with drafting Anze Kopitar. He was drafted by Dave Taylor, and Dean made the mistake of awarding him a $10M per yr 8yr contract. He was (and hopefully will still be) a very good player. But his strength is his defensive play and very solid defensive numbers. Patrick Kane is a generational player, Toews is one of the great leaders. Anze is neither so imo giving him that contract was a bit of a stretch, but the key point is that Dean didn't draft him.

    In your recent article "Preview and Prediction for Capitals vs. Penguins" you have incorrectly stated a stat relating to Braden Holtby. He has only given up 5 goals in 6 games, the 2nd goal of game 5 was empty net.

    Carol your pick of Karlsson for the Norris is a total joke. Whats next Patrick Kane for the Selke? Ben Scrivens for the Vezina?

    Carol, in your piece about possible NHL trades. When discussing Druin, the 'Ning traded with NY for Ryan Callahan, not the Ryan you mention.

    The inaugural Seva Charity Golf Tournament to restore sight to the blind takes place on Monday, April 20, 2015, at the Sequoyah Country Club in the Oakland Hills, 4550 Heafey Road, Oakland CA. 100% of the proceeds go towards financing eye surgeries in the poor countries of the world. The tournament is being produced by an all-volunteer team.
    “80% of the world’s 39 million blind people could have their sight restored by a simple 15 minute operation costing an average of only $50,” says Jack Blanks, Executive Director of Seva. “I can think of no other way that so many lives could be transformed, for such a small investment.”
    “Seva specializes in curing blindness by performing low-cost cataract eye surgeries in the poorer countries of the world, such as India, Nepal, Tibet, Cambodia, and East Africa. Eye surgeries in the USA typically cost thousands of dollars, but are now being performed for only $50 in the Third World, due to innovations created by Seva. Jack Blanks is available to the news media for interviews by calling 510-845-7382 or emailing jblanks@seva.org.
    The tournament is open to golfers of all skill levels. It will feature a shotgun start at Noon with a 4-person Texas scramble. The suggested donation is $200 per person ($175 before April 1st) or $700 per foursome. This includes:
    • 18 holes of golf, golf cart
    • Continental breakfast
    • Boxed lunch
    • Wine, beer, and beverages
    • Putting contest
    • Gift bag valued at more than $100
    • Free massage before and after the tournament
    • K-vest/Bio-feedback clinic
    • Silent auction
    • Raffle
    • Awards Ceremony, with complimentary appetizers, wine, beer, and refreshments.
    Corporate Sponsorships and Hole Sponsorships are available. In-kind donations are most appreciated. Ads may be purchased in the Program Booklet. Volunteers are also sought to promote the tournament and also to work on the day of the tournament.
