Spring has sprung, the playoffs are almost here, it's Wrestlemania Sunday, and if that wasn't enough it's time for First Star, Worst Star!

We’re approaching what could be a pretty slow summer for goalie moves. There really aren’t that many No. 1 candidates approaching free agency or plausibly available via trade; at the same time 80 percent of the league – 24 teams – has a legitimate starter under contract and two more clubs have one entering restricted free agency.

Earlier this week, I took a look at the playoff races in both the Western and Eastern Conferences — the NHL’s version of March Madness. Because of the 2015 draft likely being the best class of rookies in over a decade, the race to the bottom has become just as interesting as the battles for playoff positions for many fans.
With a couple weeks left to go in the season, we have four teams who have truly stood out as the best tankers in the Connor McDavid sweepstakes. Something to note, the league is changing the draft lottery format this year, and again next year to deter teams from trying to lose games. This year, they’ve lowered the odds for the worst teams in the league to have their magic ball drawn, and next year they’re drawing balls to determine the first three draft slots.
Anyways, teams are just trying to be as bad as possible so even if they don’t get McDavid, they can still get the best consolation prize possible.

March is the most exciting month for women's hockey. First, the CWHL had its Clarkson Cup Tournament in Markham, Ontario, followed just a few weeks later by the women's NCAA Frozen Four, this time in Minneapolis, Minnesota (with the Minnesota Golden Gophers coming out on top).
With both the CWHL and NCAA seasons over, all of the best female players in the world are now free for the IIHF Women's World Championships, opening in Malmö, Sweden on March 28. Outside of the Olympics, it's the largest and most diverse high-level tournament for women's hockey, and it happens with much more frequency.
