Jamie Benn Art Ross Repeat 2015/2016 NHL Season

Jamie BennLast season Jamie Benn (#14) of the Dallas Stars won the Art Ross Trophy for being the leagues leader points scorer in the regular season with 87 points.  This season Benn appears keen to continue where he left off.

While we’re just 9 games into the 2015/2016 82 game season, Jamie Benn leads the league in goals (8) and Points (15).  A lot of Benn’s success can be attributed to his linemate, Tyler Seguin, who sits at #3 on the points list with 13 points in 9 games.

Will we see a Jamie Benn Art Ross repeat this season?

While there is a long way to go in the scoring race, one things for certain, Jamie Benn and the Dallas Stars are making the 2015 / 2016 NHL Season very exciting to watch!

Newcastle Boss Alan Pardew Gets 8yr Extension

alanpardewA positive sign of things to come or an over-confident move?  They seem to be the 2 biggest trends to come out of recent news that Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has been signed to an incredible 8 year extension.

Pardew took over the helm in December 2010 after former manager Chris Hughton was shown the door.  Since that time the club has taken on a much more positive direction and has seen some major signings including Demba Ba and  Papiss Cisse.

“I was a bit shocked when it was suggested that an eight year contract was on the table,” said Pardew. “It hasn’t quite sunk in, if I’m being honest, that the club have given me that kind of contract.” (source)

Former Crystal Palace teammate Ian Wright spoke very positively of the extension, telling ESPN, “Pards was never the most blessed footballer technically, he was always a guy who had opinions and thoughts on how the game should be played, so it doesn’t surprise me to see him doing so well,”

I see this move as a positive step up by owner Mike Ashley and an indication that the club are ready to make a serious push to be once again, one of the top clubs in the English Premier League.
