    Comments Off

    It appears all of this hand wringing over a potential Nashville and Philadelphia trade has been for naught. CSN Philly is reporting that it Nashville will most likely not be trading Hamhuis.

    Comments Off

    We’ll just have to wait until the playoffs to get that Sidney Crosby – Ryan Miller rematch everyone is dying to see.

    Mar 2, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Here’s an update on the Dan Hamhuis to Philadelphia trade rumors: he hasn’t been traded yet, and there’s no deal in place. So essentially, we’re in the same boat as before. Last night, a flurry of activity led many to believe that a deal was close to being made that would send Ryan Parent to…

  5. Kris Versteeg trying to ignore trade talk

    Mar 2, 2010, 9:15 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Kris Versteeg will be getting some attention at the trade deadline, but it’s certainly not because of how great he’s been playing lately. The right wing has just one point in his last eight games and hasn’t scored a goal since January 9th. For the season he has just 13 goals in 58 games and…

    Mar 2, 2010, 8:45 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    It’s been a tough season for Marek Svatos and it looks like he’s on his way out of Colorado. The right winger is in the midst of a two-season slump and it’s only getting worse; for some making $2 million and scheduled to be a free agent this summer, that’s usually a sign he’ll be…

    Rink to Rink is a daily recap of all the previous day’s NHL action. Just one game last night; twelve tonight. Red Wings 3, Colorado Avalanche 2: If there was any fear that there would be a letdown in hockey action immediately following the Olympic games, well the Red Wings and Avalanhce did their best…

    Mar 1, 2010, 10:42 PM EDT

    Until Tomas Kaberle changes his mind at the last minute, we’ll just go under the assumption he’s staying in Toronto. Kaberle’s agent told reporters today that he maintains he will not waive his no trade clause: “Nothing has changed,” Curran said yesterday, denying reports his client has submitted a list of teams to which he…

  9. Hamhuis to Flyers rumors abound but nothing has changed, really

    Mar 1, 2010, 10:18 PM EDT

    As expected, a flurry of activity tonight surrounding Dan Hamhuis, as rumors are starting to fly that the Nashville Predators are working on a trade with Philadelphia. Of course, in these days where most all sports news is broken via Twitter, we get wild speculation and guessing, sometimes even from team beat writers. Comcast Sportsnet…

  10. The Winter Classic at the Death Star? The horror!!

    Mar 1, 2010, 7:02 PM EDT

    A few months ago I wrote an article on my old blog about the possibility of a Winter Classic being held at Cowboys Stadium. The post was based on some murmurs that the Cowboys had talked with NHL officials at a possible outdoor hockey game, although those inquiries had never been truly confirmed. Until now.…

  11. 2010 NHL Trade Deadline: Flyers making room for possible trade; Hamhuis, anyone?

    Mar 1, 2010, 5:51 PM EDT

    All season long the Philadelphia Flyers have been involved in trade rumors, from goaltender help to forward depth to even the need for a new defenseman. Only one problem: they have had zero cap room. Well, the past few days the Flyers have made a series of moves to free up cap room, waiving Riley…

  13. Russian columnist accuses Canadians of drug use

    Mar 1, 2010, 4:31 PM EDT

    It’s one thing to feel disappointment after your hockey team fails to medal, especially when many expected at least a silver. It’s one thing to walk away angry after a wholly disappointing effort. Even Russian president Dmitri A. Medvedev was angry over his country’s weak performance. “Those who are responsible for training for the Olympics…

  14. 2010 NHL Trade Deadline: To the surprise of no one, Senators targeting defensemen

    Mar 1, 2010, 3:57 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    To say that the Ottawa Senators are in third place in the Eastern Conference is surprising is an understatement. Yet there they are, winners of 14 of their last 16 games and playing the best hockey in Ottawa since 2008. What’s abnormal about their standing in the East stems mostly from the fact that the…

  15. Rick DiPietro day-to-day with left knee injury

    Mar 1, 2010, 2:49 PM EDT

    It seems the 15-year man is having some issues with his knee. Again. Rick Dipietro missed over a year with the New York  Islanders due to multiple knee surgeries and has played in just 13 NHL games since 2008. He returned this season and has had some success, with a 2.60 goals-against average and a…

    Mar 1, 2010, 2:21 PM EDT

    Today has been a day of teams slightly overpaying for second and third line players, in an effort not to lose them to free agency. Earlier, Steve Ott was signed by the Dallas Stars for nearly $3 million per season for for four years, and now we have the news that the Calgary Flames have…

    Look, I understand the rules the International Olympic Committee has in place. In a competition that pits the world’s best athletes against each other, the last thing anyone wants if for someone to cheat.

    So much for some goaltender zaniness in Washington. Of course, there’s still some time left for the right deal to come along. For now though, it appears the Capitals are set in goal after calling up Semyon Varlamov and sending Michal Neuvirth down to the Hershey Bears, according to Washington Post beat writer Tarik El-Bashir:…

  21. Report: Steve Ott Agrees To Four-Year Contract Extension

    Mar 1, 2010, 9:27 AM EDT

    This should be interesting. For the past month or so, word has been that the Dallas Stars and Steve Ott were nowhere close on contract-extension talks, as Ott wanted something close to Sean Avery money (four years, $16 million). With the Dallas financial situation the way it is, it was questionable whether they could sign…

  22. Alex Auld Thrilled To Be A New York Ranger

    Mar 1, 2010, 9:13 AM EDT

  23. Should NHL Players Go To Sochi In 2014?

    Mar 1, 2010, 8:49 AM EDT

    It’s tough to argue that the break is good for the league. Sure, it gives teams a chance to heal up from a long season of wear and tear but hockey is not like football; you can’t just take a two-week break and hope to play at the exact same level you were heading into…

    Hockey is a noble, brutal, graceful, violent and incredible game and it’s easily the most exciting sport to watch and experience. The human drama surrounding the sport is just about as interesting as the game on the ice, and there is no better or exciting sport to follow on a day-to-day basis. It’s a great…

  25. 2010 NHL Trade Deadline: Tomas Kaberle Plans On Remaining In Toronto

    Mar 1, 2010, 12:02 AM EDT

    Is it just me, or has Tomas Kaberle been involved in trade rumors his entire career. It’s only natural, considering he’s a high-quality player employed by a team that has struggled mightily and has not made the playoffs since before the NHL lockout. This season has been no exception. With the Maple Leafs hard up…
