  1. Which teams are the most likely candidates to 'break through' in 2010-11?

    Sep 6, 2010, 5:40 PM EDT

    Late last week Mike Chen of From the Rink gave his three picks for possible “breakout” teams for the 2010-11 season. I personally agree that the Tampa Bay Lightning and Atlanta Thrashers show some promise, but while it cannot get much worse for the Columbus Blue Jackets, they don’t scream “breakout” to me. (Then again,…

  2. Yzerman and Stamkos not worried about a contract extension just yet

    Sep 4, 2010, 10:57 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    While we’ve paid more than enough attention to the players that are restricted free agents this year, next year one of the biggest names in the NHL is set to become a restricted free agent. Steven Stamkos of the Lightning is in the final year of his entry-level contract and after scoring 51 goals last…

  3. NHL making waves and winning fans over through social media

    Sep 2, 2010, 1:33 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The relationship between players and fans has always been one of a curious nature. Back in the day, the only way fans could interact with players was either from their seat at a game and yelling to/at them or waiting for them after the game to grab an autograph. The times, they are a-changing. With…

  4. The free agent market proves to be unfriendly to veteran NHL talent

    Aug 13, 2010, 9:15 AM EDT

    This off-season’s free agent market, in case you haven’t noticed, hasn’t been all that friendly to those veterans seeking new employment in the NHL. Both superstars and role players alike are finding out that the job market in the NHL is almost as difficult as the job market is for regular Americans and Canadians alike.…

  6. 2010 NHL free agency: Ducks re-sign Teemu Selanne

    Aug 9, 2010, 3:37 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    While it was rumored last week that Teemu Selanne would be rejoining the Anaheim Ducks for one more year, Selanne himself made it official that he was coming back by posting it on the Anaheim Ducks website himself. Ducks Fans — After thinking about it for the last few months, I’ve decided to return to…

  7. Report: Teemu Selanne to re-sign with Anaheim; Paul Kariya to join him?

    Aug 6, 2010, 5:03 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    If you’ve been wondering what will happen with Ducks star and Finnish legend Teemu Selanne, it appears that you can stop wondering right away and prepare for at least one more season of the Finnish Flash. TSN, via Finnish magazine Sport Report, tells us that Selanne will be coming back to the NHL for at…

  8. Ducks sign 2009 first round pick Kyle Palmieri

    Aug 3, 2010, 7:21 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    While the Anaheim Ducks deal with what’s turning into an ugly contract situation with restricted free agent Bobby Ryan, they’re going about their own business and putting some pressure on Ryan to get into camp. The team announced the signing of 2009 first round pick Kyle Palmieri to a three-year entry-level contract. Palmieri is a…

  9. Anaheim Ducks trade James Wisniewski to NY Islanders for conditional 2011 third rounder

    Jul 30, 2010, 8:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    When I read that the Ducks avoided arbitration by signing James Wisniewski to a one-year, $3.25 million deal, I wondered how the cash-strapped Anaheim Ducks would really act. It didn’t take long for the team to show its penny pinching ways, as Ducks GM Bryan Murray decided to trade the defenseman to the New York…

  11. Looking back at the most scandalous offer sheet dramas in NHL history

    Jul 14, 2010, 6:10 PM EDT

    I’ve stated this quite a bit the last few days, but it’s surprising NHL teams are so reluctant to send promising players offer sheets. I imagine there’s a lot of “Golden Rule” justification for staying away (“What if I’m in their shoes?,” general managers would shout), but … wouldn’t Bobby Ryan be worth a few…

  12. Poacher's delight: This summer's best targets for offer sheets

    Jul 13, 2010, 2:45 PM EDT

    Signing a player to an offer sheet is a risky, flawed endeavor. For one thing, the opposing team could match the offer sheet, like the Chicago Blackhawks did when the San Jose Sharks went after defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson. It can be a mistake even if a team lands the player, as the more money you…

  14. Why restricted free agents don't see much action

    Jul 2, 2010, 9:31 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    So you’re a bit disheartened that things have slowed down on Day 2 of the free agency frenzy and you’re still wondering when Ilya Kovalchuk is going to either come to his senses or run away and hide with a huge contract. That’s understandable, but what gives with the lack of action for all of…

  15. Top 5 most likely NHL destinations for Ilya Kovalchuk (plus the KHL)

    Jun 30, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Almost a month ago, I wrote a series of posts about Ilya Kovalchuk’s impending free agent status. In the first one, I advised NHL general managers to be careful about throwing big money at Kovalchuk. I followed that up with early speculation on where the talented but pricey left wing might land. With NHL free…

  16. 2010 NHL Entry Draft: Anaheim Ducks draft preview

    Visit NBC’s Draft Headquarters for our complete coverage of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. The Ducks are looking to retool a bit after a down season, and find themselves needing players at every position for their system. The Ducks have always been a bit of a defensive organization lately, highlighted with some supremely talented scoring…

  17. Sporting News names Sidney Crosby best athlete under 25, but NHL has plenty more

    Jun 18, 2010, 8:20 PM EDT

    So, the Sporting News named Sidney Crosby the best athlete under the age of 25. Athletes were judged on major stats; championships to which they’d made major contributions; buzz factor; and age. Crosby, who is 22 years old, was ranked No. 1, followed by Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic (24); Kevin Durant of the…

  18. Expect a drastically different Pacific division next season

    Jun 16, 2010, 5:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    It’s safe to say that just about every NHL team will see at least moderate changes this summer. Yet, when I was putting together some free agent articles (not to mention thumbing through posts about ownership changes around the league), it dawned on me that the Pacific division – in particular – will look very,…

  19. Teemu Selanne considers return, unless the Ducks go in 'rebuild' mode

    Jun 16, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Year after year, it seems like the Anaheim Ducks face questions about the possible retirement of Teemu Selanne and Scott Niedermayer. This time around, it sounds like Selanne will wait on the Ducks’ decisions. A Finnish daily newspaper reports that the all-time goal scoring leader among Finnish-born hockey players wants to make sure that the…

  20. Free Agent All-Star team: Restricted

    Jun 14, 2010, 1:10 PM EDT

    In the last post, I put together a First All-Star team of unrestricted free agents. Though restricted free agents tend to attract less attention, there could be some intriguing situations. While I broke down the last list of players into forward positions (left wing, center, right wing), this time I’ll just choose three forwards, plus…

    With the playoffs just a few hours away, this is surely a great time to be a hockey fan. That being said, there are fourteen teams on the outside looking in. No doubt about it, they must feel more than a little jealous and probably are asking themselves what went wrong (OK, they’re probably asking…

  23. Once-mighty Ducks have reasons for optimism

    Mar 16, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Everyone from Ducks beat reporter Helene Elliot to PHT’s own Brandon Worley have written off Anaheim making the playoffs because, frankly, they don’t have much of a chance. At all. It’s natural for fans to be disappointed with a failed playoff run, especially since the Ducks managed to sneak in last year and make a lot of…
