    After the NHLPA decided not to come to a decision yesterday on whether to exervise it’s option on whether to extend the CBA, there was some concern that they would vote against the increase in the salary cap and further splinter the players. Instead, word has come down today that the CBA has been extended…

    Pat Quinn decided today to leave his post as the Edmonton Oilers head coach, handing over the job to assistant coach – and former New York Rangers head coach – Tom Renney. Quinn will work in an “advisory” role going forward, reports TSN. This isn’t particularly shocking news, really. At the far-from-tender age of 67,…

    It seems like every summer people complain about humidity, get bad farmer tans and wonder if Scott Niedermayer will retire. If Orange County Register reporter Eric Stephens is correct, the talented defenseman is expected to announce his retirement today. I must admit that I had little clue that Niedermayer was leaning toward hanging up his…

Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review has the story, which states that the team hasn’t released the salary details just yet. Left wing…

    Comments Off

    Not exactly “big changes” but the Nashville Predators are continuing on their path of moving forward with a bit of a different roster next season. Of course, this decision doesn’t exactly alter the roster all that much. Denis Grebeshkov appeared in just four games for the Predators last season after being traded to Nashville. After…

    Comments Off

    Things already weren’t looking very good for Derek “Boogeyman” Boogaard, but now it seems near-official that the fearsome fighter’s time with the Minnesota Wild is up. Michael Russo reports that the Wild acquired rough-and-tumble forward Brad Staubitz from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for the Wild’s 2010 fifth-round draft pick. It won’t make a…

    The Ottawa Senators face another summer of trade/free agency rumors and there seems to be a little fire to go with the smoke. TSN reports that Senators GM Bryan Murray confirmed that while Jason Spezza didn’t go out of his way to request a trade, he wouldn’t “object” to one either. That’s like two horny…

    Jun 21, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Mike Modano’s history with the Dallas Stars franchise runs deep. After all, the all-time American great’s experiences with the club predate the team’s existence in the Lone Star state, as many recall the images of a mulleted, Chipmunk-teethed Modano being a No. 1 pick for the Minnesota North Stars. To say he would be missed…

According to Damian Cristodero of the St. Petersburg Times, newly minted GM Steve Yzerman assured Lecavalier that the underachieving center is part…

  19. Boston Bruins set to play games in Ireland, Czech Republic

    Jun 21, 2010, 12:20 PM EDT

    For the first time in more than 50 years, the Boston Bruins look like they’ll take a European vacation. From exhibition games in Ireland to two season-opening matches in Prague, the team might be a little jet-lagged to start the 2010-11 season, but my guess is most of them will find the trip worthwhile.

    There are all kinds of rumors of nefarious things happening to the Stanley Cup once it falls in the clutches of its victors.
