  1. Dainius Zubrus or Colin White might end up being NJ Devils salary cap casualties

    Oct 3, 2010, 10:15 PM EDT

    While the San Jose Sharks and Chicago Blackhawks faced some serious salary cap hurdles this summer, they’re both in fine shape now. Even the Boston Bruins seem like they might be OK thanks to Marc Savard’s concussion problems. The one team that faces the biggest challenge is the New Jersey Devils. Rich Chere discussed the…

  2. Early preseason recaps – October 3rd

    Oct 3, 2010, 8:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Today presents the last “full” day of preseason games and a couple of those contests started a little earlier than usual. Here are two quick recaps of the first matches. Nashville 3, Washington 0 Plus: Pekka Rinne earned a 22-save shutout. Joel Ward scored two goals while Cal O’Reilly put together one goal and one…

  3. Mike Comrie faces lawsuit over missed car payments

    Oct 3, 2010, 8:00 PM EDT

    Mike Comrie isn’t one of the NHL’s highest paid players by any means, but chances are he rubs shoulders with some big spenders in his role as Mr. Hillary Duff. That lifestyle might be catching up to Comrie a bit, though, as the Ottawa Sun reports that he’s being sued regarding missed car payments. The…

  4. Report: Kyle Wellwood signs with KHL team Atlant Moscow Oblast

    Oct 3, 2010, 7:10 PM EDT

    On Saturday we passed along word that the Phoenix Coyotes decided to let Kyle Wellwood walk from his pro tryout. We also pleaded with people to hold their fat jokes until he signed with a hockey team, whether that team is in Europe or the NHL. Well, it looks like we can break out those…

    Oct 3, 2010, 6:22 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The road to repeat for the Chicago Blackhawks was already set to be a difficult one given all the roster turnover during the off-season. Now the team will be dealing with the loss of key defenseman Brian Campbell for the next four to five weeks with a knee sprain will make at least the start…

  6. Former Canucks prospect Michael Grabner waived by Florida

    Oct 3, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

    At one point in his career, Michael Grabner was seen as the next big thing as far as prospects go. Coming up in the Canucks organization where fans can get a bit too eager about things can often exacerbate the situation, but Grabner was always viewed as a future big gun. This summer, he was…

  7. Derek Boogaard may face NHL discipline for spearing Chris Neil's man-parts

    Oct 3, 2010, 3:45 PM EDT

    It turns out that Mike Cammalleri wasn’t the only guy getting wild with his stick last night. The NHL could be busy taking a look at last night’s game between Ottawa and the New York Rangers thanks to the frisky stick work of Rangers enforcer Derek Boogaard. Boogaard was given a five-minute major for spearing…

    The hopes and dreams of many Vancouver Canucks fans may have been dashed today.

    Sweet hockey monkey, today’s the last full day of the NHL preseason. There will still be preseason games played in Europe featuring NHL teams taking on some of the European elite teams, but for those still in North America, today is it. Real hockey awaits later this week. Until then (then being Thursday) you’ll have…

  10. Did Mike Cammalleri have just cause to go after Nino Niederreiter?

    Oct 3, 2010, 11:33 AM EDT

    Last night we told you about Mike Cammalleri’s bad night in Quebec City where he seemingly went bonkers going after Islanders rookie Nino Niederreiter and ultimately slashing him in the ankle. Cammalleri was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct for the action and Niederreiter left the game with a bruised ankle. Cammalleri isn’t…

    Here are the rest of the preseason recaps from action last night. If you’re missing the goods from earlier in the day from Europe, don’t worry we got to that already. Columbus 4 – Atlanta 3 Plus: Maybe there’s something to this Nikita Filatov kid after all. Two more goals in the preseason certainly helps…

    Florida Panthers 2010 first round pick Erik Gudbranson is getting his wish. At the very least, he’s getting his chance to prove to the Panthers that he can stick in the NHL. The Florida Sun Sentinel’s Harvey Fialkov gives us the scoop on the news that Gudbranson will sign an entry level contract with the…

  13. Mike Cammalleri could be facing a suspension after ugly slashing incident against Islanders

    Oct 2, 2010, 10:00 PM EDT

    We’re going to have ourselves some controversy even before the season gets underway. Tonight in Quebec City, Montreal’s Mike Cammalleri lost his head a little bit trying to goad Islanders rookie Nino Niederreiter into a fight after taking exception to a play earlier in the game. What happened saw Cammalleri high-sticking, cross checking, and then…

  14. Flames injury woes continue; Moss and Kotalik out indefinitely

    Oct 2, 2010, 8:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    If you thought the Calgary Flames’ off-season was difficult on the fans, then the preseason has been a vile curse from beyond the grave as far as injuries go. While the team has seen Olli Jokinen and Rene Bourque get a little banged up, Matthew Stajan separated his shoulder, Daymond Langkow continues to be out…

  15. Early preseason quick recaps – October 2nd

    Oct 2, 2010, 7:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    A couple of NHL teams got their preseason fun started early today by our schedule, mostly because they played their games in Europe. San Jose and Boston each did their part to spread the good word of the NHL to some local favorites in Ireland and Germany, and one team nearly did their ultimate part…

  16. 2010-11 NHL season preview: Florida Panthers

    Oct 2, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    Last season: (32-37-13, 77 points, 5th in Southeast Division, 14th in Eastern Conference) The Panthers seem like they’re in a perpetual holding pattern. It was only fitting that the team was bad enough to earn the third pick in the draft, which fell just short of earning them a potential star such as Taylor Hall…

  18. 2010-11 NHL season preview: Carolina Hurricanes

    Oct 2, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Last season: (35-37-10, 80 points, 3rd in Southeast Division, 11th in Eastern Conference) It seems the Hurricanes alternate good seasons and bad seasons. One season they charge deep into the playoffs (or even win the Cup), the next they don’t even make the playoffs. In 2009-10, they had one of those bad seasons. Head coach: Paul Maurice…

  19. 2010-11 NHL season preview: Atlanta Thrashers

    Oct 2, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Last season: (35-34-13, 83 points, 2nd in Southeast Division, 10th in Eastern Conference) Considering that the Thrashers got rid of Ilya Kovalchuk and Kari Lehtonen, it’s a solid testament to the team that they actually stayed in playoff contention until (just about) the very end. Still, it’s probably best that former GM Don Waddell, who…

  20. Poll: Who will win the Pacific Division?

    Oct 2, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    The San Jose Sharks were a steamroller of sorts last season in what turned out to be one of the most competitive divisions in the NHL. With the surprise run by the Phoenix Coyotes as well as the rise of the LA Kings, despite the Sharks coming away as the top team in the division…
