  1. 2010-11 NHL season preview: New York Islanders

    Sep 28, 2010, 11:30 AM EST

    Comments Off

    Last season: (34-37-11, 79 points, 5th in Atlantic Division,13th in Eastern Conference) The team was scrappy enough, but really there wasn’t much to write home about beyond an acceptable season for John Tavares. Head coach: Scott Gordon hasn’t had much to work with, but will three failed seasons go unpunished? I don’t know if he’s…

  2. 2010-11 NHL season preview: Philadelphia Flyers

    Sep 28, 2010, 10:00 AM EST

    Last season: (41-35-6, 88 points, 3rd in Atlantic Division, 7th in Eastern Conference) You probably heard the story already if you’re a big hockey fan, but it’s still pretty amazing to think about it. The Flyers went from needing a failed Olli Jokinen shootout attempt on the last day of the season to eek into…

  3. The PHT Nightcap: Monday, September 27th

    Even in the depressingly hockey-free summer, we expect to be a productive bunch here at Pro Hockey Talk. Sometimes it might be difficult to follow our pace. We understand that. For that reason, whenever we can, we’ll put all of the day’s stories in one convenient post called the PHT Nightcap. Enjoy, hockey fans. Season…

  4. Preseason quick recaps: September 27th

    Sep 28, 2010, 12:40 AM EST

    Here is a rundown of another light night of preseason games. Toronto 5, Buffalo 4 Plus: Both teams had at least one player who scored two goals. Phil Kessel and Nikolai Kulemin did it for the Maple Leafs while Nathan Gerbe did it for the Sabres. Each team scored a power-play goal, even though there…

  5. 2010-11 NHL season preview: Pittsburgh Penguins

    Sep 27, 2010, 11:15 PM EST

    Last season: (47-28-7, 101 points, 2nd in Atlantic Division, 4th in Eastern Conference) It’s a little bit much to expect an NHL team to make it to the Stanley Cup finals three seasons in a row, so the beauty of the Penguins’ 2009-10 campaign is in the eye of the beholder. Evgeni Malkin and Marc-Andre…

  6. Kari Lehtonen fights groin injury; should the Stars find some goalie insurance?

    Sep 27, 2010, 10:30 PM EST

    If you were to choose a goalie for one game, you could do worse than Kari Lehtonen. I’m not saying that he’s a premier goalie in the league at this point in his career, but he’s a big, talented netminder who fills up a lot of the net and also comes with the pedigree of…

  7. Roster cuts for Monday, Sept. 27

    Sep 27, 2010, 9:30 PM EST

    Comments Off

    Roster cuts aren’t exactly the most interesting thing on the planet. After all, aside from teams burying salary cap hits in the minors (as was the case with Wade Redden and Cristobal Huet), most of these players have been mere blips on the hockey radar. Some are young players who aren’t quite ready for the…

  8. The Florida Panthers might be in rebuild mode, but Tomas Vokoun is focused on present

    Sep 27, 2010, 7:50 PM EST

    Tomas Vokoun might not be a “hockey household name” but he warms many a hockey nerd’s heart even though he toils away in obscurity as a member of the Florida Panthers. He might not get many wins (a stat, like baseball’s runs, that bothers geeky bloggers and stat-crunchers quite a bit), but even Vokoun is…

  9. It's official: Chicago sends Cristobal Huet to the Swiss league

    Sep 27, 2010, 6:40 PM EST

    Comments Off

    One of the worst-kept secrets in the NHL is finally out there in that open, as the Chicago Blackhawks officially moved expensive goalie Cristobal Huet off of their roster today, according to Chris Kuc. Meanwhile, veteran goaltender Cristobal Huet cleared waivers and has officially been loaned to Fribourg-Gotteron SA of the Swiss National League A.…

  10. Preseason Schedule for Monday, Sept. 27

    It’s a light night of preseason games again, with only three contests this Monday night.

Mon, 9/27 Buffalo Sabres Toronto…

  11. So maybe there's something to the Langenbrunner to Colorado speculation

    Sep 27, 2010, 5:53 PM EST

    Comments Off

    On Friday, we told you about idle speculation stirring out of Denver from The Denver Post’s Adrian Dater that in his wildest of pipe dreams, the Avalanche would look into Devils right wing Jamie Langenbrunner to help fill the hole left by concussion-ailed winger Peter Mueller. As it turns out, idle speculation can sometimes have…

  12. What will the Islanders do to replace Mark Streit?

    Sep 27, 2010, 5:10 PM EST

    Comments Off

    With Mark Streit out for the next six months for the Islanders after suffering a torn rotator cuff and torn labrum in his shoulder, the question now turns to what Isles GM Garth Snow will do to replace him on the roster. The Islanders present a fascinating situation for how to replace your best defenseman.…

  13. Capitals sign Matt Hendricks to a one-year contract

    Sep 27, 2010, 3:12 PM EST

    Don’t ever let someone tell you that training camp isn’t important. For Washington Capitals tryout candidate Matt Hendricks, it’s turned out to be a great thing. After scoring a hat trick last Wednesday in a preseason game against the Blue Jackets, Hendricks has parlayed that game as well as his overall effort in camp into…

  14. Rangers' Wade Redden clears waivers, heads to AHL

    Sep 27, 2010, 12:51 PM EST

    To the surprise of virtually no one, New York Rangers recently waived defenseman Wade Redden has cleared waivers and will be sent to AHL camp with the Hartford Wolfpack. With that, Redden’s $6.5 million cap hit disappears to the AHL and the race for the spot on the Rangers blue line is on. With the…

  15. 2010-2011 NHL season preview: Toronto Maple Leafs

    Sep 27, 2010, 11:23 AM EST

    Comments Off

    Last season: (30-38-14, 74 points, 5th in Northeast Division, 15th in Eastern Conference) It was another tough season for the Leafs, this time finishing with the second-worst record in the NHL. They weren’t able to reap the rewards of that thanks to trading their first-round pick to Boston in the Phil Kessel trade. Don’t know if…

  16. 2010-2011 NHL season preview: Ottawa Senators

    Sep 27, 2010, 9:30 AM EST

    Last season: (44-32-6, 94 points, 2nd in Northeast Division, 5th in Eastern Conference) If anyone thought the Senators would be fifth in the East at the start of last season, we all would’ve happily called them liars and been done with it. Instead, the Sens took advantage of well-timed win streaks and rode the goaltending hot…

  17. Preseason quick recaps – September 26th

    Sep 27, 2010, 2:16 AM EST

    Comments Off

    It was a light night in preseason action and somehow the Toronto Maple Leafs didn’t make an appearance. Tonight’s big game occurred in Edmonton. Big being a relative term considering it’s a preseason game. Detroit 5 – NY Rangers 3 Plus: Brian Rafalski pretended like it was the Olympics once again scoring a goal and…

  18. Islanders invite five players to camp on tryouts

    Sep 27, 2010, 1:39 AM EST

    Comments Off

    While the Islanders are busy dealing with how to handle Mark Streit’s shoulder injury that will keep him out for up to six months, they’ve added a few players to their training camp roster on professional tryouts. NHL veterans Manny Legace, Dean McAmmond, Anders Eriksson, as well as minor leaguers Krys Kolanos and Joel Martin.…

  19. 2010-2011 NHL season preview: Montreal Canadiens

    Last season: (39-33-10, 88 points, 4th in Northeast Division, 8th in Eastern Conference) In what was a highly frustrating regular season for fans, edging into the playoffs in the final days of the season turned into a miraculous run through the playoffs to the conference finals. Head coach: Jacques Martin begins his second season with…

  20. Brian Burke: It's not automatic Jeff Finger will be sent down for salary space

    Sep 26, 2010, 11:20 PM EST

    Comments Off

    A few teams have some salary cap issues to address before the season starts. The Rangers have already gotten a jump on things by putting Wade Redden on waivers. Other teams, like the Toronto Maple Leafs, still have some questions of their own to answer as far as what they’ll do to get under the…
