    Comments Off

    One of the great things about the AHL – and minor league hockey, in general – is how different the games can be from the ones you’ll see in the NHL. That being said, one would prefer the large group of potential NHLers to play by as many of the same rules as possible. NHL.com…

    Pre-season NHL action isn’t usually something to get overly excited about.

    Comments Off

    Matt Stajan has had a rough couple of days.

    Comments Off

    Bruins forward Marc Savard certainly isn’t lacking intrigue. After being held off of the ice during the start of training camp due to lingering effects from post-concussion syndrome, worry grew about just what Savard’s condition actually was. After all, he came back seemingly early to rejoin the Bruins in the playoffs last season and now…

    Comments Off

    The New York Islanders announced that they signed first round pick Nino Niederreiter to an entry-level contract today. Financial details haven’t been revealed yet, but there’s a rookie maximum anyway, so there are limitations on the kind of money that can be thrown around. Here is more about Niederreiter from the Islanders. The Islanders selected…

    Sep 21, 2010, 3:20 PM EST

    Comments Off

    As a holdover who many criticize, Tom Poti won’t ease many of the concerns people have about the Washington Capitals defense. That being said, the team decided to extend Poti’s contract, keeping him in the fold for two years after his old deal expires this season. TSN’s Bob MacKenzie reports that the deal will pay…

  15. Analyzing the trend of 'skimping' on goaltending

    Sep 21, 2010, 1:20 PM EST

    Comments Off

    I firmly believe that there isn’t a “magic bullet” or specific formula when it comes to building a winning hockey team. Simply put, the NHL changes too much year-to-year in the post-lockout era to claim that there’s one way to skin that Stanley Cup cat. Before I expand on this point, though, let me point…

    Picture, if you will, a world where the NHLs most popular team in northern California would hit the ice being introduced as, “Your San Jose Rubber Puckies!” That sounds rather insane, I know, but it almost came to be. Of course, they also might’ve been known as the San Jose Salty Dogs or the San…

  18. It's "put up or shut up" time for Habs' Benoit Pouliot

    When Benoit Pouliot was traded by the Minnesota Wild to the Montreal Canadiens for Guillaume Latendresse, it was viewed as a deal that sent team headaches going in each direction.

    Sep 21, 2010, 8:00 AM EST

    If you thought that the easiest way to make friends with the fans in Philadelphia as a member of the Flyers was to punch players on the opposing team in the face you’d be completely right.

  20. Flames forward Matthew Stajan is tired of hearing about Dion Phaneuf

    Sep 20, 2010, 11:44 PM EST

    As it turns out, being one of “the other guys” in a blockbuster trade featuring one major star isn’t quite as glamorous as you’d think. Last season, the Toronto Maple Leafs sent a package of players to the Calgary Flames to obtain defenseman Dion Phaneuf. Matthew Stajan, Niklas Hagman, and Ian White all headed to…
