  1. Mike Green's case for the Norris Trophy

    Mar 29, 2010, 2:57 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    We’re big fans of Mike Green here at Pro Hockey Talk. We’ve talked about how his numbers compare to some of the greatest all-time defensemen, and the PHT readers all agree that Green is the best offensive defenseman currently playing in the NHL. But is it enough for a Norris Trophy? Mike Brophy of Sportsnet.ca…

  2. NHL working on sending Coyotes to Winnipeg?

    Mar 29, 2010, 2:08 PM EDT

    A story that at first seemed to be nothing but conjecture and complete speculation has turned into something much, much more substantial. The Phoenix Business Journal is reporting that, according to unnamed sources, the NHL is working with Toronto Billionaire David Thomson to possibly send the Phoenix Coyotes franchise back to Winnipeg. Two sources with…

  3. Don't forget about Henrik Sedin and the Canucks

    Mar 29, 2010, 1:48 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    With everyone’s focus on Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin and their East Coast race for the Rocket Richard trophy, it seems that Henrik Sedin and incredible season he’s having in Vancouver is going just a bit unnoticed. Crosby, Ovechkin and even Steven Stamkos will fight to the last game for the goals lead in the…

  4. Injuries put Rangers' playoff hopes in doubt

    The New York Rangers are headed into a big game Tuesday, and they could be as much as six points behind 8th place Boston. Unfortunately, they’ll likely be without Ryan Callahan and Sean Avery who were both injured in the past week. From Larry Brooks of the New York Post: “Sean has been playing his…

    With New Hampshire finishing up their NCAA tournament a bit prematurely, the Ottawa Senators have signed winger Bobby Butler. According to Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun: Butler, a native of Marlborough, Mass., is a Hobey Baker Top 10 Finalist and helped lead the UNH Wildcats to the Hockey East season championship. The 6-foot, 185-pounder…

    Comments Off

    The best hockey player in USA history should have at least five more games before he has to decide on whether to return next season or not. According to Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News, Mike Modano will skate on Wednesday, practice on Thursday and then plans on playing on Friday at home against…

  7. Flyers targeting young goaltender this summer?

    Mar 29, 2010, 11:32 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    According Anthony SanFilippo, the Philadelphia Flyers will be targeting on getting a young goaltender this summer. Shocking, right? According to his “anonymous source”: “It’s already been decided that our No. 1 priority for next season is to get a goalie. We have to go out and get that player and commit to him as our…

  8. Should Dan Carcillo be suspended for high stick?

    Mar 29, 2010, 11:11 AM EDT

    If the NHL is just as intent on punishing dumb and reckless plays that result in injury, just as much as they want to singly out intentional and dirty ones, then it’s possible that Dan Carcillo could be facing a suspension by the NHL. At the 15:14 mark of the third period, Carcillo went after…

  9. Capitals fans need a reality check

    Mar 29, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    It’s amazing what is happening in Washington. The Capitals and Alex Ovechkin have been able to turn the D.C. area into a thriving, intense and absolutely crazy hockey town. In fact, it’s generally considered that the Verizon Center is the most exciting place to watch a hockey game. The fans are loud and boisterous, and…

  10. Red Wings best team in the West?

    Mar 29, 2010, 9:45 AM EDT

    When you look at the Eastern Conference, it’s easy to say who the best teams in the conference are. The Washington Capitals, Pittsburgh Penguins, New Jersey Devils and Buffalo Sabres are all firmly entrenched on a tier well above the rest of the Eastern teams. Yet when it comes to the West, that’s a tougher…

    The Sharks may have found their goaltender for next season if Nabokov departs. Maybe.

  12. Goal of the Night: Rene Bourque

    Mar 29, 2010, 8:00 AM EDT

    I was tempted to go with Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin as they went back and forth for the NHL scoring lead, but I can’t turn down the chance to feature a great spin-o-rama backhanded goal.

    With Miami of Ohio knocking off Michigan in double overtime after a dubiously early whistle prevented a goal for the Wolverines, the NCAA Frozen Four is set to go on April 8. Here are the two games that will be played that Thursday. And just for fun, I will scour the Internet to give you…

  16. The outlook for the 'rest' of the West

    Mar 28, 2010, 10:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Earlier this evening I discussed the five Eastern Conference teams who are battling for the last three playoff spots. The Western Conference has a similar situation in its bottom playoff ranks, although those teams are notably stronger. (Also, Calgary is the only squad with a realistic chance to make the four Western underdogs sweat for a…

  18. Analyzing the race for the East's bottom 3 seeds

    Mar 28, 2010, 8:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Eastern Conference’s lower seed situation is murky to say the least. The bottom three seeds could go to any combination of Montreal, Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta or the Rangers. Some teams have better chances than others, but the 6th-seed Canadiens are only 6 points ahead of 10th place New York. With this muddy picture in…

  19. Crosby, Ovechkin continue see-saw Richard race

    Mar 28, 2010, 6:55 PM EDT

    It’s almost as if Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin are playing some sort of telepathic game of goal scoring “H-O-R-S-E.” The two seem especially likely to score when the other did so earlier in a given day. Really, the Rocket Richard trophy lead is as fleeting as an encounter with Kaiser Soze. Ovechkin scored his 46th…

  20. Tonight's remaining games

    Comments Off

    While the Maple Leafs – Penguins game and the irrelevant Oilers – Blues contest are already in progress, the remaining three games are fairly big. Some factor into playoff positioning, while one can either stop the bleeding of a now-playoff-threatened team or continue a troubling drop from contention. New Jersey Devils (44-25-5, 93 pts) at…
