    Jun 22, 2010, 11:40 AM EDT

    Despite there being at least some doubts that the team could bring the villainous forward back, the Pittsburgh Penguins have agreed to a three-year contract extension with rambunctious forward Matt Cooke. 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…

  6. More on the Boston-Columbus trade rumor

    Jun 18, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    Our story yesterday on the rumored trade proposal between Columbus and Boston caused a bit of stir and if nothing else left people scratching their heads a bit. Before writing up the story, I double checked with my source on the information he was giving me and then posted the proposed trade that would leave…

    Jun 17, 2010, 7:47 PM EDT

    I’d like to preface this post with a quick disclaimer: right now, this can only be classified as a rumor, although one that certainly seems to have legs. Proceed with caution. Pro Hockey Talk has learned of a possible trade in the works, with the Boston Bruins dealing Blake Wheeler and Marc Savard to the…

  8. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals: Michael Leighton was expecting a pass

    Jun 10, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

    I am admittedly hard on goaltenders, especially NHL goaltenders in the playoffs. Many people wondered what Dan Boyle was doing when he threw his own puck on net; me, I was all over Evgeni Nabokov for not being square to the play. Before the Cup finals began everyone was all gaga over Michael Leighton and…

  9. Atlanta Thrashers sign Jim Slater, interview Craig Ramsay for coaching job

    Jun 8, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    There’s good news and bad news for the Atlanta Thrashers as they enter the first off-season of the post-Ilya Kovalchuk era. The glass half-full side will point to their $31 million-plus in cap space and handful of decent young players such as Evander Kane and Zach Bogosian. On the other hand, the team has as…

  11. NHL Network to air documentary 'Behind the Stripes: A Ref's Life' Monday

    Jun 6, 2010, 7:10 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Professional sports feature plenty of glamorous jobs. In football, there’s quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers. While even some of the best hockey players get their hands dirty, there’s no doubt that No. 1 centers are the Joe Montanas of the game. Meanwhile, the John Maddens (Chicago’s Madden, of course, not the boom-tacular football guy)…

    Jun 4, 2010, 2:27 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The top line of the Philadelphia Flyers have not had a good series against the Hawks, but the rest of the team isn’t really all that worried about it. After all, the Flyers survived until the third round without leading scorer Jeff Carter. Simon Gagne’s return in the second round helped spark the Flyers’ historic…

  13. Jason Spezza wants to stay in Ottawa… Sort of

    Jun 3, 2010, 9:45 PM EDT

    Earlier today, James took you down the developing ugly path in Ottawa surrounding Jason Spezza and his unhappiness in Ottawa. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? After all, this is kind of how things got going for Dany Heatley last season. Although Spezza has come out and said that he doesn’t want to be traded from Ottawa,…

    Jun 3, 2010, 4:50 PM EDT

    When it comes to the NFL Draft, everyone and their crazy Uncle Henry seem to come out with a mock draft. Hockey might not enjoy the same brand of around-the-clock coverage, but that doesn’t change the fact that June’s Entry Draft will fuel debates among NHL executives and scouts for some time. Who will end…

    Jun 3, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Yesterday, the NHL’s general managers deemed Phoenix Coyotes GM Don Maloney the best GM of the 2009-10 season. This makes Maloney the award’s first recipient. The story states that Maloney beat out two other finalists: Nashville Predators GM David Poile and Washington Capitals GM George McPhee. (I have to admit that I’m surprised Boston Bruins…

    Jun 3, 2010, 12:45 AM EDT

    If we didn’t know it before, then we sure as heck know it now: the Philadelphia Flyers are one of the most the resilient teams we’ve ever seen in the postseason. At the heart of this team is a group of determined forwards, who may not be the biggest stars in the NHL and certainly…

  20. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 1: Should Leighton have stayed in the game?

    May 29, 2010, 11:31 PM EDT

    I can understand Peter Laviolette pulling Michael Leighton after he allowed five goals on 20 shots. His team was playing horribly sloppy, there was absolutely no crispness for the Flyers and the only reason the game wasn’t a disaster was because the Chicago Blackhawks weren’t doing much better on their end. I understand, but I’m…

    May 28, 2010, 12:59 PM EDT

    Michael Leighton’s journey to become a starting goaltender in the Stanley Cup finals is nothing short of amazing. Since being drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks, he’s spent time with the Buffalo Sabres, Anaheim Ducks, Nashville Predators, Montreal Canadiens and the Carolina Hurricanes. Many times he was claimed off waivers, as he was deemed expendable by…

  23. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals: Will anyone pick the Flyers to win?

    May 27, 2010, 4:34 PM EDT

    When writing the postgame story for the Chicago Blackhawks’ series win over the San Jose Sharks, I finished the post with this statement: You wonder if the Eastern Conference team will even stand a chance. Now, obviously that was a bit hyperbolic, and even though the series wasn’t over yet there was a good chance…

  24. Brian Boucher could back up Michael Leighton for Game 1

    May 26, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Beyond the Chicago Blackhawks offense, Michael Leighton has another thing to worry about: the potential return of Brian Boucher. reports that Boucher might be ready to backup Leighton as early as Game 1 on Saturday. “I think there is a chance, yeah,” Boucher said. “I think today was a day to get through, and it went…

  25. Will Marian Hossa finally win a Stanley Cup?

    May 26, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    For three straight seasons, Marian Hossa will play in the Stanley Cup finals, and he’ll be doing so with his third different team in a row. It’s an odd mercenary accomplishment for the Czech winger, who chose to leave Pittsburgh for Detroit (the team that beat the Penguins) and then the Red Wings for the…
