  1. Why Nathan Horton might (or might not) make a big impact as a Boston Bruin

    Sep 11, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    When you ask many Boston Bruins fans (and hockey fans in general) about the team’s biggest transactions – or lack thereof – this off-season, they’d probably mention drafting Tyler Seguin or not trading Marc Savard or Tim Thomas. Yet when it all comes down to it, the biggest impact move might be landing talented-but-often-injured forward…

  2. It won't be easy for Tyler Seguin to make the NHL jump right away, but he appears ready

    Sep 10, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    For some reason – maybe because I’m not a Boston Bruins fan, maybe because my expectations for him are different – I never thought to compare former B’s top draft pick Joe Thornton and their latest potential rookie sensation Tyler Seguin until Kevin Paul Dupont did so for Boston.com. The two are coming into very…

  3. The PHT Nightcap: Thursday, September 9th

    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. Mike…

  4. Milan Lucic says his ankle is healthy, can't wait to start season

    Sep 9, 2010, 11:32 AM EDT

    Last season, Bruins power forward Milan Lucic was bitten by the injury bug. Struggling with injuries isn’t uncommon for a guy that plays the brand of game that Lucic does, but ankle injuries are a different monster entirely. Bruins fans can relax a little bit over the fact that Lucic says he’s feeling great and…

  5. Poll results: PHT readers think John Tortorella is the coach most likely to be fired

    Sep 5, 2010, 9:15 PM EDT

    A couple days ago, I reacted to a piece about NHL coaches who might be in danger of being fired. Often times in these situations, I like to take the temperature of PHT readers. So I asked the audience whose job they thought might be in the most trouble. Here are the results. (click to…

  7. Patrice Bergeron wants to stay a Boston Bruin

    Sep 4, 2010, 2:17 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Now that this Bruins off-season is settled after hearing that they won’t be trying to trade Marc Savard, the Bruins are trying to make sure that next off-season won’t be quite so dramatic. With key players Patrice Bergeron and Zdeno Chara set to become unrestricted free agents at the end of the season, it’s possible…

  8. Boston GM Peter Chiarelli: Marc Savard will not be traded

    Sep 4, 2010, 9:15 AM EDT

    While one player’s saga comes to an end, it would’ve been fitting if another’s off-season of rumors and possibilities continued to rage on. Instead, the summer that featured trade rumors of all kinds and contract-destroying possibilities involving Bruins center Marc Savard, today is going to feel like Christmas for Savard. First, the NHL and NHLPA…

  9. 2010 Lester Patrick Award winners announced

    Sep 2, 2010, 4:06 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    This year’s Lester Patrick Award winners have been announced and if you’re not familiar with the award, it’s given out to those who have made significant contributions to hockey in the United States. This year, the city of Boston has a lot to be proud of considering who will be honored. Hockey Hall of Famer…

  10. Marc Savard's agent: We'll sue if NHL voids Savard's contract

    Sep 2, 2010, 2:44 PM EDT

    Apparently Marc Savard’s agent isn’t too pleased with the NHL taking a stand against long-term money-juggling contracts. While we mentioned it in passing in our story about Chris Pronger’s contract getting the official OK from the NHL, we figured that this deserves some attention of its own. Savard’s agent Larry Kelly was on the Team…

  11. NHL apparently gives approval to Chris Pronger's seven-year contract extension

    Sep 2, 2010, 11:44 AM EDT

    While we’re here today splitting hairs over whether or not we consider the differences between “ultimatum” and “negotiation” regarding the situation between the NHL and NHLPA over the Ilya Kovalchuk situation, the originator of the report, Larry Brooks of the New York Post, hits us with some new information. While the NHL rounded up a…

  12. Tuukka Rask reflects on 09-10 season, tries to put playoff letdown behind him

    Aug 29, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    When you consider how unproven he was going into the 2009-10 season, most people would probably look at Tuukka Rask’s rookie year as a resounding success. After all, he usurped Tim Thomas, the 2009 Vezina Trophy winner as the Boston Bruins managed to grind their way into a playoff berth. Still, you also can’t blame…

  13. Paul Kelly: League would be foolish to go after Marc Savard's contract

    Aug 29, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    While we wait to see if the NHL will approve the latest contract for Ilya Kovalchuk, we ponder how the NHL’s investigation is going with the other contracts they’ve eye-balled as being potentially cap busting. While folks focused on Marian Hossa’s contract, Marc Savard’s contract extension with the Boston Bruins is one that seemed to…

  14. Lightning trade Matt Lashoff to Maple Leafs for two players

    Aug 27, 2010, 5:23 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    In what’s proving to be an active Friday in the NHL, the Toronto Maple Leafs and Tampa Bay Lightning (who else!) decided to get in on the action completing a minor trade. Toronto acquires defenseman Matt Lashoff from the Lightining in exchange for forwards Alex Berry and Stefano Giliati. Lashoff was a first round pick…

  15. Where could Bill Guerin play next season?

    Aug 27, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Now that the Penguins have officially stepped away from Bill Guerin we can now start officially wondering about where the well-traveled veteran scorer will play next, if anywhere at all. The recon on Bill Guerin is simple. He turns 40 in November, he’s played for 18 seasons in the NHL with eight different teams. At…

  16. A breakdown of the Versus 2010-11 NHL TV Schedule

    Aug 25, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    Earlier today, our own Joe Yerdon did a great job of breaking down the NBC schedule. You can bet that we’ll be ready to give you extensive coverage of the NHL all year round, but there’s no doubt that those NBC games will be special. Since we want to cover hockey from all angles, I…

  17. Aaron Ward decides to retire after three knee surgeries, 15 NHL seasons

    Aug 24, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Some sad if not surprising news from the NHLPA today: defenseman Aaron Ward decided to retire from the NHL. Here is more from the players association’s press release. Aaron Ward, a veteran of more than 13 NHL seasons, 17 seasons in professional hockey, and a three-time Stanley Cup winner, announced his retirement from the National…

  19. Which teams (and players) are the best (and worst) at shootouts?

    Aug 20, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    It’s more than a mild understatement to say that shootouts aren’t popular with hardcore hockey fans. That being said, I think that we often take our distaste for the “glorified skills competition” too far. At least in one area: analysis. Rarely do you hear a player touted for his penalty shot kills, unless it’s to…

  20. Hottest selling merchandise in the NHL? How about the Hartford Whalers

    Aug 18, 2010, 9:02 PM EDT

    “Hartford Whalers merchandise is the hottest selling merchandise in the NHL.” If I asked you about what year that headline came from, you’d probably guess sometime in the early 1990s and feel pretty confident about it. How about if I told you it came from 2010? Turns out, the team with the most stuff flying…

  21. 2010 NHL free agency: Islanders sign Andy Hilbert and Rob Hisey

    Aug 18, 2010, 4:51 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Islanders announced a pair of AHL-bound signings today and one of those names might stand out for fans on Long Island. The Isles came to terms with forwards Andy Hilbert and Rob Hisey and if Hilbert’s name rings a bell, that’s because you’ve heard him mentioned with the Islanders before. If you’ve been looking…

  22. Ilya Kovalchuk contract rejection might hurt future contracts, like Zdeno Chara's

    Aug 15, 2010, 10:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    When it comes to discussing other players who might be affected by Ilya Kovalchuk’s contract rejection, most of the conversation revolves around players whose deals have already been signed like Roberto Luongo. The fact is, though, that it might have just as much of an impact on players getting ready to sign new deals. Fluto…

  23. Hartford Whalers fan fest brings back memories, raises questions

    Aug 15, 2010, 4:17 PM EDT

    There was a heaping dose of hockey nostalgia this weekend surrounding a team that hasn’t been in the NHL since 1997. For the fans of what once were the Hartford Whalers this weekend provided a time to come together to celebrate not just the past glory of the Whalers but also to praise one of…

  24. The NHL's greatest teen sensations include Gretzky, Lemieux, Crosby

    Aug 12, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Since the NHL finally allowed speed and skill to usurp groping and grinding after the lockout, the league has seen wave after wave of instant sensations straight from the draft. From Sidney Crosby to Alex Ovechkin to Drew Doughty and beyond, it almost seems like hockey players are hitting their primes the second their skates…

  25. Keep an eye on these potential performance bonuses

    Aug 12, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    Performance bonuses always have been a bit nebulous in the NHL. Rarely do teams release information on them and … for the most part, they haven’t had a big effect on anything. Well, they didn’t have a big effect until this summer, when the cap-strapped Chicago Blackhawks were hit hard for about $4 million in…
