  1. Why Team USA should (and shouldn't) win back-to-back gold medals at the 2011 WJC

    Aug 9, 2010, 12:20 AM EDT

    Despite the fact that home ice advantage may largely be nixed because Buffalo is so close to Canada, many believe that Team USA will be mild favorites for a repeat gold medal performance in the 2011 IIHF World Junior Championships. If they accomplished that goal, they’d only be the fourth team to win back-to-back golds…

  2. One week left to trade Tomas Kaberle, seven teams supposedly interested

    Aug 8, 2010, 3:43 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    While we’ve been feasting on free agent rumors all summer and trade rumors for some players (like Marc Savard and Tim Thomas) the be-all, end-all icon of trade rumors for the last year or so has been Maple Leafs defenseman Tomas Kaberle. While last year he was protected by a no-trade clause, this summer on…

  3. Tim Thomas says he is 'ahead of schedule' after May 21 hip surgery

    Aug 6, 2010, 11:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    While he was usurped by Finnish sensation Tuukka Rask, I think that Tim Thomas was better during the 2009-10 season than most people gave him credit for. Or, perhaps more precisely, he wasn’t quite as bad as people thought. His save percentage was down to 91.5 last season, but that’s nicely above 90 percent, generally…

  4. The PHT Nightcap: Wednesday, August 4th

    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. Gary…

  5. Blackhawks finalize signings of five depth players

    Aug 4, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Blackhawks have made it possible for a host of players who, more than likely, would not get any press time to get noticed for a day signing five players to one-year, two-way deals. Forwards Evan Brophey, Nathan Davis, and Hugh Jessiman, defenseman Jassen Cullimore and goaltender Hannu Toivonen have all been brought into the…

  6. The NHL's most significant salary arbitration rejections since the lockout

    Aug 3, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    It must be a very uncomfortable feeling for a player when a team walks away from an arbitration decision. My guess is that it would be a lot like the feeling someone would get if their date scrambled from a restaurant after seeing the bill for dinner. This last summer, we saw the Chicago Blackhawks…

  7. Report: Ilya Kovalchuk contract grievance hearing should take place in Boston on Tuesday

    Aug 2, 2010, 6:45 PM EDT

    With trade rumors cropping up as early as 2009, there were some Boston Bruins fans with dreams of Ilya Kovalchuk skating for the B’s. Well, that won’t quite come true, but if recent reports are correct his future (to some extent) will indeed be decided in Beantown. The hearing to honor or invalidate Ilya Kovalchuk’s…

  8. Assessing this year's arbitration decisions

    Aug 1, 2010, 3:03 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    A lot of our attention this summer has been spent on restricted free agents and arbitration. With over 30 players having filed for arbitration, there was potential for a lot of drama between teams and players. As is generally customary, arbitration is the last resort in contract negotiations and the majority of players settled into…

  9. Niemi's arbitration split-decision is better than expected news for Blackhawks

    Jul 31, 2010, 11:53 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    While the Chicago Blackhawks have to be somewhat happy with how goaltender Antti Niemi’s arbitration case turned out today, rewarding him $2.75 million, finding out about where each side was hoping to end up in the grand scheme of things salary-wise is a curious matter. Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago checks in to tell us…

  11. Tampa Bay Lightning look to expand hockey great Phil Esposito's role

    Jul 30, 2010, 8:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Now, I don’t live in Canada so I might not be fully qualified to lead this discussion but that being said, there are two championship hockey bumper stickers. In one corner is the much-loved “My other car is a Zamboni.” Its opposition is the classic Boston Bruins sticker that read, “Jesus saves, but Espo scores…

  12. Are the Kings interested in Marc Savard?

    Jul 30, 2010, 2:42 PM EDT

    It’s been almost a little too quiet on the Marc Savard trade rumor front lately. After some steady speculation all through the month of June about possible destinations in either Toronto or Ottawa for the Bruins centerman, a new contender has emerged from the shadows according to Jimmy Murphy of ESPNBoston.com. But while the market…

  14. Could potential new deals for Zdeno Chara, Joe Thornton set post-Kovalchuk trends?

    Jul 29, 2010, 11:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Two of the most notable potential 2011 unrestricted free agents might receive contract extensions way before July ’11. As I discussed before, the San Jose Sharks began talks to extend their leading points scorer Joe Thornton while Craig Custance also reported that the Boston Bruins started discussing a deal with big captain Zdeno Chara. It’s…

  15. SJ Sharks rumors: Team close to signing Devin Setoguchi, begins talks with Joe Thornton

    Jul 29, 2010, 8:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    When I looked at the San Jose Sharks’ July 2010 a while ago, it seemed like it had Impending Doom written all over it. I mean, after all, the team had to answer questions about impact unrestricted (Patrick Marleau, Evgeni Nabokov) as well as restricted (Joe Pavelski, Devin Setoguchi) free agents. Not to mention the…

  16. Updated salary arbitration calendar

    Jul 28, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    I provided a list of the upcoming arbitration hearings on Monday and already quite a few decisions have been made. In most cases, those deals were made to avoid such an uncomfortable process. I thought I’d update that list with stories Joe and I wrote for completed contracts or decisions we’re still waiting on. Let’s…

  17. Blake Wheeler's agent says arbitration hearing was 'professional'; How much is he worth?

    Jul 27, 2010, 8:10 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    As I mentioned yesterday, Blake Wheeler can be a tough nut to crack in negotiations, or so it seems. The young power forward in the making had his salary arbitration case with the Boston Bruins today. The arbitration award either hasn’t been made public or flat-out hasn’t been made yet – they have 48 hours…

  18. What about the rest of the NHL's free agents?

    Jul 27, 2010, 9:45 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    While we’re all consumed with what is going to transpire in the situation with Ilya Kovalchuk and the New Jersey Devils, there’s a host of other free agents out there feeling lonely and looking for a new home. One guy that might be off the market as soon as today is Alexander Frolov who is…

  19. How Blake Wheeler's arbitration could effect Tyler Seguin's immediate future

    Jul 26, 2010, 10:27 PM EDT

    We talked a bit about the Bruins’ potential arbitration case with forward Blake Wheeler earlier today. What happens there, should he not sign before his hearing tomorrow in Toronto, will affect the Bruins immensely as far as their salary cap is concerned. While the Bruins certainly have many things to consider when it comes time…

  20. A schedule of the remaining salary arbitration hearings

    Jul 26, 2010, 11:45 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Salary arbitration can be an ugly process. One infamous moment even caused former beleaguered goalie Tommy Salo to cry.* * – No word on if he cried because they showed the backbreaking goal he allowed against Belarus in the Olympics in an endless, “Clockwork Orange” style loop. In case my memory is fuzzy and that…

  23. With Kovalchuk signed, has Marc Savard's future in Boston changed?

    Jul 20, 2010, 9:45 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    We’ve speculated since before Ilya Kovalchuk signed that perhaps once he did get his name on the dotted line that action in both the free agent and trade markets would pick up and things would get interesting once again. One of the names that floated around in trade speculation before the start of free agency…
