  1. Nicklas Lidstrom tops list of top 10 penalty killing defensemen

    Sep 30, 2010, 12:15 PM EST

    Many people find Norris Trophy voting to be a flawed process because it overvalues offense (since assists and points in general are the easiest stats to track) while overlooking the most important job of any defenseman, namely protecting their goalie and playing their best in their own end. Let’s not throw hockey writers under the…

  2. Preseason quick recaps: September 29th

    Sep 30, 2010, 1:10 AM EST

    Comments Off

    While the hockey world wasn’t treated to a Panthers-Hurricanes game thanks to a tropical storm, there were eight other games that only mattered a little bit tonight. Let’s take a look at them. Nashville 4, Atlanta 3 Plus: It was a great night for the two teams’ power plays, as all but one connected for…

  3. Capitals loan Michael Nylander to Panthers AHL affiliate in Rochester

    Sep 29, 2010, 2:50 PM EST

    Comments Off

    When the Capitals waived Michael Nylander last week, it was clear that they had a plan of attack for how to make his $4.875 million cap hit disappear once again this season. Last year, they were able to pawn him off to the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins as well as off to Finland. This time…

  4. Florida Panthers unhappy with Travis Moen's 'cheap shot' punches on Erik Gudbranson

    Sep 28, 2010, 1:45 PM EST

    The Montreal Canadiens have plenty of historic rivals, particularly the much-hated Boston Bruins, but the Florida Panthers aren’t one of the teams who come to mind. Yet if the Vancouver Canucks-Chicago Blackhawks feud teaches us anything, it’s that modern tension trumps historic laundry battles when it comes to turmoil. With 122 penalty minutes handed out…

  5. 2010-11 NHL season preview: Philadelphia Flyers

    Sep 28, 2010, 10:00 AM EST

    Last season: (41-35-6, 88 points, 3rd in Atlantic Division, 7th in Eastern Conference) You probably heard the story already if you’re a big hockey fan, but it’s still pretty amazing to think about it. The Flyers went from needing a failed Olli Jokinen shootout attempt on the last day of the season to eek into…

  6. 2010-2011 NHL season preview: Toronto Maple Leafs

    Sep 27, 2010, 11:23 AM EST

    Comments Off

    Last season: (30-38-14, 74 points, 5th in Northeast Division, 15th in Eastern Conference) It was another tough season for the Leafs, this time finishing with the second-worst record in the NHL. They weren’t able to reap the rewards of that thanks to trading their first-round pick to Boston in the Phil Kessel trade. Don’t know if…

  7. 2010-2011 NHL season preview: Buffalo Sabres

    Sep 26, 2010, 9:36 PM EST

    Comments Off

    Last season: (45-27-10, 100 points, 1st in Northeast Division, 3rd in Eastern Conference) The Sabres played above their heads and thanks to Team USA hero Ryan Miller, they were able to win the Northeast. The team’s lack of consistent scoring came back to bite them in the rear, losing to the Bruins in six games…

  8. Is it already time to panic about Carey Price?

    Sep 26, 2010, 12:40 PM EST

    The most important thing to remember – even if it slightly defeats the point of this exercise – is that none of this really matters. After all, Carey Price’s actual numbers are just the same as every other goalie in the regular season: zeroes across the board. But that being said, there are two other…

  9. Evgeni Malkin fights Rick Nash, Tyler Seguin scores, Carey Price allows 6 in tonight's 'early' games

    Sep 25, 2010, 11:20 PM EST

    There were a bunch of games tonight, quite a few of them starting late, so here’s a quick recap of the games that began before 9pm ET. We’ll cover the rest Sunday morning. Pittsburgh 3, Columbus 1 Plus: Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin skated on the same line, which might not be a great idea…

  10. Marc Savard speaks out about dealing with post-concussion syndrome

    Sep 25, 2010, 11:59 AM EST

    Boston Bruins star Marc Savard took time out this morning to speak with media about the lingering effects of post-concussion syndrome that he’s dealing with.  Savard being sidelined comes as a surprise to most fans because he returned to the Bruins lineup during the playoffs, yet now he’s not even skating with the team and…

  11. Dennis Wideman seeks redemption in Florida after tough year in Boston

    Sep 24, 2010, 7:20 PM EST

    Comments Off

    It can be tough to be traded as it’s always a major disruption in a player’s life and his career. For a guy like Dennis Wideman, it may have come as a blessing in disguise. Last year, the offensively-talented Wideman had some growing pains dealing with the playoff-anxious Bruins. Bruins fans were about as bi-polar…

  12. Preseason quick recaps: September 23rd

    Sep 24, 2010, 1:00 AM EST

    Earlier tonight, we touched on the Edmonton Oilers 5-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning. If you need a Cliff’s Notes version of that recap, here it is: Taylor Hall was good, Magnus Paajarvi was even better and the Lightning … well, they had some Dan Ellis Problems. Anyway, in case you want to know…

  14. Carey Price and the Habs sound off at booing fans

    Sep 23, 2010, 2:41 PM EST

    Last night was not a good one for either Carey Price or for the Montreal Canadiens fans who booed him after the Habs 4-2 loss to the Bruins in pre-season action. Losing the perspective that it was a pre-season game to let their without-a-doubt number one goaltender know they weren’t thrilled with his lackluster performance…

  15. Habs goalie Carey Price gives up four goals in first eight shots, gets booed off the ice

    Sep 22, 2010, 11:06 PM EST

    Signs you know hockey means something different in Montreal: Your starting goaltender gets booed off the ice in his first start in a pre-season game. Habs netminder Carey Price stopped six out of ten shots he faced in the 30 minutes he played against the Bruins in a 4-2 loss in Montreal tonight and was…

    Tuesday opened up the preseason schedule with nine games, but today’s slate of games isn’t a pushover either. Let’s take a look at who’s playing today, beginning with which contests will appear on the U.S. version of NHL Network. The full U.S. NHL Network schedule can be found here.

    Gratuitous hype alert everyone!

  18. Tyler Seguin gets his chance to play center while Marc Savard is out

    Sep 19, 2010, 5:56 PM EST

    Comments Off

    With every bad turn, something good must come from it. In Boston, with Marc Savard sidelined dealing with post-concussion-like symptoms, this offers the opportunity for the team’s other talented centers to step up and prove their worth in camp. For 2010 first round pick Tyler Seguin, it offers him the chance to show the Bruins…

  19. Despite expiring contract, Patrice Bergeron hopes to remain in Boston after this season

    Sep 18, 2010, 6:45 PM EST

    Comments Off

    A few seasons before it was reasonably common for an 18-year-old player to make an immediate jump to the NHL, Patrice Bergeron accomplished that task in the 2003-04 season, scoring 39 points in 71 games. It’s honestly hard to believe that the six-year veteran is only 25 years old, especially when you consider the bumpy,…

  20. Pat Burns laughs in the face of erroneous reports of his death

    Sep 17, 2010, 1:40 PM EST

    While Chuck Norris might be an inspiration to goalies and Internet memes around the world, one guy who’s managed to be tougher than everyone is former head coach Pat Burns. While Burns is struggling with terminal lung cancer and reported to be in worsening condition, it seems that some are in a hurry to be…

  21. Marc Savard still feeling effects of post-concussion syndrome

    Sep 17, 2010, 1:18 PM EST

    After the Bruins incredible exit from the playoffs last year it was assumed that center Marc Savard was healthy following his return to the team during the playoffs after suffering a concussion at the hands of Pittsburgh’s Matt Cooke. As it turns out, that may not be all too correct as Savard is still dealing with…

  22. Training Camp Battles: Northeast Division

    Sep 16, 2010, 11:15 AM EST

    With training camps starting late this week or early next, we at Pro Hockey Talk couldn’t help but wonder: what are the biggest position battles going in? To give you the most specific answers possible, we asked team bloggers to give their take. After all, these men and women follow their teams almost as much…

  23. How Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle and Magnus Paajarvi fared in their 'Oilers debut'

    Sep 16, 2010, 10:00 AM EST

    Comments Off

    The San Jose Sharks beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-3 in Wednesday night’s game in the Young Stars tournament, but just about anyone will tell you that wasn’t the real story. Nope, it was all about the “debut” of the Oilers three big prospects: No. 1 overall pick Taylor Hall, clever forward Jordan Eberle and Magnus…

  25. Experts say race for No. 1 spot in 2011 NHL Entry Draft is wide open

    Sep 14, 2010, 6:10 PM EST

    Comments Off

    Variety might be the spice of life, but for sports writers, it’s often a lot more appealing to set one irresistible force versus an immovable object. Sure, the NBA must be delighted by the fact that Kevin Durant is emerging as a big star, but do they want him to muddle the Kobe vs. Lebron…
