  1. If the postseason started today, all five Central Division teams would make the playoffs

    Nov 2, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    When I made my predictions for the regular season, I decide to go out on a limb and chose four Central Division teams to make the playoffs, meaning that the division would represent half of the Western Conference’s postseason squads. I actually might have been too conservative with my Central Division praise, though, being that…

    Oct 24, 2010, 2:42 AM EDT

    Teemu Selanne

    Teemu Selanne didn’t take kindly to a questionable hit received by Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall and says that “he’ll get his someday.” Was it a dirty hit though?

    There’s a bunch of Detroit Red Wings-related injury/retirement news via Ansar Khan of MLive.com today and last night. Let’s take a look. Kirk Maltby is set to announce his retirement today. The grinder has been a fixture in Detroit for most of his 16-year NHL career and Khan points out that he’s one of only…

  7. Video: Pavel Datsyuk gets a Gordie Howe hat trick against Anaheim in 4-0 Wings win

    Oct 8, 2010, 11:10 PM EDT

    When you’re a four-time Lady Byng Trophy winner the way Pavel Datsyuk of the Detroit Red Wings is, going to the penalty box in any way is usually met with a raised eyebrow. When you’re able to help lead your team to a 4-0 win over Anaheim with a goal and an assist, coming away…

    Oct 7, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

  9. 2010-2011 NHL season preview: Detroit Red Wings

    Oct 1, 2010, 11:45 AM EDT

    Last season: (44-24-14, 102 points, 2nd in Central Division, 5th in Western Conference) The Red Wings’ season was a definitive roller coaster year. Injuries kept the lineup from playing at max power each night, Chris Osgood’s poor play kept Jimmy Howard in net most of the season while the team battled to stay in the playoff…

  10. Eric Tangradi knows how to stick with the Penguins: make life miserable for goalies

    Sep 29, 2010, 7:35 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Back in the Mario Lemieux Era, the Pittsburgh Penguins were at their greatest when they sported an incredibly deep lineup that included Kevin Stevens, a power forward who enjoyed his best years skating alongside Super Mario. While the “current” edition of the team already won one Cup with a twilight-years power forward (Bill Guerin) and…

  11. Why Vincent Lecavalier would win comeback player of the year award, if it existed

    Sep 26, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    My knowledge of trophies in other sports isn’t cumulative, but I’d still be willing to wager that the Lady Byng is the least respected award in sports that hasn’t been made up by a snarky blog or something of that nature. Obviously, having a trophy with the word “lady” on it doesn’t fly in the…

    Here’s your recap of tonight’s pre-season action. Please try to contain your excitement reading these scores and remember, nothing actually counts.

    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?

  16. After struggling with problems last season, Niklas Kronwall's knee issues continue

    Aug 23, 2010, 7:10 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    While his hits often (in my opinion) straddle the line of charging, there’s really little doubt that Niklas Kronwall is an impact player. (He even has a very cool last name that some choose to turn into a verb, in a good way.) Beyond those game-changing body checks, Kronwall also brings a nice bit of…

  17. Age, not money, the dividing line in Kovalchuk's nixed deal with New Jersey

    Aug 9, 2010, 6:43 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Arbitrator Richard Bloch, now the most infamous man in New Jersey and the NHLPA, issued his own statement outlining his decision siding with the NHL against the NHLPA over Ilya Kovalchuk’s contract, voiding the deal. In Bloch’s statement, the arbitrator says the Kovalchuk deal “is a retirement contract” and that it goes “well beyond the…

  18. Players who made an impact during World Junior Hockey Championships' evaluation camps

    Aug 8, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Being that it only lasts one week, it’s dangerous to read too much into the development camps for next year’s World Junior Hockey Championships. Still, these evaluation sessions can be crucial for teams to make certain roster decisions, or at least put some players on their radar. It can also be an interesting sample for…

  19. Reports indicate Peter Forsberg wants to play for MoDo again; What about another NHL run?

    Aug 2, 2010, 7:45 PM EDT

    Like some reverse Groundhog Day, no hockey summer seems complete without at least a little bit of speculation on fragile forward Peter Forsberg. Consider his often-injured groin muscle/wonky foot to be his answer to a groundhog’s shadow; when you read about his relative health you know we’re in the thick of the slow season for…

  20. Agents say that the NHL can't block Kovalchuk's contract

    Jul 23, 2010, 12:36 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Through the many twists and turns of the Ilya Kovalchuk contract squabble with the Devils, we’ve been wondering about what, exactly, the league can do about things. The NHL has already done their part in rejecting the deal and while we wait to hear from the NHLPA about when/if they’ll file a grievance with the…

  21. Henrik Zetterberg's wedding party photos show that they party like it's 1929

    Jul 23, 2010, 10:05 AM EDT

    I know we don’t exactly run a TMZ-like operation here and getting photos of hockey players at their wedding doesn’t really seem like news to many folks, but sometimes things are too entertaining to ignore. Case in point, the wedding of Red Wings star forward Henrik Zetterberg with Swedish television star Emma Andersson.The two are…

  22. Ilya Kovalchuk's stunning contract with the Devils: By the numbers

    Jul 19, 2010, 8:41 PM EDT

    Rich Chere from the Newark Star-Ledger is the bearer of bad news for fans of fiscal responsibility as we know it as he gives us the official not-yet official (Tom Gulitti tweets that it’s not official yet but the NHL approving it won’t be an issue) contract numbers on the deal signed by Ilya Kovalchuk…

    The 2010 Hockey Hall of Fame inductees were just announced. For players, Dino Ciccarelli joins first-time female nominees Cammi Granato and Angela James. Jimmy Devellano and Daryl “Doc” Seaman were elected as “builders.” I conducted a survey of the PHT Staff (myself, Brandon and Joe) plus 10 hockey bloggers and the inductees we chose were…

  24. Los Angeles Kings sign Swedish Elite League defenseman Johan Fransson

    Jun 15, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    He’s Swedish and his name looks almost the same on paper, but no, the Los Angeles Kings didn’t sign Johan Franzen. Instead, the team signed Swedish Elite League defenseman Johan Fransson to a one-year contract. Rich Hammond shares some details about the blueliner. Fransson became Kings property after the Feb. 2007 trade that sent Mattias…
