  1. 2010-11 NHL season preview: Pittsburgh Penguins

    Sep 27, 2010, 11:15 PM EDT

    Last season: (47-28-7, 101 points, 2nd in Atlantic Division, 4th in Eastern Conference) It’s a little bit much to expect an NHL team to make it to the Stanley Cup finals three seasons in a row, so the beauty of the Penguins’ 2009-10 campaign is in the eye of the beholder. Evgeni Malkin and Marc-Andre…

  3. Mathieu Dandenault officially retires from the NHL

    Sep 26, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    I must admit, I thought he already retired, but rugged defenseman/winger Mathieu Dandendault officially announced his retirement from the NHL today. Here’s a press release from the NHL Players Association. Mathieu Dandenault, a veteran of 13 NHL seasons and a three-time Stanley Cup winner, officially announced his retirement from the National Hockey League today. “It…

  4. Poll shows that Canadians want their teams to fill 'quota' of Canadian-born players

    Sep 26, 2010, 5:10 PM EDT

    When you look at the wide variety of nations that produce hockey talent, it’s quite possible that NHL is truly the most “worldwide” of sports leagues. We could debate that point, but there should be little doubt that the mixture of European and North American players benefits the game as a whole on a profound…

  5. Preseason Schedule for Sunday, Sept. 26

    Sep 26, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Today’s preseason schedule cannot compare to the mammoth 14-game slate we saw on Saturday. That doesn’t mean it won’t be any less worthy of your attention (if you’re into that whole preseason thing). Let’s take a look at Sunday’s schedule of games, beginning with the contests that will be shown on the U.S. NHL Network.…

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

    Sep 26, 2010, 12:40 PM EDT

    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…

  7. Habs coach says Andrei Markov will return in October, Roman Hamrlik may resume skating

    Sep 24, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    About a week ago, we discussed the fact that a knee injury would keep Andrei Markov out of training camp and that there was no timetable for his return. Well, it sounds like there is at least a month-long window for his return, as Renaud Lavoie reports that Markov will be back in October, at…

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

    Sep 23, 2010, 2:41 PM EDT

    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…

  10. Sergei Kostitsyn tries to turn his career around with the Nashville Predators

    Sep 22, 2010, 4:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    One of the lessons people can take away from professional sports such as hockey is that raw skill alone doesn’t make someone successful. The game’s greatest players are often highly driven, courageous, hard-working and consistent. If all that mattered was his blinding speed and impressive puck skills, Sergei Kostitsyn would at least be a useful…

  12. It's "put up or shut up" time for Habs' Benoit Pouliot

    Sep 21, 2010, 8:45 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    When Benoit Pouliot was traded by the Minnesota Wild to the Montreal Canadiens for Guillaume Latendresse, it was viewed as a deal that sent team headaches going in each direction. For a while afterward, it looked like it was a great deal for both teams as the issues each player had in their old cities…

  13. Leafs' Mikhail Grabovski being sued for punching Habs fan and wife in the face

    Sep 20, 2010, 9:33 PM EDT

    Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski could be in some trouble off the ice. If law suits and allegations are to be believed, you could say that Grabovski’s still got some bad feelings about his past days as a Montreal Canadiens forward who sparred with the Kostitsyn brothers. A man from British Columbia claims that…

  14. U.S. NHL Network reveals its 35-game preseason TV schedule

    Sep 20, 2010, 6:40 PM EDT

    Starting tomorrow (Tuesday, September 21), the U.S. version of the NHL Network will begin televising 35 preseasons games, according to the network’s press release. For picture quality snobs like myself, you’ll be happy to find out that 33 out of those 35 contests will be in fancy pants HD. (Hopefully the other two will be…

  15. Columbus Blue Jackets ink Steve Mason to two-year extension despite sophomore slump

    Sep 20, 2010, 3:40 PM EDT

    There’s some slightly surprising news out of Columbus today: the Blue Jackets extended goalie Steve Mason’s contract for two years. The deal will be worth $2.6 million in 2011-12 and $3.2 million in 2012-13 for an annual cap hit of $2.9 million, according to TSN’s Bob MacKenzie. This allows both sides to avoid restricted free…

  16. Dismiss Alex Ovechkin at your own peril

    Sep 19, 2010, 7:30 PM EDT

    Rather than looking at his outstanding stats in the playoffs (10 points in 7 games against Montreal; 40 in 28 in his career overall), many people take the same, lazy formula for judging Alex Ovechkin: “Ovechkin plays in the game + Capitals lose = Ovechkin let his team down.” Hockey is a team sport, through…

  17. Why Caps GM George McPhee didn't do more in the off-season

    Sep 18, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    A lot of fans and observers around the NHL are going to be watching the Washington Capitals with a curious eye this season. After a shockingly disappointing playoff exit in the first round at the hands of the Montreal Canadiens, many thought that this off-season would bring changes to the Capitals lineup in the form…

  18. Andrei Markov's knee problems keep him out of training camp; no time frame for return

    Sep 18, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    When healthy, Andrei Markov has been one of the best offensive defensemen in the NHL. Unfortunately, injuries greatly hampered the Montreal Canadiens blueliner last season. He only played 45 games in 09-10 and then a Matt Cooke hit caused his current knee problems. The Montreal Gazette caught up with Markov, who still isn’t ready to…

  19. Rumored Gionta captaincy leads Quebec party leader to say that the Habs aren't French-Canadian enough

    Sep 17, 2010, 10:06 AM EDT

    The funny part of being the Montreal Canadiens is that sometimes, just being a successful hockey team isn’t enough when you’re in Quebec. While the team on the ice often has its own problems to contend with, the politicians in the Province of Quebec can get a bit anxious about things. No, they’re not passing…

  20. Training Camp Battles: Northeast Division

    Sep 16, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    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…

  21. St. Louis Blues introduce Jaroslav Halak, unveil two new goalie mask designs

    Sep 9, 2010, 8:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    It was a bit of a surprise when the St. Louis Blues shipped a couple prospects to the Montreal Canadiens to gain Jaroslav Halak’s restricted free agent bargaining rights, but it’s tough to blame the frequently goalie-challenged franchise for taking a swing at one of the breakout stars of the 2010 playoffs. Many people wonder…

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. Johan…

  23. Carey Price's agent denies 'strike' talk

    Sep 1, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Contrary to previous reports, Carey Price reportedly isn’t vain (and short sighted) enough to “go on strike” if he doesn’t get the alleged $3 million he is seeking from the Montreal Canadiens. TSN caught up with Price’s agent Gerry Johannson, who refuted the strike talk. Talk of Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price “going on strike”…

  24. Report: Carey Price wants $3 million from Habs or will go "on strike"

    Aug 31, 2010, 10:31 PM EDT

    After the Montreal Canadiens traded Jaroslav Halak it was assumed that the team’s goaltending future was firmly in the hands of one-time savior Carey Price. Of course, part of the motivation for the Habs to deal Halak was because both he and Price were restricted free agents this year and with Halak’s performance in the…

    Aug 31, 2010, 1:50 PM EDT

    We already discussed the fact that he would probably retire and join the Detroit Red Wings front office, but now it’s official. Get those old jokes out of your systems while you still can because Chris Chelios won’t play another game in the NHL. Here is the story from NHL.com. Chris Chelios, a three-time Stanley…
