    Comments Off

    While the season won’t actually start until Thursday, 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…

  2. PHT predicts the division standings

    We here at PHT have given you all the information you need to get ready for the season by previewing all 30 teams. Now it’s time to show off just how we think the divisions will play out, standings-wise. James previewed the Atlantic, Pacific, and Southeast Divisions while I took care of the Northeast, Northwest,…

    Oct 4, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

Here are some tidbits from the team’s press release. The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has named Ryan Getzlaf team captain. Saku Koivu and…

  6. Poll: Who will win the Northeast Division?

    Oct 2, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Northeast Division saw four teams make the playoffs last year and while the Sabres won the division, it was the Montreal Canadiens that made the biggest impact in the playoffs (unless colossal playoff failures is your thing, then it was Boston). So who takes the division this year? Will it be Buffalo again? Ottawa?…

  8. Jordan Staal might be out 'well into' the 2010-11 season

    Sep 30, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

    When it comes to the injury Jordan Staal suffered in last year’s playoffs, it’s been a slow trickle of bad news for the two-way center and the Pittsburgh Penguins. He probably came back a little too soon after P.K. Subban’s skate cut a tendon in one of his feet, getting surgery and hastily returning during…

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

    Sep 28, 2010, 1:45 PM EDT

    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…

  10. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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.…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. Preseason Schedule for Wednesday, Sept. 22

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
