TANNER PEARSON - 1-30 Okay, so everyone says nice things about the kid. Two way player. Good hockey sense. But will he be Brayden Schenn or Colten Teubert? Drew Doughty or Thomas Hickey?

In goal for the Los Angeles Kings, #32 Mike Richter?

Every Rangers fan who followed the team through that magical 1994 season has a nostalgic affection for Mike Richter.  He was the reason myself, and I’m sure countless others decided to put those bulky pads on and have chunks of frozen rubber shot at them.  He embodied everything that Rangers fans loved about that team. To say that his career was cut tragically short by concussions...

Toronto’s Plan Is To Be Like The Kings

from Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star, The Los Angeles Kings are what the Toronto Maple Leafs hope to be — not just Stanley Cup champions but grinding, forechecking, defensive-minded Stanley Cup champions.

Luke Schenn traded to Philadelphia Flyers for James Van Riemsdyk

In what seems to be the current trend in NHL trades, for the second time in two days brothers have been united in playing for the same team.
