BEST OF MAXIM
People have their opinions whenever the annual Hockey Hall of Fame class is announced. There are annual favorites who get overlooked (Fred Shero and Pat Burns come to mind), as well as personal heroes that fans would love to see in the hall. No one's ever 100% happy about the end result, but this year I generally noticed a lot less angst than usual regarding the class. Pavel...
This is why we love free agency
From reader Josh K.
Lyrics to "Zach Parise" to tune of "Take it Easy." These may be complete ****, not a whole lot of jobbing in there but figured I'd pass it along.
Bein' King Shero,
Trying to loosen some dough,
I got 7 skaters on my mind.
2 I wanna re-up
4 I gotta...

Kings fans, your nightmare is over.
The New Jersey Devils' Patrik Elias returned from his long vacation, unpacked his equipment bag and there it was, the missing puck from the closing moments of Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final.
Bounty hunters, feel free to stand down.

All of the rage in the hockey blogosphere right now is fixated in Newark, New Jersey, amidst reported that the financially-struggling New Jersey Devils may have no choice but to let future Hall of Fame goaltender Martin Brodeur walk away from the organization after nineteen years of unrivaled service.
The most troubling development here...
The New Jersey Devils could be on the verge of filing for bankruptcy.
The NHL could take over the franchise.
An NHL source said, "If the NHL has to take over the Devils, Kovalchuk will be moved".
Ilya is owed 11 million dollars this year and upwards of 11 million dollars the following FOUR years. This is something the Devils simply cannot afford, even with Brodeur...
Maybe the Los Angeles Kings can put a picture of it on the side of a milk carton, or post signs around Staples Center.
The puck from the Kings' Stanley Cup Finals championship has not been seen since Game 6 of that series against the New Jersey Devils on June 11.

This offseason the obvious prizes for not only the Wings but a small handful of other teams are Nashville blue liner Ryan Suter and New Jersey forward Zach Parise.
During the free agent process though many fans might...
By Malik Report standards, five entries in a day is downright delinquent, this sniffly blogger had laid down for an afternoon nap simply because I assumed Brendan Shanahan would obviously be named one of the Hockey Hall of Fame’s 2012 inductees, only to wake and find out that Adam Oates, Joe Sakic, Pavel Bure and Mats Sundin were named to the Hall, but not Shanahan on Tuesday afternoon...
The hockey media world has been abuzz this morning at the news that 40 year old goaltender Martin Brodeur has enlisted the services of agent Pat Brisson in advance of July 1st, which could be an indication that he is not willing to take a home town discount to continue playing in New Jersey for a 20th season and may be open to other options.
While it is assumed that the hiring...
