Columbus-blue-jackets
from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE, The Bobby Ryan trade rumors are nothing more than that at this point in time, but things could heat up if the right combination of players is found. Orange County Register reporter Mark Whicker was on 98.5 the Sports Hub’s “The DA Show” on Thursday night, and concluded that a Bruins trade offer of center David Krejci and a first round pick “would be the one to beat” and might get the deal done. One reporter’s opinion is obviously a far cry from the 25-year-old right winger coming to Boston. But a trade with the Anaheim Ducks for a 6-foot-2, 218-pound right wing that’s put up 136 goals and 259 points in 334 career games is the one deal that conservative GM Peter Chiarelli might not be able to say “no thanks” to. continued

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Teemu Selanne is returning to the Anaheim Ducks for his 20th NHL season. The 42-year-old Selanne has agreed to a one-year, 4.5 million deal, the Ducks announced Thursday.

Could Bobby Ryan be the next Bruins sniper?

Ever since the Bruins traded former first round pick and sniper Phil Kessel in September 2009 to the Toronto Maple Leafs, the team hasn’t really had that true scoring forward that could consistently score 30 plus goals a year and be an effective force night and night out. With that, there have been several rumors flying around [...]

Anaheim Ducks sign Nick Bonino, avoid arbitration

The Anaheim Ducks have re-signed center Nick Bonino to a two-year, $1.4 million deal, avoiding arbitration. The Ducks announced the deal Friday. Bonino had five goals and 13 assists in 50 games last season with the Ducks, setting career highs in each category while playing mostly on their depth lines. He has spent parts of the past three seasons with Anaheim since leaving Boston...

Zdeno Chara rocks out with Slovak band

Who knew Zdeno Chara was an axe man? There are very few things the Bruins captain can't do on the ice, and off the ice he looks to be something of a renaissance man as well. His skills even extend to music as well. The B's blue liner did a little jamming recently at a Slovakian awards show where he was also named Slovakia's top defenseman. As Puck Daddy reports, Chara...

Selanne re-ups for 20th NHL season

Those in the hockey world who watch Teemu Selanne believe that he can still play for a few more years, and leading the Ducks in scoring at age 41 only strengthened that sentiment. Apparently Selanne also believes that he has a lot left in his tank as well. The future Hall of Fame winger, who sits 12th on the NHL's all-time scoring list with 663 goals, is back for another...

Selanne signs one-year deal with Ducks

Teemu Selanne is not ready to retire. The 42-year-old future Hall of Famer announced Thursday he has signed a one-year deal to remain with the Anaheim Ducks. The deal is worth $4.5 million, according to the Los Angeles Times. The upcoming NHL season will be the 20th for Selanne. "I still feel that I have something to give and that I can still play on this high level,...

Bruins Need Another Goal Scorer

                      Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton were the Bruin’s first line scorers in 2011. Ever since Claude Julien became the coach of the Boston Bruins in 2007 the Bruins have been a defense first hockey team, and that is fine, but you do need to score goals to win the game.  The Bruins used to be awful offensively, but in the past three years that has changed...

Boston Bruins Not Likely To Trade For Rick Nash

Although the Boston Bruins are on the approved list of teams that Columbus Blue Jackets forward Rick Nash would accept a trade to, do not expect the 2011 Stanley Cup champions to make a push for the talented winger. Nash would love to play for the Bruins next season and beyond. He would be an instant upgrade to Boston’s offense, especially on their anemic power play...

Teemu Selanne returning to Anaheim Ducks for one more season

Breathe easy, hockey fans. Those of you who want to cling to your youth (such as yours truly) have dodged a bullet today. Teemu Selanne, the 42 year old forward who plays like a man half of his age, agreed to one more year with the Anaheim Ducks. According to Lisa Dillman his contract is worth $4.5 million, which is a half-million more than he made last season. Does someone of his...

Bruins made a play for Parise

The Boston Bruins' offseason of ho-hum continued with the club signing some extra pieces and apparently ready to hit the 2012-13 season with basically the same roster as the one that left the 2012 playoffs in the first round. Oh, and word got out that Boston made an offer to free agent Zach Parise before he signed his 13-year contract to leave the New Jersey Devils and join...

Bruins Could Dangle Tim Thomas in Effort to Land Rick Nash (Video)

The Bruins would love to acquire Rick Nash from the Columbus Blue Jackets. The 28-year-old forward wouldn't mind going to Boston either, as the Bruins were one of six teams on Nash's preferred trade list. The problem facing the Bruins -- as well as the Red Wings, Rangers, Flyers, Penguins and Sharks, who are the other five teams on the list -- is that Blue Jackets general...

Evening Line

“If you were walking by, you would’ve thought it was a high school paryt.  I’m talking booze, people randomly making out, everybody else cheering them on. And that was the PG stuff. Then everything went inside.” -Bobby Ryan explaining the atmosphere in the Vancouver Olympic Village after the Canada/USA gold medal game.  Much more on what really goes on (not hockey related...
