Coyotes finally get a look at Czech-mate line

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Trade deadline acquisition Martin Erat is expected to play Thursday after missing the past three games (and most of the road game against Florida) while nursing a head injury.  With center Martin Hanzal having returned to the lineup Monday in Los Angeles, the Coyotes' three Czech forwards (Radim Vrbata is the other) will play together for the first time since...

Washington memories vary for Erat, Ribeiro, Halpern

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- If Martin Erat left anything behind upon his hasty exit from the nation's capital, he won't have to wait long to reclaim it. Three days after arriving in Phoenix following a trade that sent defenseman Rusty Klesla, prospect Chris Brown and a 2015 fourth-round draft pick to the Capitals, Erat is returning to the place he couldn't wait to leave. "Hockey is strange...

Phoenix Coyotes: Trade deadline post-mortem

Phoenix Coyotes: Trade deadline post-mortemIn what was a wild trade deadline, NHL fans will wake up Thursday to what is a completely different NHL. Roberto Luongo is no longer a Canuck, Ales Hemsky is no longer an Oiler, and Ryan Callahan is no longer a Rangers.

Penalty Minutes: Metropolitan teams rising; Erat's demands

Who's Hot: Metropolitan Under Achievers Through the first 15 or so games of the season three traditional powers from the newly aligned Metropolitan Division looked as if their seasons were sunk. At the risk of mixing our metaphor, it seems the New Jersey Devils, Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers are slowly turning around the respective battleships of their seasons and getting...

Canucks have mild interest in Martin Erat?

Really? Martin Erat? You probably cringed as you read that.

In case you missed it, TSN Insider Pierre LeBrun said today that the Canucks (amongst other teams) have shown mild interest in Capitals...
