Avs look to build off momentum in Roy's 2nd year behind bench

  Jarome Iginla took a few wrong turns and got lost heading into the office for his first day of work. So new to town, it's understandable the Colorado Avalanche forward can't quite navigate his way to the Pepsi Center yet. His direction on the ice, though, is impeccable.

Colorado Avalanche Need To Think Of Success In The Playoffs

from Terry Frei of the Denver Post, Here's the Avalanche's biggest problem as veterans prepare to report for physicals Thursday: It's difficult to come out and declare that you don't want to be as successful in the regular season as you were a year ago. You can't really say that to your players, to your fans, to the media, to anyone. But if an adoption...

Brian Ferlin right in Bruins' mix

It doesn’t take a long look at the Bruins roster to know that, if they are in desperate need of one commodity, it is a right shot winger. With the losses of Jarome Iginla and Shawn Thornton, the two right wingers the B’s have are both left shots in Loui Eriksson and Reilly Smith (presumed he gets signed). That should give the natural right wings at this week’s rookie tournament...

Questions For The Colorado Avalanche Before Training Camp Opens

from Adrian Dater of the Denver Post, Does Jarome Iginla have much left in the tank? The numbers indisputably say yes. Iginla led a good Boston team in goals last season (30). Not since the 1999-2000 season has Iginla failed to score 30 goals in a season (excluding the NHL's 2012-13 lockout year). He scored 29 in the 1999-2000 season for the Flames. He is 37 and not...

2014-15 Calgary Flames Preview: Sean Monahan, Sam Bennett Represent Bright Future

The Calgary Flames were one of the hardest working teams last season, but the franchise’s first campaign in over a decade without Jarome Iginla was a disappointing one as it finished with the second-worst record in the Western Conference at 77 points. The loss of captain and No. 1 defenseman Mark Giordano because of injury erased any hope of the Flames contending, but they did...

David Krejci’s Goal Scoring Could Increase With Loui Eriksson On His Wing

BOSTON — Bruins center David Krejci’s high hockey IQ, patience with the puck and ability to deliver pinpoint passes make him a tremendous playmaker. One element of Krejci’s game that doesn’t get enough credit is his goal-scoring ability. The 28-year-old forward has been a pass-first player for most of his time with the B’s, primarily because he’s been centering goal-scoring...

Hockey thoughts: predicting the 2014-15 Boston Bruins lineup

The Presidents Trophy winning team from the 13-14 season lost first line right winger Jarome Iginla to free agency while failing to add any significant pieces. It will be interesting to see if they add any depth players via trade before the start of the season. Forwards - Milan Lucic – David Krejci – Loui Eriksson Lucic and Krejci have been mainstays on the Boston first line...

Questions Facing The Boston Bruins

from Mat Kalman at NHL.com, Who will replace Jarome Iginla? -- Iginla was the new Nathan Horton. Now the Bruins need a new Iginla to skate with center David Krejci and left wing Milan Lucic. Among the Bruins' returning players, only Loui Eriksson and Smith seem to have the type of offensive skills it takes to play on the first line. Either player will give that line a different...

Expect The Boston Bruins To Make A Trade Before The Season Starts

from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe, The Bruins are in a jam. They have approximately $69 million committed toward 2014-15. This includes Marc Savard’s $4,027,143 annual cap hit and roughly $4.75 million in overage penalties (bonuses achieved last year by Jarome Iginla, Torey Krug, and Dougie Hamilton) they must apply toward their number.

Loui Eriksson, Simon Gagne Make Top Boston Bruins Story Lines (Video)

Winger Jarome Iginla’s departure from the Boston Bruins this offseason is the basis for many of the team’s top story lines going into the 2014-15 season. Loui Eriksson’s name has been popping up as a possible replacement for Iginla, but the Black and Gold’s depth on the blue line has some thinking that a trade might be the best way for the B’s to fill that hole. There...

Jarome Iginla "thrilled" on idea to play with Avs Landeskog, MacKinnon

In his first public comments since moving to Colorado following his July 1 free-agent signing with the Avalanche, Jarome Iginla's eyes brightened Thursday when asked about playing right wing on a line with two of the last three Calder Trophy winners.

Loui Eriksson Candidate For Bruins’ First Line In 2014-15 Season (Video)

With right winger Jarome Iginla headed to the Colorado Avalanche next season, the Boston Bruins are in need of someone to take his spot on the first line. And that someone might be right under their noses. Ring winger Loui Eriksson had a lackluster 2013-14 season thanks to two concussions, but if he’s healthy next season, he could be the solution to the Bruins’ top line needs...

On Iginla and HHOF

It’s a Friday in July and there’s barley anything to discuss in the hockey world. But wait.
