So, enjoy your summer and get ready. As you have probably noticed, I've taken most of the summer off...

In a relatively quiet summer of NHL player news, Toronto’s administration has made perhaps some of the most buzz-worthy changes. While trading scorer Phil Kessel and hiring coach Mike Babcock have been been substantial moves, it is the hire of general manager Lou Lamoriello that should have the most impact on the direction of the franchise.

Putting DeBoer's struggles with Devils in context

The Sharks' reported hiring of Peter DeBoer has been met with mixed reactions, which is understandable since DeBoer took the Devils to the Stanley Cup Final in 2012 and then oversaw a regression that ultimately led to his firing partway through the 2014-15 season, when the Devils were one of the worst teams in the league. However, it's worth considering that there were some circumstances...

The last three summers, the Wild front office has taken to the free-agent market to bolster its lineup, and although the pickups of Zach Parise, Ryan Suter, Jason Pominville, Matt Cooke, and Thomas Vanek have improved the quality of the team tenfold, it’s time for some of the younger guys to step up into bigger...

Parise, Wild hope to keep rolling against Blackhawks

  The decision by Zach Parise to settle with his home-state team three summers ago was carefully reached, in step with close friend Ryan Suter. Ultimately, the move was not a difficult one. Joining the Wild felt right to Parise from the start, and never did his place in Minnesota make more sense than this year when his dad, Jean-Paul, died after a long bout with lung cancer. Playing...
