Brunner Another European Found By The Wings

from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of Yahoo, To Wings GM Ken Holland, there is a simple reason why players such as Brunner go undiscovered for so long: The NHL is the best men’s league in the world, and players become men at different ages. Some are men at 18. Most grow into men later – some much later, some in out-of-the-way places. Brunner is listed at 5-foot-11 and 184 pounds...

TiqIQ Ticket Preview: Capitals @ Flyers

By Eli Epstein, TiqIQ As NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, the NHL Players Association and the league’s owners promised, the shortened 2013 hockey season would not be lacking action. The activity has been end to end, the finishes have been dramatic and the play has been upbeat and largely spectacular. While many teams haven’t skipped a beat, some franchises have struggled out...

Penguins’ Penalty Problems Cause For Concern

Last night's disappointing 6-4 Penguins loss to the Florida Panthers was one of those nights where you scratched your head and said out loud, a la Vince Lombardi, "What the hell is going on here!". Lazy, undisciplined penalties getting called left and right. The usually very steady penalty kill of the Penguins simply collapsing, allowing four Florida powerplay goals...

Canucks Have Too Many Wingers And Could Use a Center

from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province, The Canucks seem to have an excess of solid wingers which leaves them the envy of many squads in the NHL but after Henrik Sedin and Ryan Kesler, who showed again last night he's still a formidable player even while trying to comeback from a series of injuries, there isn't a lot in the way of offensive thrust in the middle...

Stars Believe In Cole

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News, Many of you have asked how I feel about the Stars trade for Erik Cole, and I have to tell you I’m not sure right now. You do this long enough and you get a little gun-shy on declaring absolute victory or defeat with a trade or a draft pick or a free agent signing. I know that goes against the grain of our Twitter society, but...

GDT - Game 20: Red Wings (9-7-3) at Kings (9-6-2) 10:00

After improbable back-to-back (convincing) wins over NSH (4-0) and VAN (8-3), DET are currently holding down the 8th spot in the West.  The PP has finally found a pulse, Jimmy is on fire, and the Chinese Fire Drill in the "D" zone is becoming a rarity - - at least at JLA. Of the Wings (9-7-3) 21 points, 15 were earned at home (7-4-1).  DET are a meager 2-3-2 on the...

Happy day, through a glass darkly

Tuesday afternoon, I heard Walking on Sunshine on the radio and it stuck in my head. I heard a whole lot of songs after that, but I couldn't wash it out. I also felt unaccountably cheerful, sort of the way the Sharks looked at the morning skate. Part of me thought them looking jolly was an ill omen, the way it was the last time I noticed that, before the Ducks beat them some...

Like The Old Times, Leafs/Canadiens

from Michael Grange of Sportsnet, And so comes Round 3 Wednesday, in a season series that has way more oomph to it than could possibly have been imagined when the league was lost in its lockout limbo and otherwise entering the second generation of the league's hard cap era, in which big market rivalries between winning teams are thing of past; victims of the rush toward...

Pick Six: Trade Winds Picking Up

The 2013 season has been light on trades so far, so Tuesday could be considered a very active day in the trade department. The two trades involving three notable players would certainly not be considered blockbusters, but they could have at least a minor impact in fantasy leagues.

Pretenders

After winning the Atlantic Division, finishing first in the Eastern Conference and coming to within two wins of making it to the Stanley Cup Final since 1994, the New York Rangers came into this season as Stanley Cup contenders. Throw in the fact that they had a Vezina Trophy winning goaltender between the pipes, traded for power forward Rick Nash and had the same defensive corps...

Ryder for a lump o’ Cole?

Newfoundland, rejoice: Michael Ryder is back where he belongs. Is this a good trade for Montreal? It had been said that Erik Cole's contract was great in year one, ok in year two, not great in year three, and Habs fans would beg for mercy in year four. Well, year four seemed to come quickly - and to be fair, that may be lockout related. Cole had clearly become disinterested,...

Here's a prime example of a non-story: Asked if the Montreal Canadiens will be looking to carry out revenge against him at the Air Canada Centre on Wednesday, Mikhail Grabovski coyly shrugged his shoulders. “Why would they? What happened last time? I forget,” Grabovski said, obviously playing dumb after the Maple Leafs 4-2 win in Philly on Monday. Don't be...
