What Happens With Iginla?

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail, The goal for any general manager in a position to sell is the same – drum up a market for his available players. If Feaster can interest two or more teams in Iginla – or in Jay Bouwmeester, Miikka Kiprusoff, Cory Sarich, Lee Stempniak or Mike Cammalleri – then he could get some tangible assets in return. No one can say for sure...

Niklas Kronwall hits Charlie Coyle, Eddie Olczyk goes apoplectic

If we are to believe NBC Sports' Eddie Olczyk, Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall's dirty hit to the head of Charlie Coyle--and it was ill-timed--was a hideous and egregious offense for which no one should stand. Kronwall received a double-minor for high-sticking and the Wild scored on their power play.

Evening Line

"I feel great. 31 is the new 21 I think. I feel like I'm a lot more mature, I know my body better, I know the game better. At the end of the day, if I didn't feel like I could get back to being where I was or better, I'm not the kind of person that wants to going to just continue to hold on." -Rick Dipietro of the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.  More, including...

Quick Habs thoughts on a Wednesday night

The Habs continue to truck along, having gained yet another point in yesterday's OT 3-2 loss to Buffalo. A few quick thoughts: The Bouillon signing is a great move. Marc Bergevin is clearly a chemistry guy, and believes in the leadership present in the room. Bouillon is a big part. Well done, M. Bergevin. Jarred Tinordi belongs. I was at Saturday's game against New...

The GM Meetings From The NHLPA View

from Nick Cotsonika at Puck Daddy, Is the NHL Players’ Association ready to support a grandfathered visor rule? The union at least will ask its members what they think. If they are in favor, the rule likely would go from the competition committee, to the NHL Board of Governors and into the book. But we’ll see. “We’re definitely going to look at talking to...

Missing the Point

Steve Simmons continues to beat a dead horse: People can grouse all they want about the Phil Kessel deal and how it has worked out with the Bruins — and too often we hear this debated — but not enough is said about the Rask mistake. Yet (former Leafs GM John) Ferguson may have had the right idea in trading a young goalie to Boston for Raycroft. He just picked the wrong...

Got Cake? We’re Gonna Live Blog It

Look.  Richard Harris was "A Man Called Horse".  Have you seen it? You should.  He was a bad, bad man. A tough man.  So, why then--in 1968--did he feel the need to sing a song like MacArthur Park? It's an age-old mystery, rivaled only now by this question: Why would Ryan Suter and his BFF Zach Parise go to Minnesota where they'll never win anything more...

When it comes to the New York Rangers as a franchise, we have seen many consistent themes each and every season. One of those themes has to do with streaking.

Buying Time In The Faceoff Circle

from Jesse Spector of The Sporting News, “On every icing, the winger goes in (for the draw) and gets thrown out on purpose,” Islanders coach Jack Capuano said. “You see that everywhere you go. He’s getting thrown out so the center can take the draw and it buys five more seconds (after a team is not allowed to make a line change following an icing). That should be a rule...

Red Wings prospect Calle Jarnkrok's Swedish team, Brynas IF, won't repeat as Swedish Eliteserien champions.
