Day 2 of GM meetings: OT changes, Faceoffs and more

According to Elliotte Friedman the GM's discussed an interesting new wrinkle to faceoffs: A proposal to change the way faceoff "cheaters" are dealt with. Now, the offender is kicked out of the circle, but too many GMs feel that's being used as a delay tactic, to rest tired teammates. Instead, the guilty party would be forced to move back between 12-18...

PHOTO: Buffalo Sabres 'Girls Night Out' Ad is bad

You can't blame the Buffalo Sabres marketing department for trying anything to sell tickets. Their team is just atrocious this year, but they still have to make money. Ladies' night promotions are a thing -- the Washington Capitals have been doing them for years -- and over 30% of the league's fans are women, so advertising directly at them makes sense. This is just kind...

Stars-Blue Jackets postponed after player collapses on bench

Really scary moment in Dallas when Rich Peverley collapsed on the Stars' bench. All of our thoughts go out to Peverly. Thankfully, it sounds like he's going to be OK.  UPDATE: Rich Peverley has been taken to the hospital an is conscious. The game is still delayed at the moment. That's all we know for now. — Dallas Stars (@DallasStars) March 11, 2014 The...

Evgeny Kuznetsov, the Capitals and expectations

        On Monday evening, Evgeny Kuznetsov made his North American debut for the Washington Capitals. The 21 year old was one of the world’s top prospects before making his debut and is expected to infuse some vitality in a Washington team who currently sits outside of the playoff picture and is looking to make the Stanley Cup playoffs. It’s understandable for...

Validation? ESPN poll says the NHL part of the "Big Four"

I always assumed that the NHL was part of the United States' "Big Four" leagues and sports. Fourth behind Major League Baseball, the National Football League, and the National Basketball Association, of course - but part of the country's top sports nonetheless. Enter ESPN. Confused about what hockey is, and a broadcaster of every sport but that one, the Worldwide...

Don Cherry to Roberto Luongo: "Keep your mouth shut."

Roberto Luongo had some fun on Twitter at the expense of Eddie Lack and the Vancouver Canucks. While Vancouver was being blown out by the Dallas Stars on March 6th, Luongo jokingly started the hashtag #PrayForEddie and then stated he could have came in and "mopped up" Vancouver's embarrassing defeat.  Not everyone was laughing with Luongo. Don Cherry wasn'...

Video: Brian McGrattan scores from center ice on Eddie Lack

Brian McGrattan isn't exactly an offensive weapon. The enforcer entered Calgary's game against the Vancouver Canucks with just seven goals over the course of 290 games. With that in mind, it was only appropriate that he recorded an extremely unusual goal for the Flames in a losing effort against the Canucks.  Watch as he beats goaltender Eddie Lack from center ice: ...

Report: What really happened in the Thomas Vanek trade

         On the NHL’s trade deadline on Wednesday, the New York Islanders traded forward Thomas Vanek to the Montreal Canadiens for prospect Sebastien Collberg and Montreal’s 2nd-round draft pick in the 2014 NHL Draft (the Islanders will send their 5th-round pick back to Montreal if the Canadiens make the playoffs).

GIF: Sidney Crosby gets the XBOX controller disconnected treatment

Sidney Crosby was a shocking -5 against the Sharks on Thursday night. Included in his awful night was a terrible giveaway to Patrick Marleau on a Penguins powerplay that resulted in a shorthanded goal. It is only fair he gets the same treatment as Alexander Ovechkin. h/t to @GogglesTheFox

Why hockey fans in New York and New Jersey have it made

Hockey is a game that breeds addiction. Chris Rock once joked about the sport, "Hockey is like heroin. Only drug addicts do heroin. It's not like a recreational drug. It's never like, No, that's O.K., I'm not going to have heroin. You guys go right ahead. Hockey is kind of the same way. Only hockey fans watch hockey." He's not wrong, and he definitely...

Yzerman, Lightning in unique position after St. Louis trade

Predictably, Steve Yzerman was not happy in the aftermath of yesterday's trade with the New York Rangers. After all, he was painted in a corner by his 38-year old star winger with little wiggle room to negotiate a deal that would make his team better with the playoffs approaching. But there's one thing the trade did grant Tampa Bay's disgruntled general manager: organizational...

The 2013-14 NHL trade deadline was all about goalies

The 2013-14 NHL trade deadline has passed. This year's deadline was an exciting one as numerous teams made trades and plenty of noteworthy players were shipped to new cities. Despite all of the big and surprising swaps, goaltenders stole the show.  A total of 11 goaltenders were moved leading up to the deadline. One goalie, Jaroslav Halak, landed on the list twice as he...

The Florida Panthers bond with Roberto Luongo on Twitter

Roberto Luongo's trade to Florida was a shocker. Considering all of the drama in Vancouver over Cory Schneider and Roberto Luongo during the 2012-13 season, it's crazy that the organization now no longer owns either goaltender. Things look pretty dismal in Vancouver, but hockey fans in Florida finally have a major acquisition to celebrate.  Luongo's return to the...

Roberto Luongo traded back to the Florida Panthers

It's finally over. After three years of dragging goaltender Roberto Luongo on regarding his future, the Vancouver Canucks' goaltending controversy ends with a trade. Eddie Lack has a new partner in young goaltender Jacob Markstrom, and Luongo is heading back where he put up some outstanding numbers: the Florida Panthers. Luongo and his huge contract are now property of...

Wild surprise trade for Bryzgalov leaves Brodeur out in the cold

So much for Martin Brodeur heading off to wear a different team's Christmas sweater. The goaltender, who is in his final two months of his last contract, was attached to the Wild via rumors - but apparently those rumors aren't worth the Twitter they were tweeted on. The Minnesota Wild have effectively ended the Niklas Backstrom era by trading just a fourth round pick to the...

Devils to trade old player often confused as best goaltender of all-time

Bernie Parent. Terry Sawchuk. Patrick Roy. Glenn Hall. Ken Dryden. Jacques Plante. Dominik Hasek. Martin Brodeur. You could make a case that any of those goaltenders were the best to ever lace up their skates at the NHL level. Well, all but one. As you well know by now, Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur will get one more start wearing the familiar Devils logo before he is...

Gary Bettman thinks it'd "be fun" for Vancouver to have a geographic rival

NHL expansion is coming whether hockey fans like it or not. It's been a matter of "when" and not "if" the NHL will bring more teams into the fold for the past several years. While we could debate whether or not the league should expand (how about getting your existing teams in order first?), there's definitely enough rumors out there for a healthy conversation...

WATCH: Tim Thomas falls down, still makes amazing save

Mike Green thought he had an easy goal. Breaking in all alone on Florida's net, goaltender Tim Thomas tripped and fell down on his backside. Despite tripping over his own legs, Thomas managed to slide over and rob Green of what should have been an easy goal by.  Big blunder, even bigger recovery.  Let's look at a different angle. Both views are courtesy of Reddit...
