All George McPhee
from Tal Pinchevsky of ESPN, ESPN.com: How many resumes have you received so far? GM: I'll bet that I've had 600-700 texts, 300-400 emails, 60-70 phone calls. It's been unreal. What's difficult is you let people know you'll get back to them when we get organized. If they haven't heard from you in a week, they start texting and emailing again. ESPN.com: What is it you'll be looking for in a coach in Las Vegas? GM: We haven't even started [looking] and probably won't until the ...

Afternoon Line- Matt Duchene
On trade rumours: "We're a team that has not been where we want to be the last couple years," he said. "Hopefully we get it back together this year, but if things don't go that way I'm sure they'll be looking to make some big changes. "All I can do is just prepare myself to help the best I can, first of all, Team Canada win the World Cup and after that the same applies for Colorado." -Matt Duchene of the Colorado Avalanche via Scott Lewis of Sportsnet.

Block A Shot Or Not
from Travis Yost of TSN, One of the discussion points I’ve found interesting over the years is whether it’s better for short-handed teams to set up in the defensive zone for the purpose of blocking shots versus setting up false shooting lanes that allow goaltenders clean looks at shots from a distance. Going through some video during this past regular season, it was interesting to see the strategic disparities from team to team. The Boston Bruins, for example, were maniac...

Would Evander Kane Be A Fit In Vancouver?
from Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province, Make a play for Kane, and many believe he can’t and won’t change his off-ice demeanour. At one point Monday, a TSN 1040 poll showed 56 per cent of 700 respondents didn’t want the Canucks to make a trade pitch. Then again, make a play and others will point to an exciting 30-goal winger with a palatable contract of two more years at a $5.2-million-US annual cap hit ($6 million in actual salary). The Canucks have also had past inte...

All John Chayka
from Dan Rosen of NHL.com, NHL.com's Q&A feature called "Five Questions With …" runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news. The latest edition features Arizona Coyotes general manager John Chayka: Just the other day you signed Luke Schenn. You already signed Alex Goligoski this offseason. Obviously you have Oliver Ekman-Larsson. What is the philosophy behind the defense tha...

Afternoon Line- Cam Talbot
I don’t think we’re that far off from making the playoffs, to be honest with you. I think one more piece [on defence] and we’ve got all the talent up front we’ve always had and added more talent via free agency and the draft. When you shore up the back end, which is what Peter’s trying to do, as long as I do my part, I think we could definitely battle for a playoff spot this year and next year and go from there. -Cam Talbot of the Edmonton Oilers.  Read m...

A Bridge Deal May Be Best For Jacob Trouba In Winnipeg
from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun, ... That's why a bridge of a season or two still seems to make the most sense right now. If Trouba can continue to log big minutes and increase his offensive production, the Jets will be happy to pay him big bucks over a longer term. One of the potential problems is that as long as Dustin Byfuglien, Tyler Myers and to a certain degree Toby Enstrom remain in the fold and healthy, there haven't been many power-play minutes available for Trouba, w...

All About Plus/Minus
from Mike Commito of Sportsnet, Plus-minus is the most polarizing statistic in hockey. There’s no quicker way to draw battle lines in the hockey community than by starting a dialogue about plus-minus. Some still look to it as a way to measure a player’s defensive value, while others see it as the most useless number in the box score. And it’s not just fans and writers who are dismissive of it. Plenty of players have gone on record over the years to voice their disda...

Mark Giordano On The Changes In Calgary
from Sportsnet, Flames captain Mark Giordano was a guest on Boomer & Pinder on Sportsnet 960 The FAN Monday and he talked about the club’s off-season changes. Giordano was asked if he felt it was time for a change in reference to Hartley's dismissal. Hartley was behind the bench in Calgary for four seasons as Giordano developed into one of the game's top puck-moving blue liners. "It's always hard to say...I've been through a few of the coaching changes in my career bein...

The Philadelphia Flyers Announce A Four-Year Deal With Brayden Schenn
from the Philadelphia Flyers, The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have agreed to terms on a four-year contract with forward Brayden Schenn, according to general manager Ron Hextall. Schenn is coming off a career year in 2015-16, his fifth season with the Flyers, where he recorded new career-highs in nearly every offensive categories: goals (26), assists (33) and points (59) in 80 regular season games. He tied for the team lead in game-winning goals with five, while ...

Marshall Johnston Can Now Relax
from Austin Monteith of the Grand Forks Herald, Player. Coach. Scouting director. General manager. Marshall Johnston did it all. And all while spending his summers and more along the shores of Lake Bemidji. Johnston recently retired from a National Hockey League career that spanned nearly 50 years and culminated with an 11-year tenure as the Carolina Hurricanes’ director of pro scouting. Johnston has lived in Bemidji for more than 40 years, summering in a cabin on L...

An NHL Game Per Week Will Be Streamed On Twitter
from Andrew Liptak of The Verge, Twitter is going to start live-steaming games from Major League Baseball and the National Hockey League, in addition to a new nightly show called The Rally in conjunction with 120 Sports. The games will be available once a week to viewers in the United States and to some select international markets. There’s no schedule or announced timeline for the rollout of this new feature. The Rally will be available live each night, and will be produce...

Murray Craven Keeps Busy Behind The Scenes In Las Vegas
from Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Murray Craven turned 52 last Thursday. But he was too busy to celebrate. Figuratively speaking, he has so much on his plate, there’s no room for birthday cake. The former NHL player and Medicine Hat, Alberta, native who has been serving as Bill Foley’s adviser throughout the billionaire businessman’s quest to bring major league sports to Las Vegas is multitasking more than ever now that Foley has his team. Craven ...

Morning Line- Andrei Markov
"I wish P.K. only the best and good luck with his new team. "P.K. is a great person, a great guy, a great hockey player. He's just enjoying his life, having fun. You have to know the kind of person and player he is. "It's not always easy playing with him, but I had lots of fun doing so. And I probably learned some new things from him." "I don't know [Weber] personally but his numbers and the way he plays prove he's one of the top defensemen in the league, and everybody knows that. He'...

Advanced stats and ‘eyeball tests’ can live together
Among the Toronto Sun's Steve Simmons' notes: This has not been the summer of analytics in hockey: This has been the summer of an escalating tug of war between old school thinkers and the numbers zealots. There were high-profile numbers firings in the analytics departments in Edmonton and Montreal, but one NHL executive views the ongoing numbers vs eyeballs debate through his progressive ways: “If someone tells me it’s all about analytics, and some do, I have no time for ...

Praising Brad Richards
The New York Post's Larry Brooks spends a fair portion of his Saturday notebook discussing the purported plan for a single-team arena to be used by the New York Islanders, but he finishes with this: Brad Richards, who announced his retirement this week, leaves a legacy as one of the most well-liked, admired and respected players of his time among his peers. The 36-year-old’s stay with the Rangers did not quite work out as conceived by either party, but there is no question Rich...
