GARTH'S CORNER: Bob & Weave
The NHL All Star Game carnival has packed up and left Columbus. Now its back to the life and back to the reality of being an injury depleted hockey team. The Blue Jax will have to play the next 4-6 weeks without their team MVP Sergei Bobrovsky. The Jax have called up a young prospect to try to fill BOB's skates for the next 4-6 weeks.

Peter Tessier: All-Star Wrap Up & How to Improve It
One of the parts of the NHL season I find fascinating is the grind that comes with 82 games over 6 months. It's a lot of work particularly when you factor in the travel but it's also the one aspect that is almost aways overlooked when hockey improvements are talked about. Right now is the all-star game break where players have 5 days off and most of them are jetting across the continent to g...

Kings place struggling C Richards on waivers
The Los Angeles Kings placed center Mike Richards on waivers Monday, a move that would have been unheard of just a few years ago when he was still one of the league's top two-way centers.

Jason Lewis: Mike Richards Placed on Waivers
Apparently the Kings were shopping Mike Richards extremely hard last night as the All-Star festivities came to a close. And when the deal fell through the only natural solution for the cap starved Kings was to place the two-time Stanley Cup Center and the two time 70+ point scorer on waivers. Hearing Mike Richards of LA is on waivers today. Wow.— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) January...

And while his players were off on their break, Sabres GM Tim Murray and his...

Eric Mellin: Ovechkin Donates Car to Charity
On Friday night, Alex Ovechkin took a mundane and tired NHL All Star Fantasy, and injected a little humor into the night. Ovechkin begged and pleaded to be picked last in the draft, even going so far as to make a sign reading, "I want to be last. I need car." For those of you who don't follow the Caps or understand Ovechkin's humor, it was to see how crazy and a little pretentious he was act...

Jared Crozier: What Is In Store For The Senators' Stretch Run?
So now that the feel-good, glad-handing weekend that almost resembles a hockey game is done, it is time to get back to business.

So with a playoff spot into the "highly un...

Ryan Wilson: Breaking Down the Penguins 'Big Three" Defensemen
As we enter the second half of the NHL regular season it is important for teams to fine tune their systems and for players to start ramping up their on-ice product. Each team is unique with what their needs are and the Penguins are no different. With the season ending injury to Olli Maatta the Penguins are going to have to lean on at least one defenseman who has never played regular top four...

The NHL's Team of the Week for January 26
For the first time in three years, the NHL presented its All-Star Game on Jan. 25 in Columbus, Ohio. Regular league games were played only from Monday till Wednesday last week.

Jan Levine: NHL Should Do The Right Thing and Postpone the Rangers-Islanders Game Now
The NHL is coming off an excellent weekend. Columbus was a great host to All-Star Game weekend, and while the game itself left a lot to be desired, the festivities and hospitality were top-shelf. In addition, while panned by several, the upcoming World Cup should garner lots of interest for the league and be a tremendous showcase for the talent in the NHL. Last, the division and wild card cases ar...
