Pierre McGuire would fire coaches that rely on analytics for player review
In reading and hearing so many hockey analytics naysayers over the last year, we’re convinced that the divide between the sides isn’t as enormous as it appears. Provided one side stops being so shortsighted and presumpt...

Ty Anderson: Krug and Smith sign
And just like that, the tiring contract saga between the Boston Bruins and restricted free agents Torey Krug and Reilly Smith is over, with each skater signing a one-year deal worth $1.4 million. It’s not the two-year bridge deal that Peter Chiarelli and the Bruins are big fans of, but it’s a contract that pays the young duo below market value, putting the cap-hurting Bruins in better stand...

Jason Lewis: Who Will Lead the Kings in Scoring this Year?
Seems like a simple question with a simple answer. Kopitar. You know, the guy who has led the Kings in scoring the last seven season. Yea that guy. But let's try not to think about it in terms of individuals for a second, and think about who will lead the Kings scoring as a team. There are a few wild cards in there that could make a huge difference this year in turning the Kings from a me...

Michael Pachla: The Buffalo "Amerks" fall in Toronto in the shootout
The Buffalo Sabres iced a large group of players who will be ticketed for Rochester, at least to start this season. Of the twenty players in the line-up, only three are sure to be on the Sabres--Cody Hodgson, Andrej Meszaros and Chris Stewart--while two other, defensemen Mike Weber and Rasmus Ristolainen will probably be with the team when they open the season October 9th vs. the Columbus Blue Jac...

Tim Chiasson: Five Predictions For Sharks 14/15 Season
A few quick notes on camp before I get into the five predictions. - The Sharks reduced their roster to 38 yesterday, sending Abeltshauser, Schwartz, Emanuelson and Carpenter to Worcester in the AHL. - Tierney, Goodrow and Goldobin are making life difficult for McLellan and Wilson as they attempt to piece together an opening day roster. The three youngsters have been the Sharks best players i...

Eric Engels: What Questions Haven't Been Answered at Habs Camp?
1) It'll be interesting to see what Stephane Quintal has to say about Jarred Tinordi's thundering hit on Nate Schmidt in last night's preseason contest between the Canadiens and Capitals. Tinordi kept his skates on the ice, his hit was perfectly on time, and there was no swinging or lifting motion with his arm to merit a five-minute misconduct/match penalty for elbowing. All of that said, the laws...

5 Biggest Takeaways from Tampa Bay Lightning's 1st Wave of Roster Cuts
The Tampa Bay Lightning significantly reduced their roster on Sept. 27 when they announced that 28 players were being reassigned.

Eklund: Bruins Sign Smith and Krug to One Year Deals. Johansen into a corner.

It is obvious these players took serious discounts to stay Bruins and keep this team together. Now the question of w...

Eric Mellin: Caps Beat Habs in 11th Hour on Sunday
The Washington Capitals and Montreal Canadiens faced off on Sunday night in what was the 5th preseason game for the Caps. It wasn't pretty, but the Caps managed to score in the with a little over a minute left in the the game as Joel Ward, after taking a nice feed from rookie Andre Burakovsky from behind the net, banged in his own rebound passed Montreal goaltender Carey Price. Brooks Lai...

Why the Eastern Conference Is Watching Ryan Johansen's Contract Standoff
In a year where quality centres are dropping like flies in the Eastern Conference, one team has a perfectly healthy, perfectly high-end pivot sitting out of training camp thanks to a contract dispute. It’s a squabble that looks set to have a massive impact on the playoff picture out East, both in terms of what it means on the ice for the Columbus Blue Jackets and what it could do the

Assessing the Latest Boston Bruins Trade Talk Surrounding Boychuk, McQuaid
Predictably enough, puck pundits are proposing trades for the Boston Bruins to alleviate their blue-line overstock and chafing financial straps. Two of the more jutting musings from the past week came from a team-focused beat writer in ESPN Boston’s Joe McDonald and a national analyst in Sports Illustrated’s Allan Muir.

Braden Holtby head-bangs his mask off vs. Montreal (Video)
After the high stick of delightful Montreal Canadiens pest Brendan Gallagher twisted it sideways, Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby had but one reaction in a game on Sunday: HEAD-BANG’N THAT MASK OFF.  Seriously, that was 1983 Judas Priest concert-level noggin nodding. We imagine he was also making devils’ horns inside his blocker.

Complete Preview for the Calgary Flames' 2014-15 Season
Though the Calgary Flames finished 27th overall in 2013-14, an unexpected sense of hope surrounds a team that had stripped itself down to its bare bones.

Complete Preview for the Detroit Red Wings' 2014-15 Season
The summer of 2014 has been an odd one for Detroit, defined less by the team’s actions than by what hasn’t happened. One of the Red Wings' big offseason goals was to acquire a significant right-shooting defenceman to give their back end a different look. They struck out and ended up bringing back Kyle Quincey instead. “We had hoped ...

Statement game
MONTREAL – Carey Price was up to his old tricks in his first full preseason outing of 2014-15, showcasing the form that has earned him plenty of accolades over the course of a decorated seven-year NHL career. On Sunday night, the 27-year-old netminder turned aside 29 shots in a 2-0 loss to the Washington Capitals at the Bell Centre, foiling the likes of Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and Jason Chimera on multiple occasions before Joel Ward lit the lamp with just 89 seconds remaining in r...

Jaden Schwartz wises up with Blues deal
The immediate reaction from the hockey world to Jaden Schwartz’s 2-year, $4.7-million contract was that it’ll kick Ryan Johansen’s contract demands down a few notches with the Columbus Blue Jackets. I’m not sure I see the correlation, other than the fact that both players had RFA status and missed part of training camp. Johansen is positioned as a franchise player; Schwartz could be great, but he’s less vital at the moment (some of this has to do with the positions they pl...
