The Top 10 NHL Trade Rumors as the 2014-15 Season Approaches
The NHL training camp period means trade rumors appear more frequently in the hockey media. Some of the speculation carried over from the summer, while the rest is more recent. Several of the rumors are the result of teams with limited cap space having to shed salary to either become cap compliant or create room for other signings. Some involve players eligible for unrestricted free agency next summer.

Puck Daddy’s NHL 2014-15 Emoji Preview: Edmonton Oilers

5 Carolina Hurricanes Players with the Most to Prove During the Preseason
The Carolina Hurricanes begin the seven-game preseason schedule on Sunday afternoon, 161 days after the conclusion of their unsuccessful 2013-14 season. The meaninglessness of the preseason is cliche, but meaninglessness is not to be confused with pointlessness. For many of the 51 players invited to Hurricanes training camp, there are roster spots to be earned, confidences to be restored and roles to be molded. The a...

Carol Schram: Vancouver Canucks: Training Camp Day 2, Team to Carry Three Goalies?
I caught Ben Kuzma from The Province in an appearance on TSN 1040 on Friday afternoon. As he described the latest happenings from training camp, he reminded us of the extraordinary shift that our Canucks team has made over the past few months. Towards the end of last season, all those empty seats at Rogers Arena were the result of apathy. A lot of people just weren't interested in hockey. N...

Scrimmage Caps Off Wild Second Day

Julie Robenhymer: The Curious Case of Jonathan Drouin
It's easy to get excited about the potential of certain prospects, especially those selected high in the NHL Draft, but it's very hard to pull the reigns back when you realize that potential doesn't come to fruition as. Such is the story of Jonathan Drouin, whom the Tampa Bay Lightning selected third overall 15 months ago. While 18-year-old rookies used to be the exception, it is now becoming...

The Most Interesting Cases of Familiar NHL Faces in New Places
NHL training camps are underway, and with preseason games set to begin this Sunday, it is a great time to refresh. This summer featured a number of familiar faces who moved around the league, and it will be intriguing to see how situations like Barry Trotz behind the Washington Capitals bench pans out. Trotz was a fixture in Nashville, and heading to the United States' capital will present some interesting new challenges. There were...

Tampa Bay Lightning have the coolest NHL billboard of season (Photo)
There are only so many ways to present a hockey billboard promoting the new season. The standard formula: Famous player plus image of intensity plus some clichéd tagline that’s typically related to ice. (Example: “Kick Ice.”)  Which is why the Tampa Bay Lightning’s new billboard featuring Valtteri Filppula should be celebrated. Because it’s actually two billboards, on either side of the I-275.

Mike Augello: Leafs Sign Donaghey To Entry Level Contract
The Maple Leafs have added another young defenseman to the fold, as they have signed undrafted free agent Cody Donaghey to a three-year entry level contract. The 18-year-old blueliner had 9 goals, 29 assists in 67 games for the Quebec Remparts of the QMJHL last season. The 6-1, 185-pound native native of St. John’s, Newfoundland led all Rempart defensemen in points and goals during the 2013-...

What You Need to Know About the 2014 Training Camp for the Detroit Red Wings
The Detroit Red Wings open up training camp in Traverse City with a much clearer picture of the immediate future of their opening night lineup thanks to recent events. The Wings will kick off the 2014-15 season without the messy logjam of forwards that they had at the beginning of last season, but that could mean a lack of depth as well. Here are five things you need to know about the 2014 Detroit Red Wings training ca...

What You Need to Know About the 2014 Training Camp for the Toronto Maple Leafs
The wait is over as the Toronto Maple Leafs' training camp has opened as the team prepares for the 2014-15 season. While every NHL team has reason for optimism, some teams have more reason to believe that the upcoming season will be better than last year's. The Leafs should be part of that latter group. With a number of changes to the roster, training camp will allow the re...

Predicting Which NHL Players Will Fill Vacant Captain Positions in 2014-15
Is the NHL suffering from a void in leadership? As training camps get underway for the 2014-15 season, seven of the league's 30 squads have yet to award the captain's "C" to a player on their roster.  There's no big rush to rectify the situation, either. A few teams have said they'll make a decision later in preseason, once they can assess their players' performances. The Montreal Canadiens deferred altogether when they&...

Why the Philadelphia Flyers Are in Danger of Having a Disastrous 2014-15 Season
The Philadelphia Flyers could be a bottom-five NHL club in 2014-15.

BROSSARD – With a brand new season on the horizon, Rene Bourque is hoping to pick up right where he left off last year.

Getting More Out of College Hockey Statistics
Last season was the first in which anything resembling possession statistics were tracked here at CHN, and there were a number of interesting points to be pulled from even the most basic data the numbers presented.

Subban, Erik Karlsson, Jamie Benn and ...
