Should the Red Wings Trade Howard?

As the 2019 NHL Trade Deadline approaches, the Detroit Red Wings have a series of important discussions ahead of them regarding potential trade chips and pending free agents. One important conversation is what to do with Jimmy Howard? There are a number of factors that come into play with Detroit’s netminder that don’t impact typical rental players. Most notably, how he has been instrumental in the little bits of success the Red Wings have had this season. He’s been their backbone and has ...

Panarin to the Rangers Could Make Them Lethal

The New York Rangers finally ended their five-game losing streak on Saturday. They played close games against the Vegas Golden Knights and rival New York Islanders this week, but found themselves making critical errors at bad times. The Rangers pummeled Robin Lehner of the Islanders with shots in the third period on Thursday night while holding the opposition to zero. When the Islanders finally put a shot on net, it happened to be off Josh Bailey’s stick to beat Henrik Lundqvist and give t...

Nash Leaves a Blue Jackets Legacy in Retirement

For fans of the Columbus Blue Jackets, there is no player more polarizing than former captain Rick Nash. Some commend him for being the first real star of the young franchise, while others, to this day, remain upset by his exit. Regardless, his impact and legacy will be remembered in Columbus for years to come. Nash recently announced his retirement at the age of 34, a result of the lingering effects of multiple concussions sustained over his 15-year NHL career. Understandably, he is placing his...

Culture Check: Columbus Blue Jackets Stronger Than Ever

In perhaps their toughest and most important stretch of the season, the Columbus Blue Jackets made national news with an announcement about one of their best players. Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky was sent home by the team for an incident.

Top 10 Contracts in the NHL

With more than half of all National Hockey League clubs within $4 million of the current $79.5 million salary cap, it’s safe to say many were relieved when it was widely reported that next season’s ceiling will increase to $83 million. That $3.5 million increase may be enough to give contending teams the room they need to piece things together. What’s even more helpful, however, is when some of your best players are already signed to team-friendly, long-term deals. Young stars signed to long-ter...

Bobrovsky wants to move on from incident, but questions linger

Considering how tight-lipped NHL players can be even about the most mundane subjects, Sergei Bobrovsky deserves credit for being patient with the media in addressing the incident that essentially prompted the Columbus Blue Jackets to unofficially suspend him for Thursday's eventual win against the Predators. Of course, this is the NHL and Jim Lites isn't involved, so Bobrovsky's comments aren't the most candid, prompting us to read way, way too much into things. As it turns o...

The statement read: Due to unresolved issues/symptoms from the concussion sustained last March, Rick Nash will be forced to retire from the game of hockey.

Ottawa Senators Midseason Report

The recent 5-4 defeat against the Carolina Hurricanes marked the eighth straight loss for the Ottawa Senators, putting them last in the NHL with 35 points (from ‘GARRIOCH GAME REPORT: Senators’ eighth straight loss stings – Ottawa Sun – 1/6/19). Over those eight losses, they’ve been outscored 37-20 and allowing five goals to a Hurricanes team struggling to find the back of the net seemed to be the cherry on top. The Hurricanes rank third-worst this season with 67 goals scored, despite havi...

LA Kings News: Quick Gets 300 Wins

On Jan. 5, 2019, Jonathan Quick set a Los Angeles Kings record by recording his 300th win as the Kings shut out the Edmonton Oilers 4-0.

The Kings are struggling this season, but the Oilers game was a rare good night for the team. Not only did Quick get his 300th win, but Anze Kopitar also scored his 300th goal.

What the Sergei Bobrovsky-Blue Jackets 'incident' could mean for Flyers

It's safe to say the chances of Sergei Bobrovsky returning to the Blue Jackets in 2019-20 took a major hit Thursday. An incident occurred in which Sergei failed to meet those expectations and values, so we made the decision that he would not be with the team for tonight's game. According to a report by The Athletic's Aaron Portzline, a meeting regarding the matter will be held prior to Friday's practice in which Bobrovsky is expected to partake.

Calling Ex-Edmonton Oilers… You Can Come Back Home

Based on the spanking they received at the hands of the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday, if the Edmonton Oilers hope to improve their outlook on the season or seasons to follow, they need to be a deeper team, at all positions. It was bad enough that the general manager Peter Chiarelli traded for depth that is often currently sitting in the press box, — he has repeatedly done so — but injuries have hampered the team he’s tried to put together and his lack of cap management has created a situation wher...
