Top 5 Teemu Selanne Moments With Ducks

In June 2017, Anaheim Ducks legends Teemu Selanne and Paul Kariya were elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame. The two formed a scintillating duo of offensive talent with the (Mighty) Ducks in the mid-late 1990s, helping grow interest in Anaheim’s new team. As both are now Hall-of-Famers, their careers are inevitably littered with a plethora of highlights. Kariya was the club’s longtime captain in its early years, while Selanne retired after the 2013-14 season holding the all-time franchise records ...

Retiring Iginla’s Number Is Perfect End to Nearly Perfect Career

In December 1995, the Calgary Flames traded Joe Nieuwendyk to the Dallas Stars for Corey Millen and a promising junior player. Roughly 23 years later, the Flames will honour that junior player – Jarome Iginla – by retiring his jersey number in a pre-game ceremony at the Scotiabank Saddledome. The Calgary Flames will retire Jarome Iginla’s jersey number on March 2, 2019.

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...

What Contending Teams Should Look For As The Trade Deadline Approaches

from Eric Duhatschek of The Athletic, In short, the goal is to get a serviceable rental at a reasonable acquisition cost. As I scour the available players, the two that make the most sense are both currently with the St. Louis Blues, Jay Bouwmeester and Carl Gunnarsson. Both are on expiring contracts, Bouwmeester earning $5.4 million, Gunnarsson $2.9 million, so by the deadline, they will be manageable deals. Bouwmeester is 35, the same age as the Flames’ Mark Giordano, and he played thre...

Mark Giordano: Flames Unlikely Norris Contender at 35

The National Hockey League is chock full of unique players with compelling stories. The journey that brought Calgary Flames captain Mark Giordano to the big leagues is eye-opening in its own right. Flames defensemen Mark Giordano (Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports) But in a league and game that’s increasing skewed towards the 25-and-under talents, Giordano’s push towards being a Norris Trophy contender at the age of 35 at times defies explanation. Typically players start to decline once they hit t...

Rick Nash Officially Retires From NHL

In what will likely be considered a non-shocking turn of events, on Friday morning, a statement released by Rick Nash and his agency, Top Shelf Sports Management, made the announcement that he is retiring from the game of professional hockey. 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. Under the advice of his medical team, the risk of further brain injury is far too great if Rick retur...

Is Gaudreau Making a Case for MVP?

Johnny Gaudreau is having a season for the ages. Add to the fraction that the Calgary Flames are sitting atop the Western Conference 44 games into the season — a feat the franchise hasn’t accomplished since 1993 – and the Salem, N.J. native’s campaign looks even more special. His 35 points (16 goals, 19 assists) since Dec. 1 makes him the league’s top scorer since. Similarly, in his last 25 games, he has 20 goals and 25 assists, leading Calgary to its most recent hot streak. This offensive...

All-Time Best Players for Defunct NHL Teams

The what ifs. The coulda shouldas. The almosts. They’re the lost or forgotten teams of the NHL. Those that have relocated or merged or went belly-up.

3 Reasons the Flames Could Be Cup Contenders

Is This the Best Flames Team Since 2004?

After a crazy 6-5 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Dec. 12, which included two goals in the final 1:08 from Rasmus Andersson (his first NHL goal) and Sean Monahan to knot the game at five — eventually setting up Johnny Gaudreau’s game-winner in overtime — I’m sure all that was going through the minds of Calgary Flames fans was the voice of Flames radio play-by-play announcer Derek Wills belting out “The find-a-way-Flames have done it again!” No, this is not a replay of 2014-15 seaso...

Is the Flames Rebuild Complete?

In the lifespan of most National Hockey League clubs, the previous team plan has to be thrown into the ocean and a new one drawn up. Even when things go incredibly well, players get old or expensive (or both) and a new course is charted by the team’s leadership.

Joe Thornton Will Play Game #1500 Tomorrow Night

from Curtis Pashelka of the Mercury News, Thornton, 39, will become the 19th player in NHL history to play in 1,500 games Thursday when the Sharks visit the Dallas Stars to start a quick two-game road trip.

Penguins Seeing Results of Shero’s Draft Day Moves

Ray Shero’s time as the Pittsburgh Penguins general manager is often seen as a failure. After all, he had both Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin throughout their early and mid-20s and only managed to win one Stanley Cup out of it. He was often praised for the trades he made, most notably acquiring a trio of wingers for essentially next to nothing during his tenure. First, it was Marian Hossa in 2008, then James Neal in 2011 and finally Jarome Iginla in 2013. But the biggest knock on Shero has come...

The NHL 600-Goal Club

For most hockey players, winning the Stanley Cup is the ultimate goal. From being drafted to helping a team through the regular season, playoffs and eventually Stanley Cup Finals, hoisting the cup is always the end-goal. Along the way, however, players all seek to play the best they can for a variety of purposes.

How the Avalanche Cleared Dead Wood

The Colorado Avalanche have embraced their namesake to clear away their old business model and shift their approach to the salary cap in order to build a new foundation for future success. While the free agent signings of Matt Calvert and Ian Cole raised a few questions, the Avalanche continued their more recent trend towards shorter-term deals avoiding aging veterans. While those who have followed the Avalanche may still be wrestling with post-traumatic stress from previous free agent acquisiti...

Recent Hockey Topics Of Interest

from Larry Brooka of the New York Post, - There is no clause in the CBA prohibiting teams from buying out a player and then re-signing him immediately. Nor is there one that forbids teams from trading a player then signing him as a free agent immediately in the wake of a buyout by the acquiring team. It seems like both issues should be addressed, but neither is. So no circumvention in the case of Brooks Orpik and the Capitals. - You can set your watch to Jarome Iginla’s Hall of Fame i...

Giordano Is Among the Flames Finest Ever

The Calgary Flames were at a crossroads in the summer of 2004. The club was reeling, having just lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. One of a few culprits for a team that ran out of gas just shy of the finish line was a lack of depth players that could step into the NHL lineup credibly.

Neal Broten Trade to New Jersey

For more than 14 seasons, Neal Broten played for the Minnesota North Stars/Dallas Stars franchise. During the Minnesota years, no player played more games, scored more shorthanded goals, had more assists, or scored more points than he did. Broten was essentially the face of the North Stars. It was a status he held until the emergence of Mike Modano took shape and the team had relocated to Dallas. When the North Stars moved down south and shortened their name to simply the Stars, it brought a gre...

Stars’ Seguin Still Shining in Dallas

Five years ago, newly-appointed general manager Jim Nill forged his legacy with the Dallas Stars when he made “The Trade.” On July 4, 2013, fireworks filled the skies, but none burned brighter than the fireworks at the Stars’ front office in Dallas, Texas. Nill pulled the trigger on a blockbuster seven-player trade, acquiring Tyler Seguin from the Boston Bruins. It was a move that changed the Stars from a fading team to serious competitors in just one offseason. Thanks to Nill, the Stars are sti...
