How Much Trade Value Does Derrick Brassard Have Left?

After losing Nick Bonino to free agency during the 2017 offseason, the Pittsburgh Penguins knew that the lack of a quality third-line center would be a glaring fault for the 2017-18 campaign. Trade rumors swirled for most of the season before the team acquired Derrick Brassard from the Ottawa Senators just days before the trade deadline. At the time, it was thought to be a great trade for Pittsburgh, a team that had hopes for a third consecutive Stanley Cup. Brassard was supposed to provide a bo...

BSC’s Bruins’ Mailbag: Healthy Lineup, Trades, Silfverberg & More

Another day, another mailbag! This may be the first mailbag all season long that comes with the Bruins at relatively full health without many questions surrounding the team’s short-term look at fixes as far as health is concerned. Despite the team being at full health, there are still noticeable holes in the lineup that need to be filled and multiple questions that need answering. With that in mind, let’s get straight to business with the mailbag. “When the Club Is [at] Full Health, Who Is Your...

Senator’s Need to Move Dzingel While He’s Valuable

With the NHL trade deadline approaching, Ottawa Senators forward Ryan Dzingel is quietly becoming an attractive target. The 26-year-old is on the last year of a $1.8 million contract, becoming an unrestricted free agent this summer. Especially if a trade can’t get done with Mark Stone or Matt Duchene, it makes sense to try and move Dzingel, whose market value hasn’t been higher since signing a bridge deal at the end of the 2016-17 season. A bridge deal gives the player opportunity to show ...

Pair of antelope among Brent Burns' epic 1000th game gift haul

There are few characters in the NHL more interesting than Brent Burns of the San Jose Sharks. Back on Dec. 27, he played in the 1000th regular season game of his NHL career and on Saturday it was time to celebrate. Although pre-game ceremonies for reaching that kind of milestone are commonplace, Burns' before the Sharks hosted the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night had a few twists as unique as he is.

Canadiens Prospects Shine at World Juniors

The Canadians may have lost in the quarterfinals of the 2019 World Junior Championships to the eventual champion Finns, but the Montreal Canadiens were the tournament’s big winners. After years of prospect droughts – no participants in 2016, two in 2017 and three in 2018 – there were seven Canadiens prospects who played significant roles on their teams, with representation on each step of the medal podium and in the individual awards. The future of the team was on display in Vancouver and ...

The ‘Dead’ Kings

from Curtis Zupke of the LA Times, The ingredients were there for the Kings to clean up with a victory at home. They rolled out their fullest lineup in weeks, against a fellow last-place team that was missing key personnel. And they were looking to build off a tightly played divisional game from earlier in the week. Yet those ingredients went wasted in a 4-1 loss to the Ottawa Senators at Staples Center. In a contest between teams with a combined minus-66 goal differential going i...

Alec Martinez returns to Kings’ blue line with new perspective

LOS ANGELES — Over the past month, Kings defenseman Alec Martinez got the gist of the press box experience without the affliction of a reporter’s salary. “It’s kind of funny,” Martinez said Thursday, when he returned from a 14-game spell on injured reserve. “When you watch the game from the press box, one, everything looks easy, looks slower, but when you’re on ice level that’s not at all how it is. It’s kind of hard to get a real read when you’re up there. I have a general idea of how we played...

Ducks’ Corey Perry talks about making slow but steady progress after knee surgery

ANAHEIM — The first days were the hardest. Four to five months sounded like an eternity to Corey Perry. But as time passed and Perry began to take stock of things after undergoing surgery Sept. 26 to repair damaged meniscus and the MCL in his right knee, he started to see an upside to sitting out for an extended period. Above all, he knew his wonky knee could be better than ever. His knee ligament had troubled him since he was a teenager playing junior-level hockey in Canada. Perry began to thin...

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.
