Bruins Don’t Need Spooner Reunion

With news of Ryan Spooner being placed on waivers by the Edmonton Oilers on Monday once again reminding the hockey world that Peter Chiarelli should stop making one-for-one trades, it’s also led to questions regarding Spooner’s future. While a reunion with the Boston Bruins is a logical talking point given the fact that he was drafted by the team and spent the first five-plus seasons of his career in Boston, it would not be a good idea for general manager Don Sweeney to put in a waiver claim. Wh...

We invited Aaron Portzline of The Athletic, The Hockey News, and The NHL Network on to chat with us about all the drama happening in Columbus. What’s really happening there?

Bruins Trade Targets – New York Rangers

Earlier this week, we matched the Boston Bruins with the St. Louis Blues as potential trade partners this deadline season. Today, we will take a look at one of the biggest potential sellers in the east in the New York Rangers. The Rangers have fully embraced the rebuild, and will be heading to their second straight deadline looking to sell off assets. The Rangers did well a season ago, shipping Rick Nash to the Bruins for a haul that included the Bruins’ first-round pick and Michael Grabne...

Blue Jackets Bury Rangers – Foligno Scores Twice

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Nick Foligno scored twice, Sergei Bobrovsky returned from a team suspension and stopped 22 shots and the Columbus Blue Jackets held off a late surge and defeated the New York Rangers 7-5 Sunday night. Cam Atkinson and Artemi Panarin each had a goal and an assist, Ryan Murray had two assists and nine other players picked up points in the offensive explosion for Columbus. But, two goals by the Rangers late in the third period turned it into a closer game. The Blue Jackets have won...

Bruins’ Trade Deadline Targets

It is hard to believe that trading season is here once again, but as the NHL’s annual All-Star Game creeps a little bit closer that means the deadline is right around the corner. This season there appears to be more of a buyer’s market than anything, which greatly benefits a team like the Boston Bruins. As the Bruins get healthier and the wins continue to pile up, it only strength?ens the team’s case to buy at this deadline. With a number of young players on ‘value deals,’ there might not ...

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...

Blue Jackets Beat Capitals in OT – Holtby Injured

WASHINGTON — Cam Atkinson scored his 25th goal of the season, Artemi Panarin connected in overtime and the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Washington Capitals 2-1 on Saturday night after the defending Stanley Cup champions lost All-Star goaltender Braden Holtby to an eye injury. Panarin scored in overtime for the second straight game. Holtby took a stick to the left eye from Atkinson through his mask in the second period. He left the game, giving way to backup Pheonix Copley, and the team said Ho...

Afternoon Line- Larry Brooks

Never before and never since has a forward taken at least 80 shots in the Stanley Cup playoffs and scored fewer than five goals. And yet, that was the dubious achievement that stayed with Rick Nash throughout his profoundly mixed tenure as a Ranger — in which he graced New York with his presence for nearly six seasons but left the city, and ultimately the game, with a hole in his résumé as large as his smile and his good heart. -Larry Brooks of the New York Post, where you can read more ...

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.

5 Boston Bruins Predictions for 2019

What a way to kick off the New Year, huh? The Boston Bruins walked into Notre Dame Stadium (in style, might I add) and took two points from the Chicago Blackhawks in the annual NHL Winter Classic. After an up and down 2018 filled with moments both good and bad, 2019 couldn’t have kicked off in better fashion for the B’s. We’re just getting started though.

NHL Hat Tricks History & Fun Facts

A hat trick is one of the NHL’s rarest achievements with only 81 during the 2017-18 season, or roughly one in 6.4 percent of games. That’s more rare than a shutout, with 144 in 2017-18, or one in 11.3 percent of games, or a shorthanded goal, of which there were 211 last season, or one in 16.6 percent of games. Of the 7,552 goals scored last season, 250, or 3.3 percent, were scored in a hat trick. The greatest player of all-time, Wayne Gretzky, had 50 regular season hat tricks in his career, or o...

Who Could the Bruins Target Up Front?

Slowly but surely, the Boston Bruins are getting healthier. Last night saw the return of defender Charlie McAvoy to the lineup and it won’t be too long now before we see Zdeno Chara and Patrice Bergeron work their way back into things. All that said, even when the B’s get healthy they’ll need help up front. Far too often this season, the Bruins have relied exclusively on their top line to provide the offense. It has prompted people, myself included, to call the B’s a one line team. Yes, th...

Is Hartman Worth What the Predators Gave Up?

When the Nashville Predators acquired Ryan Hartman from the Chicago Blackhawks at last season’s trade deadline for prospect Victor Ejdsell and two draft picks, it was met with mixed reactions. Second City Hockey, a Blackhawks blog, referred to the trade as an offer the Blackhawks couldn’t refuse. On the Forecheck, a Predators blog, categorized the deal as an investment, not a rental. Former THW writer George Matarangas simply asked if Hartman even improved the Predators.

Chytil’s Improvement Key to Rangers’ Surge

How times can quickly change in the NHL. Just a few weeks ago, the New York Rangers were a true definition of a rebuilding team — young, inexperienced players trying to find a way to gel together while suffering growing pains in their play and heartbreaks when it came to the win-loss column. One of these young players is a 19-year-old prospect from the Czech Republic, Filip Chytil. Chytil, at the time, was struggling to produce in the Rangers’ lineup, waiting on the pine for more ice time ...

Can Rangers Benefit From the Ryan-For-Ryan Deal?

When the New York Rangers management hinted that they weren’t done with the rebuilding process, minds wondered as to who of the Rangers’ veterans would be sent away. But just because a player is younger and was a part of the rebuilding process doesn’t mean they are safe from the trade block, either. The Rangers made that clear on Nov. 16, when they traded center Ryan Spooner to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Ryan Strome. Reaction to the trade has been pretty mute, as the perception is...
