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...

The Arizona Coyotes With A Home Win Over The San Jose Sharks

from Richard Morin of the Arizona Republic, The Coyotes may not get many chances to play nationally televised games, but they made the most of a rare opportunity in Wednesday’s 6-3 win over the San Jose Sharks at Gila River Arena. This being just the second and final national game for the Coyotes, who were also featured on NBC Sports Network on Oct. 16 in Minnesota, it felt like a statement game for Arizona to put together such a solid effort against a Sharks team built for a long pla...

Sabres Survive Flames on Eichel’s OT Winner

CALGARY — Jack Eichel scored the overtime winner for the Buffalo Sabres in a 4-3 road win over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday.

Lightning Domination No Guarantee of Playoff Success

Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Mike Babcock said in December it looked like the Tampa Bay Lightning were better than every other NHL team. About a month later, not much has changed. The Lightning are running away from the competition in the overall standings. Tampa Bay Lightning celebrate (AP Photo/Chris O’Meara) Following a 2-0 victory in Dallas over the Stars on Tuesday, Tampa had 74 points — 10 better than the Calgary Flames in the race for the Presidents’ Trophy and 16 clear of Toronto for...

1,000 – San Jose Sharks Magic Number

In the NHL, the number 1,000 often connotes a milestone, whether it is points or games played or something else. The San Jose Sharks are hitting milestones with the number 1,000 quite frequently, including three time in their last three games. Joe Thornton’s 1,000 Milestone On Tuesday night, Joe Thornton, affectionately known as Jumbo to fans and teammates, played his 1,000th game as a member of the Sharks.

Former Montreal Canadiens defenceman Josh Gorges retires after 13 NHL seasons

KELOWNA, B.C. — Free agent defenceman Josh Gorges retired on Monday after 13 seasons in the National Hockey League. The 34-year-old native of Kelowna, B.C., announced his decision in his hometown, where he broke into major-junior hockey as an undrafted player with the Rockets. "This is where it all started for me ... Really I had nowhere to go and wasn't sure what was going to happen and they gave me an opportunity," said Gorges, who is now helping out the Western Hockey League team in a co...

Penguins Pulpit: DeSmith, Injuries & Potential Deadline Plans

It seems the only teams that can beat the Pittsburgh Penguins are Western Conference bottom-feeders. The Penguins own the best record in hockey since Dec. 19, with a 10-2-0 mark in 12 games, including an eight-game winning streak. Their only two losses occurred against the Chicago Blackhawks (Jan. 6) and Los Angeles Kings (Jan. 12) who are 28th and 29th in league standings, respectively. The good news for the Penguins is that they don’t play either team again this season, so it should be s...

Flames’ Frolik Responds Strong

The Calgary Flames will be looking to continue their winning ways tonight when they play host to the Arizona Coyotes and attempt to maintain the positive momentum of what’s been a successful homestand so far. The Flames, led by veteran forward Michael Frolik, once again displayed their flare for third-period dramatics in their latest contest by rallying to earn a 4-3 victory against the Florida Panthers. Frolik being a driving force in the team’s fourth straight win seemed an unlikely develop...

San Jose Sharks Change Their Script

A little over two weeks ago, we discussed the San Jose Sharks’ upcoming eight games and how these games would impact the rest of the season. The games included six tilts against teams close to the Sharks in the Western Conference playoff standings, one against their arch rival and one against the best team in the league. This stretch, one of the toughest and most important of the season, has changed the Sharks’ season for the better. A lot better. Six Sharks Wins The Sharks dispatched th...

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.

NHL Rumors: William Karlsson, Ducks, Devils, More

Arvidsson, Forsberg and Subban Dazzling in Returns

The Nashville Predators have been on a roll of late with five wins in their last seven games with their only losses occurring in overtime. Before that, however, it was a different story as they lost six in a row, including four against non-playoff teams. The biggest reason for their turnaround has been a return to health, especially by key players as Viktor Arvidsson, Filip Forsberg and P.K. Subban all missed extended periods of time between November and January. Arvidsson has had two injury abs...

Maple Leafs’ Tavares: 300-Goal Scorer

John Tavares not only helped win the game for the Toronto Maple Leafs, he also entertained Toronto hockey fans by scoring his 300th and 301st goals as the Maple Leafs beat the New Jersey Devils in New Jersey. The only downside was that he set his record on the road, and I am certain that Devils fans were not nearly as celebratory as Maple Leaf fans would have been had the game been at the Scotiabank Arena. Other Maple Leafs who have scored 300 goals include Mats Sundin (420 goals), Darryl ...

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...

San Jose Sharks Unusual Roster Construction

The San Jose Sharks used the same game roster in consecutive wins this week over the Los Angeles Kings and Edmonton Oilers. A look at the roster tells a very interesting story about how Sharks general manager Doug Wilson has constructed the team. Sharks’ Game Day Rosters For these two games, the Sharks dressed the same 20 players. I counted four ways the 20 Sharks players were brought into the organization and a fifth important way which made no contribution at all. Drafted players (6): Logan ...

Elliotte Friedman laid down his 31 Thoughts article and gave us a few nuggets including that the Jets might move Laurent Brossoit but won’t contemplate moving one specific player teams are asking about. He also suggested a trade for Michael Ferland is a “when” and not “if” scenario, naming a few teams that might be interested. The...

Sharks’ Karlsson Enters the Hart Conversation

As November came to a close, one thing seemed clear for San Jose Sharks defenseman Erik Karlsson. He wasn’t going to be in the hunt for any major award. He was adjusting to his new team, which required both learning a new system and a mindset change. The slow pace at which he was adjusting was a bit unnerving. December changed all that and more. Some believe his emotional return to Ottawa on Dec. 1 marked the turning point. Even the Sharks coaches felt getting past that specific game made a majo...

Lightning Weekly Flash: Kucherov, All-Star Snubs & the Streak

Well, it finally happened folks. After going more than a month without suffering a regulation loss, the Tampa Bay Lightning finally came out of a game without earning a point this week. In the final game of their California road trip, a tired Lightning squad lost to the San Jose Sharks. So the dream of Tampa Bay ending the season on a 50-game point streak is now officially over. While we all knew the streak would eventually come to an end, it still was fun to see just how far the team coul...

Tape2Tape: Marner’s Absence & My Annual All-Star Frustration

It seems like we have a conversation about this particular weekend on the NHL’s schedule on a yearly basis – at least I do. I’ve written about previous all-star snubs, whether changes are needed to the NHL All-Star Game and even went as far as questioning whether the NHL should rid itself of the All-Star Game altogether. But I’m not about to make extreme suggestions again and call the All-Star Game a complete hoax. Instead, I want to question whether the ratings-driven one-player-per-team setup ...

Bruins Benefiting from Rask’s Resurgence  

It was a tumultuous first half to the season for Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask, to say the least. What’s more? The early struggles followed an increasingly frustrating pattern of poor play, dating back to last season, forcing the Black & Gold to rely on the backup to their incumbent No. 1 netminder. From the 2018-19 opening night fiasco in Washington against the Capitals when Rask allowed five goals on 24 shots before being mercifully removed to the final game before the Christmas break i...
