Shea Weber offer sheet fallout, five years later
(Wed, 19 Jul 2017 21:54:27 GMT)
Five years ago today, the Philadelphia Flyers orchestrated one of the NHL's biggest what-if moments.

Sergachev thinks he’s ready for Lightning, NHL next season
(Tue, 18 Jul 2017 22:00:21 GMT)
The Tampa Bay Lightning landed a tantalizing prospect when they traded Jonathan Drouin for Mikhail Sergachev. If Sergachev has his way, he’ll jump right into the Lightning lineup in 2017-18, as reports. “I have to be faster to play in the NHL overall to be successful.

What's the best play in Flyers history?
(Wed, 19 Jul 2017 04:45:29 GMT)
VOORHEES, N.J. — At the junior level, scoring was second nature to Nicolas Aube-Kubel, like riding a bike after you figure out the balance aspect. Goals came in bunches and points piled up — that was his game and it came effortlessly at times, especially over his final two seasons with the QMJHL's Val-d'Or Foreurs, posting back-to-back campaigns of 38 markers and 80-plus assists. "Usually in junior, scoring was always coming naturally to me, having points and goals," he said last week at Flyers development camp. On the AHL ice last season, it was a whole new ballgame. For Aube-Kubel, Year 1 of pro hockey was a feeling-out process from start to finish. His prolific scoring didn't carry over much

Avalanche announce signings, but Zadorov may still be KHL-bound
(Wed, 19 Jul 2017 00:05:04 GMT)
In the case of the Colorado Avalanche’s Tuesday signings, the most noteworthy name is one that wasn’t on the list. Defenseman Nikita Zadorov still needs a deal, which means there’s still at least some threat that he’d leave for the KHL. A little more than a week ago, reports surfaced that Zadorov may strike a deal with CSKA, although he’s willing to give the Avalanche until the end of the month to come up with a better deal.

Every major NHL free agency signing in one place
(Wed, 19 Jul 2017 05:00:00 GMT)
The NHL’s last big date of the offseason is here — the start of free agency on July 1. While the news will certainly slow down after the rush to sign free agents on Saturday, there will likely be a lot of signings from here on out. To help you keep track of everything this summer, we have put all the free agency signings in one place! So, when Kevin Shattenkirk inevitably goes home to New York — which he did —- or when Jarome Iginla goes to yet another contender to try to win a Stanley Cup — which has not happened yet — you can see all the deals made right in one spot. Not only that, we’ll update this all summer long. Yes, even in the doldrums of the offseason we will have you covered. Regardless,

Bruins sign Austin Czarnik to one-year, two-way deal
(Tue, 18 Jul 2017 20:42:59 GMT)
As a prospect for the Bruins and a former first round pick, Trent Frederic was never going to wow you with dazzling puck skills, mesmerize with silky hands or blow you away with his skating game. Instead the strong, big-framed center showed up on scouts’ radars when it came time to compete, win battles with determination and physical strength and do the things that help build a winning hockey team. At times in his draft year Frederic looked like a third line center with modest offensive skills, but it was a different story this summer after he healed up and excelled in the world of college hockey. Frederic responded with an excellent freshman season where he posted 15 goals and 33 points in 30 games for the University of Wisconsin as a true, teen-aged freshman at the NCAA level.

Islanders Season in Review: Calvin de Haan
(Tue, 18 Jul 2017 14:00:00 GMT)
Andy Graziano and I have begun our annual season review, taking a look back at the 2016-17 Islanders and analyzing each player's performance in a down season that saw the team miss the playoffs by one point. We will be offering two reviews per week that will take us right through to the beginning of training camp in September. Of course, there are a couple of things to sort out prior, such as free agency and potential trades that could alter the look of this franchise going forward. Contract details via and stats courtesy of 44 - Calvin de Haan - Defenseman 6 foot 1, 197 pounds 26 years old Contract: Restricted free agent Season: 82 GP, 5 G - 20 A - 25 Pts,

AHL allowing players on minor-league deals to go to Olympics
(Thu, 20 Jul 2017 02:51:50 GMT)
VOORHEES, N.J. — At the junior level, scoring was second nature to Nicolas Aube-Kubel, like riding a bike after you figure out the balance aspect. Goals came in bunches and points piled up — that was his game and it came effortlessly at times, especially over his final two seasons with the QMJHL's Val-d'Or Foreurs, posting back-to-back campaigns of 38 markers and 80-plus assists.

Lesser Known Barriers Stand in the Way of A New Coyotes Arena
(Wed, 19 Jul 2017 05:00:00 GMT)
Editors Note: Alex is an undergraduate Geography student at DePaul University and has background experience in Urban Planning, Urban Studies, and Spatial Science. This is his take on issues that could arise with the planning of a new arena. If you have specific questions, please leave them for him in the comments below. For the last decade, Coyotes fans have been pained by relocation jokes and threats alike, as a carousel of owners and NHL executives have taken turns floating the organization. The team came into hard times during the early 2000’s, as their relationship with the ownership of the (then) America West Arena soured. Their old home was not built for hockey and the tough talks didn’t

Is Evgeni Malkin the greatest Russian NHL player of all-time?
(Wed, 19 Jul 2017 18:50:02 GMT)
Creating a list of the greatest hockey players of all-time is an arduous task. When myself, Dave Lozo and Sean McIndoe wrote “The 100 Greatest Players In NHL History (And Other Stuff)” – which is great vacation reading, by the way – establishing the criteria

Sorensen returns to Sharks after having 'positive impact' last season
(Tue, 18 Jul 2017 22:42:41 GMT)
Now that the dust has settled on the draft and free agency, here’s a meaty offseason Sharks mailbag before my vacation… Who will replace Patty's leadership? (philip malan? @pmalan1979) Patrick Marleau was a good example for other players in that he always came to camp in great shape and took care of himself between games, allowing him to be very productive into his later years.  But let’s not overblow it. From what I understand, Marleau preferred to avoid confrontation, and was never the guy in the dressing room challenging other players to step up. That was left more to guys like Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski, with Logan Couture growing into that role in recent years, too. When it comes to veteran

Patrick Eaves is taking his training for a charity ping pong game very seriously
(Tue, 18 Jul 2017 16:11:28 GMT)
Never let it be said that Patrick Eaves doesn’t take the game of ping pong seriously. Tuesday morning, the Anaheim Ducks forward posted a video of himself training for an upcoming charity ping pong challenge, set to none other than the famous Rocky montage music. Smashfest is a Toronto-based charity ping pong tournament in support of cancer and concussion research. Fans can play with and against NHL stars, and there is also a singles bracket between players to determine the Smashfest NHL Player Champion. Players like Phil Kessel, Tyler Seguin, Claude Giroux, and Mitch Marner have all participated, but Eaves himself is the reigning back-to-back Smashfest champion. No wonder Eaves is drinking raw

Why Brian Campbell knew it was time to retire from NHL
(Tue, 18 Jul 2017 19:29:23 GMT)
Brian Campbell had barely sat down at his retirement presser when his eyes started to water. Campbell met with the media on Tuesday, one day after he announced his retirement from the NHL. With his family wife Lauren, daughters Harper and Everley and parents Ed and Lorna in attendance, an emotional Campbell talked about leaving the game.

Bolts add Ken Klee to AHL coaching staff
(Wed, 19 Jul 2017 14:36:03 GMT)
The Lightning have found a replacement for former AHL Syracuse assistant coach Trent Cull. Cull, who left Benoit Groulx’s staff to take the head gig with Vancouver’s affiliate in Utica, has been replaced by longtime NHL defenseman Ken Klee, the club announced on Tuesday. “We are very excited to add Ken to our coaching staff,” Tampa Bay assistant GM Julien BriseBois said in a statement. “His vast experience as a long-time National Hockey League defenseman, his recent experience as a head coach of the U.S. Women’s National Team and his strong leadership skills will make him an important contributor to the success of our Syracuse Crunch team.” Klee, 46, appeared in over 900 big league contests with

4 NHL Backup Goalies Who Should Be Starters
(Wed, 19 Jul 2017 15:05:01 GMT)
At some point in every goaltender’s career, they face the unfortunate yet necessary role of being a backup. It’s unprecedented for a goalie, especially as they reach the NHL, not to be put into a backup role to nurture them into one day being a starter. Even for those who enter the League with great promise and potential, like some of those listed below, they will go through a process en route to becoming a starter. However, the trouble is when that goaltender is clearly NHL ready but has no space to play due to an already existing and thriving starter. When that situation happens, rumours swirl of potential trades which often come to fruition. For example, see Cory Schneider, Martin Jones, Cam

#Habs 2017 Top 25 Under 25: The long shots (39-31)
(Wed, 19 Jul 2017 05:00:00 GMT)
This season the community and EOTP writers ranked 39 players under the age of 25. Several players missed the cut to 25, to the surprise of no one. Let’s face it, not every player is destined for the NHL. As we approach the unveiling of the Top 25 Under 25, let’s take a closer look at the long shots in the Montreal Canadiens organization. This year we had 21 panelists submit ballots, including one calculated from the hundreds of community ballots received, as well as two standalone ballots from community members (Naslund and Silvertip). Koberstein was an unknown as a 2014 fifth-round pick, and as such the expectations were quite low. Unfortunately, Koberstein has failed to develop into an interesting

Panthers sign first-rounder Owen Tippett to rookie deal
(Wed, 19 Jul 2017 20:07:25 GMT)
The Florida Panthers announced that they signed Owen Tippett to a three-year entry-level contract on Wednesday. Tippett was the 10th pick of the 2017 NHL Draft, a big (red) forward who could very well go straight from the OHL to the NHL next season. The Panthers could certainly use a scorer with his potential.

Colorado Avalanche Goalie Coach Jussi Parkkila Has a Lot of Work To Do
(Wed, 19 Jul 2017 05:00:00 GMT)
Going back to May there was plenty of speculation that the Avs would hire longtime fan target Jussi Parkkila as the new goalie coach. Recently they did just that. It’s a gamble but what he lacks in NHL experience he might make up in time spent mentoring Semyon Varlamov over the years. Unlike new assistant coach Ray Bennett, who was hired at the same time, little is known about Parkkila other than where he’s worked and some of the better-known goalies he’s worked with. Now age 40, he started his coaching career early back in 2003 in his native Finland. 2003-2007 - Goaltending Coach for Ilves in the Finnish junior league. Worked with a young Tuukka Rask. 2007-2008 - Moved to Lokomotiv Yaroslavl

The NHL should get rid of home and away jerseys like the NBA did
(Tue, 18 Jul 2017 18:46:29 GMT)
NHL jerseys have often been held as sacred by fans and their teams alike. It’s why there’s backlash to even the slightest change on iconic looks like the Blackhawks or Canadiens that comes along every few years or so. Many were hesitant to accept Adidas as the producer of both the World Cup of Hockey jerseys and the NHL’s own uniforms for next season, though both have come out relatively fine when all was said and done. On Tuesday, the NBA and Nike announced that starting in the 2017-18 season, they will do away with the traditional home and away uniforms. Instead, home NBA teams will choose from a set of four jerseys while the away team will pick a “contrasting uniform” from their own. The idea

The NHL Original Six
(Tue, 18 Jul 2017 14:45:08 GMT)
Any hockey fan worth their salt knows the term “Original Six.” Those words immediately bring to mind images from the NHL’s rich history–from a time when goalies had no masks, and giants like Eddie Shore and Toe Blake patrolled the ice. Most fans can also correctly identify the teams that make up the Original Six: The Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs, Detroit Red Wings, Chicago Blackhawks, Boston Bruins and New York Rangers. Where things start to get fuzzy is when you start asking people why these teams are called the Original Six in the first place (SPOILER ALERT: It’s not because they were the first six teams in the NHL). But in order to understand how these teams became known as the

What do the Vegas Golden Knights plan to do with 12 defensemen?
(Wed, 19 Jul 2017 12:00:03 GMT)
Defensemen are going at a premium in the NHL, so it was no surprise the Vegas Golden Knights targeted the position at the expansion draft. It was a smart way to load up on trade assets as the front office embraced a forward-thinking approach to building a winner from the ground up. But as a result of the Golden Knights’ aggressiveness in adding defensemen, they’re now left with more than they could possibly need. Even after trading Marc Methot, Alexei Emelin, Trevor van Riemsdyk, and David Schlemko for draft picks over the past few weeks, Vegas still needs to figure out how to clear more space at the position. Following the recent signing of first-round pick Erik Brannstrom to an entry-level

Pens Points: Matt Murray carrying on Pens goalie tradition of being a standup dude
(Wed, 19 Jul 2017 05:00:00 GMT)
Matt Murray has some big shoes to fill for being a solid guy as Penguins starting goalie, but he’s off to a good start. [Bardown] And here’s the GoFundMe for the lemonade stand if you’d like to help the cause from afar. [GoFundMe] Evgeni Malkin not only makes a list this time, he makes it as #1! For Top Russian NHL’ers of all time. Other notable players with Penguins ties: Sergei Gonchar (#9), Alexei Kovalev (12) -- both under-rated if you ask me, and Darius Kasparaitis checks in at #24 despite being from Lithuania (though he did play internationally for the Russians). [The Hockey News] —Buy or sell that ranking? Feels a little too team heavy for accomplishments. For better or worse, Alex Ovechkin

Islanders News: The Daily Tavares Weight; Turgeon and Al
(Wed, 19 Jul 2017 05:00:00 GMT)
It’s Wednesday and my car won’t start. Sure, probably the battery but...WHY SHOULD A 3-YEAR-OLD BATTERY JUST GO KAPUT? (Sorry.) Doug Weight answered the call (again) for an NHL Network interview (again) to discuss the John Tavares Contract Situation (again), handling it smoothly (again). [NHL] Which is both good and proper. Give John time. [Fan Rag] Pierre Turgeon was at Islanders Fantasy Camp over the weekend, where he got to recall 1993, and the lessons from Al Arbour (and Patrick Flatley) that he’ll take into his new gig as an assistant coach with the Kings. [NHL] An important exercise from yesterday: Me? Well, at the time there were only TWO NHL lockouts, and I’ll just say that I was at the

NHL-National Hockey League roundup
(Wed, 19 Jul 2017 01:21:43 GMT)
The Nashville Predators signed forward Pontus Aberg to a two-year contract, the team announced Tuesday. The 23-year-old Aberg appeared in 15 regular-season games in 2016-17 for Nashville, registering one goal and one assist. The Swede added two goals and three assists in the postseason as the Predators advanced to the Stanley Cup Final.

Dallas Stars Daily Links: Can Hanzal and Methot Help Fix the Penalty Kill?
(Wed, 19 Jul 2017 05:00:00 GMT)
The Dallas Stars already know they will not win another regular season unless their league-worst penalty kill improves. If they want to make another Stanley Cup run, GM Jim Nill estimates they will need a minimum top-12 special-teams performance — which means a steep improvement on the PK will be critical. Martin Hanzal knows exactly why the Stars went after him, and that’s exactly what he plans to bring to the party, writes Sean Shapiro for "Hopefully I can help with that," Hanzal said Tuesday during his formal introduction. "Hopefully I can bring my size (6-foot-3, 220 pounds), my penalty-kill specialist, my size in front of the net, and I think we'll be fine." Hanzal's faceoffs will

NHL evaluator assesses Panthers’ pickups
(Tue, 18 Jul 2017 16:03:00 GMT)
So what exactly are the Heat and Panthers getting with their July veteran acquisitions? We offer two scouts’ opinions about Heat pickup Kelly Olynyk here. For reaction on the Panthers’ moves, we solicited the view of a veteran NHL Eastern Conference front office executive who has studied all of Florida’s pickups. First, some perspective: After averaging just 2.5 goals per game last season (23rd in the league), the Panthers lost four forwards — Jaromir Jagr, Reilly Smith, Jonathan Marchessault and Jussi Jokinen --- who scored 72 of Florida’s 205 goals. The three forwards signed (Evgeni Dadonov, Radim Vrbata, Michael Haley) scored 52, with Dadonov’s 30 coming in Russia. In May, they also added
