He also rebounded nicely in the postseason with a .915 save percentage, the first time he cracked .900 since the Penguins’ Cup victory in 2010. (Sidenote: Really? Ouch ...) Fleury is entering the final year of his seven-year, $35 million contract, making a base salary of $5.75…

  • Pacioretty ready to become a leader on evolving Habs

    26 Aug 2014 | 7:56 am - When Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin traded defenseman Josh Gorges and allowed captain Brian Gionta to leave as a free agent, he made it clear that it was time for the team's young veterans to assume the duties the two team leaders would leave behind. That message has been received loud and clear by last season's leading scorer. Forward Max Pacioretty sees his role growing in the absence of Gorges and Gionta, both of whom will be playing in the Atlantic Division with the Buffalo Sabres this season. "Now that we're going in a different direction, I feel I'm going to…

Since becoming the Canadiens’ strength and conditioning coach in 2010, Pierre Allard has worked tirelessly at getting players into peak physical condition for the moment they jump onto the ice. A coach who takes the idea of practicing what he preaches to heart, the 42-year-old athlete is a prime example of both strength and conditioning, setting aside time in his jam-packed schedule to prepare for the North American…

  • Dishing Hockey and Donuts with Award-Winning Author Roland Merullo

    Jim Dwyer
    24 Aug 2014 | 9:38 am
    Award-winning author Roland Merullo loves hockey (and donuts) as much as I do. He wrote something to that effect to me and then signed his name in the copy of Lunch with Buddha I had purchased. I haven’t read all of his books, such as the one with a donut on the cover, but I will buy them because I anticipate more hockey, more donut references. But it’s more than that. The magic of Merullo is his thought-provoking style of storytelling. He makes me question my own behavior and beliefs but not in a Thou-shalt, heavy-handed fashion. His fiction is unique yet real, affirming and…
  • Jesus Loves Donuts

    Jim Dwyer
    10 Aug 2014 | 4:55 am
    Jesus loves donuts. I know this because I read it in a wonderful novel: American Savior, by Roland Merullo. A best-selling and award-winning author, Merullo tends to inject subtle donut and/or hockey references into his books. I read Breakfast with Buddha in 2012 and Lunch with Buddha in 2013. Both are gripping stories with believable characters. They traverse America in pursuit of food and spiritual nourishment, but neither novel features a character who loves donuts as much as Jesus. On the campaign trail that crisscrosses the United States—Jesus is running for president—the candidate…

At least from real competitive hockey. Maybe not, though, from pick-up activity. My return to any form of significant exercise other than walking will depend upon what magic the hockey goods might contribute to my healing. I want to alleviate the pain incurred from surgery to fix what medical professionals refer to as athletic pubalgia and/or a sports hernia.

    Scott Zolak is not a Caillou fan. What kind of father, Zolak wondered on Monday, would burden his son with a name that ends in a vowel. Zolak, a world renowned linguist, professional Scrabble player and co-host of the Gresh & Zo show on Boston’s 98.5 Sports Hub, defended his stance by deploying the oldest trick in the linguists’ playbook: referencing Greek mythology and the Boston Bruins. Zolak was bewildered that his comments sparked more reaction from listeners more concerned about the alphabet than chatter about the Bruins trade deadline (today). Bruins President Cam Neely was…

    According to the Toronto Star's Mark Zwolinski, new Maple Leafs assistant GM Kyle Dubas is working very hard to learn the ropes in Toronto... “It’s been a busy summer,” said the new assistant GM. “It’s been an interesting time to come in. In a way it worked out perfectly in that August is a quiet month in the NHL, and it let me get my feet under me.

    I (hi, it's George) was going to leave this one for the morning and the boss to deal with, but I'm captain cold bucket of water during non-charitable-challenge time, so here goes: As Paul noted, the Vancouver Province's Tony Gallagher insists that the NHL expanding to Las Vegas is a "done deal," even if there is no NHL-serviceable rink there as of yet (the Fourth Period's David Pagnotta will fill you in on the inevitability of expansion sooner than later and AEG and MGM Casinos' soon-to-be-built sports facility on the Vegas Strp), even though the Las Vegas Wranglers have…

    26 Aug 2014 | 2:56 pm
    from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province, It wasn’t very long ago that NHL commissioner Gary Bettman was treating talk of expansion as though he was being asked if he’d like an epidemic of Ebola. But recently the nature of the rhetoric has changed so much that the question is becoming not if, but when. And then the ultimate question. Will they be able to limit the number of new teams to just two? Sources close to the situation have indicated Las Vegas is a done deal, the only thing to be determined being which owner will be entitled to proclaim that he brought the first major…
  • Patrick Kane Or Phil Kessel?

    26 Aug 2014 | 10:41 am
    from Ryan Dixon of Sportsnet, Kessel will turn 27 in October, while Kane hits 26 in November. Which player would you consider a bigger gift to your team? The case for Kane: In addition to his sublime skills, Kane loves the spotlight. The guy is a star, pure and simple, a fact exemplified by his Cup-winning goal in 2010 and his Conn Smythe performance in 2013. On the ice, his playmaking and vision are what really set Kane apart. Just seven NHLers have registered more total assists than Kane since he entered the league in 2007–08 and only three of those players—Sidney Crosby, Evgeni…

Nolan likes the fact that, despite the shock of last April’s hasty exit, the Sharks did not tear down the entire roster in a knee-jerk reaction. “I’m sure everyone is disappointed in the way they were put out of the playoffs, but I like the way they didn't panic,” Nolan said. “This team, as a whole, is a good hockey team. They didn't panic. They didn't blow the whole…

    Alex Daugherty
    26 Aug 2014 | 9:39 am
    Even if the left-winger isn't a real scoring threat, he doesn't have to be in order to make a real impact on the team. During the lockout shortened 2012-2013 season, Gabriel Bourque quickly became a favorite among both casual and lifelong Predators fans, because of his potential scoring ability and his obvious grit and speed. Then, this past year, he disappointed us with a paltry  nine goals and 17 assists. But let's face it: he wasn't the only Predator to disappoint us last year. So where's the silver lining? First of all, Bourque's possession numbers improved dramatically. His 5v5 CF…

Most recently, there was a "feud" between Avery, Clune and boxer Riddick Bowe. Apparently, a guy on Twitter decided to chirp Dicky, and tell him he hopes he goes back to rehab.

    How Well Will the Washington Capitals Compete Against the Metropolitan Division in 2014-2015? For years, the Washington Capitals were the dominant force in the old Southeast Division.  Last season, they became a member of the newly formed Metropolitan Division. With a new Division and tougher competition, the Capitals did not perform as well in 2013-2014 like in seasons before.  They were not a playoff team and finished fifth in the Metropolitan Division.  They only missed the NHL Playoffs by three points, but had a losing record within their division.

Lots of hockey minds would go as far as rating each of these men in the top-5 at their positions. However, as the cliché goes, all good things come to an end. With Wilson having run the Sharks for over a decade and McLellan already entering his seventh season as head coach, patience may be running thin. Not only have the Sharks continually disappointed come…
  • New Season, New Opportunity, No Excuses for Jared Cowen

    Callum Fraser
    26 Aug 2014 | 5:13 pm
    Last season was an absolute nightmare for Jared Cowen as the 23-year old defenseman struggled with all aspects of the game. His physical presence was lacking, his skating was subpar to say the least, and his positioning was, for lack of a better word, questionable. We all felt badly for Jared Cowen last year, as something was clearly wrong, but sometimes it was just plain hard to watch. Don’t believe me? Well, here are a few examples:  1. Physical Presence 2. Positioning 3. Skating/Terrible Luck By The Numbers Offensively, Jared Cowen wasn’t declining in production whatsoever. He…
  • The Perks of Being Related to Flyers GM Ron Hextall

    26 Aug 2014 | 3:51 pm
    The Flyers haven’t played a single game yet on Ron Hextall’s watch as GM. But at such an early stage in the first-year GM’s tenure, it sure seems that it pays off to be related to the former goalie. Is it a mere coincidence? Perhaps it’s the familiarity of knowing what he’s getting. Or is Hextall molding the Flyers into his own version of a good old boys network? Whichever it is, being related to Flyers GM Ron Hextall can’t hurt. Or could it? Brett Hextall (right) became the 2nd offseason acquisition related to Flyers GM, Ron Hextall. (Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY…
  • Evaluating Every NHL Team’s “Window”: Metropolitan

    Bill Schoeninger
    26 Aug 2014 | 1:00 pm
    When evaluating a team’s chances to win the Stanley Cup, teams are often judged based on the status of their “window”. A rebuilding team’s window would be closed, but on its way to opening as they acquire young talent and build for the future. Contenders are said to have an open window. In a four-part series, I will be putting each NHL team into one of four categories to evaluate their “window”. The categories are: Closed: This team is not a Stanley Cup contender, and with the current state of their franchise, they are not going to be a contender at any…

  • I’m a Hockey Dad Warrior

    25 Jul 2014 | 10:44 am
    After having successful completed, that is to say survived, the Warrior Dash with Momma last year, I thought it would be a good idea and parent/child bonding opportunity to have another go at it with the Boy and the Devil. Can’t you just sense the Devil’s excitement? And so, just before Christmas, last year I signed the three of us up and turned the kids’ registrations into what the Devil quickly described as “the worst present she’d ever received.” Despite my cross country running passion and self-professed success as a young lad, this family is…
  • An Ode to Me and Other Aging Hockey Dads

    14 Jun 2014 | 7:53 am
    Been a while since I jotted anything here, what with it being summer and all. The Devil’s fully recovered from her broken limb and methinks chomping at the bit to get back on the ice for her final minor hockey season. Yup, final…the end…nuttin’ left for this ole hockey dad to do, but reminisce. As Father’s Day falls tomorrow, I thought it may be appropriate to construct a little ditty for me and my fellow Dads. For those who wish to sing along, this has been roughly written to the tune of Mrs. Robinson (I know not why, but it was the first ballad to pop into my…

  • The Bad and Good of Minor Hockey’s Silly Season?

    8 May 2014 | 9:18 pm
    A few days after my new team’s tryouts concluded I am still sorting through exactly what went down. I thought having gone through it a couple of times previously as a coach and a few times more as a parent that I’d seen it all, but I should know there’s always room in minor hockey to be surprised. I think the Hockey Gods were bound and determined to make my last go round a memorable one.  Minor hockey politics drama might bore the tears outta most, but this coach needs his catharsis so bear with me if you will. A couple of years ago at my first rep tryouts as a rookie head…

    In the 2005-06 season, the Maple Leafs had the second best power play in the league and one of the biggest reasons was Tomas Kaberle’s ability to gain the zone and set up the attack. Any Leaf fan can tell you it was mesmerizing to watch ‘Kabby’ slice up the neutral zone and work the attack like a QB as he glided to open space and found uncovered teammates with ease.
