Mike Green Set for Surgery, Out Four to Six Weeks

The Washington Capitals have announced that defenceman Mike Green will be out another four to six weeks after abdominal surgery. He has played in just 10 of 43 games this season after suffering his first setback in the form of a strained groin muscle that cost him 23 games from November to January. Upon his […]

van Riemsdyk Out Indefinitely with Concussion

The Philadelphia Flyers are adding yet another name to their concussion slate this season, with James van Riemsdyk out indefinitely. The injury was announced an hour before the Flyers took to the ice at Bridgestone Arena for its morning skate. “James was hit in the head in each of our last two games,” Flyers GM […]

Carcillo Out for the Season

Chicago Blackhawks forward Daniel Carcillo is out for the season. While it would certainly be in bad taste to celebrate or at least chuckle at an injury to a player, the sort of poetic justice in this case is, in my view, worth at least a grin. Turns out Carcillo, in trying to take out […]

Cammalleri Traded to Calgary Flames

Just a day after lipping off about the current status of the Montreal Canadiens, Mike “We Play Like Losers” Cammalleri has been traded to the Calgary Flames. The Habs traded the forward and goalie Karri Ramo along with a fifth round draft pick to the Flames for Rene Bourque, Patrick Holland and a second round […]

Mike Cammalleri: “We Play Like Losers”

Montreal Canadiens forward Mike Cammalleri was booed by Habs fans during his team’s 3-0 loss to the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night. To make matters worse, the Montreal “faithful” cheered former Canadien Jaroslav Halak while he played in net for the opposing team. Now that is a cynical crowd. “I can’t accept that we will display […]

Brad Marchand Suspended Five Games, Bruins/Canucks Rivalry Heats Up

The Boston Bruins will be without Brad Marchand for five games after the winger low-bridged Vancouver’s Sami Salo when the Bruins took on the Canucks on Saturday in a Stanley Cup Final rematch. You can check out the hit here. On the play, Marchand received a five minute major penalty for “clipping” and a game […]

Opinion: NHLPA Blocks League Realignment Plan

The NHLPA has blocked the much-discussed realignment plan that would have shifted the NHL from six divisions to four conferences. The plan was approved by the board of governors but it will not go ahead next season because the players’ union has blocked it. “On the evening of December 5, 2011, the NHL informed the […]

Opinion: Burke Says “There is No Accountability” in Hockey

According to NHL numbers, fighting is down significantly this season. Through Wednesday, there was an average of just 0.8 fighting majors per game in comparison to 1.2 at the same time last year. This, according to Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke, represents a “dangerous turn in our game.” Burke is, like many hockey fans, […]

Reminder: Scotia Hockey’s Hockey High Five Contest

Hey gang, this is just a friendly reminder of Scotia Hockey’s Hockey High Five Contest. Because our pals at Scotia Hockey have graciously provided us with a load of contest goodies as of late, we thought we’d take this opportunity to do a last little push for their contest. What’s the Prize? The TOP PRIZE […]

Tortorella’s “Conspiracy” Rant Leads to $30,000 Fine

New York Rangers coach John Tortorella has been fined $30,000 by the NHL after his comments following the Winter Classic. “They called a penalty shot, which I still don’t understand,” he said Monday. “I’m not sure if NBC got together with the refs to turn this into an overtime game. I thought the game was […]
