Would Petry be better-served playing on a much-better club? Absolutely. Would he be a good get for TB in addressing their current needs? Yes. Does he make sense, given his pending UFA status and the...

Unless he gets games this season and Gudas is moved in the summer, Witkowski is almost surely going to hit Group VI status. However, if the org. wants to keep him around (and I've previously openly...

The Islanders only had two full days of rest, not a week. TB and NYI squared off last Saturday (the 15th) before going at it again this past Tuesday (the 18th).

Yep, you know a jersey is super snazzy when it's base design was originally conceived for and appears in a chain restaurant's advertising.

Seriously, Google "Sidney Crosby" and "Tim Horton's".

This, in conjunction with the coaching shake-ups, amounts to a resounding about-face for the Leafs organization. I mean, just last year you had now lame-duck GM Nonis boasting about having a healthy...

By no means do I think Steve Yzerman and Jon Cooper were merely paying lip service in lauding Ryan Callahan but both also have strong incentives to say he's the best thing since sliced bread.

Niskanen provides on-ice skills at a position the club was lacking. Callahan does not. That's the bottom-line.

That said, my preference was always Stralman because TB, even without a bona fide...

They could have signed 2/3 tweener -- which, if we're being honest, is what Callahan is at evens -- for much less money and term. It's going to be hard justifying keeping Callahan in the top-6 at...

He's a value buy, for sure. He's probably not going to fly off the shelf on July 1 so, depending on how the trade and free agent markets shape up, he's a guy to circle back around to.
