Op-Ed: Vancouver Canucks? Vancouver Smucks! This fan is outta here!

There is pain in being a fan of a professional sports team. It comes with the territory. Ask a Seattle Seahawk fan what they felt in the moments — weeks, months — following Superbowl XLIX and they'll tell you — pain. Lots of it.

Carolina Hurricanes trade captain Eric Staal to New York Rangers

One of the most talked about deals in these weeks leading up to Monday's trade deadline has at last been consumed. Eric Staal, long the face of the Carolina Hurricanes franchise, has been traded to the New York Rangers.

Op-Ed: Vancouver Canucks on a losing streak, heading for high draft pick

If there are any Vancouver Canuck fans, any hockey fans anywhere, who are of the opinion the Canucks have any chance whatever of winning the Stanley Cup this year then state your case in the comments section below. Or forever hold your peace.

Op-Ed: Change? What change? Can Toronto Maple Leafs win this year?

Maybe the more ardent Toronto Maple Leafs fan among you can provide the reasoning behind the notion that the team has made the kind of changes that will show up in the standings. That will vault them into the playoffs for the 2nd time in umpteen years.

New York Rangers use compliance buyout to jetison Brad Richards

The New York Rangers used their second and final compliance buyout on Brad Richards. Buying him out saves the club $6.67 million in cap space but over the next 12 years he must be paid two-thirds of his remaining contract, a total of $12.6 million.

NHL rumor du jour: Vancouver Canucks to name Jim Benning G.M.

Vancouver - This rumor has been around for a month, but it's now a rumor closer to fruition. Jim Benning, currently an assistant GM with the Boston Bruins, may be named this week as the new GM for the Vancouver Canucks.

Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers to continue playoff history

The Montreal Canadiens' 3-1 win over the Bruins in Boston in game 7 of their second round series sends them up against the New York Rangers to fight for the right to play in the Stanley Cup final. The two clubs have met in the postseason 14 times.

Op-Ed: P.K. Subban has more heart than entire Maple Leafs organization

What will the Leafs do if the Montreal Canadiens win the Stanley Cup? The discrepancy between the Leafs and Habs speaks volumes to Toronto's perpetual patheticism (my word).

Matt Cooke suspended 7 games for taking out knee of Tyson Barrie

He was at it again, Minnesota Wild forward Matt Cooke, and as a result the NHL is at him again. This time,for taking out Tyson Barrie of the Colorado Avalanche at the knee with a hit Don Cherry called "ridiculous," Cooke was given a 7 game suspension.

Red Wings clinch 23rd consecutive playoff berth against Pens

The Detroit Red Wings didn't win the battle Wednesday night but they won the war. The Wings lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins, 4-3, but gained a point by taking it to extra-time. That one point clinched the Wings' 23rd straight playoff appearance.

Op-Ed: Maple Leafs and Les Canadiens each have poor off-seasons to date

For two hockey clubs considered flagship NHL franchises - can you still say that about the Leafs? - neither Toronto nor Montreal has done much this off-season to suggest a return to winning. Each added the ubiquitous 'depth' guys and that's about it.

Op-Ed: Kings are built to compete for years to come

With a roster that is finally coming to fruition, and players like Anze Kopitar, Drew Doughty, and Mike Richards signed to long-term deals, the Kings team that has suddenly emerged as a Western Conference powerhouse will be together for a long time.

Vancouver Canucks out of playoffs, now comes Roberto Luongo trade

Duncan Keith's holiday now over, back in Blackhawks line-up

Duncan Keith's suspension is over and it has worked out nicely for the Chicago Blackhawks, and Keith. He got 5 games for running Vancouver Canuck Daniel Sedin and elbowing him hard to the head. Keith has completed what was arguably a welcome lay-off.

Another Maple Leafs loss, playoffs officially look like longshot

This Maple Leafs season with periods of strong play, and results, throughout, has for their fans now taken a turn for the...frightening. If Thursday's 2-1 loss to the slumping San Jose Sharks was worrisome then more so is Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Caps.
