As three chapters of the Professional Hockey Writer's Association decide to pass on award voting some are suggesting the results will be tainted. But why?
For you fans who might not be aware - and, in reality, there is very little reason for you to be - the Professional Hockey Writers Association and the NHL are currently locking horns over the treatment of one of the PHWA’s members.

Jordan Subban, brother of Montreal's P.K., has scouts excited and he put his skills on full display at the minor midget all-Ontario championship.
It’s a little unfair, really. But you watch the shirt-flapping speed, the sense of authority when he carries the puck, the passion that comes through on each and every shift and you can’t help but compare defenseman Jordan Subban to his older brother.

While the Red Wings have been the West's flagship franchise for years, the Canucks plan on taking a run at that title this season.
DETROIT – When the Detroit Red Wings look across the ice during warmup Wednesday night, they’ll be looking at a mirror image. It appears the Vancouver Canucks have grown up and become the Red Wings, minus the Stanley Cups, of course.

The son of Tie Domi is expected to go the USHL-college route, but was the announcement intended to place him on an OHL team of choice?
Is Tie Domi’s recent announcement that his talented son, Max, intends to pursue the college hockey route in the United States a genuine intention or an attempt to have him drafted by the Ontario League team of his choice? With the OHL Cup – which is basically the all-Ontario minor midget championship – on the horizon this week, we’ll likely find out soon.

Why now for the Maple Leafs sale?; no appetite for knee-jerk reaction in Boca Raton; and a new star in the OHL?

Did he know it was Pacioretty? Did he try to hurt him? What should the punishment be? Questions with no sure answers continue to come up the day after.
BROSSARD, Que. – As Max Pacioretty lays in a hospital bed in Montreal with a fracture of the fourth cervical vertebrae and a severe concussion, wondering what lies in the future in hockey and life, it’s impossible to know what is going through his mind.

While the Bruins defenseman didn't intend to injure the Canadiens winger, the reckless play is still worth a few games off.
MONTREAL – Under normal circumstances, Zdeno Chara would almost certainly have an appointment sometime Wednesday with Colin Campbell. But since Campbell can’t deal with any discipline issues surrounding the Boston Bruins because his son Gregory plays for them, Chara will find himself speaking with Mike Murphy at some point soon.

The Oilers rookie lost money and a chance at some hardware for something he shouldn't have been doing... plus, why no Clutterbuck suspension?
The hockey culture never ceases to amaze. Legions of old time hockey lovers have spent the past couple of days tripping over themselves extolling Taylor Hall for all that character he showed in picking a scrap with Derek Dorsett.

It wasn't the most exciting deadline day ever, but there were still plenty of good and questionable moves made.

What's behind the Panthers possibly trading Weiss, Booth?; Why the Canes won't add to the payroll; Leafs looking to deal; and more.
A few musings as we close in on the 2011 trade deadline: TANKING PANTHERS? It’s one thing to trade veterans with expiring contracts such as Cory Stillman and Bryan McCabe, but there should be an immediate investigation into the Florida Panthers if they trade Stephen Weiss and David Booth Monday and get nothing but picks and prospects in return.

The Magnificent One's recent statement about NHL discipline led to a lot of flak coming back, but if he keeps up the cause we should listen.
It was as predictable as the swallows flocking to Capistrano. No sooner had the words of rebuke for the NHL come out of Mario Lemieux’s mouth Sunday afternoon than legions of critics emerged to point out his hypocrisy.
