This week we count down the best all-time NHLers who played into their 40s and still managed to have an impact.
Dwayne Roloson shut out the Eastern Conference-leading Philadelphia Flyers Tuesday; it was his fourth shutout of the season - not bad for a guy who turned 41 years old in October.

In honor of The Great One's 50th birthday, we recall some of his biggest accomplishments in his illustrious career.
When he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1999, Wayne Gretzky said, “In 10 years, players will be better than I was.” More than a decade later, that prediction represents one of the few times in life Gretzky didn’t get it right.

Looking back at the 2010 off-season, we rank the best-of-the-best additions to NHL lineups.
The NHL’s off-season acquisition game is fraught with peril. Take a look at my worst free agent signings of the summer of 2008 and you’ll see that two (Wade Redden and Mike Commodore) are now playing in the American League; two (Michael Ryder and Bryce Salvador) have been candidates to have their salaries dumped in the AHL; and Ron Hainsey will earn $4.

Over the years the art of goalies handling the puck has been fine-tuned with Martin Brodeur standing as the model passer.
The importance of a good puck-handling goalie hasn’t been as big a part of the NHL for the past few years, but it has its roots as far back as Jacques Plante, who would occasionally roam well out of his crease.

Hockey players may not be the most vocal athletes, but as this week's list points out, they often come up with great one-liners.
This being the first Top 10 of 2011, we thought we’d take one last look back at 2010. Everyday at THN.com (or pretty much everyday) you can find a new “Say What?!?” feature, billed as a shocking, funny or noteworthy quote from personalities around the NHL.

In recognition of some of the best performances from the WJC, we count down the top all-time point producers.
The World Junior Championship is underway and one thing is for sure, we’re never going to see scoring numbers like we used to. That’s not a complaint, we’ll take better competition any day of the week.

With some impressive performances from first-year players, we count down the top candidates for rookie of the year.
When the NHL hands out its hardware in June it will have been seven seasons since Barret Jackman won the Calder Trophy. Never known as an offensive dynamo, Jackman racked up 190 PIM and a plus-23 rating in a shutdown role for St.

As Sidney Crosby holds a nine-point lead in the NHL scoring race, we count down the best points per game seasons.
All the talk in NHL circles recently has been around Sidney Crosby and the points he’s been putting up this season. On pace for about 136, Sid is set to score the best points-per-game average of the past 10 years, moving ahead of Joe Thornton’s 2005-06 clip of 1.

With some familiar faces and promising prospects, we countdown the top scorers from the NHL's farm league.
It’s not often we give the American League much love around these parts (“these parts” being the Top 10, not THN). But we thought it was about time we looked at some AHLers and what they’re up to down on the proverbial farms.

We countdown players who scored the fewest goals, while still managing to post 100 points.
It was brought to our attention Tuesday that Henrik Sedin is on pace to net 100 points this season, but score just seven goals. That would be a feat unparalleled in NHL history.

We count down the best scorers in the KHL who had a previous career in the NHL.
Kontinental League teams have played 24 to 29 games and since we don’t often give the KHL a lot of love around here – not because we don’t love the KHL, with its low-scoring games devoid of almost any physicality outside of pure thuggery such as the kind displayed by Vityaz Chekhov – we decided it was about time.

Even with a 49-year Stanley Cup drought in its past, Chicago's top 10 is still a tough list to crack.
With 84 years of history behind them, it takes a lot to be considered one of the greatest Chicago Blackhawks (or Black Hawks) of all-time, 49-year Stanley Cup drought or no.
