All the other major hockey nations have been done, so now it's time to debate the best Canadian players.

There'll be a new crop of fresh faces in the NHL this season. We count down the most likely to win rookie of the year.

We countdown the players who we'll miss the most after they're unable to find an NHL job this summer.
There are a number of unrestricted free agents still available on the market, but not all will find a job. This week we take a little time to lament the loss of some NHL players; those for whom age, injury history and/or eroding skills have conspired to mean they’ve likely skated on their last sheet of NHL ice.

With the Pens crowned as champions, we look back at the best displays of skill in what was an epic playoff season.
Well, that’s all folks; another NHL season come and gone. (What are we going to do with ourselves?) Sure, we’ve got the NHL awards this week, the draft next weekend and free agency July 1, but by the second week of July we’re into the dog days of summer.
