Have something you'd like to know about the NHL or have something to say about what The Hockey News has written? Every Friday, columnist Adam Proteau will respond to your emails in The Hockey News.com's mailbag feature.

In the week-ending mailbag: getting rid of the trapezoid; Forsberg's return; NHL suspensions; and more.
If NHL GMs keep making swaps of consequence far before Feb. 28, the poor schmucks who work the hours-long trade deadline TV shows are going to need more than a little Irish Cream in their coffees to make it through the day.

Is Colorado's defenseman a top rookie?; should Sutter go to Ottawa?; expansion or relocation?; and more.
Happy Friday. Want to celebrate it as dozens of hockey fans do every week? All you have to do is send me a question - or, if you insist, a letter and include a self-addressed stamped envelope if you want it returned - and I’ll do my best to answer it here, in the magazine or on THN Radio.

In the mailbag: Drury done?; will Gretzky return?; new playoff format idea; and much more.
If you’re reading this, you probably know the mailbag routine pretty well by now. You send me questions and I respond to a selection of them – sometimes online, sometimes in the THN magazine and sometimes on the THN Radio Show.

In the week-ending mailbag: will the Canes make the post-season?; should Vancouver trade Luongo?; and much more.
With Evgeni Nabokov signed by Detroit late Thursday night, another goalie has entered a flooded netminding market. There’s no assurance Nabokov will clear waivers – just ask twice-bitten Blues GM Doug Armstrong – but as I noted in last week’s mailbag, those who believe another goalie (such as Florida’s Tomas Vokoun or Toronto’s J-S Giguere) will be able to fetch a top prospect or player in a trade are fooling themselves.

What's the goalie market like and who's available?; why no THNers on the Power and Influence list?; and more.
If you’re really hoping to have your question answered in this space – or in the pages of The Hockey News, or on THN Radio – might I suggest you put a little money on the board to motivate me to do so? Just messing with you.
by The Hockey News - January 7, 2011 2:40 PM EST
Can Vancouver's rookie hang in the race?; too much Crosby?; what are future considerations?; and more.
With Adam on an extended Christmas holiday – returning next week to answer your questions – THN staffers address your queries on this calm, Friday afternoon.

In the Christmas Eve mailbag: Is a Nabokov return imminent?; how great is Datsyuk?; where's Ovie?; and more.
OK, so I lied – this is my final mailbag for a couple weeks. But keep your questions coming and I'll get to them upon my return. Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season.
by Adam Proteau - December 17, 2010 12:40 PM EST
In the mailbag: Compensation levels for Parise; will Malkin recapture his magic?; will Khabibulin go to jail?; and more.
I don’t know about you, but when I saw Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau cursing like the late Sam Kinston on HBO’s 24/7 series the other day, I was mortified.
by Adam Proteau - December 10, 2010 12:20 PM EST
In the week-ending mailbag: Is Gomez really tradeable?; how to get rid of Sean Avery?; and Don Cherry.
This is the second-to-last mailbag I’ll be doing for a few weeks. After next Friday’s entry, I’m off until the week of Jan.
by Adam Proteau - December 3, 2010 10:55 AM EST
In the week-ending mailbag, Adam Proteau answers on Zdeno Chara, a Martin Brodeur trade, Jim Balsillie and more.
It’s mailbag time once again. Thanks for all the mail you’ve put in my virtual bag – and thanks for not cracking any jokes about that last sentence.
by Adam Proteau - November 26, 2010 2:10 PM EST
Adam tackles your question on: a Jarome Iginla trade; becoming a journalist; award criteria; and more.
Vancouver’s Rick Rypien was granted an indefinite leave of absence by the Canucks Thursday. Let’s hope he can take on his problem (or problems) and return as a productive athlete.
by Adam Proteau - November 19, 2010 1:50 PM EST
Does Evgeni Malkin belong in the best player debate?; who should the Bruins trade?; and a new idea to spice up the regular season.
I’m going to set this week’s AA file up as if I were lame-o rapper will.i.am: This is a mailbag column. You should read it. It has words in it.
