In the mailbag: Who should the Oilers take? What of Kirill Kabanov? And who is the best player of all-time?
Adam Proteau is on a radical sabbatical, so we’ve again enlisted the help of THN staffers to open up the mailbag in his stead. The man who name sakes this feature’s title returns April 9, so keep those questions coming.

In the mailbag: who will be better next season?; stopping the Columbus soundtrack? Norris nonsense? NHL boycott?
As I prepare for a week off the grid, I have a single overriding hope: that the NHL makes it through the next seven-to-10 days without either another ugly instance of on-ice blows to player melons or league brass’ bungling that traditionally follows such incidents.

Adam’s away, so other THN staffers have graciously stepped in to answer your queries this week. Proteau returns March 26, so keep those questions coming.

Has the NHL become too politically correct? Is there a suspension conspiracy? Should the NHL contract? What's up with Ovie?
I’m off for two of the next three weeks, but the THN mailbag, much like mail deliverers, never stops for anyone. So keep sending your questions and my cohorts will endeavor to answer them.

In the mailbag: Too harsh on the Kings? Why no Bruins analysis? Are we headed for another lockout?
Nobody said all NHL trade deadline days would be a thrill a minute, did they? There were times Wednesday I thought GMs were making deals just to meet some contractually-obligated number chosen beforehand by the TV networks.

Fill-ins for Olympic NHLers? Whitney's worth? Keeping rentals? Canada's logo? Cole's voice? Caps' Cup hopes? Keeping Kaberle?
Adam is away on this grey Friday in Toronto, but the Olympic spirit is peaking after a couple exciting games Thursday night. This week, THN staffers fill in to answer your questions as the second-last weekend of the Vancouver Games is on the horizon.

In the mailbag: why do the world championships suck? Smelling salts? Leafs' future? And Lindros or Crosby?
Happy Friday and happy Olympics to everybody. And remember – by this time next week, we could have massive upsets, crushing injuries and wanton destruction of furniture to worry about, so let’s cherish this innocent era while it lasts.

Proteau opens the mailbag and finds questions about: the week's big deals; why players turn down Edmonton; and more.
Well, well, well – looks like the NHL’s craftiest, most unpredictable GM is at it again. More on that in the first of the great questions from this week’s mailbag.

Proteau answers questions about Detroit's playoff hopes; Willie Mitchell; fighting in the Olympics; and Calgary trades.
Happy Friday, y’all/you all. We’re back to our multiple-question mailbag format – and as per usual, we’ve been inundated with a variety of inquiries on a slew of topics, so let’s get right to it.
by Adam Proteau - January 22, 2010 1:05 PM UTC
Proteau answers the one question he's received a lot over the past week.
The THN mailbag received a good number of queries on the same subject this week. And since the answer to that topic is going to need some extended elaboration, it will be our lone subject until next Friday.
by Adam Proteau - January 15, 2010 12:50 PM UTC
In the mailbag: Lasergate; best hockey city; Canada's woes; the Oiler doldrums; healthy scratches; and more.
At a time when “teabaggers” are giving a bad name to a noble historical movement, it takes a few vacation weeks away from you “mailbaggers” to make me appreciate your continued contributions.
