The NHL coach of the year race is a tight one; reward teams for drafting well?; and more.
One week from now, the NHL will have one more (half) weekend of regular season action before the playoffs begin. Other than the start of the hockey season – when hope abounds for not only 16 teams, but all 30 – that’s the best time of year for me.

Why no consideration for Karlsson?; will the Flames make the playoffs?; and more.
I’m back from vacation and ready to get to the questions that have been piling up in my mailbag. But I saw a couple inquiries from folks wondering why their question hasn’t been answered, so I feel the need to stress the fact I can’t get to each and every question readers submit.

Did the Leafs overpay 'Grabbo'?; who will the Habs draft?; the makeup of our Top 50 list; and more.
Adam is away, so the THN staff picks up the mailbag an answers your questions. Mr. Proteau will return to action next week. Do you think Mikhail Grabovski’s $27.

Are the Rangers good enough for an extended post-season run?; origin of "last minute of play"; and more.
Greetings. This is the last mailbag I’ll be answering for a couple weeks - vacation time beckons - but that doesn’t mean you should stop sending in your questions.

Will the Panthers be active?; is James Wisniewski available?; Steve Mason to Toronto?; and more.
With the trade deadline three days away, I’m ready (I think) for the one time all year I’ll answer all trade-related questions in the mailbag.

Why hasn't the Wings star won the Hart Trophy?; are players overpaid?; and more.
Hey Adam, I was wondering the possibility of Rick Nash being traded to St. Louis? He played for Ken Hitchcock before. Do you think that would be a good fit for him? Ken Fish, Kenora, Ont.

Will the Red Wings make a play for one or both of Nashville's FA defensemen?; butchering player names; and more.
Good Friday to you – and to Scott Gomez, who, rumor has it, went to Disney World after scoring his first goal in more than a year Thursday night.

Is Adam Larsson in the running for rookie of the year?; trade Mike Green or Alex Semin?; and more.
After a week’s absence, the mailbag returns – and this time (just like every time) it’s personal. As always, if you don’t see your question answered here, be sure you check the THN magazine and listen to THN Radio on Sirius/XM to see if I dealt with it in one of those forums.

The Ottawa defender has a huge lead in points, so will he be named the best in the league at his position? Plus much more.
It’s amazing that people are calling for mandatory helmets in NHL warmups after just one frightening accident, yet after numerous horrific eye injuries, mandated visors still isn’t a priority.

Was five games too much for the Bruins agitator?; why is Crosby the face of the NHL?; and more.
The curious Mike Cammalleri/Rene Bourque trade turned the NHL on its ear Thursday evening, but it was just the beginning of what is expected to be a busy buildup to the Feb.

Is Magnus Paajarvi not as good as advertised?; should the Capitals turn to Holtby?; are the Flyers still a contender?; and more.
Lots of news this week in the NHL – and much of it was of the non-ideal variety, including bad concussion news on Sidney Crosby, Claude Giroux and Chris Pronger.
