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.
by Adam Proteau - May 13, 2011 2:11 PM EDT
Adam answers your questions on Jimmy Howard, relocation to Seattle, the Canadiens defense and more.
If it’s Friday and it’s online at THN.com, then it almost certainly must be the mailbag. Below are a selection of questions you – yes, YOU – submitted via email.
by Adam Proteau - May 6, 2011 2:35 PM EDT
Will the Sens rebound or rebuild next season?; are the Capitals becoming the Sharks?; Iginla, Luongo in 2014?; and more.
If you’re wondering about sending in a question to the mailbag, wonder no more and drop me a line. I can’t get to them all, but make yours interesting and I’ll try to answer it either online, in THN’s magazine mailbag, or on THN Radio.

Which forward combination is the best?; would players rather go to Quebec than Winnipeg?; and more.
The second round of the 2011 playoffs started last night. I went 7-1 with my first round picks and nailed four series in the precise number of games.

Who's next in Jersey: Kirk Muller? Ken Hitchcock? Someone else?; GM Murray's odd Ottawa extension; and more.
This is a birthday mailbag - mine, not the mailbag’s. How old am I? How dare you. Just get on with the reading of the questions below, OK? Adam, when you cast your vote for the Calder Trophy, do you take potential past NHL experience into consideration? For instance, would you weigh Jeff Skinner and Logan Couture differently? One way to look at it is they're both technically rookies and that's all that matters.

In the week-ending mailbag: How good will the Sens be?; what if Anaheim's Big Three played in Toronto; and more.
Ask yourself: have I submitted a question to the THN.com mailbag yet? Then ask yourself: why am I letting some random hockey writer tell me what to ask myself? While you’re thinking up answers for yourself, enjoy the questions and responses below.
by Adam Proteau - April 1, 2011 12:02 PM EDT
Can the Flyers survive with Bobrovsky?; Fleury for the Hart?; Marchand for the Calder?; and much more.
Happy April Fool’s Day. There are no prank-like shenanigans in this mailbag – or are there? No, for serious, there aren’t. Instead, it’s just your usual batch of intriguing questions and my answers.
by Adam Proteau - March 25, 2011 3:30 PM EDT
In Adam's triumphant return, he tackles questions on visors, the Ducks, player payment, helmets and more.
Hello. This is a hockey-themed mailbag. Actually, this is the lead-in paragraph to a hockey-themed mailbag. Did you know how difficult it is to write a different lead-in-paragraph to a hockey-themed mailbag after a few years of writing different lead-in-paragraphs to hockey-themed mailbags? Well, it is.
by The Hockey News - March 18, 2011 1:23 PM EDT
In the week-ending mailbag: how did the Avs drop off so fast?; how to become a broadcaster; winning percentage; and more.
Top of the mornin’ after to ya. Hopefully your March Madness brackets aren’t busted, your favorite NHL team is still alive in the playoff hunt and, if the weather where you are is anything like it is in Toronto on this Friday, you’re able to get outside and enjoy it.
by The Hockey News - March 11, 2011 2:05 PM EST
With Adam away THN staffers come out to play and answer your questions on rookies, Adam Larsson and big rinks.
Adam is off on vacation, so THN staffers step up to answer your queries this week and next. Adam will return to the mailbag March 25, refreshed and ready to go.
by Adam Proteau - March 4, 2011 2:45 PM EST
In the week-ending mailbag: How much do the Hawks miss 'Big Buff'?; what's up in Atlanta?; and much more.
A good Friday to you all. This will be my last mailbag for the next two weeks - a working vacation beckons - but, as usual, my trusty THN colleagues will step in and answer your questions to the best of their ability.
by Adam Proteau - February 25, 2011 3:29 PM EST
With the NHL trade deadline three days away, Adam answers your transaction-related questions.
As I write this, it’s T-minus 72 hours or so until the NHL trade deadline passes. As such, I’m dealing with far more trade proposals from all you aspiring GMs out there.
by Adam Proteau - February 18, 2011 10:19 AM EST
In the week-ending mailbag: What will the Wings do when Lidstrom retires?; should Crosby come back?; and much more.
We’re 10 days away from the NHL trade deadline and I’m being deluged with questions proposing this deal or that deal. Many, if not most, are too preposterous for me to answer.
