Caring Corson

Jeff Selent, Newmarket, Ont. On Aug. 12, I attended the Hockey Night in Barrie charity event to benefit the Royal Victoria Hospital and its regional cancer center in Barrie, Ont.

Modano should have retired a Star

by The Hockey News - August 12, 2010 5:55 PM EDT

Glen Cuthbert, Hamilton, Ont. Mike Modano has let me down. When he came out on the ice for a farewell lap at the Xcel Energy Center wearing a North Stars jersey, he had me and most of the hockey world believing that he had played his last NHL game.

Tired of salary cap manipulation

by The Hockey News - August 12, 2010 2:24 PM EDT

Josh, Flin Flon, Man. I'm sick of these front-loaded manipulations of the salary cap. If a team wants to shell out $10 million to a greedy Ilya Kovalchuk, then by all means let them, but they better be able to pay him.

Cap is communism and that's great

by The Hockey News - August 10, 2010 5:52 PM EDT

Kyle Skatberg, Fort Collins, Colo. To the fans who say the cap "promotes athletic communism": The cap is for this exact reason. The Hawks made the mistake of trying to pay for a Stanley Cup.

Champion's league or league of champions?

by The Hockey News - August 9, 2010 1:34 PM EDT

Corey Kendall, St. John's, Nfld. Parity or dynasties? Which do hockey fans want these days? I just don't know anymore. When the NHL emerged from the lockout in 2005, it brought in the salary cap and fans were excited because now every team was on an even playing field; the Stanley Cup truly was up for grabs.

The classy Flyers organization

by The Hockey News - August 9, 2010 1:29 PM EDT

Eric Rothstein, Philadephia I just want to let everyone know what a classy organization the Philadelphia Flyers are. My father passed on this past July 13th and the Flyers organization reached out to help me.

Smart teams should benefit in salary cap world

by The Hockey News - August 5, 2010 10:56 AM EDT

Mark Thompson, Dekalb, Ill. Being a Hawks fan, all you hear is complaints about the salary cap. But the cap is needed. One thing that should be changed is teams should benefit from drafting well.

An inspiring story

by The Hockey News - August 4, 2010 10:17 AM EDT

Jose Dino, Vancouver Ken Campbell's cover story in the August 2 edition of The Hockey News was truly inspiring. Chris Stewart and Wayne Simmonds beat the odds to become NHL players with bright futures.

Sharks' success

by The Hockey News - August 1, 2010 11:07 AM EDT

Josh Barr, Flin Flon, Man. I read Edward Fraser's blog about Doug Wilson and his views on his franchise. He is absolutely correct, the Sharks have been one of the most successful teams this decade and have been constantly topping the standings each and every year.

Dreams can come true

by The Hockey News - July 30, 2010 2:43 PM EDT

Glen Cuthbert, Hamilton, Ont. Thanks for the awesome cover story about Chris Stewart and Wayne Simmonds in the Aug. 2 issue. When I was growing up, our family didn't have the money for organized hockey either.

Not so Nasty

by The Hockey News - July 28, 2010 11:01 AM EDT

Gabbi Riggi, Edison, N.J. I would just like to extend a word of thanks to Paul Bissonnette. After closing down his Twitter, he turned to Facebook and stayed in touch with his fans.

Tired of the Pens-Caps talk

by The Hockey News - July 26, 2010 11:09 AM EDT

Ben Jenkins, Goshen, Ky. I am sick of the talk about the Penguins-Capitals rivalry. Games featuring them are not a dire competition between the two teams, but rather a way for the NHL to showcase Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Alex Ovechkin.

If the NHL expanded into one market, where should it go?
