Stewart and Simmonds an extraordinary story

by The Hockey News - July 24, 2010 8:21 AM EDT

Charlie Barr, Kingston, Ont. Kudos to Ken Campbell for writing the best article I have ever read in THN (Urban Legends, August 2). The story of these two remarkable young men truly describes the essence of hockey – perseverance, determination and an unflinching desire to achieve their goals in the face of extraordinarily long odds.


Don't blame the cap, blame the GM

by The Hockey News - July 21, 2010 11:51 AM EDT

James Neeson, Toronto Everyone needs to stop whining about the salary cap. It's been around for several years now and every team has to comply with the cap.


Sad about Simon

by The Hockey News - July 19, 2010 9:03 PM EDT

Steve Lourenco, Dover, Ohio As a lifelong Flyers fan I am saddened to see the Simon Gagne being traded. If the NHL did not have a salary cap, Gagne would still be a Flyer and probably for the remainder of his career.


How the NHL can start free agent fever

by The Hockey News - July 18, 2010 9:07 PM EDT

Glen Cuthbert, Hamilton, Ont. With the recent media hype surrounding the "Big 3" NBA free agents (LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade), I began to wonder: Could the same thing happen in the NHL? It's not likely, but what if the NHL made it happen basically every year? The answer is simple: don't allow contract extensions.


Feaster good, but too late

by The Hockey News - July 17, 2010 9:09 PM EDT

Logan Gordon, Calgary It's becoming hard to follow my beloved Flames this off-season, especially after they announced Jay Feaster as assistant GM.


RFA deals killing the dynasty

by The Hockey News - July 13, 2010 7:53 PM EDT

David Zuba, Brigantine, N.J. As Donald Fehr presumably gets ready to take the reins of power to the NHLPA and lead the players into the next round of CBA negotiations with the NHL in two years, I am left to ponder what issues threaten the league at this time.


Goalies ain't worth what the used to be

by The Hockey News - July 11, 2010 7:22 PM EDT

Joe LaValle, Fishkill, N.Y. Does Ken Campbell have crystal ball? Because his May 10th Goalie Ga-Ga column is spot on for this off-season. After the success of names like Mike Leighton and Antti Niemi in this year's playoffs, it is clear that goalie is not the make-or-break position it was assumed to be.


The gentle side of Probert

by The Hockey News - July 8, 2010 10:17 PM EDT

Steve Pyle, Greenacres, Fla. I was sad to hear we lost NHL 'tough guy' Bob Probert. During his career, it seemed like he was fighting in every game, maybe every period.


Awards don't belong in Vegas

by The Hockey News - July 7, 2010 10:19 PM EDT

Ryan Porter, Lower Onslow, N.S. I enjoy watching the NHL Awards, but Las Vegas is the wrong place to have them.                        Hockey doesn't belong in Las Vegas.


No hope for Thrashers

by The Hockey News - July 7, 2010 10:15 PM EDT

Ryan Bricker, Oshawa, Ontario About five years ago, I switched allegiance from the Toronto Maple Leafs to the Atlanta Thrashers, in large part due to Ilya Kovalchuk.


R.I.P. Bob Probert

by The Hockey News - July 5, 2010 9:20 PM EDT

Joe Connor, Pennsville, N.J. It was unbelievably sad to read of the passing of Bob Probert. There is no good age to leave this earth, but 45 is way too young.


Have new teams wear old city jerseys

by The Hockey News - July 5, 2010 8:48 PM EDT

Brett Hornall, Vancouver I read Edward Fraser's article in the most recent THN Fully Loaded magazine about how the old Hartford Whalers jerseys are still super popular and fans can again buy them online.
