Probert will be missed

by The Hockey News - July 5, 2010 8:47 PM EDT

Larry Zanni, Calgary As a fan back in the mid-80s, I had a chance to meet Bob Probert. It was after a Canucks game at the old Pacific Coliseum.

Down with the salary cap

by The Hockey News - June 29, 2010 10:31 AM EDT

Scott Saxton, Lasalle, Ont. I hate the NHL salary cap. I am not a Blackhawks fan, but what is happening to their club frustrates me as a fan.

Don't dismiss other Oilers youngsters

by The Hockey News - June 27, 2010 8:35 AM EDT

James Hart, Winnipeg, Man. After being selected first overall by the Edmonton Oilers, Taylor Hall is already facing a lot of public pressure to turn the team's fortunes around.

Don't kick Flyers while they're down

by The Hockey News - June 26, 2010 8:32 AM EDT

Cassie Cerra, Peckville, Pa. The Flyers improbable run that started with the very last game of the regular season did not end the way they dreamed, but it was still an incredible two months of gritty, determined Flyers hockey.

Crosby deserved Hart based on goal-scoring prowess

by The Hockey News - June 24, 2010 8:27 AM EDT

Tom DiPerna, Denver, Colo. With all due respect to Henrik Sedin, Sidney Crosby deserved to win the Hart Trophy for one reason: goals. While assists are an important part of hockey, it is the goals that ultimately decide who wins and who loses games.

Don't insult Canadians

Shame on HHOF

by The Hockey News - June 23, 2010 8:19 AM EDT

John McCormack, Ottawa If Pat Burns does not deserve to be an exception for immediate induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame, then those who have made that decision have long forgotten the rules once taught to them on the outdoor rinks: fairness, compassion, team work and the true honor of our game.

NHL should return to wooden sticks

by The Hockey News - June 22, 2010 8:17 AM EDT

Murray Sinnott, Windsor, Ont. Return to traditional wooden hockey sticks. The NHL should have standards for sticks. Baseball has a simple standard for bats: they must be made of wood, period.

Officiating needs to be consistent

by The Hockey News - June 20, 2010 8:12 AM EDT

Tim Wesley, Cranberry Township, Pa. There is no better sport than hockey and there is no better hockey than in the NHL playoffs. Even so, playoff hockey could be better if the officiating were more consistent.

The best game you can't name

by The Hockey News - June 16, 2010 10:05 PM EDT

Lucas Zayonc, Delta, B.C. It has been said that “The good ol’ hockey game is the best game you can name,” and to most Canadians this is quite an accurate description.

No more afternoon playoff games

by The Hockey News - June 15, 2010 10:08 PM EDT

Dave Dickie, 100 Mile House, B.C. The NHL playoffs this year was some of the best NHL hockey I have seen, but being from western Canada and a NHL hockey fan for as long as I can remember, it really ticks me off when the NHL schedules afternoon playoff games.
