Subban criticism sickening

by The Hockey News - November 27, 2010 11:56 AM EST

Phil Rivoire, Arviat, Nunavut I would like to congratulate you on your Nov. 22 cover story on P.K. Subban for portraying a fair, unbiased account of a young man trying to make his way in the NHL by being a tough, fierce competitor.

Off-season training a must

by The Hockey News - November 26, 2010 11:54 AM EST

Brett Hanna, Salmon Arm, B.C. Pure talent or brute strength used to be the only way to the NHL, but things have changed. I am quite proud of the young Steven Stamkos because he realized his talent wasn't enough to allow him to succeed at a high level.

Old names? Do it right

by The Hockey News - November 26, 2010 11:50 AM EST

Mike Niehaus, Portsmouth, Va. Connecticut Whale, too fishy! Hartford Whalers, just right! When I first read that the American League’s Hartford Wolfpack changed its' name to the Connecticut Whale, and saw the new uniform and logo, I thought, why not just call them the Hartford Whalers? Until the NHL decides to bring back the Winnipeg Jets, the AHL should rename the Manitoba Moose and give them Winnipeg's name and rename it the Jets.

Trading Iginla would be silly

by The Hockey News - November 24, 2010 1:08 PM EST

Defensemen comes in pairs, duh

by The Hockey News - November 23, 2010 1:13 PM EST

Jason Wryghte, Trenton, Ontario The Top 100 Players of All-Time by Position misses the mark. By only having one defenseman, the top lineups for each team are always shorthanded.

Hockey Hall of Fame not just for NHLers

by The Hockey News - November 22, 2010 6:41 PM EST

Alexa McMillan, Edmonton The Hockey Hall of Fame is about recognizing people for their contributions and achievements in hockey. Angela James and Cammi Granato have made huge contibrutions to women's hockey and hockey in general.

Hall of Fame messed up not inducting Pat Burns

by The Hockey News - November 21, 2010 7:21 PM EST

Eric Ritter, Deltona, Fla. The passing of Pat Burns was a sad moment for the NHL and its fans. Sad not only because a great coach and hockey personality had been taken from us, but sad because no one with authority saw it fit to take any initiative to get him into the Hockey Hall of Fame before his passing.

Four changes to help hockey

by The Hockey News - November 21, 2010 5:06 PM EST

Terry Fraser, Sellersburg, Ind. The NHL should be commended for being the most proactive of the major sports in changing their product to add entertainment value and competitiveness.

Suspensions should be eye for an eye

by The Hockey News - November 20, 2010 5:13 PM EST

Sean McDonald, Winnipeg, Man. I am only 12 years old and have already suffered three concussions through hockey and my worry is how players get away with cheap shots in the NHL.
