Class acts

by The Hockey News - April 10, 2010 10:11 PM EDT

Terry James, Niagara Falls, Ont. Just another example of why hockey players are the best athletes in the world: The Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens, after their final regular season game, showed incredible class by congratulating referee Dan Marouelli for his years of service to the NHL.

An impressive body of work

by The Hockey News - April 8, 2010 6:33 PM EDT

Tom DiPerna, Denver, Colo. With all of the talk in the hockey world surrounding the final days of Keith Tkachuk, Mike Modano and Mellon Arena, lost in the shuffle of things is the sad truth this may be the last we see of Rod Brind'Amour.

Don't give up on Iggy

by The Hockey News - April 8, 2010 6:31 PM EDT

Henry Teng, Calgary Enough already with this what-have-you-done-for-me-lately mentality by Flames fans. Jarome Iginla is the heart of the Calgary Flames and he has been for a long time.

Heading in the right direction with new rule

by The Hockey News - April 8, 2010 6:26 PM EDT

Evan Gilbert, Whitby, Ont. The NHL has done it. They have successfully created a rule to make east-to-west blindside head shots illegal in the game of hockey, so kudos to them.

Congratulation Alfredsson on Game 1,000

by The Hockey News - April 5, 2010 2:12 PM EDT

Henrik deserves Hart

by The Hockey News - April 4, 2010 10:49 AM EDT

Nolan Tallmadge, Lyndonville, Vt. I find it shocking very few think Henrik Sedin doesn't deserve the Hart Trophy. No, he does not have nearly as many goals as Sid Crosby or Alex Ovechkin and, no, he hasn't taken a shot in the shootout, but he is the NHL points leader.

Playfair and Cooke tarnish the sport

by The Hockey News - April 3, 2010 10:47 AM EDT

Christiaan Honig, Collegeville, Pa. For years I have wondered why even some of the most important events in the hockey season receive, at best, a one-page article.

Ted not so terrible

by The Hockey News - March 31, 2010 1:40 PM EDT

Mike Demor, Canal Fulton, Ohio I wanted to say thank you to Red Wings legend Ted Lindsay for taking time out of his schedule to sign his book at ‘The Joe.

Crying blue and white

by The Hockey News - March 30, 2010 4:25 PM EDT

Jon Reed, Toronto As the regular season comes to an end, once again my beloved Leafs have missed the playoffs. I am only 16 and have only had to endure this constant failure for the last 16 years, but many other fans have had to watch their team not garner any real success game after game, and decade after decade, for more than 40 years.

NHL must look at improving TV product

by The Hockey News - March 30, 2010 4:22 PM EDT

Brad Campbell, Fayetteville, Ark. An interesting study would be that of the low quality of TV production seen throughout the league. The NFL has studied high def and the new screen format and optimized the quality of their product on TV.

Carey Price deserves better treatment

by The Hockey News - March 30, 2010 1:38 PM EDT

Rick Thalheimer, Prince Albert, Sask. In Montreal's recent 2-1 loss to Carolina, Carey Price played exceptional, earning third star honors.

Lopsided conferences should spark new rule

by The Hockey News - March 30, 2010 1:20 PM EDT

Eric Ritter, Deltona, Fla. Looking at this year's current standings, there's no question of which conference has been more dominant. After 265 games against the East, Western Conference teams have compiled a record of 152-85-28.
