Gainey began Canadiens decent

by The Hockey News - October 11, 2010 10:45 AM EDT

Matt Jacznik, Cambridge Ont. When I originally began writing this piece my intentions were to express my disapproval of the seemingly near-sighted trading of Montreal Canadiens' goaltender Jaroslav Halak to the St.

Looney toons

by The Hockey News - October 10, 2010 1:04 PM EDT

Louis-Pierre Smith Lacroix, Quebec City, Que. In the 1980s, Wayne Gretzky called the New Jersey Devils a "Mickey Mouse organization." In the 1990s, Walt Disney entered the NHL with its cartoon-esque Mighty Ducks.

Get Euro interest with Olympics, not NHL games

by The Hockey News - October 9, 2010 1:24 PM EDT

Jordan Smith, Vancouver I find it dumb to have the NHL kickoff in Europe. The league is not going to expand to Europe anytime soon, so why have regular season games there? Supposedly it promotes the game at an international level, but then why isn’t league fully behind the idea of the players to participating in the Olympics? To me, that just doesn't make any sense since.

Joe Thornton the right choice for captain

by The Hockey News - October 7, 2010 9:25 PM EDT

Josh Barr, Flin Flon, Man. Congrats to Joe Thornton for becoming the eighth full-time captain in Sharks history. It has undoubtedly been his team since he arrived.

Bobby Clarke no great

by The Hockey News - October 7, 2010 11:54 AM EDT

Ed Vanderwoude, Hamilton, Ont. I enjoyed your special issue, The Top 100 Players of All-Time by Position, but I find it troubling that Bobby Clarke continues to make these lists.

Wings and Hawks should honor Probert

by The Hockey News - October 2, 2010 11:05 AM EDT

Todd Ritchie, Windsor, Ont. I grew as a big Bob Probert fan and like many was deeply saddened by his sudden and untimely death. Bob put all his blood and sweat into a 16-year NHL career, nine with Detroit and seven in Chicago.

Canucks fans certainly top 10

by The Hockey News - September 29, 2010 7:07 PM EDT

Michael Bradburn, Whitby, Ont. I was appalled to read THN.com’s Top 10 on the craziest fans and see the Vancouver Canucks faithful was omitted.

Hands off the hand-pass rule

by The Hockey News - September 29, 2010 10:43 AM EDT

Jim Ramlow, Toledo, Ohio Fans who want the current "hand pass" rule rescinded apparently don't know the reason it originally passed.

Ron Wilson not helping

by The Hockey News - September 26, 2010 10:53 PM EDT

Doug Quigley, Newmarket, Ont. Ron Wilson needs to shut up and coach hockey! There is no benefit to the Leafs by him criticizing and calling out his players as individuals to the media, as he did with Nazem Kadri over the weekend.

Bergeron deserved to be top 20

by The Hockey News - September 26, 2010 10:19 AM EDT

Brett Giroux, Chazy, N.Y. I feel Patrice Bergeron deserved to be on your top 20 list of the top centers in the NHL. This is a man who is a leader, mentor, helps out in the community and is on the first PP and PK units.

Lockout and lose a fan

by The Hockey News - September 25, 2010 10:23 AM EDT

Nick Boukas, Denver, Colo. There are two things that are continually gnawing at me. First, leave the game alone. There is no other league that continually looks to make major changes every season other than the NHL.

Chin up, Carey

by The Hockey News - September 25, 2010 10:05 AM EDT

Tom Chlebek, New York I find it hard to believe Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens had his feelings hurt because fans were booing him after he gave up four goals on the first nine shots in the pre-season opener at the Bell Centre.
