Super 16: No panic in Blackhawks despite slow start

Friday, 11.21.2014 / 3:00 AM / Super 16: NHL Power Rankings

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

There are not many franchises in the NHL where a 10-7-1 start to the season would elicit varying degrees of panic amongst the fan base, but the Chicago Blackhawks live in that space in 2014.

The Blackhawks have been one of the best teams in the NHL for seven seasons now, winning the Stanley Cup twice and reaching the Western Conference Final twice in the past six campaigns. There is an expectation to be playing in June 2015, or this season will be considered a failure.

So 21 points in 18 games, which as of Thursday morning was only good enough for ninth place in the West, has set off warning alarms in some homes in the greater Chicagoland area. One person who is not concerned? That would be Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman.

Canadiens silence some whispers with loud statement

Friday, 11.21.2014 / 12:55 AM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

MONTREAL -- Max Pacioretty said he didn't hear the chatter, but he knew it was out there.

He knew because his Montreal Canadiens were feeling it.

The Canadiens entered this week atop the NHL standings with a rough stretch of four games staring them directly in the face: The Pittsburgh Penguins and St. Louis Blues at home, the Boston Bruins and New York Rangers in a back-to-back on the road.

It was as stiff a test as they had faced and an opportunity to silence critics saying their hot start was not sustainable, that they didn't belong among the elite teams of the NHL.

In the first leg of that test, the Canadiens did not silence their critics. They empowered them.

Canadiens trade Bourque to Ducks for Allen

Thursday, 11.20.2014 / 7:55 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

MONTREAL -- For the second time in nine days, Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin freed up some room under the NHL salary cap for next season by acquiring a veteran defenseman.

Bergevin traded forward Rene Bourque, who cleared waivers and was demoted to the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League on Nov. 10, to the Anaheim Ducks for defenseman Bryan Allen on Thursday.

The move follows the Nov. 11 trade of forward Travis Moen to the Dallas Stars for defenseman Sergei Gonchar, shedding two contracts with a total salary-cap charge of $5.18 million off the

Canadiens payroll for next season in exchange for two expiring contracts.

"The players who get hurt the most often are defensemen," Bergevin said. "Look at other teams. Boston just went through a tough stretch with their defensemen. We’ve been lucky until now. Having extra defensemen is a luxury, but if you can afford it you have to look at it."

Lindros, LeClair inducted into Flyers Hall of Fame

Thursday, 11.20.2014 / 7:43 PM / News

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

PHILADELPHIA -- With the way Eric Lindros' time with the Philadelphia Flyers ended, many wondered whether he would ever go into the Flyers Hall of Fame.

Lindros, acquired by the Flyers in one of the biggest trades in NHL history, saw his time in Philadelphia end in acrimony and injury. He sat out a season while recovering from a concussion, and then demanded to be traded.

But that 2001 trade to the New York Rangers was a long time ago, and as Lindros said during a press conference Thursday, the passing of time heals all wounds.

That's why Lindros was all smiles Thursday as he and longtime linemate John LeClair were inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.

— Panthers forward Jaromir Jagr on scoring the 717th goal of his career to tie Phil Esposito for fifth on the NHL's all-time goals list after a 4-3 win vs. the Lightning on Sunday
