Blues' Elliott confident he's ready to be No. 1 goalie

Friday, 09.05.2014 / 11:18 AM / News

NHL.com

Brian Elliott is obviously happy to know he'll enter training camp as the St. Louis Blues' No. 1 goaltender. But at 29 years old and heading into his eighth NHL season, he knows there's no reason to change anything about his preparation or approach.

"I don't think it's that much different than the past three years," Elliott told the team website Thursday. "I've always trained to be the No. 1 guy. You're selling yourself short if you don't. There's a big opportunity for me right now and I'm looking forward to the challenge. I think we're going to be a really good team and I want to be a big part of that."

"It feels much stronger," Stamkos told the Lightning website. "Mentally, too, you're in a better state. It's amazing what time and being able to work on it, being able to strengthen it kind of at your own pace and at your own time and how your body reacts. It's amazing week after week how much better it feels and how much closer it's getting to where it was before. I'm excited about that."

Commissioner says NHL 'stronger every season'

Thursday, 09.04.2014 / 6:34 PM / News

NHL.com

NEW YORK -- Commissioner Gary Bettman discussed the financial state of the NHL among several topics Thursday at the Bloomberg Sports Business Summit.

Bettman, while being interviewed by Bloomberg's Tom Keene, praised the League's competitive balance as a key component of increased success in several areas.

"Over the last decade now, we've gotten stronger every season," Commissioner Bettman said. "As [Tom] pointed out, last year may have been the strongest ever. The point is, why? It starts with the game. It starts with the way the game is being played, the skill, the speed, the competitive balance that we have that is perhaps maybe the best we've ever seen and the best in all of sports. Every team is in it in the regular season, most of the regular season.

"The playoffs are wildly unpredictable. How many games did we see where it turned around when a team was down by three goals? We had a series where a team came back after being down 3-0 in the series. That's a testament to how the game is being played and how exciting and entertaining it is. You combine that with the things we're doing around the game to build the business of the game: Attendance has never been better, ratings have never been better, and business has never been better."

NHL.com

Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock is going into the final season of his contract and said he won't negotiate once the regular season starts in October.

"If we get something done in September, great," Babcock told Mlive.com on Wednesday. "But if we don't, and I've said this and no one believes me, I have a real good relationship with the general manager (Ken Holland) and I'm real confident in my own ability and confident in the ability he has to put together a team. We'll find a way to work something out over time.

"But I'm not all wound up about this one bit. I'm real comfortable. I'm not selling my house or anything like that. Life's good for me."

Goaltender Martin Brodeur said this week he'd be willing to play this season as the backup to Carey Price with the Montreal Canadiens.

"If the Canadiens made me an offer, it goes without saying that I would listen to what they have to offer me," Brodeur said, according to the QMI Agency.

Brodeur, an unrestricted free agent, said several times previously he was looking to be a No. 1 goalie but would consider a lesser role if it were with a contender.

Dupuis not cleared for Penguins camp yet: report

Thursday, 09.04.2014 / 4:02 PM / News

NHL.com

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis has not been cleared for contact as he recovers from knee surgery and it is unknown if he will be in time for the start of training camp Sept. 19, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Thursday.

"We don't hit anybody this early anyway, so I wouldn't be able to test it," Dupuis told the newspaper. "Yes, I'm battling in the corners, 1-on-1, and it feels great. It doesn't swell on me. … The way it feels is the way I would feel this time of year, usually. It's just not battle-tested yet."

Dupuis, 35, is skating with Penguins teammates at Consol Energy Center. He was injured Dec. 23 against the Ottawa Senators when he was involved in a collision with Sidney Crosby. Dupuis had surgery Feb. 12 to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
