Former Senators coach MacLean has no regrets

Tuesday, 12.09.2014 / 5:20 PM / News

Chris Stevenson - NHL.com Correspondent

OTTAWA – Former Ottawa Senators coach Paul MacLean said Tuesday he hasn't second-guessed himself about any of his decisions behind the bench.

MacLean, who was 114-90-35 in four seasons with the Senators, was fired Monday and replaced by Dave Cameron, who was an assistant on MacLean's staff.

"I have no regrets over the way I did anything. I have no regrets. I can't change anything. It's all done," MacLean said. "All I can change is maybe what I would do going forward. But I'm not changing nothing that I did behind me and I don't regret anything I did, the way I did it, how I did it. I did it the best way I thought it would be to get the team to play in June. That's all it was about."

Cameron took scenic route to Senators coaching job

Tuesday, 12.09.2014 / 3:32 PM / NHL Insider

Chris Stevenson - NHL.com Correspondent

OTTAWA -- Dave Cameron apparently doesn't do anything too quickly.

The new coach of the Ottawa Senators jokingly said he holds the record for taking the longest to get an undergraduate degree at University of Prince Edward Island, at 10 years.

"I enrolled in '76, graduated with the class of '86," said the 56-year-old, who became the Senators' 10th coach when Paul MacLean was fired Monday.

Cameron was pursuing his career as a hockey player during that 10-year span, which included three NHL seasons with the Colorado Rockies and the New Jersey Devils.

It's taken him a long time on a long road, but he has his first job as an NHL coach.

Bettman talks World Cup, future of outdoor games

Tuesday, 12.09.2014 / 3:02 PM / News

Shawn Roarke - Director, Editorial

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- A potential World Cup of Hockey and the status of the next wave of outdoor games were key topics of discussion when the NHL wrapped up its annual December Board of Governors meeting here.

On the final day of the two-day meetings, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said the reincarnation of the World Cup of Hockey remains a work in progress, but significant headway has been made toward being able to announce details of the tournament, which is rumored to be scheduled to be held before the start of the 2016-17 season.

"We're focusing, together with the [National Hockey League] Players' Association, on a point in time where we will have an announcement where we can get past the rumor stage and actually get specific with you as to what it will look like," Bettman said Tuesday. "We are not at that point yet, but the Governors were given an update as to where we are."

Tuesday, 12.09.2014 / 2:48 PM / News

NHL.com

Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry will miss 3-4 weeks with a knee sprain, the team announced Tuesday.

Perry was injured in the first period Friday against the Minnesota Wild when he was knocked into the boards along the right wall on a hip check by Minnesota defenseman Keith Ballard. Favoring his left leg, he needed assistance to leave the ice and immediately left the bench.

"The day after it was pretty stiff, but it's feeling better every day," Perry said in comments tweeted by the Ducks. "We're thankful it was only a sprain and not a tear."

Perry's 14 goals are sixth in the NHL. He has 22 points in 23 games.

Fantasy top 100 forwards: Five disappointing groups

Tuesday, 12.09.2014 / 12:05 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Pete Jensen - NHL.com Fantasy Insider

Every Tuesday during the season, NHL.com fantasy hockey insider Pete Jensen will provide you with in-depth forward analysis. From updated weekly top 100 rankings to trending players and more, Jensen will be your go-to guy for fantasy forward advice all season long.

Fantasy performance is based on individual statistics, but team success or failure can also make or break a player's value.

Just look at how the early-season success stories of the Nashville Predators, Calgary Flames, New York Islanders and Vancouver Canucks have infiltrated fantasy rosters. From reliable goaltending (e.g. Pekka Rinne, Jaroslav Halak, Ryan Miller) to offensive defensemen (e.g. Mark Giordano) to standout rookies (e.g. Filip Forsberg, Johnny Gaudreau) to steals up front (e.g. Radim Vrbata, Brock Nelson), these developments have led to a positive fantasy ripple effect.

But remember, it's a two-way street. The unpredictability of hockey can turn a seemingly complete roster on paper into shambles over the course of a season.

Wild finding ways to survive loss of key defensemen

Tuesday, 12.09.2014 / 11:58 AM / NHL Insider

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- NHL players are conditioned to play through adversity. Injuries or illness are expected to be brushed aside as best as possible.

The Minnesota Wild have a strong hockey team, maybe one of the best in the NHL this season. They've also been dealing with a lot of key players missing from the lineup at various points because of adversity. What makes their situation a little out of the ordinary is the nature of why players are not available.

Five members of the Wild defense corps have contracted the mumps. No. 1 defenseman Ryan Suter is the most recent of the group, missing the past two games.

"It is bizarre," Wild captain Zach Parise said last week. "It is 2014, and who knew the mumps were still around, right? It's weird, and hopefully we don't see it around anymore."

Quote of the Day

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.

— Predators defenseman Seth Jones after Nashville was eliminated by Chicago in Game 6 on Saturday
