Five Questions with Stan Bowman

Blackhawks GM discusses Trade Deadline, improved depth, play of rookies

by Dan Rosen @drosennhl / NHL.com Senior Writer

NHL.com's Q&A feature called "Five Questions With …" runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Chicago Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman:

Typically at this time of the season, Chicago Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman is scouring the market for cost-effective rentals, which could help the Blackhawks push for another Stanley Cup championship. It's worked before, so it wouldn't be surprising if he were at it again.

However, he's not doing that. Bowman is instead content, or, dare we say happy with what he has seen from the Blackhawks of late. For good reason, too.

Hockey Is For Everyone

Theresa Feaster helps blaze trail for women in hockey

Daughter of Lightning executive worked to achieve position with Providence College men's team

by Dan Rosen @drosennhl / NHL.com Senior Writer

Former NHL general manager Jay Feaster always had an interested young assistant by his side no matter where he was working.

Theresa Feaster, the oldest of Jay and his wife Anne's five children, would fax official documents prepared by her father to the NHL and NHLPA. She'd talk hockey with John Tortorella and Bob Hartley and sit with her dad to analyze games and players. She would watch late-night games on television with him after they got home from the rink. She would become fascinated about advanced statistics, learning how they work and why they're relevant in evaluating players.

Michael Grabner of Rangers enjoying fast times

Speed of New York forward helping him elude opponents, score goals

by Dan Rosen @drosennhl / NHL.com Senior Writer

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- It might seem absurd, considering he skates like an express train at rush hour, but New York Rangers forward Michael Grabner insists he hasn't always been the fastest player on his team.

He just has to go back 17 years to remember the last time he wasn't. That was also when he began to develop the speed he uses to burn forwards and defensemen in the NHL.

by Dan Rosen @drosennhl / NHL.com Senior Writer

Arizona Coyotes captain Shane Doan has not asked general manager John Chayka to trade him before the 2017 NHL Trade Deadline on March 1 at 3 p.m. ET, Chayka said Friday.

However, Chayka said Doan still has time to determine if he wants to play for a Stanley Cup contender, and if that's the case, Chayka said he would explore the potential of trading the 40-year-old right wing who is in his 21st NHL season, all with the Coyotes/Winnipeg Jets franchise.

Islanders face huge challenge with schedule

One point out of second wild card, New York will play 18 of final 26 games on road

by Dan Rosen @drosennhl / NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- The New York Islanders could ignore the elephant in the room Thursday because the New York Rangers were at Barclays Center and the rivalry took center stage in what was arguably their biggest game of the season to date.

They delivered in the moment with what coach Doug Weight agreed was their biggest win of the season, a 4-2 result that put them one point behind the Toronto Maple Leafs for the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference.

The Islanders can't ignore the elephant anymore. It's their schedule for the next three-plus weeks. It's intimidating.
