Canucks reportedly won’t use draft picks for playoff push

The Vancouver Canucks are basically the kings of dealing assets for vets who are supposed to help a playoff push, when in reality, the team is far from being competitive. We saw this flawed team-building strategy when GM Jim Benning dealt former first-round pick Jared McCann and multiple draft picks for the steady but unspectacular Erik Gudbranson. The Canucks failed to realize...

The unbreakable Jaromir Jagr now wants to play until he’s 55

Jaromir Jagr is just like the Energizer Bunny, his career keeps going and going and going. The 44-year-old doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon, as Jagr admitted he wants to play until he’s 55. Back in December, Jagr said he would work everyday to play until he’s 50. Now he has raised the bar. “I go to 55,” Jagr told NorthJersey.com Monday as the Panthers beat the...

WATCH: Jagr passes Messier on assists list

It didn’t take long for Jaromir Jagr to pass Mark Messier for second all time in points in the NHL, as his third period assist against the Bruins gave him 1,888 career points. But let’s just say it wasn’t the prettiest pass in the world. If Jagr keeps getting assists like that, it’s going to be very tough for him to play until he’s 50. But I still hope he tries. From...

Blackhawks fans engage in makeout session behind Joel Quenneville (vid)

A couple of Chicago Blackhawks fans seated behind their favorite NHL team’s bench couldn’t keep their eyes focused on the on-ice action and instead engaged in a pretty hot-and-heavy makeout session. And Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville, separated by a mere foot or two along with some plexiglass, was none the wiser. The very-public-display-of-very-intense-affection occurred...

Making sense of Florida Panthers firing Gerard Gallant, which NHL coach could be next

The Florida Panthers stunned the hockey world on Sunday amid reports of head coach Gerard Gallant being fired. Coming off a surprise 47-win, 103-point season and a Jack Adams nomination in 2015-16, Gallant’s job appeared safe. But despite the relative absurdity of firing a coach coming off a great season (and currently one game over .500 this season), there is a method behind...
