Score, Six players who will never win a Stanley Cup

Interesting list by the Score. Noticed Phil Kessel and Alex Ovechkin are part of this list.

Minnesota Wild: Who's it going to be?

The free agent signing period starts at 11:00 A.M. Central. It would be interesting to see what it would take to sign Jarome Iginla or Thomas Vanek. UFA's Paul Stastny and Vanek sit atop of the list of available free agents.
:Michael Russo, Startribune - Thomas Vanek enjoyed his meeting with Wild coach Mike Yeo late Sunday, and the feeling was said to be mutual. But as of late Monday, it still was up in the air as to whether #VanekWatch would end Tuesday with the former Gophers star ending months of speculation by signing with his hometown NHL team.

The Wild made Vanek’s short list, but agent Steve Bartlett said there were other good options on it, too, as NHL free agency opens at 11 a.m. Tuesday. The other good options likely will offer Vanek more money and more years than the Wild, which might plan to tender the left winger a short-term deal.

The extra years, and thus security, could alter Vanek’s decision.

“Is it a deal-breaker if he loves everything about the team and they’re shorter term than another team? I don’t think it’s to that extent,” Bartlett said. “It’s just one more of those boxes that you check when you’re trying to make a decision.”

In a slim free-agent class that offers a multitude of forwards with a multitude of red flags, the Wild has shown the most interest in Vanek, the Stillwater resident, and veteran goal scorer Jarome Iginla, who turns 37 Tuesday. The Wild had more conversations Monday with Iginla’s reps in hopes of selling Iginla on its program and how it’s a Stanley Cup contender.

Wild Kicking the Tires on Jarome Iginla

Looks like the Wild are trying to add another top-six forward for their lineup. This is interesting news right here. I wonder what it would take to get Iggy in a Wild uniform? I would also applaud the move if it happened.
Michael Russo, Startribune – The draft is over, no player trades were made, so whether it’s Sunday or Monday, bet that Wild General Manager Chuck Fletcher and coach Mike Yeo will try to get together in Minnesota with pending free agents Matt Niskanen and Thomas Vanek.

While those have been the most well-publicized names surrounding Wild interest in advance of the market opening across the NHL Tuesday, the Wild has other lines in the water, too.

The Wild has been in contact with camp, according to multiple sources. It’s unclear if the interest is mutual, but it’s definitely clear that the Wild is interested in potentially signing the future Hall of Fame winger and, ironically, all-time leader in basically every offensive category against the Wild.

(Video) Bruins take a 3-1 series lead on Red Wings

I think at times it's better to be lucky than good. Boston Bruins forward Jarome Iginla gets his first goal of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Bruins head back to Boston with a 3-1 series lead. I thought that the Red Wings came out with a lot of speed, but the B's took over the game in the second period and Tuuka Rask played very well.

(Video) Game Four: final minute and a half of Bruins and Penguins and then the Handshake

Wow! What a mad finish to the end of a great game. This was a hard nosed series. Hard fought series. The Boston Bruins are going back to the Stanley Cup Finals for the second time in three years.

Jarome Iginla humor

I went to bed last night thinking that my favorite team had received Jarome Iginla in a trade with the Calgary Flames, I woke up this morning to find out that this was not the case. I guess somewhere, there is some humor in this.

Former Sioux forward Jonathan Toews on the CBA negotiations

Today former Fighting Sioux forward was one of 18 players that was at the CBA negotiations between the NHLPA and the NHL led by commissioner Gary Bettman and this is what he had to say on the matter. Based on what I have read today, it doesn't look good.

You can read the blog by Adam Jahns here.

Here is another great comment from Jonathan Toews that was in another article at CSN.COM.
Toews, who went to Toronto for today’s negotiations, told the media “we want the league to honor current contracts. That’s pretty much all we’re asking.” [CSN.COM]
Here is the list of the 18 NHL players that were in attendance today.

Sidney Crosby, Jonathan Toews, Jarome Iginla, Eric Staal, Shane Doan, Shawn Horcoff, Craig Adams, Brad Boyes, Chris Campoli, David Clarkson, Dan Cleary, Carlo Colaiacovo, Mathieu Darche, Robyn Regehr, Matt Stajan, Shawn Thornton, Kevin Westgarth and Daniel Winnik.

Nick Johnson vs Jarome Iginla

I was watching this game last night and Wild forward Nick Johnson is thrown out of the game for an alleged head butt. I have watched this video numerous times and I for the life of me don't see the head butt that Iginla is complaining about. I have to agree with BReynolds that there is no head butt.

Also, the ref that made the call Tim Kowal should probably apologize to Mikko Koivu for yelling at him at the players bench, what a jerk. Mikko is a captain and he is allowed to talk to the officials. The move that is semi funny is how Iggy complains about the head but then punches Johnson.
