|Sale of Islanders approved by NHL Board of Governors
Jonathan Ledecky and Scott Malkin are one step closer to a controlling interest in the New York Islanders.
|2014-15 Philadelphia Flyers Preview
Can Craig Berube lay the foundation for a success by getting his players to buy in right from training camp, and shake off the stigma of placing a former enforcer in a position of power as an NHL head coach?
|2014-15 Winnipeg Jets Preview
Realignment pushed the Jets from the NHL's Eastern Conference to the West in 2013-14 and the change did not suit the club with Winnipeg finishing last out of seven teams in the Central.
|2014-15 Vancouver Canucks Preview
Also gone from Vancouver is general manager Mike Gillis, the man who made the ill-fated decision to fire head coach Alain Vigneault after the 2013 campaign and replace him with Tortorella. All Vigneault did in 2013-14 was take over the reins for Torts with the New York Rangers and lead the Blueshirts to the Stanley Cup Finals.
|2014-15 Toronto Maple Leafs Preview
Toronto's big move came shortly after last season when it named Brendan Shanahan as the team's president and alternate governor. The Hall of Fame winger left behind a job as the NHL's director of player safety to try and help his hometown team get back on the right track.
|2014-15 Tampa Bay Lightning Preview
Even though the postseason run ended shortly after it began with a four-game sweep at the hands of the Montreal Canadiens, there were plenty of positives to draw at the end of 2013-14.
|2014-15 St. Louis Blues Preview
Losing to Chicago is understandable considering the Blackhawks entered the 2014 playoffs as defending Stanley Cup champions, but that's probably of little consolation to Blues fans. After all, St. Louis has only won one playoff series since Ken Hitchcock took over as coach early in the 2011-12 season despite the team's regular-season success during his tenure behind the bench.
|2014-15 Ottawa Senators Preview
For 11 straight seasons from the 1996-97 campaign through 2007-08 the Senators qualified for the playoffs, with the franchise's high point coming in a trip to the 2007 Stanley Cup Finals. After missing the postseason in the spring of 2009, Ottawa qualified three times over the next four seasons culminating with the aforementioned 2013 appearance.
|2014-15 Calgary Flames Preview
The Flames are coming off a not-so-surprising 77-point season, the lowest for the club since it notched just 75 in 2002-03. And though Calgary would reach the Stanley Cup Finals the following spring a decade ago, the turnaround isn't expected to be as swift this time around.
|2014-15 New York Rangers Preview
Although New York lost several pieces from its Eastern Conference championship team in the offseason, the club still enters 2014-15 as one of the favorites to win the East.
