    NHL says it isn’t bothered by Coyotes’ salary cap methods

    Arizona Coyotes GM John Chayka is deftly playing the system when it comes to the salary cap to the point that some might accuse him of exploiting loopholes. If the NHL bristles as such tactics, they’re at least not showing it in public. In taking on the absolutely dead money of Chris Pronger and Pavel Datsyuk along with the possibly dead money of Dave Bolland, the Coyotes are getting to the cap floor while saving money in the actual cash they’re dishing out. The Score’s Ian MacLaren succinctly explains the savings they’re enjoying thanks to these clever trades: That’s how the league is viewing Arizona taking on the salaries of Chris Pronger, Pavel Datsyuk and Dave Bolland.

Since being acquired by San Jose in 2011, Burns has hit double digit goals in all but one year (he scored nine in 30 games in 2012-13). “You know how we feel about Brent. Phenomenal

    45 Days to Go: Nick Nickson Builds His Legacy By Pinch-Hitting

    “The long wait is over! After 45 years, the Kings can wear their crown!” 26 years ago, the Los Angeles Kings separated their radio and television broadcasts, and since then, one man has owned the radio booth: Nick Nickson. In a city where television broadcasting legends dominate the sporting landscape, Nickson is the only one who truly stands up to his radio counterpart. Since 1990, the Lakers have had five radio play-by-play men, the Clippers have had six, and the Dodgers haven’t had a full-time guy thanks to the incredible longevity of Vin Scully. Since 1990, it’s been Nick, aside from the occasional fill-in. One of those fill-ins? Last season, when Bob Miller required heart surgery; Jon Rosen
