Toronto Maple Leafs

In today's NHL rumor rundown, we look at the decreasing likelihood of the New Jersey Devils getting Taylor Hall re-signed, the Toronto Maple Leafs are constantly talking with Jason Spezza but does Mitch Marner's injury change the conversation? The Boston Bruins have their eyes on the marketplace and the hockey landscape seems to have their eyes on Don Cherry after comments he made Saturday night. Devils' Chances of Signing Hall Dropping Elliotte Friedman said during Saturday's Headlines that he considers it unlikely the Devils find a way to extend Taylor Hall this season. At best, he re-signs but during the offseason and that's a pretty big risk for the Devils to take considering that opens the door to the franchise losing him for nothing. Taylor Hall, New Jersey Devils (Jess Starr/The Hockey Writers) Friedman noted that Hall's people and the Devils met in Calgary recently but things don't seem closer to a resolution. Speculation is that Hall’s agent Darren Ferris...

Bruins Prospects

Sustained success is everything in professional sports. Teams often have to find a healthy balance between winning in the present and keeping a steady supply of future assets. While it's possible to do both, it's difficult to achieve Stanley Cup contender status without trading away good prospects and draft picks and it's even harder to retain all of those prospects when their contracts expire. For this reason, teams often have to figure out which prospects have a future in their core in the future and which likely won't make the cut, due to internal competition, internal evaluations and the like. For this reason, evaluating talent is so important. It's also why ranking talent isn't something that shouldn't be done in a typical list structure. Instead, it should be structured more like a tier-list. Sticking with the trend from last season, the prospects for the Boston Bruins will be ranked in a prospect-pyramid system as opposed to a typical list. Related: Bruins...

Bruins Goaltending

What makes for a great NHL backup? Judging by this list of the best ones in the game today, it could really be either youth or experience. There’s really no rhyme or reason to the job, although it’s safe to say that if you’ve got a Vezina Trophy win notched on your belt, like the No. 1-ranked goalie on the list, you should be okay. Taking into account stats, careers up to now and overall potential, here are the top five backups in the NHL: 5. Thatcher Demko (Vancouver Canucks) Vancouver Canucks goalie Thatcher Demko may not be on this list very long. It isn’t because the signs point to him stumbling, though. Just the opposite. Vancouver Canucks goalie Thatcher Demko - (THE CANADIAN PRESS/Ben Nelms) Demko’s been very good, with an overall .918 save percentage spanning three seasons of work in relief for the Canucks. However, the soon-to-be 24-year-old has taken his game to a new level this season with a 4-1 record, 1.78 goals-against average and .938 save...
