    With Chiarelli stating he wants the Oilers to play bigger and harder, there's a guy I've been wanting them to recruit for a while now, and since you're following him on Twitter, I figured you could suggest it to PC: SIGN OSKAR OSALA!!

    Why has the NHL link in the top menu been tucked away next to the likes of the WNBA, Cricket and other afterthoughts? Is B/R actually trying to move away from hockey or are the visitors to the site that shallow and juvenile to actually have more interest in a "sport" like WWE?

    Hey Jonathan...not sure how much time you put into this, but clearly not enough. If you're going to write a story that involves all teams, do your homework, and get to know the situation(s)...may help getting more people reading your articles?!

    Why do you continue to poke at Jonathan Quick? Your article calling him "not elite" is a piece of crap. I have watched every Kings game since he has been on the team and for the years before with sub-par goaltending from the Kings for so, so long. Have you actually watched them? This article is so ridiculous I will be unsubscribing from the Bleacher Report and looking for better quality articles about the NHL, The Kings, and hockey in general.

    I found your article on Subban's contract very telling. It'll definitely be interesting to see how it pans out if the salary cap stays stagnant.

    Mike: Steve Mason has never played for Florida.

    1. Steve Mason recieved the Calder trophy his rookie year in Florida, not Columbus.
    2. Someone else wrote an almost identical article in October which focused on the lack of precidence of goaltenders getting better over time.
    3. Ryan Miller, consider an elite goaltender, won but a few playoff games in his career in Buffalo. Would you say that because of his history he is the weak link in St. Louis, a team that is even better since his arrival? You have to consider the team he, just like Mason, played for during those years.
    To think that Columbus' failures in the postseason can be blamed solely on Mason is ridiculous.
    Also, it's an easy out to predict that Mason is/will be the weak link. Everyone knows that teams win with goaltending (with the exception of the 2010 Stanley Cup finals), and since the Flyers aren't exactly the Cup favorite, chances are, they are going to lose.......objectively speaking. So, don't say "I told you so" when the Flyers are eventually knocked out of the playoffs, as if their only weakness right now is goaltending.......objectively speaking.

    You're article on Steve Mason could not be more off and it makes me lose respect for this website. How could you ever watch one Flyers game and not see the problem is in the defense
