NHL roundup: League announces rule changes

The NHL announced Thursday a series of rules changes for the 2014-15 season, following approval earlier in the summer by the League's Board of Governors and the National Hockey League Players' Association. Clipping, charging, elbowing, interference, kneeing, head-butting and butt-ending move from the general category into the same category as boarding and checking from behind.

Jack Skille: I'm a stronger player now

Jack Skille is one of a group of new Islanders who probably thought, when they signed towards the end of a busy July 1, they had a better than decent shot to crack an opening-night roster in need of some overhauling. Of course, that changed by the end of business on July 2. Skille, Cory Conacher, Harry Zolnierczyk and T.J. Brennan all signed on the first day of free agency -- Conacher and Brennan both signed one-way deals for $600,000; Skille and Zolnierczyk signed two-way deals that would pay each of them $300,000 if they're sent to the minors and $750,000 and $650,000 at the NHL level.

Comparing 2013-14 season of Nelson to Crosby, as far as Possession at Even-strength

First, I just want to clarify: - I don't think Brock Nelson is anywhere near the player that Sidney Crosby is. - Crosby is incredibly good on the PP, whereas Nelson's PP value is questionable at this time.

Upcoming NHL 15 patch puts Martin Brodeur on every NHL team, extending his career forever

Martin Brodeur has said he would like to play for a contender, preferably in the Western Conference and would settle for a back-up position if not given a chance to start. EA Sports is set to release a patch for NHL 15 that will remove all of the league's goalies and replace them with Brodeur, extending the already Hall of Fame goalie's career indefinitely in the virtual world.

See Ya', Spinorama: NHL rule changes include faceoffs, penalty shot/shootout, trapezoid adjustments

NHL players no longer have an eternity to complete their penalty shot and shootout attempts with a slow-motion pirouette. That -- technically it's the banning of the "spinorama" in shootout/penalty shot attempts -- is one of the more noticeable among many rule changes announced by the league today: The 'Spin-O-Rama' move, as described in Section 24.2 of the 2013-14 NHL Rule Book, will no longer be permitted either in Penalty Shot situations or in the Shootout.
