St. Louis Blues goaltender Jaroslav Halak had a heated argument with Ken Hitchcock before Game 4 of the Blues first round playoff series against the Los Angeles Kings, according to St.Louis Post-Dispatch reporter Jeremy Rutherford.
Halak was late for a team meeting, which triggered a heated argument between Hitchcock and the goaltender. Rutherford reports Halak was not happy with his ice time during the season.
The 27-year-old Bratislava native returned from a groin injury at the end of the season. Rutherford details Halak's frustrations.
"Sources say that Halak’s frustration with Hitchcock was not focused as much on whether he should have been the team’s starting goalie against the Kings as much as it was the buildup of the way he was handled earlier in the season. He was especially unhappy about not receiving the assignment against Chicago in the regular-season finale."
Halak has one more year left on his four-year, $15 million contract with St.Louis.

According to CDC

Kassian - The next Bertuzzi (lulz)

Jensen - The next great elite sniper

Gaunce - The next Kesler

Schroeder - Will put up 65-75 points with us in a few years

Corrado - The next Bieksa

Sauve - Will become a steady bottom pairing D-man!

Rodin - Still has potential to be a top 6 sniper

Hoznik - Still has potential to be a great goaltender, even though this was a terrible pick in hindsight

Archibald - Third line powerforward

Tochkin - The next Burrows!

Lain - David Steckel potential

So going by CDC's awful assessment of our prospects, I'd say our core is pretty set

Glad he found something in Long Island

How grabner is doing now is irrelevant to the canucks. Its like saying rj umberger sure would fit great with canucks right now. Grabner failed here, AND THEN he failed in Florida of all places before he gave himself a reality check. Even if he had his drive, he would have never seen the ice time nor been used in the situations which would have allowed him to develop here.

Anybody watch the CaPS VS Ranges Game 6? rangers got 5 PP and Capitals 0?

honestly refs these playoffs have been horrible. I swear NHL wants big market or marquee teams to do well. Rangers have 26 PPs this series, Capitals 13 PPs.

It boggles my mind that a team can have no PPs during an NHL playoff game, you're telling me the rangers are playing a physical, yet disciplined game? Rangers aren't known to be the cleanest team in the league.

I am biased because NYR fan, but even I will admit the officiating has been in NYR favour pretty badly. Today the refs missed a few thing against the caps and than called something's that were stupid.

if I'm not mistaken the Rangers were the least penalized team in the regular season maybe that makes the officiating in their side a bit? I know it shouldn't but it could play into a decision

Lundqvist is always good but today he's was unbeatable
