Report- The Pittsburgh Penguins Will Try To Trade Phil Kessel

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Tim Benz of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,

The Penguins are trying to trade Phil Kessel.

That's according to Mark Madden of the team's flagship station, 105.9 FM. He made the statement on his radio show yesterday.

According to Madden, the Penguins are going to try to move Kessel to another team this offseason, and "Kessel is OK with that."

As Madden phrased it, "the key word is try." He couched the chances of a potential deal happening because of Kessel's $6.8 million price tag and his reputation of being a hard player to coach.

Madden cited "sources close to the Penguins and to Phil Kessel." His explanation for Kessel's endorsement of a potential trade stems from two points.

The first of which is Kessel's alleged displeasure over the fact that he hasn't been able to play on a line with Evgeni Malkin full-time, instead being used as the balancing point for head coach Mike Sullivan to spread his top talent over three scoring lines.

The second is "underlying dissatisfaction" between Kessel and Sullivan.

What David Quinn Brings To The New York Rangers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

They were talking about practice at Thursday’s introductory press conference for David Quinn. The 35th coach of the Rangers talked about practice, so did general manager Jeff Gorton, and so did lettermen Kevin Shattenkirk and Kevin Hayes, both of whom are familiar with Quinn’s methods.

In fact, they talked about practice so much at the Garden that Allen Iverson’s head must have hurt by the time the festivities had ended.

Attention to detail, work habits and sound defensive structure are the tenets by which the Rangers will live and breathe playing for Quinn. This will mark a dramatic and refreshing change from the previous regime, under which practices became fewer and farther between (and less constructive) and the papier-mâché structure eroded as Alain Vigneault’s tenure reached five years.

In one sense, this move from the veteran with 1,216 NHL games and 648 career victories to this NHL neophyte was a radical one in keeping with the organizational philosophy to go young.
