via Bob Duff tweet,

#thrashers asking price for Bogosian - Hudler, Ericsson or Kindl and high draft pick - too big a price for #redwings to pay at this point.

WASH claims Sturm off waivers

See Pierre’s twitter for players placed on waivers today.

added 1:07pm, via Flyers press release,

“Nick is a right shot defenseman that will bring experience and depth to our team,” Holmgren said in making the announcement. 

“I couldn’t be happier,” said Boynton. “I was a little shocked and didn’t realize that I was put on waivers until late last night, but I couldn’t ask to be coming to a better team or organization.  I’ve been around the League for a while and I hope to bring that experience, try to work hard and play solid defense and chip in with whatever the team needs.”

added 1:26pm, via Columbus press release,

“Craig Rivet brings steady play, experience and leadership to our team, which will be very important as we head down the stretch this season,” said Howson.  “We think he will be a good addition to our group and are happy to have him as a member of the Columbus Blue Jackets.”

Blake Geoffrion Joins The Rest Of His Family

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Josh Cooper of The Tennessean,

“I haven’t stopped smiling all day,” Geoffrion said by phone. “This afternoon I tried to get a little nap in because we’ve been traveling a lot, but I couldn’t really sleep. I’m thrilled to death, and I can’t wait to play.”

If Geoffrion takes the ice, he would become the fourth member of his family to play in the league, joining great-grandfather Howie Morenz, grandfather Bernie Geoffrion — both Hockey Hall of Famers — and father Danny Geoffrion.


If you have some time, make sure to watch the Legends of Hockey video on Blake’s dad ‘Boom Boom’ Geoffrion below…

Report- Seabrook Close To Signing An Extension

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via TSN,

It looks like 25-year-old defenseman Brent Seabrook will be a member of the Chicago Blackhawks for the foreseeable future.

Sources told TSN early on Saturday that Seabrook is on the verge of finalizing a five-year contract with the club worth a shade under $30 million.

The deal is close to being completed and should be made official in the next few days.

GDT - Game #62: Red Wings at Sabres (7:00)

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Jeff OKWingnut

After two less than stellar performances at the JLA, in which DET were outscored 8-4, the Red Wings (37-18-6) are in BUF (29-25-6) tonight.  Intriguing rumblings from Zetterberg and Lidstrom after the DAL fiasco, suggest that DET get caught up in line matching when playing at home.  All I know is that DET’s recent home play has not been good at all.

So DET’s five game road trip should be good for the Wings, who are brilliant on the road; earning 42 of 60 available points (70%).  More good news, Mike Modano will play on the 3 line tonight after a 41 game absence.  Filppula is also expected to be on the 3 line along with Homer.

The Sabres currently sit 9th in the East,  3 points out of the 8th spot, but have two games in-hand on CAR.  Tonight marks the end of BUF’s 6 game home stand.  The NHL.com recap of their 4-2 win last night over OTT, suggests that BUF is playing a much more “physical game.”

BUF need points to earn a playoff position, DET needs a win to avoid being consumed by the peloton.  Should be a good one tonight.

Player Shopping Continues

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,

The biggest star likely left is Dallas Stars centre Brad Richards, who may or may not be in play depending on the status of his concussion, his contract talks with Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk and his willingness to waive his no-movement rights and possibly sign a long-term deal with another team. Also in the barrel are New Jersey Devils centre Jason Arnott, Florida Panthers defenceman Bryan McCabe, Senators defenceman Chris Phillips, Edmonton Oilers forwards Dustin Penner and Ales Hemsky and maybe even Colorado Avalanche centre Paul Stastny.

Arnott, an unrestricted free agent on July 1, said he will decide by Sunday if he is willing to waive his no-trade rights.

Other active sellers are expected to be Panthers GM Dale Tallon, Avalanche GM Greg Sherman and perhaps Devils boss Lou Lamoriello, since his team’s remarkable second-half run – including eight wins in a row heading into Friday’s action – is still not enough to bank on a playoff spot.

Prominent among the buyers will be Columbus Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson and Philadelphia Flyers counterpart Paul Holmgren, who is looking for a depth defenceman and perhaps a veteran goaltender.
