Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TSN,

The San Jose Sharks have bolstered their scouting departments with a pair of faces that should be very familiar to hockey fans.

On Saturday the Sharks added former Maple Leafs’ general manager John Ferguson Jr. and former Chicago Blackhawks coach Dirk Graham to their staff as professional scouts.

The New NHL Director Of Media Relations

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John Dellapina of the Blueshirts Blog at the NY Daily News,

The Rangers will win the Cup this season.

I know this because I won’t be there. At least, not to chronicle it.

I’m leaving the Daily News after 15 ½ years. The last 14 of them have been spent as the Rangers beat writer….

As Frank Brown handed the beat to me in 1994, I now pass the torch to Michael Obernauer. He undoubtedly will bring a fresh approach and renewed vigor that occasionally is needed and you fans deserve.

I hope to bring the same to my new job, following Frank’s lead once again as I join the NHL as Director of Media Relations.

Stastny Hurts Shoulder

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs,

Paul Stastny came off the ice early today, with his right shoulder sagging and clearly in pain. The Avs’ lone all star from last year had a collision during a scrimmage (not sure who he collided with yet or the exact circumstances), but Stastny immediately headed for the dressing room, clearly favoring his shoulder….

The Avs are calling Stastny’s injury just a “contusion”, and don’t believe it’s anything serious. But as we all know, sometimes things have a way of not turning out the way the Avs first say it is, when it comes to injuries.

Bouwmeester Talk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Sun-Sentinal,

Bouwmeester said he’s frustrated with not making the playoffs in his five NHL seasons with the Panthers and wasn’t going to decide this summer whether to re-sign or leave as an unrestricted free agent after all the latest edition of offseason changes.

“If I wasn’t [unsure], I would have signed something,” Bouwmeester said, adding that he’s “not closing doors” on the possibility of signing long term.

He said the team’s lack of success “absolutely” is why he’s hesitant to commit long term.

Preseason is Here, Finally

Blog: Goal Line Report By Patrick Hoffman

Well folks, on a nice 65 degree day here in New York, NHL preseason is finally upon us. I’ve been waiting for this day ever since the New York Rangers were eliminated by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

I know that when looking at the big picture in the National Hockey League, the preseason doesn’t mean that much. However, it actually means something for the Blueshirts as they will be playing two pre-season games overseas against SC Bern and Mettalurg Magnitogorsk.

Tonight, the Rangers open up their eight game preseason schedule against the Ottawa Senators. Obviously, not all of the team’s top players will be playing but according to Sam Weinman of The Journal News, here are the guys who are expected to play tonight in Ottawa:

Selanne Thinking Olympics - May Sign for Two Years

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Dan Wood of the OC Register,

A year after being nearly convinced that his hockey career was over, right wing Teemu Selanne is now thinking about possibly playing beyond this season.

“The Olympic year next year (2010 in Vancouver) is something that’s in my mind,” Selanne said. “I’ve played four times in the Olympics, and it’s an unbelievable experience. I know it’s going to be the last time when NHL players are going to be participating in the Olympics, so obviously it’s something quite special.”

Carney On Tryout With Chicago

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Len Ziehm of the Chicago Sun-Times,

Keith Carney became the seventh player to accept a free-agent tryout Friday while the Blackhawks were taking their physicals at the United Center—a prelude to today’s first official on-ice workout of training camp.

Carney is the most interesting of the bunch invited by general manager Dale Tallon. He was a solid defenseman for the Hawks from 1993-98, getting 67 points and 275 penalty minutes in 271 games. He was a plus-26 in 1996-97 and a plus-31 the season before that.

Wild Will Hold On To Gaborik

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Spector’s Hockey,

MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE/PIONEER PRESS: both reported on the current status of Marian Gaborik’s contract talks with the Minnesota Wild, noting they’re still ongoing but Wild GM Doug Risebrough has no set timetable on these talks.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Don’t expect the Wild to start shopping Gaborik if he’s not re-signed by the start of the season.

A Flyers Primer

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer,

Here is a primer for the Flyers’ preseason camp, which starts today at the Skate Zone in Voorhees.

B is for goalie Marty Biron. Which Biron will we see? The one who had an up-and-down regular season, or the one who was scorching hot in two of last season’s three playoff series?

N is for no-star lineup. Despite reaching the NHL’s final four last season, the Flyers aren’t getting much national respect. The Hockey News picks them to finish fourth in the East, and it lists just two Flyers, Briere (No. 42) and Richards (No. 49), among the league’s top 50 players.
