“I try to work my whole career to become a guy that has a reputation, as a person and what kind of player I am. I felt that I had gotten there, and when something like this happens, no matter what it is — whether it’s just business, whether it’s personal, we don’t really know — once the label ‘buyout’ is on you, then the questions start coming,” Parrish said.

“I worked my butt off for this, and now I have to put up with this crap. It’s irritating, but that’s the business.”

-Mark Parrish who is looking for a team to play with.  More on Parrish from John Shipley of the Pioneer Press.

Who Could Move

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Spector at Fox Sports,

With NHL training camps opening soon and the start of the 2008-09 season less than a month away, here’s a look at the players from each team whose names could soon appear in this season’s trade rumor mill….

Dallas Stars: Joel Lundqvist. Only 26 but eligible for UFA status in 2009, it’s possible he could be moved by the trade deadline if the Stars are unable to re-sign him.

St. Louis Blues: Paul Kariya. He has two years left on his contract and a no-movement clause but also struggled last season on a still-rebuilding Blues team. One shouldn’t rule out the possibility he might want to move on later this season if the Blues are out of the playoff chase by February.

Ticket Shock

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Terry Frei at ESPN,

This year, when NHL teams informed season-ticket holders about the terms of their potential renewals for the 2008-09 season, the letters often broke news of price increases—but with so much spin control between the lines, fans could get dizzy as they read.

Granted, ticket-price increases are right up there on the shock meter with another young movie star entering rehab.

But wasn’t it supposed to be different under the salary-cap system that commissioner Gary Bettman and league owners shut down the league for a year to get? Citing the outrageous ticket prices, didn’t the league at least imply that it also was fighting for the fans, too, as it took on the NHLPA?

Old Names, New Places

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Loose Change of the Hockey News,

Kudos to the New York Islanders who now have a Doug Weight, a lightweight (Mike Comrie) and some dead weight (Mike Sillinger).

Exceptional work by the Vancouver Canucks in signing Jason Krog who is, by far, my favourite Muppet.

Radim Vrbata, Gary Roberts, Brandon Bochenski and Mark Recchi? Who says the people in Tampa don’t recycle?

Grimson Looking For Work In Nashville

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John Glennon of the Tennessean,

One of the Predators’ most pugnacious former players is looking forward to returning to the team in a far more peaceful role this season.

Stu Grimson, whose fighting prowess earned him “The Grim Reaper’’ nickname, has recently returned to Nashville, where he will be continuing his law career. He’s also discussing a part-time role with the Predators, one that would have the personable Grimson involved with the community.

Respectful Debate

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,

...I’d like to focus on the politics of hockey itself – and specifically, the oft-repeated criticisms of people who enjoy debating the pros and cons of all aspects of the game.

Said criticisms usually come in the form of the following argument: “The game is great as it is. We’ve already made enough changes to it, so why can’t people just enjoy it and leave it be?”

On some levels, I understand and agree with that sentiment. But I also believe there’s an inherent, significant danger to the notion of being satisfied with the status quo.
