Could The Cap Hit $52M

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

Slap Shots has been told that the NHLPA is planning to exercise its right under the CBA to request that a full five-percent bump be built into next season’s cap. If 2006-07 league revenues come it at $2.36B - Gary Bettman on Monday said he thought the number would be close to $2.4B - a five-percent bump would bring next season’s upper limit to approximately $52M.
We’ve learned that the PA was urged to push the cap as high as possible by, among others, Major League Baseball PA executive director Don Fehr and former NBA union head Charles Grantham during a meeting in Toronto last Monday with members of the NHLPA’s current leadership group.

It Was A Love Fest

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from William Houston of the Globe and Mail,

They’re entertaining as solo acts, but no great shakes as a team.
At least, they weren’t on Saturday night when NBC’s Brett Hull joined Don Cherry on the CBC’s Coach’s Corner during the first intermission of the Anaheim Ducks-Ottawa Senators game.
There were no fireworks, no real disagreements, not even much discussion about the game.
The only real colour came from Cherry’s jacket which appeared to have been made from red, orange and white floral drapery material.

Zherdev’s Advisor Suggests Trade

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Columbus Dispatch,

An adviser to Blue Jackets right winger Nikolai Zherdev said “it maybe would be good for both sides” if Zherdev were traded before the start of the 2007-08 season.
But, Sasha Tyjnych said, Zherdev is spending this summer with the mind-set that he’ll remain with the Blue Jackets.

Coach Murray After Game 3

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Q. Curious about the Pronger hit on McAmmond and what if anything should need to happen?
COACH BRYAN MURRAY: It’s not what needs to happen. It was an elbow to the head. I saw what happened when a Detroit player got hit like that. He was out. I can’t for the life of me understand how it was missed by four officials. Dean was knocked out. I don’t want to say anything because I don’t want to complain, because I get accused of complaining.
So I think it was an obvious call.

Q. Do you think that Anaheim was trying to do again tonight what other teams had tried and failed to do, which is rough it up a little bit? And tonight you finally - you had to step it up and force the issue a little more than you had?
COACH BRYAN MURRAY: Well, that’s their style. I mean, they battle hard with the goaltender. They take the body real well. I know lots of these players. They’re big, physical people. That’s their game plan. And it’s not just tonight, it’s every night. I thought we handled it well.
We got some pucks to the net finally, and we found a way to win a hockey game.

Carlyle- “They Outworked Us”

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Q. Randy, your view on the Alfredsson goal?
COACH RANDY CARLYLE: Well, obviously the league felt it wasn’t kicked in, simple as that. Sometimes those things go for you. Tonight it went against us. Obviously, we felt that there was a kicking motion from our point of view but I haven’t really reviewed the replay from a bunch of different angles. But that’s the way it is. They make the call and you have to live with it.

Q. Can you talk about what you felt the Senators did that maybe caused you guys some more trouble -
COACH RANDY CARLYLE: They outworked us, simple as that.

Move Milbury Into The Booth

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mark Herrmann of Newsday,

Now is his time to cash in on what he does best: talk.
Versus, NBC and anyone else who televises the National Hockey League ought to sign him quicker than Dany Heatley can score a goal (Heatley being one of the stars Milbury passed on as GM).
Let Milbury become the ranter instead of the rantee. He can become the Charles Barkley or Johnny Miller of hockey.
Dare we say it? He can become America’s Don Cherry.
Cherry is the godfather of one of Milbury’s sons. He once said nobody ever built an NHL career more on hard work than Milbury did, which is one of the tamest things Cherry ever has said. The former Bruins coach and his former player share a gift of gab.

NHL Comment On Alfredsson Goal

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ken Campbell at the Hockey News,

But O’Halloran was overruled by NHL director of hockey operations Colin Campbell, who looked at the replays and ruled there was no distinct kicking motion.
“And that’s the whole key here,” said NHL vice-president Mike Murphy. “The key is Alfredsson directed the puck in, but there was no distinct kicking motion. The puck hits his skate and it goes toward the net, then there is movement of the foot.”
