Panthers Not For Sale

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Russo’s Rants,

I know this doesn’t affect those in Minnesota, but Florida Panthers owner Alan Cohen asked me to put this on my blog regarding the Hockeybuzz.com report that he’s meeting today with a group looking to purchase the Panthers.
“I am in the front row at Saratoga today watching the races and I am not selling the Panthers now or ever.”

Geez Dwayne, what kind of spin will you put on this one?

Peca Still Waiting

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via TSN,

“I’m going to help somebody next year, wherever it’s going to be,’’ Peca said Wednesday during the NHL Players’ Association annual charity golf tournament.
One of those options remains the Toronto Maple Leafs, for whom he played 35 games last season before his season was cut short by a serious leg injury.
‘‘Right from the end of the season it’s been `We want you back, we’d like to re-sign you,’‘’ the 33-year-old centre said of his communication with the Leafs. ‘‘But they’ve had some cap issues that they’re trying to resolve. And that’s basically where it’s at.
‘‘I know (Leafs GM) John (Ferguson) had contacted (Peca’s agent) Don Meehan about a week and a half ago just reiterating the same thing.’‘

Dave Strader Says Hi

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Phoenix Coyotes,

Hello Coyotes’ Fans,
I want to first express how excited I am to be the new TV voice of the Phoenix Coyotes. If you’ve read any of the newspaper articles since I was hired then you know that I have a professional history and longtime friendship with Coyotes’ TV Color Analyst Darren Pang. Panger was actually part of the first national TV game that I called for ESPN way back in 1987. It was the night before Thanksgiving and I was calling the play-by-play of a game between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Los Angeles Kings.

Redden Still A Senator

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,

Bryan Murray had Wade Redden traded last month.
But the deal was swiped off the table by the veteran defenceman.
“I’m not shopping him around at all,” Murray said yesterday when asked about the status of Redden, the team’s top paid player at $6.5 million (all terms US) a season and unrestricted free-agent eligible next July.
“I had a conversation at the draft, there was a deal I could go with, but (Redden) decided he didn’t want to be traded.
“That’s what a no-trade (clause) is. At this moment, Wade will be in Ottawa.”

Is Katz Planning A Hostile Takeover

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,

Did Daryl Katz, in attempting to sweeten the deal, sour it?
Will people now resent what already felt like an uninvited hostile takeover attempt of a group of the all-time greatest guys in Edmonton history - the 37 entities who saved the Oilers?
Katz yesterday went public with a statement which was both teasing and tantalizing in terms of putting up major money toward the building of a new downtown arena, investing in a new arena for the University of Alberta and promising to spend to the salary cap to make the Oilers a winning team.
The timing of the statement is curious.
