Florida’s Dvorak Out With Broken Hand

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from On Frozen Pond,

According to JM, Radek Dvorak has two broken bones in his hand, will be out four to six weeks. I spoke to Radek after Saturday’s game, he was optimistic he was going to be OK. Apparently that’s not the case.

No update on Jozef Stumpel and his troublesome right shoulder. JM said Saturday there was “slight separation” and Jozef is due to see a doctor today or tomorrow. He is not making the trip north, obviously.

Sens Need Emery

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Lyle Richardson at the Hockey News,

But with Gerber now mired in a mid-season funk, the Senators have no one else with big-game experience to turn to except Emery.

Forget about shopping him for a replacement, as the salary cap makes most GMs less willing to gamble on a problematic goalie with two years and almost $7 million remaining on his current contract.

Besides, there’s really no one available from other teams who’d be a suitable replacement.

Addressing Hits From Behind

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Dan Pollard of TSN,

I’ve changed my tune. I think it’s time to set a standard suspension for hits from behind in the NHL. It can’t hurt.

In the latest incident New York Ranger forward Ryan Hollweg, the man who took a Chris Simon stick to the face a year ago, ran Montreal Canadien Sergei Kostitsyn.

There’s no irony that Hollweg was involved in the two incidents.

Bolts May Be Forced To Move Boyle

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Tampa Tribune,

Lightning GM Jay Feaster has stated his intention to open contract talks with Boyle’s agent. But the odds of a deal being worked out in the next three weeks are remote, at best, even if a purchase agreement to sell the team to Oren Koules is announced this week as expected.

Defensemen the caliber of Boyle, who can skate and move the puck, are commodities in the NHL these days and teams don’t like to part with them. But that also means the player holds the hammer in negotiations and there’s a good chance Boyle’s side could start talks seeking a salary starting in the neighborhood of $7 million a season. That’s why moving Boyle appears all but likely in my opinion.

Senators Lacking Determination

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,

Meanwhile, Senators fans should find nothing funny about the team’s passive play of late, especially Saturday night. Both the coach and Mike Fisher, he of unquestioned character and leadership qualities, pointed out the lack of determination, grit and desire against a team led by guys named Boyd Devereaux, Robbie Earl, Dominic Moore, Jiri Tlusty and Matt Stajan.

The Senators should be ashamed of themselves.

Where is the passion? Where are “the balls,” as Paddock wondered yesterday?

Did you see the way the Montreal Canadiens battled in defeat yesterday?

The Senators aren’t showing nearly enough of that jam.

Yzerman Will Lead Team Canada, What About The Wings?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ken Campbell of the Hockey News,

Sources have indicated to thehockeynews.com that former Red Wings star and current Wings vice-president Steve Yzerman will return for a second stint as the GM for Canada’s entry in the World Championship this spring when he is named to the post in a news conference Monday morning….

That Hockey Canada president Bob Nicholson is prepared to hand Yzerman the keys again this season indicates the enormous amount of confidence he has in Yzerman and also proves how Yzerman has matured as a savvy hockey executive. It also creates an interesting dynamic within the hierarchy of the Red Wings and could force several dominos to fall over sooner than expected.

Morning Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Boston Herald, Aaron Ward talking about the Bruins 3-1 loss to the Wings on Saturday,

“We should have won,” said defenseman Aaron Ward. “No one asked me, ‘Do you think you guys should have won this game?’ But, yeah, we should have. And that’s a big positive to come out of a game with.

“There’s not a guy in this locker room who doesn’t believe we should have won the game. Not to diminish what (the Red Wings) accomplished, but we should have won, plain and simple. And that is a good sign.”
