How Dallas Plans To Use Richards

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

Tippett added that Richards could strike up a fast chemistry with Hagman and Miettinen, who are having career seasons with 22 and 13 goals, respectively. And, Tippett said, that will allow Modano to continue to play with Steve Ott and Jere Lehtinen on a checking line that has had great success during a run in which the Stars have won 12 of 14 games.

“When he applies himself as a strong two-way player, he’s as good as there is,” Tippett said of Modano.

Evening Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,

We could start up a trade deadline Groundhog Day just after the New Year begins, and let the presence or absence of Bob McKenzie’s shadow tell us whether or not we’ll have six more weeks of unfounded rumors. Just to be safe, I’m calling copyright dibs right now.

Here is a first, Alanah at Canucks and Beyond (hope the sailor doesn’t get upset),

And apologies to my favorite Avs fans out there—you know I love you and I’m truly sorry we must become enemies again.

Rangers Have All The Parts

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler at Game On,

As a matter of fact, I’ll now go on record stating that the acquisitions of Swedish defenseman Christian Backman and forward Fredrik (Call Me Freddie) Sjostrom will be as positive for the Blueshirts roster as last year’s addition of Sean (The Great Gabbo) Avery.

I’ll go one step further and hereby forecast that the roster, as now constituted, is good enough to carry New York to the top of the division and then all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Time For An Update

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

It’s been nearly two years since we took a hard look at the A2Y Glossary.  I plan on doing that this weekend.  But before I do, I’m soliciting your input.  Read it over. If you think there are entries that need to go, or have suggestions for phrases we haven’t placed in there yet…place your ideas in the comment section here.

I’ll (a) ignore them or (2) take full credit for their creation.

The Kubina Misunderstanding

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,

Pavel Kubina says the contretemps over a failed trade that would have sent him to the San Jose Sharks was all a misunderstanding.

Both he and his agent, former NHL player Petr Svoboda, said the Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman never agreed to waive his no-trade clause and then reneged on Monday night.

Pronger Has Minor Jaw Surgery

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the OC Register,

The Ducks could have a short-term hole on defense in light of their revelation that captain Chris Pronger underwent surgery Monday to repair a “small fracture” in his jaw suffered in Sunday’s 6-3 victory over visiting Chicago.

“It’s not clear how much time he will miss,” Burke said. “It’s certainly not expected to be lengthy. A game or two is the expectation at this time.”
