Bruins Want To Hold On To Kessel

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Bruins Blog at the Boston Globe,

With the asking price for Marian Hossa being a young NHLer, a prospect, and a first-round pick, Kessel could be the first component of a trade for the Atlanta winger. However, Chiarelli made it sound like he’ll hold on to the 20-year-old, although he acknowledged he has listened to offers for every player on his roster, including Kessel.

Chiarelli denied a Toronto Sun report that had Kessel going to Philadelphia for forward Jeff Carter.

Atlanta Won’t Sign Hossa

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Craig Custance at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,

On Saturday morning, Waddell officially closed the book on the possibility of signing Hossa before Tuesday’s trade deadline.

“No, I don’t believe so at this point,” said Waddell, when asked if signing Hossa before the trade deadline was a possibility. “We’re going to look at all our options at this point, look at what the market will pay.”

Both Hossa and Waddell described the meeting as a positive one.

a little more...

Even though most of us expected Hossa would not come to terms with Atlanta, at least we know it is now official. 

thanks to a KK reader for the heads-up!

That is the message Cole’s agent Elliott Kerr will take to Scott Moore, the head of CBC Sports, when the two meet next month to discuss Cole’s future.

Sundin Still True To His Word

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TSN,

Sundin spoke to the media at Saturday’s morning skate and admitted that interim GM Cliff Fletcher had asked him to waive his clause, allowing the club to pursue a trade.

‘‘The Leafs gave me a chance to think about it and all that but as I said my position hasn’t changed since the start of the year.

‘‘I have to do what feels right in my heart. I just don’t think I can go to another team if I don’t want to play for another team. That wouldn’t be right to myself. That’s how I feel right now.’‘

Edmonton Should Make Some Moves

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Dan Barnes of the Edmonton Journal,

Sources have confirmed Lowe is trying to insinuate himself into the bidding war, such as it is, for overpriced Tampa Bay forward Brad Richards. Lowe hinted at it on Friday’s pay-per-view broadcast.

“Potentially a high-end player, if something of that type was available, that would be good,” he said.

His phone calls to Tampa GM Jay Feaster will likely go for naught, since Richards’ deal contains a no-movement clause and the chances of him hopping from one non-contender to another, with the attendant drop in temperature, would seem ridiculously small….

Lowe should get his nose dirty and try to move the underachieving Jarret Stoll and enigmatic Joni Pitkanen while there are willing buyers like Ottawa, Tampa and the Montreal Canadiens.

Jokinen Needs To Be Better

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Miami Herald,

With his team reeling, Panthers coach Jacques Martin indicated Friday he wants leading scorer Olli Jokinen to raise his game.

‘‘We need more out of people like Olli,’’ Martin said. ``We need more away from the puck. Other people have been contributing.’‘...

‘‘If it were your skate, you can imagine what you would go through,’’ he said. ``It has definitely been tough. Maybe I haven’t gotten enough rest….”

Richards Would Look Good In Columbus

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch,

Rumor is, Tampa Bay Lightning center Brad Richards is available and the Blue Jackets are making a pitch. This is juicy.

The rumor first floated on TSN, the Canadian sports-television network, on Wednesday. TSN suggested that the Jackets were “front-runners” in the bidding. Dispatch reporter Aaron Portzline confirmed as much, and reported that the Jackets had two scouts, including Don Boyd, director of player personnel, scouting the Lightning-Islanders game Thursday night in Uniondale, N.Y.

Oh, man, if the Jackets can get their hands on this guy . . . he’s perfect for them.
