Regehr Day-to-Day

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the CP,

The Calgary Flames received some much-needed good news Friday as defenceman Robyn Regehr’s foot injury was not as serious as originally thought.

After Regehr was examined Friday, a Flames spokesman said the diagnosis was a bone bruise and tissue damage in his left foot, which he sustained taking a shot off that foot in the second period of Thursday’s 3-2 shootout loss to Pittsburgh.

The team said following the game that Regehr had suffered a fracture.

Regehr is listed as day-to-day.

Yes…We Can

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Team Dub just suggested a liveblog on the post hi-jacked by hippies and criminals below.  We’ll start it here while I try and find a feed on the computer.  NHL Network has screwed me again. Blacked out.

For your reading pleasure at intermission.  Notice the selective use of exclamation points, always an indicator…at least in my book.

“Being named Hockeytown USA just confirms what all of our young players and their families believe, that we truly are the State of Hockey,” added Mark Jorgensen, Executive Director of Minnesota Hockey. “We’re proud to be a small part of that with so many other great hockey organizations!”

Oh…and there’s also this from Hockeytown (minus the Cups) USA.

And the final word from “the new Hockeytown’s” finest?

Thank God that is over.

Schneider On the Speculation

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Ducks Blog,

“It’s business as usual,” Schneider said. “It’s a unique situation. Everybody knows something is going to happen. There’s always speculation. Rumors are flying, and something’s going to happen. It’s in Brian’s hands right now, but as a player, all you can do is just show up every day and go out there and work, keep going. It’s nothing new to me. I think it probably affects young guys more than it affects veteran players.

I wasn’t naïve. I knew it was a possibility at any time. I signed my deal without any kind of trade clause in it, so it’s always a possibility. But at the same time, who knows what’s going to happen right now? We really don’t. No one has any kind of inkling. There are a lot of different scenarios that could unfold. Until it happens, there’s no sense really worrying about it.”

Nashville’s Weber Flies Under the Radar

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Ryan Dixon at THN,

Trotz acknowledges Weber and his former world juniors teammate, Dion Phaneuf, share many attributes. But the coach feels there’s another comparison that’s more appropriate when describing Weber’s game.

“He (reminds me) of a young Rob Blake,” Trotz said. “He’s going to be real strong, he can shoot the puck, he can play offensively and he can step up defensively.”

His championship-laden path to the NHL ensured Weber would receive a healthy amount of recognition. But the 49th pick from the stellar 2003 draft class doesn’t mind one bit playing for a team that, despite sporting mustard uniforms, can often fly under the radar.

“That doesn’t matter to me,” Weber said. “My teammates know what I can do, I know what they can do for me. That exposure just is not that big of a deal to me. If someone notices, they do. If not, just keep paying attention to the little things.”

Odds and Ends from Duhatschek

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Eric Duhatschek at the Globe & Mail,

Usually a pointless exercise, in the gridlocked NHL, except in the week of Scott Niedermayer’s return to the Anaheim Ducks, the team he helped to win the 2007 Stanley Cup. Before they can activate Niedermayer, the Ducks need to trade away a player signed to a contract through to the end of the 2008-09 earning around $900,000 to make the salary-cap numbers work. It would be easiest to move defenceman Mathieu Schneider, for a whole lot of reasons: First, Schneider was signed as Niedermayer’s replacement; with Niedermayer returning, the need to have him in the line-up is greatly reduced.

Tagged- You Figure It Out

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ken Campbell of the Hockey News,

I’ve been exchanging emails with NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly all day and I was on the phone with an NHL executive for one hour, seventeen minutes and 14 seconds and I’m still no closer to deciphering the NHL’s “tagging” rules than I was before the exercise….

Let’s take, for example, Exhibit 50.5 (e) (iv) (C) (2), shall we? It explains part of the tagging rule this way:

“In order for a Club to sign (a player) to a multi-year SPC after Dec. 1 of a season, the Club must have Payroll Room equal to or in excess of the Averaged Amount of the Player Salary and Bonuses for the remainder of such season. If, however,...

How Not To Make Friends In Detroit

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Russo’s Rants,

Good afternoon from gloomy Detroit, which from my experience, is usually the way Detroit is.

As I told Kent Youngblood — aka No. 2 — the other day, I must have been asleep at the wheel when I didn’t give Kent this trip.

But fool me once, shame on you; Fool me twice, shame on me (I got that right, right?). No. 2 will be coming to Detroit next month, guaranteed, when it will be cold and gloomy, guaranteed.

continued... at least a little game talk…
