Report- Dave King Suffered A Heart Attack

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Sportsnet,

Newly hired Phoenix Coyotes assistant coach Dave King spent Tuesday night in a Seattle hospital.

Unconfirmed by the Coyotes, a source told sportsnet.ca the 61-year-old suffered what was believed to be a heart attack in the dressing room prior to a pre-season game in Seattle against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Paramedics worked on King as he was taken away on a stretcher.

added 5:29pm, The Bill Watters Show on 640am reporting it may have been low blood sugar.

The best suggestion, let’s wait for an official word on this.

added 5:58pm, via Aaron Portzline’s Twitter,

Dave King’s wife Linda says the sportsnet.ca report of heart attack is “absolutely not true.” He was faint, but tests show his heart is fine

I have to say, pretty shabby reporting from Sportsnet.

Finally, if Glendale fails to secure a new partner by the end of 2009, the leading contender for relocation is Kansas City, which already has a sparking arena (Sprint Center) clamoring for an anchor tenant.

Brad May Gets A Shot

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bruce MacLeod of Red Wings Corner,

If all goes well for the 37-year-old forward, he’ll wind up with a contract and a spot on either the Griffins or Red Wings roster.

May is not going with the Red Wings when they leave for Sweden, Sunday, according to Detroit vice president and general manager Ken Holland, May will not be offered a contract before then.

May can play for Grand Rapids without signing a contract, getting new 25-game PTOs (professional tryouts). But before he can play an NHL regular-season game, May needs a contract.

“I’ve been through a lot of different things, but I’ve never had a summer like this,” said May. “The phone wasn’t ringing off the hook. I wasn’t waking up to messages every day. This happened and it was right. Now it’s work. It’s out of my control. That’s what you have to do as a player, just show everything you have.”

Who Replaces Roenick’s ‘Voice’?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from CBC Sports,

Jeremy Roenick: The only guys I can think of that have the balls to speak their mind and to say things that are a little bit off the chart and off the record are [Marc] Savard in Boston and maybe [Washington star forward Alex] Ovechkin.

I think Ovechkin has the ability to say exactly what he wants to say, being off the cuff, being a little bit crazy, being a little bit edgy.

And I think Savard has the cockiness and arrogance to push the envelope. Plus, he’s got the ability to back it up….

Scott Oake:...Our best chance for outrageous quotes this year may be for the Russian players who are interviewed by publications back home and then claim they were misquoted or translated incorrectly from those remarks published in North America.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,

Jim Balsillie has once again sweetened his offer for the Phoenix Coyotes.

When U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Redfield T. Baum opened an emergency hearing Wednesday morning to hear arguments about whether or not he should force the warring parties – Coyotes owner Jerry Moyes, Balsilllie, the NHL and the city of Glendale – into mediation on the sale, one of Balsillie’s lawyers introduced three changes to his $242.5-million (all currency U.S.) offer, one of which was presented to Glendale city council on Tuesday night. Balsillie also conceded he is willing to keep the Coyotes in suburban Glendale for the coming NHL season.
