McKenzie Breaks It All Down

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Yes hockey fans, the Nashville situation is getting more frustrating by the day…

Bob McKenzie from TSN gives us some insight…

As it relates to Craig Leipold: In my estimation, Leipold wasn’t coerced by the league into potentially taking a lesser offer, he did so because he’s a practical man. And if Leipold knew anything, he knew that Balsillie was never going to be approved by the league as the owner of the Predators. Not now. Not ever.
It wasn’t always that way. I believe Leipold thought at the outset of his dealings with Balsillie it was possible for Balsillie and the league to find some common ground, but that quickly evaporated when it seemed every move made by Balsillie was an affront to the way the league does business. Leipold said as much in his correspondence to the league last week, when he said, he was “unaware” of Balsillie’s singular determination to take the franchise to Hamilton.

Yashin Wants To Help A Team Win The Cup

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Staten Island Advance,

“I want to help a team be better and win a Stanley Cup,” said Yashin last night in Charleston at a youth hockey clinic operated by old friend and countryman Alexei Kasatonov. “It’s been one of my dreams; that hasn’t changed since I first started playing hockey.”...
“I’m going to prepare for the upcoming season like I have in past years,” said Yashin, who said he hasn’t been contacted yet by another NHL team, though Internet rumors list Detroit and Minnesota as possible suitors. “We’ll see after July 1 (when the free-agency signing period begins). I’m looking forward to the future.”

Ortmeyer May Be Out Of Rangers Plans

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Record,

Tom Renney said Wednesday during the team’s Prospect Development Camp that while he understands the business could force Ortmeyer to sign elsewhere, he’s not ruling him out of his plans just yet.
“I’ll consider him a New York Ranger until he signs somewhere else,” Renney said of Ortmeyer, who played in 50 games, including 9-of-10 in the postseason, after sitting out the first 41 regular-season games while recovering from a pulmonary embolism.
Brendan Shanahan, though, is an unrestricted free agent who figures into the Rangers’ plans. Shanahan, who last year played on a one-year, $4 million contract and turns 39 in January, has said that he intends to return for a 20th NHL season and wants it to be with the Rangers.
“If he’s going to play hockey this year, there isn’t much doubt in anyone’s mind that he wants to play for the New York Rangers,” said Rick Curran, Shanahan’s agent.

from News Wire Services via the Buffalo News,

A television station reported Wednesday night that the Buffalo Sabres have begun negotiations with co-captains Daniel Briere and Chris Drury, both of whom are due to become unrestricted free agents at 12:01 p.m. on Sunday.
The Sabres made Briere an offer late Wednesday evening, Buffalo’s WGRZ-TV reported. It’s not clear what the offer is for a player seeking a minimum four-year deal, and expected to command a $6 million-a-year salary.
Briere finished 10th in the NHL with a career-high 95 points (32 goals, 63 assists).
Briere’s agent Pat Brisson declined comment.
