Mid-November Rumors

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

If Scott Niedermayer does decide to return, what does Burke do? He signed D Mathieu Schneider to a two-year, $11.5-million deal. Several teams—including Vancouver, Edmonton, Colorado and Atlanta—are looking for help on the blueline and would be interested in Schneider.

What A Comeback

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Normally I don’t do game recaps, but last night the Kings were down 4-0 going into the 3rd period and came back to win 6-5 in OT…

from the AP via NHL.com,

Marty Turco didn’t seem too rattled after Dustin Brown spoiled his shutout bid with 7:14 left in the third period. After all, the Dallas Stars still had a three-goal lead, so what could possibly spoil it?

How about five goals on six shots?...

“The whole third period was brutal,” Turco said. “Other than embarrassing, it’s a total lack of respect for each other. You can’t just sit back and wait for it to go your way. You’ve got to make things happen. And we haven’t been making enough happen. We were just lucky to get a point out of all that.”

Watch the comeback…

Flames Hope To Avoid Offer Sheet For Phaneuf

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Calgary Sun,

Hot on the heels of a six-year extension for goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff, there’s talk in Calgary the Flames might be a small step closer to signing Dion Phaneuf to a long-term contract.

The 22-year-old defenceman’s agent, Don Meehan, was in town last week, and it’s believed he spent time meeting with Flames general manager Darryl Sutter about a possible extension.

Sources say talks were informal and could help lead to a deal but no dollars were discussed.

Phaneuf’s entry-level contract expires at the end of this season, and as a restricted free agent, he’d be a prime candidate for an offer sheet from another team.

J.R. Scores Goal #500

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From the CP via TSN,

Roenick raised his hands and yelled as soon as the referee signalled the goal. He was immediately mobbed by his teammates.

The game was delayed a few minutes as Roenick skated in front of the Sharks’ bench with the puck raised above his head. He pointed into the stands as the crowd gave him an extended standing ovation. Even a few of the Coyotes joined in tapping their sticks.

Roenick became the third American-born player to reach 500 goals. The nine-time all-star ranks 40th in goals and 44th in points on the NHL career lists.

About Time HNIC

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

How is this lineup for the Hockey Hot Stove- Al Strachan, Eric Duhatschek and Scott Morrison, all in studio.

Strachan says some talk going around the GM circle is Glenn Healy has being mentioned as the next GM of the Leafs.

Scott Morrison says the talk of Ray Emery going to the Kings in a trade isn’t true.

Strachan mentioned the Canucks would claim Richard Matvichuk if the Devils tried to bring him back up.  Devils may just let him sit and hope the Canucks try to make a deal with them.

added 10:43pm, from Eric Duhatschek of the the Globe and Mail,

It was fun being back on CBC’s Satellite Hot Stove Saturday - or the Hot Stove as they call it now, if only for the chance to work with Al Strachan again, after about a three-year absence. In the days when it was usually Strach, JD (John Davidson) and myself as the panelists, Strach always enjoyed wearing the black hat. He was at it again Saturday, suggesting there was gossip at the GMs level that John Ferguson might lose his job with the Toronto Maple Leafs by the end of the year and be replaced by TSN analyst Glenn Healy.

Pre-Game Scuffle

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Steve Zipaty at On the Rangers Beat,

During warmups, a helmetless Darcy Tucker and Sean Avery renewed acquaintances—-with words and shoves—-at the red line near the boards.

Avery yapped, Tucker took exception, they separated, then came together again as players from both sides gathered around and eventually, Avery skated away.

Tucker was just interviewed during the first period intermission and called Avery one of the classless players in the league.  Tucker and Avery did have a fight in the 1st period and Tucker was asked if it was over between Avery and himself.  Tucker said it is never over…

Meyer Back To The Islanders

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the New York Islanders,

Freddy Meyer is an Islander again.

General manager Garth Snow reacquired the 26-year old defenseman this afternoon, picking Meyer up on re-entry waivers from the Phoenix Coyotes.

“The injuries we’ve recently had on our blue line prove you can never have enough depth,” said Snow. “We’ve always liked Freddy. He’s an intense competitor and he’s a very solid defenseman in all areas who is still just 26 years old. We only lost him earlier in the season because of a numbers game. We are very happy to have Freddy back as an Islander.”

Kane Can Handle The Pressure

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Chicago Tribune,

It is an interactive wonderland worthy of a cover charge. It is a bedroom disguised as a virtual museum of hockey, perfectly ordered and brilliantly gleaming with trophies and plaques, jerseys and posters, a little boy’s dream documented and photographed so thoroughly and displaying such obvious success you have to assume this particular boy has gone on to greatness.

And you would be right. But it gets even better. It is history overlapping, Patrick Kane starring as Forrest Gump.

Kovalchuk Driven To Succeed

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,

Kovalchuk credits his father for handing down an intense, competitive drive, a drive Thrashers opponents have seen up close over the past two weeks.

It’s a competitive hunger that former teammate Dany Heatley got to know well in Atlanta, and saw again recently in Ottawa.

“It all goes back to hockey,” said Heatley, who still keeps in close touch with Kovalchuk. “How hungry he is to score. ... You can see that in games, his competitiveness. What I find is he’s like that in practice, scrimmages, a two-on-one drill — he wants to score. He’s hungry to score. He wants to win.”
