Arbitration Season

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From TSN,

Nobody likes it, but it’s something that remains unavoidable for some NHL teams and restricted free agents unable to resolve their contract stalemate.
It’s salary arbitration time again in the NHL and already one third of the 29 players that were originally slated for hearings have settled their cases. Expect more of that as the hearings approach, starting Monday with the first case, Brooks Laich and the Washington Capitals.

NHL’s Most Eligible Bachelor

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

Philladelphia goes Hollywood, and hockey defenseman Randy Jones is taking it seriously. Well, hopefully, not too seriously.

He’s participated in a feature on Extra! entertainment television as on of America’s Most Eligible Bachelors.

Philadelphia Flyers hunk Randy Jones is looking for love – but he’s acting a little shy.
“I cannot believe I’m doing this!” he exclaimed to “Extra” as we pressed him for his vital stats.
But we got them – and it’s hard to believe. This 26-year-old, 6’2’’ hockey sensation is ripped and knows how to break a sweat. [...]

And, for the ladies – boxers of briefs?

“Boxers, and sometimes none,” he admitted. “Never briefs, my Fruit of the Loom days are over!”

Check out the video.

Effective Message Management

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Sergei Fedorov isn’t speaking to the Russian media.  How do I know that?  Because in an interview with the Russian media he told them he’s no longer speaking to them.  Got it? 

“37 year old center of the Columbus Blue Jackets Sergei Fedorov, who according to rumors was going to get his contract bought out by his club to be then traded to the Detroit Red Wings declined to comment the situation. 

—I just flew in to LA from Detroit, Fedorov yesterday told Igor Larin of Sport-Express.  In California I am planning to undergo the treatment for elbow and groin injuries.  Regarding possibilities of any moves to another club, I will not discuss this subject.  Besides, in the middle of the last season before the start of the World Championship in Moscow I decided not to talk to Russian reporters.”

Good point Sergei.

I don’t have the link, but will post it for all the Russian linguists out there as soon as I get it.

Overpaying

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,

At this point, though, it isn’t likely too many teams will be foolish enough to throw a ton of money or term at the guys who still are desirous – remember that old Three’s Company joke? No? God, I’m aging – of officially contracted employment. So it’s a good time to look back over the last three weeks and rate, in reverse order, the top five worst silly-season signings….
3. Roman Hamrlik to the Montreal Canadiens for four years and $22 million. Five-and-a-half million a season for a guy who hasn’t put up more than 12 goals and 42 points in a single season since 2000-01 isn’t my idea of bang for your buck.

Grigorenko On Second Line With Datsyuk?

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

That appears to be what an optimistic organ-I-zation would like to see this fall.  Jim Nill spoke with nhl.com’s John McGourty about Grigorenko and a few other prospects.

“We think he’ll be a really good second-line guy that might suit Datsyuk. He has the potential to be a star, but it’s one day at a time to start. For instance, if we want him to go to the minors to catch up with the speed, how does he accept that? It won’t do him any good to struggle up here and not play much. A lot of Europeans don’t respect the AHL, but four weeks in the minors might be the best way to get up to NHL speed.”

Nice Look At The Voice Of The Kings

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Acorn,

“My life changed dramatically right from the announcement that (Gretsky) was becoming a King,” Miller said. “The (number of) telecasts increased from 30 to 62 that first year. Our season ticket holders more than doubled. I would go around town and people would start recognizing me for the first time. It was great to see L.A. finally come to embrace hockey.”
Miller made the call of his life when Gretsky broke Gordie Howe’s scoring record in 1989.
“It’s my favorite moment in my broadcasting career,” Miller said. “I didn’t want it to sound too rehearsed, but then someone called me up asking what I was going to say when he broke the record.
“When he scored I waited a few seconds and said, ‘Wayne Gretsky, the Great One, has just become the greatest of them all- the leading scorer in the history of the National Hockey League.’ I’m just thankful that it was a clear goal so I was able to call the play accurately.”

Al Arbour Returns For One Last Game

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the New York Islanders,

Hall of Fame coach Al Arbour will return to Long Island to coach his 1,500th regular season game with the Islanders on Saturday, November 3 when the team hosts Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Nassau Coliseum at 7:00 pm. The legendary coach celebrates his 75th birthday on November 1.
Earlier this week Arbour accepted an invitation from Ted Nolan to run the team for one last game and reach the milestone of 1,500 games coached with the franchise he led to four consecutive Stanley Cups from 1980 - 1983. Arbour will sign a one-day contract on Friday, November 2 and lead the team the following night against the Penguins.

added 11:56am, from David Kolb at MSG Network,

This is more than a PR move by the Islanders; a franchise infatuated with embracing their four Cups won 20-plus years ago.
This move exemplifies the passion for the game Nolan truly possesses. That would be the only way this unique idea would even surfaced in Nolan’s mind. He isn’t the first coach since Arbour retired, but he was the first to think of this class act.

read on a pretty good video of Arbour…
