Goalie Style

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

imageFor something different, the AJC real estate section takes a look at a hockey home:

There is little in Kari Lehtonen’s home to remind him of the daily stresses of work.

A massage chair, a hot tub and vitamin water hint that his is a physical job, a job that punishes and pushes the body.

Lehtonen, goalie for the Atlanta Thrashers, created a home in Brookhaven that is calm, yet modern. It’s difficult to find any hockey paraphernalia. A few small awards can be found in a storage room the basement.

“I try to get away from that,” he said.

Stylin’ hockey players… I think we might have to start calling it the Sean Avery Effect.

Did Gainey Find His Impact Player

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jay Onrait of TSN,

Now Gainey is faced with a truly difficult decision and less than a week to make it.

If Ryder was the cog that would lead Montreal to land a world-class talent like Marian Hossa, it would be difficult for Gainey not to pull the trigger.

However, if a Ryder-for-Alex Tanguay deal was on the table, would it really make sense for Gainey to pull off such a deal with Flames GM Darryl Sutter? It’s hard to believe that whatever added offense Tanguay would provide, if any, would offset Ryder’s locker room presence. Not to mention the fact that the Newfoundland native appears to have re-discovered his scoring touch.

Columbus Attempting To Keep Foote

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Columbus Dispatch,

Howson met with defenseman Adam Foote’s agent, Rick Curran, on Sunday, their first talks toward getting Foote signed to a contract extension.

They’ll have further talks later this week.

It’s believed the two sides are discussing a two-year contract worth between $3 million and $4 million per season.

The Facebook Trade

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Behind the Jersey,

Like most college students, I am a Facebook user. So when a friend told me that a legit looking Valtteri Filppula profile updated his status with “traded to Atlanta…”, I had to take a look myself. It is probably the most legit looking hockey player Facebook profile I’ve seen, but that still doesn’t mean I believe it.

Antropov A Wanted Man

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Toronto Sun,

With defenceman Tomas Kaberle insisting he is not going anywhere, echoing the same sentiments as the other four members of the Maple Leafs “no-trade clause” fraternity, Antropov might very well be the most legitimate candidate to be moved by the Feb. 26 trade deadline.

In the prime of his career at age 28, Antropov’s value never has been higher. He’s managed to stickhandle his way around the injury bug for a change while reaching a career-high 21 goals, attractive traits for teams in the market for a hulking power forward.

All Talk - No Action

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

As NHL GMs wrapped up their meeting yesterday, Atlanta’s Don Waddell and San Jose’s Doug Wilson wandered off into a field for a discussion. The talk is Wilson has stepped up attempts to acquire RW Marian Hossa by offering C Patrick Marleau as part of a package.

Not far away on the patio at the Ritz Carlton Golf Resort, Colorado’s Francois Giguere and Toronto’s Cliff Fletcher held a brief conversation with the Avs trying to buy. Philadelphia’s Paul Holmgren stopped to chat with Edmonton’s Kevin Lowe.

What Happened?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

When the season is over, when the final tallies are counted and the standings are established, no one will differentiate between good points and bad points.

Know this, however - the term, “loser’s point” was made for last night’s Rangers hockey team that conspired to blow a 5-0 second-period lead on their way to an astonishing 6-5 shootout defeat to the Canadiens.

Done Deal?  McCarty Signing Imminent

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Update 0616: McCarty scored again for Grand Rapids last night.  More below.

Well, take a look at Khan(!).  The Deep Digger Captain is out ahead of the pack and may have just drilled an exclusive.

MLive

“We’ll very likely make him a contract offer,” Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said on Tuesday. “We’ll make a final assessment in the next day or two.”

The embattled Khan(!) got quite a few comments out of Holland. So many, in fact, that it appears Kenny was just waiting for someone to ask him the question.
