Day 3: Ramping It Up

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

The Emperor has chimed in.  Kuklas Inc. will provide a 25 dollar gift certificate to IceJerseys.com for the winner of the “Replace the Fire On Ice Graphic and Slogan Because It Sucks” contest.  First two days have been eventful.  HockeyinHD submitted his child-like brilliance on Monday, then whined like a scorned child yesterday when Matt Schwartz forwarded his smoldering wallet of excellence.

This contest will be ongoing until training camp opens in September.  Then we’ll re-post all your submissions and leave it up to you to vote on the winner, because democracy is important to us.  Remember, .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) along with a slogan if it’s not obvious on the graphic

Retire Before It Is Too Late

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

fromAlan Adams of Sportsnet,

Why do NHLers keep trucking when either their time is up or the next hit they take might cause permanent damage?
This question is being posed here in light of the fact that Jeremy Roenick is waffling about whether to retire and Eric Lindros is looking for a team to play for in September.
We’re not dumping on either Lindros or Roenick here.
When they were in their prime, Lindros and Roenick were worth the price of admission. They could carry a team on their back - they each have at one time or another - and no one could question their leadership.
But that was then and this is now.

Leetch Vacates New York

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the New York Observer,

But every time a hockey player moves away, the neighborhood’s overall burliness suffers an immense blow. Alas, recent retiree Brian Leetch, a high-scoring New York Rangers defenseman for more than 16 seasons, has sold his apartment at the Bromley on West 83rd Street for $3.718 million.
“We had a painter that came in,” Mr. Kirman said. “The first thing he said is, ‘It looks like an athlete lives here.’” The apartment’s 47-foot-wide living and dining room has a floor-to-ceiling waterfall, which the Leetch family “turned off because their kids figured out that it was fun to play with the water.”

Nashville Still Needs The Corporate Buyer

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the NashvillePost.com,

Thursday’s rally to drive ticket sales for the Nashville Predators seems certain to draw legions of fans, but it may not have the desired effect in a critical area for the team – companies buying tickets.
Sources say that the all-day effort, which will be broadcast live on sports talk radio 104.5 The Zone, may be getting off the message that Nashville’s corporate community needs to step up more and buy the pricier tickets in the lower bowl….
As of today, season ticket sales were about 7,452. Last year, the final season ticket number was 8,758. Of current sales, 1,201 are new, according to figures obtained by NashvillePost.com. Of those, 467 are to businesses. That’s 38.9%, a little higher than the 35 percent of ticket sales last year to businesses, a good indicator that sales are moving in the direction the team has wanted for years.

Trade Of Cullen May Open Spot For Another Center

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from David Kolb at MSG Network,

Not only does the transaction clear cap space this year, but going forward as well. Cullen was slated to make $2.8 million a year through the 2009-2010 season, when he becomes an unrestricted free agent.
The space cleared will help the Rangers sign Sean Avery and Marcel Hossa, both of whom are headed to arbitration.
The extra elbow room may also allow Sather to possibly sign a veteran center like Michael Peca to slide into the third line center position.

Niedermayer Decision Still On Hold

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TSN,

Niedermayer’s agent, Kevin Epp told CKNW in Vancouver Tuesday that his All-Star client is still mulling things over.
“I think a decision will be made more near the end of the summer, before training camp begins in Anaheim,” he told the radio station. “I think he still has a lot of things to do here and a lot of things to think about. I think he’s going to wait until then, and he’ll make a decision before the NHL season begins.”

Drew Miller Takes The Cup On A Tour Of The Lansing Area

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Hockey Hall of Fame,

The Stanley Cup arrived and was taken first to the Miller family home, where family and a few close friends ran their fingers over the engraved surface, pointing out friends, former teammates and heroes.
Drew took the Stanley Cup over to Sparrow Hospital and shared his victory with the children in the pediatrics ward. It wasn’t his first visit there by any means, as he regularly visited the youngsters while attending college as part of the Spartan Buddies program.
