Projecting Sidney

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Alan Ryder of the Globe and Mail,

How good is Sidney? How good could he become? How does he compare with Wayne Gretzky, his landlord (Mario Lemieux), Steve Yzerman and the game’s other superstars? The best way to answer that question is to find a group of similar players and study their performance over time.
To properly conduct that analysis it is necessary to pay attention to three large factors — age of entry into the NHL, experience and playing time. There is a huge difference between the careers of players who are prominent in the NHL in their teens and those who attain prominence at a later age.

read on... interesting comparisons…

Chicago At The Deadline

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Daily Herald,

Perhaps the Hawks’ biggest asset on defense is Brent Seabrook, whose name continues to pop up in trade rumors with Pittsburgh and the New York Rangers.
“We’re getting calls, but we’re not shopping him,” Tallon said. “It would have to be something that knocked our socks off.”
Tallon was trying to deal defensemen Adrian Aucoin and Jassen Cullimore, but their contract situations were making it difficult. Aucoin is signed for two more years for $8 million, while Cullimore is owed $1.9 million for next year.
While it seemed for the last few weeks that the Hawks were showcasing backup goaltender Patrick Lalime for a possible trade, coach Denis Savard said Monday that Lalime was staying.

Caps Won’t Dither With Dainus

Blog: KK Hockey By George Malik

from the Washington Post:

Zubrus’s agent, Jerrold Colton, said he was in contact with the Capitals yesterday, but the sides remain apart on an extension. The sticking point, as has been previously reported, is the length of contract the Capitals are offering Zubrus, who wants a long-term pact.
“There have been discussions, but we are not there yet,” Colton said. “And there’s not a whole lot of time to do so. There’s been progress, but not enough to get a deal done. We’re certainly hopeful that we can make a deal, but it has to be the right deal.”
McPhee said: “We would like to sign a deal. But it had to be a good hockey decision. If the numbers are right, and it makes sense to the hockey department, then ownership will provide the money. But we’re not there yet.”
