Tim Taylor Hip Shows No Improvement

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Lightning Strikes at the St. Peterburg Times,

Taylor said he will wait until then to give his hip every chance to improve, but admitted, “All signs are showing that I need the surgery. It’s getting worse as it goes along. I’m obviously disappointed I can’t get back to where I want to be.’‘
The surgery is major. It involves shaving and smoothing the top of Taylor’s right femur and inserting it into a new metal socket to ease movement. The catch: at least a six-month recovery. That means if Taylor has surgery in August, he won’t be back until at least February, or he might not come back at all.

Kings Searching For Dman

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Rich Hammond at Inside the Kings,

I’m told that the Kings are still shopping around for a defenseman, but I don’t get the sense that they MUST get one. It’s highly doubtful that it’s going to be Stuart and it’s certainly not going to be Souray. The Souray thing represents everything that’s wrong with Web site rumor-mongering. For days, the Kings were talked about as ``leaders’’ for Souray. The Kings aren’t interested in Souray and never have been, unless he wanted to sign some sort of one-year, bargain-basement deal, and that’s not going to happen.

Did you get that folks, “rumor-mongering” and Rich hits it right on the head…

The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed unrestricted free agent Brad Lukowich to a three-year contract.
“Brad Lukowich is a warrior,” Lightning general manager Jay Feaster said. “He plays the game with his heart on his sleeve and he does whatever it takes to win. He knows our system, he knows our core personnel, he knows how we do things in Tampa and what we expect from our players, and he is a winner. He is also a very good teammate and a popular player in the locker room. He has personality and spirit and old-school flair about him.

Bringing the Buzz Back to St. Louis

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From the AP via NHL.com,

Signing Paul Kariya to a three-year, $18 million free agent contract was a bit of a budget-busting move for the rebuilding St. Louis Blues.
But that doesn’t mean the franchise’s next move will be balancing the ledger with the payroll now at about $44 million, or about $4 million higher than new ownership had projected. Team president John Davidson said Tuesday no corresponding transactions are planned, and added the franchise isn’t out of the dwindling free agent market yet.

New Year For Nolan

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via NHL.com,

He heads to training camp a different player after a full comeback season under his belt. He missed two years after recovering from a serious knee injury and ended up with 40 points (16-24) in 76 games with the Phoenix Coyotes last season when he earned $1.225 million.
“I think the biggest issue I had last year was getting my timing down,” Nolan said on a conference call. “After being two years off, my timing took quite a while to come back, more than I expected. . . . Once I got that under control, I felt more free in the game, and I don’t think that’s going to be an issue this year.
“I know what to expect now, I know what the pace of the game is. I just expect to have a good year.”
