Montreal Interested in Roman Hamrlik - SIGNED

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From RDS, this report in French, translated by Google (and me)  imperfectly as,

The Canadiens currently court the Czech defender Roman Hamrlik, who played with Flames of Calgary last year. According to what RDS learned, the Tricolour one is ahead of other teams.

Update: translation adjusted because Yves (in the comments) was nice enough to point out my dumb error. (oops!) Thanks! smile

Update 5:14pm ET:
From Habs Inside Out,

Canadiens General Manager Bob Gainey announced today the signing of free agent defenceman Roman Hamrlik to a four-year contract (2007-08 to 2010-11). As per club policy, financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Inside/Out will have salary details soon, and we’ll be on a conference call at 5:30 p.m. ET, posting Hamrlik’s comments shortly thereafter.

Drury Wins #23

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the New York Rangers,

Both wearing No. 23 jerseys, Drury and Gomez were ushered out to a press conference by Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather and Head Coach Tom Renney. Recognizing that both players had a preference for No. 23, which Drury wore in Buffalo and Gomez in New Jersey, Sather flipped a puck to determine who would wear the number for the Blueshirts next season.
The winner of the puck flip was Drury, who grew up a Rangers fan in Trumbull, Conn., and has described the opportunity to play in New York as a dream come true.

more and it is my understanding the Rangers will be archiving the video of the press conference too…

Money To Spend

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Falconer at DTTHLT (too long to type),

There are several good free agents left out there. I was curious to know which teams had money left under the cap so I ran the numbers. I’m sure this is not perfect, but using lots of web resources here are the MINIMUM salary commitments for each team as of 3:00 Monday.

Avalanche of Peter Forsberg Rumors

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Adrian Dater at the Denver Post,

Foppa had surgery Thursday and plans to test out his right ankle on skates either later this week or early next. If he feels terrible, retirement is a definite option. If he feels great, he’ll play again. The question remains: will he take probably a bit less money to play here than he could probably get on the open market, and do the Avs even want him back?
Both are uncertain right now, but I do believe Foppa would take a good discount to play on this team again, especially with yesterday’s signings.

Sabres Tried To Match Drury Offer

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

The Buffalo Sabres this afternoon said they were willing to match the offer Chris Drury received from the New York Rangers on Sunday, but the popular co-captain didn’t give them the chance.
“The decision was to go to the New York Rangers,” Regier said. “It was a personal choice, and I respect that choice.
“He called me after and expressed his desire to go there. He was grateful for everything that he achieved here, individually and collectively, but that’s what unrestricted free agency is. It’s an opportunity to choose where you want to go.”

MSM- Take (& You Are On) Notice

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Rich Hammond at Inside the Kings,

I know yesterday was a frustrating day for Kings fans, but I wanted to again say thanks for the tremendous support. Yesterday, this page got HUGE traffic, so much that the managing editor of the paper e-mailed me to say so. That’s staggering to me, and again I thank you for the continued interest and support.

continued... and I point to this hoping the MSM will realize hockey is alive and well.  You have seen my stats from yesterday and I am sure other bloggers had the same increase.

Now go read what Eric at Off Wing found…

Here’s an idea—why not treat ESPN personalities like Mike Greenburg who run down the sport the same way we ought to treat anybody who has too much power?
Fight the power. Question authority. Think for yourself. Watch hockey.
