The Summer Of 07

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

From Wes Goldstein of CBS Sportsline,

It might not have seemed like it, but things were pretty busy around the NHL this past summer. Here’s a look back at some of the most important events that took place….
5. Seeing the value: Despite the criticism the NHL gets for its lack of exposure and inability to make inroads in many American markets, there is obviously something about owning a franchise that appeals to people with money. How else do you explain the significant premiums paid this summer for the Nashville Predators and Tampa Bay Lightning? Both organizations have been burning cash for the past decade, but the sale prices they fetched suggest that NHL teams are much better investments than they appear to be on the surface.

Lesson Learned For Eric Staal

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the News & Observer,

Eric Staal knew his arrest would make the newspapers eventually. He never expected the kind of ink it garnered.
To wit: The full-page, front-page headline in the tabloid Toronto Sun reading “NHL Stars Gone Wild!” next to his mugshot and his younger brother Jordan’s.
“That was frightening,” the Carolina Hurricanes center said today in his first comments about his July 21 arrest. “I knew it would probably appear somewhere, sometime. I didn’t think it would be blown up into that big of a deal.
“I don’t know. I guess our name has been around a little bit the last couple years in hockey, so it turned into that.”

Panthers Playoff “Bubble” Team

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from E.J. Hradek of ESPN,

After near identical back-to-back seasons (they finished with 85 and 86 points, respectively), the Panthers seem ready to make a little more of a jump forward. They finished six points out of a playoff spot last season. If they can avoid another bad start to the season, maybe they can finally end their postseason drought.
I figure they’ll have more points and challenge for a playoff spot. I hope they get there. It would be nice to see one of the game’s most underrated players—Panthers captain Olli Jokinen—get a chance to show his stuff in the postseason.

Isbister Has The Talent

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Vancouver Province,

Beset by injuries and looking for a playoff spark last spring, Tom Renney inserted Brad Isbister on a line with Jaromir Jagr and Michael Nylander.
For the well-travelled Isbister, mired in the minors until recalled for the second time Feb. 21, it was a vote of confidence from the New York Rangers coach. It piqued the Vancouver Canucks’ interest in the big winger even more.
“You have to have some ability to play with those players,” Canucks general manager Dave Nonis said Tuesday. “We’ve had some interest in him for a couple of years. He can fill a lot of roles and played with a little more edge the last few years.

Emery Still Recoving From Wrist Surgery

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

While the Senators’ No. 1 goalie is recovering well from his June 21 wrist surgery, there’s a chance Emery might not play before Ottawa’s Oct. 3 season opener against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
“He’ll be ready for the start of the regular season,” said Emery’s agent J.P. Barry. “I saw (Emery) last week and he was doing well. The cast came off when it was supposed to come off and he’s able to do everything. He’ll be able to participate in drills, he’s just not going to be able to take shots on the glove side. I’m not sure if he’s going to be able to play in any exhibition games.”
