Tarnstrom Trade Was Just That- Nothing More, Nothing Less

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Puck-rakers,

I asked Howson if this trade should be seen as a pre-cursor of moves to come. I didn’t think it had anything to do with the whole buyer-seller question at the trade deadline, but I had to ask. Here’s what he said.

“Not at all,” Howson said. “This trade, while it helps us right now, it doesn’t point us in one direction or the other in advance of the trade deadline.”

Trades Coming

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,

With the calendar hitting February, the month of the trade deadline, Thrashers general manager and head coach Don Waddell predicts an upswing in player swapping.

“I do believe there will be lots of trade activity in the next month or so,” Waddell said. “You may not have the high-end guys, but I see a host of deals. People look at the unrestricted free agents through different eyes. If you can’t keep them, you have to think about moving them along.”

Ryan Miller Should Play Tuesday

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

The Buffalo Sabres are breathing easier today because goaltender Ryan Miller’s knee injury is not serious and he should play Tuesday night in Boston.

Miller, who did not come out for the third period of Friday’s 5-4 shootout loss in Atlanta, suffered a bruise to the right knee when he was hit by Atlanta’s Chris Thorburn late in the second period.

“It looks like Ryan will be OK,” coach Lindy Ruff said after this morning’s 40-minute practice in the Buffalo State Ice Arena. “I would expect him back at practice on Monday. We didn’t think it was too serious and that was confirmed. For sure, I would anticipate him playing on Tuesday.”

Pulling For Mac in Peterborough

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Pretty good piece from Don Barrie of the Peterborough Examiner.  Darren McCarty played there briefly back in ‘88.

...the Wings will be watching to see if Darren could be worth signing at the trade deadline in February.

His value to previous Red Wing teams has not been forgotten.

Is there any wonder all of Michigan and every Red Wing’s fan anywhere is pulling for Darren McCarty to get it together and make it back, all the way to the Wings?

Here in Peterborough those who remember the very personable and likeable Darren from those days 20 years ago, must also be on his side.

Divers and Dives

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Scott Hannan was pushed.  Brett Lebda did it. I saw it.  Dominik Hasek dove. I didn’t see that but I can assume it.  Hejduk’s goal should have counted, but it didn’t.  And all of that made me smile last night, and still warms me this morning.  Somewhere in Denver the 6 remaining Dive fans angrily switched back to the Oxygen Channel, convinced the world is against them.

And we laughed at them.

Cullen Dealing With Sight Issues

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the News & Observer,

Cullen was scratched from Thursday night’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs because of vision problems stemming from the hit he suffered Dec. 26 at the hands of New York Rangers forward Colton Orr.

“It’s been frustrating, because physically, I feel great,” Cullen said Friday as he watched the Hurricanes practice at the RecZone. “I can practice fine, I can skate, I can handle the puck. I’m just having trouble seeing things on the ice normally.”...

“Hopefully he’ll feel better with time off and will make it back,” Hurricanes coach Peter Laviolette said. “Beyond that, I have no idea.”

Cullen said he has difficulty shifting his focus from near to far, particularly among moving objects. Needless to say, that makes playing the game of hockey difficult.
