Status Of Two Leafs Contract Talks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Toronto Star,

Talks are continuing between Leafs and the camps for both Mats Sundin and Nik Antropov.
Leafs general manager John Ferguson and J.P. Barry, the agent for Sundin, are said to be close to a two-year, $11.5 million (all figures U.S.) deal. Both were taking in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals Monday night….
Talks between the Leafs and Don Meehan, Antropov’s agent, seem further apart.

A Different View

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from SportsYa (Spain),

Todd Marchant assisted on Andy McDonald. The latter made use of his ability to avoid defense, and he swoop over goaltender Ray Emery. Some minutes later, along came Anaheim’s second score.
Over a speedy attack, and after receiving Rob Niedermayer’s service, McDonald played up on an rival defender, nailing Emery. After that, the Californians twisted the board.

Can The Sens Rebound

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from The Maven,

So, now we’ll really see if there’s any guts in that Senators dressing room and that includes whining-pewling coach Bryan Murray.
We’ll see how that conniving captain Alfredsson behaves on the foreign rink when—I hope, I hope, I HOPE—he’s confronted dead-on by the princely Pronger.
And, of course, we’ll learn whether Jason Spezza wins his Rip Van Winkle audition which, so far, has gone so well for him—but not for the Senators.

more and anyone know why such hate for the Senators from Stan?

Suggestions For The Game

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from mjd at The Fanhouse,

But I’ve been thinking about what could get me back into hockey, and I’ve come up with five suggestions. It’s kind of a shame that I’m putting this post into FanHouse’s NHL section ... the people there already love their game, they don’t need me to sell them on it, and I hope this isn’t taken as an outsider telling hockey fans what’s wrong with their sport.
That’s not the intention here. I think hockey’s a solid and entertaining game to watch, and nothing would please me more than if the NHL could re-sink that hook into my mouth and reel me back in. Here are a few places they can start.
Someone, Somewhere in the NHL, Is Going to Have to Develop a Personality.
If Tim Duncan was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers tomorrow, he’d immediately become the most dynamic and outrageous personality in the NHL. That’s not good.

JSG- The Difference Maker

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

They stood 180 feet apart Monday night, but let’s just call it 3,000 miles. That was the distance separating Anaheim Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere from Ottawa Senators netminder Ray Emery when the postseason began. The Stanley Cup finals did little to close the gap.
You look at Giguere and see an allworld goalie. He’s 30 years old, calm, unflappable, dependable. You look at Emery and find a guy from another planet, a newbie still finding his way, a mistake waiting to happen. Eventually, for better or worse, every player is exposed in the playoffs.

Vancouver May Pull Off Another Pre-Draft Trade

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Vancouver Province,

“We’re attacking a number of different things, including getting ready for the draft,” Nonis said Monday. “Maybe there’s an opportunity to make a deal or two there that will change the look of our club. There’s not any one thing we’re targeting, but we’re looking at a number of different scenarios.”
It’s a safe bet that several of those scenarios are rooted in an effort to find more scoring.
The Canucks are running out of roster spots in their attempt to find more offence up front. The Taylor Pyatt signing appears to leave just one glaring hole among the Canucks’ top-six forward slots.

2-0 Without Pronger

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

Pronger said it was tough to watch the game “when you don’t have a say in it, when you can’t really go out and perform in those types of games that are as big as this one was tonight. It was tough and nerve-racking. Certainly, when your team plays as well as they did today and the guys step up.”
What makes Pronger so effective (and what made him attractive to the Ducks) is that blend of skill and menace. If he played any differently, would he still be Chris Pronger?
So last night, the Ducks took to the ice without him. Defenceman Joe DiPenta drew in, but Scott Niedermayer, François Beauchemin and Sean O’Donnell picked up all or most of Pronger’s minutes

Sens Caught By Surprise

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ken Campbell of the Hockey News,

The Ducks posted their 12th one-goal win and the third of the final in a 3-2 triumph over the Ottawa Senators in Game 4 Monday night. The winner came early in the third period when a Chris Phillips skate problem led to a 2-on-1 that was easily converted by Ducks winger Dustin Penner.
Phillips, whose skate had essentially blown up on the previous shift, lost an edge on his second pair of skates and it forced him to go back to the Senators bench with Teemu Selanne and Penner bearing down with the puck. A surprised Wade Redden had to jump onto the ice to replace Phillips, but couldn’t track Penner down quickly enough. Penner was coming on for Brad May for the Ducks and drove straight to the net.
“I wasn’t expecting to go on,” Redden said, “but still, I have to make a better (expletive) decision.”
