Afternoon Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

It’s too bad arbitration hearings are kept private. When it came time to make their case, you can bet the Rangers were quite frank in assessing Zherdev’s weaknesses. The hearing probably had all the charm and good will of a divorce court.

Wouldn’t you love to be a fly on the wall when a guy like Rangers’ general manager Glen Sather tells a guy like Zherdev what he really thinks?

It’s All About Style

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Rory Boylen of The Hockey News,

The fan bases of Philadelphia, Toronto and Montreal are all optimistic their teams will hit the ice an improved entity this October.

When a pure softy with great hands and zero toughness – Kyle Wellwood – gets roughly the same contract worth of a guy with tremendous toughness and zero hands (Brashear) the hockey world is in a good place.

Everything should be done with moderation and too much of one or the other would upset a balance that has teetered in the NHL since the first expansion in 1967.

For the bubble-wrap lobby out there, hear this: Big, bad, grind-it-out hockey is here to stay, no matter which team or style wins it all in 2010.

Huddy Names Asst. Coach In Dallas

Blog: Hockey News Wire By Paul

FRISCO, Tex. – Dallas Stars General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk announced today that the club has named Charlie Huddy as assistant coach.

“We are extremely pleased to name Charlie Huddy to our coaching staff,” said Nieuwendyk. “He has a wealth of experience at the highest levels of hockey, and we know he’ll be a great fit with our young defensive corps. With his name on the Stanley Cup five times, plus three other trips to the Cup Final under his belt, he will certainly play an integral role in helping this team reach our goals.”

Huddy, 50, most recently served as an assistant coach with Edmonton for the past nine seasons (2000-2009) helping lead the Oilers to a 301-252-103 record during that span. Edmonton posted a 17-13 playoff record during his term as assistant coach, including a run to the 2006 Stanley Cup Final, in which the Oilers fell to Carolina in seven games.

Regier Loves His Sabres

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John McGourty of NHL.com,

Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier didn’t tinker much with his lineup over the summer, believing that if the team can stay relatively healthy, it’ll be a serious contender for the Northeast Division crown and more.

The local media has criticized Regier’s approach, but the players deeply appreciate his faith in them, said rugged forward Adam Mair.

“I love our team and I love our players,” Mair said. “When you look at the young players we’ve signed to long-term contracts, you can see that Darcy and upper management believe in those players. It would go against the plan to deviate and start bringing in new players because we missed the playoffs by two points.

Last season’s NFC Champions, the Cardinals are “opposing any special taxing district, or any similar plan that might impact the Cardinals and its fans,” attorneys for the team said in court documents.
