Arbitration Not A Good Word In Buffalo

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

The Buffalo Sabres don’t like the arbitration process. They want it changed.
They also may have to go through it again this summer.
The deadline for restricted free agents to file for arbitration is 5 p.m. Thursday, and Sabres center Derek Roy plans to be on the list.
“We haven’t had any discussions yet with the club, so we’ll no doubt be filing for arbitration,” Roy’s agent, Larry Kelly, said Tuesday from his office in Ottawa.

Boston Bruins on the Sidelines

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From the Stephen Harris at the Boston Herald,

One day deeper into the NHL free agent market, the Bruins [team stats] again remained on the sidelines.
B’s general manager Peter Chiarelli said unequivocally he will try to sign additional free agent talent only if he can dump salaries off his current payroll. Myriad sources say he has tried for some time to find a team willing to take veteran winger Glen Murray and the $8.3 million he is owed over the next two years.

Free Agency Day 3

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Steve Keating at Reuters,

With most of the top players signed, sealed and delivered, teams continued to pick the bones of the NHL free agent market on Tuesday.
After two furious days of signings that included $50 million deals for Daniel Briere (to Philadelphia Flyers $52 million for eight years) and Scott Gomez (New York Rangers $51 million for seven years) teams were left scouring for bargains and scraps.
Most of the action on day three of the free agency period involved teams looking to plug holes left by the loss of their own unrestricted free agents.

Nashville Consortium Bids for Predators Franchise

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Tim Wharnsby at the Globe & Mail (Wednesday’s edition),

The Nashville Predators have a third party officially involved in what has become a turtle race to purchase the struggling National Hockey League franchise.
A local group, headed by health-care executives David Freeman and Herb Fritch and containing nearly 30 investors, put forth its bid to buy the Predators and keep them in Nashville.
The group’s spokesperson, lawyer Chase Cole, and Predators’ senior vice-president of communications Gerry Helper would not confirm the local syndicate’s proposal to team owner Craig Leipold, but a source connected with the group answered in the affirmative.

Negotiating with Sidney Crosby

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Darren Dreger at TSN,

Based on the free spending and length of contracts handed out this week, can you imagine the chaos that would erupt with Sidney Crosby available in unrestricted free agency?
Crosby isn’t eligible until 2012, but he is entering the final year of his entry level contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Discussions between the Penguins and Crosby’s agent Pat Brisson are ongoing with the expectation an extension will be announced soon.
However, this negotiation isn’t as simple as Mario Lemeiux writing a cheque.

Wings Will Be Fine

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Detroit Free Press via the Santa Barbara News,

On defense, the team will miss Schneider’s power-play acumen, but his replacement, Brian Rafalski, is four years younger and a better all-around player.
It may be tempting the fates to write this, but Niklas Kronwall, whose long history of fluky injuries hints at some sort of curse, is due to play a full season. There’s no question he has the skills of a top defenseman, and maybe this is the year we’ll see them displayed continually….
Once Dominik Hasek re-signs, the Wings will have an elite NHL goaltender, a five-time Norris Trophy winner, two superstar forwards and good surrounding players, many of whom are young. They’re no longer able to keep everyone every summer, but a look at their roster shows they’ll remain among the NHL’s contenders.

Flaws Exposed

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Al Strachan af Fox Sports,

And what do we see? Exactly the opposite of what Bettman intended when he introduced his fatally flawed salary-cap system.
The big-money, big-spending, big-market teams are back in the spotlight with a vengeance, even though Bettman shut down his league for a year and all but killed its support in the United States to prevent such an occurrence.
There was all that talk about “the level playing field” and “making the small-market teams competitive” and “bridging the gap” between the poor and the wealthy.
