Smyth News

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Adrian Dater of the Denver Post,

Barring something unexpected - always a high possibility in this crazy business - I believe you’ll be hearing about Ryan Smyth becoming a member of the Avalanche soon. A grade A source tells me a deal is close to being done. Stay tuned. And don’t kill the messenger if the deal falls through!

Update 6:23pm ET (by Alanah)
The link above stopped working for some reason. The original story appears to be missing, but Dater references it online here as well:

Still waiting on a Smyth deal. These things can be complicated. These are the top two lines I see for this season, if Smyth brings his mullet to Denver:
Smyth-Sakic-Brunette
Wolski-Stastny-Hejduk

Update 7:12pm ET (Alanah)
Dater is now acknowledging that he did remove his original post deliberately.

Let’s just all sit and wait for the proper authorities to alert us of any big Avalanche deals today, OK? I took a previous blog about a Ryan Smyth deal down not long ago, because I forgot about a parliamentary procedure to post a “news” story like that. That was the reason, not anything else.
There are a lot of other teams that are after the same guys the Avs are after, and it’s no guarantee ANY of them will be coming to our Dusty Old Cowtown yet. So, again, breathe in, breathe out. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Hmmm… this is probably not going to go over well with Avs fans, I’m guessing.

Burke On Niedermayer

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Anaheim Ducks,

“Scott Niedermayer has informed me that he is leaning toward retirement,” said Burke. “Typical of his character and leadership, he made the call this morning in order to allow us to make alternative plans in the event he does not return. Although he has not retired and would be welcomed back, we felt adding another top NHL defenseman was critical to defending our championship. Mathieu Schneider fits into that category and will be a great addition to our team.”

Rafalski To The Wings

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Per the Emperor and TSN.

5 years/30 mil.

Essentially, the Wings have given up potent scoring for a very steady defenseman who can put up 50 points per season, and quarterback the PP almost as well as Schneider.  I’ll withhold comment on this until we see what else Wunderkind is up to.

added 7:23pm, Check out the transcript of the interview Rafalski did with TSN… Great job George…
