Suspension Details For Simon

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via TSN Breaking News,

New York Islanders forward Chris Simon has been suspended for 15 regular season games and seven playoff games for slashing New York Rangers forward Ryan Hollweg in the face.

update 1:53pm, TSN has removed the alert, hmmm.

update 1:55pm, via NHL.com,

Colin Campbell, NHL Senior Executive Vice President and Director of Hockey Operations, conducted a disciplinary hearing this morning with New York Islanders forward Chris Simon, Islanders team representatives and a representative of the National Hockey League Players’ Association.
A decision relative to that hearing has not yet been made. Any report to the contrary is false.

added 2:43pm, via On the Islanders Beat at Newsday,

It’s uncertain when a decision will be handed down. There might be concern on the league’s part about how its ruling could affect a criminal probe launched by the office of Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice, especially in a situation where neither Hollweg, the Rangers nor the league requested legal intervention.

Talking Broadband

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Multichannel News,

The NHL also hasn’t announced a launch date for its broadband service, but the league said it would open the broadband feed to anyone for a fee — most likely mirroring the $129 cost of the NHL Center Ice linear service. Customers who already subscribe to Center Ice via satellite or digital cable would receive a rebate.
While Ritter said the league hopes to generate incremental revenue from the broadband service, it’s more a complementary service to coverage from its national TV rights holders Versus and NBC, as well as the various regional sports networks.
“I think we live in a world where people want to access content however they want to access it,” said Ritter, adding that close to 80% of traffic on NHL.com is accessed via broadband connection.

Pay To Watch

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Ottawa Citizen,

Gouging fans with a 40-per-cent premium on single-game tickets for Leafs-Senators games at Scotiabank Place is bad enough. (You can stay away, right?) But a $10.95 charge, plus tax, to be able to watch Thursday’s game in the sanctity of your own home is simply outrageous.
Many fans are already buying Centre Ice, a supplementary hockey package available through digital cable or satellite TV, in order to get games from all NHL markets. But one game you certainly don’t expect to be paying for on TV—other than what it costs in electricity to power your television—is the Senators versus the Leafs. In fact, until last night, Leafs-Senators games had always been broadcast on those free regular channels.

Stanley Cup Ring Retired

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

TORONTO (March 9, 2007) – For the second time in history, the Hockey Hall of Fame today ceremoniously removed a ring containing the names of past winners from the Stanley Cup.
The ring was officially moved to a new public display case as part of a ceremony conducted today by Hockey Hall of Fame curator Phil Pritchard, five-time Cup winner Marcel Pronovost (as a member of the Detroit Red Wings in 1950, 52, 53 and 54 and with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1967) and two-time winner Gaye Stewart (1942 and 47 with the Maple Leafs).
The removed ring lists the names associated with the 13 Stanley Cup winners from 1940-41 to 1952-53. Every 13 years the oldest ring is removed from the Cup and a new ring is added for future winners.

Verbeek Goes The Management Route

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Globe and Mail,

Asked where his future lies in the game, as a coach or a scout, Verbeek chose door No. 3. “Management is much easier on your ticker,” he said. “I enjoy coaching and there is a lot of reward in it. But I like the challenge of assembling and putting teams together.”
Verbeek, 42, is five years removed from the final National Hockey League season of his 19-year career. He played for the Sudbury Wolves of the Ontario Hockey League and was drafted 43rd overall in 1982 by the New Jersey Devils.

LeClair May Still Be A Flyer

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Courier Post,

John LeClair may retire as a Flyer after all.
Considered one of the most popular players in the team’s 40-year history, LeClair visited the Skate Zone Friday, where he underwent a physical.
The Flyers are considering signing LeClair to a tryout contract and allowing him to play the final two or three games of the regular season in a Flyers uniform.

Forsberg Close To Return

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Tennessean,

Predators center Peter Forsberg was back on the ice on Friday, skating for the first time since he recorded three assists in a win over Los Angeles on March 3.
Forsberg didn’t go full-speed through practice and he probably won’t play tonight against Columbus. But Forsberg said he hopes to be ready either Tuesday or Wednesday, when the Predators play back-to-back games against Detroit….
Asked if Forsberg’s current ailment is something that bothered him before the trade, Poile smiled and said: “Well, what didn’t bother him in Philly or over his career? He’s had a lot of different things. I can tell you very confidently that he’s going to be back soon. This is more of a bumps-and-bruises kind of thing.”

GM’s Say Cap Rise Won’t Cause Competitive Gap

Blog: KK Hockey By George Malik

from Tim Wharnsby of the Globe and Mail:

“Even though we will see bigger names hit the unrestricted free-agent market every summer, I don’t believe that free agency will play a bigger role than under the previous [non salary cap collective agreement],” one National Hockey League GM said.
“Maybe, if the cap continues to increase, we’ll see some of the bigger market clubs gain an advantage because we’ll begin to see some teams set their own team payroll cap.”

“There are different formulas for building winning franchises in a salary-cap world,” another club executive said. “But I think we’re more like junior hockey now, in the sense that a successful junior team keeps steady numbers of 17, 18 and 19-year-olds.

Phoenix Seeing Red

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Arizona Republic,

The Phoenix Coyotes are seeing red this season. Lots of it.
CEO Jeff Shumway said Friday that the hockey franchise is expected to hemorrhage about $30 million this year, compounding severe financial losses the team has suffered in recent years.
But Shumway added that team owner Jerry Moyes knew the organization was in dire fiscal straits when he took majority control of it a year ago. And Moyes has remained committed to seeing the Coyotes succeed both on and off the ice.
