Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

While most of us were busy haggling over Stillwoozi or Jason Williams or Mike Grier?

Tick Tock was digging deeper and so, as you’ll see, was George Malik.

TSN

Is This The Wings Right-Handed Shot?

via TSN,

The Detroit Red Wings signed free agent forward Patrick Eaves to a one-year contract on Tuesday, financial details were not disclosed.

Over his 74 games with the Carolina Hurricanes in 2008/09, the 25-year-old scored six goals with eight assists and a plus-7 rating. Eaves has played in 242 career NHL games and has score 45 goals and added 45 assists.

added 3:47pm, Here is an old story on Eaves when he was a sophomore at Boston College…

from Jay Hedstrom of BC Heights (Boston College),

Patrick Eaves, and brother Ben, had a somewhat different childhood than most. The Eaves family had moved 15 or 16 times by the time the boys went off to college. No matter where the family moved, however, the hockey sticks were always packed away.

“It started out in St. Cloud,” recalled the younger brother. “I was three years old, Ben was five. My father built a rink in our backyard. We had a little piece of ice out back. We went out there for about 10 minutes at a time and had to come warm up then go back out.”

To say that the Eaves are a “hockey family” would be an understatement. Patrick’s father, Mike, punched his time card with the NHL for eight seasons, playing for the Minnesota North Stars and the Calgary Flames.

added 4:45pm, According to Wings beat writer Bruce MacLeod, salary is $500K.  Also, don’t forget he was recently bought out by the Bruins for $1.1M.

Avery Talks Rangers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Steve Zipay of Blue Notes at Newsday,

Before lacing up his skates,  Avery talked about his newest teammates, his coach and the upcoming season:

            On Donald Brashear: “I know he’s a scary dude…I’ve never fought him; I’ve never been dumb enough to do that… It’s always good to have a presence physically on the team, whether it’s a guy on the back or a guy upfront, I think it’s something that’s important, and as much as people say it’s not a part of the game, it is

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?

-Jamie Fitzpatrick of Jamie’s Hockey Blog at About.  Read more from Jamie about this arbitration case…

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.
