Gretzky On Nagy

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Arizona Republic,

“We weren’t winning,” Coach Wayne Gretzky replied when asked about trading Nagy, who leads the team with 41 points but who scored only eight goals. “I know he’s a good player but sometimes a player needs a different view, and we didn’t want an asset to just walk out the door (after the season).”
Nagy practiced with the Coyotes on Monday morning. While he was doing so, the Coyotes were completing the deal.
Two other teams also were willing to part with a first-round pick, but Phoenix opted for Dallas.

The best line of the story, roughly translated, goes like this…

A lot of rumours about Forsberg. But a thing feels all more safe - within some day and night or some days and night have we the reply each Forsberg plays the rest of the season.

I take it to mean, settle down folks, we will soon know about Foppa.

Rough translation of the full article, but nothing really new…

The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have agreed to a two-year contract extension with 5’10”, 185-pound forward Sami Kapanen, according to club General Manager Paul Holmgren. Kapanen is now signed through the 2008-09 season. Per club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.
“We are excited about having Sami around for a few more years,” said Holmgren in making the announcement. “We feel that he brings a lot of qualities to our hockey team in terms of what he does both on and off the ice. He is a quality person and he’s a good utility player who can play anywhere in our lineup.”

Sometimes It Happens

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via TSN,

It was so scary that Pittsburgh Penguins winger Ronald Petrovicky, who decked Newbury with a series of rights Saturday night, called the next day to make sure he was OK.
“I appreciate that and I told him that,” Newbury said Monday in the Leafs’ dressing room. “It was a freak accident that happens every once in a while in the game.”
They spoke for 10 minutes.
“I told him it wasn’t his fault,” said Newbury, who turns 25 next Monday. “He felt bad about what happened.”

ROY Leader

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John Buccigross of ESPN,

To me, Staal is now at the top of the Rookie of the Year class. He has produced offense despite playing minimal minutes, averaging six fewer minutes per game than the Kings’ Anze Kopitar and five fewer than Malkin. Malkin and Kopitar have had ample power-play time compared to Staal, boosting their overall points totals. However, Staal’s meaningful minutes, defensive acumen, offensive production and shot-blocking grit make him the rookie with the largest impact.

much more from John, a huge mailbag…

Remember This

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the newest blog of Stan Fischler,

Not that I’m into bragging or anything like that, but, remember, it was The Maven who reassured all you Rangers fans that the Blueshirts still had a heartbeat.
And let’s not forget that these reassurances were issues while virtually every other media type – especially the print guys – were jumping OFF the New York bandwagon faster than a Jagr wrist shot….
As I told you before the other blokes got around to it, the Sean Avery acquisition is the STEAL of steals and would be the catalyst for a revival.
