Dumb Hockey Rumors

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Puck Daddy at Yahoo! Sports,

The last two weeks have seen rumors surface just about every day about every single free agent, just like they have at every trade deadline and summer free-agent frenzy in recent memory. Here are some of the best of the worst rumors we, as hockey fans, have had to digest and regurgitate over the last several years:

read the list for some entertainingly-bogus rumors

Incidentally, that list reminded me of that “Ryan Smyth signs with Edmonton” deal erroneously reported on Sportsnet in 2007.  Quite the screw-up that was, so here’s a flashback of the day from Chris Zelkovich in the Toronto Star:

Possible UFA Moves For The Avalanche

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs,

If I were Giguere, I’d really look hard for a third-line center, a guy who can play some defense, a guy with speed. Is Mike Peca a little long in the tooth for such a role? Perhaps. But he’s a guy I might think about pretty hard. He played in the Cup Finals just two years ago with the Oilers, and he’s got talent. The problem is, he’s getting older and he’s hurt a lot.

But I definitely think the time has come to dump Tyler Arnason from a third-line role, and just get a guy in there who wants to check and play good defense. The Avs need a shutdown, checking line, period.

Stephane Yelle is also going to be available. Does Yeller still have something left in the tank? I think he could give the Avs a good year, for sure.

12 Hours Until Kenny’s Summer Starts

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Update 1250 EST: Coincidentally, I’m sure, Khan(!) just posted a little ditty on his blog that lists Sundin and Rolston as placeholders atop the Wing “wish list.”  Way to dig Ansar. Naturally, no credit to Kevin Allen for his revelation.

The Godfather just reported over on the Empire Home Page that Kevin Allen told the Fan590 this morning that Tick Tock’s just waiting until it’s all legal and stuff.  He’s going after Sundin and/or Rolston.

Now for those of you who are sad and confused:  Tampa Bay only has exclusive rights to deal with the hometown boy until midnight tonite. Then? It’s fair game fellas.

Let’s play make believe and pretend one of those guys is Dynasty bound.  You choose.  Oh, and just for fun—because I know you love the idea—I’ve included Tucker and Stillwuzzi.

Huet & Laich Updates

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Corey Masisak of the Washington Times,

Free agent signings will come fast and furious tomorrow, but where do some of the Caps’ key figures stand today? I will try to update this each time I find an agent willing to talk to me. First up this morning was Cristobal Huet’s representation, Stephen Bartlett.

Q: IS THERE ANY KIND OF UPDATE ON THE NEGOTIATIONS WITH HUET AND THE CAPS?

Bartlett: Nothing new really – I haven’t talked to the Caps in a while. I may give them a call today or vice versa. If tomorrow comes, the Capitals are still very much in our thoughts.

Q: DO YOU HAVE ANY SENSE OF HOW MANY TEAMS MIGHT BE INTERESTED TOMORROW?

Bartlett: You have to wait until Christmas morning to find out what is under the tree.

more on Huet and Brooks Laich too…
