Wings Still Negotiating With Potential UFAa

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via Sports Illustrated,

Red Wings general manager Ken Holland has made offers to re-sign defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom, forward Brendan Shanahan and goaltender Chris Osgood but doesn't know if any of the three will agree to deals before free agency begins Saturday. "I'm trying to work with each of those players, and their agents, to find a number that works for them and works for us," Holland said Wednesday. "Hopefully, we'll find something that works for both sides in each of those three cases." "We really want Nick back, but we have to reach a deal that works for both sides," Holland said. "I talked to him and his agent recently, and we negotiated again on Monday. "If he and the other players we'd like to get back want the top end of market value, we're not going to be able to do all the things we want to do with our team."

McCabe Staying In Toronto

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TSN, Sources say defenceman Bryan McCabe, who is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on Saturday, has informed the NHL club he is accepting the five-year deal worh $5.75 million a year that was essentially negotiated a few weeks ago. McCabe had told the Leafs he needed some more time to settle some personal matters before making the commitment. The Leafs gave McCabe a deadline of Thursday to let them know whether he would accept the offer or not and sources says the Leafs received that commitment today. A formal announcement is expected in the next day or two. Update on hosting issue- I am still experiencing slow access to KK and about 10% of KK readers are too. Hopefully this will be addressed tonight by my hosting company. A full explanation is down a few posts.

Vancouver Closing In On Luongo Deal

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TSN,

Is goaltender Roberto Luongo on the verge of signing a four-year, $28 million US with the Vancouver Canucks? Sources close to the recently traded netminder suggest he is close to finalizing a long-term agreement for $7 million US a year, but Canucks General Manager Dave Nonis says reports of a new contract for Luongo are premature. "It's not done," he said. "I've had some conversations with (Luongo's agent) Gilles Lupien and we are continuing to work toward getting something done. But it's not done, not yet."

Grier Looks At Free Agency

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via Sports Illustrated,

Veteran forward Mike Grier is prepared to test free agency after the Buffalo Sabres said they aren't likely to re-sign him. Grier's agent, Jay Fee, said his client is open to returning to Buffalo and the two sides haven't ruled out making a deal later this summer. The NHL's free-agency period begins Saturday. "We'll see,'' Fee said Wednesday. "It's not like at this point it's a 'See you later,' type thing.'' Sabres general manager Darcy Regier, was not immediately available for comment, but has previously said he expected all three of Buffalo's unrestricted free-agent regulars - Grier and defensemen Jay McKee and Teppo Numminen - to test free agency.

Hosting Issue

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Some of you may be experiencing some issues with KK since 2:15pm today. I am having "Latency Issues"; whatever that means. It should be corrected soon. update 6:56pm, from my hosting company,

[Update - 5:10pm central US time] Quote from data center network operations staff where our equipment is housed: “Our peer Telia in San Jose is indeed having issues on the Telia side of the link. This is causing traffic overflow on our other links, and causing traffic to be rerouted to the LA area, resulting in slow load times and disconnects. Our network engineers are working with Telia to fix it, although we do not have an ETA at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience.”
update Thursday 12:55am, Everything seems back to normal...
Seems Telia’s crack fiber network engineers finally figure out what was wrong with their fiber connections in the SF bay area, which caused our Fremont, CA data center location to have to route traffic around the issues causing high traffic and high latency across the board until Telia fixed their issues. Only people using ISPs that peer (share network connections) with Telia were affected, people with ISPs with peering or IP transit from companies that did not use Telia’s network were completely unaffected.

Meet Todd Bertuzzi

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Florida Panthers, Q & A with Todd Bertuzzi-

Well Todd you’re getting sent across the continent here, what are you thinking about coming to South Florida and playing for Mike [Keenan] and the Panthers? I will be honest with you, last night was pretty difficult, and it’s been tough. I’ve been playing for Vancouver for a long time and basically growing up there, a lot of friends and awesome teammates so it was tough last night. Reality finally set in and I’m really excited to come there and working with Mike. I’ve had a good relationship with him and I’m looking forward to coming in there and getting a fresh start.

Shootout & Glow Puck Talk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bob Duff of the Windsor Star,

Utter the word shootout to Greg Wyshynski and don't be shocked if he fires back with a series of expletives. He despises the event that much. As a hockey fan, it pained Wyshynski to pummel the game he loves so much. As a journalist and a servant to the truth, he accepted that there was no choice. Author of the book, Glow Pucks & 10-Cent Beer, The 101 Worst Ideas in Sports History, as the title suggests, Wyshynski set out to rank the most unfortunate promotional ideas and biggest rules boondoggles in the history of the games we play.
