Is There A Deal Brewing

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Slam,

Sources close to Petr Nedved have told SLAM! Sports that the embattled Philadelphia Flyers’ centre may be headed back to the New York Rangers as part of a multi-team deal, instead of returning to Europe as many speculated.
Nedved is currently under contract for $2.4 million USD, and any team trading for him would be responsible for the remainder of his salary for the 2006-07 season.
NHL rosters are frozen beginning at midnight on Dec. 19 through Dec. 27 for the Holiday break.

Chara Just Wants A Win

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Matt Kalman at the HockeyJournal,

B’s head coach Dave Lewis and center Marc Savard both predicted Zdeno Chara’s return to Ottawa tomorrow night would be “exciting.”
But you’d never know it by talking to the giant defenseman.
“I’ve thought about it, obviously. It’s my former team, but now it’s just a matter of both teams want to win the game. And it’s business as usual,” Chara said after the B’s practiced at TD Banknorth Garden this morning and before they chartered to Ottawa for tomorrow night’s game with the Senators.

Khan(!): Hasek’s In

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Sanity prevails. Via MLive.

Dominik Hasek will start in goal tonight against Columbus, as coach Mike Babcock had a change of heart after saying two days ago that there's a good chance Chris Osgood will start. Osgood, who's ready to play, will dress as the backup for the first time since Nov. 10.

AO Steps Up

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Capital Insider, the blog of Tarik El-Bashir at the Washington Post,

I wrote last month that Ovechkin’s defense has improved significantly this season. Well, I’ve noticed, particularly in recent games, that defense is not the only area where he’s getting better.
As one person who watches him regularly said today, “It’s like he’s got rocket fuel in his skates” in recent weeks. Another person said he’s playing with greater “intensity and determination” than the first two months of the season.

Ellis Gets His Shot

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

According to the AP, Matt Ellis is on his way from Grand Rapids to Columbus. Word is he'll be in the lineup tonite. I'm going to point you to an email Joe Conklin wrote me last week, in response to some questions I had about the value of Ellis and Jiri Hudler. As you can see, the Griff organization is happy for Ellis today. December 15th, Joe Conklin/Grand Rapids Press

"Ellis is a power forward who gets most of his goals within 10 feet of the net. He's the hardest working player I've ever seen, both on and off the ice. He's a first-class guy who is a perfect fit to be the Griffins' captain. Every person in the Griffins' organization wants to see Ellis get a NHL chance."
Ellis will take Tomas Kopecky's spot on the roster. Who will sit? You tell me. My guess is Hudler, but you knew I'd say that. I'll have more on Ellis prior to game time tonite.

The Top “Alternates”

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Brad Fay at Sportsnet,

This week, with a handful of shopping days remaining, here’s a list that may inspire a gift idea.
Top five third (or alternate) jerseys in the NHL.
No. 5
Atlanta Thrashers—A cool blue colour sets them apart as does the unique lettering spelling Atlanta that runs down one arm. Their regular uniforms are crap—these are sweet.
