UFA Talk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Eric Duhatschek mentioned between periods on CBC Lisdtrom will be meeting with Wings management at the NHL awards in Vancouver and it appears the Wings may have a difficult time signing him. He has a figure he wants met and the Wings have cap problems. Pierre LeBrun from the CP was also on and said Keenan is leaning towards trading Luong before the UFA period starts. The Kings have been sniffing around but the problem is Luongo wants to test UFA next year and no team will trade for hime without Luongo agreeing to a long term contract. Dallas is trying to trade Guerin, but no takers and it looks like the Stars will buy him out according to Duhatschek. Also brought up was Ed Jovanovski will not sign with Vancouver before the UFA period starts. He wants to test the market.

Hurricane Surprise

Eric Cole in the lineup and to quote Don Cherry, "Absolute Insane" to have him in the lineup. I am sure the Hurricanes received 100% clearance from the medical staff before making the decision.

Hitchcock Not Planning Any Move

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Philadelphia Inquirer via the Mercury News,

You may have noticed that the Vancouver Canucks still haven't announced who their coach is for next season. Rumors swirling around the Stanley Cup Finals had Flyers coach Ken Hitchcock as their top choice, if they could get him out of his contract. One NHL source close to the situation confirms that Hitchcock was on their list but not interested. Hitchcock is in the final year of his deal with Philadelphia. The Flyers have been s-l-o-w to re-up him, leading to speculation that Hitchcock would have been agreeable to voiding his last year with the Flyers and accepting a new job in British Columbia with long-term security. But Hitchcock is intensely loyal to the Flyers just as he was to Dallas. So despite the overtures, he didn't bite.

Saturday Morning Skate

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from ESPN,

Ah, the morning skate. Drills, no spills and, well, not much else. Until now. Live (sort of) from the Stanley Cup finals, NHL writer Scott Burnside and NHL editor Joy Russo give you a rink-side play-by-play. Russo: MacTavish is talking with someone who appears to be a member of the Oilers equipment staff. The man is holding a drill. Hmm, are the Oilers planning on planting a loonie somewhere in Part II of Coingate? Of course, this is pure speculation on our part.
more...this link will be updated during the Carolina skate too... added 12:59pm, MacTavish after Saturday skate answered a few questions, read them in the comment section... added 2:00pm, Laviolette comments added to same area...

Hockey Costs Japanese Couple

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Edmonton Journal,

The Kijimas arrived in Edmonton on June 1 and will leave for home on Monday. "We decided to come after the Oilers beat Anaheim, when we knew they were going to the finals," he said. By their calculations, they have spent at least $15,200 this trip -- $10,000 on airfare and the hotel, and $5,200 for the tickets they bought from scalpers to the three home games. Their tickets to Saturday's game cost them $1,000 each. "And they aren't even good tickets," said Takako. "Now we have to drink only water," joked Nobuyuki.

Western NY Watching SCF

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

Well, forget the idea that the star-studded NBA Finals on ABC affiliate Channel 7 will outdraw the Stanley Cup finals on the NBC affiliate locally. The Carolina-Edmonton series has just about doubled the ratings for the Dallas-Miami NBA matchup here. Channel 2's ratings are as much as four times the meager national ratings for the NHL. Channel 7 gets about half of the improving ratings that ABC has had for the NBA Finals.

Back To CBA School

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Columbus Dispatch,

The NHL yesterday rejected a number of contracts signed by European free agents, including two who signed with the Blue Jackets. The prospective Blue Jackets are Per Ledin, an agitator who plays in Sweden, and Janne Hauhtonen, a forward who plays in Finland. Both were to get a look in training camp, but would have had long odds on making the big club. Blue Jackets executive vice president and assistant general manager Jim Clark said the hang-up was in the fine print of the new collective bargaining agreement. "We attempted to sign these players to two-way contracts and the attempts failed," Clark said. "We obviously misinterpreted the CBA. We’ll spend time with their agents and determine exactly what their status is, and whether we can sign them after July 1."
