Players Want To Stay In Detroit

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune,

From top to bottom—from the drafting led by European superscout Hakan Andersson to the recruiting of free agents such as Marian Hossa to the convincing of homegrown star after star to accept “hometown discounts” to remain inside a franchise that has created an unparalleled culture of winning, nobody does it better.

The Red Wings are the envy of 29 teams.

“They’re in a unique situation,” Wild GM Doug Risebrough said. “I was on a plane with [Red Wings coach] Mike Babcock the other day and I told him, ‘If anybody wants to pursue your model, it’s a ridiculous thing. Guys want to stay there. You have a culture there of winning. ... Nobody can follow your model.’”

In this salary-cap era, Holland has managed to preserve his impressive core and last season win a fourth Stanley Cup in 11 years.

The Pansification Talk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Christie Blatchford of the Globe and Mail,

...Mr. Milbury now finds himself at the centre of a hullabaloo, confined almost exclusively to The Globe’s sports pages (where my colleague William Houston carefully has noted, in that uniquely Globe and Mail manner, that pansification is “a derivative of the word pansy”) and a gay advocacy group called Egale Canada, whose director is hopping mad about what she says is the “derogatory, stereotypical” term and who has complained to the CBC.

Even Don Cherry has got into the act, with Mr. Houston reporting Friday that Grapes has pledged not to use the dreaded term himself and has furthermore identified himself as a supporter of gay initiatives.

Well, as an old mare who was publicly called a filly, it is hardly a surprise that I am less than sensitive to the use of language, and find pretty much all such controversies silly.

Look At The Future UFA For Possible Trade Deadline Deals

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Wigge of NHL.com,

...So that brings us back to the potential unrestricted free-agent list and who might be available. For those still unconvinced about where most of these trades will come from, here is a list of UFAs already dealt this season—Daryl Sydor went from Pittsburgh to Dallas for Philippe Boucher; Brad May went from Anaheim to Toronto; Jason LaBarbera went from Los Angeles to Vancouver; Jason Williams went from Atlanta to Columbus for Clay Wilson; Dany Sabourin went from Pittsburgh to Edmonton. Florida defenseman Cory Murphy went on waivers to Tampa Bay, and Ottawa goalie Martin Gerber, also a potential UFA, likely will wind up in another NHL city soon.
