Wings Cap Room

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

How much cap room do the Wings have to pull of a trade? I have read anywhere between $600k and $1 million. Abel to Yzerman thinks the Wings have more cap room than people think.

Players Not Moving

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Spector of Fox Sports,

As history has shown, most recently with Joe Thornton, no player is truly untouchable and a trade involving a top player in his prime can always occur, but those deals are few and far between, and usually involve a sweetheart package in return. There's already plenty of focus on players believed likely to move by 3 p.m. ET Thursday, so here's a list of player who won't be dealt by the trade deadline. Shane Doan, Phoenix Coyotes Sheldon Souray, Montreal Canadiens

NHL Looking For Ratings Therefore No Small Market Teams

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Al Strachan of the Toronto Sun,

At 3 p.m. today, the mind-set of the National Hockey League's New York office will undergo a radical shift. Until that time, the movers and shakers will be doing what they have done all season -- silently but fervently rooting for the success of the small-market teams. But after 3 p.m., they'll fall back on the widely accepted attitude so succinctly expressed by the late John McMullen, owner of the New Jersey Devils at the time, when he said: "To hell with the small-market teams."

Jagr Needs A Protractor

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

In last night's loss to Atlanta, Jagr was called for a penalty in OT for using an illegal stick. In the shootout another Jagr stick was measured and found to be illegal therefore eliminating him from participation in the shootout. "It was not illegal," Jagr insisted. "I know they're going to measure. Why would I go out with an illegal stick? It depends on how you measure it. You have to measure from the bottom of the stick. If [the referee] doesn't do it, what are you going to do?"

NYI Pull Plug On Season

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the NY Post,

The Islanders essentially pulled the plug on their season last night when they traded popular right wing Mark Parrish and defenseman Brent Sopel to Los Angeles for young talents Jeff Tambellini, Denis Grebeshkov and a conditional draft pick. While the deal was made for the future, at present the Islanders have had a dependable core player and assistant captain ripped from the room.

JFJ A .286 Hitter

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

frsom Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

John Ferguson has a plan. I know this to be true because he keeps telling me he has a plan. He said so last April. He said so last June. "The plan," he said, "is already in motion." Last August, after free agency began and the Leafs didn't, he said: "We have a plan and we're sticking to it."

Gainey Takes A Chance

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Red Fisher of the Montreal Gazette,

I'll say this about Bob Gainey: the guy has never been afraid to take chances. He has the backbone to rock the boat. Trouble is, there's always the chance of sinking it. Jose Theodore for David Aebischer? Hoo boy! Clearly, for the Canadiens, it starts with the money game. Salary-cap money. With Theodore, his three-year contract, ($4.5 million this season) averages out to $5.3 million.

Rumors Everywhere

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

deom Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

The Wild is demanding a king's ransom for D Willie Mitchell. The Canucks are interested, but Vancouver GM David Nonis is having a difficult time choking back Minny's asking price of a No. 1 pick and a top prospect. The Flyers are also looking for blue-line help, but they aren't going to give up F Mike Richards in return.
