No Love For Domi

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Edmonton Journal,

Toronto tough guy Tie Domi played his 1,000th game Friday night in Buffalo and the outpouring of misty-eyed emotion was unstoppable. Not from Domi, although he can produce plenty o' tears -- particularly crocodile ones -- when the occasion warrants. This is a man who made his living with his fists and his bizarrely unnatural ability to absorb punches to the head, both skills he has been happy, if not gleeful, to demonstrate at the flick of an eyelash since he entered the NHL in the 1989-90 season. One of his more memorable schticks may have been a teary mea culpa to the media a few years back after he delivered a cheap-shot elbow to the head of then-New Jersey defenceman Scott Niedermayer during the Stanley Cup semifinals. An act which got him suspended. That was vintage Domi, invoking his young son, blubbering that the action was out of character, on and on. It wasn't.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Denver Post,

Before the Avalanche returns to Denver for a Sunday home game against Calgary, Colorado general manager Pierre Lacroix will make deals to add a winger and/or a defenseman. How about Washington defenseman Brendan Witt, who makes $1.67 million this season, and/or St. Louis right wing Dallas Drake, who takes down $1.2 million?

OLN Game Tonight

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Nhl.com lists tonight's Islanders/Capitals game as being on OLN tonight. OLN website lists Canadiens/Flyers, which I believe is correct. No matter, it just shows a lack of communication again regarding the scheduling, something that needs to be addressed. Also, the Montreal/Philly game is scheduled for INHD2 tonight, so we have a "live" game in HD!!! update 9:32am, NHL.com has now fixed their schedule to reflect the Canadiens/Flyers game showing on OLN. image

Who ‘Wants’ Belfour

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Toronto Star,

If the Maple Leafs are to deal Ed Belfour before Thursday's NHL trade deadline they'll need the veteran goaltender to waive his no-trade clause, and there's a good chance he would do that if the team acquiring him picks up the final year of his contract. "I don't want to be anywhere where I'm not wanted," Belfour said when asked whether he would waive his clause. "I want to be where I'm wanted."

Luongo Expects To Stay With Florida

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Sun-Sentinel,

Roberto Luongo said Sunday he's not bothered by trade talk linking him to the Los Angeles Kings, adding that he expects to remain the Panthers' goalie when the trade deadline passes at 3 p.m. Thursday. "I don't want to say anything because I don't know what's going on, but I don't think anything's going to happen," Luongo said. "Given the situation, it's normal.

Refs Getting Their Voices Ready

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Mercury News,

We wrote last month that the NHL should instruct its referees to use their microphones to give fans an explanation on video-replay decisions and confusing calls. Turns out NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly agrees. "We'll be evaluating over the summer a system that would be more informative for the fans," Daly said during his visit to the Tank last week.

Erik Cole Suffers Neck Injury- Undergoing Further Examination

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via Sports Illustrated,

Carolina left wing Erik Cole returned to Raleigh on Sunday to be examined by team doctors after injuring his neck while being driven headfirst into the boards by Pittsburgh's Brooks Orpik during a 7-5 Hurricanes victory Saturday night. Rather than flying Sunday to New York, where the Hurricanes play the Rangers on Monday night, Cole went back to North Carolina to be seen by a neurologist and other physicians.
more update 1:15pm, via TSN,
Sources tell TSN that while the Hurricanes are still waiting for the official medical report from a Pittsburgh hospital, where Cole spent Saturday night after being hit from behind by Penguin defenceman Brooks Orpik, the prognosis is not good and that Cole is likely to be sidelined a minimum of two months, perhaps even longer than that. ''It's a pretty serious neck injury, it looks like a fracture,'' a source told TSN. ''He's going to be out for a significant period of time.''
update 2:16pm, via the Carolina Hurricanes,
Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that forward Erik Cole has a compression fracture in a vertebra in his neck and is expected to miss at least the remainder of the regular season. Forward Andrew Ladd will be recalled from Lowell of the American Hockey League tonight and will be available to play Monday night in New York against the Rangers.

Sabres Should Trade Biron

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

The Sabres know it, which is why they should be shopping Martin Biron when teams inquire about a goalie between now and Thursday. Biron has more value and therefore gives Buffalo a higher return in the trade market. Plus, he's older and more expensive. Better? Yes, but $1.4 million better? No, not when Ryan Miller is going to play 60-plus games. Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier has a history of waiting too long to pull the trigger, and he stayed true to form this season.
