Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the New England Hockey Journal,

Here’s a look at what NHL scout David Kolb (Red Wings I believe) thinks of some of the free-agent signings from the first couple of days since the market opened: NICKLAS LIDSTROM- Detroit Big Nick deserves everything he gets.

WADE REDDEN- Ottawa With a few more years, he should evolve into a Norris-type player. His minutes will go up without Zdeno Chara around as a teammate. Ottawa should take a close look at handing the “C” over to Redden. ZDENO CHARA- Boston One thing the New York Rangers learned over the past decade is that you can’t buy a good team.

"I was thrilled with the approach that the Boston Bruins took in trying to sign me," said Chara, the former Ottawa defenseman. "They were very straightforward and after speaking with a few former players, Coach Lewis, and Jeff (Gorton), my decision was very easy to make. I'm very excited to be a part of this organization." "I'm not afraid of a challenge and I want to put this team on the winning track," Chara said. "Once we can do that, I want to contend for the Cup and be champions. "We will not be satisfied until we reach that final goal and that's winning the Stanley Cup. You need to have ‘will over skill.' You have to want it and possess that drive."
