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.

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.

Recchi & LeClair May Be Moving On

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,

Precisely who the Penguins are shopping -- and with whom they are willing to part -- isn't clear, but right winger Mark Recchi remains the leading candidate to change teams. At least six clubs have inquired about his availability and, unless Recchi declines to approve a deal, it's nearly certain that he'll be moved. Left winger John LeClair, who had four goals in five games before last night, could draw some interest, although no specific team is known to have shown interest.

Witt Waiting For His Next Destination

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Washington Post (reg. req.),

Witt "made a difficult situation very easy," Capitals Coach Glen Hanlon said. "He played extremely hard every game. He's made a decision for his family and his career and we respect that. We just want to make sure that when we play against him, that we beat him." Nashville and Vancouver appear to be the leading candidates to land Witt, but the New York Rangers are also said to be interested.

Gambling On Goaltenders

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bob McKenzie of TSN,

Can the Colorado Avalanche win the Stanley Cup with Jose Theodore in net? Based on how he has played this year, you would say absolutely not. But this is a guy who is four years removed from being an NHL MVP.

All Eyes On Florida

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kevin Allen of USA TODAY,

With the trade deadline set for 3 p.m. ET on Thursday, there is considerable interest whether the Panthers will re-sign Olli Jokinen, or whether they will attempt to trade him. Even those contenders who wouldn't attempt to trade for him have interest because a Jokinen trade could affect the balance of power. Among the teams that would be interested in Jokinen are the Calgary Flames and Ottawa Senators, both of whom have Stanley Cup aspirations. Another possible dark horse would be the Nashville Predators, who have been pondering the possibility of landing a big physical center almost from the start of training camp.
