Caps Plan To Spend A Bit More

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Tarik El-Bashir,

The upcoming offseason for the Washington Capitals won't include any expensive forays into the free agent market, but rather "two or three" prudent additions aimed at complementing the team's youth movement, according to majority owner Ted Leonsis. "We'll spend a little bit more," Leonsis said yesterday in the hallway near the Capitals' locker room at Verizon Center. "I'm still more interested in building from within. I saw what happened when I got some free agents this year."

OLN Deserves Credit

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Sporting News,

This might sound like a free commercial for the NHL and its cable television partner, OLN. Maybe it is, but you have to give credit where credit is due. As a diehard hockey nut, I've watched OLN every chance I can, balancing their Monday and Tuesday night games with NHL Center ICE on DirecTV. Both packages are a godsend to somebody who actually can expand their horizons beyond the "stuffed down your throat sports" like basketball and others.

Suspicious Letter Mailed To Bertuzzi

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the AP,

A letter containing suspicious white powder triggered a quarantine for several hours at GM Place, home of the Vancouver Canucks. The substance was later determined to be not harmful. Police say the contents of the package leaked onto a desk when opened by Orca Bay staff Monday. None of the seven employees exposed to the material became ill. The letter referred to Canucks star Todd Bertuzzi, although no other details were released.

The NHL Is Breathing Again

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

The NHL said it would open up the game and create offence. It has. Gary Bettman's administration also vowed that new standards on annoying, game-killing fouls like hooking, interference and holding would not be relaxed when fall turned into winter. They haven't been. For a league that so often in the past didn't deliver on promises or allowed encouraging change to be swallowed up by creeping indifference, this is exciting new territory, indeed.

Roloson Not Delivering

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the National Post,

When the Edmonton Oilers tied their Stanley Cup playoff hopes to new No. 1 goalie Dwayne Roloson, they were expecting a stabilizer, not an anchor. It's painfully obvious Roloson is a mere shadow of his 2004 all-star self at this point. That may well reflect the rust accumulated and confidence lost as he spent time on the bench watching Manny Fernandez man the Wild net. Whatever the genesis of his troubles, the easy save is anything but as Roloson struggles to control even the most routine rebounds. Two of his 13 goals-against as an Oiler, the ugliest of them in fact, were scored into yawning twine while he flopped around the crease like a tuna on a slippery boat deck.

A Second Chance

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Ottawa Citizen,

Arnason has also gone from being a somewhat anonymous athlete in a city that embraces the Bears, Cubs, White Sox and Bulls to a city where the NHL will always be king. There's no place to hide in Ottawa, especially since Senators coach Bryan Murray placed Arnason on a line with captain Daniel Alfredsson and Bryan Smolinski. He has also left an organization that repeatedly questioned his commitment to hard work and defensive play to a squad that has given him a clean slate, a second chance to make a first impression.

Aebischer Will Be ‘Loved’ In Montreal

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Martin Brodeur via the Toronto Sun,

Montrealers are going to love him. Aebischer is capable of big performances when he's on his game. That was obvious during the Winter Olympics at Turin when he backstopped the Swiss to a 3-2 win over the Czechs, making 40 saves. I'm of the opinion that this deal will be profitable as much for the Canadiens as for the Colorado Avalanche. The biggest surprise to me wasn't the Theodore-Aebischer trade, but rather the fact that Canadiens management didn't take advantage of any money saved in salaries to go for the reinforcements they are going to need in the coming weeks.
