Ticket Sales Up For Buffalo - New Logo Talk Too

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

The Sabres usually tally their season-ticket count by adding full season-ticket holders to those who hold 10-packs and mini-packs. In that scenario, four 10-pack holders equal one season-ticket holder. The Sabres haven't even begun counting mini-packs yet - sales started July 17 - but the number of full season-ticket holders alone is almost at 12,000. The Sabres started last season with a combined season-ticket count of about 8,000. The arena seats 18,690. ...Despite the early negativity, Quinn is convinced people will embrace the new uniform, which will make its on-ice debut Sept. 30 during the Sabres' only preseason game in HSBC Arena. He said it will have sabres and word markings on it but didn't elaborate further, other than to say the secondary insignia of a capital B with a sword through it will not be used.

Moving On

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,

Getting Evgeni Malkin to North America and with the Penguins this year may require more creativity than originally planned if the Russian Ice Hockey Federation doesn't sign a transfer deal by a Monday deadline set by the NHL. "We have informed the (International Ice Hockey Federation) that, to the extent we do not have an agreement signed by the Russian national association on the terms previously offered and communicated to them by (Monday), we will proceed without a deal for the coming year," NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Thursday.

Talking With Two Goalies

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the NY Post (reg. req.),

A battle to be Martin Brodeur's backup is brewing. This one stands to be decided at the bargaining table when Lou Lamoriello decides which free agent to sign - the incumbent or a predecessor. The Post has learned the Devils are talking to former Ranger Mike Dunham about returning for a second stint in New Jersey at the same time they're courting Scott Clemmensen, their No. 2 last season.

Ziegler Doing Just Fine

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Treasure Coast Newspapers,

Fourteen years after retiring as NHL commissioner, Sewall's Point resident John Ziegler can't help but think like a lawyer, a commissioner and a hockey fan. The 11-year Treasure Coast resident served as commissioner for 15 years before moving to Sewall's Point. And even amongst the Florida heat he still has a passion for the game on ice. During his stint as commissioner, Ziegler had to deal with the competing World Hockey Association. He did so by adding four WHA teams to the NHL for the 1979-80 season. Ziegler retired after a strike over a collective bargaining agreement led in 1992. "It just didn't have to happen like that," Ziegler said. "After that, I just felt it was a good to retire." For a career that lasted three times as long as he thought it would, Ziegler is pretty satisfied. "I don't regret my choice to stay commissioner for as long as I did," he said. "I was in the great position where my avocation became my vocation."

A Few Signings

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

A little late, but as I have stated, I am trying to take some time off the next few weeks. I need a bit of a break. via the AP,

The New Jersey Devils re-signed Scott Gomez to a one-year, $5 million contract Thursday, ending speculation that the team would be unable to fit the 26-year-old forward's contract under the NHL's salary cap. The details of the contract were confirmed to The Associated Press by a person familiar with the negotiations who requested anonymity because the team had not yet announced the signing. The Devils did not immediately return a telephone message seeking comment.
The Detroit Red Wings avoided arbitration with Jason Williams on Thursday, re-signing the center to a two-year contract. Financial terms were not disclosed for Williams, who was scheduled for arbitration next Monday.
