Nothing Much Changed

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Michael Farber of Sports Illustrated,

There was nothing on Thursday that would tip the balance of power or divert the route of the Stanley Cup. It will still go through places like Ottawa and Carolina in the East, Detroit and maybe stand-pat Dallas in the West. The drama was in the sheer numbers, not the names. But for a day, anyway, Rutherford and his colleagues kept all of Canada warm

Trade Day Hangover

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Is anyone else experiencing a slight headache when looking at your monitor? Today, at least for me, the hockey world is moving at 1/2 speed. After viewing who knows how many pages on the web yesterday, I am kicking back a little today. Some interesting KK stats from yesterday- Normally a visit by a reader lasts on the average a little over two minutes; yesterday it was 22 minutes. I hope your fingers are not sore from clicking refresh so many times!!! The first time visitors to KK yesterday were over 800, one question, where have you been? Normal page views per person per visit is around 3.2- yesterday 1.1 which tells me people were staying focused on just one topic- who was traded. I also received over 200 visits from IPs in Poland; were they all interested in where Brandon Bochenski would land? I also want to thank everyone for stopping by Kukla's Korner, especially those who do so on a daily basis. Now it gets fun with the playoff push and soon playoff talk- the best is yet to come.

Mitchell Trade All About Money

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Pioneer Press,

The Wild offered Mitchell $12 million over four years to forgo unrestricted free agency and remain on their blue line. Mitchell wanted at least $14 million for the same term. Neither side budged. So Minnesota quickly dissolved the relationship and shopped its best defenseman for redeemable assets, finding a taker in the Stars. And one of the Wild's most popular players was sent packing before he could test the market, which the team believed Mitchell intended to do all along. Wild coach Jacques Lemaire called Mitchell one of the top 10 defenders in the league, but was not fretting about losing him. "He feels he could get $3.5 million, good for him. I won't lose sleep because we lose a player. If he wants to go for the money, go for the money. The earth is still going to turn."

His Final Move

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Alan Hahn of Newsday,

An era came to an end yesterday when Mike Milbury made his last trade as Islanders general manager. The trade sent forward Oleg Kvasha and a conditional 2007 fifth-round pick to the Phoenix Coyotes for a 2006 third-round pick. Earlier in the day, Milbury sent veteran defenseman Brad Lukowich to the Devils for a 2006 third-round pick. It was a low-key way to go out for the man who once called himself "Mad Mike."

Luongo Sees Positives

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the South Florida Sun-Sentinel,

Jokinen's signing, coupled with the Panthers' only trade being minor-league forward Petr Taticek to the Penguins for NHL defenseman Ric Jackman, may lead to them also keeping goalie Roberto Luongo long term. "It's a positive for the organization that I'm going to take into consideration," Luongo said. "Not only the fact they were able to get Olli signed, but there was not a fire sale this year. Those are two huge factors. "[Thursday] showed a lot what are the intentions of the team. The only thing left to be seen is whom we sign in free agency this summer. If everything goes well, I'm sure I'll be signing long term in the future also."

Leafs Need Ovechkin

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Toronto Sun,

What the Leafs need is a fresh and inspirational player around whom a team can be built -- and it ain't Luke Richardson, whose career is winding down. If I were running the Leafs, I'd mortgage the farm to get Alex Ovechkin from the Washington Capitals. I'd trade any four or five Leafs for Ovechkin. He's that awesome. But would it benefit either the Leafs or Caps to enter into such a deal?

Burke Gets Serious

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Orange County Register,

Mighty Ducks general manager Brian Burke wanted to make a bold statement, one that would tell everyone the club is serious about landing a Stanley Cup playoff berth this season.... "We're aware people will look at this and say it's not an upgrade on defense," Burke said. "If you do the math, with one NHL player coming in on the blue line and two going, if you break it down on that simple level, it looks like subtraction. We made the decision it's not that simple. "If we were dumping (salary) and not trying to make the playoffs, we would have done very different deals."
