Plans For Trade Day Thursday

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

KK will be a little different starting tomorrow morning, but only for the day. I will try to post the daily hockey talk early in the morning, probably up to about 9:00am, then the rest of the day will be dedicated to trade talk. Depending on how busy I am during this time period, I may not be able to respond quickly to emails or comments but I am sure you understand that. Each new trade will be posted as a separate topic or thread, to make any breaking trade easier to find. If the topic is a possible trade, I will update that thread as information breaks, but if the talk becomes official, it will get a new topic. Even though the trade deadline ends tomorrow at 3:00pm EST, some trades may not be official until an hour or so after the deadline so look for KK to get back to normal at about 5:00pm. As always, if you hear anything, please .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) with a source and a link if possible.

What Goalie Is Next

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

...the market for goaltenders may now be tepid-to-lukewarm for the final hours leading up to Thursday's mid-day trading deadline. Unless the Coyotes drop the asking price for Joseph, he probably isn't going anywhere. Long-term, Noronen could be a good acquisition for a lot of teams, but he has just 189 minutes of NHL action to his credit this season (plus, a short conditioning stint with the Sabres' minor-league affiliate in Rochester this past week). For a team such as Edmonton, which wanted to stabilize its goaltending position with a view to going deep into the playoffs, moving on someone like Noronen was just too risky a proposition.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Cole Not Feeling Lucky

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the News & Observer,

One more foot-pound of pressure, doctors told Erik Cole, and the fractured vertebra he suffered could have had far more disastrous consequences. "It's tough to hear I was lucky," Cole said. "You don't feel very lucky in a hospital bed with a broken neck."... "To see the hit and see him only get a three-game suspension makes it hurt worse," Cole said.

Morrision Waived And More

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TSN,

Mike Morrison has been put on waivers by the the Edmonton Oilers, ending the team's three-goaltender rotation and perhaps signalling the liklihood of a trade for a bona fide number one keeper.
also via TSN,
The Boston Bruins have claimed Marius Czerkawski on waivers from the Toronto Maple Leafs. The following players are also on waivers today: Tampa's Norm Milley, Phoenix goalie Philippe Sauve; Philadelphia's Turner Stevenson; Atlanta's Rico Fata and Chicago's Andy Hilbert.

Moving Tkachuk Would Be Counterproductive

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

If he chose to do so, Blues general manager Larry Pleau could gobble up a few more mid- to late-round draft picks by selling off defenseman Eric Weinrich, captain Dallas Drake and perhaps forwards Dean McAmmond and Scott Young. He might fetch a bigger bounty for forward Keith Tkachuk, if the big guy agreed to be traded out of St. Louis before tomorrow’s deadline. But folks in and around the hockey operation believe that could be counterproductive.

Teams In The West Have Plans

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Phil Coffey of NHL.com,

Will trades be down because of the timing and the cap? NHL.com takes a look at the Western Conference to assess who might be looking to trade, whose selling and who is still kicking tires as the deadline nears. Minnesota Wild: Selling -- A bevy of unrestricted free agents could be moved at the deadline, including goalie Dwayne Roloson and defensemen Willie Mitchell, Andrei Zyuzin, Filip Kuba and Daniel Tjarnqvist. The were rumors out of Philadelphia that the Flyers were interested in veteran center Wes Walz.

Sabres Need To Add The ‘Right’ Player

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

Look, I understand the importance of chemistry. But adding the right player, a tough, selfless veteran with playoff experience, could enhance the Sabres' chemistry. When a team is on a roll, players often look for a sign from above, an acknowledgment that management believes they can make a title run. It's hard to imagine that Chris Drury and the other leaders wouldn't welcome a player who might put them over the top. True, the Sabres are young and there's no urgency to win right away. Regier shouldn't make a deal that compromises the future for one Stanley Cup run.
