Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Yzerman chatted with Detroit media after today's practice at the JLA. Some people who have been spreading the rumor around the Detroit area that Yzerman was going to retire today will be disappointed in this news; he did not retire. update 3:17pm, Yzerman was asked about the 'McKenzie Report'- Yzerman said they should inteverview the person who wrote the article, he seems to know. Yzerman says some days he feels he could play forever, some days he doesn't. Yzerman is not to happy about the article, said McKenzie seems to know more about what his plans are than Yzerman does. update 3:36pm, Yzerman was also refering to a few other articles written by Detroit scribes. But I know he is not happy with the McKenzie article at all but does say they have the right to comment on anything they want to.

What Is A Carnival Without Dirt!

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Every Carnival needs a strongman and a clown and it looks like Sharks GM Doug Wilson and the Bruin's Mike O'Connell are up to the task. Their blockbuster Thornton for Sturm-Stuart-Primeau swap pulled in a big crowd.
So we are off and running with the 14th edition of the NHL Carnival. Great job by MT of Hockey Dirt.

Sabres Expect Profit

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

Buoyed by an 11.5 percent jump in tickets sold for their first dozen games this season at HSBC Arena, the Buffalo Sabres are projecting a slight profit in their first season of the "new" National Hockey League. And that is without considering projected revenue from a possible - perhaps even probable - playoff appearance. Sabres officials aren't talking about any multimillion-dollar profit bonanza this season, the first under the NHL's new streamlined salary structure. But based on the results of the first 12 games in Buffalo, heading into tonight's game against San Jose, the team's number-crunchers are projecting $51.8 million in revenue for the season, just above a projected $51.5 million in expenses.

Boston Players Meet With O’Connell

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

Sources told the Sun yesterday that O'Connell was summoned to the dressing room by upset Bruins veterans, who were demanding an explanation as to why their captain was shipped to San Jose. The meeting, according to sources, was somewhat "fiery." "I told the players that improving this team is my job," said O'Connell. "I have to make moves that will make this team better. If I don't do what it takes to make the Boston Bruins better, then I'm not doing my job."

What A Mess

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bob McKezie of TSN,

In a memo from Klatt to all NHLPA certified agents, a copy of which was obtained by TSN, Klatt is inviting the agents to meet informally with Bob Lanza, the legal counsel being retained by the dissidents, on Dec. 12 in Chicago, the day before the agents are scheduled to meet with NHLPA executive director Saskin. Those informal information sessions would be followed by a formal meeting on the morning of Dec. 13, just before Saskin’s scheduled session with the certified agents.

San Jose Gets Their Superstar

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the San Francisco Chronicle,

In newly acquired Joe Thornton, the Sharks have their first legitimate superstar who is in the prime of his career. Think about the elite players San Jose has had: Igor Larionov, Sergei Makarov, Teemu Selanne, Bernie Nichols and Mike Vernon. All were past their prime. Drop another level to high-profile stars: Adam Graves, Vincent Damphousse, Craig Janney, Gary Suter, Joe Murphy, Tony Granato, Al Iafrate and current general manager Doug Wilson -- all were riding out their careers.

Esche Always Fighting For #1

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Daily Times,

There is no goaltending controversy in Philadelphia. Esche is clearly the starter. Antero Niittymaki is clearly his backup. Advertisement But when Esche doesn’t play up to par, or his teammates fail him and leave him hanging out to dry, it would be difficult to pry that notion from the back of Esche’s mind. That’s because he witnessed it first hand just a few short years ago, albeit from a whole different perspective. When Esche arrived to the Flyers along with Michal Handzus in a trade that sent the popular Brian Boucher to Phoenix, he was considered a throw-in. He was the prototypical backup goalie.
