Miller Happy In Buffalo

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News,

(Ryan) Miller looked around and realized everything he wanted in his career was right here. He was the No. 1 goalie for a team that had a taste of success and was starving for it again. He had built a network of friends, people he trusted away from hockey. He had earned his place within the community and was guaranteed to make a good buck.

Mostly, though, he saw the core of teammates with whom he had built a strong bond, a group that had blossomed and helped the Sabres reach the Eastern Conference finals two straight years, blood brothers who wanted to stay together. He wasn’t looking to leave Buffalo for Detroit. He wanted to find the Red Wings’ success with the Sabres.

“It didn’t really click for them until they became a cohesive unit,” Miller said.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Craig Custance of the Sporting News,

The holdout is over. Thrashers goalie prospect Ondrej Pavelec will report to practice Thursday for the Chicago Wolves, his agent Allan Walsh told Sporting News. Pavelec hasn’t practiced with the team since he was assigned to Chicago by the Thrashers Saturday.

“(Thrashers G.M.) Don (Waddell) has had conversations with Ondrej, I’ve had many conversations with Don over the last three days,” Walsh said Wednesday afternoon. “I think we’ve reached a new understanding about Ondrej’s situation and with that understanding he’ll report to Chicago.”

Sharks Make The Financial Commitment

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from SanJoseSharks.com,

For the San Jose Sharks ownership group, the 2008-09 NHL season will see the club’s player payroll hit record levels. While team revenues may have trouble keeping up with the expenses, the Sharks owners are more than happy to provide the bankroll to keep a group together that has the potential to reward them with a Stanley Cup championship.

“Hockey is not a business for those looking to make a lot of money,” said Sharks President and Chief Executive Officer Greg Jamison. “Our ownership group is committed to seeing a Stanley Cup parade in San Jose.”

The Right Attitude

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ted Leonsis of Ted’s Take,

The last time we were picked this highly and with this much expectation, we didn’t even qualify for the playoffs.

So I think I liked it better when we were underdogs. Now we have the weight of expectations on our shoulders. I am hoping our shoulders are broad enough to carry these heightened expectations. There are so many great teams in the NHL. I would hate to give any team bulletin board fodder as motivation. We must remain hungry and very humble.
