Khabibulin Wants Max

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the East Valley Tribune,

If the Coyotes, or any other NHL team, are interested in signing the NHL's No. 1 free agent goaltender, they had better bring a healthy checkbook along. NHL sources confirmed reports that Stanley Cup-winning goalie and Valley resident Nikolai Khabibulin — now an unrestricted free agent — is seeking an “NHL maximum” contract of $7.8 million a year. About a third of the 30 NHL teams have varying levels of interest in Khabibulin, who began his career with Winnipeg/Phoenix before being traded to Tampa Bay in March 2001 following a contract holdout lasting nearly two full seasons.

The Mighty Canucks of Anaheim

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Helene Elliott of the LA Times (reg. req.).

For Burke and Carlyle to succeed in Anaheim they'll have to break the Canuck mold and assemble a team that wins not just from October through mid-April, but in May and June. They'll have to create a strong identity that will elevate the Ducks above their current place as the junior entry in a wounded sport in a crowded market. The Burke-Carlyle Ducks can't be the Canucks with slightly different accents and better tans. Burke came to the Ducks a year after he was let go by the Vancouver Canucks, whom he built into an exciting regular-season team that never got past the second round of the playoffs during his six-season tenure. He has often said he wants the Ducks to play the same aggressive, up-tempo style as the Canucks did, even though it didn't get those teams far. His argument that his Canucks lost to rivals with higher payrolls doesn't entirely withstand scrutiny.

Niedermayer “Hot”

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Asbury Park Press,

The bidders are lining up for the right to line Scott Niedermayer's pockets. According to Niedermayer's agent Kevin Epp, 13 different teams reached out to inquire about the availability of the 2004 Norris Trophy winner Monday, the first day that unrestricted free agents hit the market. Of the 13 teams involved, Epp said eight or nine were serious players for the Devils defenseman. "Three or four of those teams are sticking around to see if they can afford him," Epp said. Epp did not expect Niedermayer to make a decision before Friday.

Sens Business Strategy May Fail

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ottawa Business Journal,

With the Ottawa Senators back in business, a multi-pronged marketing approach to win back disgruntled fans has been activated. Lower ticket prices, gameday events and various community outreach programs are in place to steer the team in the right direction. However, a local business professor has concerns about whether the strategy will be successful. "Just to assume the stadium will fill up again – maybe it will – but I would be concerned if I was running a multi-million business," says Carleton University business professor Bill Lawson.

Wings Deny Thornton Rumor

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mlive,

Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland was busy working the phones Monday, the first day of NHL free agency. There was little activity, as GMs and player agents try to gauge the marketplace under the league's new $39 million salary cap. In the meantime, the Red Wings refuted a rumor that they're on the verge of a blockbuster trade in which they would acquire center Joe Thornton from the Boston Bruins for Pavel Datsyuk.

OLN and the NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from NY Newsday,

Imagine a prime-time, nationally televised NHL game preceded by a bass fishing or hunting show and followed by the day's sports highlights on a fast-moving, comprehensive roundup show. Sounds like ESPN2 from a pre-NHL lockout season, doesn't it? Actually, that could be the lineup on Outdoor Life Network before long. The 10-year-old cable network, which has 150 employees tucked away in offices in Stamford and nearby South Norwalk, Conn., attracted 1.7 million viewers for its telecast of the final stage of the recent Tour De France, and is aiming for bigger game: The NHL and the NFL.
