Tampa Talks Turn to Martin St. Louis

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the St. Petersburg Times,

That leaves Martin St. Louis as the only big piece of the Lightning's puzzle left to be re-signed. St. Louis' agent, Lewis Gross, is expected to meet with Feaster on Thursday in Tampa to discuss what is believed to be a multi-year deal that could pay St. Louis, the 2003-04 NHL MVP, somewhere between $4-million and $5-million a year. While Feaster is confident St. Louis will be re-signed, talks could get sticky now that Lecavalier is the highest-paid player on the team and in the same pay scale as Calgary's Jarome Iginla and Boston's Joe Thornton.

Rivals Working Together

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

Wayne Gretzky insists he never worried he might wander into the Team Canada locker room one day and find his Olympic coaching staff in a roiling three-way melee. Sitting a few feet away from Gretzky, head coach Pat Quinn recalls a different version of the evolution of what has become a fascinating relationship with often bitter NHL rivals Ken Hitchcock and Jacques Martin.

What Will ESPN Do

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Media Life Magazine,

There’s certainly some irony here. Weeks ago ESPN passed on renewing its hockey rights deal, having implied during the lockout that it didn’t care if it ever got hockey back, so poor were its ratings. But this week, possibly as soon as today, ESPN may extend its deal after all, and not entirely out of choice. The network might do it simply to keep the NHL out of the hands of OLN, which has suddenly become a big worry for ESPN. How things have changed.

Joseph to Phoenix is Official

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Some media sources are still doubting Joseph to Phoenix, but I just received confirmation that he officially signed with Phoenix. update 10:56am, from TSN,

Curtis Joseph has been taken off the list of available NHL free agents, as the Phoenix Coyotes have signed the veteran goaltender to a one-year contract. "We are very pleased to add a goaltender like Curtis with his many years of exceptional play and experience," said Coyotes General Manager Mike Barnett. "He is as excited to be coming to Phoenix as our fans will be in seeing him in a Coyotes uniform. We like this fit a lot."

Life After Hockey

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Canadian Business,

Many players find it hard to cope with retirement: some 70 former players currently seek help from the NHL Emergency Assistance Fund, 70% end up divorced after retirement, and others struggle with alcohol, drugs and gambling. By creating new programs to help players ease into retirement, the NHL is hoping for success stories off the ice. How do you help a bunch of retired 40-year-olds enter the world of business, after having had someone tell them what to do their whole lives? After all, less than 30% have taken university-level courses. The time pro athletes put into training to stay competitive leaves little time for anything else--even during the off-season. These guys may be talented on the ice, but what marketable skills can they offer outside the arena?

Calgary About to Sell-Out for the Season

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Calgary Sun via Slam,

Ken King refuses to use the s-word or the c-word these days. But the reality is sellouts and capacity crowds will provide the backdrop for each and every Flames game this season. Long before the puck drops Oct. 5 to open a new era for the NHL, every seat in the Saddledome will be spoken for. If you don't have tickets by month's end, you won't get any. The Calgary Flames will be sold out this year. It's that simple.

Forwards Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg and defenseman Niklas Kronwall are still unsigned, and the Wings had no progress to report on those fronts Tuesday.
