Around The NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Shawn Roarke of Fox Sports,

As the race for the Stanley Cup is set to begin in earnest with the opening of training camps this coming week, the current holders — the Tampa Bay Lightning — gather in South Florida as virtually forgotten champions. Now, hockey has returned; and it is governed by a spanking-new, restrictive economic system. And, again the Lightning are somewhat forgotten as all the attention focuses on the unprecedented player movement that has occurred this summer, completely reshaping many of the league's franchises. Few, if any, fans are talking about the Lightning's chances to defend their hard-earned crown.

Lecavalier And NHL 06

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from teamxbox,

It’s a great time to be a hockey fan, and a hockey player for that matter. The NHL season is less than a month away and we can finally forget about the lost season from the labor dispute. It’s time for some hockey!!! With EA’s long running hockey series, NHL 06 releasing this week, who better to talk hockey with than cover athlete Vincent Lecavalier? The center of the defending Stanley Cup Champion Tampa Bay Lightning took a few minutes to talk about the upcoming season and his role with NHL 06.

Talking Central Division

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Kris Draper, Adrian Aucoin, Rick Nash, Paul Kariya and Patrick Lalime participated in the Central Division Conference call yesterday. Well worth the time to read the long transcript. Q. Kris, especially in light of Pavel Datsyuk's apparent decision to stay in Russia, could you talk about how the Red Wings have been affected by the new CBA and by the salary cap and how much the team has changed as a result of that? KRIS DRAPER: It's definitely affected us a lot. Not only were we unable to get Pavel signed, we also had to buy out three quality hockey players and three quality people in Darren McCarty, Ray Whitney and Derian Hatcher. That's the unfortunate thing of what this has done. It kind of handcuffed Detroit. We had a lot of money tied into a lot of players. Kenny had to step up and make some changes to free up some money. The transcript of the conference call can be found in the comment section of this post.

Nash Maturing

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Phil Coffey of NHL.com,

What Jarome Iginla, Martin Brodeur, Joe Sakic are to their respective teams and cities, Rick Nash is to the Columbus Blue Jackets. And Columbus President and GM Doug MacLean aims to keep it that way. So, that in a nutshell, is the reason MacLean stepped forward and signed his emerging power forward to a five-year contract this summer, a deal that will see Nash continue to develop and grow into one of the NHL's top stars. The pact means that emergence will happen in a Blue Jackets' uniform.
