KK- In Alert Mode

Many emails have streamed in from KK readers, asking about our trade deadline plans.

Our plans are the same as always, giving you the hockey news when it happens. 

You can review our work from last year on Februay 27, 2007 to get an idea on how we will present the news to you.

Also, I am sure the KK Chatroom will be active during trade deadline day too.

Did Gainey Find His Impact Player

from Jay Onrait of TSN,

Now Gainey is faced with a truly difficult decision and less than a week to make it.

If Ryder was the cog that would lead Montreal to land a world-class talent like Marian Hossa, it would be difficult for Gainey not to pull the trigger.

However, if a Ryder-for-Alex Tanguay deal was on the table, would it really make sense for Gainey to pull off such a deal with Flames GM Darryl Sutter? It’s hard to believe that whatever added offense Tanguay would provide, if any, would offset Ryder’s locker room presence. Not to mention the fact that the Newfoundland native appears to have re-discovered his scoring touch.

Columbus Attempting To Keep Foote

from the Columbus Dispatch,

Howson met with defenseman Adam Foote’s agent, Rick Curran, on Sunday, their first talks toward getting Foote signed to a contract extension.

They’ll have further talks later this week.

It’s believed the two sides are discussing a two-year contract worth between $3 million and $4 million per season.

The Facebook Trade

from Behind the Jersey,

Like most college students, I am a Facebook user. So when a friend told me that a legit looking Valtteri Filppula profile updated his status with “traded to Atlanta…”, I had to take a look myself. It is probably the most legit looking hockey player Facebook profile I’ve seen, but that still doesn’t mean I believe it.

Antropov A Wanted Man

from the Toronto Sun,

With defenceman Tomas Kaberle insisting he is not going anywhere, echoing the same sentiments as the other four members of the Maple Leafs “no-trade clause” fraternity, Antropov might very well be the most legitimate candidate to be moved by the Feb. 26 trade deadline.

In the prime of his career at age 28, Antropov’s value never has been higher. He’s managed to stickhandle his way around the injury bug for a change while reaching a career-high 21 goals, attractive traits for teams in the market for a hulking power forward.

All Talk - No Action

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

As NHL GMs wrapped up their meeting yesterday, Atlanta’s Don Waddell and San Jose’s Doug Wilson wandered off into a field for a discussion. The talk is Wilson has stepped up attempts to acquire RW Marian Hossa by offering C Patrick Marleau as part of a package.

Not far away on the patio at the Ritz Carlton Golf Resort, Colorado’s Francois Giguere and Toronto’s Cliff Fletcher held a brief conversation with the Avs trying to buy. Philadelphia’s Paul Holmgren stopped to chat with Edmonton’s Kevin Lowe.

What Happened?

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

When the season is over, when the final tallies are counted and the standings are established, no one will differentiate between good points and bad points.

Know this, however - the term, “loser’s point” was made for last night’s Rangers hockey team that conspired to blow a 5-0 second-period lead on their way to an astonishing 6-5 shootout defeat to the Canadiens.

Down By Five, Canadiens Win

from Dave Stubbs at Habs Inside/Out,

Incredible. Impossible. Unbelievable.

The Canadiens scored five straight goals tonight to rally from a 5-0 deficit, then got a goal from Saku Koivu in the shootout and Cristobal Huet stopped all three himself, giving Montreal a 6-5 victory over the New York Rangers.

continued and at times, the sight is loading a little slow, probably being flooded by Habs fans…

The first time in the Canadiens history that they have had a comeback win after being down by five goals.

Want One?

Never saw these before, and probably would not want to, but a KK reader passed it on to me and I thought maybe I was just too old to appreciate these NHL fitted hats...
