Ticket Shock

from Terry Frei at ESPN,

This year, when NHL teams informed season-ticket holders about the terms of their potential renewals for the 2008-09 season, the letters often broke news of price increases—but with so much spin control between the lines, fans could get dizzy as they read.

Granted, ticket-price increases are right up there on the shock meter with another young movie star entering rehab.

But wasn’t it supposed to be different under the salary-cap system that commissioner Gary Bettman and league owners shut down the league for a year to get? Citing the outrageous ticket prices, didn’t the league at least imply that it also was fighting for the fans, too, as it took on the NHLPA?

Old Names, New Places

from Loose Change of the Hockey News,

Kudos to the New York Islanders who now have a Doug Weight, a lightweight (Mike Comrie) and some dead weight (Mike Sillinger).

Exceptional work by the Vancouver Canucks in signing Jason Krog who is, by far, my favourite Muppet.

Radim Vrbata, Gary Roberts, Brandon Bochenski and Mark Recchi? Who says the people in Tampa don’t recycle?

Grimson Looking For Work In Nashville

from John Glennon of the Tennessean,

One of the Predators’ most pugnacious former players is looking forward to returning to the team in a far more peaceful role this season.

Stu Grimson, whose fighting prowess earned him “The Grim Reaper’’ nickname, has recently returned to Nashville, where he will be continuing his law career. He’s also discussing a part-time role with the Predators, one that would have the personable Grimson involved with the community.

Respectful Debate

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,

...I’d like to focus on the politics of hockey itself – and specifically, the oft-repeated criticisms of people who enjoy debating the pros and cons of all aspects of the game.

Said criticisms usually come in the form of the following argument: “The game is great as it is. We’ve already made enough changes to it, so why can’t people just enjoy it and leave it be?”

On some levels, I understand and agree with that sentiment. But I also believe there’s an inherent, significant danger to the notion of being satisfied with the status quo.

“I’ll be honest with you, I’m out of my mind already because I’m not preparing the team,” he said Thursday. “That’s all I know how to do. That’s all I want to do is prepare a hockey team. It’s tough now that I’m not doing that.”

A Night For Trevor Linden

from the Vancouver Canucks,

“Retiring a player’s sweater is one of the highest honours a club can pay to its most elite players and ambassadors,” said Chris Zimmerman, President and CEO, Canucks Sports & Entertainment. “Trevor embodies the qualities we strive for as an organization; character, hard working, commitment, generous and loyal. We are proud that his sweater will hang beside Stan Smyl’s at General Motors Place.”

“This is a tremendous honour and I am very grateful to the club,” said Linden. “To be drafted by the Canucks organization 20 years ago as an 18 year old and to now have my sweater retired is very humbling and rewarding.”
