Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,
- I asked a couple of capologists what they think a 90-cent Canadian dollar (or lower) will do to next year's cap ceiling. Both said it's not insignificant. One predicted it could drop the total by $1 million, while the other said he ran a model that put it closer to $1.5 million. Something to keep an eye on.
- I heard from a couple of different places that Erik Cole wanted to move on from Dallas. But I got a strong, forceful denial from agent Steve Bartlett.
- Another name that popped up last week was Derek Morris, which makes sense on its face because a) he's eligible for unrestricted free agency and b) Phoenix is trying to shed defencemen to make room for scoring help. Here's the problem, though. As long as the Coyotes feel they're in it, moving Morris could leave Zbynek Michalek as their only veteran right-handed defenceman. And Michalek's been banged up a bit.
- At the end of the day, it sounds like the only other teams that made serious pitches for del Zotto were the Ottawa Senators and Toronto.
