Kukla's Korner Hockey

Longtime ESPN analyst Darren Pang is the likely choice to replace Simmer on the TV side. A source familiar with the negotiations said it’s a done deal. Pang wouldn’t go that far, but said during a phone interview, "You’re hot on an accurate trail." The contract is reportedly for three years. Pang, a former NHL goalie, became available in May when ESPN declined to pick up a $60 million option it held for the 2005-06 season, leaving Pang without a network. Pang brings accomplished credentials to the Coyotes, including working for ESPN since 1993. He is a longtime friend of managing partner Wayne Gretzky and is often referred to as "the best in the business."
