Evening Line Part 2- Tom Dundon On Don Cherry

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

“I enjoyed it, I think he’s interesting. I like the fact that he has an opinion

“What I try to do, when you hear that, is I try to look at and think do I agree? Is there something malicious, is there something that is treating other people the wrong way when you do it? It never crossed my mind that it was disrespectful in any way. Now that I’ve thought it through I just disagree with him. I don’t think it has anything to do with anybody else but us.

“The fact he brought some attention to us and probably made it better for us, I appreciate what he did.”

“I don’t want an apology, he can say what he wants to say. I should thank him. It was good for us.”

-Tom Dundon, owner of the Carolina Hurricanes, via Chip Alexander of the New & Observer.

Don Cherry On The Carolina Hurricanes T-shirts

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP at CBC,

Don Cherry doesn't think the Carolina Hurricanes are very funny. But he admits their shirts are.

The TV hockey commentator called the Hurricanes a "bunch of jerks" on Saturday night when sharply criticizing their elaborate post-game celebrations at PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C. The next day the team started selling a shirt with the phrase emblazoned across the chest, proudly declaring in a tweet on Sunday that "the jerk store is open."

"I don't mind it, if they want to have fun with it," said Cherry with a laugh. "I'm sure some of the players are embarrassed but when the owner [Thomas Dundon] says 'be more entertaining,' I guess that's what they call entertaining."...

"We in Canada, at least most of the people I know in Canada, revere the game. I don't think there's any secret there," said Cherry. "I guess I'm the only guy who said it, but that's why I said it. I mean it, I mean every word.

Handling And Addressing The Trade Talk

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

from Dana Wakiji of DetroitRedWings.com,

On Saturday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston said on Hockey Night in Canada that the Wings had asked Nyquist if he had a list of teams for which he would consider waiving his no-trade clause.

"Maybe the deadlines you've been through, but this is a little different for me with this being the last year of my contract, going into unrestricted free agency," Nyquist said. "So it's a little different for me this year but it's part of the business. It happens to everyone."

Nyquist declined to say if he had offered the Wings any teams he'd be willing to go to.

When Nyquist missed Sunday's game against Philadelphia due to illness, some people believed that a trade was in the works. But Nyquist was, in fact, ill, missing his first game of the season and first since the 2016-17 season.

Wings coach Jeff Blashill is cognizant that this issue could be weighing on players like Nyquist as Monday's 3 p.m. deadline looms.

Sell If You Can

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

from Pat Caputo of The Oakland Press,

The NHL trade deadline points directly at the Red Wings’ problems.

They are near the bottom of the standings, rebuilding and have plenty of veteran players.

Theoretically, it should be time to sell by Monday.

But aging veterans on indisputably overvalued contracts are impossible to move.

Justin Abdelkader, for example, has four seasons remaining on his contact after this season. The Red Wings will reportedly take a $4.25 million cap hit annually because of it. He will be 35 when the term expires. Abdelkader has five goals, 10 assists and is minus 11 in 60 games. His Corsi puck possession stat at even strength is 46.7 (50 is the breakeven point).

Frans Nielsen has nine goals in 55 games. His cap hit reportedly is $5.25 million the next three years. He is 34.

Oh, then there’s Jonathan Ericsson and Darren Helm. They only have one year left after this one. So a bargain, right? Ah, no.
