Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,
• He’d never admit it - but I’m going to bet the ovation Gary Bettman received in Winnipeg was the best feeling he’s had since becoming commissioner. He may put five more teams in Manitoba.
• Nashville and Shea Weber took some time off after a difficult summer and haven’t begun negotiations on a new contract. Then again, Weber still has another year before becoming a UFA. Ryan Suter and Pekka Rinne, however, are more urgent cases, because their freedom looms July 1. Talks have started with both players, but are early. Toughest thing for the Predators: they might be the two best free agents available this summer.
• One Senator on the Red Wings: “They should be called the Detroit Vultures. You make a mistake and they pick you apart.”
