Forbes: Wild’s minority owner dinged for $18 million by SEC

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

Update: Wrong blog. Oh well.

Ouch. Forbes Michael Ozanian reports that the Minnesota Wild's minority owner ran afoul of the Securities and Exchanges Commission, and as such, he got dinged with a fine larger than Ryan Suter's signing bonus:

Billionaire Philip Falcone will not have to go to the penalty box, but he and his hedge fund, Harbinger Capital Partners, will pay $18 million to settle SEC charges over Falcone’s use of firm money and other accusations, regulators said Monday.

SEC: “Falcone and Harbinger engaged in serious misconduct that harmed investors, and their admissions leave no doubt that they violated the federal securities laws,” said Andrew Ceresney, co-director of the SEC’s enforcement division. “Falcone must now pay a heavy price for his misconduct by surrendering millions of dollars and being barred from the hedge fund industry.”

What Happens To These UFAs

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated,

... here’s a look at some of the key names out there and what might lie ahead for each.

Ron Hainsey

There are whispers that his role as an NHLPA mouthpiece during the lockout has led to the 32-year-old defender being blackballed. Take a look at where Chris Campoli’s principled stand landed him and you can see that there just might be something to it. The bigger issue, though, might be what Hainsey brings to the table — and judging by the line of Jets fans who were willing to drive him to the airport when his last contract expired, that might not be much...

Brad Boyes

Boyes hoped that by signing a one-year, $1 million deal with the Isles last summer, he’d prove that he still had plenty to offer in the NHL. Honestly, he did his part, tallying 35 points in 48 games while riding shotgun with John Tavares and Matt Moulson....

"My point is, if they're better than I am, I am expecting and accepting a smaller role." But if I'm better, I need to play more. I need to play top minutes. That's what I'm looking for.

"That's fair for everybody. To be honest, I've been playing a big role. I don't know if I'm ready to play 10-12 minutes a game. And that's what I want to make sure. If I play well, I get what I deserve. Sometimes it's not like that. So I want to make sure I'm treated the way I deserve."

-Teemu Selanne on one of the factors he is weighing before deciding if he will return for another season.  More at TSN.

Hal Gill Looking For Work

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail,

Four years ago, Gill skated in 20 minutes a night on the Pittsburgh Penguins team that won the Stanley Cup.

In July, however, the 6-foot-7 defenceman was bought out of the final year of his $2-million a season contract by the Nashville Predators, a move that came as a shock to a veteran that was anxious to rebound from an injury plagued 2013 season.

Now, he is one of a few dozen notable unrestricted free agents that have yet to sign with a new team, a huge group put out of work in part due to the salary cap dropping for the first time and by nearly $6-million.

“I thought it would have been a good fit to play with [Preds super prospect] Seth Jones and help him out so I was surprised,” Gill said on Monday as he took part in the annual BioSteel Pro Hockey camp in Toronto. “But that’s the nature of the business. You’re not always on the same plan as everyone else. It’s something that hopefully in the end will work out for the best.”

The problem for players like Gill is, as mentioned, this is one summer when they have a lot of company on the unemployment line.

Red Wings overnight report: on the MSU pro camp, Lashoff, alumni game news and memorials

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

Monday was super busy from an "its summer news-wise" perspective, mostly because the second-to-last week in August usually marks the first time that NHL'ers take to the ice. Whether it was Daniel Alfredsson pissing people off in Ottawa (tip for "Alfie": there is nothing you can do that WON'T piss Ottawans off other than hauling tail to Metro Detroit) or Justin Abdelkader, Drew Miller, Jakub Kindl and a pair of former Wings in Valtteri Filppula and Daniel Cleary at Michigan State University's pro camp.

Michigan Hockey's Nick Barnowski spoke with Filppula about his new start in Tampa Bay, and he also spoke with Miller and Abdelkader about kicking off the on-ice portion of their off-season training regimen at their alma mater:
