Tuesday Evening Thoughts On Hockey

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet,

- I had an interesting conversation with an agent last weekend.

Thinking about all of the players being discussed in trade rumours around the league, he asked, “How many untouchable players do you think there really are? I mean players who absolutely would not be traded?” I said 20.

His reply: “I don’t think there are that many.”

He might be right. That’s why I don’t think it’s impossible Erik Karlsson gets traded. Maybe no one wants to pay Ottawa’s price, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t discussed. Ottawa’s front office will consider every option, as it should.

- At times, the Red Wings have shown an inclination to move Gustav Nyquist or Tomas Tatar, but not both.

We’ll see where it goes, but while Nashville has shown interest in Tatar, there may be others who like Nyqvist better because he’s got one year remaining as opposed to Tatar’s two.

Nyquist controls more of his future at this time with a no-trade, while Tatar’s doesn’t kick in until July 1.

- Some of the scouts/reporters who were watching Los Angeles at Buffalo last weekend said they haven’t seen a general manager all year as upset as Jason Botterill was during that game.

Time To Find Out If Seattle Fans Will Invest In The NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John McGrth of the Seattle New Tribune,

Are there enough hockey fans in the Puget Sound region to bring an NHL franchise to Seattle?

My guess is yes, but it’s just that, a guess. A season-ticket drive for the Seattle Wannabees, to be launched March 1, will reveal numbers providing a more sophisticated judgment.

The season-ticket drive is similar to a major food or beverage company testing a new brand. Do you like the taste? Do you like the taste to the point you will go to the store and buy the new brand?

Absent the kind of national television contracts that keep the three other major pro sports leagues swimming in money, box-office revenues are the lifeblood of the NHL. The league wants assurance that hockey fans will flock to a renovated KeyArena 41 times a season.

Wait And Watch

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Kate from PA now in SC-made in Detroit

Today we dealt Petr Mrazek to the Flyers. It's been said he wanted oot, and, now he gets his wish. I wish him well.

The rumors are flying aboot other players being moved to teams that will actually have a shot of going deep into the playoffs, and, Holland has to make the moves in order to keep our future together.

After all the trade dust has settled, will we see Tick-Tock as being successful at his job? Who gets moved next?

Wait and watch.

Meanwhile we have a game to watch.
