Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Capitals Insider,

Goaltender Olie Kolzig went down with what appeared to be a groin injury during today’s practice at Kettler Capitals Iceplex. The extent of the injury was not immediately known. But I can safely say that it didn’t look good.

Sellers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from The Spin, the blog of Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

So much for the concern that there would be next to little action before the Feb. 27 NHL trade deadline.
So much for the concern the salary cap would be too much of an impediment to activity, and that there wouldn’t be enough obvious sellers because of the closeness of the conference races.
So much for the worry that moving the trade deadline back to late February would suffocate the market.

Live From London

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from E.J. Hradek at ESPN,

The NFL isn’t the only North American pro sports league that will play a regular-season game in London during the 2007-08 season. The buzz around the rinks is the NHL is preparing to do the same.
According to multiple sources, the Los Angeles Kings will open next season with a pair of games at The O2 in London. The O2 is a state-of-the-art arena scheduled to open with a series of Justin Timberlake concerts in early July. It is operated by Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG), which also owns the Kings.
L.A. will open its London swing with an exhibition contest before the two regular-season games. The Ducks and Canucks are two teams believed to be in the running to accompany the Kings to Great Britain.

Going To The Dogs

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Tennessean,

Martin Erat won’t say how much he paid for his dog, Max, but suffice to say, it’s best to avoid getting into a bidding war with the Preds winger — especially when there is a puppy and a charity auction involved.
It was three years ago at the Predators’ annual fundraising gala that Erat and his girlfriend fell in love with the black lab up for auction. He’d wanted a dog a long time, and this one had him hooked.

Wake-Up Call

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Calgary Sun,

“The hardest thing about that is the whole reason I signed the extension and gave up my free agency was to stay at home and play for Calgary,” said Ference. “To go from that and having a lot of trust in the deal ... it’s definitely a huge glass of cold water in the face of anybody that thinks it’s not all about the business, really.
“It’s definitely a wakeup call. There’s no loyalty when it comes to stuff like that.”
Ference says the hardest part will be leaving all the good friends he’s made on the team behind but still plans to return to the Rockies every summer. At least he gets to bring a friend with him in Kobasew and reunite with a “fired-up” Shean Donovan.

added 7:56am, also from the Calgary Sun,

A dismantling in Detroit aside, Darryl Sutter is convinced his squad is now good enough to win the Stanley Cup.
It better be, because he said he’s done dealing.
“From a management and pro scouting standpoint, we’ve certainly given them every opportunity to be successful,” said the Flames GM yesterday of a team that got deeper late Saturday with his second sizeable deal of the fortnight.

Be Prepared To Pay

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

League sources say if Senators GM John Muckler is going to pull off a trade at the Feb. 27 deadline, he’d better be prepared to pay a premium.
An NHL executive told the Sun yesterday that with only a couple of teams all but eliminated from playoff contention, the number of GMs trying to improve their clubs could be as competitive as the post-season races themselves.
It’s believed the Senators are targeting Panthers winger Gary Roberts, who would provide Ottawa with a wealth of veteran leadership.

JD Will ‘Do What’s Right’ for Blues

Blog: KK Hockey By George Malik

“We have to do what’s right by the end of February,” Davidson said. “When you have assets, you want to retain your assets. We’re in the mode of assessing all of that. We’re taking phone calls. We have people that other teams are interested in. The only thing that’s changed is that as it gets closer to the end of the month, you get more phone calls. We’re going to explore everything and try to make the right decisions for our team long-term.”
The Blues have had preliminary discussions with agent Don Meehan about a contract extension for Brewer. Meanwhile, the strong bet is that Tkachuk will be dealt before the deadline, as he himself admitted recently.
