Biron Waiting

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Pierre LeBrun of the CP via Slam,

In the meantime Biron finds himself reading up on the daily NHL transactions and trying to figure out what it means for him. "Yes, definitely, and for two reasons," he said while en route with his family from Buffalo to his native Quebec City. "First, because I'm in the middle of it. But two because I'm just a big hockey fan and I want to know where everybody is going. It was interesting to see Marc Denis go to Tampa and Dan Cloutier yesterday to go Los Angeles." Interesting because it eliminated two more spots for Biron. There are still openings out there. Detroit remains without a No. 1 goalie although they had veteran Ed Belfour in town Wednesday for a physical. Florida is also looking for a goalie to push Alex Auld. And the St. Louis Blues are beating the bushes as well, wanting some help for Curtis Sanford.

Addressing The Shanahan Rumors

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Everyone and his brother has Shanny going to numerous teams. The latest talk, which was bogus, was Shanny was about to sign a $9.8 million, 2 year contract with Boston. Montreal media is reporting Shanahan is about to re-sign with the Wings. Other reports had him in LA talking to the Kings on the 4th of July. Leafs media sources are begging for the Leafs to sign him, he would be good in the lockerroom. My suggestion, wait and let it play out. added 3:30pm, I forgot one... Someone claimed they walked by the Madision Square Garden marquee last night and swears they saw "Welcome Brendan Shanahan" in lights! You see folks, rumors can fly like mad...

Every Team Has A Chance

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Nashville City Paper,

The goal has always been for the Nashville Predators to hoist a Stanley Cup, but watching the Carolina Hurricanes skate to NHL supremacy this season made general manager David Poile even more anxious to win a title. “They are in a non-traditional hockey market where people said they wouldn’t make it,” Poile said. “When you saw the stands, their fans didn’t sit down for one minute of the final game. There is a lot more parity than there has been in the league before. An eighth-place team, Edmonton, that made the playoffs on the last day arguably came within one goal of the Stanley Cup. We all feel we have a chance.”

The former assistant GM, who will go back to being an assistant when Peter Chiarelli takes over on July 15, has made Boston one of the more active teams in the NHL offseason so far, signing defenseman Zdeno Chara and forward Marc Savard as free agents. "You can tell that the organization is committed to winning because of these signings," new coach Dave Lewis said yesterday at a news conference to introduce Chara. "Players now want to come here. So there's something going on."
