Afinogenov Suffers Upper Body Injury

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

While the Buffalo Sabres were feeling the pain of their first regulation loss, Maxim Afinogenov was just in pain. Afinogenov, the Sabres' leading scorer, suffered what is believed to be a separated shoulder early in the first period Saturday night against Toronto. He could be out two to three weeks. Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said only that Afinogenov suffered an "upper body" injury and would be out "for a while." "Are we going to miss him? Damn right, you're going to miss him," Ruff said. "But it's somebody else's opportunity."

The Financial Side

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the News & Observer,

Winning the Stanley Cup last June didn't just put a smile on Karmanos' face. It put money in his pocket. After losses exceeding $145 million since he moved the team here from Hartford, Conn., in 1997, the Hurricanes turned a profit of about $10 million last season. The bottom line wasn't settled until Friday, when the NHL distributed last season's revenue-sharing money, but Karmanos isn't expecting chief financial officer Mike Amendola to send him a check this week. He just knows, for the first time, he won't have to write one.

Latest Forsberg Rumor- To Detroit

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Matts Wennerholm at the Sports Bladet,

Peter Forsberg is NHL's hotest players presently. But not on that way he desires. The rumours place him in masses of other NHL-klubba The hottest: To svenskklubben Detroit in exchange against the slope Mathieu Schneider. Now, I take all traderykten for what the is. Spekulationer. Foppa is presently facing in both Detroit, Vancouver and Calgary. Ottawas Daniel Alfredsson has in several days been on road to Kings, but the was denied strongly of the law buddies this night. On the other hand Peter Forsberg has almost never been involved in that type of rumours. He has always been “untouchable” - for important for its team to ever be changed away. The is he now also, but he never earlier has played in a team so desperate as Philadelphia. And the is not ahead the problems exists. The is backward. Therefore, a byte business with Detroit does not feel equally impossible, that about he may to submit Colorado during quantity small river clean. Detroit has the offensive slope Mathieu Schneider that is in same situation as Foppa - with a contract that goes out after this season and that since is free to go each he wants to. No impossible scenario Traden willed in that case also contain the defensive Swedish slope Andreas Lilja. The is no impossible scenario. And Foppa in Detroit - wow! I do not believe alone he willed have some towards such a byte business. Foppa, Zäta and be suffered in same law.
added 8:49am, via the Delco Times,
Speaking of Forsberg, a source out of Detroit told the Daily Times the Flyers are listening to trade offers for their captain. According to the source, the Red Wings have considerable interest and have had scouts at several Flyers games this season. As many as five NHL scouts were slated to be present for the Flyers game against the Washington Capitals Saturday, including a representative for the Red Wings. The source also said the Flyers have expressed interest in defensmen Mathieu Schneider and Andreas Lilja, although it wasn’t certain if they were being discussed in a deal for Forsberg.

Phoenix spotted the Kings a 3-1 lead in the first period, then scored the next five goals and won 6-4. That was the good news. The bad news is points leader Mike Comrie is expected to miss about a month because of a fractured right foot. Comrie, who suffered the injury Friday night against Anaheim yet finished that game, was scratched Saturday and is expected to have surgery either Monday or Tuesday.

The Tucker Style

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Toronto Star,

"You have to evolve with the game and I think I've adapted fairly well to the new rules and the way the game is being called now," Tucker explained. "I think Don Cherry said it well. When I play with a certain edge, that's when I play my best. I go out there and I play hard and I play with a tenacious effort. Sometimes that makes other people angry. I just go out and play. If there's a hit there to be had, I hit the guy. If there's not a hit, I don't hit. That's the way it goes."

Ottawa Interested In Morrison

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

Vancouver's Brendan Morrison just might be the right man to be the Senators' No. 2 centre. A league executive told the Sun yesterday that Canucks GM David Nonis "wouldn't mind" moving Morrison and his $3.2 million (all terms US) salary even if it's just to get some cap relief. Nonis will likely come out in the Vancouver media today and deny he's trying to move Morrison. But, you see, the Canucks are right up against the league's $44-million ceiling with a payroll of $43.124 million and that's left Nonis handcuffed if the club runs into injury problems.

NHLPA Ready To Talk Free Agency

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

...Funny, isn't it, that Nonis failed to mention he was able to trade for Roberto Luongo only because the goaltender would have qualified for 2007 accelerated free agency, but that must have slipped Nonis' mind. Even funnier is that when NHL GMs meet this week, the agenda will feature a discussion about changing salary arbitration. The union, which is believed amenable to amending the system, will agree to changes only in exchange for even more liberalized free agency. So the GMs can pick their poison. They can either lose core players through a salary-arbitration system that is incompatible with a hard-cap structure, or they can lose their players through free agency at the age of 25 or 26.

Mr. and Mrs. Hockey

Blog: KK Hockey By IwoCPO

Via the Halifax Daily News,

Gordie simply accepted whatever Wings general manager Jack Adams decided to offer, grossly underpaid as the league's best player and, even worse, unwittingly setting the financial standard by which every other NHL player was paid. Colleen changed that, and more as the architect of the family firm, Power Play International, negotiating hugely lucrative deals that included Howe's celebrated return to active play in l974 with sons Mark and Marty.

Warning- Flying Fish

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Vincent M. Mallozzi of the New York Times,

Harvard skates into Cornell’s house this week. In keeping with tradition, fish will be served. The fish are for tossing, not tasting. For more than 30 years, Cornell hockey fans have been hurling halibut at Harvard players before the start of The Game at Lynah Rink in Ithaca, N.Y. “Throwing fish is one way that Cornell fans get into the heads of the Harvard players,” said Jonathan Seibald, 25, a Cornell graduate who attends law school at Harvard.

Hot Stove Talk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

CBC Satellite Hot Stove talk tonight... • Scott Morrison stated in in order for San Jose to trade Nabokov to Phoenix, Jovanovski would be the player they would want in return. • Pierre Lebrun stated Paul Holmgren, the acting GM for the Flyers, had no idea Ed Snider had asked Colin Campbell to take over the GM postition. Also, teams have inquired about acquiring Forsberg. • Eric Duhatschek talked about a new type of playoff format that will discussed at the GM meeting in Toronto on Tuesday- The winner of 1-8 would play the winner of the 4-5 first round series, 2-7 would play the 3-6 winner. By knowing they would be facing 1 of 2 teams, GMs feel their team can better prepare for those teams.
