How About Koivu For Jokinen

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ken Campbell of the Hockey News,

Gainey is also believed not to be adverse to trading team captain Saku Koivu, who has only 12 goals this season, is a minus player and could probably use a change of scenery. But Koivu is four years older than Jokinen and far less productive, so Gainey would have to enhance the offer.

Perhaps a package of Koivu, Jaroslav Halak, a first-round pick and a prospect would be enough. Gainey could also include Alexander Perezhogin, who is having a fine season in Russia this year, but whose contract rights are still owned by the Canadiens.

Naslund Tweaks Groin

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Vancouver Province,

Markus Naslund has a groin injury and is doubtful for Saturday’s game against Detroit.

Naslund missed Friday’s practice after tweaking his groin in Thursday’s win against Nashville. If he can’t play, Taylor Pyatt will move up to the top line.

“I think he’s been getting treatments for it but it got progressively tighter here,” Canucks head coach Alain Vigneault said.

Maybe, Maybe Not For Wings Trade

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TSN,

Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland says he’s prepared to make a big deal, but the price will have to be right.

“Would we like to do a big move? Sure, I think everybody would like to do a big move,” Holland told TSN. “But at what cost?”

Holland said it’s a matter of risk and reward.

“Last year we brought in Todd Bertuzzi and paid a fairly significant price in Shawn Matthias, a real good prospect,” Holland said. “I don’t know if we are prepared to do that every year.

“We might do that this year, we might not. We’ll see in the next four days.”

Sundin Has Not Waived His NTC

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Cliff Fletcher is on 640am in Toronto and says he talked to Sundin’s agent today, J.P. Barry and mentioned he is just waiting for a response back from him.

He did say Mats has not waived his NTC and talk is pretty slow right now around the league.  Fletcher has other issues to deal with and will try to work on those.

If You Can’t Find An Implosion…

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Well, well, well…when your team has no chance of making the playoffs, set your sights on the Wings.  That’s the MO of Blues apologist and Klessel groupie Andy Strickland.  Last year it was his prediction that the Wing room would “implode by Christmas.”

Now? Well now his “sources” are telling him Nick Lidstrom is going to be out longer than announced. Much longer.

Can Ovechkin Be Gretzky

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from ESPN,

Editor’s note: In our “Friday Face off,” ESPN.com NHL writer Scott Burnside (based in Atlanta) and Toronto Star columnist and frequent ESPN.com contributor Damien Cox (based in Toronto) duke it out over any given hockey topic. Let the games begin!

This week’s topic: Is Alexander Ovechkin poised to be the new Gretzky, the player all the others will be chasing for years to come when it comes to goals?...

Scott: We often hear people bemoan the lack of a dynastic team, a team that captures the imagination of the hockey world. Do you think a single player can have that effect? We all know Crosby has proved himself to be special early on, but his high ankle sprain is going to cost him back-to-back MVP awards and league scoring titles. But if Ovechkin got to 60 or 65, do you think that would be some sort of catalyst to great excitement that transcends the normal?

Damien: Nope. Not while he’s in Washington. I know that won’t make the millions of Capitals fans across the world happy, or owner Ted Leonsis, or GM George McPhee, but the fact is, having Ovechkin not only in D.C. but in the Southeast Division just isn’t going to afford him the profile he deserves. At least not in the near future.

How Close Is The Playoff Race

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from NHL.com,

NEW YORK—With four days remaining until the NHL trade deadline Tuesday at 3 p.m., ET, League-wide competition is as tight as ever. The 2007-08 regular season passed the three-quarter pole Thursday with 25 clubs within seven points of a berth in the Stanley Cup playoffs, four clubs more than last season at this stage. At the three-quarter mark of the 2003-04 season, just 19 clubs were in such contention.

In addition, 17 clubs are within seven points of a division lead and five of six division leaders are in front by four points or fewer.
