Does Boston Want Aaron Ward Back?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,

To hear those close to defenseman Aaron Ward tell it, the popular ex-Bruin wants back into Boston in a big, big way.

The 37-year-old defenseman and famed dressing room pontificator is downright miserable in Carolina with the down-and-out Hurricanes, and experienced his own personal Waterloo when he was placed on waivers by the Canes back on Dec. 14….

The only thing Ward would admit to CSNNE.com is that he’s decided he wants to play at least one more season next winter, and that Boston would be at the top of his NHL destinations if there’s mutual interest from B’s GM Peter Chiarelli.

San Jose, Detroit and Philly are also likely to be on Ward’s wish list of potential teams now that the carnage in Carolina has taken on that old hockey team smell, but Ward never wanted to leave Boston in the first place.

Report- Update On The Tampa Situation

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ken Campbell of The Hockey News,

Sources say the sale of the Tampa Bay Lightning to Boston-based hedge fund manager Jeffrey Vinik is all but complete and could be official as early as Saturday or Sunday.

In fact, it’s believed that Vinik has already agreed to cover the Lightning’s payroll, which is due Feb. 15, as part of a deal that will be signed in the coming days….

It’s unclear whether Lightning governor and CEO Oren Koules of the OK Hockey Group will have any stake in the team, but it appears as though co-owner Len Barrie, who is experiencing troubles of his own with his Great Bear Resort near Victoria, B.C., will no longer be part of the ownership group….

Sources say there was a deal in place last June to trade Lecavalier to the Montreal Canadiens for goalie Carey Price, center Tomas Plekanec and a prospect, but the deal was blocked by Bettman after Barrie refused to approve the deal.

Ducks Close To Extending Hiller

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

The Anaheim Ducks are very close to signing Jonas Hiller to a contract extension, a source told ESPN.com Saturday, taking a top-flight netminder off next summer’s free-agent market.

The 27-year-old Hiller, who will start in goal for Switzerland next month at the Olympics, was slated to become an unrestricted free agent July 1.

update 12:43pm, Same link as above but some number are now included-

The deal is worth $18 million, the source said. The $4.5 million average salary is well above the $1.3 million Hiller is earning this year.

added 1:00pm,

“Jonas has proved himself as a starting NHL goaltender,” said Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray. “We expect him to only get better and are pleased he’s committed to us for four more seasons.”

“This is a very exciting day for me personally,” said Hiller. “Anaheim has been a great place for me to play, and I couldn’t be happier to stay here.”

Kovalchuk Shows CBA Works

Blog: The Puck Stops Here By PuckStopsHere

Nearly a week ago, Ken Campbell of the Hockey News wrote an article titled Kovalchuk Saga Shows Lockout Was A Farce.  Hos premise is that the purpose of the lockout was to keep players with their current team, when the opposite is clearly the case.

The two major changes that were made during the lockout were a salary cap and a reduction in free agency ages.  Both of which are moves that are going to increase player turnover.  A salary cap will force teams to part with players that they otherwise would not want to part with in order to stay below the cap.  Lower free agency ages will allow players the chance to leave a team on their own volition at an earlier age as well.  The idea that a CBA designed to increase player movement can be judged as a failure because it lead to Kovalchuk’s likely departure from Atlanta is totally misguided.

Happy 60th Anniversary To A Most Amazing Couple

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By VooX

A2Y is first and foremost a Red Wings blog.

I try not to discuss my personal life in blog posts.  I don’t want to tell you about my family life, love life, and the like, as A2Y is not the forum to do so.  The 19 come here to forget about the real world and join their imaginary friends in some Red Wings talk.

Today I’d like to make an exception, so please forgive my indulgence, and my lack of posts.  At least until later tonight or tomorrow when we return to the regularly scheduled sarcasm.

60 years ago, on January 28, 1950, the two most wonderful people I have ever met got married.
