Fedor Fedorov Plans To Play In The NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

Fedor Fedorov made it clear this morning that he didn’t sign with the Devils to play in Lowell this season. “That’s the only reason I’m here,” he said. “(Otherwise) there’s no point in me being here.”

Fedorov, 27, said he signed a one-way deal, meaning he’ll receive the same salary even if he’s in the AHL. It’s a one-year contract for $500,000.

Fedorov, the younger brother of Capitals center Sergei Fedorov, also stated firmly that the he is no longer under contract with Moscow Dynamo, the Russian team he played for last season, and doesn’t understand why he’s been suspended from international play by the International Ice Hockey Federation.

New Traditions

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From the Detroit Free Press:

Representatives from the National Hockey League, the Chicago Cubs, the Chicago Blackhawks, the Detroit Red Wings and the National Hockey Players’ Association gathered this morning atop the third-base dugout of Wrigley Field, the Cubs’ historic home, to talk about the upcoming NHL Winter Classic 2009. They were joined by Blackhawks Hall of Famers Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita and Tony Esposito, along with the exciting young Chicago forward tandem of Pat Kane and Jonathan Toews.

The 701st all-time meeting of the clubs – no NHL opponents have played more regular-season games against each other – will begin at the memorably unique venue at 1 p.m. on Jan. 1.

“The NHL is delighted to bring its most historic rivalry to one of the most historic venues in sports,” said NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. “We thank Rocky Wirtz and John McDonough for their vision. We thank Mike Ilitch and the Red Wings for their cooperation. We also thank the entire Cubs organization and Mayor Daley, in advance, for the warm welcome we know the City of Chicago will extend to our newest tradition.”

Yankee Stadium for 2010?

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Stan Fischler at Game On,

While Yankee Stadium would appear to be a sure thing for the NHL’s 2010 outdoor game, much will depend on how well the 2009 Wrigley Field (Chicago-Detroit) Classic draws at the gate and on TV. Another hang-up could be negotiations with the Yankees over use of their new ballpark because it won’t be cheap.

Another battle will be over choice of the Rangers’ opponent. Guaranteed, the Islanders and Devils will fight hard to get into the act.

We’ve got one guy in Atlanta saying McCrimmon’s been hired.  A guy in Michigan agreeing.  Another guy in Atlanta confirming.  And a bunch of Diggers in Detroit riding the fence.

Ho frigging hum.
