We Wait

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Spector checks in at KK,

It’s obvious the reason why it’s so quiet in the opening hour and change thus far is, as the TSN crew pointed out, the top UFAs are getting lots of offers and they’re taking their time sorting through them.

Once the main guys make up their minds (and I expect that to start happening by 2 PM ET), the logjam will be broken and the signings will come fast and furious, because the ultimate destination of the main guys will have those teams that lost out in the bidding for them turning to their “Plan B” players.

Just my two cents while we wait. This is as bad as my military days…“hurry up and wait”.

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From TSN,

The first hour of unrestricted free agency in the NHL didn’t bring any blockbuster deals, but The Hockey News reports the Calgary Flames are on the verge of giving captain Jarome Iginla a long-term contract extension.
Multiple sources have confirmed that later Sunday or Monday, the Flames will announce they have reached an agreement with Iginla on either a four-or five-year contract extension. Depending on the length of the deal, it would keep Iginla in Calgary through the 2011-12 season or the 2012-13 season.

Jay Onrait Entertains

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

TSN’s Jay Onrait is doing the liveblog thing again today, if you’re interested…

12:46 - A reader named Jeff Lush asks: “Does the TSN Brass realize the risk of having these free agent/trade deadline shows? What happens if nobody signs today?” I’m sure they’re not that concerned. What else were you planning on watching today, the U.S. Women’s Open? Boo-yah! Take that Lorena Ochoa!
