Refs Remain Consistent

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the LA Times (reg. req.),

Defenseman Keith Carney said he thinks the referees intend to remain consistent with their approach in eliminating hooking and holding to impede a skater's progress. "In past years, usually by this time of the year it's really slacked off and they let things go a little bit," Carney said. "This year, they made a plan and said, 'This is the way it's going to be.' "

Bettman Dreamed Of Nights Like This

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Bertuzzi Rumor Denied

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Courier Post,

The latest trade rumor involving the Flyers has goaltender Robert Esche and perhaps Donald Brashear heading to Vancouver for Canucks hulking winger Todd Bertuzzi. Bertuzzi's agent, Pat Morris, could not be reached for comment on Friday, but his partner, Don Meehan, said he was not aware of such a deal. "I can tell you on the record I haven't heard a thing like that," Meehan said. "Not a word."

Best Move This Year

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun via Slam,

Regardless of what happens between now and Thursday's trading deadline, it says here Darryl Sutter has already sewn up GM of the year honours. In what first appeared to be a relatively insignificant deal involving a minor-league tough guy for a veteran defenceman, Sutter brought to Calgary one of the biggest talents the city has ever seen.

Good Decision

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Philadelphia Inquirer,

With 1 minute, 53 seconds remaining in the third period and the game long decided, the rugged winger (Brashear) attacked Kasparaitis, who refused to drop his gloves. For the incident, Brashear was given 29 minutes in penalties and the automatic suspension. "It was perfect the way they responded to me, with Brashear going after me on every shift," said Kasparaitis, who anticipated the Flyers would want to settle a score for taking out Gagne. "I'm not fighting Brashear. That's not my game. I'll get beat up."

Report- Edmonton After Belfour, Not Joseph

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Toronto Star,

Don't be surprised if the Edmonton Oilers take a serious run at Maple Leafs goalie Ed Belfour before next Thursday's trade deadline. With his team's playoff fortunes sinking fast, largely because of sub-par goaltending, Oilers GM Kevin Lowe is under considerable pressure to get a proven NHL stopper and there is speculation that he has Belfour, not the much-speculated Curtis Joseph, in his sights.

Tkachuk Won’t Waive No Trade Clause

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Edmonton Sun,

He's always been a regular-season force, closing in on 1,000 points, but Tkachuk's teams have never gone far in the playoffs, bowing out in the first round nine of 11 times. He's only made it as far as the third round once. He doesn't want to be the Dan Marino of the NHL, but knows he's running out of time. "I want to win,'' he said. "It's very difficult to win, there's a lot of guys who haven't, but there's no question in my mind I want to win a Stanley Cup. "It doesn't look like it's going to happen this year because I'm not waiving my no trade, and if it doesn't happen ever, it's not from a lack of trying. Hopefully I have about three more years left and we'll see what happens.''

Yotes Not Active & Wings Invade Phoenix

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Arizona Republic,

The trade deadline is Thursday, but Gretzky said he doesn't expect any major deals around the league until Tuesday at the earliest. Gretzky also said the Coyotes aren't being very active. "At this point in time, we're still mostly answering calls rather than making calls," Gretzky said.
Also from the same article,
Tonight's game at Glendale Arena is sold out, which is not surprising considering the opponent is the Detroit Red Wings. Valley hockey fans typically come out en masse when the Red Wings play here and neutralize Phoenix's home-ice advantage.
