Some Win, Some Lose

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun choses the winners and losers during the off-season....

TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING With Brad Richards, Vinny Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis chewing up almost half of the $44-million US cap, the Lightning's roster is undeniably top heavy, creating questions about depth. The departures of Kubina and ex-Leaf Fredrik Modin will sting, but at least Tampa should be more stable in goal with the arrival of Marc Denis from Columbus.

Pink Is In

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the National Post,

There will be a rose-coloured haze in the stands next hockey season. The NHL is producing team jerseys in bubble-gum pink. "It allows women to be fashionable and still support their teams," said Jenny Lyons Cohane, a spokeswoman for Reebok, which manufactures official NHL team jerseys. Reebok's pink jerseys, like the official version, will feature the NHL's shield and tags. Available starting Oct. 1, the pink jerseys will retail for about $70 compared to $110 for the licensed men's jersey. The women's product is made of a softer polyester and it features a screen print of the team crest instead of the embroidered crest and shoulder patches.
more Readers of KK may remember the Flyers pink jersey (with picture)...

MacLean Looks Like A Genius Now

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated,

Need tonight's winning lottery numbers? The winner in the seventh race at Pimlico? You might want to check with Doug MacLean. He obviously has a crystal ball. MacLean, after all, is the man who foretold -- or maybe started -- a sea change in the way NHL teams approach their salary structure. It was last August when the Columbus GM was widely ridiculed for giving Rick Nash, a burgeoning star but one with only two seasons under his belt, an unprecedented five-year, $27 million contract. Less than a year later MacLean has been vindicated as a true early adapter of the new CBA.

Getting Defensive

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Globe and Mail,

The days of wide-open, run-and-gun affairs at GM Place may be only a memory come the fall, judging by off-season manoeuvring as the Vancouver Canucks reload with emphasis placed on defensive responsibility. That approach may be Vancouver's ticket for returning to the National Hockey League playoffs, but it's a dramatic shift for a team that was once one of the most entertaining, at least in the Western Conference. “We won't have restrictions in offensive play,” Steve Tambellini, vice-president and assistant general manager, noted Tuesday. “The idea will be to have a better sense of commitment to the detail in our own zone. That's how teams in the final four played. It was fantastic hockey.”
