Cammalleri Ruling

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Rich Hammond at Inside the Kings has been doing a great job following this ruling and will be releasing the numbers soon.  If they are correct, the ruling came in lower than people expected.

added 8:46pm, per Rich Hammond,

$3.1 million next season and $3.6 million in ‘08-‘09 for Cammalleri. Those are the numbers I have, and I have them from a very good source who is confident that they are correct.

added 9:43pm, OK Kings fans, enough of “is something up” questions on this ruling.
On the LA Kings homepage... The Kings have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with restricted free agent Michael Cammalleri.
You should also trust what your beat writer is saying, forget the other stuff, it is all fluff!

added 9:48pm, from Rich Hammond,

As for the range, the Kings came in at $2.6 million and Cammalleri came in at $6 million.

more... looks like the Cammalleri was shooting for the moon…

But the GM has not heard definitively of the winger’s plans.
“A couple of people have mentioned that to me,” Chiarelli said of Chistov’s possible departure. “I don’t know one way or another. I have a call into his agent. We’ll see where it goes.”

Ryan Craig Awarded $850K

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via TSN,

Ryan Craig of the Tampa Bay Lightning was awarded one-year, $850,000 contract by an arbitrator after his hearing on Friday.
Craig was seeking a one-year, $1.2 million contract while the Lightning were asking the arbitrator for a one-year, $650,000 deal.
‘‘We appreciate the fact that the Arbitrator weighed all the evidence presented and awarded what we believe is a very reasonable contract for this player,’’ said Lightning general manager Jay Feaster said. ‘‘We had consistently discussed a negotiated arrangement with Ryan that always had us starting at the $750,000 mark and we believe the award in this case is consistent with our thinking. The good news is that Ryan will now be under contract for the 2007-08 season and the amount of the award will not force our hand in terms of having to move the player.’‘

Atlanta Interested In Signing Hossa, Not Trading Him

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Thrashers Blog,

First, let’s address the Marian Hossa trade rumors. Despite rumors to the contrary floating around the internet, I want to stress that the Thrashers are much more interested in signing Hoss to a contract extension than trading him. There are no serious trade talks as of right now, and I don’t anticipate that changing any time soon.
So rather than fan those flames any more than we already have, let’s start a new debate. Who do you think the Thrashers are going to miss the most off of last year’s team?

continued... much more Atlanta talk…

Something “The Entertainer” Should Read & Address

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Spector’s Soapbox,

I realize there are other bloggers - some of them I like to consider my friends - who have legitimate issues with what he does, but that’s between them and Eklund to sort out.
I’ve publicly opted not to take sides, as I feel there’s plenty of room in cyberspace for he and I to peacefully co-exist and as long as he respects that so will I.
The only problem I’ve had with Eklund is his anonymity, which I felt was a detriment in terms of earning his peers respect, legitimacy for his work and gaining access within the ranks of the NHL media.

read on... and I am sure that is what many of the bloggers want.  Address the issues Dwayne, it is time to do so.

Canadiens Owner Buys Into NASCAR

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Habs Inside/Out,

Recognizing that the rate of change off-track has exceeded the change on-track in the past few years, Evernham forged a relationship with Gillett, whose diverse holdings offer unique business-to-business opportunities, sponsorship activation and fulfillment that will revolutionize what sponsors can expect from a NASCAR team.
Gillett is the owner of the Montreal Canadiens National Hockey League (NHL) team and a co-owner of the Liverpool Football Club in the English Premier League. Gillett’s other business interests include the Bell Centre, home of the Montreal Canadiens and Gillett Entertainment Group (GEG), producers of some 700 sporting and entertainment events in numerous venues throughout Canada and the United States.

It Is August - Time To Think Hockey

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Darren Eliot at Sports Illustrated,

August means getting on the rink for the first time in months for many players, as dry land training merges with on-ice exercises. Many times that means relocating from summer homes to one’s city of employment, as players congregate for informal ice sessions prior to camp. For veterans, that may also mean getting their kids situated in schools, and for those who are arriving in a city for the first time, it means getting acclimated to new living accommodations is also a part of the process.
The driving force, however, remains the pull of the game during that last lull before it all begins in earnest. It’s a time for clarity when goals and expectations can be set and measured from the relative calm of summer…
