Calm Down There Philly!

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,

Based on the tornado of hype that’s been rolling through the Philadelphia area the last couple weeks, one presumes the Philadelphia Flyers have been pre-approved to hoist the Stanley Cup next spring.
Hate to bear bleak news, but for as well as GM Paul Holmgren has done in quickly rebuilding the franchise from the Corey Haim-like depths it sunk to this past season, the Flyers still have a ways to go before they can be deemed a genuine championship contender.

Oilers and Islanders Do a Deal

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From NYIslanders.com,

The Islanders have acquired Edmonton’s second round pick in the 2008 NHL draft by trading depth defenseman Allan Rourke and a 2008 third round pick to the Oilers. The Islanders now have two second round picks in what is expected to be a deep draft in June, 2008.
“Although it may seem a relatively small deal from a players’ standpoint, this is very good news for us,” said Islanders assistant GM/Director of Amateur Scouting Ryan Jankowski. “Next year is expected to be a stronger and deeper draft than the past few years. In this draft, you can never have enough early picks.”

Next Step Kiprusoff & That May Not Be Easy

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from George Johnson of the Calgary Herald,

Both Regehr and Iginla spoke Wednesday of the advantages of playing and living in this city. How they were deciding factors in them re-signing rather than waiting to play the open market.
To Kiprusoff, the intangibles may not be as persuasive.
Relative anonymity would seem to be something he craves, and can’t find here. This isn’t an athlete who requires constant ego-inflation, who plays the celebrity card, who strides into the glare of the spotlight and starts belting out Everything’s Coming Up Roses a la Ethel Merman.

Briere- Sabres Will Be Competitive

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from WBEN,

Former Buffalo Sabre Daniel Briere says he has no worries that the Buffalo Sabres will be a competitive team, even without him and co-captain Chris Drury, or forward Dainius Zubrus, all three lost to free agency.
“I think they still have a very good team. Obviously, there are two big parts that will be leaving, and another one with Dainius Zubrus I should say three of them, but you know what? there’s so much depth upfront on the team, and that’s why they decided to go with youth.,” Briere said, in an early morning airport interview Thursday with John Zach & Susan Rose, on Buffalo’s Early News.

Ohlund Underwent Off-Season Surgery

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Vancouver Sun,

“I was surprised to hear Ohlund got operated on after the season,” Roberto Luongo said. “What was it? A sports hernia? I didn’t even know he was hurt. That shows you how tough he is.”
Ohlund, modest to a fault, explained Wednesday in an interview from Sweden that his condition wasn’t a dire one and didn’t require treatment on a regular basis.
“The injury wasn’t a big deal,” Ohlund insisted. “It was bugging me at times, it was more of an achy feeling, but it didn’t really bother me in games once I got warmed up. I could have probably gone on for another year, but we thought it was a good time now to get it done and get it over with.”
