Savard ReadyFor Free Agency

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,

The NHL's free agency period begins on Saturday and already Marc Savard has moved on mentally from the Thrashers. The 29-year-old unrestricted free agent is grateful to the organization — coach Bob Hartley said he speaks to Savard once a week and that Savard will work at his camp in York, Pa., in July. But that doesn't lessen Savard's disappointment. "Kind of [disappointed] in a way because I loved playing there," he said via phone while in his offseason home of Peterborough, Ont. "Everyone's been great to me. Nothing's wrong. Everything that happened there, I'm not leaving on any bad terms. [Thrashers general manager] Donnie Waddell was great for my career. I don't leave anything bad behind. Atlanta was my first decision, but things didn't work out right now."

Remembering Keith Gave

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Red Wings fans should remember Keith Gave. from AbeltoYzerman,

Yesterday I posted an article found in the Bay City Times (I also pointed to it on KK) that claimed the Red Wing organization is hoping Steve Yzerman will retire. But it was clear in a near hour-long conversation with Devellano that the club is hoping the captain will call it a career – for his own good. A huge statement. An epic statement, but one that is paraphrased and not attributed to Devellano. The writer is providing us his impressions of his interview rather than a quote from Jimmy D directly stating that the organization would prefer the Captain step down. Further down, the writer injects his own opinion. It’s best for the franchise that he calls it quits. There was no byline. No contact information. Only a reference within the body of the story to his significant time spent covering the Wings. Today I received confirmation from Bay City Times editor John Hines that the writer is, in fact, Keith Gave.

Havlat Talks Continue

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

The subject of trade rumours since the NHL draft last week in Vancouver, the posssibility of a Havlat-for-Toskala deal seems again be gaining steam. Earlier this week, the reluctance of the young Senators forward to sign a long-term deal seemed to be standing in the way of such a deal. However, sources tell the Sun this morning that talks are back on after things appeared to have fallen apart Thursday night. The sources indicate Havlat would still be part of any deal involving Toskala, but it's possible things have broadened out.

Buffalo Must Think Small Market

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

The Buffalo Sabres waited a long time for the NHL to get its financial house in order. And while they turned a profit in the first year of the new collective bargaining agreement, there's no guarantee they'll reside in the black as the CBA continues to mature and salaries escalate. Their small-market status mandates the Sabres tread cautiously. Paying Jay McKee in the vicinity of $3 million a season, a figure he might attain through free agency, would throw their payroll structure out of kilter. How can anyone rationalize paying McKee well in excess of the combined salaries of the team's top two defensemen, Henrik Tallinder and Toni Lydman? And if Regier were to cave, which he won't, he would be contributing to the indiscriminate salary escalation he lobbied against for years. McKee's a warrior who warrants a substantial increase from the Sabres, but it has to come within the small-market context.
