Phoenix Has No Intention Of Trading Doan

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Airzona Republic,

Many of the rumors, Barnett said, are ridiculous. He cited those involving captain Shane Doan. "Shane Doan is a person that I haven't had a single, solitary discussion about with another team," Barnett said. "If I did, it would be a short discussion." In other words, Doan isn't going anywhere. "The primary focus . . . is on players whose contracts are expiring," Barnett said. "In most of those cases, we would prefer to re-sign the player, but only if the salary fits into our intended structure moving forward."

NHL Fails To Send Tough Message

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the News & Observer,

Cole, one of hockey's best players this season, suffered a fractured vertebra in his neck after an overly aggressive blindside hit by Orpik. ...Hurricanes players and coaches were upset -- rightfully so -- that the league's front office didn't send down a tougher message. But Orpik could have received a lifetime NHL ban and there would be at least one cheap shot delivered somewhere around the league tonight. Roughhouse play and hockey have been joined at the hip almost from the beginning. For the majority of its existence, the NHL has allowed more outright fist-fighting than the other three major team sports leagues combined.

Q & A With Clarke

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Philadelphia Inquirer,

Clarke sat down Monday to discuss his thoughts. Among the names out there for possible trades are those of Mark Recchi, Wes Walz, Derek Morris and Dallas Drake. The club would love to get Olli Jokinen from Florida - as would others - but he will command a high price. The Flyers have a little more than $2 million in salary-cap room. That's not a lot. Q: Is waiving two players an option to gain more cap space? A: You certainly don't want to do that. I don't think a player of that salary will be available, anyway. In my situation, you look at every option, just like every other team.

Forcing Florida To Not Make A Trade

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Miami Herald,

The Panthers' performance against the Senators, Luongo said, hopefully would ''force'' management not to pull the trigger on a trade, especially one involving himself or Jokinen. Martin said unloading players by Thursday's trade deadline would damage the Panthers' postseason push. ''We all like each other on this team,'' Van Ryn said. ``I don't think anybody wants to see anybody go. I think right now everybody is playing for each other and trying to make the playoffs.

Mixed Message

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Calgary Sun,

"I don't foresee our team doing anything, to be quite honest. I like what we have and that's pretty well it," Sutter said to the gathering. Yesterday, the media gathered were told Sutter wouldn't be available, with the explanation -- valid explanation -- being he was busy doing his GM duties. Instead, he spoke and even made a point to ensure one person who arrived late to the scrum had enough. Maybe he's fed-up with the asking price he's being given. So many teams believe they're still in a playoff race and are on the hunt for impact roster players. So, coming out with a bold statement now could be a firing shot across the bow as if to say he won't pay more than he wants to right now.

No Major Deals For Columbus

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Columbus Dispatch,

One phone call could change everything, of course. But with one day left before the NHL trade deadline at 3 p.m. Thursday, the Blue Jackets aren’t likely to be a major player. President and general manager Doug MacLean has had a handful of conversations, he said, but "only minor deals." And even those don’t appear likely.

Finding The Solution Is Key For Rangers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Journal News,

"It's interesting; at what point in time do we stand up and say, we need this, we've got to fix this, change this?" Rangers coach Tom Renney said. "We know what we want, we know what we need. We also know we're not going to give up young people to do anything at all. We also know some of those solutions we don't have here this year are coming." "I don't know if we're a Stanley Cup contender right now but I think we can continue to surprise a lot of people by what we do these next 20 games and the playoffs," Renney said.

What About It, NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

TSN will be televising the Trade Centre Show beginning Thursday at 8:00am ET. Wouldn't it be great if the NHL could somehow stream that show or get it on Center Ice allowing hockey fans in the U.S. to catch deadline fever? Maybe they have it planned and if so, great, if not, it's not too late to do so.
