Witt Could Be Moved At Any Time

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

GM George McPhee of the Washington Capitals was just on Leafs Lunch and states he would move Witt today if the right offer was made. It is just a matter of time, has talked to several teams and just waiting for the right offer. George mentioned he doesn't want to trade him, but Witt wants a chance at the Cup. He said he is tired of trading for prospects because most of the time they never work out. The trade may sound good at the time, but down the road the prospects never reach their potential.

Five Men Back- So It Isn’t So

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

I sure hope Chuck is wrong... from Chuck Gormley of NHL.com,

Don't be surprised to see more NHL coaches adopting Finland's five-men-back defensive system down the stretch. The system was very successful because it limited opponents' ability to get to the net. Essentially, the Finns tried to keep the game scoreless at even strength, then strike on the power play and sit on their leads.

Minor Leaguer Suffers Severe Eye Trauma

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from WMTW,

A member of the Portland Pirates hockey team remains in the hospital with severe eye trauma after he was hit by a puck in a game Friday night. Defenseman Jordan Smith received emergency eye surgery Friday night after the injury, which occurred during a game against the Manchester Monarchs.
It is my understanding the puck was deflected off of a stick and hit him in the eye. No idea if he had a visor or if the league requires one.

NHL Quickly Improving

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Daily Sentinel,

NHL scoring is up, attendance is up and revenues are up. But perhaps the most significant change in the NHL after a year without hockey took place not on the ice, but in corporate boardrooms. "No sports entrepreneur would ever let me talk about investing in an NHL franchise for at least the last five years," said Rick Horrow, a sports business consultant. "Now it's taking place in conversation again, really for the first time in nearly a decade."

Look For…

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John Buccigross of ESPN,

For a long time, "SportsCenter" would punctuate its show with a "Did You Know?" segment.

Niedermayer May Play Wednesday

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the LA Times,

With his knee faring better than anyone anticipated after arthroscopic surgery, Mighty Duck captain Scott Niedermayer isn't ruling out being in the lineup for Wednesday's home game against the Detroit Red Wings. Niedermayer took part in his first full practice Monday since having torn cartilage removed from his knee on Feb. 13. "That is totally speculation at this point," Carlyle said. "There'll be a number of conversations that'll take place between himself and myself and the medical staff and the doctors before any conclusion [can be made]. We would never put a player back in a situation where he's not fully recovered."

McKee Sees Free Agency Ahead

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

This could be Jay McKee's final playoff push with the Buffalo Sabres. Buffalo's longest-tenured player will be an unrestricted free agent after the season. Based on the club's policy of not entertaining contract extensions while games are being played, McKee has trouble being optimistic about his return. The veteran defenseman said he would prefer to stay, but admitted it would be difficult for the Sabres to retain him once he hits the open market. The longer the Sabres are silent, the more loudly money talks.
