Olczyk, Haggerty and Cotsonika weigh in on Red Wings-B’s series, and Wings off-day videos

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

The Red Wings practice post is chock-full of quips, quotes and videos, but I didn't have space to add what I'll describe as an "interesting" interview. NBC's Eddie Olczyk spoke with Detroit Sports 105.1 FM's Matt Dery today, discussing the Wings-Bruins series and the concept that precident = it's okay to not suspend people for spearing...

Somebody who has more of a rooting interest, Comcast Sportsnet Northeast's Joe Haggerty, also spoke about the Red Wings-Bruins series with WDFN's Matt Dery this morning...

Markus Näslund Heads To Hall of Fame

Blog: KK Hockey By Monica McAlister

News out of Sweden is that retired Swedish NHL legend Markus Näslund has been elected to the Swedish Ice Hockey Hall of Fame.

Admittedly my Swedish is a bit rusty as I have not used it as much the last few seasons but it looks as though Markus Näslund, Eje Lindström, Ulf Dahlén and Jonas Bergqvis were elected by the Swedish Ice Hockey Association. 

You can read the Swedish Release here.

Näslund was drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins 16th overall in 1991 and played the majority of his career with the Vancouver Canucks before finishing his NHL career with the New York Rangers in the 2008-2009 season.

Preparing For The Buyout Season

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Luke Fox of Sportsnet,

The second and final window for the NHL clubs to use their amnesty buyouts will begin the later of June 15 or 48 hours after the 2014 Stanley Cup final concludes. The buyout window slams shut for good at 5 p.m. ET on June 30. Bought-out players become unrestricted free agents and can sign with a new club on July 1.

Each team was granted two compliance buyouts to use either last summer or this one, a clause embedded in the new CBA to provide some previously spend-silly GMs with a mulligan. Or two. Some teams have already hinted at their intentions publicly; others are remaining tight-lipped and will work the trade phones until they’re left with no other options.

In order to be bought out, the player must not be injured, however. He must also pass through waivers, although that is more a matter of formality since no one is jumping to pay Ville Leino what the 2011 Sabres are. Important to note that a player cannot re-sign with the same club that bought him out until a full calendar year passes.

Here, in brief, is what we know about where your favourite team stands on using its buyouts before the window closes.

Down 0-2, The Minnesota Wild Make A Goalie Change

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Michael Russo of Russo's Rants,

The Wild was in the driver’s seat, up 4-2 in Game 1 until with less than 13 minutes left, Kyle Brodziak burps up a puck to Ryan O’Reilly, Jamie McGinn scores and the rest of the night was pandemonium. The Wild, 5-10 all-time at home in the playoffs, went from potentially being up 1-0 in the series to now being in a 2-0 hole with Game 3 tonight (6 p.m.) at the X.

For the first time in his Wild career, Brodziak will be a healthy scratch tonight. Justin Fontaine and Dany Heatley draw in, Stephane Veilleux and Brodziak come out.

Darcy Kuemper will make his first career playoff start and fourth playoff appearance against Semyon Varlamov. It’s Kuemper’s first start since a concussion and first start since March 27 in St. Louis. Before the injury, the second-half savior won once in his final eight starts, allowing three or more goals in six of those games. He stopped all 14 shots he saw in relief of Ilya Bryzgalov in Game 2, but starting in the playoffs is a different mentality than just getting thrown in. He’s got all day to think and … not freak out.
