Morning Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

“It was a tough decision for Steve, that’s why it took such a long time.  It’s not easy leaving Detroit for somebody like Steve. He’s been with us for 27 years. He came as an 18-year-old and just recently celebrated his 45th birthday. So it was not an easy decision for him to make.”

-Jimmy Devellano of the Detroit Red Wings talking about Steve Yzerman becoming the new GM for Tampa.  More from Chris McCosky of the Detroit News.

Stanley Cup Finals Predictions

Blog: The Puck Stops Here By PuckStopsHere

My third round predictions did not go well as i was 0-2.  When combined with my first round and second round predictions, this drops my record to 7-7.  I have been as good as a fair coin in predicting the winners.  When I look for other predictions on the internet, I find that I am not doing much worse (and in some cases am doing better) than anyone else is.  Nobody has successfully predicted a large percentage of series this year as far as I can tell.  Which is the way Gary Bettman wants it.

The Price Of Purchasing A Half-Interest In The Carolina Hurricanes

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Michael K. Ozanian of Forbes,

Peter Karmanos is looking to sell 50% of the Carolina Hurricanes. Despite playing in a great building (RBC Center) I believe he will only get about $85 million for half the club.

My How Times Have Changed In Chicago

Choose A Shark

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mark Purdy of the Mercury News,

There is a very real possibility that the Sharks will need to choose between keeping the best goalie in franchise history or keeping their all-time leading scorer.

Evgeni Nabokov or Patrick Marleau. You can only choose one to sign for next season. Whom will it be?

General manager Doug Wilson was loath to discuss the situation during the regular season and the playoffs. There’s no way to escape it now. In general terms, Wilson always has maintained that there is always a way to retain players if both parties want it to happen.

He’s right. Optimistic math says Wilson could retain both Nabokov and Marleau. Logical math says he can’t.

Great SCF Matchup For The NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

For the third year in a row, the NHL has struck it rich.

First it was Detroit versus Pittsburgh, Motown’s finest against Sid the Kid. The next year, there was the Rust Belt rematch and a seven-game classic.

Now comes a collision in the Stanley Cup final between two of America’s most passionate and historic sports cities.

Somebody in the Bettman administration must be saying their prayers at night.

The Windy City and the City of Brotherly Love, head-to-head, a matchup that Major League Baseball, the NBA or the NFL would embrace any time.
