Rob Blake Would Think About Waiving NTC

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Adrian Dater at the Denver Post,

He is 38 years old, has a no-trade clause and makes a lot of money. But Rob Blake would still be attractive to many NHL teams at the league trade deadline or sooner, and the former Avalanche defenseman said he would consider waiving his clause to go to the right team.

“(The Kings) would have to come to me first, but, yeah, it’s a possibility,” Blake said, after Saturday’s 3-1 Kings victory over the Avs.

Blake, who played with Colorado from 2001-04, is in the final year of a contract earning him $6 million. With the Kings having the worst record in the NHL, even after Saturday’s win, the team could become sellers by the Feb. 26 deadline. “Hopefully, we can turn things around here first, before any (trade) talk happens,” Blake said.

Bolts Will Not Make Any Significant Moves

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the St. Petersburg Times,

“I think the answers for now have to come from within,” Feaster said, “certainly until we get a resolution with the sale situation. The one thing we’re not going to do is move the big three. It’s just not going to happen.”

Tortorella echoed that sentiment.

“We’ve got nothing coming this way,” he said. “That’s our way of life right now. We’re talked about this as a group. Don’t hold your hands out looking for help. ... There’s no help in the minors. There’s no help in signings. We have to figure it out.”

No Outdoor Game For Columbus

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Columbus Dispatch,

Why couldn’t the Blue Jackets play host to a game in Ohio Stadium? Schedule the Detroit Red Wings or the Pittsburgh Penguins, and you could draw up to 100,000, maybe more, the largest crowd to ever watch a hockey game.

“Logistically, you’ve got issues with the weather and the way we maintain the stadium in the winter,” said Don Patko, Ohio State’s assistant athletic director for facilities. “But we never say never. It would be like setting up for a rock concert.”

Blue Jackets president Mike Priest said Columbus is not on the NHL’s list for cities under consideration.

“It would be a hoot, I’ll grant you that,” Priest said. “But they made it clear that, in their mind, only a few U.S. cities could pull it off.”

Morning Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Paul Maurice when asked what he said to the team after the Leafs 6-1 loss to the Rangers last night, via the Toronto Sun,

“Some things you should keep to yourself,” Maurice said. “That’s a tough game to sit through when you are beaten that bad that early. Our penalty killers were dragging their butts (because they were on the ice so often). It doesn’t matter (about the skewed number of minor penalties). We’re not blaming anybody else for this.”

Teams Interested In Denis

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Tampa Tribune,

“He needs to play and hopefully he performs real well and as I told him, we’ll give him every opportunity to get back to the NHL in the context of re-entry waivers,” Feaster said. “At $1.4 million this year and $1.5 million next year, that’s a very reasonable contract for an NHL goaltender so if he can get back on top of his game, then I think he stands a real good opportunity to have somebody show interest in him.”

Feaster said Denis has come up in conversations with other general managers around the league.

“I’ve had general managers say our guys really liked him and our guys don’t understand his numbers right now so from that standpoint clearly there are teams who recognize that he’s an NHL goaltender and he played and had that success and he’s not been able to have that success here,” Feaster said.
