Rangers Praise Avery

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Newsday,

“I thought he brought an intelligence to the game that we like,” Rangers coach Tom Renney said Wednesday. “He skates well, he handles the puck well. He can shoot. He asserted himself. He’s a proactive player. I see Sean, with his ability to skate and read the game, as being a penalty-killer. I hope [the fans] respond well to him; I hope they respond well to our team.”

Roy Leans On Hartley

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,

It is a relationship forged when Bob Hartley was a minor-league coach and Patrick Roy was already a goaltending legend.
It continues today as Hartley is coach of the NHL’s Thrashers and Roy is part-owner, general manager and coach of a junior team in Quebec. Their phone calls criss-cross North America as much as three times a week with the Hall of Famer seeking advice from the man who coached him to a Stanley Cup title in Colorado.

Samsonov Meets With Habs

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via MetroNews,

Samsonov, a major disappointment this season, looked to be back in the fold Wednesday after meeting with head coach Guy Carbonneau and GM Bob Gainey.
It isn’t certain that he will be in the lineup for a game Thursday night against the Senators in Ottawa, but Carbonneau said “he"ll definitely be back in the lineup at some point.
“I never had problems with Sergei Samsonov as a man,” Carbonneau added.

Who Wants Bertuzzi

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Bellowing Moose at NBC Sports,

So what are the all-seeing antlered one’s latest predictions? First, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Alba don’t make it to Memorial Day, and second, Todd Bertuzzi gets traded soon by Florida….
Who would be interested? How about his former boss Brian Burke? The Anaheim GM has always been one of Bertuzzi’s biggest backers, and the Ducks could use some size on the front end.
Another Bertuzzi fan is Wayne Gretzky in Phoenix.

Pens Impressive

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via Sports Illustrated,

Right now, that learning curve looks more like a straightaway.
“I’d hate to play them two years from now,’’ Trotz said. “They’re building something very special in Pittsburgh, and the city should be pretty excited.’‘
No doubt their fans would be more revved up if that building plan included a new arena - the team and the state are negotiating how to pay for a replacement for 45-year-old Mellon Arena, but an agreement has not yet been reached.

Game Saving Stop

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Andrew Raycroft made a beauty of a save last night in the Leafs 2-1 victory over the Blues.
And to think some media talk on the radio today said Guerin got the shot off too slow and should have hit the corner.  Well, isn’t that true for all shots that don’t cross the red line…hmmm, missed it by “that” much!

NHL Entry Draft Goes Prime Time

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

NEW YORK (Feb. 7, 2007)—The 2007 NHL Entry Draft will be held over two days, on Friday, June 22 and Saturday, June 23, at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, the National Hockey League announced today.

The first round will be conducted Friday night and broadcast live on VERSUS in the United States and TSN and RDS in Canada, beginning at 7 p.m., ET. Rounds two through seven will take place Saturday and start at 10 a.m., ET.

In Columbus, NHL club executives, scouts and coaches will be present on the Entry Draft floor while over 10,000 fans and more than 500 print, television and radio media also are expected. The Draft is expected to attract approximately 3,000 visitors to the city, accounting for 4,500 room nights and approximately $3 million in visitor spending.

Montreal native Angelo Esposito, a center for the defending Memorial Cup champion Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, is the top-ranked North American skater in the NHL Central Scouting Service mid-season ranking of eligible players for the Draft. Trevor Cann of the OHL’s Peterborough Petes is the top-rated North American goaltender, while right wing Alexei Cherepanov (Omsk, Russia) and goaltender Mark Owuya (Djurgarden) of the Swedish junior league are the top ranked skater and goalie, respectively, from European leagues.

Looking At The Sellers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from E.J. Hradek of ESPN,

As we skate toward the Feb. 27 trade deadline, you’re going to hear a lot of us media types talking about “buyers” and “sellers.”
Buyers are seeking to add players for a playoff push, and sellers are hoping to dump salary or gain assets for a player (usually an unrestricted free agent) who does not fit into future plans.
At this point, I see nine sellers. By deadline day, there might a few more clubs looking to peddle their unwanted wares. For now, here’s my list:
St. Louis Blues
New coach Andy Murray pumped a lot of life into the Blues. Still, it would take quite a run for them to make the playoffs.
