Time For An Update

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

It’s been nearly two years since we took a hard look at the A2Y Glossary.  I plan on doing that this weekend.  But before I do, I’m soliciting your input.  Read it over. If you think there are entries that need to go, or have suggestions for phrases we haven’t placed in there yet…place your ideas in the comment section here.

I’ll (a) ignore them or (2) take full credit for their creation.

The Kubina Misunderstanding

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,

Pavel Kubina says the contretemps over a failed trade that would have sent him to the San Jose Sharks was all a misunderstanding.

Both he and his agent, former NHL player Petr Svoboda, said the Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman never agreed to waive his no-trade clause and then reneged on Monday night.

Pronger Has Minor Jaw Surgery

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the OC Register,

The Ducks could have a short-term hole on defense in light of their revelation that captain Chris Pronger underwent surgery Monday to repair a “small fracture” in his jaw suffered in Sunday’s 6-3 victory over visiting Chicago.

“It’s not clear how much time he will miss,” Burke said. “It’s certainly not expected to be lengthy. A game or two is the expectation at this time.”

Hey Dobber. My son and I are in a keeper league pool and we want to rebuild for the future. We have 20 players – 14 good ones – and keep only 10 at the beginning of each season…

Bettman in Congress

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From CBC Sports,

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman told a U.S. House subcommittee on Wednesday that hockey is not plagued by steroid use among its players.

Bettman joined his major-league counterparts — baseball commissioner Bud Selig, NBA commissioner David Stern and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell — in Washington where he testified that only one player has tested positive for steroid use in the 2½ years since the NHL resumed play after the 2004-05 lockout.

“As a historical matter, the many years that NHL players have been tested in international competition, as well as recent testing under our program, suggests that performance-enhancing drugs had never been part of the culture of the NHL…”

Memo to Drew Sharp:  It’s Not Just Us

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

So Drew Sharp, based on zero hockey knowledge and his access to a keyboard, blasted Kenny Holland today.  Sharp said he lacked the courage to make a deadline move.  Sharp said, “that’s it?” regarding the Stuart trade.  Sharp claims Holland should have harkened back to the days of unlimited money and mindless spending.

Sharp, as we know, is a tool.

Leonsis Breaks Down His Trades

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ted’s Takes,

I think we helped ourselves without hurting our team’s future. We entered the sessions with a list of “must NOT do’s”:

1. Do not trade any young players in the lineup that we count as core.

2. Do not trade any first round picks.

3. Do not pick up any major salary requirements in the out years that make us NOT re-sign our young players. If we could add to the team without “blowing our brains out”, we would do so and we did.

Canucks Don’t Address Their Needs

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Vancouver Province,

So the Canucks held on to their future, sacrificed the present and raised questions about their fate.

For this year, that will be in the hands of a star goalie, a potentially high end blueline and what general manager Dave Nonis dubbed “a middle-of-the-road” offence.

Is that enough to make a legitimate run at the Stanley Cup, considering a similar combination wasn’t enough last year, considering the significant improvements the Stars, the Sharks and the Avalanche all made Tuesday?
