See Ya Schneids

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Mathieu Schneider says sayonara and heads back to the Kings for six million/year.

Well, that was three days ago. Wrong team, but right state and damn near exact amount.  Sad?  Of course you are.  What do we lose?  A lot:  157 points over three years, a blast from the point, a constant threat and some violent tendencies rarely mentioned but always appreciated.

So…5.6/year?  Was that too rich for Kenny’s blood?

Maybe.  Or maybe he’s thinking Kronwall can put up 2/3 of that and we won’t be hurt by Schneider’s defection.  And maybe he’s hedging his bets and stashing his cash.

For who?  You know who.

Possibilities with Ray Emery

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

More from On Frozen Pond,

Confusing? Heck yeah. So, here’s an example that I’ve heard may go down: Ottawa goalie Ray Emery is a RFA, but could be tendered an offer by the L.A. Kings for a lot more money. If he signs the offer sheet and Ottawa decides to let Emery walk, L.A. owes Ottawa a number of draft picks commensurate to how much offered Emery.
If L.A. offers Emery between $3.52-$4.69, the price is a first, second and third-round pick. If the deal is for more, it’s two first rounders, a second and a third. If the contract is for more than $5.9 mil per season, the Kings owe four first round picks (and they need to see a phychiatrist pronto.)

We Wait

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Spector checks in at KK,

It’s obvious the reason why it’s so quiet in the opening hour and change thus far is, as the TSN crew pointed out, the top UFAs are getting lots of offers and they’re taking their time sorting through them.

Once the main guys make up their minds (and I expect that to start happening by 2 PM ET), the logjam will be broken and the signings will come fast and furious, because the ultimate destination of the main guys will have those teams that lost out in the bidding for them turning to their “Plan B” players.

Just my two cents while we wait. This is as bad as my military days…“hurry up and wait”.

Report: Iginla Gets Long Term Contract Extension

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From TSN,

The first hour of unrestricted free agency in the NHL didn’t bring any blockbuster deals, but The Hockey News reports the Calgary Flames are on the verge of giving captain Jarome Iginla a long-term contract extension.
Multiple sources have confirmed that later Sunday or Monday, the Flames will announce they have reached an agreement with Iginla on either a four-or five-year contract extension. Depending on the length of the deal, it would keep Iginla in Calgary through the 2011-12 season or the 2012-13 season.
