Yankee Stadium for 2010?

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Stan Fischler at Game On,

While Yankee Stadium would appear to be a sure thing for the NHL’s 2010 outdoor game, much will depend on how well the 2009 Wrigley Field (Chicago-Detroit) Classic draws at the gate and on TV. Another hang-up could be negotiations with the Yankees over use of their new ballpark because it won’t be cheap.

Another battle will be over choice of the Rangers’ opponent. Guaranteed, the Islanders and Devils will fight hard to get into the act.

Ummm. Hello? Do We Have An Asst. Coach Or Not?

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Screw it. I’ll run the power play.

We’ve got one guy in Atlanta saying McCrimmon’s been hired.  A guy in Michigan agreeing.  Another guy in Atlanta confirming.  And a bunch of Diggers in Detroit riding the fence.

Ho frigging hum.

A Full-Scale War

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Eric McErlain at the Sporting News,

It was just last week that I warned that Russia’s nascent Kontinental Hockey League represented a legitimate threat to the way that the NHL did business.

Now, here we are just a week later, and the brewing competition between the two leagues over hockey talent—in particular Russian-born hockey talent—is threatening to escalate into a full-scale war.

Eric reviews the events of the past week, then further explores the long-term impact all this might have on the NHL.

Take Some Time Off Mike

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Stars Blog at the Dallas Morning News,

One of the most beloved and yet most controversial figure on the Stars, Mike Modano certainly inspires strong opinions.

He recently turned 38, and recently told The Ticket he wants to play both of the remaining years of his contract. That’s quite a switch from not being sure he wanted to play even one more season, but that is the way of Modano. He is a great player who actually loves the game of hockey, but doesn’t love the grind of the season.

So how do the Stars take advantage of that? In my opinion, I think they need to give him forced vacations.

Back To Annandale? Negative. Not Gonna Happen.

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Steely Dan carried me the last four miles to work this morning.  Donald Fagen advocates a California tumble into the Pacific.  Whatever. Nothing a little glue stick can’t fix. 

Meanwhile, we have issues to address.

Larionov Wants To Restore Hockey In Russia

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Snapshots at Mlive,

In the attached articles, Larionov seems intent upon not only helping SKA build a winning team, but also working on restoring some of Russia’s status as a country that can develop solid hockey players. He’s going to be a member of the KHL’s board of directors, and as such, he adds a somewhat moderate and nuanced viewpoint to a group of owners who are, by and large, economic oligarchs, and a set of GMs and coaches who are comprised Russian hockey veterans and the last of the Soviet hockey machine.

Niedermayer Recovers All Of His ‘Fine’ Money

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

Scott Niedermayer is getting his money back ... all of it ... every single cent of the $490,909.08 he was improperly fined by the NHL for missing Anaheim’s training camp last season, The Post has learned.

As originally reported by The Post on April 20, the former Devil had been fined under Article 15.3 (f) of the collective-bargaining agreement even though he had been granted permission by GM Brian Burke to take an unpaid leave of absence in the wake of Anaheim’s 2007 Stanley Cup victory, the fourth championship of the defenseman’s career.

Two days later, TSN.ca leaped to the defense of the league - shocker, there - by contending that the fine was mandatory despite the unambiguous wording of the CBA that a penalty should be imposed only if a player refuses to report without his club’s permission.
