Afternoon Line- Donald Fehr On The 2018 Winter Olympics

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

“I’ve been in this business too long to make predictions either on timing or anything else, I think at this point, we have to wait and see how it plays out. I think, however, if we end up not going, the reaction from the players’ side — across the board — is not going to be a good one. And my guess is it’s going to last for a very long time.”

-Donald Fehr, executive director of the NHLPA.  Michael Traikos of the National Post has more on this topic.

Top UFAs

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Luke Fox of Sportsnet,

Some of these stars will move on due to salary cap restraints, younger talent and decreased playoff hopes. Others will be retained at any cost (but, y'know, within reason) and subjected to rounds of Twitter rumours.

The Capitals, Sharks and Flames, in particular, are about to face some tough choices.

Here is a look at the NHL's Top 17 unrestricted free agents of 2017, plus a list of the other household names whose next job is on the line.

more, Kevin Shattenkirk is #1 on the list followed by T.J. Oshie...

Dan Renouf’s Game

Blog: The Malik Report By Paul

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Renouf is a 6-foot-2, 205-pound defenseman who the Red Wings signed as an undrafted college free agent out of Maine in March 2016.

You’re not going to get flash and dash from Renouf. But judging from scouting reports, Renouf is the poster child for a defensive defenseman, who also doesn’t mind to play a physical game.

“It’s something, I think, is the biggest part of my game, being gritty and that physical part of the game,” Renouf said.

In 58 games this season, Renouf had 15 points (three goals, 12 assists) with a plus-15 rating and 59 penalty minutes.

“I had a chance to watch him play earlier in the season and got chance to watch him last summer, and he’s good sized defenseman who plays fairly efficiently, skates well and makes good decisions with the puck,” coach Jeff Blashill said. “Efficient is a world that he’s going to want to be.

“He’s got a toughness to him. I’m interested to see him. You don’t know for sure you until you get chances to watch guys play.”

An Optional Skate For The Wings

On another note, George is still ill and at this point I have no idea when he will return.

I will try to keep up with any Wings news but it certainly won't be as thorough like George does.

The Latest From The IIHF On The Olympics

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

The head of the International Ice Hockey Federation remains hopeful for an NHL Olympic resolution but again made it clear that skipping the tournament in South Korea in 2018, then coming back to play in Beijing in 2022, is not the way to go.

"We have previously stated that the NHL can't just pick and choose which Olympics to participate in," Rene Fasel said in a statement to ESPN.com from the IIHF on Monday. "Our discussions are focused on going to Pyeongchang, and any discussion about Beijing can wait until this has been settled.

"Building ice hockey's profile in Asia is one of the top mandates of my current presidential term. There is a rising interest in the sport within Korea, and we would miss a huge opportunity to grow the game if we didn't have a best-on-best showcase in this country."
