Maltby May Go On LTIR

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

In order to clear the last $700,000 needed (to activate Lilja), general manager Ken Holland said forward Kirk Maltby might go on long-term injured reserve because of a chronic shoulder injury that will, at some point, require surgery.

Panthers Talking Trades

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from George Richards of On Frozen Pond,

Sexton says he got some things done and progress is being made toward the real trade deadline on March 3. That’s when teams will be wheeling and dealing….

“I thought today went pretty well. Worked at things, made good progress, just couldn’t get anything completed.

“Today is the first deadline before the next deadline. There’s a lot of time, I’ll just keep working the next few weeks until the early part of March.

“Some teams still have games to play and we’re all under the CBA roster limitations and salary cap floors and ceilings. For some teams, they’re at the roster limit and playing tonight or tomorrow and it’s a challenge to manage things. It’s a point of negotiating. You want the lowest price if you are a buyer, and you want to extract the highest price if you are a seller.

In exchange for Cullen, the Hurricanes will receive defenseman Alexandre Picard and Ottawa’s second-round pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

Canadian Olympic Team Leaves Scoring Talent Behind

Blog: The Puck Stops Here By PuckStopsHere

The top scorers in the NHL who are not going to the Olympics are all Canadians.  The seventh, eighth and tenth highest scorers in the league right now were all omissions from the Canadian Olympic Team.  They are Martin St Louis, Steve Stamkos and Brad Richards respectively.  They are the third, fourth and sixth highest scorers among Canadian players in the NHL.  The older two of the group in St Louis and Richards have Olympic experience.  I think their omissions from the team are highly questionable.  In fact, I had all three of them as choices on my Olympic team.

If the Canadian Olympic team has trouble scoring (and they did in Turino), they have nobody to blame but themselves for their roster choices.  Shouldn`t a former Hart Trophy winner who is seventh in scoring in the league be good enough to make the team?
