The 3rd Line Needs A Name

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Randy Youngman of the OC Register,

But what about a nickname for the line? Don’t Pahlsson, R. Niedermayer and Moen deserve one now?
Hmmm. How about “Crash, Bang and Boom”?
Or how about “The Swede, The Farmboy and The Other Brother”? (Pahlsson obviously is the Scandinavian, Moen is the farmer who spends his summer working on the family’s 3,500-acre cattle and grain ranch in Saskatchewan and Rob Niedermayer is often overshadowed by brother Scott, the Norris Trophy winner and captain of the Ducks.)
Or how about “The Plowboys?”

Best Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike Brophy of the Hockey News,

Let’s see, if Ottawa’s Jason Spezza, Dany Heatley and Daniel Alfredsson are supposed to be the best line in the NHL, and they are being thoroughly outplayed by Samuel Pahlsson, Rob Niedermayer and Travis Moen, doesn’t that make the Anaheim trio the best line in the league?


If you missed the game and want to catch the highlights…

What Do UFAs Do

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the National Post via Canada.com,

Owner Craig Leipold has signed a letter of intent to sell the Predators to Canadian billionaire Jim Balsillie, a deal with a closing date of June 30.
The National Hockey League’s free-agent window opens the very next day.
Nashville has seven players set to become unrestricted free agents, including captain Kimmo Timonen and forwards Paul Kariya and Peter Forsberg.
The NHL’s board of governors still has to approve the sale, leaving players and agents in need of answers from the team and general manager David Poile.
“I don’t think the league wants David Poile to hit July 1 not knowing who his owner is and not knowing what direction it’s going to go in,” Timonen’s agent, Bill Zito, said Tuesday. “We have a 100-point team, and now, all of the sudden, it’s going to disintegrate because of the timing of legalities? That doesn’t make any sense.”

Leafs Closing In On A Deal With Sundin

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Toronto Sun,

Mats Sundin is on the verge of remaining a Maple Leaf through the 2008-09 season.
Just one month before the long-time captain is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent, the two sides are close to agreeing on a two-year deal worth about $11 million US.
As of tomorrow, the Leafs have a two-week window to pick up a team option on Sundin’s existing deal. While the option would pay Sundin $4.56 million, it would still cost the Leafs about $6.33 million in cap space.

Breaking Down The Sens Play

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Darren Dreger at TSN,

The Ottawa Senators top line of Jason Spezza, Dany Heatley and Daniel Alfredsson is failing to attack the offensive zone with any amount of speed. Their transition game is also not working and there is still the issue of giveaways. Alfredsson gave the puck away six times in Game 2, while Spezza gave it away four times.

Sens Looking For Home Ice Advantage

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mark Whicker of the OC Register,

“It’s a change from the first three rounds,” said Jason Spezza of the Senators. “The officials are letting a lot of things go, and there isn’t much room and there’s bad ice besides.”
“To get outshot like this has been a little bit discouraging,” Corvo said, referring to the Ducks’ 31-16 edge for Game 2 and 63-51 overall.
“We’ve had a few guys trying to be creative offensively and it burned us,” Ottawa coach Bryan Murray said. “And we’re turning it over and creating offense for them, and I’m not sure why.”
But wait until the Senators turn their clocks ahead to EDT. Or back to the Buffalo series.

Drew Sharp’s Nemesis

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Foiled again.  By now you’ve all read Drew Sharp’s column from last week suggesting the Wings should stop at fiscally nothing to lure JSG away from his comfortable Disney surroundings. 

The bidding might reach $5 million a year. It doesn’t matter. Get it done and the Wings remain serious Cup contenders for at least the next two years.

Might reach 5 mil Drew?  Might?  Sharp says quite a bit.  Lots of words.  Except two: salary cap.  Have no fear, though, little Drew.  Spector’s here to help you…again.
