Moving Tkachuk Would Be Counterproductive

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

If he chose to do so, Blues general manager Larry Pleau could gobble up a few more mid- to late-round draft picks by selling off defenseman Eric Weinrich, captain Dallas Drake and perhaps forwards Dean McAmmond and Scott Young. He might fetch a bigger bounty for forward Keith Tkachuk, if the big guy agreed to be traded out of St. Louis before tomorrow’s deadline. But folks in and around the hockey operation believe that could be counterproductive.

Teams In The West Have Plans

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Phil Coffey of NHL.com,

Will trades be down because of the timing and the cap? NHL.com takes a look at the Western Conference to assess who might be looking to trade, whose selling and who is still kicking tires as the deadline nears. Minnesota Wild: Selling -- A bevy of unrestricted free agents could be moved at the deadline, including goalie Dwayne Roloson and defensemen Willie Mitchell, Andrei Zyuzin, Filip Kuba and Daniel Tjarnqvist. The were rumors out of Philadelphia that the Flyers were interested in veteran center Wes Walz.

Sabres Need To Add The ‘Right’ Player

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

Look, I understand the importance of chemistry. But adding the right player, a tough, selfless veteran with playoff experience, could enhance the Sabres' chemistry. When a team is on a roll, players often look for a sign from above, an acknowledgment that management believes they can make a title run. It's hard to imagine that Chris Drury and the other leaders wouldn't welcome a player who might put them over the top. True, the Sabres are young and there's no urgency to win right away. Regier shouldn't make a deal that compromises the future for one Stanley Cup run.

Sens Should Get Jokinen & Luongo

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Slam,

Barring some kind of deal before game time tonight, the Senators will face the Panthers with centre Olli Jokinen and goaltender Roberto Luongo in the Florida lineup. Both could be available, so why don't the Senators make a big, big, bold move and make a run at trading for both of them? Crazy? Truth is, the Senators are one of the few teams that could put a package together that would make such a blockbuster deal feasible for the Panthers.

Phoenix Has No Intention Of Trading Doan

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Airzona Republic,

Many of the rumors, Barnett said, are ridiculous. He cited those involving captain Shane Doan. "Shane Doan is a person that I haven't had a single, solitary discussion about with another team," Barnett said. "If I did, it would be a short discussion." In other words, Doan isn't going anywhere. "The primary focus . . . is on players whose contracts are expiring," Barnett said. "In most of those cases, we would prefer to re-sign the player, but only if the salary fits into our intended structure moving forward."

NHL Fails To Send Tough Message

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the News & Observer,

Cole, one of hockey's best players this season, suffered a fractured vertebra in his neck after an overly aggressive blindside hit by Orpik. ...Hurricanes players and coaches were upset -- rightfully so -- that the league's front office didn't send down a tougher message. But Orpik could have received a lifetime NHL ban and there would be at least one cheap shot delivered somewhere around the league tonight. Roughhouse play and hockey have been joined at the hip almost from the beginning. For the majority of its existence, the NHL has allowed more outright fist-fighting than the other three major team sports leagues combined.

Q & A With Clarke

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Philadelphia Inquirer,

Clarke sat down Monday to discuss his thoughts. Among the names out there for possible trades are those of Mark Recchi, Wes Walz, Derek Morris and Dallas Drake. The club would love to get Olli Jokinen from Florida - as would others - but he will command a high price. The Flyers have a little more than $2 million in salary-cap room. That's not a lot. Q: Is waiving two players an option to gain more cap space? A: You certainly don't want to do that. I don't think a player of that salary will be available, anyway. In my situation, you look at every option, just like every other team.

Forcing Florida To Not Make A Trade

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Miami Herald,

The Panthers' performance against the Senators, Luongo said, hopefully would ''force'' management not to pull the trigger on a trade, especially one involving himself or Jokinen. Martin said unloading players by Thursday's trade deadline would damage the Panthers' postseason push. ''We all like each other on this team,'' Van Ryn said. ``I don't think anybody wants to see anybody go. I think right now everybody is playing for each other and trying to make the playoffs.

Mixed Message

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Calgary Sun,

"I don't foresee our team doing anything, to be quite honest. I like what we have and that's pretty well it," Sutter said to the gathering. Yesterday, the media gathered were told Sutter wouldn't be available, with the explanation -- valid explanation -- being he was busy doing his GM duties. Instead, he spoke and even made a point to ensure one person who arrived late to the scrum had enough. Maybe he's fed-up with the asking price he's being given. So many teams believe they're still in a playoff race and are on the hunt for impact roster players. So, coming out with a bold statement now could be a firing shot across the bow as if to say he won't pay more than he wants to right now.
