KK- Time For Another KK Donation Drive

The last KK Donation Drive kicked off on October 5, 2020 during the pandemic and was a success.

Fast forward to today with another Donation Drive.  Although this past season was limited in games played, people did come back to KK to get the latest hockey news.

For those of you who wish to donate I prefer payment via PayPal  and also have a GoFundMe account set up too.  Another payment method I'm using is Zelle, which is a way to send a donation through your bank.  The email address to use is pk at kuklaskorner dot com

KK members who have donated in the past will receive at least a year of no ads on KK with a donation of $20.

First time donors will receive the same benefit with a donation of at least $25.

Any amount you can afford is greatly appreciated. 

From revenue being down almost 90% during the pandemic I have seen growth of incoming revenue and visitors since the NHL started playing in January.  It continues to grow to this day.

Thanks again.

This post will remain at the top of KK for at least the next few days.

A Four-Year Deal For Taylor Hall In Boston

BOSTON - Boston Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney announced today, July 23, that the team has signed forward Taylor Hall  to a four-year contract with an annual NHL cap hit of $6 million.

"The Bruins are excited that Taylor wanted to remain a Boston Bruin and we are thrilled to have signed him to a multi-year contract," said Sweeney. "He is an impact player that brings speed, scoring, skill and two-way commitment to our lineup. He fit seamlessly into our locker room and will be an integral part of our organization's goal to compete for the Stanley Cup."

Hall, 29, was acquired by the Bruins at the 2021 NHL trade deadline. In 16 regular season games with the Bruins, Hall recorded eight goals and six assists for 14 points. In 11 playoff games, the 6-foot-1, 206-pound forward tallied three goals and two assists for five points.

30 Trade Targets

from Frank Seravalli of The Daily Faceoff,

Happy NHL Draft Day 2021. There’s plenty on the move, so hurry up and dive in to read about the 30 Trade Targets in play before everything changes.

1. Jack Eichel
Center, Buffalo Sabres
Age: 24
Contract: 5 years remaining at $10 million AAV
Scoop: The asking price for Eichel seems to be “fantastical” by all accounts. Teams are on high alert in the hours leading up to the first round of the NHL Draft. The Rangers, for one, were calling around to teams inquiring about a pick inside the Top 10 – believed to be part of the ask from Buffalo to get into the Eichel ballpark. Buffalo wants a futures-type transaction with multiple picks and prospects. It’s still difficult to imagine a scenario in which Eichel returns to the Sabres next season, but this weekend should be a strong indicator of the odds on that.

2. Seth Jones
Right Defense, Columbus Blue Jackets
Age: 26
Contract: 1 year remaining at $5.4 million AAV
Scoop: There is no doubt the Chicago Blackhawks are working hard to pry Jones loose from Columbus. The belief is Chicago is not willing to part with either Alex DeBrincat or Kirby Dach in a deal. The leverage Chicago has is there are few markets where Jones is willing to sign long-term – and that have the ability or interest in trading for him. Chicago is one of them. The difficulty for Columbus is teams do not want to pay twice, both the acquisition cost to get him, then the cost to sign him.
