Canucks' Burrows has excuses, won't use them, as goal famine reaches 22 games

The biggest goal Alex Burrows has scored among his 171 in the National Hockey League, playoffs included, came in the playoffs of 2011. It was so big that it earned itself a nickname – 'The Slay-The-Dragon Goal' – and anyone who follows the Vancouver Canucks knows exactly why. Cue the harp music: Game 7 overtime vs the Chicago Blackhawks, first round. Burrows picks off...

What Happens To These UFAs

from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated, ... here’s a look at some of the key names out there and what might lie ahead for each. Ron Hainsey There are whispers that his role as an NHLPA mouthpiece during the lockout has led to the 32-year-old defender being blackballed. Take a look at where Chris Campoli’s principled stand landed him and you can see that there just...

The Alternatives (or lack of)

Do you own a pair of skates? Give Glen a call, you could be of help! Yesterday we discussed how the Rangers may eventually look outside of the organisation for help on the blueline. Unless you think Stu Bickel, Matt Gilroy or Steve Eminger are the answer then it’s perhaps inevitable that the Rangers are on the lookout. Of course, this is assuming that team brass do not want Girardi...

Quite The Quandary, Eh?

The Emperor pointed us to a ditty this morning that shows Tick Tock is on the hunt for a "veteran defenseman".  Actually, he's probably already bagged him but is waiting the normal Holland amount of time to announce the deal. Who is it?  No clue.  Chris Campoli's being tossed around. And that's just not good. Continue reading "Quite The Quandary, Eh?"

Campoli Still Out Of Work

from Michael Grange of Sportsnet, Hockey is back and fears about its bubble bursting can seemingly be put aside for now. Interesting that one of the architects of its return -- hammered out in a 16-hour, overnight bargaining session just a week ago -- spent the first day of hockey season at home, on the couch, watching the NFL playoffs and waiting for the phone to ring asking...

Last Night’s Memo To The Players

from Mike Halford of Pro Hockey Talk, In addition to the ongoing issues of revenue sharing and the league’s “Make Whole” idea, the NHLPA has concerns about the NHL’s stance on contract length, unrestricted free agent eligibility and arbitration processes — issues that “significantly reduce a player’s bargaining power and give the owner much more leverage over a...

Fehr Needs To Close The Deal

from Michael Grange of Sportsnet, As one player agent told me this week, "With all due respect to Don Fehr, this is when he really earns his money. A barrel full of monkeys could get this to 90 per cent of the way done. Now he's got to take it home." He started in earnest on Tuesday in Manhattan in a seven-hour meeting at an undisclosed midtown location that...

CBA Negotiations Continue; A Modest Proposal

Mario Tama/Getty Images   By: Tyler J. Altemose (@TJamesAltemose) Chris Campoli, representing the NHLPA, met with the media Thursday as CBA negotiations continued. He explained that the sides discussed “hockey issues” within separate sub-committees, all of which he considered “equally important” to the process. Although Campoli and the NHLPA expects to continue working...

Some Early Sunday Morning Hockey Talk

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, • The confusing part of the Suter decision: He didn’t win in Nashville with Shea Weber beside him and Pekka Rinne in goal. He didn’t win with Barry Trotz coaching. What are the odds he doesn’t win anything in Minnesota? • The weird dichotomy of the NHL: There are more quality players in play, more teams unhappy with their rosters...

Two Habs tidbits

Obviously a quiet time for Montreal news, given that, ya know, we missed the playoffs. However, two bits of news: 1) Nashville’s Francis Bouillon acknowledged that he would listen if Montreal called this summer. A fan favourite, Bouillon was jettisoned by Gainey & Co. in 2009. However, he was a fan favourite, and if he’s on the market, my money is on the Canadiens giving...

Montreal Canadiens vs. Canucks blog: love ’em & hate ‘em

French Toast The dog days of March are here. The Vancouver Canucks have nothing left to play for in a division long since wrapped up, and the prospect of another long, punishing playoff run as seen the effort levels lately drop to a more manageable peak. It’s a tad disappointing to see these losses, but who will really remember these games once the playoffs start? On to the Love...

Kamal Panesar: Canadiens-Wild Post-Game Notes: Habs Grab Strange Shootout Win

OK, that was a bizarre game. Ryan White dropping the gloves with Stephane Veilleux only 10 seconds in? Check. Alexei Emelin throwing the hit of the night on his own teammate, Erik Cole? Check. White dropping the gloves with Veilleux, again, after the former decided to slash Carey Price. But the kicker on that was White punching Chris Campoli in the back as the threesome...

Habs deadline, surprisingly, a bust

So trade deadline 2012 came and went with a whimper, and not a bang, for the Montreal Canadiens. The Habs got the day started for all with the trade of Andrei Kostitsyn to Nashville for a 2nd and a 5th (the same conditional pick they had dealt in the Hal Gill deal) but…that was it. Mathieu Darche, Chris Campoli, Travis Moen, they are all here to stay, Habs fans. Incredible, isn’t...

Max Pacioretty and David Desharnais scored shootout goals, and Carey Price stopped both attempts he faced in the Montreal Canadiens' 4-3 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Friday night. Chris Campoli, Scott Gomez and Tomas Kaberle scored in regulation to help the Canadiens win their third straight road game and improve to 5-1-1 in their past seven overall. Montreal (24-25-10...

Travis Moan to Detroit? No Thanks.

Updated 4:30 PM. We took a little break over the weekend, but one thing that didn’t was trade rumors.  So what are the Wings looking for? “To me, if we could get another heavy winger, or heavy forward, or D — those would all be good things to help you,” Babcock said, as reported by the Detroit News. “I put together a wish list every year, this time of year, and then...

Report from Team 990: Chris Campoli dealt to Tampa Bay for a 4th round pick

As heard on the Team 990 on the Canadiens post-game show. Not sure what their source for the rumour is, but they are currently looking into it. I stress that this is only a rumour at this point, but Campoli has complained recently about his ice time, and as noted many times on Kukla’s Korner the Habs have far too many defencemen on the roster. More to come… UPDATE: Nick Kypreos...

Ty Anderson: An Epic Sequel? Hatred bonds B's and Canucks

It’s hard to imagine how meaningless yesterday’s game could have been. If not for a Chris Campoli turnover in overtime of Game 7, or a defensive zone face-off loss by Tomas Plekanec last April, there’s a good -- strike that, great -- chance that yesterday’s meeting between the Boston Bruins and Vancouver Canucks is just another ho-hum January matinee.
