Melnyk Says He Can’t Invest Much More In The Senators

from David Reevely of the Ottawa Citizen, Slapped by an overwhelming city hall vote against his plans to build a casino at his Kanata hockey arena, Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk said he won’t be able to invest any more deeply in the team or in the city.

Traded Too Early

from Sean McIndoe of Grantland, Let’s just say that NHL history is filled with examples of teams giving up on young players too soon. So many, in fact, that you could probably fill out an entire roster using nothing but future stars that some unfortunate team let slip away. And today, that’s exactly what we’re going to do.... Wingers Cam Neely, 21 (Vancouver Canucks...

Remembering Don Baizley

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail, In the summer of 1993, after Paul Kariya was chosen fourth overall in the NHL entry draft, a steady stream of player agents made the trek to his North Vancouver home, hoping to represent the budding hockey superstar. Mr. Kariya was a student at the University of Maine and so technically couldn’t sign a contract until he turned pro...

HHOF Worthy?

from Luke DeCock of the News & Observer, Is Rod Brind’Amour worthy of inclusion in the Hockey Hall of Fame? Without question. It just won’t be this year. Brind’Amour, who waited 16 seasons to win his first Stanley Cup, captaining the Carolina Hurricanes to the feat in 2006, will have to wait at least one more year for induction into the Hall after being left out...

Blue Jackets Know What Is Needed To Win

from Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch, A solitary veteran player dropped by the OhioHealth Ice Haus for a quick look at the Blue Jackets’ prospect-campers yesterday afternoon. “I can’t wait to play in the (Eastern Conference),” R.J.

Oilers Lineup A Work In Progress

from Joanne Ireland of the Edmonton Journal, When he looks at his roster, as it sits today, there are still deficiencies as far as Edmonton Oilers general manager Craig MacTavish is concerned. But with the current state of the NHL trade market, and little in the way of answers on the free-agent market, he said on Tuesday that he may just to have to accept the fact that he...

Canucks Still A Quality Team

from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province, Consider Alex Edler to start. Assuming he’s still here, could he play any worse? There’s only one way to go, and that’s up. How about Zack Kassian? Could he contribute much less than he did last season? Imagine what playing half or a full season with the Sedin twins might do to his confidence, level of commitment and enjoyment...

Red Wings overnight report: rounding up Chelios/Shanahan Hall of Fame news, prospect talk and Homer!

I am delighted that former Red Wings defenseman Chris Chelios and Brendan Shanahan were named part o the Hockey Hall of Fame's 2013 induction class today (ditto for the Bettman dig), but I sure as hell picked an awful travel day, because two players with long and storied careers being feted for their accomplishments = enough stories and tributes to keep someone who's "...

Custance: ‘Wining and dining’ window’s trial run endured some ups, downs and murky boundaries

The Red Wings were one of the beneficiaries of the NHL's new "wining and dining" window in which teams are actually legally allowed to speak with unrestricted free agents-to-be regarding their possible "fits" in new cities. This used to go on in generalities broached by players agents and GM's, and the extra-legal pre-free agency chit chats about, say...

Chairman Mao shouldn’t ruin a good day? Damn straight, Cheli. Damn straight.

I hadn't checked any hockey news between pulling out of the driveway in South Lyon and the Burger King in Grayling, Michigan, mostly because I was pretty damn sure that Chris Chelios and Brendan Shanahan would indeed be named to the Hockey Hall of Fame's 2013 induction class today. After wolfing down a hurried burger in Grayling, I checked my email, and the NHL's press...

Bowman, Yzerman, Fetisov, Larionov, Robitaille, Hull and now two more today. It shouldn't have come as a surprise. Maybe it's unpleasant for many of you, because of the hard fact their induction represents, but Brendan Shanahan and Chris Chelios aren't even the end of the line.   The 2002 Red Wings were the greatest hockey team of all time, and the legacy they left...

Watching The Sports Channels

from Austin Karp of SportsBusiness Daily, ESPN averaged 1.3 million viewers in primetime during Q2, down 32% from the same period last year and the lowest primetime audience for the net in at least seven years. The 32% drop was the biggest decline among cable sports networks. ESPN was no doubt hurt by a sharp drop for its NBA Playoff coverage. The net’s 17 postseason telecasts...
