Datsyuk & Zetterberg To Be Split

18 September 2009 - 05:05 AM

The article is here.


Ultimately, it's probably a good idea. It's a great insurance policy to be able to throw D & Z together if needed. With the Leino-Flip-Williams line playing well, and Homer, Franzen, Cleary & Bert not being natural centres... Mule has some experience playing at C, but he's not big on puck distribution.

Also, I posted this because of the funny undertones...

"The Red Wings have one of the best emergency responses in the NHL in being able to throw superstars Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg together when needed. But given that both are natural centers, it makes sense, for now, to use each at that position, which in Zetterberg's case means he gets to play between two thick-bodied wingers with great shots.

Zetterberg, who was dealing with a tender groin during training camp, will make his exhibition debut tonight against the Rangers at Joe Louis Arena centering newcomer Todd Bertuzzi (6-3, 240) and Dan Cleary (6-0, 210)."

That's some quality journalism, Helene.

KHL decides to register Hudler's contract.

Kontinental Hockey League Official Statement
Considering the facts that:

- there is no arrangement or any agreements between Kontinental Hockey League and National Hockey League on restricted free agents transfers;

- NHL refuse to cancel the registration of a contract between Florida Panthers and Yevgeny Dadonov (contractual and sporting rights on this player belong to KHL club Traktor Chelyabinsk);

- Jiri Hudler has no valid contract with any National Hockey League club;

- Detroit Red Wings have no permission from NHL to negotiate with Dynamo Moscow on Jiri Hudler transfer rights;

- Vancouver Canucks intend to sign a deal with Sergei Shirokov (contractual and sporting rights on this player belong to KHL club CSKA);

KHL has to take the following decisions:

- to register Jiri Hudler contract with Dynamo Moscow on July 30, 2009 regardless of the results of arbitration hearing on his case in National Hockey League and to provide player with the right to choose the league he wants to play in.

- to affirm the KHL readiness to start at any time and in any form negotiations with the NHL mediated by IIHF on the restricted free agents status and other issues of the General Agreement on players transfers between KHL and NHL.
