Dater’s Daily: Nazem Kadri, Islanders Rumors Get Stronger



Colorado Avalanche

A good Tuesday to all. We’re now into August, which means: there will be Colorado Avalanche hockey next month. Next. Month. I remember this weird feeling so well, having covered the first two Avalanche Cup teams (I’m 3-0 in Cup Finals as an Avalanche writer in my looonnng career. DaterJinx? Ha!). These are the dog days when it comes to hockey news, but we still have some unanswered questions about what the Avalanche roster will look like next month and/or into October. Let’s do some notes, flotsam and jetsam:

  • My colleague at NYI Hockey Now, and up-and-coming kid named Stefen Rosner, posted a story yesterday which delves more into what his sources are saying about the Nazem Kadri situation (NYI Hockey Now).
  • We’ll have some cool new things to unveil with the National Hockey Now family of sites soon. A hint: you’ll get more for your money.
  • We had an all-time high in traffic in July for my humble little site. Nearly 700,000 visits. Thank YOU everyone.
  • A good response to a 20% off subscription sale too. So, I’ll offer it again: Want a $24.99 full-year price on a Colorado Hockey Now subscription, instead of $29.99? Use the promo code word 5off in the checkout box here to get the deal (checkout box)
  • I know this about the Colorado Avalanche, if they lose Kadri: they have a plan in place, to move quickly. Exactly what that is? Yeah, still a $64,000 question (look it up kids).
  • Philly Hockey Now: There is a relatively new stat to measure a goalie’s true value, which is Goals Saved Above Expected.  And it shows that the Philadelphia Flyers’ Carter Hart needs to improve significantly this season.
  • Kirill Kaprizov is back in the U.S. after worried reports said he might be trapped in Russia because of Putin Politics. (Washington Hockey Now)
  • Nick Suzuki has a weird wrinkle to his new contract in Montreal (Montreal Hockey Now)
  • Could Milan Lucic make a return to Boston? (Boston Hockey Now)
  • More on Nathan MacKinnon’s plans for a parade in Halifax, Nova Scotia, at some point this summer (CBC)
  • Interesting interview with former NHLPA boss Paul Kelly, on the challenges ahead for the players (Hockey News)
  • Grading every team’s left wing depth (TSN)
