NHL Day 21

SPIN 1

"This is not about 'winning' or 'losing' a negotiation. This is about finding a solution that preserves long-term health & stability." -- NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly on cancelling the first chunk of regular-season games.

SPIN 2

"If the owners truly cared about the game and the fans, they would lift the lockout and allow the season to begin on time. We hope we will soon have a willing negotiating partner." -- NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr.

A FEW ANGRY MEN

"I'm definitely upset. It's time to play hockey. I'm angry that this doesn't get done. It's like the NHL isn't willing to negotiate or compromise in anyway to help get a deal done. That's where the frustration comes in for me."-- R.J. Umberger, Columbus Blue Jackets.

"We can't really counter what they're offering. It feels, right now, like if we don't give everything that they want, it doesn't really matter. And we will never do that. It's tough to negotiate with yourself, basically." -- Henrik Zetterberg, Detroit Red Wings.

ON THE MOVE

NHL player movement, some rumoured, some confirmed:

Joe Pavelski, San Jose, Dinamo Minsk (KHL)

Claude Giroux, Philadelphia, Eisbaren Berlin (Germany)

Danny Briere, Philadelphia, Eisbaren Berlin (Germany)

Andrew Ladd, Winnipeg, Avangard Omsk (KHL)

Michael Grabner, New York Islanders, EC VSV Villach (Austria)

Andreas Nodl, Carolina, HC Innsbruck (Austria)

T.J. Galiardi, San Jose, Bietigheim (Germany)

Lauri Korpikoski, Phoenix, TPS Turku (Finland)

JUST FYI

Grabner's arrival to his new Austrian club, located in his home town, came after sponsors donated to help pay for the insurance on his NHL contract.

Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer with this tidbit: the Flyers have 18,200 season-ticket holders. To date, FIVE have cancelled them because of the lockout.

HMMM...

Even though he is in St. John's at IceCaps training camp, Dmitry Chesnokov is reporting that Ak-Bars head coach Valery Belov has said Winnipeg Jet centre Alex Burmistrov, along with Alex Emelin of the Montreal Canadiens will 'possibly join the club soon.'

ON THE DIAL

Sportsnet announced Thursday it will be showing three AHL games in the next two weeks, none of them involving the IceCaps.

KUDOS FOR MARK

Sports Media Canada announced Thursday that Winnipeg Jets owner Mark Chipman has been named its Executive of the Year. The award will be presented at a luncheon Oct. 16 at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto.

In the spring of 2011, Chipman, along with business partner David Thomson, purchased the Atlanta Thrashers and relocated the team to Winnipeg.
