Video- When The Video Conference Call Turned Into Old Time Hockey Talk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Michael Traikos of the National Post,

At first, there was awkward silence. No one knew what to do or say. Toews wondered aloud if everyone should also hang up. No one did.

Instead, they started talking hockey. Specifically, about the classic NHL games that the various sports networks have been airing these days.

“What was I watching the other day?” said Pietrangelo. “They had a game from like 30 years ago.”

“It was Chicago-Pittsburgh, wasn’t it?” asked Toews.

“Yeah,” said Pietrangelo. “It’s crazy how different the game is. It’s like, oh man, it’s changed.”

“It’s pretty fun to watch the old ones,” said Josi. “The goalies are the best part.”

Toews then suggested a rabbit hole for the others to travel down.

“Go on YouTube and watch Rock ’em Sock ’em,” the Blackhawks captain said of the popular Don Cherry-narrated hockey videos. “I’m sure you guys had that growing up. But when they play the highlights of a whole playoff series, it’s just one hit after another. It’s like really one suspension after another. Unbelievable.”

Great Wings Players, But No Cup While In Detroit

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Here is a look at the 20 most notable Red Wings who never won a Cup in Detroit.

This includes only players who played multiple seasons with the Red Wings, so the likes of Daniel Alfredsson, Mike Modano, Darryl Sittler and Borje Salming weren’t listed. Their ranking is weighted heavily toward their accomplishments in Detroit.

1. Norm Ullman

He scored 20 or more goals 16 times during his Hall-of-Fame career. He joined the Red Wings one year after they won the Cup in 1955 and was traded to Toronto one year after the Maple Leafs won their most recent Cup in 1967.

2. Marcel Dionne

After four strong seasons in Detroit, he was traded to Los Angeles, where he signed the richest deal in the NHL at the time ($300,000 a season) and remained one of the game’s best offensive players for many years. He ranks fifth all-time in goals (731) and sixth in points (1,771). His teams won only three playoff series and never advanced past the second round.

Imagine A Long-Term CBA With The NHL And NHLPA

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic,

In talking to people all over the hockey industry over the past week, player agents and team executives, there’s one growing sentiment at least some share and I agree with: The NHL and NHLPA need to find long-term CBA stability out of this to mitigate these turbulent times.

“If there is no (season) resumption then yes there will need to be a complex negotiation about moving forward,” veteran player agent J.P. Barry of CAA Sports said. “The fact that we are currently in the middle of CBA extension negotiations is probably fortunate timing. Different options could include a possible longer CBA term that would include working with the cap over the next few years to address the escrow situation. I’m optimistic that the current relationship between the parties will result in a creative solution.”

Imagine. Labour peace. For once.
