Kozlov Out With Leg Injury

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Tarik El-Bashir of Capitals Insider,

Viktor Kozlov could miss two weeks with an undisclosed left leg injury, General Manager George McPhee said moments again. Kozlov appeared to injure his knee when he was hit along the boards by Rob Davison in the second period of last night’s 5-1 win over Vancouver.

“We suspect it will be a couple of weeks,” McPhee said. “But we’ll know more in a couple of weeks.”

Getting The Stars Out Of Their Funk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Razor With An Edge,

So what would Razor do to snap them out of their little funk?

Good Cop nurturing.

And

Bad Cop fanny kicking.

Good Cop wants to let them work through this, allow the leaders to grab ahold of the group and demand more.

Bad Cop wants to spark a flame thrower and singe some fuzzy arse hairs.

Just Wrong About Cherepanov

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Gare Joyce at Sportsnet,

They took satisfaction and considered themselves validated when Brandon Sutter, Colton Gillies and Milan Lucic ran Cherepanov and the Canadians knocked out him out of the Summit Series in the summer of ’07. Cherepanov had a concussion. Sutter had his own diagnosis: “He’s a pretty soft player and when you hit him, he doesn’t like it.”

They said that he stayed in Russia instead of coming over to the NHL because the Summit Series put a scare into him. One account: “The alleged Russian star maybe never want to go anywhere near the New York Rangers, where [sic] he’ll have to face those big hitters in the NHL.”

At best, they’re xenophobic stereotypes. At worst, slander. Maybe they’ll be cleaned up in remembrances and tributes. Maybe they’ll be given an extra layer of veils.

Can The Flames Find Their Game Again

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jim Kelley at Sportsnet,

The disheartening thing that comes off the Game 2 loss is that the Flames were at home and that they tried hard, and they still didn’t look all that better than they did in Game One or than they did last season.

In many ways, they looked the same, a fact that did not go unnoticed by Flames captain Jarome Iginla.

“There were many good things out there, but we obviously had some breakdowns,” he said. “Again.”

It’s that one-word, “again”, that seems to accurately size up the plight of the Flames in this early going.

Time For The NHL In The Northwest

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from David Gerig of the Whitworthian,

Hockey takes a back seat to the big three sports in the country, but even more evidently here in the Northwest. Seattle sports fans might be surprised to find out that their very own Seattle Metropolitans won the first United States Stanley Cup back in 1917 in the Pacific Coast League. It’s the same city and region that has ignored and has been ignored by the NHL ever since….

The strong minor league hockey teams make one wonder why there has not been a professional hockey team here in the Northwest. Ironically, there is a “Northwest” division in the NHL, but it doesn’t include a team from the Northwest United States - with the closest United States team being the Colorado Avalanche – just 20 hours southeast.

So why is it that the Northwest United States is not getting any love from the NHL? I’m out to investigate this crime and find out the main factors that contribute to the lack of a professional hockey team in Seattle and surrounding regions.

One Team Will Get Their First Win Tonight

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jean Lefebvre of the Calgary Herald,

While that initial victory has been elusive for the Flames and Avalanche, the reasons for the early struggles are pretty easy to pin down.

Start with the guys between the pipes—Colorado’s Peter Budaj (.795) and Calgary Miikka Kiprusoff (.807) have the worst save percentages among goaltenders who have played at least one full game.

On the special-teams side of things, the Flames’ power play is worst in the league, as is Colorado’s penalty-killing.

Enough With The Celebrations

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Greg Couch of the Chicago Sun-Times,

It’s probably too early to be this pessimistic. But a few more weeks of this, and I’m going to be feeling awfully gullible.

The Hawks are still that fresh, emerging story. Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane can still be Chicago’s iconic combo in a few years.

So the Hawks are still a curiosity. But they have to be more than that now.

They have to be a hockey team.

Time to win. There’s a slogan.
