Not So Fast

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

So we’ve heard from a Digger and MacLeod today, each with roughly the same story.

St. James

Franzen underwent tests in Detroit Monday, and Nill hadn’t heard any news regarding results. He said the decision not to play Franzen tomorrow has already been made because the Wings lead the series, 3-0.

MacLeod

General manager Ken Holland said that the tests found nothing that needed treatment.

But Franzen’s headaches persist, so he’ll have to rest until they subside. He’s not able to work on conditioning (bike, etc) right now.

Franzen is officially listed as day-to-day.

Don’t Forget Conklin

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From the CP via TSN,

Much has been said and written about Evgeni Malkin’s superb play when Sidney Crosby went down with injury this season.

But it also should not be forgotten that the Pittsburgh Penguins, nearing a Stanley Cup final berth, may not even be here had it not been for how Ty Conklin stepped in for the injured Marc-Andre Fleury this season.

“Him and Gino, it was probably a coin flip to see who is our MVP this year,” defenceman Brooks Orpik said after Tuesday’s pre-game skate. “Without one of those two guys, we probably would have not made the playoffs. They were instrumental.”

Making a Difference Away From the Ice

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From John Bishop at BostonBruins.com, a note that The Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care celebrated the opening of The Neely Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplant Unit.

The Neely family launched the Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care in 1995 after the passing of their parents Marlene and Michael Neely from cancer. The Neely Foundation has raised more than $17 million from donations of all sizes, impacted thousands of families and continues to dedicate itself to designing, funding, and completing projects with immediate and tangible results.

“I know that neither of us ever dreamed that we would have this kind of impact when we set out on this mission some 14-plus years ago to honor our parents,” said Scott Neely, before turning to his brother to say, “Cam, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you have done to help us achieve our mission to be able to, in such a meaningful and significant way, honor the memory of mom and dad.”

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jim Kelley of Sportsnet,

The simple question might go something like this: Where have you gone Ron Wilson, Joel Quenneville, Paul Maurice, John Paddock, Glen Hanlon, Bob Hartley, Dave Lewis, Jacques Martin and Jim Playfair?

The more complex question: Where are you going National Hockey League?

Hypothetically Speaking

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

If you’re wondering, based on no bias or jinxability whatsoever, when the Finals may start?  John Niyo’s got your answer.

Sounds like the earliest possible date for Game 1 would be a week from today—May 20. But the Flyers will have something to say about that tonight. Figure May 22, May 24 and probably May 27 as the other possible start dates, depending on how long the East finals—and the West, I suppose—last.

Tale of Two Staals

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

To clear up some conflicting reports and rumors, a quick note about Eric’s and Jordan Staal’s status in the wake of the unfortunate death of their grandfather. 

Eric Staal has left Team Canada at the World Championships to join his family and will understandably be missing his game scheduled for Wednesday.  Jordan Staal is said to be playing tonight for the Pittsburgh Penguins, then flying home briefly tomorrow to attend the funeral.  He isn’t expected to miss any games.

Puck Tracking Update

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

A couple days ago, Steve pointed to the story about the interest Versus might have in “puck tracking” (i.e. flashbacks to the infamous glowing puck).  Today, William Houston at the Globe & Mail notes that any such plans would be limited:

Versus is pursuing a puck-tracking technology that, according to USA Today, could be used as soon as the next NHL season. This would be for replays rather than live coverage. Anything involving a live application - such as the FoxTrax from the 1990s - would require the NHL’s approval and participation.

*hat-tip to Puck Daddy for the pointer
