Afternoon Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

The city of Detroit is a study in contrasts, as the NHL’s Red Wings are almost a textbook example of how to run a team over the past 10 years, while success has been all but impossible for the Lions to find in this decade.

-David Carroll of TSN.  Read on if you care, all Detroit Lions talk…

Good First Impression

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler of Game On,

OK, so the Rangers were trumped, 3-2, by the Lightning in Tampa Bay on Tuesday night. Big deal.

Wanna know what’s good about that? It didn’t cost New York a thing in the standings and the Lightning wound up with an invisible two points. In real life, that’s equated with zilch.

I can name you almost a dozen positives…

NIK ZHERDEV – Don’t know where the booshwah about his laziness comes from, but he sure looked galvanized throughout in Florida. He’s playing to his size (6-foot-2, 197 pounds), is hitting and was thoroughly “involved,” as they say in the broadcast booth.

WADE REDDEN – It will require time, but there’s no question that the Ottawa expatriate will be a significant asset on the backline.

All Vinny

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Craig Custance of the Sporting News,

SN: Was there an element of redemption there after losing the captaincy and getting it back?

Lecavalier: Yeah. It feels great. When they told me, I was excited. It really motivates me to—you have a letter on the sweater; it’s extra motivation.

SN: So what are guys saying about Barry Melrose behind the bench so far?

Lecavalier: From what I hear, he’s very, very positive. You would think a guy after 15 years would make a few mistakes, but guys told me he was right on with the lines and he was very aware of what was going on on the ice. Guys are really happy. I’m excited to play for him.

Enstrom Extended By Atlanta

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Ben Wright of Blueland Blog,

Short of pulling off a blockbuster trade, it’s the biggest move Don Waddell could possibly make heading into the season. Tobias Enstrom just signed a 4-year extension with the Thrashers, keeping in an Atlanta uniform through the 2012-13 season.

Blues Face Adversity

Blog: The Puck Stops Here By PuckStopsHere

Issues Continue For Blues

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

Remember Jacques Demers? The hugely popular and successful coach agreed to jump to the Detroit Red Wings WHILE HE WAS STILL COACHING THIS TEAM. In fairness to him, though, he did have to work for Harry Ornest, a true eccentric and avowed penny-pincher.

Remember Mike Liut and Joey Mullen? Of course you do, but they left prematurely in cost-saving deals ordered by Ornest. But at least Harry kept the Arena Cat on staff to keep the rodent population at The Arena under control.

Remember Scott Stevens?
