Morning Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

“Oh, I’m sure there’s a lot of people with crayons right now writing down a parade route.  But it’s one game, and it’s part of the process. Tonight, we were fortunate enough to not make many mistakes and our attention to detail was pretty good. I’m really proud of the group, they paid attention. We’ve really only had eight practices and to have the game figured out somewhat tells you a lot about our players.

“They bought in, and we’ve had a lot of fun. They’re having a great time in there right now and they should—they beat the Stanley Cup champions. It’s a tremendous accomplishment and it can only do good things for our confidence, I hope.”

-Leafs coach Ron Wilson after defeating Detroit last night.  More on the Leafs/Wings from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.

The Birth Of A Hockey Blog

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike Boone at the Montreal Gazette,

Gazette editor-in-chief Andrew Phillips did not write “Internet Canadiens” on a napkin. But the creation of the Habs Inside/Out site parallels the Miami Vice saga in that a simple concept was developed into a project that has turned into a hit.

Here’s the backstory:

Hey Rocker, You Have The Cup Upside Down

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Puck Daddy of Yahoo Sports,

This was the proverbial slow-motion car crash; like on “The Price is Right,” when a contestant is about to put the $199 price tag on the tube of toothpaste and the crowd simultaneously shrieks “NO! NO!”

You saw him turn the Stanley Cup the wrong way, and you just wanted to reach through the television and flip it back before he put it down. If only someone on stage had helped him. Why couldn’t the drummer have lent a ... bit of moral support?

I am glad I didn’t watch a single second of anything but hockey last night.  I don’t need a rock concert to kick-off the season.

Malkin’s No Radulov

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Dave Staples at The Cult of Hockey,

Yes, Metallurg Magnitogorsk WAS offering Evgeni Malkin $11 million U.S., but he told them to forget it ... In a wide-ranging interview with the Russian Sovetskii Sport publication, Malkin said he told Metallurg he had a new, valid contract with the penguins, and “I’m not Radulov.”..
Asked about the assistant captain logo he now sports, he smiled: “Coach Therrien came up and said I should be wearing it ... I said I wasn’t sure about my English, and he told me you have to start one day, might as well do it now.”

Wings Raise The Banner

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bob Duff of the Windsor Star,

Nicklas Lidstrom smiled and waved to the Joe Louis Arena crowd.

Coach Mike Babcock fought the urge to cry as he accepted their accolades.

One by one, the Stanley Cup champion Detroit Red Wings walked the red carpet to be recognized for their achievement of last season.

The Five That Have Four

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Brian Compton of NHL.com,

For anyone involved with the Detroit Red Wings’ run to the 2008 Stanley Cup championship, Thursday night’s pre-game festivities at Joe Louis Arena will be an unforgettable experience.

For 5 players on the Wings’ roster, it will be the fourth time they get to partake in such a special event. Remarkably, in an age that features constant movement and salary cap casualties, 5 men have been in Motown for the 4 Stanley Cups that have been won since 1997.

The Good Guy Charade

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jim Kelley at Sportsnet,

...Even Flames President Ken King has said that Bertuzzi, having paid his penalty (an indefinite suspension that amounted to 20 NHL games, approximately $500,000 in lost salary, plus assault charges that yielded a year’s probation with community service and no criminal record), deserves a second chance. Despite polls that indicate a split opinion in that regard, King maintains that fans in Calgary are willing to give it to the notorious forward.

Funny, but I can’t help but wonder who speaks for Steve Moore.

Moore can’t say much on his own. The matter, more than four years removed from the terrible event, has still not made its way into court. Because of that, there is a moratorium regarding public comments on the case in Canada.

New Coach, Same Results

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Greg Stoda of the Palm Beach Post,

The Florida Panthers epitomize the old saying that the more things change, the more they remain the same.

And as their new season dawns - Florida opens Friday night at Carolina, and begins its home schedule Saturday night against Atlanta in BankAtlantic Center - the outlook for the Panthers looks numbingly familiar.

hey’ve changed coaches yet again, but there’s no reason to assume the Panthers will be appreciably different under Peter DeBoer than they were for three years under Jacques Martin, now solely the team’s general manager.
