The ‘Joe’ Will Be Rockin’

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

imagefrom NHL.com,

The National Hockey League (NHL) will launch the 2008-09 season with NHL Face-Off Rocks™ 2008, an opening day spectacular headlined by the world’s greatest arena rock band, Def Leppard, on Thursday, Oct. 9.  The multi-platinum selling rock band will open the night with a special performance of their arena-inspired hit single, “C’mon, C’mon” from Fox Theatre in Detroit, followed by the raising of the Detroit Red Wings’ 2008 Stanley Cup Championship banner prior to the start of their sold-out home opener against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Joe Louis Arena.

Looking to Turn it up on Broadway

Blog: Goal Line Report By Patrick Hoffman

As I mentioned in yesterday’s blog, I am a New York Rangers fan. My dad has had season tickets with the team since the 1989-90 season and I’ve been lucky and privileged to attend over 130 games at the Garden in my life

With that being said, this blog won’t be complete unless I talk about the Blueshirts every once in while. With that in mind, I would like to look at the team’s new offensive additions for this upcoming season: Markus Naslund and Nikolai Zherdev.

Welcome To Broadway Nikolai

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

Though his teammates competed for the puck, took the body and drove to the net as if this were a mid-season practice conducted by a seething coach Tom Renney - much like the one in Philadelphia last Jan. 30, for example - Zherdev displayed no urgency whatsoever.

The 23-year-old took short cuts throughout the charged morning scrimmage, once turning over the puck while dangling one-on-one three feet inside the offensive line, the giveaway leading to a goal-against, and consistently failed to move either the puck or his feet with any obvious purpose….

But after a second day of camp in which No. 13 was the laziest athlete on the ice.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

From Rich Hammond of Inside the Kings,

...now I have much more detail on the situation with Patrick O’Sullivan.  The Kings have requested that he not attend training camp until a deal is done. Lombardi explains, in the interview, why that’s the case. Second, when asked directly for an update on the contract negotiations, Lombardi said, ``We’re not very close. That’s the truth.’‘

NHLPA- Olympic Competition Is Critically Important

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,

Any attempt by the NHL to pull out of the Olympics after the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games will face a stiff fight from the NHL Players’ Association.

Paul Kelly, executive director of the NHLPA, said Thursday that “NHL management does not have the right to make unilateral statements that we will not participate in the Olympics again. Players have strong views about the issue.”

Draper and The Chief

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

No…not me.  But the Wings stopped by Selfridge Air Base today en route to TC.  I wasn’t aware there were any Navy Chiefs stationed up there, but I was wrong.

Panthers Plan A Pressure Type Game

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Brian Biggane of the Palm Beach Post,

DeBoer, who will begin his first camp Saturday as an NHL head coach, will institute an aggressive, puck-possession game patterned after that of the Stanley Cup champion Detroit Red Wings.

“We won’t be sitting back. We’re going to be in your face,” said Stephen Weiss, who enters camp as the team’s No. 1 center. He played the same role for DeBoer seven years ago at Plymouth of the Ontario Hockey League.

“Our bread and butter is going to be forechecking,” Weiss said. “It’s going to be up-tempo all the time.”
