Russo’s Target Today Is…

...Ken Daniels and Mickey Redmond, the Detroit Red Wings TV broadcast crew.

via Russo’s Rants,

Wonder if the Wings play-by-play guy would be whining about A TWO-MINUTE MINOR for tripping in a 5-zip game if Gaborik was paralyzed?

The play-by-play guy should be embarrassed. Hasek did not lead with his stick. He flung his body into Gaborik’s legs — whether Gaborik’s head was down or not — trying to protect a shutout.

It was reckless play on Hasek’s part and it could have been a catastrophic finish at the Joe last night.

The more I listen to regional telecasts on Center Ice, it just amazes me how some of these local announcers lack any objectivity whatsoever.

Hockey Stick Sculpture

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

imageFrom Sunday’s New York Times,

“As a retail team, we asked, what should a hockey store be?” said Boge, a principal at Gensler, which was the interior designer of the new headquarters of The New York Times. “Everybody started reminiscing about skating in a rink or a pond, playing high school hockey or going to games. We remember the sticks, playing or watching the game. And people respond to the sticks. It might be from bending or shaping or taping them.”

He added: “We wanted something that said, this is the center of it all. This is where it happens.”

Each ring of the sculpture contains more sticks than the one above it. The top tier has 100, the middle one 145 and the lower one 190, so the full entity feels like something that is spreading its bulk toward those viewing it. The hollowed-out plastic sticks are smaller than regulation, but the blades are standard size. In each tier, the sticks are grouped in fives, with each stick hanging at a slightly different level than the others to create the illusion of movement — a “swishing quality,” Boge said. The structure is held together with an intricate rigging that he compared to an upside-down umbrella.

Leafs Rebound

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from CBC,

What a difference two weeks makes.

Fourteen days ago, the Toronto Maple Leafs hit rock bottom with a dismal 5-1 defeat in Phoenix. The loss, Toronto’s third straight, dropped the team to 8-11-5 and had fans and media alike waiting — some hoping — for the axe to fall on general manager John Ferguson and head coach Paul Maurice.

Fuuny how some MSM folks and one particular “entertainer” told us the end was near.  Now what do they have to say?

“That Is One Crazy Motherf…”

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Updated 1051 EST: Just for fun, read through the list of comments at Russo’s Rant’s blog from last night.  Amazing how the tone changed over the course of three hours.  Includes a good comment from Matt Saler from OtW.

————

I put that in quotes because I guarantee those were the exact words shouted, whispered in awe or uttered from father to son accompanied by a hearty back slap last night at 2153 EST. 

And it’s true.  With a shutout just moments away and the memory of watching Chris Osgood start seven consecutive games still very fresh in his cluttered mind, our Czech Miracle of Insanity returned to his sociopathic self and gave us a wakeup call.  I’m almost shocked he didn’t point at the cameras after his takedown of Gaborik and say…

Devereaux Enjoying The Ride

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Globe and Mail,

“When you’re down you sit back and wonder what’s ahead, but that has made my time here that much more enjoyable,” said Devereaux, who has a modest two-game point streak going. “With Toronto, as a player on the outside, you always wonder what it is like to play in this hockey-mad city. It’s turned into a special experience.

“It’s been a crazy ride sometimes, but I’m so thankful to be playing here in this city where it is exciting every day, win or lose. It’s a challenge, but a challenge you relish daily.”

Gaborik Head Over Heels

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

The video describes the action.  Hasek received a 2 minute tripping call. 

Hasek commented he asked the ref about the penalty call and was told, Come on Dom, the score is 5-0, lets just finish up.  Hasek was concerned about his shutout which he did get.

Jeff Carter Only Worried About On-Ice Play

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Philly Burbs,

Don’t show me the money. At least not yet. That’s the vibe Jeff Carter gives off when questioned about the possibility of beginning contract talks now, rather than wait for his three-year deal to expire in June….

He’s a restricted free agent, so there’s really no urgency to begin negotiations. Like Mike Richards and R.J. Umberger, whose contracts also run out in June, there’s no need for Carter to think about money now.

“There’s nothing I can do about it, just go out and play,” Carter said at Friday morning’s skate. “It doesn’t really matter to me.”
