Hot Blues

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP,

The Blues, who play the Flames on Tuesday and the Oilers on Friday, are 8-1-1 in their last 10 games and playing some of the best hockey in the league right now.

“We, as a team, feel we can play with anybody,” Blues president John Davidson told The Canadian Press on Monday. “And we should feel that way. Last year we were just hoping to survive and stay in the hunt as long as we could. This year it’s different.”

The 15-8-1 Blues sit fourth in the tightly contested Western Conference, making a major statement two months into the season after missing the playoffs two straight years.

“And we’re going to be around for a long time,” said Davidson. “We’ve got eight players 24 and younger. So we’re going in the right direction. We feel good about the way we play the game, we feel good about the way we’re committed. Our team is well prepared.”

It’s A Wonderful Game - Not

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,

The NHL’s latest episode of Tales Of Contentment, this one coming out of the league’s Board of Governors meetings, had me laughing myself to tears late last week.

In case you missed it, the overwhelming, underlying message was positively Alfred E. Newmanesque in its simplicity: What, us worry?

“I think it’s a wonderful game the way it is today,” said Rangers GM Glen Sather, who also thought his Blueshirts were a playoff team from 2000-2004.

Sorry to go against you Adam, but maybe a tweak to the goalie equipment is all that I want to see.  I also believe the majority of KK readers are happy with the game as we know today.

Daly Reviews “MVP”

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from CBC,

The NHL is OK with CBC injecting more drama into the sport of hockey.

The NHL requested and received a sneak peek of MVP, a salacious prime-time soap about the lives of hockey players, which premieres Jan. 18 on CBC.

“While it certainly could be interpreted not to cast professional hockey players in the most positive light, I also understand that it’s fiction,” NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly wrote to CBC in an e-mail.

“And I have enough faith in the Canadian public to see it as such. The CBC understood why we’d want to see a copy.”

Avery Gets His Retraction

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP,

...Avery denied making the comments and his lawyers served libel notices against the Fan and the Toronto Star over the matter. Berger voiced the 46-second retraction that aired Monday.

“It was my intention only to report accurately on what transpired during the pre-game warmup,” said Berger. “Based on Mr. Avery’s clear statement that he made no such remarks, my information and therefore my reporting does not appear to have been accurate.

“I truly regret reporting that Mr. Avery made any such comments. I apologize to Mr. Avery for having done so. And I hereby retract my comments about what transpired during the pre-game warmup on Nov. 10, 2007.”

update 8:22pm, Avery was just interviewed on MSG, said he is not done with this subject.  He doesn’t feel any better than he did before the statement read by Berger today and said the media cannot hide behind a pen and get away with it.  He plans to continue his fight on this topic.

CNN has video of a Zamboni catching fire. There’s little audio, no report, and no links to a report.

A quick search led me to find the rink was in Aston, PA: Zamboni fire forces Aston ice rink evacuation.
