Garage Bound For Game 3

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

So, the IwoCPO family’s all moved in and happy. Children are tucked away and content.

One problem: after a day of intense negotiations, cable will not be installed until tomorrow. I’m listening to the game via Sirius in a garage full of boxes.

The train is fired up and chugging, as am I. This wil be an open post all game long for those who would like to contribute.

Emery Proves It

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Damien Cox at ESPN,

As a goalie, many in the hockey world expected him to hit a wall in these playoffs, but for the most part he has played “Like Wall,” the nickname once given to Latvian goalie ace Arturs Irbe.
After a shaky outing in the opening game of the second round against New Jersey, he hasn’t allowed more than three goals in a game since and is now 11-2 in the postseason. When it matters, he has been the Emery Board, nailed across the front of the net, more than good enough.

New Asst. In Chicago Plus Report-Signing Of Toews

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Our Sports Central,

Torchetti replaced Ted Nolan, who moved on to coach the New York Islanders to a playoff birth this past season. “If this wasn’t such a great opportunity I would have been happy to stay in Moncton and continue to work with Mr. Irving to bring another championship to this great community,” he said. “Chicago recently signed Jonathan Toews, who at only 19, had an unbelievable tournament at the World Championships, and they have first pick in the upcoming draft, so it is similar to the rebuilding that I was part of in Tampa a few years ago.”

added 7:08pm, Got to love how someone is trying to scoop the signing announcement.

added 9:23pm, from the Univ. of North Dakota Hockey,

Jonathan Toews is home in Winnipeg. He’s still thrilled about his experience at the World Championship. He’s trying to get some rest, get over a cold and then get to work on a decision he’s said is going to be one of the toughest he’s had to make.
He has not, however, made that decision. Hockeybuzz.com falsely reported today that he has signed, citing sources in Canada saying that it was a “done deal.”
I got off the phone with Toews a little bit ago and he was surprised to hear about the report. After seeing it for himself he said, “Jeez, I can confirm that’s not true.”

added 10:22pm, from the Chicago Tribune,

On a day when the Blackhawks announced the signing of a new assistant coach and one of their prospects, two key questions remain unanswered—but perhaps not for much longer—regarding Jonathan Toews and Michal Handzus.
Of perhaps the most significance, Hawks general manager Dale Tallon said Tuesday he hopes to sign Toews, the highly touted first-round pick from last summer, perhaps this week.

Still A Struggle In Ottawa

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Al Strachan at Fox Sports,

But Murray and general manager John Muckler don’t always see eye to eye. It’s not really a matter of hockey philosophy. As a coach, Muckler did a magnificent job of instituting a similar transformation in Edmonton, and he believes what Murray believes: you have some defensive responsibilities and after that, be as creative on offense as you can be.
The animosity began with Murray’s disapproval of some of Muckler’s managerial moves — or non-moves — and has escalated. As a result, the whisper around the NHL is that there will be a regime change in Ottawa this summer.

Oh No Buffalo

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

fro TBM at NBC Sports,

Welcome to sports in Buffalo my friends, the city that is the sporting equivalent of Lucy pulling the football away from Charlie Brown. Over and over and over.
It’s not just that Buffalo has failed to win a championship in any major sport, it’s the way the pro teams flame out that has busloads of psychiatrists heading there every time the Sabres and Bills do a swan dive into the concrete.
This latest collapse may be one of the toughest to stomach, because this time the Sabres were heavy favorites to at least get to the Stanley Cup finals after posting the NHL’s best record in the regular season, while leading the league in goal scoring.
