What’s Wrong With The Red Wings?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jeff Gordon of Hockey Guy at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

So what’s wrong with the Red Wings?

Blues fans were impressed with their 5-0 demolition of the Blues last week. But that effort has been bracketed by an 8-0 loss to Nashville and an 8-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.

It’s tough to imagine a team THAT good playing THAT badly twice in a short period of time….

Hockey Guy wonders if this team will regret not finding ways to make upgrades at the trade deadline.

Fighting Live Video Streaming Piracy

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Fisher of SportsBusiness Journal,

But a newer occurrence — piracy of live video streams using peer-to-peer technologies — represents an even greater threat given the perishable nature and premium placed on real-time sports content, and the heightened importance of subscription-based revenue to online business models. The rising tide of piracy has prompted MLB Advanced Media, among others, to mount a coordinated defense strategy.

Several major U.S. sports properties, including the NFL, NBA, NHL and NCAA, and major media outlets including Walt Disney Co., News Corp. and NBC Universal, have organized under the leadership of MLBAM to form The Sports Coalition, a group that is pressing government trade and intellectual property officials for more stringent trade policy with regard to piracy.

Canadiens In A Battle For The Playoffs

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jack Todd at the Montreal Gazette,

Two months from now, when the New Jersey Devils are planning their parade after defeating the surprising Vancouver Canucks in six games in the Stanley Cup final, the Habs will have been on the sidelines for at least six weeks, because they do not look like a team that is going to make it past the first round if they make the playoffs at all. That will give them plenty of time to think things over.

Those Fantasy Stats Since The All-Star Game

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Rob Higgins at the Toronto Sun,

Since the “All-Star” Game ...

• Thrasher Ilya Kovalchuk leads the NHL with 27 points.

• Fellow Thrasher, Colin Stuart, has as many shorthanded goals as Flyer Mike Richards. (They both have 3)

• Blackhawk Jonathan Toews and Flame Mike Cammalleri lead in power play goals with 7.

• Someone is actually keeping pace with Alex Ovechkin in the shots on goal department. Hurricane Eric Staal has managed 103 SOG, only 7 short of Alex’s 110.

• 26 players have 20 points or more. The Kings’ Alex Frolov, the Stars’ Steve Ott, Florida’s Stephen Weiss and Carolina’s Matt Cullen are among them. San Jose’s Joe Thornton, Detroit’s Hank Zetterberg, Philly’s Jeff Carter and Boston’s Marc Savard are not.

Mistakes Continue For Ducks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Curtis Zupke of Ducks Blog,

Coach Randy Carlyle, asked if his message wasn’t getting through, said, “At some point people have to look at themselves in the mirror.”

It’s cliche, but the Ducks’ road out of their predicament starts in practice. Sunday’s loss wasn’t about about unfamiliarity with new players in their lineup so much as the other players making mistakes.

Asked how they dig themselves out of their hole, Niedermayer said, “I think we have to stop focusing on … that question and just focus on coming to the rink with energy, play hard for each other, play smart and just doing what we can from here.”

Carlyle was more succintly upbeat -if it can be called that.

“The sun’s going to come up tomorrow,” he said. “I hope.”

Defending Holmgren

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ed Moran of the Philadelphia Daily News,

All week, fans have been telling me I’m soft on Holmgren because I didn’t write that he had messed up.

Well, the reason I didn’t - and won’t - is I don’t think he has and I don’t think the Flyers are in trouble. In fact, I think the opposite.

“Body of work.”

Look how far the Flyers have come since hitting the bottom rung of the NHL ladder two seasons ago. Holmgren rebuilt the team through a series of carefully planned and executed moves. He may have overspent on the free agents he brought in, particularly Briere, but the majority of the fans, the organization, the media, wanted change and big-name players, and he got them.

Quenneville Not Pleased With Blackhawks Play

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune,

After the Blackhawks had lost Sunday to the team with the fewest points in the Western Conference, coach Joel Quenneville said, “You could use some really bad adjectives to describe our play.”

A few spring to mind: Terrible. Atrocious. Dreadful.

Let’s stick with just plain bad.

The Hawks suffered their worst home loss of the season in a 5-1 defeat to the Colorado Avalanche at the United Center. The loss was the Hawks’ second in two days and fifth in seven games….

“All aspects of our game were off,” Quenneville said. “I’m talking about every single area. It hasn’t been consistent with the way we’ve played recently, so this was a curveball. We’re not pleased, and we’re not happy.”
