While We’re At It…You’re An Idiot Too

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

So nice to see you. Just when we thought USA Today had come to their senses, here you are again to enlighten us with your glow of genius.

The Central Division looks interesting.

I think that may be the first time in four years anyone’s been stupid enough to actually put that thought in print.  But Ted Montgomery doesn’t stop there.

Dominator on Wheels

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

With thanks to Roman at eNHL.cz, we’ve discovered Dominik Hasek’s new off season hobby.

(*Important to note that when Hasek spoke to eNHL.cz’s camera man, he was insistent that he does not ride during the NHL season.)

from Inside the Kings,

The dressing-room chemistry seems to be good. It’s a real good group of guys, on a personal level, and they seem to like each other. So I don’t think that’s a problem. Is the coaching staff getting through to them? Maybe that’s an issue. The fact that Dave Lewis was brought in, as sort of a ``father figure’’ to the players, tells me that there might have been an issue with Crawford’s ability to relate to the players. I don’t know that for a fact, but if there is, that’s a bigger issue than any X’s or O’s problem or an inability to kill penalties.

Two Weeks In…

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike Brophy of the Hockey News,

It’s early, but…

• It looks like Jason Spezza will win the Art Ross Trophy with no goals and 128 assists.

• Could we have been dead wrong? Will it be the New York Islanders, and not the Rangers, that succeed this season?

Tough Guys In Transition

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Darren Eliot of Sports Illustrated,

In days gone by, one team’s enforcer would engage the other team’s designated hitter and the code was to oblige. More and more though, the challenges that once meant an immediate throw-down now garner a dismissive shrug. So what’s a roughneck “role player” to do except try to redefine his role?

To that end, some have made the transition from baiter to skater and proved valuable forecheckers who can score a bit. Check out Chris Neil in Ottawa and Sean Avery in New York. Even Simon made the switch from puncher only to tough guy who could also take a regular shift.

Good Starts Count

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside at ESPN,

So, when does “it’s early” become “it’s too late”? Well, if history is any indication, many teams will have crossed that all-important line by Halloween.

A quick look at the standings on Nov. 1, 2006 shows that teams that endured a rough start to the season found it very difficult to get back into a playoff spot, especially in the Western Conference. Of the top eight teams in the West, only one team didn’t maintain its standing within the top eight—the Edmonton Oilers, who held down the eighth and final playoff spot last Nov. 1 but tumbled all the way to 12th by the end of the season.

Harry Neale Settling In With Buffalo

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Tim Wharnsby of the Globe and Mail,

“It’s been used to getting a whole new crew,” Neale said. “Jeanneret has been easy to work with. But it’s like getting traded to a team. You have to get used to your new teammates.”

Neale was asked that after the Sabres 0-2 start, some of the Buffalo players and coaches kidded him that he brought some of the Leafs struggling ways with him.

“Actually, I missed one of the first-two games because of my duties with Hockey Night in Canada,” he said. “I was only 0-1 before I had a meeting with the team and straightened them out.
