Line Of The Day

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Puck-rakers,

Hitchcock was asked if he was planning to “go with Malarchuk” tonight against the Canucks:

“Hey, he wasn’t bad for a guy in the 1970s. I don’t think you’ll see him (Thursday night). It was hard enough to get him out there for practice. He kept holding out for a better deal. We didn’t get it done until right before practice.”

Ranking Iginla on Flames List of Greats

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From David Carroll at TSN,

Jarome Iginla is set to become the Flames all-time leader in games played on Thursday when he hits the ice against the Anaheim Ducks.

The 30-year-old is one of the NHL’s biggest stars and has an impressive list of awards and accomplishments. Iginla has won “Rocket” Richard Trophies, a Lester B. Person Award and an Art Ross Trophy.

He can score and, when needed, can mix it up but where does he rank on the list of Flames all-time greats?

continued…

How do you stack Iginla against players like Joe Nieuwendyk, Al MacInnis, Gary Suter, Theo Fleury, Lanny McDonald, Paul Reinhart and Mike Vernon and others?  There’s also a poll available on the TSN front page.

Avery Gets His Retraction

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from William Houston of the Globe and Mail,

The FAN590 in Toronto will retract, on air, its report alleging that New York Ranger Sean Avery had ridiculed Toronto Maple Leaf Jason Blake’s fight with cancer during a trash-talking session at the Air Canada Centre on Nov. 10.

In addition to strongly denying the report, Avery also served the radio station with a notice of libel. The Fan’s Howard Berger had quoted a Ranger source saying Avery had alluded to Blake’s chronic leukemia during an exchange at centre ice before the start of the game.

Hartigan Called Up

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Kirk Maltby didn’t skate again today, or at least didn’t practice due to a sore shoulder.  Anti-digger Bruce MacLeod reports that the Wings have reached down to Grand Rapids.

Mark Hartigan is on the ice for this morning’s skate, being called up from Grand Rapids yesterday. Hartigan flew in from Toronto (the Griffins played the Marlies yesterday afternoon) this morning. Kirk Maltby (shoulder) didn’t skate for the second consecutive day and won’t be in the lineup tonight. Matt Ellis had his first practice with the team since suffering a concussion last Thursday. Ellis might return to the lineup next Tuesday at the earliest.

Mirtle On The Selke

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

James Mirtle has some telling stats regarding Selke candidates.  Naturally, I wouldn’t be mentioning it if Zetterberg wasn’t rightfully at the top of his statistical breakdown.  I would like to, however, point out this from a reader in the comment section.

Even if Brind’Amour is not yet a Selke Trophy candidate, I would rather have him on my team than every player on this list. Yes, I am including Zetterberg.

I’m sure you all agree with that.

Very Old School

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Cult of Hockey at the Edmonton Journal,

I’m working on a project where I need to study old playoff scoring stats, so the NHL’s stats whiz Greg Inglis has been digging in its archives and he sent me a batch, which I’ll now share with you. These stats aren’t readily available elsewhere. They’re not in the NHL Offiicial Guide and Record Book.

So, here we go, Top Five Stanley Cup playoffs scoring stats 1927-49.

NHL PLAYOFF POINTS LEADERS, 1927-1949

OK, Who’s Stealing The Sens Identity

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

We have had people saying they are hockey players, now we have teams saying they are the Ottawa Senators…

from the Detroit Free Press,

Detroit’s second permanent luxury casino hotel opens this afternoon, and early tours Tuesday showed off the funky flair of the MotorCity Casino Hotel that contrasts nicely with competitor MGM Grand Detroit’s smooth elegance.

The permanent casino complexes are part of the required payback for the money Detroit’s three casinos take in (more than $1.1 billion in the first 10 months of this year). The hotels were required as part of the agreements that allowed the casinos to open in temporary facilities at first….

It’s not a coincidence that two of the hotel’s confirmed guests are the Minnesota Wild and Ottawa Senators hockey teams.

read more about the hotel, but the Sens don’t visit Detroit this season, unless, of course, it is in early June…

thanks to Snapshots for the pointer to the story…
