Talking Hart

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Darren Dreger of TSN,

No Russian born player has ever won the Art Ross Trophy. Washington’s Alex Ovechkin and Pittsburgh’s Evgeny Malkin are poised to change that with the pair continuing to battle for the league lead in points.

However, the buzz around the NHL as the regular season winds down targets another major award; the Hart Memorial Trophy.

New Lease On The Horizon For Predators

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via Yahoo,

The new owners of the Nashville Predators are close to final approval on a revised lease agreement for their arena that has Nashville taxpayers helping subsidize the team.

The Metro Sports Authority approved the new lease by a vote of 7-1 Tuesday, and the Metro Council is expected to vote on the lease April 1 with only a simple majority needed for approval.

The agreement has Nashville paying the team $3.8 million each year, even when the Predators don’t lose that much money. If the Sommet Center’s losses are less than $3.8 million, the other money could be spent on the arena itself.

Something Wacky This Way Comes

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

1527 ESTUpdated again. Filppula’s the injured forward, one of them anyway.

1504 EST: Updated below with quotes from Meech and Babcock.

Anti-Digger Bruce MacLeod says a vet’s sitting tonite and Derek Meech is in the lineup.

Oh…and he’ll be playing a wing.

Meech will definitely play forward tonight, according to coach Mike Babcock. Why there’s a need for him up front isn’t as clear. Aaron Downey will be in the lineup. So will Darren Helm.

That means that one forward who played in Sunday’s game in Columbus will be absent tonight, but when asked which forward, Babcock declined to name one. It might be that a veteran will be given a night off to rest a lingering injury.

Something sounds familiar, but I just can’t place it.  Wait, I think I got it.

Forsberg Needs To Play His Game

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from All Things Avs,

...He fires up the opposing team, and crowd, too much by trying to be Steve McQueen on the ice and going after anyone who hits him. What happens is, Player X from the other team lays a big hit on him. Foppa gets mad and either tries to run said player, or lifts his hands in frustration to the ref over a non-call. Then the home crowd gets into it, mocking Foppa for whining and the home team gets into it because they know they’re getting Foppa off his game mentally, so they keep hitting him.

So, by then, Foppa is rattled, the home crowd makes it a sport to mock him and goes nuts when the next home team player lays the next hit on him. Forsberg would be much better off just letting it go, playing a skill game and avoiding all the rough stuff.

What’s Going On In Atlanta?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

The Atlanta Thrashers are embracing a unique way of building a Stanley Cup contender. Instead of holding management accountable for errors, ownership appears set to reward those mistakes with job security.

It’s a novel concept, one we’re sure GM and interim coach Don Waddell favors given that he appears set to return for yet another kick at the can despite the fact the Thrashers will complete their eighth season of play without having won a single playoff game.
