Blame Global Warming

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Loose Change at the Hockey News,

Conspicuously absent from the list is the one villain who everyone’s currently pointing a finger at, for everything under the sun, - the NHL can’t even play the Blame Game properly – Global Warming! Yes, my rapidly-thawing friends, Mother Nature is keeping fans from warming (brilliant reasoning, I know) up to the sport of hockey.
If you think about it, it makes so much sense.

Hockey History and Gossiping About Stanley

An Interview with Michael McKinley,
Filmmaker and author of
Hockey: A People’s History
____________________________________________

With the NHL playoffs well underway, excitement for hockey in North America is at its highest point of the season. Especially true for the fans of the eight teams fighting their way to next round, but also for the many new fans that are seduced by our favorite sport during this time of year, when passions are at their highest. 

One of the pleasures of playoff hockey is all the extra analysis we can indulge in.  We entertain ourselves with fool predictions, screaming arguments about the officiating, even crazy dreams of seeing the Stanley Cup in our own arena.  At a time like this, it’s also natural to reflect on historical greatness as we watch new history being made before our eyes. 

On that topic, I spoke with hockey historian Michael McKinley recently, to learn more about hockey’s past, and some of the great stories the make this game what it is today.

Wing Award Finalists

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Uncle Mike Lack of Jack Adams got the shaft, in my opinion; as I think he should have at least been considered. But two Wings (stop reading if your memory takes you back to last year) are finalists again. JAMES NORRIS MEMORIAL TROPHY (outstanding defenseman): Nicklas Lidstrom, Red Wings; Scott Niedermayer, Ducks; Chris Pronger, Ducks. LADY BYNG MEMORIAL TROPHY (sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct): Pavel Datsyuk, Red Wings; Joe Sakic, Avalanche; Martin St. Louis, Lightning. This is Lidstrom's 8th time as a Norris finalist in the last 9 years. More

NHL Goes Viral

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Why put up an older video?- just a test but read on hockey bloggers.

NEW YORK, NY / RESTON, VA (MAY 1, 2007) — The National Hockey League (NHL) announced today that it has teamed with Voxant, the Viral Syndication Network (VSN), to distribute video clips of game highlights, bloopers, noteworthy moments and other news to thousands of websites and blogs through TheNewsRoom (www.thenewsroom.com).

Canucks Ready For Big, Bad Ducks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the OC Register,

Game 4 is tonight at GM Place, and the Canucks are not about to back down.
“The main thing is what we believe in this locker room,” Vancouver goaltender Roberto Luongo said. “There’s going to be speculation outside the locker room, but the most important thing is we believe in our group and we believe we can get the job done. We’ve proven that we can play with these guys. Apart from the first game, they’ve been all tight games. We’re just going to keep plugging away.”
While many in the media, particularly those from Vancouver, might have been guilty of writing off the Canucks after the first game of the series, the Ducks certainly did not fall into that category.

Duhatschek on The Wings/Sharks Series

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

I had the opportunity to speak with Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail this morning to get his views on the Detroit/San Jose series.
Eric has been covering the series for the Globe and Mail and I really appreciated him taking about 15 minutes out of his busy schedule this morning to discuss the series.
The audio should be of interest to all hockey fans.
I started out by asking Eric about the lack of scoring in this series… listen and enjoy!

Cost Effective

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Canadian Business,

Consider that the Penguins spent about $37 million to earn 105 points. That’s $351,603 per point, making it the most cost-effective team in the NHL. (It should be pointed out that the salary figures contained on our charts reflect the current value of all player contracts on a team, not the actual amount paid under the cap, nor do they include performance bonuses.) At the other end of the spectrum, the Flyers spent $723,815 for each of its 56 points.
