Following The Caps

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

fro Scott Burnside at ESPN,

Which team will be this season’s surprise story? ESPN.com is picking the Washington Capitals and Scott Burnside will chronicle the team’s travels throughout the season. In Part I, we begin with the team’s newfound vision at training camp.

ARLINGTON, Va.—There is a carnival-like atmosphere inside the Kettler Capitals Iceplex. Balloons, booths, NHL trophies and staff decked out in Caps jerseys fill the space between the two ice surfaces on which the Washington Capitals are working out.

Kicking Around With Havlat

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Marcie Garcia at NHL.com,

There are times when the basement of the United Center, home of the Chicago Blackhawks, can feel like a soccer pitch. While going through the doors and into the corridors outside the dressing room, sounds of squeaky gym shoes and lively shouts warn of a game in progress.

Right wing Martin Havlat, the Hawks’ big gun, is one of the aspiring soccer stars.

“It’s just a good way for us to warm up,” says the 26-year-old Czech Republic native, by far the biggest soccer fan on the team

Chicago Can Answer Questions With Quick Start

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Daily Southtown,

Is this the season?

Is this the season the Blackhawks become a playoff team again?

Is this the season they stay healthy? Score some power-play goals? Go to the net?

Is this the season their long-suffering fans, many of whom no longer visit the United Center, are rewarded with more than a promise of a bright future?

The Evolution Of The Hockey Coach

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

Beginning with the likes of Fred “The Fog” Shero, who added Mike Nykoluk as his assistant with the bullying Flyers of the 1970s, and the legendary Scotty Bowman, the trusted Claude Ruel forever by his side in his Montreal glory days, coaching has become a complex, multilayered exercise. On most NHL teams today, the head coach has at least two assistants, as well as a goalie coach, and “off-ice” assistants, including those who specialize in video and strength and conditioning.

Say Good Things About The NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Washington Post,

And just like that, NHL action is underway. Now we could go on about how nobody noticed the season starting for what’s supposed to be a major sports league, and how hockey gets lower TV ratings than Mahjong tournaments, but that wouldn’t be kind….  We want to go in a diferent direction and find out what people actually LIKE about the NHL, eh?

My favorite response…

...The NBA is pathetic - wouldnt go to a game if someone gave me a pair of court side tickets to the Buzzards. The NHL has some issues - sure - all of the major sports leagues do. The fact that ESPN doesnt show high lights is a plus as far as I am concerned - that means that hockey fans know not to turn on the network and try to listen to the illiterate ramblings of Suart Scott - Booo Yeah!

Clock Ticking In Tampa

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the St. Peterburg Times,

Is this the last season four of the league’s best players - St. Louis, Vinny Lecavalier, Brad Richards and Dan Boyle - are together as a group?

“If you want to think about that, go ahead,” St. Louis said. “It’s not something we’re going to think about.”

But general manager Jay Feaster admitted, “The clock is ticking.”

And perhaps only a deep playoff run can postpone the alarm.
