You’ll Be Shocked

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

I’ve decided to do something a little different and act like a juvenile for a moment. I know. I know.  You’re staggered.

Did you happen to see that Tarnstrom has been dealt to Columbus?

Do you see it coming?  You must have at least an idea….

Kozlov Won’t Waive NTC

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,

Since I’m trying to prepare for every possible scenario as the trade deadline approaches, I’ve been trying to gauge who might get dealt if the Thrashers completely fall out of the race and become sellers. Obviously there’s Hossa, and we’ve talked about Mark Recchi and Bobby Holik’s possible value. But what about Slava Kozlov? He’s another veteran with playoff experience and a Stanley Cup. His numbers are down, but he could still be attractive at the deadline. Well, forget it. He has a no-trade clause that extends the length of his contract and he said he’s not waiving it. “I signed this summer, I could pick any team but I like it here. I don’t think I’m going to waive it. I just signed, what? Six months ago?”

Lehtinen Returns

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Dallas Stars,

The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has activated right wing Jere Lehtinen from the injured reserve list.

Lehtinen, 34, missed the past 33 games (from Nov. 23 – Jan. 29) with an abdominal injury that required surgery. In 21 games this season, he has tallied six goals and 13 assists for 19 points with a 5 rating. The 6-0, 192-pound right wing missed only 11 total games over Dallas’ previous two seasons.

Funk & Crud

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

James Mirtle visits the JLA,

The building’s concourse is an old-school setup, running along underneath the seats, and there’s a distinct octopus funk throughout. I was priced out of getting a Zetterberg jersey, instead settling for the $12 mug as a memento.


George Richards at On Frozen Pond has an issue that must be addressed,

Well, I’m currently in section 133 watching Cancuks practice. Great seats, the so-called money seats. And it is absolutely disgusting down here.

There is slime on the armrests, schmutz on the chairbacks, and how anyone can watch a game through the crud on the glass is beyond me…

The Importance Of Early Draft Picks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

How important is that ability to draft first overall, but especially in the top three? Significant, if you base it on this year’s scoring race. As of Friday, five of the NHL’s top-10 scorers were players chosen first overall in their respective entry drafts (that’d be Alex Ovechkin, Vincent Lecavalier, Ilya Kovalchuk, Sidney Crosby and Joe Thornton) — and a sixth, Jason Spezza went second overall behind Kovalchuk.

If you expand it to the top 20, you’d also find another No. 1 overall — Sundin himself — plus two more No. 2s (Evgeni Malkin and Dany Heatley) and two No. 3s (Marian Gaborik and Henrik Sedin).

Golfer/Hockey Etiquette

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Risto Pakarinen at NHL.com,

Anyway, for Quinney, and other golfers the NHL teams will sponsor in the future, this obviously means some subtle changes so that the Coyotes’ and NHL’s brand can truly expand to the links. Here are my suggestions:

Naturally, “Howling” Jeff will wear the Coyotes logo on a Coyotes sweater, wearing a Coyotes helmet.

He has to grow a mullet. No matter what anyone says, a mullet looks cool under a helmet.

No teeth in post-tournament interviews.

What A Night

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike Wise of the Washington Post,

Hockey may not yet be boffo box office again in the District, gauging by the empty seats. But at some point, even the casual puckhead is going to find it hard to stay away from Boudreau’s risky, gambling offensive style.

Watching Ovechkin and the Caps is like watching a greased pinball careen off bumpers for two hours. Yeah, they let a few through the flippers. But mostly the lights flash, the scoreboard lights up and the masses shuffle into the night feeling good about how they spent their quarter.

thanks to Ted’s Take for the pointer…
