Afternoon Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Ottawa Sun,

Bryan Murray could be facing suspension after being ejected from Monday night’s 3-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks for protesting a referee’s call….

“I just kept telling (referee Wes McCauley) it was a bull—-t call. ‘That’s a bull—-t call you made. He said, ‘Say it again and you’re gone,’ so I said it again,” said Murray.

Life as a Prospect

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Zach Bogosian at NHL Connect:

My name is Zach Bogosian and I play junior hockey for the Peterborough Petes in the Ontario Hockey League. This is my draft year for the NHL and I am currently rated No. 3 among North American skaters in NHL Central Scouting’s mid-term rankings. NHL.com has asked me to do a blog about my experiences leading up to the NHL Entry Draft this June in Ottawa.

You can read the 17-year old’s first post here.

A Fit For Burke

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Dave Pratt of the Vancouver Province,

According to TSN, Anaheim Ducks general manager Brian Burke will be the new president and GM of the Toronto Maple Leafs if he wants to.

Does Burke want to work in the No. 1 hockey media centre in the universe? Does Homer like beer?

Neither Burke nor Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment president and CEO Richard Peddie are talking publicly about this rumour, for good reason—if it’s true, it’s tampering.

They Are All At Home

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

fro Terry Frei of the Denver Post,

As John Belushi said to Dan Aykroyd in “The Blues Brothers”: “We’ll put the band back together, win a few games, get some points. Bang! Make the playoffs!”

Close enough.

The real characters in this story are not “Joliet Jake” and Elwood Blues, “Blue Lou” Marini, Matt “Guitar” Murphy and the rest of the group.

They are Avalanche stars Joe Sakic, Peter Forsberg and Adam Foote.

The Leaner Madden

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Tom Gulitti of the Record,

After a down 2006-07 season, Madden decided to make some changes. With some guidance from his wife, Lauren, who is a nutritionist, he refined his diet last summer and dropped 10 pounds.

“The main reason was just to be healthier,” said Madden, who will try to help the Devils snap their three-game losing streak tonight in his native Toronto. “The game has changed, so I had to change a little bit. When you get older, in general, you have to change your eating habits.”...

He cut out fast food and switched from drinking soda to cranberry juice and water. He also learned the importance of a good breakfast. In the past, he might have skipped breakfast at home and grabbed something unhealthy later in the day.

Flyers Getting Healthier

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Philly Burbs,

Reinforcements are on the way for the resurgent Flyers.

General manager Paul Holmgren indicated Monday that defenseman Derian Hatcher should be back from a three-week knee injury in time for Saturday’s home game against the New York Islanders.

Also, there’s a possibility that right wing Joffrey Lupul, sidelined since Feb. 16 (eight games) due to a high ankle sprain, could be back for the Islanders game.

Digging Deeper: Dater Dumber By The Day

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Updated at 1124 ESTI’ve pasted below the response Matt Saler provided to Dater’s blog entry. 

Been a few days since you’ve stuck your head in an oven?  Scars healing from the last self-induced fork to the temple?  Good. So you’re feeling healthy, spry even.

The only redeeming quality of sobbing Dive apologist Adrienne Dater?  He actually makes the Detroit sports columnists look smart.

I honestly think the Avs would beat Detroit in the first round of a playoff series right now, too. BUT, only if they get Smyth back. They really need that presence in front of the net to do it. Otherwise, Detroit still has the edge with their puck control. But the skill disparity up front has been largely wiped out with the returns of Sakic, Stastny and, now, Foppa.

Oh…it gets better.

Leafs Have A Playoff Shot

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

It is just far-fetched enough in this crazy, tumultuous, and controversial Maple Leafs season that making the playoffs no is longer out of the question.

Actually, with all that has gone on, a near calendar of calamity, the Leafs may be just astonishing enough to finish eighth in the Eastern Conference.

conitinued

added 7:09am, from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,

The prospect of the Leafs finally making good on their third consecutive late run at a playoff spot is a semi-interesting thought in an idle moment or two. But that is all it is. This is never going to happen. There are just too many things going against the plucky lads.
