The Hasek Club Car

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

For those of you who submitted the proposed playoff banners, thank you.  I hope to get them up here before Thursday so that all can review and nitpick.  There’s a good chance that may have to wait until the weekend, however. 

In the meantime, Nate A has provided a classic image your families need to see.  The Stress Train is clearly full and just waiting to leave the station Thursday around 1400.  The club car, where commiseration and alcohol go hand in hand, will undoubtedly be the location of choice for most travelers.  Goaltending could very well be the reason most of you have found seats there already.

And so, the club car has officially been named, The Hasek.

Minnesota’s Schultz Has Appendectomy

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From the Pioneer Press,

Wild defenseman Nick Schultz underwent a successful appendectomy Monday evening, the Wild announced.

“Schultz is resting comfortably and his status will be updated when more information becomes available,” the Wild said in a statement.

The Wild were already short in defensemen, having lost Kurtis Foster to a broken left femur suffered on March 19.

It’s Monday Night And I’m Ready

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Tonite at my daughter’s teeball practice a kid spoke to me with a southern accent. I’m not sure what he said, but the tone was disrespectful.  So I gave him a forearm to the throat.  And, just before I ran away, I told him he’s going down in 5.

No, none of that happened.  But three more days of this crap can’t be good for anybody.

Evening Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Globe and Mail,

“They’ve got size and skill up front and a really strong back end,” Phaneuf said. “It’ll be a battle. You have to be aware when [San Jose centre Joe Thornton] is on the ice. We’ll have to do a job on him.”

Resetting to Zero

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Paul Kukla at Hockey.com,

Throw the regular season out the window. Do it now and don’t try to find it- ever! All stats are a big zero right now, both team and individual ones. No win streaks, no point streaks, no hot goalies, no scoring slumps.

It is the second season and everything is reset to zero.

continued… (though the headline of that piece sure doesn’t sound like Paul!)

The Kings And Their Goalies

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Rich Hammond at Inside the Kings,

While some are still clamoring for a major trade or free-agent signing, Dean Lombardi attempted to explain why that’s not likely to happen. Here’s what he said:

“That possibly is not even there to tempt you. We saw this two years ago, when we put Cloutier on the two-year deal. It didn’t work out. You can talk about trades. How many proven No. 1s do you feel really good
about (trading for)? I don’t think there’s much of a shot. I don’t think there’s a No. 1 out there like that. Vokoun fits that category, but we tried that last year and it didn’t work out. Is there going to be that caliber of player on the market? I don’t think so…”.
