ESPN now has weekly player rankings…

We’re giving you more rankings fun this season as we introduce our weekly Player Rankings. We’ll rank 15 players every Wednesday along with our Power Rankings.
Enjoy!

read on and some guy nicknamed “Z” is 2nd…

Just a note about rankiings.  I have always made it a point to stay away from updating KK readers on any tpye of weekly ranking.  I will do so on occassion, but if I did so on a regular basis, well, all we would have here is rankings!

Kelly Will Be The Voice Of the Players

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jim Kelley at Sportsnet,

Thanks to Chelios and the members of the search committee, the NHLPA is working toward remaking itself into a voice that must be heard regarding the best interests of the players and, perhaps even the best interest of the game.

If Kelly does become the new boss of the NHLPA, it’s clear that he won’t be just like the old boss (Saskin) or even the boss before him (Goodenow) and certainly nothing like the boss before either of those men (Eagleson).

He will be the boss because the players, through due process, will have determined that he is.

Enough Fighting

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ian Winwood at the Guardian Unlimited,

Let’s imagine that you’re an American family, off to enjoy an evening of sport. Better yet, let’s imagine you’re a Canadian family - much more poster friendly. “What do you fancy going to see tonight, eh?” asks Dad, from somewhere in the Toronto suburbs. “Wow, I know!” says Mom. “Let’s go and see the Maple Leafs play! They’re up against the Montreal Canadiens. We might get to see them beat someone half to death!” “By a man using his bare fists?” ask the kids. “You betcha!” answers Pop. “Yay!” they all yell. “Hooray!”

Trade Talk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Spector has all the trade and signing talk today…

Yvon Pednault reported during last night’s Montreal-Florida game that the Canadiens and Calgary Flames might be talking about a swap of Alex Kovalev for Alex Tanguay. Scouts from the Calgary Flames were apparently in attendance, possibly to scout Kovalev, who used to play for Flames head coach Mike Keenan in New York…

Backstrom Adjusting With Help From Nylander

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Washington Capitals,

Watching Nylander darting about in the attack zone, curling off in sharp tight circles to elude defenders and protect the puck, you wonder how hard it would be to play on a line with him. Backstrom is picking up the art of playing with the slick Swedish center.

“I try to be close with him on the ice, so he can pass to me and I can pass back,” says Backstrom. “After a couple [practices] and games, I think I can read what he is going to do. We can know each other, that’s not a big problem. I think that is going to be good.”

As a rookie playing a strange position (left wing) in a strange country and on a smaller ice surface than he is used to, Backstrom is growing accustomed to his new environment both on and off the ice.
