Ex-Wings Coach Jimmy Skinner Passes Away

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Most of you will not recognize the name, but Jimmy Skinner was very much involved with the Wings during their glory days in the 1950’s.
He was 90 and the last I heard he was living in the Windsor area.

After defeating the Canadiens for the Stanley Cup in 1955, Jimmy Skinner accepted congratulations on his feat, and wearily commented: “I’m tired and I want to take a bath.”

Update 10:31pm ET: (alanah)
From the AP via Toronto Star,

“He coached with the likes of Gordie Howe and all the great teams they had back in the ‘50s,” Chittaro said. “He was still mentally sharp. He had lots of great stories.”
The Stanley Cup that Detroit won in Skinner’s first year as coach was the team’s seventh. The Wings were 123-78-46 under him.
Skinner was born on Jan. 12, 1917, in Selkirk, Man.

What Blackhawks Pick Akim Aliu Went Through

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Gare Joyce of ESPN the Magazine,

Akim Aliu is trying to figure out what those guys are saying about him. He doesn’t know their names, and he can’t make out exactly what it is they’re muttering about, but he can tell it’s not good.
Aliu, in a navy, pin-striped suit, is killing time in the basement of Toronto’s Park Plaza hotel, waiting for his next interview with an NHL team at the combine. He’s watching other prospects go through their physical testing, the tests he went through this morning. He sees scouts milling around, glancing at him, then turning and talking in low voices.

Are Teams Low-Balling Yashin

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TSN,

Alexei Yashin, according to his agent Mark Gandler, is not happy with the contract offers he has received from NHL teams.
‘‘We are still talking to some teams. So far the offers we have received we are not happy with,’’ Gandler said in an interview with CKNW Radio in Vancouver. ‘‘If we are not going to get what we are looking for than he (Yashin) will definitely go to Russia.’‘
‘‘I think that what’s making an impression on the teams is the fact that he received this huge buyout. I don’t know what else is weighing on them.’‘

Transformation

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

I happen to know the movie “Transformers” is pretty popular now, but to be truthful, that is all I know about it.  Reading this just confused me even more…

from LCS Hockey,

AUTOBOTS
Optimus Prime: He’s the leader of the Autobots and arguably the best Transformer. Sidney Crosby would be the first name that comes to mind, but Sid’s kind of young. Optimus Prime is more of a veteran leader. Mario Lemieux would have made the prefect Optimus. Or Steve Yzerman. Ron Francis. Of current NHLers, though, I’d say Joe Sakic is the closest.
Bumblebee: In the cartoons, Bumblebee was always the scrappy little guy trying to prove his worth to the older Autobots. Now that’s Crosby. But in winning the Art Ross, Hart, and Lester Pearson last season, Sid may have gone from Bumblebee to Optimus Prime.
Ratchet: Ratchet’s an ambulance. No doubt, he’s Peter Forsberg
