Not Something I Want To See

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

A KK reader had some time on his hands and sent me this.
No, I don’t want to see this, ever!
Come on Pennsylvania politicians, enough is enough, get the deal done.
Do you realize what can happen?

Holmgren Still In Limbo

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from phillyBurbs,

Team president Peter Luukko recently said that he and team chairman Ed Snider want to meet with Holmgren in the “near future” to discuss a contract extension.
Snider, however, won’t comment on the situation, and Holmgren said he’s unaware of any new schedule for a meeting.
Holmgren did say that Snider called to congratulate him on moves such as the Peter Forsberg and Martin Biron trades.
“I think he said “good job,’ ” Holmgren disclosed during an interview Monday in his office. “He seemed happy about it. He seemed excited when he said it.”

Forsberg On Injury- “Nothing Major”

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Tennessean,

The big question remains when Forsberg, acquired by the Predators in a monster deal just before the NHL trade deadline, will return to action. He said he’s doubtful for tonight but didn’t seem to think it would be too long before he’d be ready to play.
“I don’t think it’s severe,’’ Forsberg said. “(The Predators) don’t think it’s severe. I don’t think I’ll be gone that long.’‘
Forsberg chuckled at the air of mystery surrounding the injury, then added to it a bit by saying he didn’t want to talk about how or when it occurred.
“It’s not really a mystery – upper body is just what everyone says now,’’ Forsberg said. “But as you can see, I can walk around. It’s hard to talk about … but it’s nothing major.’‘

A Common Goal

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

How well can they do in the postseason? The West in loaded, but all Calgary’s pieces seem to be there.
“Yeah, we’ve got a shot at doing something special,” Iginla said. “I think every guy believes that. That makes it easier to buy in, if some guy isn’t playing as much as he likes, or is playing a different role than he’s used to—when we’re all thinking we have a shot at doing something good, something special, not just good.’‘
Whether the Flames are good enough to compete with the other Western powers come playoff time, of course, remains the burning question in Cowtown.

Now I’m A Red Wing- Bertuzzi

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Detroit Free Press via the Mercury News,

“He called me right after the deadline and said: `Now I’m a Red Wing,’ ” former Canucks teammate and close friend Markus Naslund said. “He seemed really excited.”
New teammates saw the same enthusiasm on Bertuzzi’s first day at practice. When Kris Draper got to Joe Louis Arena on Thursday, Bertuzzi was there, humbly introducing himself to those he didn’t know, happily reacquainting himself with all those he did, whether it be from Team Canada or All-Star appearances.
“It was clear he’s very excited to be a part of the Red Wings,” Draper said. “The first thing he said to me: `Geez, you guys are on fire,’ and then he’s kind of like, `again.’ He had a smile on his face.”

Coming Up Small

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the New York Post,

The biggest mystery in Devildom is why the $16.5-million top line has been so mediocre this season. The reasons are myriad. They all matter.
The Magic Show, EGG Line or whatever it’s called looked better broken up Sunday. That temptation to scramble the EGGs is sure to linger in the mind of coach Claude Julien as the Devils visit the Flyers tonight, having lost two straight.
Scott Gomez, who potted 33 last season, has 10 goals this year and none in 10.

Leonsis Remains Patient

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post,

“We couldn’t overcome our injuries [and] lack of depth,” Leonsis said in an e-mail interview. “And we left way too many points on the table with our lack of success in the shootouts. But I am not disappointed with our rebuild. Personally—while very competitive in nature—I knew what I signed up for. I’m patient and plan to see it through its full course.”...
“Payroll will be increased,” Leonsis said, “as will financial losses. We will fill holes, and add depth and skill, some additional veteran leadership….”

Is Europe In The Future

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Wes Goldstein at CBS Sportsline,

When NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly was in London last week for the formal announcement of two games there between Los Angeles and Anaheim, he mentioned the possibility that one day European teams might play for the Stanley Cup. Don’t be surprised. While the NBA tests out the Las Vegas market, the NHL is taking a step toward fulfilling its long time lust for Europe with these regular-season games. NHL teams have played preseason games in Europe before, but these are “serious” and come at a time where real global expansion possibilities truly exist for the league.

Again, Lost In Translation

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via TSN,

Alex Kovalev says it was all made up.
The Montreal Canadiens right-winger insists he didn’t criticize coach Guy Carbonneau or his teammates in an interview with a Moscow radio station two weeks ago. An alleged transcript of the interview, in which he says Carbonneau doesn’t like Russian players, appeared later in the Russian weekly magazine Football-Hockey.
And on Monday, it was translated into French in Montreal La Presse, which devoted nearly its entire sports section to the controversial statements that Kovalev denies ever making. It’s main headline was: Good Information Despite Kovalev’s Denial.
