Hartigan Called Up

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Kirk Maltby didn’t skate again today, or at least didn’t practice due to a sore shoulder.  Anti-digger Bruce MacLeod reports that the Wings have reached down to Grand Rapids.

Mark Hartigan is on the ice for this morning’s skate, being called up from Grand Rapids yesterday. Hartigan flew in from Toronto (the Griffins played the Marlies yesterday afternoon) this morning. Kirk Maltby (shoulder) didn’t skate for the second consecutive day and won’t be in the lineup tonight. Matt Ellis had his first practice with the team since suffering a concussion last Thursday. Ellis might return to the lineup next Tuesday at the earliest.

Mirtle On The Selke

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

James Mirtle has some telling stats regarding Selke candidates.  Naturally, I wouldn’t be mentioning it if Zetterberg wasn’t rightfully at the top of his statistical breakdown.  I would like to, however, point out this from a reader in the comment section.

Even if Brind’Amour is not yet a Selke Trophy candidate, I would rather have him on my team than every player on this list. Yes, I am including Zetterberg.

I’m sure you all agree with that.

Very Old School

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Cult of Hockey at the Edmonton Journal,

I’m working on a project where I need to study old playoff scoring stats, so the NHL’s stats whiz Greg Inglis has been digging in its archives and he sent me a batch, which I’ll now share with you. These stats aren’t readily available elsewhere. They’re not in the NHL Offiicial Guide and Record Book.

So, here we go, Top Five Stanley Cup playoffs scoring stats 1927-49.

OK, Who’s Stealing The Sens Identity

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

We have had people saying they are hockey players, now we have teams saying they are the Ottawa Senators…

from the Detroit Free Press,

Detroit’s second permanent luxury casino hotel opens this afternoon, and early tours Tuesday showed off the funky flair of the MotorCity Casino Hotel that contrasts nicely with competitor MGM Grand Detroit’s smooth elegance.

The permanent casino complexes are part of the required payback for the money Detroit’s three casinos take in (more than $1.1 billion in the first 10 months of this year). The hotels were required as part of the agreements that allowed the casinos to open in temporary facilities at first….

It’s not a coincidence that two of the hotel’s confirmed guests are the Minnesota Wild and Ottawa Senators hockey teams.

read more about the hotel, but the Sens don’t visit Detroit this season, unless, of course, it is in early June…

thanks to Snapshots for the pointer to the story…

The Trap Works

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Good, the Bad and the Duthie,

The New York Islanders are clearly Devil-Worshippers. It’s like they took Jersey’s old trap and said “This is too exciting, let’s make it more defensive!” For 40 minutes, they spent more time in their own backyard than my dog. We ran a 30-second clip during our intermission of Ottawa with the puck in its own end. You never saw more than one Islander in the frame.

And sadly it works. The Isles have now scored 2 goals or less in 10 straight games. And they have 5 wins and 11 points to show for it.

Herein lies a major problem for hockey.

Hockey For A $1000 Alex

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Joe Pelletier’s Gretest Hockey Legends,

Interestingly, Hodge was not Mellanby’s first choice to replace Ward Cornell. No, according to Mellanby his first impulse was to bring in Alex Trebek, who at the time was working for the CBC in Ottawa.

Hmmm, they should have picked Vanna…

Buying Votes

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from NHL Digest,

If a fan feels that a player deserves to be in the All-Star Game, the fans should vote accordingly. Fans should not be influenced by the lure of autographed merchandise, tickets and/or other prizes.

It is one thing for creative fans to try to hustle votes, but an entirely different thing for an organization to attempt to essentially buy votes for its players.

What do you think?
