Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from The Sports Network via TSN,

Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Tomas Kaberle was taken off the ice on a stretcher after being blind-sided by a late hit by New Jersey Devils tough guy Cam Janssen in the second period Friday night.
Kaberle was hit in the head by Janssen about two or three seconds after he made a pass in his own end of the ice. The Toronto player then fell to the ice and hit his head against the side boards at the Continental Airlines Arena.

Top GMs In Sports

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Forbes,

The general manager is the most influential and scrutinized position in sports because he decides how the owner’s money is spent on players.
Forbes.com’s first-ever proprietary look at GMs in the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB grades each GM on two yardsticks. First, there’s the performance (regular season winning percentage and postseason wins) during the GM’s tenure versus the performance of his predecessor. Second, there’s the GM’s relative (to the league median) payroll compared with his predecessor’s relative payroll.

continued... Three NHL GMs made the top 10- Jay Feaster, Lou Lamoriello and Don Waddell.

Avs Future Looks Bright

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John McGourty of NHL.com,

Holland was less interested in discussing the past – Colorado’s two Stanley Cups since 1996 and a 3-2 Stanley Cup Playoff series edge over Detroit – than the future. While his team is battling the Nashville Predators for the Central Division lead, Holland thinks the Avalanche’s rapidly developing corps of young talent has the team well positioned for another Stanley Cup challenge in the not-too-distant future.

Not A Small Market Problem

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside at ESPN,

One of the prevailing themes in the wake of the shocking trade of Ryan Smyth to Long Island, at least in Canada, was that, somehow, the collective-bargaining agreement had failed small markets like Edmonton.
Now, hold on an oilfield second here.
Isn’t Long Island one of those small markets? And Nashville, which nabbed Peter Forsberg? And Atlanta, which nabbed Keith Tkachuk? And San Jose, which added Bill Guerin?

Rangers Slipping Out Of The Race

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TBM at NBC Sports,

The local patrons on Broadway are paying steep pieces for their S & M (sloppiness and mismanagement) as well, especially the hockey fans, who are watching the Rangers slip out of the eastern conference playoff race in spectacularly gruesome fashion….
All of this happened as season ticket holders began receiving their playoff ticket invoices, with the customary demand for cash up front, which will be held as a deposit on next year’s tickets should the Rangers fail to make it,
Someone call the cops.

Why Refs Quit

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from CTV,

Two University of Regina students are conducting a study on the stress that hockey referees endure that can sometimes include verbal abuse, name-calling, and even physical attacks and death threats.
Kim Dorsch, an educational sports psychologist who’s a co-author of the study, says plenty of studies have been done on hockey players, coaches and even hockey parents, but few on referees.
“Officials are the forgotten person on the ice,” she told Canada AM. “We often forget they’re a person.”

Bettman Joins Pittsburgh Arena Talks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,

Gov. Ed Rendell said today the Penguins and state, county and city negotiators remain close to a deal for a new arena. But he cautioned that the team still could end up in Kansas City next season.
In the latest negotiations, Rendell said the two sides agreed to increase the arena bond issue to $290 million, the amount the Penguins believe is necessary to build a replacement for Mellon Arena, the oldest venue in the National Hockey League. Rendell said he believes an arena can be built for $250 million.
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman has joined the negotiations as a mediator. “(Bettman) would like to see this thing brought to a head, and so would I,” Rendell said.
