Looking For Inspiration

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via MSNBC,

The Ottawa Senators need a big change in a hurry. They could start by remembering the inspirational words of Roger Neilson.
The NHL’s “Captain Video,’’ for pioneering the use of game video as a coaching technique, and a hockey Hall of Famer, Neilson’s presence is still held in high regard in Ottawa four years since the Senators assistant coach died after a long battle with cancer. There’s a portrait of Neilson that hangs in the Senators assistant coach’s box at Scotiabank Place, and another one in the players’ room.

Why We Should Care About The NHLPA

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,

You hear it all the time in hockey circles: Who really cares about the never-ending drama at the NHL Players’ Association?
Well, I do, for more than a few reasons. But here’s a good example why fans should be interested in a strong, healthy players’ union:
You know the Nashville Predators? The franchise that almost assuredly will be relocating sometime in the next couple years? Yeah, them.

“Out” Everything

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside at ESPN,

Somehow, in the wake of these two games, the space between these two teams seems much, much greater than the difference on the score sheet.
With all excuses about a long layoff and poor officiating stripped away in Game 2, the Senators were once again outmatched in every meaningful element of the game.
Outhit, outworked, outchanced and outshot. They keep this up and it’ll soon just be “out.”

Attention San Jose Fans

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike Chen’s Hockey Blog,

Thanks to my FoxSports.com gig, I’ll be following up my post-playoff analysis of the Sharks with an interview with GM Doug Wilson (thanks also to the Sharks media relations folks for helping to set this up and PJ from Sharkspage). This is where you, the reader, comes in.  I’m going to arm myself with questions from fans, so if you’ve got a question for Doug, leave it here in the comments.

Bravo

Blog: KK Hockey By IwoCPO

from A2Y,

Look. I’m biased. Biased for Chelios? No. I think what he did was wrong, and I think he should have shook hands...even with Pronger, Niedermayer and that punk Perry. I’m biased against Dwayne Klessel, his self promotion, and the crap he continues to spew. His comment, “we’ve had our disagreements” is a prime example. Want more? Let me remind you. He’s claimed affilitation with NHL teams, the league itself...all false, and all to lure money from the simple minded.... On too many occasions Klessel has attempted to speak for the rest of us, behind the anonymity of a made-up name “for his own protection.” Another crock.

Hurricanes Sign Cam Ward

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Carolina Hurricanes,

Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the team has signed goaltender Cam Ward to a three-year contract. The contract will pay Ward $2 million in 2007-08, $2.5 million in 2008-09 and $3.5 million in 2009-10.
“Cam is one of the cornerstones of our team moving forward,” said Rutherford. “He has already built an impressive resume for himself at a young age, and we believe he is going to be one of the elite goaltenders in the National Hockey League for a long time.”

And You Know About Leadership…How?

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

So yesterday, displaying an ability to see into the future that is unrivaled and probably unnerving to a few of you, I predicted a certain degree of angst over the selection of one Chris Chelios as the first NHL Cold-FX Versus Geico Bigfoot Commercial Rodeo Leader of the Year Brought To You By Ford And Mark Messier.

But I couldn’t have foreseen the picnic basket full of pleasing cheddar that was dropped in my lap this morning.

Even More Perspective

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

This story is so good that I can’t give you just a few quotes.  But, I’m going to give you two relevant ones, and hopefully they will be enough to get you to read the rest. 

He’s so modest that during an interview with a reporter, he never mentioned a recent tribute from Chris Pronger, the ex-Blues captain now with Anaheim. Pronger invited Gassoff, then stationed in California, to a Ducks home game.

Bob said Chris had them show him on the JumboTron,” said Diana, his mom. “They interviewed Chris on the bench, and he said, ‘This is a great friend of mine, and he’s going to war.’”

Brett Hull is confident that the stick boy he once knew can take care of himself and his men. To the point that worries about Little Gasser’s current shift are almost misdirected.

“All I know,’’ said Hull, “is there’s going to be a lot more enemy casualties over there.’‘

More to come! Keep sending them in!

Update June 1, 2007: Thank You!
Japers’ Rink graciously offered photos from his View From Your Playoff Seats flickr album, to be added to ours as well. There’s still plenty on his site that we didn’t steal, so go check it out.
Also, I’d like to thank P.J. Swenson who was the photographer responsible for many of the San Jose photos which we took from J.P.‘s flickr site. Great work!
