Hartnell Hit On Alberts Tonight

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Andrew Alberts was on his knees in the neutral zone, blocking a puck near the boards.  Scott Hartnell hit him and drove him into the boards.

Andrews was done for a few minutes, skated off the ice with a little assistance.  Five minute major for Hartnell.

added 9:03pm, from the Sports Network via TSN,

On the play, which occurred with 5:38 remaining in the second period, Flyers forward Scott Hartnell collided with Alberts, who was sliding on his knees near the boards at center ice. Hartnell’s elbow and shoulder hit Alberts flush in the side of the head, causing it to collide with the dasher violently.

Alberts lay on the ice for several minutes, and was eventually lifted to his feet and escorted to the locker room for evaluation.

Dater Has A Trade Hunch

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adrian Dater at the Denver Post,

A little birdie told me the Avs had scouts at the Penguins-Senators game the other night, so start your trade rumors from those locations.

Personally, I think the Avs might be considering getting Marc-Andre Fleury, the former first-round goalie pick who hasn’t been that great for the Pens. But that’s just a hunch, not based on big word of mouth. John-Michael Liles could be part of that mix, but again, just a hunch.

Lawsuit Filed Between Prospective Tampa Bay Buyers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via WTSP,

Florida Real Estate developer Jeff Sherrin, TV show executive producer Oren Koules, and and long-time hockey executive Doug MacClean are three of the principals in Absolute Hockey Enterprises, the group which was trying to purchase the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Lightning confirm a lawsuit was filed between two of the partners in the ownership group.

The current owners are still hopeful they will be able to sell the hockey team to Absolute Hockey Enterprises or members of that group.

added 8:57pm, via Sports Network,

The sale of the Tampa Bay Lightning to Absolute Hockey Enterprises came to a screeching halt Monday due to a legal disagreement between Jeff Sherrin and Oren Koules, the principal partners in the deal.

Sherrin, who owns a vast amount of real estate, and the Venture Capital Group, is suing Koules in excess of $75,000. In court documents filed Monday in the 13th Judicial Circuit in Hillsborough County, Sherrin sued Koules for using highly confidential information for trying to broker his own deal to acquire the team, circumventing the partnership plan.

Power Play An Issue For Rangers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler at Game On,

When I addressed Tom Renney with that point, he paused and then hit the nail on the head.

“We’re legitimately in the top four or five of the conference,” said the coach. “But if the power play is bad - or we beat ourselves - the stats will bear out where we belong. And we should be humbled by that.”

“There’s a level of excellence that’s acceptable and we expect.”...

When I asked Sean Avery about it, he was blunt.

“The power play is all about work ethic and there are not enough guys working hard at it,” said Avery, who labored as energetically as any Ranger against Dallas.

MySpaced NHLers

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Chuck Gormley at the Sporting News,

“Go on MySpace and type in anybody in this (locker) room and there will be someone posing,” said [Flyers’ center Jeff] Carter, who is single. “I have a friend who said she sent pictures to my MySpace and I don’t even have a MySpace. She said, ‘Oh, I’ve been talking to you for the past month and a half.’”

Umberger, who is married, went online and discovered there were four people posing as him on their own web pages. When he found that some were soliciting women, he had all four accounts canceled.

“They talk to girls on there like they’re me,” he said. “People out there think they’re talking to me and they’re asking, ‘Aren’t you married?’ It’s ridiculous. Everybody on this team has a fake one and people believe it.”

Suggestions For Therrien

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike Madden at the Beaver County Times,

Could Michel Therrien do a better job as Penguins coach?

Let me count the ways:

Marc-Andre Fleury should start every game unless he physically needs a rest….

Sidney Crosby should play the entire two minutes of every power play…

Use Crosby and Malkin to kill penalties, especially when the Penguins have committed several infractions in a short span….

Christina and the Hawks

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

imageApparently the Chicago Blackhawks are finding their way to television in more ways that expected.  A little mainstream, pop culture exposure:

In tonight’s edition of the ABC hit comedy series, “Samantha Who?,” Samantha (played by Christina Applegate) inadvertently leads her blind date, Kevin (played by Eddie Cibrian) to believe that she’s an avid hockey fan. When he invites her to a Chicago Blackhawks game, Samantha turns to her ex-boyfriend Todd (played by Barry Watson) for help. The episode, “The Hockey Date,” which features game footage licensed by NHL Productions, will air tonight on ABC.

The GM’s Talked

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

In the end, the league asked each general manager to submit his team’s position on the proposal. If the results of the straw poll show an overwhelming support for the Burke initiative, then the matter might go forward.

“It was discussed and the league has asked each of the managers to get back to them on their position on the issue,” said Jay Feaster, GM of the Tampa Bay Lightning. “I would anticipate that once that happens, there’ll be a more in-depth discussion in February.”
