Sidney Crosby Conference Call Transcript

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

On Tuesday, January 1st, at 1 p.m. ET, Sidney will lead the Penguins onto the ice at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo, where they will take on the hometown Sabres in the AMP Energy NHL Winter Classic.

Sidney leads the Penguins and is tied for second in overall NHL scoring with 16 goals and 34 assists for 50 points in 37 games played. The Penguins will host the Sabres at Mellon Arena tomorrow in the first of the back-to-back encounters that will culminate with Tuesday’s outdoor game.

Q. How often have you actually skated outdoors when you were growing up in Nova Scotia?

SIDNEY CROSBY: A lot. I mean, probably not as much as other kids in Ontario and Quebec. Our weather wasn’t always consistently cold. But I’ve certainly done it enough. Always had fun doing it. Certainly looking forward to this time.

Spezza: NHL Star

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

A Q&A with Jason Spezza by David Amber at ESPN,

Q: If you didn’t play in Ottawa, where do you think you would have the best time being Jason Spezza, NHL star?

A: Well Jason Spezza, “The NHL star,” would have to be somewhere else in Canada, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, just because you get recognized. But I think I would like to play in New York. It’s a city I really like, there is so much going on, there are so many places to hide and do your own thing. Sometimes, the celebrity aspect is nice, but a lot of times it’s nice to hide, too.

Top 10 Stories of the Year

Blog: KK Hockey By Steve

You know, it’s very difficult to define what hockey necessarily was in 2007. There are so many futile, diverse opinions that I find it fails me to even try. 

I feel these stories will do a pretty good job.

10. The NHL’s Rap Sheet

Ryan Clowe’s the most recent alcohol-influenced problem the league has had to deal with in what was a quite inebriated 2007.  While they ranged in seriousness from the Staal Bros. drunken bachelor party, to Mark Bell’s uncomfortable legal situation, the NHL might want to do itself a favor and start wrangling in the amount of drinking their players do, at least during the season when they can try to control it.  We’ve lost at least one would-be current player (Dan Snyder) and two former athletes (Keith Magnuson and Steve Chiasson) to drinking too much, and driving while intoxicated. The NHL has a lot of problems, but beating it into the heads of their millionaire athletes to call a cab at the end of the night should be (one would think) one of the easier ones to solve.

Blackhawks Using Organization Depth

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Chicago Sun-Times,

The Hawks have called up eight players from Rockford, including Dave Bolland and Petri Kontiola twice each. In 37 games, they have used a league-high 33 players; they used 41 all last season.

‘‘It’s frustrating because it’d be nice to see what we really have,’’ Tallon said. ‘‘But our guys are playing with character, and the younger guys are doing the job.

‘‘Our farm system is working. We’re very fortunate that we have depth now, and the younger guys are a year closer than they were last year at this time. That’s probably why we’re hanging in there.’‘

Oilers Need Some Home Wins

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,

When the Oilers come to making new year’s resolutions, maybe they could start with doing something about their home record.

* Get out of 30th place in the powerplay statistics.

* Finish some checks. Make some hits. Become a tougher team.

* Close the back door on all those cheap weak side goals.

* Win more games than you lose against Northwest Division opponents.

It goes on and on. But winning games at home has to rank right up there.
