Team Canada Get The Home Locker Room

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Chris Johnston of the CP at the Winnipeg Free Press,

Ryan Kesler was understandably hesitant when he first heard where the U.S. men’s hockey team would be putting on its equipment during the Olympics.

Normally, the Vancouver Canucks forward gets ready in a state-of-the-art dressing room that is the envy of many NHL teams. Now, he’s changing down the hall in a converted storage room in the bowels of GM Place.

But Kesler has been pleasantly surprised at how comfortable USA Hockey was able to make the space.

“It’s different, it’s a smaller dressing room but it still feels like home for me,” he said.

One of the little-known advantages Team Canada carries into Sunday’s game with the U.S. is the quality of its change room. The Canadians are occupying the swanky Canucks room - fresh off a multi-million dollar upgrade over the summer - while the other 11 countries competing here get ready in grittier surroundings.

It was one of the perks that came with the No. 1 world ranking Canada held when official Olympic seedings were determined back in 2008.

Who Would Have Predicted This?

Blog: The Puck Stops Here By PuckStopsHere

One week into the Olympics and Sergei Kostitsyn is the top scorer in the tournament so far?  He has five points in three games so far (granted the top teams have not played their third game yet).  Kostitsyn has been in and out of the minors in the NHL.  Is this a sign that he has turned the corner and is becoming a solid NHL calibre player?

Morning Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

It looks to me like Slovakia’s hockey team is built around Marian Hossa. His dad is an assistant coach. His underachieving little brother is one of his linemates. He gets to wear 81, even though that should, by rights, be Miroslav Satan’s number.

This is a big mistake.

Hossa has never won anything, and I’m not even talking about the Stanley Cups he missed out on the last two years. He’s represented Slovakia 12 times in international play - two World Junior Championships, seven World Championships, two Olympics and a World Cup - and never won a single medal.

Satan, meanwhile, has led Slovakia to three medals in World Championships, including gold in 2002. He’s a much better role model for the youth of Slovakia.

All The Team USA/Team Canada Talk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Sarah Kwak of Sports Illustrated,

The buzz around town surrounding what’s being dubbed “Super Sunday” is palpable. Team USA defenseman Tim Gleason got a taste of it the other day, when he was riding in a Vancouver taxicab, and his driver—evidently not much of a Carolina Hurricanes fan—struck up a conversation.

“You going to watch that game on Sunday, Canada vs. the U.S.?” the driver asked his fare.

“Should be a good game,” Gleason replied.

“Who are you rooting for?”

There was a slight pause before the 27-year-old Michigan native deflected, “Well, I’m not too much of a hockey fan.”
