Should The Rangers Bury Almost $40M In The Minors?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post, I

f it is true that pride goes before the fall, then if Glen Sather is too proud to admit his mistakes in signing Wade Redden, Michal Rozsival the second time and Donald Brashear, he has no place running the Rangers any longer.

If Sather is not willing to, a) admit to his fantastic errors in judgment; and, more important, b) suck it up and inform Jim Dolan that Cablevision must be willing to send what amounts to $39M in remaining contracts to the minor leagues in order to begin cleansing the environment, then the GM’s tenure of nearly 10 years has run its course.

Canada Deserves A Winter Classic Game

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Chris Zelkovich of the Toronto Star,

Friday’s NHL outdoor game at Fenway Park is creating a fair bit of excitement around the CBC.

But as much as Hockey Night In Canada executive producer Sherali Najak is looking forward to using his Green Monster camera and capturing the history of the first NHL game played in the house that Ted Williams built, there’s one thing that would make it even better for him and the CBC: another game in Canada.

“That would make a huge difference for us,” Najak says, recalling the initial outdoor game in Edmonton. “The buzz on Canadian soil is always more special for Canadian fans.

“Hockey is our game and people will watch regardless. But when you take over an NHL city with an outdoor game, it’s something special.

“I think the country deserves a game here.”

Another Day, Another Weather Forecast For Boston

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Looks overcast to me but not much precipitation. 

The temperature may be a little high for outdoor hockey, but with the ice system they have in place, it should not be a problem.

Check out the Weather Channel for more…

AS you can see, people do visit KK.

Just in case you want to know, the two large spikes you see on the graph are trade deadline day and UFA day.

The numbers you see are the total numbers for 2009.

Best wishes to all KK members and visitors in the New Year.

Just think, in about 5 1/2 months, we will have another Stanley Cup Champion.

Thanks to all for your continued support. 

What once was a blog to keep Detroit area hockey fans informed during the lockout has turned into a major site for all things hockey.

Without people like you, KK would have never reached the hockey masses like it does today.

Thanks again.

One Last Goodbye

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Corey Masisak of the Washington Times,

Two things first—1) Sorry for being a little late with this, but it has been a busy day and 2) I apologize in advance to anyone I forget to thank or mention in the coming paragaphs. There literally has been too many people who have positively impacted my life in the past six years to remember everyone.

Well, even though I’ve known for about a month that my days at the Washington Times were numbered, it is still going to feel weird when I wake up tomorrow and I won’t have something to write about.

I’ve known for a long time that I wanted to be a sports writer. I’ve been doing it in some fashion since I was 13 years old, and outside of a breif flirtation with architecture (which was quickly cast aside when I found out you actually had to be able to draw) it’s been the only thing I’ve wanted to do for basically half of my life.

Winter Classic Game Could Be Shortened

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from ESPN,

When is a hockey game two periods instead of three?

Worst-case scenario: possibly New Year’s Day at Fenway Park.

A league source confirmed to ESPN.com on Thursday that it is possible the Winter Classic could only go two periods if the weather doesn’t cooperate and the game would still be deemed official.

But that’s only if all else fails.

The league has the same detailed contingency plan it’s had in place for the past two Winter Classics. Snow threatened the 2008 event in Buffalo, N.Y., and there is a chance for frozen precipitation for Friday’s game at Fenway.

Those Precious Leafs

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from William Houston of Truth & Rumours,

Generally, the Leaf players are given a soft ride by the reporters covering the team and also by most of the commentators in the city. Too many reporters — not all — carry on as fans rather than journalists. See Leafs TV, for starters.

  So, when Burke signals to his players, by way of the movement freeze, that they’re receiving preferential treatment compared with those on other teams, he’s just giving them another reason to think they’re special, when they don’t deserve to be. Special? Precious might be a better word.
