All John Shannon

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John Buccigross at ESPN,

Shannon is the NHL’s television repair man. His official title is senior vice president of broadcasting. His job, among other things, is to deal with all of the NHL’s broadcast partners and maximize how the product is presented by local and national outlets.

Q: How happy are you in the way NHL games are being broadcasted by the 30 local networks?

A: I think we are better than we were two years ago. I think camera position and awareness of camera positions is an important thing. I think we are making inroads there and helping them with their commentators to make them more complete broadcasters.

Theodore Showing Signs Of #1 Goalie

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adrian Dater of the Denver Post,

Tattoos cover roughly half of Jose Theodore’s upper body. They are elaborately stenciled works, some in dedication to his wife and daughter. Some seem to just signify rock ‘n’ roll cool associated with his hobby of strumming a guitar away from the hockey rink.

Winning has a funny way of making players seem cool again. Theodore’s locker stall has been bereft of reporters much of the past couple of seasons with the Avalanche, but has become a crowded place again. There is much more notice, therefore, of the intricacies of those tattoos — along with anything else on his body, or mind.

Flames Prepare For Cup Run

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

Darryl Sutter’s annual bid to bolster his team’s playoff chances started yesterday with the acquisition of 40-year-old insurance policy Curtis Joseph.

Not only does it signal Sutter’s obvious belief the team has the main ingredients necessary to challenge for hockey’s most coveted silver chalice, it also means the hype surrounding the club’s young goaltenders is just that.

Nothing New To Playing Outdoors

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Windsor Star,

The Czech border guards, the open-air rinks of Sweden and Amsterdam’s red-light district. The memories remain fresh whenever Polonich reflects back on his season playing in Europe for the London Lions.

The idea was the brainchild of Detroit Red Wings owner Bruce Norris, who envisioned a European pro league with franchises sponsored by NHL clubs and invested $300,000 in his British squad in 1973-74, playing exhibition games throughout Europe.

Future plans called for the Toronto Maple Leafs to ice a team in Sweden and slated the Montreal Canadiens to place a farm club in Finland.

Would Moving Jagr Help

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside at ESPN,

If it is fair to suggest that the additions to the lineup have not produced success and that entirely missing the playoffs now is a distinct possibility, would it not follow that the route to rediscovering success might well be to subtract from the equation?

If this is true, the economics of the new NHL suggest Jagr, who will be an unrestricted free agent in the summer, is the most logical piece to move. It goes without saying that there would be a market for a player of Jagr’s immense talent, even in the face of this surprisingly disappointing season.

A team like the Colorado Avalanche, for instance, desperate to make the playoffs and wracked by injuries to top players Joe Sakic and Ryan Smyth, might be interested. The Avs have been rumored to be looking to move puck-moving defenseman John-Michael Liles, a member of the 2006 U.S. Olympic team.
