What To Do With Bert

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

With the Maple Leafs descending upon south Florida for a game against the struggling Panthers Thursday, here’s a question for the hockey-blogging world: What would you do, if you’re Panthers’ general manager/coach Jacques Martin, with Todd Bertuzzi?...
There had been no contact between the team and Bertuzzi’s representatives about a contract extension through last weekend.
In a perfect world, where logic and common sense prevailed, the two sides would sit down in the next month or so and frame a short-term solution to the quandary.

New Look For AO

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Capitals Insider,

The most talked about piece of equipment in the NHL got some more attention this morning at Scotiabank Place.
Alex Ovechkin tried out a new visor, much like the mirrored one he wore to much fanfare as a rookie. It was tinted, but had an blue iridium coating. (Think Oakley sunglasses.) Unfortunately, I’m reporter and not a photographer, but take my word for it, this visor was way cool.
It’s unclear whether he’ll be permitted to wear it tonight against the Senators…

Make The Nets Bigger

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from E.M. Swift of Sports Illustrated,

One of the items on the agenda at the NHL general managers meeting in February is whether, in an effort to increase scoring, the league should make the goal bigger. It’s now six feet wide by four feet high—the same as it’s always been. The new goal would add eight inches in width and four inches in height—80” x 52”—so if you do the math, that’s a 20 percent increase.
Goalies and so-called “traditionalists” have howled in protest ever since Colin Campbell, the league’s director of hockey operations, floated the idea in late December. But I think—no, I’m certain—that it’s an idea whose time is long overdue.

Hecht Out With Lower Body Injury

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via ESPN,

Buffalo Sabres forward Jochen Hecht was expected to miss the last three games before the All-Star break with what coach Lindy Ruff called a lower body injury.
Ruff would not disclose the nature of the injury, which the left wing sustained in the third period of Buffalo’s 3-2 shootout loss at Boston on Monday.
Hecht wouldn’t discuss his injury, but was spotted walking without a limp. He will have additional time to recover during the five-day NHL All-Star break that starts Sunday.

In The High Seat

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Loose Change at the Hockey News,

Loose Change: So how does one train to become a goal judge?
Old One Eye: The league standards are actually pretty high. You have to be able sit in a chair to start with.
LC: And…?
OOE: That’s about it. Although it’s recommended that you have a strong index finger as well.

The Equipment Guru

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Two stories regarding hockey equipment were written and posted by George Malik last Friday. 
I wanted to make sure KK readers didn’t miss these articles, which take an in-depth look at the equipment.
The Gearhead: An Interview With TPS Hockey’s Goalie Guru
The Gearhead: TPS Hockey And The Art Of Stick-Making
George did a great job and the two articles are receving numerous hits from the hockey community.

The Maven This Week

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler of MSG Network,

• Slava Fetisov reiterates that little progress has been made on an NHL peace pact with the Russian Federation over imports. The operative word is “stubborn.”
• Andy Murray has a different view of game rehearsals, “Practice is overrated,” Murray told us after his Blues completed an optional skate.
• Is it Brett or Brat Hull opining for NBC? And which daffy script writer had him promoting Roberto (Never In The Playoffs) Luongo over Martin (Three Stanley Cups) Brodeur? And wasn’t it Hull who last week opined, “You don’t have to be a jerk about it (commentating).” Luongo over Brodeur equals J-E-R-K or B-R-A-T! Or both.
