League Will Review Mair Incident

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bruce Garrioch of Off The Posts,

Expect to see Adam Mair get the book thrown at him by the NHL.

A league official confirmed to Sun Media today that the league is reviewing the incident of Mair marching down the hallway late in the Senators’ 5-2 victory at the HSBC Arena to try to get Ottawa winger Chris Neil. Senators coach Craig Hartsburg told reporters this morning that the league has to deal with Mair.

All that stopped Mair was Senators winger Jarkko Ruutu, defenceman Luke Richardson (who was in his street clothes) and director of communications Phil Legault, who stepped in the middle.

Some NHL Teams In Trouble

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jim Kelley at Sportsnet,

Nobody is speaking on the record, but your humble correspondent has been told by a variety of sources that the trouble spots in the game—Atlanta, Phoenix, Nashville and others—are becoming more troubled by the day.

Phoenix’s cash-flow problems are very real and the same is being said of the finances of team owner Jerry Moyes, whose trucking empire has felt the two-fisted hits—first of rising fuel prices and now a sudden and dramatic slowdown in the economy. It’s one thing to have fuel prices ease, but it is of no real impact if manufacturers aren’t moving goods.

Iggy For Captain Canada

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Cassie Campbell of Blog and Columns at CBC,

For me, the biggest question is: Who should be the Canadian Olympic team captain?

Of course, there are a plethora of players to choose from - Sidney Crosby, Vincent Lecavalier, Scott Niedermayer, Joe Sakic, among others - but my clear-cut choice for the job is Jarome Iginla.

Here are five reasons why:

1. His intensity on the ice.

Iginla can do it all. He can score, play defence and be efficient on both specialty teams. He simply is the complete package. I would add in that he can fight too, but in international hockey that area of his game will not be tested.

Panthers Sign Cullimore

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

According to George Richards at On Frozen Pond:

Cory Murphy is going to be out for a while with a strained shoulder, so JM signed Jassen Cullimore to a one year deal. Immigration issues could slow Cullimore. If he isn’t here for Thursday’s game, Wade Belak could take the sixth D spot.*

A Look At The Backup Goalie

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Victoria Matiash at ESPN Fantasy Hockey Blog,

Backup goaltenders are funny ducks when it comes to fantasy value. Some provide a positive, if occassional, boost as a third goalie. A few ascend to starter’s status during the season and become those precious fantasy commodities we all strive to find. And others are just downright wretched. A handful, with varying degrees of value, were in action Monday night.

Lucic At Home

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Steve Ewen of the Vancouver Province,

Milan Lucic isn’t getting caught up in how much he seems to be catching on in the hockey world.

The burly Boston Bruins winger is hot off a hat trick Saturday. His glass-shattering check on Mike Van Ryn from Thursday is still on the minds of many, evidenced by the fact that, as of Monday afternoon, it had been viewed more than 500,000 times on YouTube.

And Lucic, 20, who leads the Bruins against the Canucks tonight in his first NHL game at GM Place, has marquee sportscasters and columnists stating that he’s the next big thing in Beantown.

Scratch Yzerman Off Your GM List

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

We bring this matter to your attention, fellow puckheads, because if Bryan Murray’s GM job should ever come under fire with the Senators, and we certainly hope not, I guarantee you Yzerman’s name would be at the forefront of the Ottawa media’s wish list. Given that Yzerman is an Ottawa native, a GM in waiting and, not to mention, one of the game’s greatest players ever.

But, for now, all other NHL teams will have to take a rain check.

“This is an opportunity of a lifetime for me with the Olympic program,” said Yzerman, an Olympic gold medalist in 2002. “For me, if I were to go into another [NHL] situation as a first-time [GM], there’s a lot going on, and I know it’s not the right thing to do.”
