Waiting in the Wings, Vol. 2: Fantasy Left Wingers

Blog: KK Hockey By Hippy Dave

After posting my last entry on right wingers, I discovered a couple of folks are in deep enough leagues where finding talent at left wing is also a challenge.  With that in mind I’m going to assume your league has already snapped up those left wingers whose unexpected rise from obscurity has already been noticed and find out what other wire bait might be useful to your team.

Did You Get That Live Blog From A Kitty Next Door?

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

For some reason, we’ve attached ourselves to Saturday’s win. 


The dedication from every last player on every shift the last 30 minutes of the game was remarkable.  No team can play that way all game all season.  This determination was finally rewarded, albeit culminated in a truly bizarre Bertuzzi shootout goal.

Great heart, Wings, and you really can’t underplay what a huge win this was, one of the biggest regular season wins in recent Wings history.

Yzerman Sent A Message

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,

Best story I’ve heard in a long time: With Vancouver holding a 2-0 lead over Detroit in the 2002 Stanley Cup playoffs, Brendan Morrison lined up for a faceoff against Steve Yzerman. Morrison said Yzerman smiled and told him, “We’ve got you right where we want you.” The Red Wings would win four straight, eliminate the Canucks and take the Cup.

The ‘Stache Gear Is A Success

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

George Parros is far removed from the runways in Paris, but let’s give the Anaheim Ducks tough guy credit for having the gumption to throw himself into the fashion world.

OK, fashion might be a stretch, but last week the 29-year-old winger launched the ‘Stache Gear apparel line of T-shirts and hats with his personalized mustache as the trademark insignia. The ‘Stache Gear went on sale at the Ducks’ team store this past Friday after Anaheim’s 3-0 win over visiting Chicago, and much to his relief, the items were a hit.

Parros’ biggest fear was showing up at the launch and not selling anything. He put in a lot of hours—and some of his own dime—setting up the charitable clothing line. The time leading up to the launch was nerve-racking.

Can You Score When It Counts?  Re-capping An Epic Live Blog

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Today, and tonite for some, we’re talking about scoring.  Unless, of course, you decide to write something that even hints that Ken Holland would willingly let Marian Hossa walk and then “replace” him with the likes of Todd Bertuzzi and Jason Williams.  If you are going to even suggest that Tick Tock considered those two a viable “replacement” for Hossa?  Well, heck.  You’re just a dumbass…and scoring is just not likely.  Well, maybe the faux kind.

Afternoon Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Last season was fine, with the Hawks surprise participants in the Western Conference finals, but there’s no reason to think this couldn’t be one of those altogether too-rare dream seasons.

Samuelsson On His Game In Vancouver

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Wigge of NHL.com,

Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo is encouraged by the Samuelsson signing—and not just because he is one of only two members of the team to have a Stanley Cup ring.

“Sammy and I played together in Florida and I’ve always thought he was kind of an under-the-radar player with the skills he has and the way he shoots the puck,” Luongo said. “In Detroit, he learned how to play the right way—effective both offensively and defensively. And ... he’s still got those skills, which is good for us.”

Samuelsson smiled when he heard what Luongo said and agreed.

“I’ve always thought I could do some damage in this league, and I still think I can,” he said. “I came into Detroit four years ago ready to play a lot. It was an easy team to play for, especially for me as what you would call a late bloomer. I got more and more confidence each year I was with the Wings.

“That’s the confidence I have right now. I believe in myself, I know what I can do out there. The records may show I’m 32, but I’m physically fit and have played only 400-some games in the NHL. Today I feel like I’m about 20.”
