Chelios Misses Old-School Hockey

Blog: KK Hockey By George Malik

from the New York Times:

“Coaches like Mike Keenan and Darryl Sutter encouraged going out there antagonizing and intimidating,” Chelios said of his time with the Blackhawks, which ended with a 1999 trade to Detroit and a coach with a different philosophy. “Scotty Bowman didn’t like that type of play, the scrums after the whistle, the penalties.
“You look back at the old Chicago days, players hated coming into that building. It was like the gladiators, a battle every time they came in there. I love that type of game.”
Chelios added: “But the league is changing. It’s more of a European style of play. If they think that’s going to fly in North America, I’m all for it if it helps the game, but I’m an old-school defenseman.”

Souray Not Being Shopped

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Sportsnet,

All-star defenceman Sheldon Souray has been given a vote of confidence by Canadiens management, Sportsnet has learned.
The team has no intention of shopping the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent going into the NHL trade deadline on Feb 27.
With the impression Souray will now finish the year with the Canadiens, sources are telling Sportsnet the club will make every conceivable effort to ink Souray to a long-term deal.

Shanahan Taken Off On Stretcher

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Knuble and Shanahan collided, both went down.  Shanahan looked knocked out and had some movement in legs.
Knuble was helped off the ice but looks ok.

update 4:13pm, TSN has more from the CP…

He moved his left leg slightly as medical personnel attended to him, and he appeared to also be bleeding from the mouth one day after extensive dental work. He lost a tooth Thursday night at Carolina after being struck by a puck.
Shanahan blinked his eyes and was talking to Rangers trainer Jim Ramsay as the stretcher rolled across the ice to the Zamboni entrance. Chants of “Shanny, Shanny,” trailed him during the ride. He was taken to St. Vincent’s Hospital for evaluation. First reports were encouraging.

40 Years Later

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Joe Pelletier has a great tribute to the 1967 Toronto Maple Leafs at his Legends of Hockey Network.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are celebrating the 40th anniversary of their last Stanley Cup championship - the magical Canadian Centennial 1967 Stanley Cup victory over the arch rival Montreal Canadiens. It is a moment that has lived on in hockey lore forever.
The moment is even more special as Dave Keon will end a 30 year cold war between himself and the Leafs. Finally the Maple Leafs fans will have a chance to thank Keon.

Worse Than Iverson

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Martin Frank at Delaware Online,

Talk about selfish: Forsberg refused to take part in a shootout earlier this season to decide a game against the Rangers for some unexplained reason. Nice example for a so-called captain to set.
Talk about hurting coaches: When Ken Hitchcock was fired after the Flyers got off to a 1-6-1 start this season, Forsberg’s response: “I don’t think Hitch is a bad coach, but sometimes when a team is not performing as it should, it’s good to get a change.”...
Talk about not setting the right example: Forsberg essentially held the Flyers hostage for weeks, hiding behind a foot injury and refusing to commit to the team for the long term, though it begged him to stay.
But Forsberg didn’t want to stay. He waived his no-trade clause. Why couldn’t he have said that three weeks ago when it obviously was his intention?

“Masking” Roy

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Montreal Gazette,

If frustrated Canadiens fans are searching for a sign that salvation is at hand, they might not have to look much further than the right side of Jaroslav Halak’s goalie mask.
There, in living colour, is a picture of Halak’s boyhood idol, Patrick Roy, in a Canadiens uniform and hoisting the Stanley Cup.
The symbolism isn’t lost on longtime fans, who recall Roy led the Canadiens to a Stanley Cup in 1986, when he was a 20-year-old rookie.
