Shining Up The Cup

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from laist.com,

Now the series shifts back to Hockeyville, California for Game 5 on Wednesday. Should the Ducks pull off a series clinching victory, the Stanley Cup will be on hand and polished up like George Hamilton. I’m telling you Anaheim, this is a big deal. This is possibly bigger than Jesus. I know such claims were the kiss of death for the Beatles, but at this point the NHL could use some blasphemy. Satanists, welcome to the Coolest Game on Earth. Buy our merch. You might be interested in the New Jersey store.

Kovalev Wants To Be A Hab

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Montreal Gazette,

I’m not sure whether this is good news, but Alex Kovalev says he wants to be a Canadien for a long time. Radio-Canada caught up with Kovalev on a visit to Ste. Justine Hospital and he offered a couple of mea culpas.
He admitted making some comments critical of the Canadiens organization and rookie head coach Guy Carbonneau. But he said the criticism came out of frustration after the Habs missed the playoffs. He said he and Carbonneau made mistakes, but that he was looking forward to next season.

continued...but do the Canadiens want him?...

Detroit Fans- Let’s Help Holland Out

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Sort of a slow news day as folks fly and recover in Anaheim.  So I thought we could help Wings GM Ken Holland out with a contract offer to Hasek.
Last year Dom had a base salary of $750K and earned an additional $900K in bonuses.
What amount of the cap would you offer him for next season if he decides to play one more year?

Change It Around

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Loose Change at the Hockey News,

Maybe we’ve been going at this thing all wrong. A player like Chris Pronger attempts to decapitate an opponent, the league acts self-righteous and embarrassed, then suspends said offender in an attempt to clean up the sport’s image to a vast majority of people who simply don’t care about athletes who wear thin strips of metal on their feet.
Meanwhile across town at the UFC, essentially the same thing happens but this story ends with a victorious champion collecting a belt, a vanquished opponent collecting brain cells and people who run the league collecting mansions.

Game 4 Ratings

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

NBC was virtually off the charts last night, with game four of The Stanley Cup Finals at a mere 2.2/ 4 in prime time. The year-ago Stanley Cup match-up scored a similarly lackluster 2.6/ 4 in the overnights on June 12, 2006.

Source is Media Week via AVSForum.

Thanks to a KK member for the pointer…

added 12:22pm, via SportsBusiness Daily,

Last night’s game did a 3.6/7 in the L.A. market.

Status Of Two Leafs Contract Talks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Toronto Star,

Talks are continuing between Leafs and the camps for both Mats Sundin and Nik Antropov.
Leafs general manager John Ferguson and J.P. Barry, the agent for Sundin, are said to be close to a two-year, $11.5 million (all figures U.S.) deal. Both were taking in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals Monday night….
Talks between the Leafs and Don Meehan, Antropov’s agent, seem further apart.

A Different View

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from SportsYa (Spain),

Todd Marchant assisted on Andy McDonald. The latter made use of his ability to avoid defense, and he swoop over goaltender Ray Emery. Some minutes later, along came Anaheim’s second score.
Over a speedy attack, and after receiving Rob Niedermayer’s service, McDonald played up on an rival defender, nailing Emery. After that, the Californians twisted the board.

Can The Sens Rebound

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from The Maven,

So, now we’ll really see if there’s any guts in that Senators dressing room and that includes whining-pewling coach Bryan Murray.
We’ll see how that conniving captain Alfredsson behaves on the foreign rink when—I hope, I hope, I HOPE—he’s confronted dead-on by the princely Pronger.
And, of course, we’ll learn whether Jason Spezza wins his Rip Van Winkle audition which, so far, has gone so well for him—but not for the Senators.

more and anyone know why such hate for the Senators from Stan?

Suggestions For The Game

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from mjd at The Fanhouse,

But I’ve been thinking about what could get me back into hockey, and I’ve come up with five suggestions. It’s kind of a shame that I’m putting this post into FanHouse’s NHL section ... the people there already love their game, they don’t need me to sell them on it, and I hope this isn’t taken as an outsider telling hockey fans what’s wrong with their sport.
That’s not the intention here. I think hockey’s a solid and entertaining game to watch, and nothing would please me more than if the NHL could re-sink that hook into my mouth and reel me back in. Here are a few places they can start.
Someone, Somewhere in the NHL, Is Going to Have to Develop a Personality.
If Tim Duncan was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers tomorrow, he’d immediately become the most dynamic and outrageous personality in the NHL. That’s not good.
