Avery Goes Off On Cherry

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from William Houston of the Globe and Mail,

NHL tough guy Sean Avery reopened his feud with Don Cherry this week by stating the CBC commentator knows next to nothing about hockey.

“He’s a stable as far as Canadian hockey goes,” Avery said during interview on the CBC’s The Hour. “And I grew up watching Coach’s Corner, and he serves a purpose.

“But he really does not know shit about hockey.

“He knows, like, unnecessary facts about putting Sears catalogues on your shin pads.”

The Best Post-Season Sport

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Discussing which sport has the best post-season, E.J. Hradek of ESPN comes to the rescue regarding our game…

Take a look at what we’re talking about here. I mean, the Cup playoffs are a two-month physical and mental grind. Think about that. That’s two months where you play just about every other day. With each passing game, you’re more beat up, but you keep going. The guys grow those “playoff beards” because they want to look like they feel—worn.

Prague Ready For The NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from František Bouc of the Prague Post,

Twenty-seven hours. This was all it took in late April to sell out more than 10,000 tickets reserved for Czech fans for the NHL Premiere games between the New York Rangers and the Tampa Bay Lightning to be played Saturday, Oct. 4, and Sunday, Oct. 5, at Prague’s O2 Arena. Tickets disappeared quite fast despite the fact the game’s organizers had not announced the date of the sale in advance.

“We would have been able to sell at least double the amount of the tickets [had the sales date been announced],” said Vladimír Šafařík, chief event organizer.
