So Far

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John Buccigross at ESPN,

The Stanley Cup playoffs leave nothing to the imagination. It is all right there in front of you. This season is no exception. Watching this extreme reality television on a nightly basis reaffirms what we already know: There is nothing like it. You know that feeling you get when you’re next to a new sheet of ice and you can’t tie your skates fast enough? That’s how we feel every night at this time of year as we wait for the games to begin.
There are more games tonight, and these nightly soap operas can change on one game. But here are some initial observations after the first week of the first round.
No. 1 Red Wings vs. No. 8 Flames
We are big Mike Babcock fans and he has his squad ready. Hands down, he would be my Canadian Olympic coach for 2010. His lines? Crosby-Heatley-Briere; Lecavalier-St. Louis-Getzlaf; Thornton-Marleau-Nash; Staal-Staal-Richards. Gold medal. Thanks for coming.

Bad News For Blue Jackets

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Columbus Dispatch,

Left winger Alexandre Picard, the Blue Jackets’ No. 1 draft pick in the 2004 NHL draft, will likely miss at least part of the 2007-08 season after suffering a serious knee injury over the weekend.
Picard suffered torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his left knee Friday when he was submarined by a defender while playing for the Blue Jackets’ top minor-league club, the Syracuse Crunch, a Blue Jackets source said.
Typically, the injury requires at least a six-month recovery from the time of surgery.

The Goodenow Files

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Thanks to Liz Mullen and the folks at Sports Business Journal, we have access to the most in-depth article on Bob Goodenow in years.
Take some time out and read it today!

from Liz Mullen at Sports Business Journal (normally a paid sub.),

In retrospect, it’s hard to say when, exactly, Bob Goodenow lost control of his union, but it may have begun in a very innocent way.
In the early days of the 2004-05 hockey lockout Goodenow, the NHL Players’ Association’s executive director, attended all the important bargaining sessions, as did NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. That changed about four months into the work stoppage.
“I think they were both involved in the negotiations for a certain point in time,” said Steve Larmer, a former NHL all-star who was the union employee in charge of player relations during the lockout. “And then Gary wasn’t there, and so [union officials] didn’t want Bob there.”

Inside The Glass Brings It

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from USA TODAY,

The NHL doesn’t get the TV ratings of the other big five pro sports. But other leagues could learn from the inventive way NBC Sports is using “Inside the Glass” reporters for hockey telecasts.
Rather than the usual sideline reporters interviewing coaches, NBC is putting ex-players-turned-TV analysts into the small space between rival benches. The unique vantage point enables them to brief viewers on who’s up, who’s down, as well as the insults flying between teams in a hard-fought game.

Phoenix Has To Get It Right

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Al Strachan at Fox Sports,

The first decision to be made in Phoenix must be the one regarding Gretzky. Sources say that he never really wanted to coach, but as the team’s most visible asset, his ownership partners leaned on him to become more involved. He wasn’t going to play again, and Barnett was in place as GM, so Gretzky had to coach.
But now that Barnett has gone, perhaps Gretzky should take over as GM.

When Institutions Collide

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

KK member snafu submitted the following-

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is the country’s public television and radio broadcaster.  The CBC is also Canada’s oldest broadcast service.  One of the CBC’s crown jewels is Hockey Night in Canada, not only a consistently highly-rated program but the world’s longest running sports-related production.  Recently the NHL and CBC announced a new agreement that allows the CBC to continue the HNIC segment (and certain playoff games) through 2014.  The NHL will receive $100 million annually from the CBC.
