Mike Ilitch won’t let me in the Joe.  As a paying customer? Sure.  As a blogger? Not a chance.

Wild Shuffling with Demitra Back

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Russo’s Rants at the Star Tribune,

Pavol Demitra is definitely playing. Matt Foy is coming out for him. Second straight time he’s been scratched after a two-point game. Foster skated today and hopes to practice tomorrow. Nummelin and Harding skated but won’t play.

Demitra has officially been activated for tonight’s game. Harding has been placed on injured reserve to make room for him. This is becoming a shuffling game.

Leading my notebook with the bad luck the Wild has had with facial injuries. Three guys wore full cages today. I said to Jacques it looks like college, and he said, “like a kennel.”

Avery to Undergo Wrist Surgery

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From On the Rangers Beat,

Avery—-already sidelined once this season with a shoulder separation——will not only miss the Islanders game, but several more after arthroscopic surgery to clean out his left wrist tomorrow at 5:30 p.m.

Avery—-who reinjured the wrist against Tampa when hit by a shot—- practiced without shooting today, but was waiting for resuslts of a CAT scan on the wrist, which has bothered him since the start of the season. He said afterward that the decision had been made and didn’t know how long he would be sidelined. Avery said he had been playing with a fracture, and was worsened during a fight five games after he returned—-we’re thinking with Darcy Tucker in Toronto.

“Hopefully, it’ll only be a week or two,” he said. “But I don’t live in a reality world.”

We Want Sid

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

How well has that scheduling format been received?

Consider that one week from now, the NHL’s reigning most valuable player, Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins, will play in Western Canada for the first time in his career. Nearly 200 games into his professional life, Crosby will swing through Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver, starting on Dec. 5, giving fans there a chance to see him in person for the first time since he set foot in the league.

Naturally, interest in seeing Crosby play is far outstripping the available ticket supply.

Watching The Wings Power Play

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Blue Seats at the NY Post,

I bring this up because of the heavily European Red Wings roster. North American players are out numbered slightly in Detroit, but it hasn’t hampered the club’s regular season success. Granted, they haven’t won a cup since 2002 when their core was comprised of greats like Steve Yzerman, Brendan Shanahan, Brett Hull, Pat Verbeek and Luc Robataille…

What this all has to do with the Rangers is this: we complain about the Jagr-ization of the power play, decrying it as European hockey when it’s not exactly that simple.

more... and no Cup for the ‘Little Ball of Hate” with the Wings. He only played two seasons with the Wings, 1999 & 2000, both non-Cup years.

McCarty Still Wants To Play

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Rob Parker of the Detroit News,

It was only fitting McCarty was at Tuesday night’s Wings 5-3 victory over the Flames at The Joe. McCarty played for both teams—he was with Calgary the last two seasons. A free agent, McCarty still loves the game and hasn’t given up the idea of playing again.

“I want to play, for sure,” McCarty said. “I’d like to give it a shot and catch on with somebody and play. I think I can still play, I still think I can bring something to the team—that intangible stuff, leadership, a spark.”

Van Ryn Hopes To Avoid Surgery

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Sun-Sentinel,

While his teammates left for Washington on Tuesday, Panthers defenseman Mike Van Ryn went to receive a cortisone injection in his right wrist.

It’s likely the last resort for Van Ryn before he’s forced to have surgery on that wrist for the third time in a year and a half — surgery that would end the 28-year-old’s season and possibly his seven-year NHL career.
