Gaborik For “MVP”

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Darren Eliot at Sports Illustrated,

...That’s why you cannot minimize Gaborik’s influence. It’s quantifiable: he has 28 goals in 42 games—a pace that would lead the league if he had played the full schedule thus far. Point-wise, his half-season tally (50) likewise projected would have him battling Crosby and Thornton.
Because Gaborik won’t produce a full body of work, though, no awards will be forthcoming—certainly not the Ross and very likely not the Hart Trophy. But in the big picture, while he has been the Wild’s focal point for some time, it is now truly his team. Marian Gaborik is the Wild’s MVP, as in Most Visible Presence.

A Night To Remember

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Thomas Nuemann at Page 2/ESPN,

A simmering rivalry bubbled over in a game for the ages 10 years ago.
On March 26, 1997, while the Colorado Avalanche and the Detroit Red Wings were positioning themselves for the upcoming NHL playoffs, bad blood from the previous postseason boiled into unadulterated fury at Joe Louis Arena. The teams combined for nine fights, 11 goals, 39 penalties, 148 penalty minutes, one hat trick, one “turtle” and two Stanley Cup champion goalies duking it out in an overtime thriller.
The box score alone is suitable for framing.

The Canadian Goalie

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Allan Maki of the Globe and Mail,

With all that happening, we could use a little levity, something all hockey fans can agree on. We’re talking about Clark, the Canadian Hockey Goalie.
If you’ve seen Clark, you’re already chuckling at the mention of his name. If you haven’t seen Clark, we’re here to make your day.
Clark, the Canadian Hockey Goalie is a six-minute mocumentary that was made three years ago but has found new life on the Internet.

The Other Opinion

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from The Spin, the blog of Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

Despite exhaustive efforts (presumably) by its production and research staff, HNIC has still not been able to turn up a single person capable of expressing the growing sentiment against fighting in the sport.
You’d think with all those taxpayer dollars behind it HNIC might be able to find a single voice in the hockey world to occasionally disagree with the program’s stridently pro-fighting platform.
Instead, it’s “fighting is part of the game” before the game, during the first period intermission when we see hockey’s version of Ann (Anybody Who Disagrees with me is a Fag) Coulter, during the second period intermission panel discussion and after the game.
