Mayers A Fit In Toronto

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adam Proteu of the Hockey News at the Globe and Mail,

So, although whispers in local circles have Toronto most interested in Bill Guerin, it is unlikely Ferguson will be sucked into the bidding war John Davidson and Larry Pleau are praying for. And those same whispers believe the Leafs could still do a deal with the Blues.
That deal would be for winger Jamal Mayers, and you could see why Ferguson might do it.

52 Years Covering The Canadiens

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the IIHF,

There are some records in hockey that will probably never be broken:
USSR’s nine consecutive world championship titles.
NHL-goaltender Glenn Hall’s 502 consecutive games.
Red Fisher’s 52 consecutive years as a hockey reporter.
It’s not very often that people that deliver news, make the news. In the 35 previous IIHF Ice Times back-page interviews we have never featured a journalist. Red Fisher is an exception. The 80-year old has covered hockey, the NHL and the Montreal Canadiens virtually on a daily basis for 52 straight seasons.

Enough Rumors

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

EJ Hradek is on NHL Live and started discussing rumors and how someone on the internet may get 1 right out of 100 and then will say, “You see, I got it right, look at me, I am the best.”
EJ says he has had enough and I tend to agree.

With that said, KK will continue to deliver hockey news as it breaks…

Crashing The Goalie Continues

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Ottawa Citizen via the StarPhoenix,

The NHL appears to have a major problem on its hands. While Emery has acknowledged he went too far in smacking Lapierre - the incident came after several run-ins with Canadiens players earlier in that game - it was thought the episode might have inadvertently served to help protect goaltenders around the league by drawing attention to crease-crashing.
Instead, it appears players have been running goaltenders even more in the 12 days since. Last Saturday, Jim Slater of the Atlanta Thrashers responded to a mild hook from Senators defenceman Wade Redden by cross-checking Senators goaltender Martin Gerber in the face, knocking him to the ice inside the net. It was the third consecutive game in which a Thrashers skater had knocked down a goaltender.

Sabres Have To Make A Move

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jerry Sullivan of the Buffalo News,

Regier has to do something dramatic by Tuesday’s trade deadline. In the current hockey parlance, he should go “out of character” and make some uncharacteristically bold moves to fortify the roster for an all-out run at the Stanley Cup.
The Sabres have the NHL’s best record. They’ll be one of the favorites, regardless of what Regier does in the next six days. But there’s a fragile quality about them right now. They’ve lost a player to injury in five straight games. They’re winning, but the margin of error seems smaller than it did in the fall.
Injuries are no longer a fluke, but an expectation. They’re even more likely in the playoffs, when the games are more physical and played every other day.

Doan Had His Reasons

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun,

But he admits, though, he did think about leaving.
“It’s something that crossed my mind,” Doan said after yesterday’s practice. “I look at Langks and Jarome (Flames forwards and buddies Daymond Langkow and Jarome Iginla), how they’re doing and how much fun they’re having, or some other good friends like Brendan Morrison and Roberto Luongo and it was very tempting to see if I could go to one of those kind of teams.
“But, I feel I owe Phoenix a bit of loyalty. They’ve kept me here this long and made me their captain. As much as we’ve been losing, I’m on the ice for that and have to take responsibility too for that.
“I want to see if I can win here.”

12,000 Screaming Kids

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the OC Register,

Based on the ear-piercing, high-pitched screams and shrieks emanating from Honda Center, one might have thought a Justin Timberlake concert was under way.
Instead, the Ducks were trying to bring fun back, to 12,000 screaming kids on a field trip and to a season stuck in neutral.
The team dressed in game uniforms and put on an All-Star-like skills competition and educational exercise for an annual event for area middle schoolers, “First Flight.”

Scouting Columbus

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Columbus Dispatch,

Scouts from five clubs, representing both conferences, agreed to give their opinions regarding the Blue Jackets’ strengths and weaknesses, what has gone well and what has gone wrong, what the future might hold.
To encourage frankness and clarity, the scouts were promised anonymity.
• Scout 2: “I like this club, and I like where Hitch (coach Ken Hitchcock) is taking them. They’re sort of like the Arizona Cardinals. You keep thinking next year is going to be their year, but it never quite happens. Sooner or later, these guys are going to blossom.
“I’ll take Fritsche on my team any day. Of all the guys on this club, he’s the one who shows up every night. And he’s figured out the kind of goals he’s going to score in this league. He’s only going to get better, too. Smarter.

Zetterberg Gets Noticed In Sweden

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

The Afton Bladet sent a reporter to Detroit to talk with Zetterberg, the hottest player in the NHL today (he had two goals last night).
A rough translateion follows…

The boozing era chain the whole NHL chatters about
The chemistry is fantastic - Zäta dominates in the gang’s hotest chain
Detroit.
The has done 50 points together on the ten last games.
The is the hottest chain in the whole NHL.
Henrik Zetterberg, Tomas Holmström and Pavel Datsyuk.
The dignified ice hockey’s noble pinch in chemistry.
Yesterday, I stood eye against eye with them in Detroit’s omklädningsrum before the night’s game against Chicago.
