Touring the Sphere

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

I think it sucks.  I think Edmonton trading Ryan (Jason, Smith, Smyth) sucks and sucks hard whether you’re an Oiler fan or not.  Not to belabor a point that’s already been made (because I NEVER belabor, right?), but how much should one fan base have to put up with?  How many Weights, Guerins, Josephs, Prongers and now Smyth (Smiths) do they have to lose?

I turn to BOA for their latest reaction and mystification at their own Deep Diggers.

Center Ice Online

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

A KK reader emailed me this morning, stated he registered for NHL Center Ice Online last night and watched games online.
He also mentioned it worked great. 
I am trying to get more information on this.

Another Summit Series

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Ottawa Citizen,

For the first time since 1972, the best hockey players from Canada and Russia may play a series in the early autumn of 2008, according to yesterday’s edition of the Russian hockey fans’ bible, Sport Express.
Under a huge banner headline that read, “4 games in Russia, 4 games in Canada,” the Moscow-based daily newspaper predicted yesterday such a “dream series” would stir memories of the epic eight game Summit Series that Canada and the Soviet Union played in 1972—a tournament most Canadians and Russians alike regard as the most exciting hockey that has ever been played.

added 8:55pm, Eric Duhatschek on the CBC Hot Stove menitioned he does not believe this will take place.  Not much interest in it on this side of the Atlantic.

The Importance of Getting It

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Hot Damn. It’s about time Jason Williams returned to form.  We’re going to need a little production from him as the playoffs get closer, especially with all those injuries.

What?  Oh.  My bad.

Funniest Babcock quote of the year (not written by me)? This one may be up there.

MLive/Khan(!)

Williams, traded to the Blackhawks on Monday for Calder, scored both goals for Chicago. His short-handed effort on a breakaway at 11:15 of the second period cut Detroit’s lead to 4-1. He added a power-play goal at 2:46 of the third.

“It’s good to see him score, too,” Babcock said of Williams. “What the heck.”

What Do Players Want

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

Ultimately, players need to be aware of what they want in their lives - money, stability or the chance to win – and act accordingly. That way, when contract negotiations do break off 20 minutes before the trading deadline and they suddenly find themselves with a one-way ticket to Long Island, it shouldn’t come as a surprise. Nor much of a reason to spill a tear.

Stop The Head Hunting

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kara Yorio of the Sporting News,

I don’t care if they keep ignoring me and every other voice of reason out there (see Jack Todd, Montreal Gazette, for one). I don’t care if every testosterone-filled idiot wants to call me a girl.
Enough.
Somebody is going to die.
I thought I had just witnessed it. Just minutes ago, here at Continental Airlines Arena.
But the league got lucky again tonight when the Maple Leafs defenseman Tomas Kaberle somehow raised himself off the ice after Devils winger Cam Janssen hit him in the head, feet from the boards, sending him crashing awkwardly into the boards and crumbling to the ice.

Tough Guy Comeback

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Robert Tychkowski of the Edmonton Sun,

The dinosaurs are pleased to announce that news of their death has been greatly exaggerated.
National Hockey League beat cops had one foot in the grave when this season began and it had been widely accepted that another year in the kinder, gentler and faster post-lockout era would be the end of them for good.
Well, you might want to hold off on the dirt and shovels. Turns out the Tough Guy and Enforcer’s Union is still kicking. Or, at least punching.

A Bunch Of Numbers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Toronto Star,

Then there are the stories about general managers asking the hometown stats keepers to add a few hits per game to particular underachieving defencemen to pump up their trade value. So it’s buyer beware when it comes to lies, damn lies and statistics.
