The Phoenix Turnaround

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside at ESPN,

...At this stage of his career, Joseph is beyond worrying about losing his standing. He is all about the big picture.
“We have to worry about things like putting points on the board, the team, team chemistry, cheering for each other,” Joseph said. “He adds a lot to our team.”
And so, with Joseph closing in on his 40th birthday, the Coyotes might have found two things they couldn’t have imagined when Tellqvist arrived—a netminding tandem that would get them into the playoffs and a goalie for the future.

Quality Shots

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Alan Ryder at the Globe and Mail,

Is it important to shoot the puck? The simple answer is “if you don’t shoot, you can’t score”. But a shot is always a choice. And, in some cases, a pass or better positioning may lead to a better chance.

Credit Legace

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jeff Gordon at St. Louis Today,

Since Andy Murray took over as head coach and cleaned up the team’s defensive play, Legace has been one of the NHL’s best goaltenders.
He was 5-2-3 in December with a 1.96 goals-against average and a .931 save percentage. This month he is 2-2 with a 2.23 GAA and a .909 save percentage.
Legace stole two points for the Blues in Columbus on Tuesday, somehow extracting a shootout win after a so-so team effort.
He is staying up, moving well from side to side and projecting lots of confidence in goal. His teammates are feeding off him, too.

Who Is Bill Hanson

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from E. M. Swift at Sports Illustrated,

Ted Donato, who played forward for the Boston Bruins for nine seasons and is now coach at Harvard, is one of the 26 NHL draft picks Hanson has coached. He credits Hanson with being ahead of other high school coaches in using video, creating power plays and forechecking systems, and says Hanson’s practices are more fast-paced than any Donato experienced in college or the NHL. Sometimes Hanson can push the limits: In ‘88 he threw one of his players up against the glass after the kid rolled his eyes at a criticism.

No Rory- Good

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike Brophy of the Hockey News at the Globe and Mail,

So Rory Fitzpatrick won’t be going to the NHL All-Star Game after all.
Good.
Say what you want about the authenticity of the game itself, and that it is an otherwise meaningless exhibition with no meaning other than a little payback to the league’s most valued sponsors, at the end of the day, it is still an honour to be selected to play in the contest. It is still something a retired player can look back on with pride: “Hey, I was identified as one of the best players in the league that one year.”

Who Else Should Go

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

Now, no one’s asked us for our input, but if we waited to be asked, we’d be a pretty boring lot, so herein our suggestions for the remaining spots.
Assuming a standard 23-man lineup that will feature three netminders, seven defensemen and 13 forwards, here’s who we like for the annual celebration of full-contact schmoozing and, for the most part, non-contact hockey in Dallas….
GOALTENDERS
Martin Brodeur: First in the league in wins and shutouts, second in goals-against average, doesn’t the guy ever get tired? The short answer is, no. See you in Dallas, Marty.
Cristobal Huet: A pleasant surprise for a Montreal Canadiens team that has surprised many with their play in the East.
Starter (as voted by fans): Ryan Miller, Buffalo Sabres.
