Quincey Claimed By Kings

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bruce MacLeod of Red Wings Corner,

Defenseman Kyle Quincey was claimed off waivers by the Los Angeles Kings, today. General manager Ken Holland said that the Red Wings don’t have immediate plans to add a player to their roster. Without Quincey, the Wings still don’t have enough cap room to fit a higher salaried played like Jonathan Ericsson or Ville Leino under the cap. There is enough room, however, for Darren McCarty, who practiced for the first time today since being sidelined with a groin strain.

Liking The Canucks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from E.J. Hradek of ESPN,

When healthy, the Canucks have a top-5 defense. In goal, they have “The Captain,” Luongo, who figures to be better than he was last season.

I wanted to hate the Canucks because I don’t like it when ownership does goofy things that set their franchise backward, especially in a hockey-crazy place like Vancouver. Luckily, the new GM has inherited a pretty good group from the old GM.

I like the Canucks (much more than I thought I would).

Now We Are Talking Ugly

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Empty Netters,

Life is all about perspective. You might feel poor making $50,000 in comparison to someone pulling in $80,000. But to another person only earning $30,000, you might as well be a millionaire.

So when EN reader Gareth Langley of Southampton, U.K. recently e-mailed us with some information about the uniforms of a French rugby team, our perspective on the Reebok Edge-Super-Duper-Mega-Ultra-Awesome-Humungo-Women-Will-Want-You Uniform System jerseys changed quite a bit.

Bertuzzi Hasn’t Learned A Thing

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ken Campbell of the Hockey News,

If Bertuzzi were just lumbering and slow, that would be one thing. But it’s clear Bertuzzi has absolutely zero ability to manage his emotions and continues to get his teams in trouble by taking stupid penalties.

His flying elbow at Daniel Sedin’s head Saturday night was easily a suspendable offense and proves Bertuzzi has learned nothing from the Steve Moore incident. Then his hit from behind on Ryan Johnson later in the period almost cost the Calgary Flames the game in regulation time.

Columbus In A Tough Spot With Malarchuk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch,

...Which is to say this looked exactly like a suicide attempt, but there is no way to prove it.

Malarchuk, after resisting, ultimately accepted treatment and was hospitalized. He has since been discharged. His coaching career is in jeopardy and he has put the Jackets in an awful position. This gunshot will reverberate for days, months, years.

I should say, off the top, that Malarchuk is one of the most compelling and likable human beings I’ve met.

Who Said That?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Q What’s your favorite vacation spot?

A I have quite a few favorite spots. I’ve been to St. Maarten [in the Caribbean], which I adored. It’s not very big, but we went there about eight years ago with four other couples and rented a house on the French side. We spent time at the beach relaxing and to dinners at night. We walked on the beach, and my wife and friends went snorkeling, and I sat on a rock and watched them. I don’t swim well. But the sand was white and the water was beautiful.

Find out who sat on a rock and watched people snorkel…
