Gaming Task Force Supports Isle Of Capri

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Pittsburgh Business Times,

The Pittsburgh Gaming Task Force has thrown its support for the city's slots license to Isle of Capri Casinos Inc. The task force did not formally endorse Isle of Capri, which has proposed a slots casino in the Hill District and would partner with the Penguins to build a new arena for the NHL team should it win the license to operate a casino. But is it seen as influential, and the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has said it would consider the task force's recommendations before awarding a license, expected by year-end.

Hockey Stats with Breakfast

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

I received my first daily stats sheet from Hockey-Recap.com today. A free email subscription, it looks like it could develop into a handy reference first thing in the morning as you contemplate all the events of the previous day:

Hockey-Recap produces a 1-page report (for free) on a daily basis which includes the previous day's statistics, leaders and other important elements such as standings, transactions, injuries and quite a bit more. You can subscribe to the site and receive a copy of the report in your email each day or you can simply visit the site. There will be enhancements to the site every week and we'll soon have player pages with historical stats.

The Teacher

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from David Amber at ESPN,

Before he was the "Finnish Flash," Teemu Selanne was a school teacher who dreamed of playing professional hockey. In this edition of Facing Off, one of the NHL's craftiest snipers tells David Amber why he's not a threat to Brad Pitt's sexiest man alive title, where he came up with the nickname for best friend Paul Kariya and how he ruined his twin brother's hockey career. Question from David Amber: Before you came to the NHL, you taught kindergarten for three years. How did that happen? Answer from Teemu Selanne: When I started with the Army Service in Finland, I didn't want to start studying for a little while. So I thought it was a good idea to start working in the kindergarten. It was a fun time. We played all sorts of games. I wasn't a tough teacher. I tried to be a fun teacher.

What’s Cooking

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Marcie Garcia of NHL.com,

A self-described cook, Malhotra would rather stay in his kitchen than visit the trendiest restaurants in town. Though as natural a talent as his knack for winning faceoffs (he finished sixth, winning 56.3 percent of his faceoffs last season), cooking was something Malhotra inherited and nurtured through his parents. Manny's mother is French Canadian and his father is from Punjab, India. Though Malhotra insists his family, including brothers, Sanjeev and Mandeep, and sister Sapna, had regular fare every evening, some favorite French Canadian dishes like Shepard's pie, and Indian food, such as chapati and curry chickpeas, were also the norm.

David Frost: Goodenow’s Good Old Boy

Blog: KK Hockey By George Malik

from the Toronto Sun:

Would Mike Danton be in prison today had the National Hockey League Players' Association properly protected his interests by never certifying David Frost as an agent? Would the former NHL player have found himself the central figure in a clumsy murder-for-hire plot involving Frost had his agent never been certified to be his agent? These questions linger unanswered -- still being asked by Danton's parents, still being wondered about by those within hockey circles -- while Danton remains behind bars in Fort Dix, N.J., serving a 7 1/2-year sentence while Frost awaits trial on numerous sexual exploitation charges in Ontario.

Living In The Past

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via NBC10,

"I’m trying to send a message that a performance like that will not be tolerated. More important‚ when a team is playing as bad as we are‚ how do you evaluate new talent when you can't evaluate old talent? The whole damn team stinks,” Snider told reporters. We are going through an evolution," Snider said. Snider was specifically asked the current team's lack of physical play. His response seemed to harken back to the era of The Broad Street Bullies. "This may be the new NHL, but the old Flyers are going to come back," he said.
added 10:13am, Comcast-Spectacor Chairman Ed Snider on Wednesday sat down with Comcast-SportsNet’s Michael Barkann for an interview regarding the state of the Philadelphia Flyers. Listen to the interview... about 4 minutes long. Just a note folks, I thought I was over the flu, but last night was a night NOT to remember. So posts today will be sporadic at best. I need some rest and will grab it whenever I can.

Dealing With Head Hits

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mark Spector of the National Post,

Yesterday morning, as the highlight of Calgary defenceman Robyn Regehr's textbook body check on Montreal's Aaron Downey played over and over on the morning reels, so too did the aftermath, Parts I and II. On TV was Part I: Downey, his Betty Rubble eyes staring into nowhere, fully concussed and making his way to a waiting ambulance. He might play again next week. He might never play again. Part II played out at NHL headquarters, as the elephant in the boardroom shuffled his feet, and the question was raised once again: What are we going to do about hits to the head?

Malkin’s Debut

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

He also demonstrated a frightening tendency to carry the puck into the middle and left himself vulnerable to big hits several times, narrowly sidestepping checks that could have put him on the sidelines again — or in the hospital, if they'd been delivered by ex-Devil Scott Stevens. In fact, Devils forward Patrik Elias — who played on a line with Malkin in Russia during the lockout — advised between periods that his ex-teammate "better keep his head up — because sometimes they'll find him here (in the NHL)."
