Belfour Involved In Scuffle

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Palm Beach Post,

Panthers goaltender Ed Belfour, who has gotten into trouble off the ice in the past, scuffled with teammates, bartenders and bouncers Thursday night at a nightclub attached to the hotel where the team was staying, according to two sources who witnessed the incident. The Panthers' other goaltender, Alex Auld, was hurt later while they were "horsing around" in the hotel lobby, Belfour said Saturday. Auld needed an unspecified number of stitches for a cut over his right eye. A source who witnessed the nightclub incident at the Posh club in Garden City, N.Y., told South Florida reporters that Belfour was drunk. But he denied that.

White In Washington

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Evan Weiner at NHL.com,

The 1970s were a time of leisure suits, plaid patterns, various neck chains and for one hockey team, an unusual fashion statement ... white pants. In the 1974-75 season, the original Washington Capitals home uniforms featured a red, white and blue jersey and white hockey pants. It was the only time in NHL history that players wore white pants as part of a home uniform. The white pants experiment has been largely forgotten by most people connected to hockey, as it was ditched rather quickly by owner Abe Pollin and his staff. But Pollin did try something different with his expansion hockey team that would win just eight games in its first season.

Being Watched With Every Move

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Edmonton Sun,

Would you rather be analyzed to death, or ignored? Under the microscope in Montreal, or off the radar entirely in Florida? It's a question National Hockey League free agents have been wrestling with for years. In Canada, he becomes public property. Everyone knows him, everyone is watching him and everyone has an opinion about what he's done this week - on and off the ice. He's hero worshipped when he's winning, dissected like a frog when he's losing. And who knows, the fans might even spread a rumour or two about him.

Samsonov Will Rebound

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Red Fisher of the Montreal Gazette via Canada.com,

Samsonov is a stranger to me, but his numbers aren't. The Canadiens acquired him at great expense to light a fire under Kovalev, but the question I've got to ask is why someone blessed with as much talent as Kovalev needs anyone to juice up his offence. It would have been a lot cheaper to buy a mirror for Kovalev. Samsonov's condition isn't terminal. Give him a little time and he'll find his way out of this early-season downer. The good ones always do.

Down Goes Fedoruk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Derek Boogaard with a nasty right last night! image added 12:23pm, from the Star Tribune,

One punch later, and Fedoruk would be rushed to the hospital with what the team called a facial injury. Wild players said the right side of Fedoruk's face caved in when Boogaard clobbered him. "It was disgusting," defenseman Kurtis Foster said. "I can't believe he got up."
update 9:45pm, via Sports Ticker,
The Anaheim Ducks placed left wing Todd Fedoruk on injured reserve Saturday, one day after he suffered facial lacerations in a loss at Minnesota. Fedoruk, who will return to Anaheim for further evaluation, has registered three assists in 10 games this season. He also has 36 penalty minutes, placing him second on the team.

Kasparaitis Looking Over His Shoulder

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

"I've been a little bit uptight. I have not been myself since I've been back in the lineup," Kasparaitis told The Post after yesterday's practice here in preparation for tonight's match against Wayne Gretzky's Coyotes. "It's been very stressful reading in the papers about the possibility of being put on waivers. I have the feeling that I'm competing for a job every night, and I think that's been affecting the way I play and why I'm trying to be so careful not to make a mistake.

Less Penalties

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun, Referees aren't yet ready to put away their whistles, but are tooting less frequently so far in Year 2 of the National Hockey League's re-launch. Through the first 142 games ending Thursday night, an average of 11.8 power plays per night were recorded, down from 13.4 in the same span last year when 700 players and coaches encountered mass culture shock. Not only is there a bit more leg room in the penalty box, but the dirty looks and choice invectives en route to the sin bin slowly are being replaced by blank looks of resignation. After 1,230 games of adhering to the new standards and two months of playoffs, players have realized there will be no quarter given. more on the NHL including more teams interested in Perreault...

All Sabres

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Sports Illustrated,

Here's the scary part. Ask Ruff or any of the players and to a man they'll admit that they have only played their best hockey in spurts, such as the two periods in which they lit up the Flyers for nine goals last week. Ruff harps on overpassing, players not spreading out the ice as they speed through the neutral zone, line changes that could be a tad quicker, risky defensive-zone passes. You name it, he finds the rough among the diamonds. Yet that raised standard is an indication of how far the Sabres have come.
much more...Sabres fan heaven, the rest of the NHL can read and learn...
