Sometimes It Happens

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via TSN,

It was so scary that Pittsburgh Penguins winger Ronald Petrovicky, who decked Newbury with a series of rights Saturday night, called the next day to make sure he was OK.
“I appreciate that and I told him that,” Newbury said Monday in the Leafs’ dressing room. “It was a freak accident that happens every once in a while in the game.”
They spoke for 10 minutes.
“I told him it wasn’t his fault,” said Newbury, who turns 25 next Monday. “He felt bad about what happened.”

ROY Leader

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John Buccigross of ESPN,

To me, Staal is now at the top of the Rookie of the Year class. He has produced offense despite playing minimal minutes, averaging six fewer minutes per game than the Kings’ Anze Kopitar and five fewer than Malkin. Malkin and Kopitar have had ample power-play time compared to Staal, boosting their overall points totals. However, Staal’s meaningful minutes, defensive acumen, offensive production and shot-blocking grit make him the rookie with the largest impact.

Remember This

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the newest blog of Stan Fischler,

Not that I’m into bragging or anything like that, but, remember, it was The Maven who reassured all you Rangers fans that the Blueshirts still had a heartbeat.
And let’s not forget that these reassurances were issues while virtually every other media type – especially the print guys – were jumping OFF the New York bandwagon faster than a Jagr wrist shot….
As I told you before the other blokes got around to it, the Sean Avery acquisition is the STEAL of steals and would be the catalyst for a revival.

Sellers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from The Spin, the blog of Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

So much for the concern that there would be next to little action before the Feb. 27 NHL trade deadline.
So much for the concern the salary cap would be too much of an impediment to activity, and that there wouldn’t be enough obvious sellers because of the closeness of the conference races.
So much for the worry that moving the trade deadline back to late February would suffocate the market.

Live From London

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from E.J. Hradek at ESPN,

The NFL isn’t the only North American pro sports league that will play a regular-season game in London during the 2007-08 season. The buzz around the rinks is the NHL is preparing to do the same.
According to multiple sources, the Los Angeles Kings will open next season with a pair of games at The O2 in London. The O2 is a state-of-the-art arena scheduled to open with a series of Justin Timberlake concerts in early July. It is operated by Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG), which also owns the Kings.
L.A. will open its London swing with an exhibition contest before the two regular-season games. The Ducks and Canucks are two teams believed to be in the running to accompany the Kings to Great Britain.
