Right Moves By Therrien

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bob McKenzie of TSN,

I think Michel ‘Call me Mike’ Therrien deserves a pat on the back for the moves he made in Game 5 - and I don’t think he’s gotten too many pats on the back in these playoffs.

The moves weren’t huge but they got some good chemistry going. He moved Tyler Kennedy onto a line with Evgeni Malkin and I thought Kennedy played inspired hockey.

GM Meetings Produce Little News

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Helene Elliott at the LA Times,

The general managers’ meetings produced many discussions but little news.

Among the issues debated were whether to disclose injuries and whether to adopt no-touch icing. The consensus was no and no.

“We play the number of games that we play and reporting injuries sometimes could be a detriment to the players’ health rather than a positive,” said Lou Lamoriello of the New Jersey Devils.

“We report the player as possible he’s playing or not playing, our practices are open every day. Everybody sees who practices, who doesn’t practice. I’m one who believes you shouldn’t report injuries.”

plus more on the GM meetings, and some words from Brian Burke on his contract status.

Note: Burke also told an interviewer on HNIC on CBC during Game 5 that the meetings produced some positive discussion on the possibility of limiting OT penalties to one-minute in length. He indicated the issue will be passed onto the AHL for further approval and testing.

Tiger Shows His Teeth

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From the AP via International Herald Tribune:

The world’s top golfer appeared via teleconference on Monday, promoting August’s PGA Championship at Oakland Hills in suburban Detroit.  Woods was asked if he was rooting for Detroit or Pittsburgh.

Woods started to laugh, then landed a zinger.

“I don’t really care. Let’s talk about the Dodgers,” the California native said. “I don’t think anybody really watches hockey any more.”

Charming, Tiger.  And you don’t want to get me started on my opinion of televised golf—but fortunately, the NHL’s Frank Brown responded with a lot more class than I would have:

“The National Hockey League has enormous respect for Tiger Woods, for all his accomplishments and for his work with the community. We think he’s a great golfer.”
