The Division Proposal

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated,

While it’s obvious that there’s no solution that will make everyone happy, there are accommodations that can—and should—be made. The current proposal calls for the divisional breakdown to go like this:
Northeast: Montreal, Boston, Buffalo, Toronto, Ottawa, Pittsburgh and Washington.
Southeast: Rangers, Islanders, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Carolina, Atlanta, Tampa Bay and Florida
Central: Detroit, Columbus, Nashville, St. Louis, Dallas, Minnesota and Chicago
Pacific: San Jose, Anaheim, Los Angeles, Colorado, Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary.

Fight Or Not

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John Buccigross at ESPN,

With that in mind, if the NHL paid me a large consulting fee to be a part of an NHL think tank, where ideas are thrown around in an attempt to enhance the game and, perhaps, grow it, I would construct the following arguments on fighting, complete with devil’s advocate responses (D.A.).
1. The presence of possible fighting deters cheap hits and dangerous stick play.
Devil’s Advocate: Mandate full-facial protection, like the NFL. Eye injuries would virtually disappear and dental premiums would probably plummet; or severely penalize stick and head infractions to the point where players can’t afford to purposely cross the line. The price would be huge.

Season Of Streaks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Darren Eliot at Sports Illustrated,

A perusal of the NHL through the first half of the schedule reveals one constant: streaks—as in winning and losing games in clusters. No team seems immune to prolonged losing, or incapable of extended winning, whether it sits atop its division or languishes near the bottom.
Certainly, losing skids lead to fan angst, but the other side of the equation is that winning streaks provide those same despairing fans with fresh hope.

Why Wednesday

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kara Yorio of the Sporting News,

The NHL has moved the All-Star game from a Sunday to a Wednesday. It’ll be the first time since 1989 that the game is played on a weekday. And it’s a smart move.
The idea of All-Star Sunday was always a good one, but it never translated into ratings or attention. A spokesman for the league says the move was made in part to get a prime time slot where ratings are better. The only problem is—and, I know, this was supposed to be complimentary and I’m sliding back into my routine, but … the only problem is, the game isn’t prime time on NBC, it’s prime time on Versus. Unfortunately, it’ll be impossible to know what affects the ratings most.
