Line Combos

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Chris Nichols of Sportsnet,

How might the lines look when the season opens now that we’ve gone through free agency, a few trades and the draft? No coach likely has his lines set in stone yet, which means this is all a guessing game right now.

Still, let’s begin our look at potential ’08-9 combos for all 30 NHL teams with the Central Division today and the defending Cup champs.

Detroit Red Wings

Datsyuk-Zetterberg-Holmstrom
Franzen-Filppula-Hossa
Leino-Hudler-Samuelsson

more combos in the Central Division.

Rock On

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Doug Karda of NHL.com,

Take a moment to think about all the great partnerships in life—pairs that when one comes to mind, the other immediately and instinctively follows: Peanut butter and jelly, movies and popcorn, baseball and Cracker Jack.

These days, hockey and heavy metal is another symbiotic relationship to be included in that list.

Why do hockey and heavy metal fit together so well?

Mike Levine, a member of the Canadian power trio Triumph, has one answer, delivered tongue-and-cheek: “Other than (both are) usually played by a group of guys in hockey rinks who travel around a lot?”

Hockey Jargon

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Ryan Dixon at The Hockey News:

I got to wondering if there are any new and/or occasional hockey fans out there who could use a little glossary to help translate some of the game’s potentially befuddling terms.  Let’s clarify a few…

Puck Distribution is the term employed to describe the action of one player using his stick to transfer possession of the puck to a teammate. It was once known as “passing.” In recent years, confused fans had assumed that because hockey was forged in Canada, a country proud of its social welfare traditions, puck distribution referred to some obscure law entitling every Canadian citizen to a minimum of 0.04 ounces of frozen rubber to call their own.

All Huselius

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Rob Mixer at BlueJackets.com,

BlueJackets.com posed 10 questions to new Columbus Blue Jackets forward Kristian Huselius, who signed a contract with the team on July 2….

CBJ.com: How excited are you to be here?

KH: I’m very excited. This is going to be an exciting team in the next few years, with young players getting better and better. I wanted to be a part of this and hopefully I can help the team make the playoffs for the first time. We have a great player in Rick Nash and a good goaltender - if we can come together quick in training camp and get some confidence, I think we’re going to make a lot of noise.

Old School Goes New Gaming

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Manny Almela of Canadiens.com,

It’s an annual tradition for gamers everywhere to wait anxiously for the latest EA Sports NHL game. For the 2009 version, it’s only fitting that its focus be on the rich tradition of the league’s most storied franchise, the Montreal Canadiens

In efforts to commemorate the upcoming Canadiens Centennial on December 4, 2009, NHL09 will feature an assortment of Canadiens All-Stars and legends of the game from the past century.

Pure Fantasy

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,

These are the dog days if you’re looking for a hockey fix, but the fan message boards are full of crazy Ales Hemsky trade rumours to the Montreal Canadiens.

That’s like fantasizing that you might get a date with Halle Berry. Not a chance.

“Hemmer’s a guy you build your team around,” said Edmonton Oilers assistant general manager Kevin Prendergast, who laughed heartily at the mention of Hemsky’s name in any trade talks.

Laraque Takes Mom’s Advice

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun,

“It’s still surreal. I live here in Edmonton and I haven’t lived in Montreal in a long time and I haven’t really gone back there in the summer.

“I think it’s going to hit home when I get there, when training camp starts and I get to wear the jersey for the first time. I don’t think it’s totally sunk in yet.”...

“My dad lives in Edmonton, my mom lives in Montreal. My mom was begging me to come back home.

“I love it here, if it wasn’t for the fact that my mom was there, I would have stayed here.”

Donovan Talks Sens

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the North Bay Nugget,

He (Hartsburg) is going to take control of the room pretty good and just make sure we do things right, get the proper rest and be ready,” said Donovan, who expects to play a similar role with the Senators under Hartsburg.

I’m 33 now, so I try to be more of a leader in the room, but at the same time, you want to be that third-line player who goes out there and shuts other teams down and plays a good role.

I think they (team management) knew the big boys got pretty tired last season, so they want to make sure we get four lines going, because teams that win now have four full lines.”

Morning Shot

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Don’t tell Gary Bettman this, but I haven’t seen a single sign of any National Hockey League paraphernalia anywhere in Beijing. It appears the NHL is just as popular in China as it is in the United States.
