Flames Need To Get Better

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

A comparatively slow team that struggled mightily on special teams last season, the Flames shuffled the deck chairs in the summer, thinking their off-season acquisitions (except for Todd Bertuzzi) made them quicker overall — able to play a more straight-ahead style and compete far better with the rest of the Western Conference powerhouses.

One game does not a season make, but the Flames need improved goaltending from Miikka Kiprusoff, better special teams and more balanced scoring.

DiPietro Has Swelling Around Repaired Knee

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From TSN,

The New York Islanders received some unwanted news just one game into the new season as the team learned that goaltender Rick DiPietro has swelling and fluid around his surgically repaired left knee.

The 27-year old DiPietro was expected to start Friday’s opener against the New Jersey Devils, but was a surprise late scratch as Joey MacDonald took his place between the pipes, making 27 saves in a shootout loss.

DiPietro, who has been plagued by knee injuries throughout his career, underwent meniscus surgery in June and played in only one of the Islanders pre-season games.

McCabe Suffers Back Injury

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TSN,

What appeared to be an awkward fall could turn out to be a serious injury for Florida Panthers’ defenceman Bryan McCabe.

Early indications suggest McCabe may have broken his back after colliding with Boston Bruins’ defenceman Dennis Seidenberg into the boards. McCabe will have an MRI on Saturday to determine the full extent of the injury.


added 2:38pm, from George Richards of On Frozen Pond,

TSN is reporting that Bryan McCabe’s back injury is very serious, with X-rays showing he has at least one broken vertebrea.

According to the Panthers, that’s just not true and is “absolute speculation” on their part.


added 5:26pm, TSN has now updated the same link as above with this…

The Florida Panthers breathed a huge sigh of relief Saturday as an MRI revealed that defenceman Bryan McCabe did not suffer a fractured vertebrae in his back as was originally feared.

Although the veteran defenceman was in significant pain following the injury, it is believed that his condition has been upgraded significantly to day-to-day.

Talking Greats From The Past

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Craig Slater of the Nanaimo Daily News,

Both Cliff Ronning and Gerry Cheevers, former NHLers, can’t deny the following today’s stars receive, but each have fond memories of the superstars they played with or against during their heydays in professional hockey.

“There was a time that Pavel Bure, no question, was the most exciting player in the NHL,” Ronning said of his former Vancouver Canucks teammate. “The first three years of his career in Vancouver . . . he took guys to another level. He was a player who came over (from Russia) and brought everyone’s fitness level so high. He changed the game in so many ways.”
