Raphael Watch

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

I wonder if Raphael (wmp video) will show up at the Avs morning skate tomorrow- looking to beat Theodore. I still get a chuckle when I see that video. To refresh your memory, Raphael jumped over the boards during a Canadiens practice in early January and took a few shots at Jose. added 9:55pm, from the CP via the Globe and Mail,

Jose Theodore is anxious to see how the Bell Centre crowd reacts when he takes to the ice Saturday night as starting goaltender for the Colorado Avalanche. "It's obviously something special," Theodore told a mob of reporters Friday before the Avalanche practice. "I don't know what to expect. "It's my first time back. It should be a great experience and a fun experience. I approach it like I want to play well and win, but it's not about proving that anyone made a mistake. It's just about me coming back and playing in my home town again."

All The Answers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Loose Change at the Hockey News,

Sometimes there are just those questions that demand answers. Over time my imagination comes up with I receive a lot of emails from people with a burning desire to know about something in hockey that’s been bugging them for a long time.... Now, on with the show… What nation is poised to be the next hockey superpower? As corny as this might sound: Iceland. Their whole country is covered in ice and they have perhaps the physically toughest humans on the planet. All the women look like men and the men look like bears, so you know they can take a punch or two.

Sid Not Worried About Diving Tag

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via Ohio.com,

The day after New York Islanders coach Ted Nolan accused Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby of diving, the 19-year-old star and his coach brushed off the comments as gamesmanship. "I don't need to defend myself," said Crosby, who has not been called for a diving penalty this season. "I think my play more than shows the type of player I am. I'd be worried if I went out there and did that, but I don't."

Visit The Southeast

A Brief But Rich Heritage The resume is already impressive: * The NHL's last two Stanley Cup champions * The last two Conn Smythe winners * Vezina, Art Ross and Hart winners * Three "Rocket" Richard awards in the seven years the trophy has been awarded * The 2004 Jack Adams award * Two of the past four Calder Trophy award winners All this from a division entering its eighth season in existence. Heck, one of its teams didn't even exist when the division was formed. image

The Voices

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bill Meltzer at NHL.com,

Before their careers are over, the sport's legendary announcers often bring several generations of players into fans' homes and car radios. That's why people associate these familiar voices with their favorite teams -- and the game of hockey itself -- just as strongly as they do the people who don uniforms. As with debates on great players, fans' views on who is "the best announcer" depend largely on the person's age and locale.

Will Chicago Fans Come Back To A Winning Team

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

No one gets much pleasure out of seeing Chicago as a perpetual NHL black hole. Yawney is experienced enough to know that if the team can win consistently, then the rest of the renaissance should fall naturally into place. "I don't care what organization you're in," said Yawney. "If you win, they'll come back. It didn't happen overnight, the fans going away, and we're not going to put them back in the building overnight either. But it is an Original Six franchise that's a bit of a sleeping giant."

No After-Effects For Downey

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via TSN,

The news on Aaron Downy's condition is good. According to RDS, the Montreal Canadiens forward is feeling much better and is not experiencing any after-effects of a severe concussion suffered earlier this week.

Turco = Kenny Rogers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Linda Cohn of ESPN,

Do you think Marty Turco is a fan of the Detroit Tigers? Not because he is a Michigan alum, but because he can relate to one of the Tigers' players. Not just any player, but the one who proved everyone wrong; the one who's done the unthinkable in the postseason; the one who is on an unexpected mission to change his legacy and walk away from this game with his head held up, not down. Who can Turco relate to? None other than Kenny Rogers.

Shanny In The City

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

Shanahan has chosen to live in bustling Manhattan rather than the 'burbs, nods to the doorman every morning as he walks his twins to pre-school, has his chocolate Lab set up with a Central Park dog walker — a Devils fan, no less — and is gradually finding a level of comfort in the Big Apple. "It's a different way of living," he said. "I guess I like playing in places in the NHL where the volume is turned up." Shanahan, with 605 career goals in his hip pocket, returns to a hometown tomorrow night where 500-goal men are generously celebrated.

Pointing At Spezza

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Chris Stevenson of the Ottawa Sun,

Jason Spezza is usually a sharp-dressed young man, but now he's acquired an unwanted fashion accessory. A bull's eye. The Senators' young centre has turned into the target for Senators fans' discontent in what can now officially be described as their club's horrendous start to this season, made official with last night's 2-1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche before 17,728 at Scotiabank Place.
