Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Sometime today/tonight, KK is being upgraded to a new email server.  This should not cause any issues on KK but I will not be able to respond to any emails sent my way until the upgrade is completed and I have made the changes to Outlook and my Droid settings.

All Those Numbers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

James Mirtle of From The Rink breaks-down the numbers from the Forbes report that came out yesterday….

The average NHL team has increased its revenues by $20-million since 2003-04, but those on the low end of the scale have only marginally improved their bottom lines, getting a $9-million boost on average (including revenue sharing). Toronto, Montreal and the Rangers, meanwhile, have increased their revenues by an average of about $40-million the past five seasons.

All Marc-Andre Fleury

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

A quick Q & A from Seth Rorabaugh of Empty Netters,

On the slumps of Sidney Crosby and the team:

“I let him score a couple in practice to make him feel good. (Laughs). No, he’s very confident. For all of us, it’s a little bit tough. After the start we’ve had its frustrating. But we’ve got to get ourselves together.”

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Spector at Fox Sports,

The National Hockey League has witnessed some tremendous performances by superstar goaltenders and rising stars. Here’s a look at the decade’s top 10 NHL netminders:

10. Tim Thomas: “The Tank” spent the first half of this decade bouncing between the AHL and Europe but by the end of this decade the Boston Bruins had a late-blooming star in the 35-year-old Thomas. His performance between the pipes played a huge part in the Bruins’ emergence as a playoff team over the past two years.

A Two Week Injury For Orpik

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Sam Kasan of PittsburghPenguins.com,

Another day, another injury. Or so it seems for the Penguins these days.

In the team’s most recent health setback, it was announced Thursday that defenseman Brooks Orpik will be out of the lineup for the next two weeks with a lower-body injury.

“He’s got a two-week injury, lower body,” head coach Dan Bylsma said. “We were excited that he was doing better than we feared. He’s doing well. We got some good news and he’ll hopefully be around 14 days.”

Watching At Practice

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Aaron Portzline of Puck-rakers,

I’ve seen my share of hockey practices over the last 10 seasons or so, but I’ve never seen this.

Rather than have a film session in the dressing room and then head out for an on-ice practice, the Blue Jackets are mixing the two this morning in the wake of a 9-1 drubbing by the Red Wings on Wednesday.

A large TV was wheeled out to where the tunnel comes into the bench. After skating for 20 minutes or so, the players were brought over to watch highlights (lowlights?) from the Red Wings game.

It was an attentive audience.

More of the Flu.


Wings goalie Chris Osgood and forward Kirk Maltby have the flu and will miss Thursday night’s game against the Vancouver Canucks at Joe Louis Arena.

Jimmy Howard, who was in goal in Wednesday night’s 9-1 victory over Columbus, will start against the Canucks. His backup will be Daniel Larsson, who was called up from Grand Rapids.

Drew Miller, picked up on waivers Wednesday, will replace Maltby on the fourth line with Justin Abdelkader and Brad May.
