Renney Not Happy

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the New York Times,

“There’s no spell on us,” Renney said. “We were brutal. It’s us. We are awful against these guys. We have no concept of camaraderie, no concept of team play, no concept of circling the wagons to go play these guys intelligently. We beat ourselves.”
Renney’s anger stemmed from the fact that the Rangers not only should have learned something about playing the Islanders in three previous losses, but also that they had only recently pulled themselves out of a seven-game losing streak. That skid had been so long and bitter that Renney hoped its lessons would hold the team’s attention for a while.
“There’s a certain responsibility that goes along with being a winning team in this league,” Renney said. “Just because you run off four in a row after losing seven doesn’t mean that you’ve arrived anywhere.
“We were perfect for the New York Islanders today. We were exactly what they needed.”

There’s No Place Like Denver, No Place Like Denver

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

You know, blowing out the Dive in Denver isn't as fun. If the Wings are going to win there, and there's no reason to think otherwise since they've done nothing but win in Denver since '03, it's much more fun to watch the "announced 18,007" collapse back in their seats after a tight one. Admittedly, considering the post I made yesterday, which some in the Rocky Mountain time zone considered in poor taste (note to Av bloggers: sarcasm does NOT equal anger. When I write angry, it's rarely about Denver because we don't lose to Denver), I was feeling a little pressure.

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

Minnesota’s Derek Boogaard runs into a wall in Calgary’s Eric Godard tonight.  From HF’s Quick Hits:

Boogaard went to the penalty box, but didn’t spend much time there as he left and went to the lockerroom shortly after.  The inside word is Boogaard has suffered a concussion and will miss some time now.  Hopefully he recovers quickly.

from Pierre Lebrun of the CP via Canada.com,

The red-hot Vancouver Canucks and Phoenix Coyotes scream up the standings. Our totally subjective and weekly ranking of the league’s 30 clubs:
1. Buffalo Sabres. First team in the NHL to reach the 30-win plateau.
2. Nashville Predators. Welcome back Tomas Vokoun. Keep an eye behind you on Chris Mason.
3. Anaheim Ducks. Trying to survive with key injuries.

Gaborik And His Ball

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

Gaborik, the Minnesota Wild’s star forward, is exactly one game into his comeback from a serious groin/stomach ailment that kept him out of the line-up for the previous 34 games — and he and that stability ball are going to become very well-acquainted in the foreseeable future.
“They already are,” said Doug Risebrough, the Wild’s general manager, with a laugh.
Risebrough, of course, is equally well-acquainted with the sort of ailment that Gaborik has been fighting throughout his career. A groin injury eventually ended Risebrough’s career in 1987 and even in the last few years that he did play, he devoted almost as much energy to preparing for games than he did playing them.

Canadiens Shake Flu Bug

Blog: KK Hockey By George Malik

from Sportsnet:

HC Connected: With the flu bug no longer an issue for the Montreal Canadiens, the dressing room along with all sticks and equipment have been disinfected and the Habs are ready to take on the Atlanta Thrashers Tuesday. Cristobal Huet will get the start in goal.
It’s not all clear on the injury front, however. Montreal will be without Radek Bonk (stiff neck), Garth Murray (hand) and Steve Begin (back).

Thank goodness.  This bug is going around, and anybody who’s had it knows it is vicious

Bloggers Matter & More…

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from what I like to call the “State of the Caps” address from Ted Leonsis,

Many of you have probably heard me talk about the Washington Capitals’ approach to blogs; others may have even found this column via a blog, perhaps even my own – Ted’s Take. Allow me to expand a bit on our beliefs, our approach and what I believe the future holds for blogs in the NHL and professional sports.
If you know my background with AOL, you know that I’m passionate about the web and the way people use it. Blogs are nothing new to those of us who follow the web, but they have never been more powerful. Blogs gained widespread recognition during the 2004 presidential election for their ability to rally like-minded individuals and raise money for candidates. Over time, the number of blogs has exploded, while the best blogs have gained even more readership. Time magazine named “You” as its Man of the Year for a reason….
We might not always like what a blogger posts – but we won’t always agree with what the Post writes, either. Just because this is a new type of journalism, however, we aren’t going to shut them off from the access other writers receive. By inviting bloggers to interact with our staff and players, I believe they will gain a perspective that they otherwise could never have.

One Did, One Didn’t

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from E. M. Swift at Sports Illustrated,

You’ve heard it before: the best moves are sometimes the ones that a team’s management doesn’t make.
And so we have a tale of two cities—Philadelphia and Phoenix—that are heading in opposite directions.
Return with us now to Oct. 24, 2006. The Flyers, having played six of their first eight games on the road, have stumbled to a 1-6-1 start. They’d finished the previous season with 101 points, 45-26-11, and everyone has predicted in preseason polls that the Flyers would make the playoffs.
