Do you really think Osgood will steal any games from us? NO.  Are you scared Theo will?  YES!

How’d that work out for you?

Eat it Dive fans.  Three more times.

What a Difference a Year Makes

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From James Duthie at The Good, The Bad and The Duthie:

Exactly one year ago, Jeremy Roenick strolled into our studio for the start of the second round of the 2007 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Not surprisingly, it was a Rock Star entrance.  He was late (plane’s fault), arriving just as our first intermission was beginning.  He had not rehearsed, not been given a single tip on which camera to look at, how long to talk for, or how to deal with a producer yapping in his ear.

Of course, none of that mattered.  The only thing Roenick does better than play hockey is…talk.  He was more comfortable in the first 30 seconds on television than some are after 10 years in the business.  He said smart things, dumb things, outrageous things.  He waved his arms madly in the air like he was in the middle of a dance floor whenever we first came live to studio.

Groin Problem Sidelines Forsberg

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via All Things Avs,

Another out of the blue groin pull for Foppa. Won’t play tonight.

Unbelievable. There’s always something. What a blow to the Avalanche that is.

Total series killer. Wings in four or five now.

Oh No He Din’t….It’s a Game 1 Live Blog

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Once again, for the second time the last three games, I’ll be missing the live blog tonite, DVRing the game and sitting through an official
function trying not to soil the cloth of our nation.  I’ll be receiving your comments and emails throughout and won’t read a single one.  Don’t
try to send me notes and trick me either, the ones titled, “Your House Is On Fire”.  You almost got me last time but it didn’t work.

Caught Moonlighting

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Alanah McGinley at Yahoo,

I’m not sure I’m the perfect person to eulogize the Anaheim Ducks with snarky little cracks—after all, I’m a Vancouver Canucks fan, and clearly Canucks’ fans have no business trashing anyone these days.  But I can still enjoy their demise just a little bit (err… a lot) and Ducks fans can take heart by just reminding me how your guys dismantled my team a year ago, alrighty? Alright then.

read on and a great job by Alanah.  I just hope her next ‘obit’ is for another team west of the Mississippi!

Modry a Scratch for Tonight

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From CBC,

The Philadelphia Flyers will be without regular defenceman Jaroslav Modry Thursday night when they open their NHL Eastern Conference semifinal series in Montreal.

Modry will travel to the Czech Republic on Saturday for the burial of his father, Jaroslav Modry Sr., who died last week following a seven-month battle with colon cancer.

“The arrangements were set,” Flyers coach John Stevens said of Modry. “We’re going to make sure he has enough time to get back and take the time that he needs.  He’ll have plenty of time to pay his respects, and then take whatever time he needs to rejoin the team.”

continued… with our condolences

Some words on Modry from NHL.com’s Mike Morreale, written last week.

NHL Conference Call with Lindy Ruff and Barry Trotz

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

On today’s NHL conference call for the media, the guests were Buffalo Sabres’ coach, Lindy Ruff, and Nashville Predators’ coach Barry Trotz. The coaches were invited to help preview the semifinal round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.


Here is the transcript from the Q&A.


Q. I wanted to ask you both, if you were to make a pick here of the final four teams in each conference, why wouldn’t you pick the team that did best against your own team? For instance, Buffalo did well against Montreal and Philly but 0-4 against both Pittsburgh and the Rangers. Nashville did well against Detroit and Colorado but 0-4 against San Jose, and 3-1 against Dallas.

ESPN Experts Chime In

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

With the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs kicking off Thursday, our experts took some time to ponder what lies ahead. ESPN.com’s Scott Burnside, ESPN The Magazine’s E.J. Hradek and ESPN analyst Barry Melrose answer these 10 burning questions:

Who will self-destruct first, Sean Avery or Georges Laraque?

Burnside: Avery. That’s an easy one. Both players understand their roles, but Avery has to play closer to the edge than Laraque.

Hradek: Avery has a better chance to self-destruct because he’ll get more ice time than Mr. Laraque. Avery is an important part of the Rangers’ attack. As such, he gets 15-20 minutes per game. Laraque is a fourth-liner who sees very limited minutes. The Pens’ best pest is Jarkko Ruutu. He could out-Avery Avery.

Melrose: I say Avery.

The Puck Is About To Drop

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bob Duff at NBC Sports,

Could it be better?

Maybe a little bit.

An Alexander Ovechkin-Sidney Crosby-Evgeni Malkin threesome in the second round would have left every National Hockey League executive salivating.

Regardless, the drool must still be forming in many mouths at the NHL’s head office among those whose main goal is to sell the game to the United States audience.

The second-round matchups in the Stanley Cup playoffs are intriguing on all four fronts.
