Tanguay Frustrated

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

Their partnership lasted just half-a-dozen games before it was dissolved by Calgary Flames coach Jim Playfair, but both Jarome Iginla and Alex Tanguay know that in professional hockey, things can change in a hurry. "I know, as players, the chemistry only comes when you both play well," said Tanguay, "and right now, I haven't been playing well, but Jarome is. So hopefully, I can start contributing a little more. That's been a little hard on me and a little frustrating, because I know I can be better."

Flyers Need Changes

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Loose Change at the Hockey News,

Peter Forsberg needs a new nickname. In case you haven’t heard Peter goes by the moniker of...gulp…Foppa. Isn’t that some sort of skin ailment that killed helpless African children in the 19th century? Sure, Daniel Alfredsson may look like a Muppet but Peter Forsberg is one. This has to change, quickly. Who wants to follow a man whose name resembles a term of endearment for your 96-year-old Croatian grandfather?

Jeff Carter Out With Broken Bone

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Philadelphia Flyers,

Flyers Strength and Conditioning Coach Jim McCrossin announced on Tuesday that forward Jeff Carter will be out of action for approximately six weeks due to a broken bone that was revealed following an MRI today. McCrossin: “Jeff had an MRI today performed on his left ankle which revealed that he sustained a fracture of the distal end of his left tibia. The injury is located on the inside of his left ankle area. He should be out for approximately six weeks. "Over the past couple of days the inflammation in Jeff’s ankle had subsided. He has been able to walk better, but he still had point tenderness over his ankle. Speaking with our medical staff we felt it was warranted to get an MRI and investigate his injury a little bit closer. The MRI did reveal a crack. "His ankle won’t be placed in a cast. He was placed in a walking boot. This way we will be able to treat him. We have him on bone stimulation right now and we will be able to maintain his conditioning.”

Edmonton Fans “Pathetic”; Hockey’s “Only A Game”

Blog: KK Hockey By IwoCPO

By Bill Houlihan Oh, and according to Jamie Fitzpatrick of Pro Ice Hockey, those raising funds in Alberta (yes, all of Alberta...Calgary fans are now donating, as well) are "misguided."

What's the most pathetic aspect of this pathetic story? That so many people take a hockey game so seriously? Or that so many can find no better use for their charitable dollars? (The article notes that nobody expects MacTavish to accept the money, which will ultimately go to charity. One blogger suggests the Canadian National Institute for the Blind. Ha-ha.)

Would Nedved Fit In Ottawa

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the blog of Chris Stevenson of the Ottawa Sun,

Interesting to note that apparently the Philadelphia Flyers have recalled centre Petr Nedved from the minors in the hope somebody will claim him. The Senators are in the market for a second-line centre and Nedved, when he’s motivated, would fit the bill.
