All Emery

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from David Ambers at ESPN,

In this edition of Facing Off, we go behind the mask as the player known as "Razor" tells us why he is tougher than Senators enforcer Brian McGrattan, how much racism there is on the ice and why former teammate Dominik Hasek is misunderstood. Q: What kinds of racial issues did you face playing in a sport dominated by white players? A: Hockey is a game where guys trash talk a lot, so during the course of a game, I have had guys bring up racial stuff to try to get under my skin. I don't think that should happen, but at the same time, I don't shy away from trying to get under other guys' skin, too, so I choose the times to stick up for myself and choose times to let it slide off my back. But really, it has only happened a handful of times in my career. It hasn't happened in the NHL, but it did happen a few times in the American Hockey League and in Junior.

Buffalo- Ten Years Ago

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Kevin at BfloBlog takes a look back at the Ted Nolan lead Sabres team from 10 years ago.

There were some really fun players on that 1996-97 team, and Buffalo was in love with their grit and toughness. Remember the sections of fans that wore red hardhats to the games and generally went beserk whenever a check was thrown or the inevitable fight broke out with Boughner, Ray, May, Barnaby (although he was usually busy turtling), Peca, and Darryl Shannon? The only bad part was that 1996-97 was the year Pat LaFontaine played his final game as a Sabre. And of course the lasting memory we have was Derek Plante ripping one off Tugger’s glove in overtime of game seven, the team rushing the ice, and an exhuberant Ted Nolan jumping up and down behind the bench.

Testing, Testing

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Tennessean,

When the Predators took the ice on Tuesday morning, they were not in their usual gear. Instead, the team was donned in a slicker, tighter, more streamlined version of their practice garb, which was produced by Reebok and was being tested by the NHL as it prepares to introduce new uniforms for the 2007 season. Nashville was the first team to wear the latest version of the jerseys, and Colorado will be next. The new style will also be worn by players at the NHL All-Star game in Dallas Jan. 24.

Lupul Faces Old Team

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Robin Brownlee of the Edmonton Sun,

What's more, Lupul would like nothing more than to light up J.S. Giguere like a cheap cigar tonight and help the Oilers deliver the Ducks their first loss of this season. He'd like to make a statement to everybody watching, Brian Burke included. "I don't think it will be weird. It'll be exciting," Lupul says. "It's a game I've had circled on my calendar since the day the schedule came out. I've been thinking about it a lot. ''There's nothing I'd like to do more than go in there and score a couple of goals and beat them."

Growing The Sport

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the News & Observer,

Competing for attention in a crowded U.S. sports and entertainment market, hockey players have extra incentive to get involved in the NHL's efforts to expand its popularity. Under the labor agreement, players are entitled to 54 percent of league-wide revenue. "I think these guys recognize that growing this sport is one of the key issues," said Ken Kim, the NHL Players' Association's senior director of business. With the input of player business reps, the league has launched a series of humorous promotional spots featuring Crosby, Philadelphia Flyers forward Peter Forsberg and other players reminding people that the hockey season has started. "For us, that's really groundbreaking," Kim said. "We've never had this much of a say in the marketing of the game."
