The Travels Of Tim Thomas

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the New York Times,

Goalies who have starred at the top level of Finnish hockey, the SM-liiga, are the soup du jour in the N.H.L. One who belongs in that category but has largely escaped notice is Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins.... “When I first went over,” Thomas, 32, said from Boston, “what helped was my experience with USA Hockey — I’d been on three tours during the summers, so I was used to the bigger ice. It wasn’t as big an adjustment as it might’ve been. They’re all good passing the puck, and there was no hook-and-hold. But I’d already seen it.”

Old School- Mickey Redmond Remembers “Toe” Blake

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Doug Ward at NHL.com,

To gain a greater appreciation for the game Mickey Redmond will never forget, it helps to understand the dynamic of the player-coach relationship that existed in the "Original Six" era of the NHL. In addition to having respect for Toe Blake, his Hall of Fame coach as a rookie with the Montreal Canadiens in 1967-68, Redmond says he had another sentiment. “I was deathly afraid of him,” Redmond, now a television analyst for the Detroit Red Wings, says with a chuckle.

Gordie Getting Better

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

As you probably know, Gordie Howe's wife Colleen suffers from Pick's Disease, or dementia. The last several months have been hard on him and the entire Howe family. But, he's slowly coming to grips with her condition. Via Slam,

"It's hard at times like this, at Christmas, because I don't know what to do. I was always thinking she would do this. We're going out later with Mark to go through the stores and come up with something." Through all of this, Howe remains a class act and wants nothing more than to remain in touch with the game and the fans who still flock to see him. "That's been my life," Howe said. "I try to be respectful to the game of hockey and its followers. That's because some wise old man told me if someone is interested enough in you to ask for your autograph, you should be interested enough to sign it."

Not Much Was Expected

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Elliotte Friedman of the CBC,

Monday afternoon, hours before he did colour on the Dallas-Detroit radio broadcast – he works for the Stars now – Hull reminisced about his career in the team’s hotel. It is The Headliner on Saturday’s pre-game show, and my biggest regret is that we just didn’t have time to include everything. Hull said other than believing he was good enough to play in the NHL, didn’t have enormous expectations. He was glad to be traded from Calgary, not because he didn’t like the city, but because there was no room on the roster for another right winger. “When Terry Crisp told me, I tried to hold back, but I couldn’t prevent the smile from coming to my face,” he said.

Saturday Morning Odds and Ends

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Despite traffic you wouldn't believe, Bubba's attempts to sabotage me several times across Tennessee, evil speed traps in Virginia and an amazing display of navigational ineptitude, I can happily report my safe arrival in Washington, DC. Having been here a little over 24 hours, you'd think that my presence in the seat of government would automatically give me some sort of insight into Andres Lilja's claims that he's being "politically" blackballed by the Wings. Alas, no. More on that in a moment.
