Kukla's Korner

The Winners Are Announced

Blog: KK Hockey By IwoCPO

Greg Wyshynkski at the Fourth Period has named Kukla's and Off Wing as his co-Blogs of the Year.

Both Paul Kukla and Eric McErlain have changed the face of hockey blogging, turning entertaining Web sites into fully-staffed, must-read daily visits. They've also landed some pretty plum gigs — Paul with NHL.com, Eric with NBCSports.com — and have championed the rights of the alternative media to become credentialed members of the press box. Kudos to both on an outstanding, and eventful, year.
What Greg doesn't say, but I will, is that both Eric and Paul have blazed a path for hockey bloggers. Their efforts, along with others, have established this medium's credibility in ways we never would have predicted a year ago. Congrats to both. added by Paul at 3:05pm, Thanks Greg for the props and IwoCPO for pointing this out, it is much appreciated.

Well Deserved

Greg Wyshynkski at the Fourth Period has named Kukla’s and Off Wing as his co-Blogs of the Year.

Both Paul Kukla and Eric McErlain have changed the face of hockey blogging, turning entertaining Web sites into fully-staffed, must-read daily visits. They’ve also landed some pretty plum gigs — Paul with NHL.com, Eric with NBCSports.com — and have championed the rights of the alternative media to become credentialed members of the press box.

Congrats to both.

Adding both Alanah and IwoCPO to the Korner was one of the smarter moves that I have made, we all look forward to a great 2007.

Khan(!): Chelios Out

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Chris Chelios has apparently fallen victim to the dreaded "undisclosed lower body injury," and won't be in the lineup tonite. He was apparently hurt in the third period Wednesday night. Khan(!) Weblog

It'll be just the second game Chelios has missed this season. Andreas Lilja will replace him. Robert Lang, who missed the last two periods because of a stomach virus, is fine and will play tonight. Mikael Samuelsson skated but won't play until Sunday, Babcock said.
Here's what former Deep Digger captain Ted Kulfan has to say about it in his blog. Kulfan/Detroit News
Have a great Christmas every one, and safe, happy, and prosperous New Year. No hockey talk today or tomorrow. Just enjoy the time with family and friends. We'll get back to hockey quick enough.
Thanks Ted.

Fisher Out With Knee Injury

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

It wasn’t a very merry Christmas for the Senators. And today’s revelation that Mike Fisher is out after being injured in Wednesday’s win over the N.Y. Islanders will certainly put a damper on New Year’s celebrations, too.
The Sens confirmed today that Fisher, who had just moved into the No. 1 centre slot on the club’s top line, is out indefinitely with a knee injury. He was hurt in the third period of Wednesday’s 2-0 victory over the New York Islanders at Scotiabank Place.

Got Sources?

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Oh, the stress.  Counting down the hours until the Wings and the hated Jackets renew their savage hostilities tonite in Nationwide. 

Meanwhile, he who charges idiots to read outlandish trade rumours is at it again.  Failed “musician” and icon of the idiots Dwayne Klessel claims he has “sources” in the Wing organ-I-zation.  These “sources” are feeding him amazing info. 

Anyway, according to a source in Detroit, the Wings have interest in Mike Comrie or Shane Doan.

Kozie Goes Unnoticed

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,

Over the course of his 15-year NHL career, Kozlov hasn’t garnered anywhere close to the amount of press or prestige as some of his fellow Russian-born NHLers. Nevertheless, he has been an integral part of Atlanta’s ascendancy in the standings this year and was among the league’s top scorers (15 goals and 43 points in 39 games) as of mid-November.
The 34-year-old is on pace to obliterate personal career bests of 36 goals and 73 points in a single season, two totals he set more than a decade ago as a Red Wing. But ask Kozlov what he’s doing differently this year and you’ll see that he is well-versed in the “Aw shucks, I can’t take all the credit” routine.

Marleau Leads Off The Ice Too

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Mercury News,

All of that is impressive. But if you want an even bigger reason the Mercury News is today naming Marleau the 2006 South Bay Sports Person of the Year . . . well, let me tell you about a phone call that happened last weekend.
Many of the Sharks do community work. But Marleau is usually the go-to man, according to Rob Jaynes, the Sharks’ director of fan development.
``He’s just one of those guys who loves doing that stuff,’’ Jaynes said. ``Last week, we heard from a family in Connecticut with three kids and their dad is in the final stages of ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease. They were Shark fans. I spoke with Patrick and he agreed to have me set up a call to the family last Friday.’‘

Get Rid Of Fighting Or The Instigator Rule

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Harford Courant,

Removing the fear of retribution has rid the sport of an unspoken code among players. Players in past generations thought twice about their conduct because there was the threat of retaliation.
It was part of the NHL.
“It’s self-policing,” Clement said. “It traces back through the history of hockey.”
Either the NHL should work toward eliminating fighting or it should embrace it as part of the sport. One way or another, the league needs to figure out what to do with an element of its sport that has been around since the first puck was dropped.
“I think it’s an inherent, important part of our sport,” Clement said. “It’s part of the heritage of our sport. ... I don’t like apologizing for the fighting.”
