Paris & Theodore

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Canada.com,

Paris Hilton swears she’s not looking for love – but did she find a little bit of lovin’ in Toronto? The actress/singer seemed quite taken by Colorado Avalanche goalie Jose Theodore at a party following the MuchMusic Video Awards. Witnesses say Hilton, 25, chatted and held hands with Theodore, a 29-year-old native of Laval, Quebec, at the Courthouse in Toronto before leaving together. The pair showed up at the Ultra club and partied until the wee hours of the morning.

Report- Weight Playing

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Leafs Lunch reporting Weight in tonight. added 1:57pm, from the morning skate at ESPN,

Russo: Could you imagine if Weight plays tonight? Burnside We have two words for Doug Weight; Ethan Moreau. Actually four words, Ethan Moreau, Raffi Torres. Burnside: Here's the thing about the Doug Weight mystery. Do you think the Edmonton Oilers care at all if the Canes use a center with a gimpy shoulder or not? The answer is no. They do not care. What is a given is that, like Erik Cole on Saturday, if Weight plays he will be punished.

Why You Should Watch

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Have your non-hockey fans read this. from Jim Kelley of Sportsnet,

I have no idea who will win tonight's Game 7 showdown between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Edmonton Oilers for the Stanley Cup, but I do know one thing: this is why we watch. Think about it, is there a more compelling battle for a championship then what we've witnessed so far? I admit to a fairly large hockey bias, but I truly don't see this kind of intensity in the NBA Final, a series where the only compelling interest seems to be whether or not Mark Cuban, a brash owner from Dallas, or Shaquille O'Neal will win another title with a subplot regards whether or not O'Neal will make his free throws. Baseball, don't even go there. The Super Bowl? The ones I remember best where the handful of contests that weren't blowouts or repeats of an in-season meeting when the two teams played each other sometimes just weeks before the "big game". Hockey? OK, I'll concede that few people in the United States are watching, but you can't convince me that the NHL hasn't won over at least a few thousand new fans via the games the Edmonton Oilers and Carolina Hurricanes have played so far.

MacTavish This Morning

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Q. Did you see their skate at all? Doug Weight was on the ice. What did you think? And do you think he will play tonight? Is he a Larry Murphy decoy? COACH MacTAVISH: Tell me the Larry Murphy story. He might play too? (Laughter) I hope he does. He hasn't played in a couple of years. I have no idea. I think it would be tough. Whenever you see a guy in a sling, you know, 48 hours earlier, you would think it would be difficult. But you know, they saved the horse in that race, Barbaro, whenever he might run again, I don't know. Q. All those months just in the back, what can you say to a team at this point going into Game 7 that you haven't said already at some point? Anything more to be said? COACH MacTAVISH: I think it is just important to keep your routine the same, and we have been able to do that through these Playoffs. And today we have kept the routine the same. It is a little different because, you know, it's your last morning skates and last pre-game meeting, all that sorts of stuff. So just really keep the focus on what you have done well, what you need to prevent, what you need to accomplish in the game. Not get, you know, not try and take a scatter gun approach to the game where you try and talk about too many things. Focus in on three or four areas on both sides of the puck and try and accomplish those things. If you do that, you should be able to win the game. But just keep the routine the same.

Everyone Is Happy- Almost

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via the Globe and Mail,

A new poll suggests Canadian hockey fans are overwhelmingly happy that the NHL is throwing the rulebook at its players. The survey by Decima Research, conducted June 15-18 in the heat of the Edmonton Oilers-Carolina Hurricanes Stanley Cup final, gave a Don Cherry-esque two thumbs up to the rule changes. By a margin of more than three to one, respondents said the changes made the game more appealing, compared to those who felt it detracted.

Weight Skated This Morning

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

NHL Live reported Weight skated this morning. They had Olczyk on too, he said he would probably take the pre-game skate too but he doubts he would play, but you never know. Weight yesterday mentioned it felt like an 8 week injury... added 12:18pm,

Q. Noticing Dougie Weight took the skate this morning. Rule him in or out at this point? COACH LAVIOLETTE: We have got lineup decisions to make. Doug looked good out there this morning. I said he wasn't going to be in Game 6. Was asked about Game 7. We'll make those decisions when the game comes. But he looked good. Q. How has your team reacted emotionally to what is gone on the last couple of games to prepare for Game 7? COACH LAVIOLETTE: Well there hasn't been a lot of time. We flew all day yesterday and got them in here today and had some meetings. Our guys have responded well all year whenever we haven't played a very good game, so it's not about a regular season or a long playoff run. It is about one game and guys feel pretty confident. Q. Do you feel your roster is such -- and maybe this had a little bit to do with the mentality of Cole coming back -- but your roster is such in the way you use your forwards you can afford to have a guy in the lineup that if he can go for a few shifts okay, if not, that's okay too.

Deadspin- Strike The Strike

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Deadsin has admitted they are not hockey fans. So they need to be informed, it wasn't a strike, it was a lockout!!! No more strikes, I don't want to see that word again! Coming from a huge union town, there is a difference.
