Edmonton Talks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

MacTavish, Pronger and Pisani conference after last night's game.

Q. Craig, can you just talk about what you're seeing out of Michael Peca and him stepping his game up at just the right time? COACH MacTAVISH: Yeah. It looks like another huge goal. Great goal. Break-away goal. Blocked the terrific shot himself at the top corner, and you know, it looked like it was going to be the insurance goal and should have been given the circumstances of the game. But he's played exceptionally well. And he's played lots of hockey. Our team has played lots of hockey. We played ten games in an every-other-day stretch, and it's taking its toll on us right now, and we've got to win the game Thursday and get the horses to the barn and get a little rest.

Bettman At His Best

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, Gary Bettman was in the building and, you'd figure, was savouring the scene.... "These teams all embody the new NHL. Too many franchises were in too much trouble and couldn't be competitive.'' There are those who think this Stanley season, reduced to small markets Carolina, Buffalo, Anaheim and Edmonton with the game predominantly on OLN in the U.S.A. is a waste. "We don't look at that. We look at what is going on on the ice. It's terrific. "Half the people seem to suggest it's a negative because the major markets aren't represented. The other half seem to think having these four teams in the Conference Finals shows the new NHL is a success and is a breath of fresh air." more

Capturing The Fan

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Edmonton Journal via the Chronicle Herald,

Filmmaker Simon Dekker has a simple definition of a sports fan — someone who believes. For the past few weeks, Dekker has been travelling to cities throughout North America filming hockey fans to find out why ordinary people get so emotionally involved in professional sports. Using the NHL playoffs as his backdrop, he is exposing fankind’s deepest secrets.... Dekker said he’s not trying to capture wire climbers, police confrontations or women flashing their breasts. Rather, he said he wants to find out why fans have an "unending pursuit for recognition, belonging and glory." Dekker hasn’t seen any celebrations in California. Parking lots in San Jose and Anaheim are empty within 15 minutes of the end of the game, he said, and there are no traffic jams.

Good In The Long Run

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

This is what happens, ladies and gentlemen, when the NHL uses its powers for good, not evil. Instead of debating "The Code" and whether Steve Moore deserved what he got, this country is seriously taking steps to develop a better game based on speed, skill and hitting without all the hooking, holding, tripping and interference that our children have been taught as more important than stickhandling and scoring goals for the last 15 to 20 years. Imagine that.

No Diving Zone

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via the Globe and Mail,

Only two games into the NHL's Eastern Conference final and the coaches are already going at it. A day after Hurricanes head coach Peter Laviolette said he felt some Buffalo players were diving in the third period of Monday's 4-3 win by Carolina, Sabres head coach Lindy Ruff mounted his own attack. "They got some good calls on some of their diving antics early in the game," Ruff said after Tuesday's practice at HSBC arena.

Maven Talk

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler of MSG Network,

-Don’t be surprised if Sergei Samsonov winds up in San Jose this Summer. -An interesting role player who becomes Unrestricted this summer is Dan Hinote, who is one of five players still on the Avs’ roster from the 2001 Stanley Cup team. Of course, there’s the matter of Rob Blake’s return and whether Joe Sakic will stay or go. If the Avs lose either, they can forget about a playoff berth for the next two years.
