Vancouver Canucks Embracing New Media

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Rebecca Bollwitt at NowPublic:

A few weeks ago the streets and Skytrain stations of Vancouver were plastered with posters to advertise the new Canucks season. The theme, “We are All Canucks”, and the unique twist is that they used photos of players in plain-clothes, fans on the concourse, and snapshots of hockey bloggers and podcasters.


In the interest of disclosure, and as Rebecca also noted in her article, the Canucks campaign does feature myself and the other Crazy Canucks as well.

Given how much negative attention has been brought to the issue of NHL teams and fan-media in recent weeks, I just wanted to point out that there are some teams working hard to find a balance on this issue. In my experience, the Canucks themselves (you can check out their FanZone) have come a long way in recent years.

Notes From The Maven

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler at the Hockey Journal,

Has anyone stopped to think about the possibility of Sid Crosby burning out? The Kid is burdened with the Penguins’ captaincy; he’s the NHL’s poster boy, which creates huge time demands and he’s badgered in every city he visits. If he looks weary, there are reasons!

more hockey notes and opinions…

added 8:20pm, Just noticed A2Y pointed to the same article from Stan, sorry but The Sailor took me by surprise, he is a posting machine today!

Note to Stan: Might Be Time To Hang Them Up

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Stan Fischler’s been around a long time.  Not just on earth, but writing hockey.  I’m talking like 83 years.  So we respect him for that.

But, respect aside, I believe it might be time for the senile bastard to just fade…away.  Check this out.

Since Mike Babcock never lies, it’s worth noting that he calls his current Red Wings, “The best players I’ve ever been involved with.” (Excuse us while we wonder how the goaltending will hold up in April.)

The Value Of Your Team

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Michael Ozanian and Kurt Badenhausen of Forbes,

A stronger loonie helps teams north of the border, because they take in revenue in Canadian dollars, but pay their players in U.S. currency. Last season the value of the Canadian dollar increased 15% relative to the U.S. dollar. The average team value rose 10% during the past year, to $220 million. Five of the six Canadian teams —Montreal Canadiens, Vancouver Canucks, Ottawa Senators, Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers— rose in value more than the league average.

more with all types of sortables lists and fyi, the top 3 valued teams are the Leafs, Rangers and Canadiens.

Thrashers Coach Gets His Message Across

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike Knobler of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,

He (John Anderson) hadn’t yelled in the postgame locker room Tuesday night. He always prefers to deliver his assessment the next day, when he’s no longer swayed by game-night emotions that might lead him to say something he’ll later regret. But the sleepless overnight wait didn’t make Wednesday’s messsage any less forceful.

He laid down the law in one-on-one meetings with players, and he spoke at length with the entire team on the ice before practice. This was one of his first big tests as an NHL coach, and he made it clear he had no intention of failing it.

Another Alex In Washington

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from CBC,

Would it surprise you to learn that a certain Russian forward named Alex with the Washington Capitals currently leads the NHL in scoring?

No, not that Alex, the other one.

Alex Ovechkin is the reigning Art Ross and Hart Trophy winner, but the Washington winger is mired in a six-game goal drought and has only tallied a meagre five points through the first eight games of the season.

Lucky for the Capitals, though, that Alex Semin is scoring in bunches.

Who Wants Shanny

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

Nearly four months after becoming a free agent, Shanahan is putting himself onto the open market.

“I’ve told Rick [Curran] that I can no longer wait and that it’s time to move on,” Shanahan, referring to his agent, told The Post this afternoon. “Until now, Rick has been under instructions to tell inquiring teams that my focus was on re-signing with the Rangers, and that I was not accepting any other offers.

“That has changed.”

Pre-Poultry Potpourri

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

That’s right.  I used a French word in the post title.  I’m all eclectic now.

Looking at six hours until they drop the puck at that most traditional of hockey venues, The Honda Center.  Until then, a few ditties for you.

Panthers Having Financial Problems

Blog: The Puck Stops Here By PuckStopsHere

If a company has massive layoffs and makes multiple policy changes to save money such as stopping matching employee contributions to employees 401(k) and banning overnight and express mail, then it is usually a sign that the company is on shaky ground and may not be around much longer.  The Florida Panthers are doing this according to George Richards’s blog

The economy is taking its toll on the NHL and the weaker NHL markets will have some trouble.  Most of the more recent NHL markets including Florida, Nashville, Phoenix and Atlanta will be tested.  In good times, these markets have had trouble financially.  In bad times, they may not all make it.
