Havlat Close To Return

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Chicago Daily Herald,

It couldn’t be going any better for the Blackhawks. Check that. How about welcoming Martin Havlat back into the lineup for Tuesday’s game at Minnesota? Coach Denis Savard will make a decision on Havlat’s return either today or Tuesday, but even if Havlat were to need another game or two to make sure the ankle he sprained back in October is 100 percent, the Hawks have confidence they can keep winning without him.
continued update 2:49pm, via the Chicago Blackhawks,
Right wing Martin Havlat will travel with his teammates to Minnesota but will not be in the lineup for tomorrow night's game against the Wild. "When he's ready, we want him back for the rest of the year, not just for five or 10 games," coach Denis Savard said. "He's really, really close, but we want him playing without any hesitation." Havlat had a good practice Monday and Savard wants to see a couple more from him before making a decision about Thursday's home clash with the Coyotes. Havlat skated with the Hawks' 4th line of Karl Stewart, Martin St. Pierre and Brandon Bochenski at practice. Savard hasn't decided who Havlat's linemates will be when he returns, but said he will definitely get plenty of ice time.

No Ego Problem With Hossa

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Wes Goldstein of CBS Sportsline,

Hossa is arguably the NHL's best player and has been a scoring star since debuting as a teenager in 1998 with the Ottawa Senators, so he's certainly entitled to one. It just would be tough to stroke in an area that fawns first and foremost over Michael Vick and is only slowly warming to the improved product on the ice. Besides, it's not only "back home" where the spotlight doesn't shine. A flashy wing whose production is often as electrifying as it is consistent, Hossa doesn't have particularly great name recognition around the league. In spite of being tied for the NHL lead in goals, Hossa finds himself only ninth in the fan voting among forwards for the All-Star Game.

Bring Back Fighting

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated,

I have to admit it: My NHL includes fighting. Not necessarily the Slap Shot-style line brawls of the 1970s, although I enjoyed them back in the day. The occasional mano y mano tussle is just fine. I offer up my position today because these are dark times. The anti-fighting forces are aligning. And for the sake of a game that risks further marginalization, they have to be stopped.

Bellowing From The Moose

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TBM at NBC Sports,

It’s hard to remember, but 10 years ago the Panthers were the darlings of South Florida, when the team’s Cinderella run to the Stanley Cup Final made the Panthers a hot ticket. Plastic rats used to rain down on the ice when Florida scored, and the likes of Don Shula and Fred Couples were regulars at the games. These days there are no rats to be found (there generally aren’t on a sinking ship) and the Panthers would be hard-pressed to get the likes of Mike Shula and Fred Funk to attend one of their games. In fact, they’re hard-pressed to get anyone to go to their games, let alone pay for the privilege. Florida is a perfect storm of bad ownership and incompetent management, which generally go hand in hand. Alan Cohen is the team’s principal owner, meddler and hirer/firer of Mike Keenan, which seems to happen every other year in the Sunshine State.

Ovechkin Takes A Hit

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John Vogl of the Buffalo News,

But Ovechkin made the first misstep of his career Saturday against the Buffalo Sabres. He delivered a late hit from behind against Buffalo co-captain Daniel Briere, who crashed headfirst into the boards. Briere avoided serious injury. But in at least one part of the world, Ovechkin's surging popularity took a similar hit. "I have a lot of respect for Ovechkin as a player. I like his enthusiasm," Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller said. "I know the kid has a zest for life and a joy for the game. He wants to be at all ends of the offense, making hits, but that had to be the stupidest hit I've ever seen, and I hope he gets punished."

Name The Player

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Any idea who this player is?

•What I'm thinking I'll do after hockey is become a bus driver for my kids. I have three boys. Ryder, who's 5. Brody, who's 3. And Stone, who's a year old. I just want to be a part of their lives and be there for all the things they're doing. I think that's pretty much the most important thing for me after hockey. And I'd like to somehow to give back. •As a kid, my favorite TV show probably was "Hockey Night in Canada." •If I could have dinner with any three people in history, I'd pick Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eddie Vedder and Howard Stern.

Dirty Move

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Columbus Dispatch,

Edmonton goaltender Dwayne Roloson took the tactic to a new low Saturday, when he whacked Nash between the legs early in the Blue Jackets’ 4-0 win in Rexall Place. "I was in a lot of pain," Nash said. "That’s a dirty, dirty move. He hit someone where it hurts the most. "That’s the first time that’s ever happened to me. I’ve been cracked in the back of the legs or in the back. That’s bad enough. But it’s a dirty move, spearing somebody between the legs. It’s unbelievable to me that he would do that."
