Havlat Looking Forward to Ice Time

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via TSN,

"I'm sure there are a lot of people that say we paid too much,'' said Tallon. ''But there were other teams in the mix, too, there was competition for him. We know we paid a lot but we think we're getting value for it. We had to do something, we have to get interest back in the game here.'' ''I just want to be on the ice as much as I can because I think that's how I can help the team, when I'm out there - not if I'm sitting on the bench,'' said Havlat. ''I hope I'm going to be on the ice a lot in Chicago.''

#19 Goes To The Rafters

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TSN,

The Detroit Red Wings will officially retire Steve Yzerman's No. 19 during a pre-game ceremony on January 2, 2007 before the Wings face the Anaheim Ducks. ''For a long time, there was no doubt in ownership's mind that Steve Yzerman would play his entire career with the Detroit Red Wings and that his sweater would fittingly go up into the rafters along with the other all-time greatest Red Wing players - Abel, Delvecchio, Howe, Lindsay and Sawchuk,'' said Red Wings senior vice president Jim Devellano. ''As to picking a date, we wanted to be sure that this will be a very special evening and with that, it takes a lot of planning.''

Wings Maintain Their Class

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Sporting News,

But really, folks, just how terrible will this team be? It certainly remains the class of the weak Central Division and is coming off consecutive Presidents' Trophy seasons. The only thing the Wings haven't done is make a deep playoff run. Because of that, both seasons were judged as failures. Every team should fail so miserably. Yzerman's leadership void is one thing. What the Wings need is to play mean.
more added 2:54pm, from Wes Goldstein of CBS Sportsline,
Look for a change at the top, with the significantly improved Predators set to end Detroit's stranglehold on the division. The Wings are still among the league's most talented teams, but Nashville has gotten bigger, more skilled and a little grittier, which makes a very good team even better.

Media Credentials For Bloggers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Eric at Off Wing Opinion has a great and much needed post that every hockey blogger should read.

Earlier this year, Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis asked me to create a set of guidelines for the team to issue press credentials to bloggers. After a few days of knocking it around with Ted and Caps Media Relations Director Kurt Kehl, we were able to come up with a finished product. I'm publishing it here in hopes that both franchises and individual bloggers can use it as the basis for creating an ongoing relationship.
Hopefully, other teams that have not even bothered to respond to blogger requests, will use this as an example and establish their own guidlines.

Little Interest In Domi

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Canada.com,

Tie Domi's dream of retiring as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs vanished when he was bought out of his contract this summer. And now the 36-year-old, who vowed he would never play for another NHL team, is reportedly close to hanging up his skates for good. "Right now we're weighing our options and deciding if he's going to play or not, as opposed to negotiating a new contract," said Domi's agent Pat Morris, adding there has been little interest around the league for his client. "The jump-off point could come during training camp."

from the Boston Globe,

Dickie Moore Hurt In Car Crash

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Red Fisher of the Montreal Gazette,

"Did you hear the news?" a friend asked. He paused. Then: "Did you hear the news?" he asked a second time, and this time, there was a quiver in his voice. "What news?" "It's Dickie," he said. "He was in an accident. He's in bad shape." It happened in Dorion on Sunday afternoon, under a pelting rain reducing visibility to near-zero. My lifelong friend Dickie Moore had been sideswiped on the driver's side by a truck. Forty-five minutes passed before rescuers were able to remove him from his vehicle. He was rushed to the Montreal General, where doctors learned he had suffered spinal and neck injuries. Broken ribs. There were fears his kidney had been punctured. Massive bleeding.
more update 3:53pm, from the CP via the Globe and Mail,
Hockey Hall of Fame left-winger Dickie Moore was removed from intensive care Wednesday, three days after suffering serious injuries in a car accident. Moore, 75, suffered multiple injuries, including fractures to his neck and lower back, when his car was struck by a truck while pulling out of a restaurant parking lot during an intense rainstorm Sunday. His daughter, Lianne Moore, said he was in great pain, but he was not paralysed and there was no damage to his spinal cord. "Thank God he's OK," she said.

No “Shots” From Quinn

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Pat Quinn made some comments in the past few days and explains they were falsely interpreted. Comments like this... from the Toronto Star,

"But you know what builds the logo? Winning hockey games, that's what builds a logo. Anyone else that says they can come in and make something work. ... It's like in Toronto, you don't need to be the village monkey to do anything. That thing was sold out when it was just a lousy team. So let the people that are given the job to run the hockey team, let them run it."

O’Neill Thinking Hockey- Not Retirement

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Toronto Sun,

Jeff O'Neill might have filled a Maple Leafs uniform last season, but mentally he usually was nowhere to be found. That won't be the case this season, the 30-year-old said yesterday. Now more than one year removed from the death of a brother, O'Neill is ready to put his mind back on his job. "I feel like I am actually concentrating solely on hockey right now," O'Neill said after a workout at Lakeshore Lions Arena. "Last year was such a blur, I did not get a chance to be thankful for being a Toronto Maple Leaf. It was just a really weird year and I am looking forward to a fresh start."
