8th Spot In The West Is Up For Grabs

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

More and more, it looks as if one of the two Canadian teams in the Western Conference playoff race — the Edmonton Oilers or the Vancouver Canucks — will miss out on post-season play altogether this season. ...Colorado owns the tie-breaker against Edmonton too, so the Oilers' season could come down to getting it done on the ice themselves in the next week and desperately looking for help elsewhere (hello Wayne!, it's Kevin Lowe on the phone). It's not an ideal scenario, but when you leave so many points on the table so often in one season, it may be the best they can hope for. But which one?

No To The NHL In Hartford

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Hartford Reporter,

Before the National Hockey League returns to Hartford, pigs will sprout wings and fly. Donald Trump's eyes will well up, he'll cry out "I just can't do it," and he'll hire all the contestants. Barry Bonds will say he's sorry. In other words, it won't happen. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman has no interest in a return to Hartford, a smallish market nestled between Boston and New York.

A Beautiful Day For A Ball Game

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

I am leaving for an annual holiday here in Detroit- catching all of the Opening Day festivities and the home opener of the Detroit Tigers. Posts may be a little limited today but I am prepared with pocket pc in hand. Temperature in the low 60s, and the Tigers are 5-1, better enjoy it while it lasts.

Iggy’s Dad Steps In

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

Turns out Jarome isn't the only Iginla to play a big role in the Battle of Alberta of late. On a night when the Flames captain spearheaded a line that buried the Oilers 4-1 last Saturday, his father Elvis stepped up to play a key peacemaker role on the Rexall Place concourse.

The Voting Process

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Instead of posting every writer's picks for the different awards, which can become a boring read very quickly, how about some information about the voting process. from Anthony J. SanFilippo of the Delaware County Times,

Each member considered "in good standing" of the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association will have an individual vote count in the voting for the Hart, Calder, Norris, Selke, Lady Byng, and Masterton trophies. This is a significant change from years past where participating chapters of the Association were given a limited number of votes based on the number of regular print media that covered the team. In years past, the Philadelphia chapter received two votes, which is actually one of the larger contingents, as most member cities got only one vote. But now, it is up to the chapter chairman of each city to determine how many members of their chapter are in "good standing."

OLN Has Improved

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Philadelphia Flyers,

Fortunately for NHL fans and OLN, everything has improved as the Stanley Cup playoffs near. Further good news: OLN hopes to air playoff games every night. "We had four or five weeks basically to prepare," Marc Fein, OLN's senior vice president of programming and production, said from his Stamford, Conn., office. "We had no time to build a (studio) set. You're only as strong as your weakest link. But everyone pulled together and got the right people on board. We're pretty happy and proud, especially recently, how the telecasts have been."

Who Starts For Buffalo

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

The Sabres are about to make their first postseason appearance since 2001, and neither of their goalies has been there before. Some fans, given the club's erratic results of late, might wonder whether Ryan Miller or Martin Biron will be the Game One starter. Last week, after Biron won consecutive starts over the Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators, Ruff admitted hard decisions are ahead and wouldn't name Miller the No. 1 netminder heading into the playoffs.
