Jagr Needs That Tax Form

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,

Jaromir Jagr considers his former accountant the Six Million Dollar Man. The former Penguins star sued Richland accountant Gary Schick on Tuesday, demanding he turn over a tax form that was supposed to be filed with the IRS in 2003. The lawsuit, filed in Allegheny County Common Pleas Court, claims that if Jagr does not get the form, it will cost him $6 million. "Whatever I had, I turned over to his attorney or his new accountant," said Schick, of Harmony, Butler County. "I don't know what I can fight here. I turned it all over."

Legace Should Play With A Chip On His Shoulder

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from St. Louis Today,

Once again, Blues president John Davidson proved he is serious about putting a competitive team on the ice this season. He signed free-agent goaltender Manny Legace to a free-agent deal Tuesday, summoning the longtime Red Wing to compete with incumbent Curtis Sanford for the starting job. This move is a no-brainer. Although Sanford did a splendid job under tough circumstances last season, he was the only battle-tested goaltender on the roster. He is also coming back from a major knee injury.

The Mouth Finally Finds A Home

Blog: KK Hockey By IwoCPO

Posted by Bill Houlihan It's been a few days since my first rambling bit of prose here at the Korner. A variety of reasons have delayed my return: vacation and an incredibly slow couple of days in the hockey world. But, that changed slightly today when Manny Legace signed with St. Louis, traditional whipping boys of the Wings. As we've all pointed out several times in other venues, Manny was the scapegoat when Edmtonton dispatched the Wings this Spring. And deservedly so. His mouth had turned a typically mild-mannered room against him, and it didn't just start after letting in 3 third-period goals in the clincher. Manny's mouth started to do him in during the lockout when his occasional rant made its way into the papers. His instinct to find the nearest nest of microphones didn't end with the lockout. If he wasn't jumping the chain of command (Babcock) and going straight to the media with his claims that he was "ready to start" after an injury, then he was admitting to anyone who'd listen that he lied to the Wings trainers and coaches about his condition to get back in the lineup. Hiding injuries is one thing, but admitting that you pulled a fast one on the organ-I-zation is another.

Legace To St. Louis

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Detroit News,

It took awhile, but goalie Manny Legace finally landed a job. Legace signed a one-year contract (terms weren't immediately available) Tuesday afternoon with the St. Louis Blues, where he'll compete for the starting job with Curtis Sanford. "It's a good fit for me," said Legace of the Blues, who've added forwards Doug Weight (Warren), Bill Guerin, Martin Rucinsky and Dan Hinote, and defenseman Jay McKee through free agency this summer. "I'm excited about the moves they've made, and the excitement they've created. It's a good city, a good sports city, and I'm excited about what the future holds."

“Stand-Up” Defenseman

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Kevin Truelson, a defenseman in the ECHL has been blogging! He has potential...

"When electricians lose power, I laugh." "When you yell at people on TV, they can't hear you." "When someone says 'I'm not gonna lie to ya,' are they lying the rest of the time?" "Today, someone asked me when I was gonna start running. I said 'as soon as someone starts chasing me.'" "Sunburn update: still burning, shedding and oozing."
