No Mandatory Shields

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Hockey News,

The American League has made visors mandatory for all players starting this season, but for players in the NHL the wearing of visors remains a discretionary option. Under terms of the collective bargaining agreement, any rule concerning use of visors must be agreed upon by the NHLPA. “The majority of our members feel that wearing a visor is a matter of individual preference,” said Mike Gartner, director of hockey affairs for the NHLPA. That doesn’t mean the NHLPA thinks the majority opinion is necessarily correct.

Still No Decision

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Pittsburgh Post- Gazette,

An NHL-imposed deadline passed yesterday with no immediate word on a response from or action taken by the Russian hockey federation. That leaves the status of Penguins prospect Evgeni Malkin -- who yesterday turned 20 -- uncertain. An NHL spokesman late yesterday said he did not know of any news from Russia or the IIHF, and a Penguins spokesman said the team had not heard anything.

It Just May Work

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mitch Albom of the Detroit Free Press,

I unroll my Joe Namath poster. I dig out my Mickey Lolich trading cards. "What are you doing?" my coworker asks. "Didn't you hear?" I say. "Dominik Hasek is back. He's the Red Wings' goalie again." "So?" he says. "So?" I say. "Who knows what's next?" I find my white shoes from the Billy (White Shoes) Johnson era. I pull them over my Fab Five gym shorts. I lift an old can of hairspray, Dry Control, by Vitalis.

Good News For TV Viewers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler of MSG Network,

-The NHL’s most vexing officiating problem - Diving - is being examined and re-examined, in the hopes of producing a better handle on the penalty next season. Meanwhile, don’t expect any notable rule changes. League officials believe both fans and players need another year to fully digest and acclimatize themselves to the new standard. -Expect some startling improvements in team telecasts next season. We’re told the NHL’s pro-active, new TV guru, John Shannon, made an emphatic impression with team production people at the recent league-wide meetings. The results will be on screen starting in October! -John Davidson means business in St. Louis. He’s added Doug Weight, Jay McKee, Bill Guerin and Dan Hinote. Expect a vet goalie to arrive within the next weeks. How about Manny Legace?

A Seinfeldian Theme

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from William Houston of the Globe and Mail,

Sportswriters are generally viewed as occupational hazards by front-office officials — disliked, tolerated, occasionally respected, but hardly viewed as the type you'd want to bring into the organization. That's why Doug Risebrough's decision to make Boston Red Sox beat writer Chris Snow the Minnesota Wild's director of hockey operations did more than raise eyebrows. It was a shocker. Risebrough, the Wild's president and general manager, laughed when he was asked whether his move was met with disapproval by his National Hockey League colleagues. “What I've found most amusing is the reaction from the media,” he said. “They're saying, ‘What were you thinking?' I'm saying, ‘What's the big deal?'”

Take A Deep Breath

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the News & Observer,

Jones -- who broke the law by tearing jerseys down from Union Square statues dressed up for the Canes' playoff run -- blasted the Historical Commission for its silence about the jerseys during the 2002 playoffs and again this year. "Do you think Andrew Jackson, sitting majestically on his horse while wearing a Hurricanes jersey was awe-inspiring and thought provoking?" Jones said to the commission. "No, it was a distraction and derailed the purpose of the monument to both educate and honor."
