Not Fair

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

This just in: Life isn't fair, as Andy Murray, the now former coach of the Los Angeles Kings, learned — or probably had reinforced to him — just after suppertime on Tuesday when he was fired after almost seven years on the job. Murray's greatest failing as a coach was the inability to keep his star players out of sick bay.

Too Much Ice Time

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Hamilton Spectator,

It wasn't that long ago that competitive minor hockey players might be on the ice for games once or twice a week with a practice thrown in. No longer. Today's high-level rep players can be skating five or six times a week while playing 60 to 80 games a season. ...Talented kids who concentrate on one activity have a better chance to become an elite player in that sport, anyway. That's the theory. But it may be completely wrong.

Call Up Mogilny

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the NY Post,

Outscored 19-7 in dropping four of five, the Devils' 2006 playoff berth is similarly slipping away because their offense has vanished. Last night's 2-1 loss to the Flyers was the second of 11 against teams now holding playoff berths in their final 15, and the Devils' second straight such loss. The trade deadline is over, and Alexander Mogilny still languishes while receiving his $3.5 million salary in Albany, dispatched there in January. Whatever Lamoriello said about not bringing him back, he should eat those words. It's time to try anything.

Andre Roy Stands Up For Crosby

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Ottawa Sun,

Angry at seeing Andrej Meszaros hit Sidney Crosby on or close to his left knee in a controversial third-period collision, the Penguins tough guy stood up from his seat at the bench and slammed his stick on the boards. "He's allowed to get hit," he said of Crosby, "but he is a franchise player. And you've got that ugly mutt skating across, going for his knee. They want a clean NHL ... and you wonder why you have incidents like Todd Bertuzzi.

NHL Hoping For Long Run By Rangers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Sporting News,

The NHL would never admit it, but I know the greatest commissioner in sports, Gary Bettman, is secretly praying that two large markets like the Rangers and the Los Angeles Kings make deep runs in the playoffs. I'll settle for the Rangers and the Red Wings, because of Detroit's interest and passion for hockey.

Travels With Stan

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler of MSG Network,

-In case you’re wondering which are the two most- traveled NHL clubs, the answer is Vancouver (air mileage: 49,081) and Colorado (46,874). The Islanders are on the other end with only 19,994 air miles. -Ted Saskin deserves a chance to establish himself as a capable NHLPA leader. Unfortunately a combination of hate and jealousy directed at TS from a couple of disgruntled agents already has pockmarked his regime.
