The Maven- Crosby Not In Calder Race

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler of MSG Network,

By now it should be clear that Sid (Der Bingle) Crosby will not win The Calder. It’s not even close. Henrik (I’m Not Henny Youngman) Lundqvist and Alex (I’m All-Inclusive) Ovechkin are neck-and-neck for the prize. If The Big O totals 50 goals, that should clinch it for the rapid Russian.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Tim Taylor, Lightning Center: "It makes us feel like we did something for the country anyways and it’s very unfortunate what these guys have gone through and they've given their lives to help preserve this country for what it is and we're grateful for that." The Lightning hope to encourage all NHL teams to reach out to their local VAs and offer helmets to those patients that need them.

Free Agent Flop & The Blackhawks

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Northwest Herald,

Thus far Khabibulin has been the NHL's most surprising free-agent flop, much bigger than Penguins defenseman Sergei Gonchar. One of the best-conditioned athletes in any sport, Khabibulin eventually will earn his money. His confidence and legacy will improve in time. The popular pastime of criticizing – or worse, ignoring – the Hawks is well-justified. The "character" veterans general manager Dale Tallon signed after 2003-04 season have proven ineffective. The lack of creative marketing that owner Bill Wirtz allows his staff to develop is beyond reason.

Flyers Relax In The Sun

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Philly Burbs,

Can a jet-ski, a Frisbee or a volleyball help make the Flyers a better team? One would get that impression, based on comments made by players after two days of sun and fun on the eastern shore of the Sunshine State. So it was good to get together, let some of the nave rookies get a sunburn and tell a few jokes on the beach, even if this break was actually pre-scheduled as part of an annual Flyers' marketing and business get-together.

Is Belfour Trying To Save Face

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Al Strachan of the Toronto Sun,

The burning question in the press box -- which, like all press boxes has more than its share of conspiracy theorists -- was this: Is Ed Belfour really hurt? The media people who have dealt with Belfour during his tenure here didn't think it was unreasonable to suggest he is not the kind of person who would take kindly to sitting at the end of the bench with a towel around his neck as a healthy scratch. Instead, he declared himself an unhealthy scratch, thereby saving face.

More Of The Same Schedule Next Year

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

Bettman said there's little chance of any significant policy changes this summer. He says the top two complaints he hears from fans, especially in Western Canada, revolves around bumping the number of shootout players from three to five and a schedule that sees Eastern clubs here every three years. "If we decide we want more inter-conference play, then we have to sacrifice the rivalries. It's a balancing act. We'll probably do it again next season and then we'll take a deep breath, have a talk with our fans and see where we go from there.

The Race For The Calder

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Globe and Mail,

The race is far from over and anything can happen. Mr. Crosby has rallied, having put up five points in his past two games. He is on pace to put up 94 points, the highest tally by an 18-year-old in NHL history. Mr. Crosby entered the season as the NHL's new darling and odds-on favourite to win the Calder Trophy. More recently, however, Mr. Ovechkin has been seen as a lock, not only because he leads in points but also because he has scored the most memorable goal of the season.

The International NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kevin Allen of USA TODAY,

The Swedish Red Wings, the Czech Rangers and the Finnish Stars aren't NHL franchises, and yet they are clearly visible in the league standings. All three teams lead their division, suggesting an advantage to the groupings.
