Now Is The Time

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,

On this day, each and every active NHLer who has ever let you down in the past has an opportunity to redeem himself. Today, nagging and/or recurring injuries have yet to nag or recur.

Now is the time you can leave aside your naked contempt for certain league bigwigs; the time to plot out the ideal revenge on behalf of your favorite team or player who was done wrong last year; the time you’re not unconsciously grinding down your teeth because there’s less than a week to go before the regular season fantasy hockey pool is over and you’re three points out of second place and you’ve got Martin Havlat on your team and him and his paper-mache shoulder are uncharacteristically rushing into corners like Dale Tallon dropped a contract extension there.

Russia An Option For Berard

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kevin Allen of Mucking and Grinding,

Unable to find a job in the NHL, former No. 1 NHL draft pick Bryan Berard is probably headed to Russia to play in the Continental Hockey League (KHL).

Berard is still waiting for some NHL teams to finalize their plans, but his agent, Tom Laidlaw, confirmed KHL teams are expressing interest in the puck-moving defenseman.

The Tampa Bay Lightning, needing a veteran defenseman, considered Berard, but then decided to stay with their current group.

Just Strange

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Buffalo News,

Former Buffalo Sabres goalie Clint Malarchuk accidentally shot himself in the chin Tuesday with a .22-caliber rifle at his Fish Springs residence, according to the Record-Courier of Nevada.

Malarchuk, 47, was taken to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno by helicopter. Douglas County sheriff’s deputies were investigating the incident Wednesday to determine if the shooting was accidental, the paper said….

Malarchuk is the goaltending coach for the National Hockey League Columbus Blue Jackets, and lives with his family in Fish Springs, Nev.

Helping Bettman

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Al Strachan at Fox Sports,

So there are now limits to what he can do to improve the game. That’s assuming, of course, that he knows what needs to be done, and that in itself is a dubious proposition. So in order to help out the commissioner and point him in the right direction, here are five things that need to be fixed in his league.

1. Get a better TV deal….

2. Get rid of the weasels….

Why Edmonton Should Miss Playoffs

Blog: The Puck Stops Here By PuckStopsHere

When I gave my 2008/09 predictions, one of the most criticized picks I made is that the Edmonton Oilers should finish last in the Northwest Division and 11th in the West Conference.  The argument against this is simple.  Last season,  Edmonton finished 4th in the Northwest Division and 9th in the West Conference.  They finished strong with a 14-6 record in their last 20 games (one game was a shootout loss and counts as a regulation tie).  During the off season, they added Lubomir Visnovsky and Erik Cole, giving up Joni Pitkanen.  They have many talented young players such as San Gagner and Andrew Cogliano, who should continue to improve.  How can anyone say they will be worse this season?  The answer is that last season’s result was misleading.  I argue that they will be a better team and not be as lucky in their point total.
