Ranking The Candidates

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler of MSG Network,

Owner Charles Wang already has made it clear that input from the likes of Gary Bettman and other hockey sages will help determine the name of Mike Milbury’s successor. So, the question is who are the most likely - - and best - - candidates? Here are my choices:

Just Wondering

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

-The drug results from the testing of NHL players, by all accounts- commish included, were supposed to be in early this week. What happened, did the results get lost in the mail? -While many expected trades to be fast and furious this time of year, it is a smart move to wait until after the Olympics to obtain a player. Most teams want to wait until the last week or so of the trading deadline to pull the trigger. -At the start of the season, many people were dreaming of all six Canadian teams making the playoffs- who thought two teams now scrambling to finish eighth would be Toronto and Montreal? -Many hockey players are good to great golfers- Are golfers good to great hockey players?

Hurricanes Are Just Starting

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

The Hurricanes' resurgence is extraordinary, not only because it was so unexpected, but because they can only get better. In 2002, when they made a trip to the 2002 Stanley Cup finals, their best player was Francis, aged 40. Now, their best player is Eric Staal, aged 21. They also have their goaltender of the future, Cam Ward, in place (he's 21 as well) and a mainstay on defenceman coming in Jack Johnson, perhaps as early as next season.

Leafs Looking At Next Year

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Damien Cox of ESPN,

In the eons since the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs last met in the Stanley Cup finals, there has been a curious relationship to their fortunes. Now, with the postlockout environment dictating some very different challenges for NHL squads on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border, it's intriguing that both Original Six clubs find themselves simultaneously gasping for air in the Eastern Conference standings.

Grandpa Johnson

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Las Vegas Sun,

John Johnson and his companion, longtime Clark County elementary school principal Kathryn Augsburger, saw the Wolverines play at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks in October, and they plan to see them at the University of Nebraska-Omaha next month. For someone who watched both of his sons, Jack Sr. and Jimmy, play at Michigan State, John Johnson said seeing Junior extend the Johnson line has been more thrilling. "We've had a helluva lot of fun with it," Johnson said. "I thought it was exciting when my two sons were playing college hockey, but this is even more exciting, when I know the kid is being watched so closely by scouts. "Pro hockey players, they live a fast life. Those kids, they're not encouraged to lay off the women or beer. So his dad thought another year, at Michigan, would be good for him."

Blues Future

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

Your cyber-correspondent worked the room Thursday night at Savvis Center, talking to NHL executives, broadcasters and other media types, former players and a player agent about the state of the Blues. Veterans Doug Weight and Keith Tkachuk love St. Louis and would love to stay with the franchise -– IF it gains a credible owner and IF the Next Regime had a convincing plan to build a winner here. Both realize that contenders will come calling on the Blues before the trade deadline.

Top Execs

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jeff Gordon of Fox Sports,

Which executives get the most from their resources every year? Most of our finalists have won world championships, but not all. Some have won in more than one place, but not all.
Two hockey GMs make the Top list and the Worst list is filled with hockey execs.

Update On Pat Burns

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Star-Ledger,

If Pat Burns had been physically able, he would have jumped at the chance to return as Devils coach when Larry Robinson stepped down more than five weeks ago. But Burns, who just finished another round of chemotherapy last week in his fight with liver cancer, said it was never a possibility. "I wasn't ready physically. If I were ready, I would've jumped in. I've missed it," Burns said last night at the St. Pete Times Forum, where he watched the Devils face the Lightning.
