Two Irish Boys

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via Canada.com,

Instead of hurling rocks, bottles and insults at each other, Paul, a Catholic, and Andrew, who's Protestant, pass a puck on the same hockey team in Belfast. The two 17-year-olds credit their love of Canada's game for bridging the religious divide that has rocked Northern Ireland for so long that people can't imagine life any differently.

Down The Stretch

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

One month for GMs to prove they made the right moves, added the right pieces or resisted the wrong temptations. One month for coaches to coax an extra point or two out of weary lineups, to get just a little more out of underachievers or push elite players to another level. One month for veterans to shake off nagging injuries and hit their playoff strides. One month for young players to prove they belong, prove they are legitimate NHLers.

The ‘New’ NHL Team

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from USA TODAY,

Maybe more than just about any other team, the Sabres are a product of the "new" NHL. "We took the league seriously on what they were trying to do," Regier said about the post-lockout rule changes aimed at opening up the game. "We knew we had good team speed." And with a little more than a month before the postseason starts, every other team knows, too.

Joking With Jokinen

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

A tongue-in-cheek interview with Jussi Jokinen by Charlie Teljeur (Loose Change) of the Hockey News,

LC: What are your feelings on the death penalty? JJ: I guess it’s warranted if they really feel the need to crack down on obstruction. LC: Why did you choose the No. 36? JJ: My favorite player growing up was Jari Kurri. LC: But he wore No. 17? JJ: And he played for the Oilers so wearing one of those jerseys would look really stupid wouldn’t it?

Three Points For A Regulation Win

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Al Strachan of the Toronto Sun,

If a team is not one of the league's powerhouses but manages to hold off the league leader for 60 minutes, its fans expect to see some sort of reward. In sports, you're selling hope, and if the hope of a single point is there, you've got more to sell. The answer is not to eliminate the point for a regulation-time tie. It is to award three points for a regulation-time victory. The concept has been studied by the league and was ever so close to becoming a reality last summer. But at the last minute, the governors shot it down. It's quite likely that this summer, they may have a change of heart. Because the NHL is run for the good of the weakest teams, the concept of keeping a point for a regulation tie is not going away. But for the sake of consistency, the same number of points should be available in every game.

from the Chicago Tribune,

The NHL hasn't done much recently to celebrate the history and accomplishments of the "Original Six." That may change.
