Forget About Oxygen- How About Groin Injuries

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from US Newswire,

Cancellation of the 2004- 2005 National Hockey League (NHL) season may have cost dearly in terms of labor relations, fan support and dollars, but players came through it in fine physical shape. Study results presented today at the 53rd Annual Meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) showed athletes' physical condition showed no ill effects from the 310-day lockout. Researcher John Wygand led a study of 18 NHL players, conducting pre-season assessments of maximal oxygen consumption, heart rate and body composition in 2003 and again in 2005

McKee Out

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via TSN,

And another bad turn has emerged against the Sabres. Buffalo's already depleted blueline has taken another hit as defenceman Jay McKee will not be in the lineup. According to head coach Lindy Ruff, he has "a freak infection with his leg" from a cut he suffered earlier in the playoffs. It leaves the Sabres without four of their regular defencemen for Game 7.

Enough Already

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

The producers of the highly trafficked video Podcast, Adobe Photoshop TV report today that their weekly presentation has been downloaded over two million times in the month of May 2006, drawing more individual viewers than a typical NHL playoff game broadcast.
Time for the NHL to start attacking this kind of journalism and can Pamela, who wrote this release, explain to me what a typical NHL playoff game broadcast is?

Focus On The Goalies

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the News & Observer,

Every hockey player on the ice tonight must excel in the do-or-die battle between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Buffalo Sabres. But the goalies, clutch players throughout this seven-game series, must outperform them all. That's as true for rookie Cam Ward, the likely Carolina starter, as it is for Ryan Miller, Buffalo's fresh-faced standout. And these masked men are not standard homo sapiens. If you think you could never in your wildest dreams do the things you see them doing with grace and ease ... you're right. "It would be hard to make a mediocre athlete into a great goalie. I wouldn't want to be the coach who had to try," said Marion Alexander, a professor at the University of Manitoba who researches human movement in sports.

Sticking With Hockey Players

via the Edmonton Sun,

Picking up supermodel Rachel Hunter (Rod Stewart's ex-wife) at the International Airport on Tuesday, according to credible eyewitnesses, was Oiler Jarret Stoll. She'd be older than 23-year-old Jarret, given she graced the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition cover in 1989.

Leafs Take A Chance

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Toronto Sun,

Somewhere, Ed Jovanovski must be smiling. Somewhere, Zdeno Chara and Wade Redden and Nicklas Lidstrom and maybe Rob Blake -- all of them on their way to free agency -- are raising a toast in honour of the crazy contract that Bryan McCabe is about to sign with the Maple Leafs. Somewhere, they're saying, or their agents are saying, that if McCabe can get almost $6 million US a year, imagine what the best available defenceman in hockey will be worth as July 1 grows ever closer. Because Bryan McCabe isn't one of the best defenceman in hockey.

Hockey Losing Ground

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Hour.ca,

Despite the Edmonton Oilers making it to the Stanley Cup finals, Canada's national sport is taking a swift kick in the butt, and not just because World Cup soccer begins on June 9. "One day hockey may no longer be Canada's national sport," says expert demographer Jack Jedwab, executive director of the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS). "My polls show there is no common sport any more that unites Canadians in all regions.

Still Not Right

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Boston Herald,

A year ago, the end of the NHL lockout was approaching and details of the league’s new economic system were trickling into public view. Analysts came to the same conclusion about the free agency period: Career reputations would be made, or destroyed, based on moves made. For those atop the Bruins’ power structure, primarily Jeremy Jacobs and Mike O’Connell, it was the latter. So for B’s fans, it’s hardly reassuring that Peter Chiarelli, officially introduced yesterday as the club’s new general manager, won’t go to work until two weeks after the opening of free agency, on or just afterJuly1.

Where Is McKee

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via WGR 550,

Paul Hamilton arrived in Raleigh Wednesday night and immediately went to work on the hot rumor about Sabres defenseman Jay McKee. Our Sabres beat reporter found out that he was not with the team Wednesday night in Carolina. Sabres team spokesman Mike Gilbert said he is "sick, but it is possible that he can come join the team for game 7."
Thanks to a KK reader for passing this on... update 9:51am, via TSN,

McKee's agent Pat Morris adds that he will try make the trip to join the team in Carolina today, but his game status it still unclear.
