Win With Experience

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Martin Brodeur and Sun Media via Slam,

I think that it’s important to explain that in order to succeed in a tournament of this scale, it’s necessary to form the best possible team. You can’t limit yourself to the players who happen to have the best statistics at the time of the selection. Naturally there are several young Canadian players who have been standouts at this point in the NHL season. But if we want to win the gold medal, it’s smart to go with experience, the players who have been there.

Mario Will Go Thru Off-Ice Conditioning Program

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Pittsburgh Penguins,

Mario Lemieux’s comeback is on ice, or rather off it – for now. “He’s going to be on an off-ice conditioning program for the next 10 days to two weeks and then he will be re-evaluated after that,” Penguins General Manager Craig Patrick said. “They are going to try to get the right level of medication that he needs. Medicine is not an exact science, so you have to test things and try them. They are in that process now. “We’ll get the right level of medication and right level of conditioning and he’ll be re-evaluated as to when he gets back on the ice.”

Team Apoligizes To Nolan

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TSN,

The Chicoutimi Saguenéens has apologized for the behaviour of its fans at a game against the Moncton Wildcats on December 16, saying the events were "reprehensible." Moncton coach Ted Nolan, an Ojibwa, was the target of repeated racial slurs during the game, and fans continued to harass the Wildcats as they made their way to the team bus when it was over. "The Saguenéens organization will send its sincere apologies to Mr. Ted Nolan and to the Wildcats for the events of last Friday," said Cardinal.

Glavine Made Right Decision

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from USA Hocley,

Tom Glavine certainly had a tough decision to make back in 1984. An outstanding high school athlete, Glavine had played both baseball and hockey. The Concord, Mass., native was a four-time league All-Star and All-Conference honoree in baseball and was named to All-Star and All-Conference teams three times in hockey. June 1984 turned out to be a month of decision for Glavine. Within days, the talented athlete was first drafted by the Atlanta Braves and the Los Angeles Kings. There were even a number of colleges trying to recruit the youngster. History indicates that Glavine made the right decision by choosing the Braves.

Devil Malakhov Retires

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from MSG Network,

In other developments that affect the Devils' salary cap-afflicted roster, star LW Patrik Elias enjoyed a full practice with the team as his road to recovery from a severe case of hepatitis draws near an end. Robinson also said that defenseman Vladimir Malakhov, who was not at practice, has retired. The Russian blueliner was signed as a free agent last summer to help fill the void left by the departed Scott Stevens and Scott Niedermayer.

NHL Bizarro World

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from The Hockey News,

Ladies and germs, welcome to the new NHL, where up is down and down is sideways and Bob Goodenow is doing cartwheels that he got the heck out of Dodge when he did. Just when you thought labor peace had finally arrived, the NHL and NHL Players' Association could be headed for their first significant disagreement over the new CBA…but it's not the kind of fight Goodenow used to relish. Better pull up a chair 'cause this one's a beauty. The union is considering pushing for a lower-than-expected salary cap next season. And if it does, the NHL will probably tell 'em to take a hike.

Team president and general manager Lou Lamoriello led the team at practice Monday morning, Newark Star-Ledger reported. The Devils are currently 14-13-5, good for 33 points. If the playoffs started Monday, they would be on the outside looking in.
update 11:53am, from the AP and CP via the Globe and Mail,
Larry Robinson resigned as coach of the New Jersey Devils on Monday because of stress and "horrible headaches," two days after his team lost for the seventh time in nine game. "A lot of things were getting to me. I want this team to be successful, but if I can't be at my best and it's bothering me healthwise, I can't do that," he said. Robinson was told the symptoms were stress-related. "This was one time I went for tests and hoped they'd find something," he said.
update 1:43pm, from the AP via Sportsnet,
Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello said he will take over for Robinson on a temporary basis. New Jersey's next game is Tuesday, against the New York Rangers.
