Fedorov Doing Anything He Can

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Columbus Dispatch,

"He’s one of those players who does a lot of the little things the whole game at a high level," Blue Jackets left wing Jody Shelley said. "But when he wants to elevate to the level of superstardom, he can do it. When the game is on the line, you want Sergei Fedorov. Whether it’s win a draw in the defensive zone or forecheck or score a goal, he’s got all those in his tool bag. He’s a good guy to have in the room, boy."

Mystery Player Wanted By Ottawa

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Ottawa Sun,

"A few guys were talking about it, and the thought is there might be a better player out there (Muckler covets)," said Mike Fisher. "It sounds like they wanted a lot for Weight, and I'm glad it didn't happen. Muckler would prefer to add a player that becomes part of the team's longer term future than a "rental," but did say he will bring in a guy just for the rest of this season if the compensation is fair.

Hartley Eating His Words Tonight

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

A little more than two weeks ago, Ilya Kovalchuk's stick was questioned by the Nashville Predators. At that time, Atlanta coach Bob Hartley said, "We all know that Kovalchuk plays with legal sticks.'' Today, he is signing a different tune- from the AP via TSN,

Kovalchuk must have felt even worse. The NHL's top goal scorer failed to hit the net for the fifth game in a row, watched Pominville score the tie-breaking goal, and he was penalized for an illegal stick with just under five minutes remaining, wiping out a potential Atlanta power play. Once Kovalchuk got out of the penalty box, he spent the rest of the game on the bench. Clearly, coach Bob Hartley was disgusted with his young star. "It's a matter of showing respect to the entire team, the organization and the fans," Hartley said. "I hope he'll learn from this."

Brace yourself, Wings fans. If that voice you hear echoing inside Ford Field on Sunday sounds familiar -- and maybe even raises your blood pressure a little -- there's a reason.
