Is The Cap Working

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Delco Times,

While history proves to us that the framers of our constitution got it right, the jury is still out on whether this salary cap will make the NHL have more parity than the pre-cap era. The primary reason? Only one of those former "Big Seven" has taken a serious fall this season, while five of them are still considered among the league’s elite.

Delay Of Game Up for Discussion

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Globe and Mail,

When the National Hockey League's 30 general managers gather near Las Vegas this week, one of the new rules they will discuss -- and possibly alter -- is the delay-of-game infraction when a player flips the puck over the glass.

No Doubting Jagr Now

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post, "I know one of the reasons we were picked to finish in last place is because of the large number of Europeans we have on the team, and I think that a lot of that was because I'm on this team," Jagr told The Post after Saturday's 4-3 OT victory in Philadelphia. "I think people were saying that I didn't care about the game anymore, that I didn't care about working hard and winning. But that was not true. People didn't understand some of the things that had happened with me, but I didn't doubt myself." more (reg. req.),

Refs Sent To The Minors

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Hockey Refs,

The four NHL referees assigned to the Winter Olympics are preparing for their duties by officiating select AHL games this week. Dan Marouelli, Dennis LaRue, Don Van Massenhoven, and Paul Devorski are being sent down to the minors for one game each because, unlike the NHL, the Olympics feature a three-official system with one referee and two linesmen.

Enter Atlanta Thrashers' general manager Don Waddell, whose team is in the midst of an intense playoff hunt in the Eastern Conference. “We'll be in the playoffs," Waddell told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Saturday night. “If you want to write 'guarantee,' I have no problem with that.”

Sharks Sinking

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Inside Bay Area,

The Sharks may suddenly be dead-bang dead. While they still have three more home dates plus a road jaunt to Phoenix to close the pre-Olympics schedule, their best opportunity to climb back into the mix may be slipping away. While they will play 26 regular-season games once the NHL season resumes on Feb. 28, the schedule is not nearly as favorable. When things finally do start up again, their first opponent will be the Detroit Red Wings. Then they head out on a three-game roadie. Ouch. Hence, the time to make a move is now. Instead, though, they're backpedaling. With this latest setback, the Sharks now trail eighth-place Colorado by eight points.

Gretzky Adored In Canada

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Arizona Republic,

This is how it is when Gretzky returns to Canada. A baggage handler tells a cousin, the cousin tells a friend and suddenly grown men are driving to remote locations in pursuit of his signature. His arrival always inspires recollection and genuflection, a papal-like excitement induced by a brilliant 20-year NHL career. Back at the Toronto hotel, after signing autographs, Gretzky climbs aboard the team bus en route to a morning practice before the evening's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. He smiles at TV analyst Darren Pang, a former NHL goalie whose signature also was pursued. The diminutive Pang dismisses the attention, suggesting, as always, "that they think I'm Scott Hamilton."

Divealanche Material

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the anti Terry Frei, Woody Page, etc.- otherwise known as RWBill,

Referee Don Pollock expanded, “The Holding call on Lidstrom in the third is textbook. You got a rookie out there, Svatos, he comes across the blue line focused on the net. He glances to his left, hell, he’s shoulder to shoulder with Nick Lidstrom…that smooth face and square jaw, of course his knees are gonna buckle. ‘Whoosh’, down he goes. That’s a call we gotta make.”
