Talking The Game

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

-The National Hockey League, which has a two-year rights agreement with OLN, is a loser. Without NFL games, OLN's growth will continue at a slow pace. The dream is over for NHL commissioner Gary Bettman; NHL telecasts won't be making rapid inroads on cable.- William Houston of the Globe and Mail -They didn't win it," said Jagr, after losing last night to Philadelphia. "We lost it." -Gary Bettman insists that his obstruction-crackdown crusade won’t falter in the homestretch. “Stephen Walkom, our chief of officiating, has guaranteed it,” The Commish asserts. “What makes this time different is 1) We have better competitive balance of the new economic system; 2) As part of our partnership, we’ve had a complete buy-in and some contributions by the players and; 3) Everybody is overwhelmingly pleased with the results. That’s a form of positive reinforcement.”- from Stan Fischler of MSG Network

A Different Outlook

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the London Free Press,

Van Massenhoven is back, as solid as ever, and wiser. Does he approach the game any differently? No. Does he handle himself differently? Yes. "You're supposed to watch the play, not the puck, but I'm more aware of the puck now," he said.

Blasting Lamoriello

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Reuters,

New Jersey Devils forward Sergei Brylin has criticized club president and general manager Lou Lamoriello for making decisions that have shocked his team mates. "I don't think it's normal that such a great player like Malahov is forced to quit hockey," Brylin was quoted as saying by Russian daily Sport-Express. "The Mogilny case made even less sense. I have no doubt that Mogilny could still play at the highest level but (Lamoriello) made a strong-willed decision to send him to the American Hockey League, the level of which is not comparable to the player's ability," Brylin said.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

The Terry Sawchuck Edition of the NHL Carnival is a must read by any hockey fan. Bill at Abel to Yzerman did a fantastic job putting it together.

The Demise Of The Blues

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

The Blues’ lame-duck management dumped their (Sillinger & Weight) salaries and got table scraps in return. There is no earthly reason to pay NHL prices to watch AHL hockey –- which is what the Blues offer now that their top goal scorer and top point-getter are gone. The Lauries are still trying to sell this franchise. In the meantime, they and their minions are working as hard as humanly possible to destroy the team’s remaining fan base.
