Time Running Out For Pittsburgh

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via the Times Leader,

With the Penguins now only 15 months away from the end to their Mellon Arena lease, Daly said there must be swift action in resolving the arena issue. "The time window for the Penguins to get financing on a new arena is short. I believe the city of Pittsburgh deserves to have the Penguins, but the Penguins also need a new building and they've needed a new one for years," Daly said.

Looking Ahead For Team USA

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via ESPN,

Don't tell U.S. hockey players that the soft part of the schedule is over. Their Olympic experience, so far, has been anything but easy. After two games against teams considered to be the least formidable in Group B, the Americans sit in second place with three points (1-0-1). "There are so many great teams here that if you take a period off or a half a period off, you're going to lose the game," St. Louis Blues forward Keith Tkachuk said Friday.

Nashville Needs To Explain

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Tennessean,

But when the Predators reassigned Scottie Upshall and Shea Weber to Milwaukee for the Olympic break, and then had defenseman Jamie Allison claimed off waivers by Florida, it left Nashville with just 19 players on its NHL roster — one short of the league minimum. As a result, the Predators had to recall one player from Milwaukee. The team chose Stevenson, who once again had to clear waivers on the way back to the NHL level. Dallas interrupted those plans by claiming the 6-foot-1, 215-pound forward, who'd posted seven points and 74 penalty minutes in 35 games with the Predators this season. Because Stevenson was claimed off waivers on his way back up to the NHL level, the Predators will have to pay half of what remained of Stevenson's $450,000 salary this season.

from Phil Coffey of NHL.com,

Assessment was the order of the day for the 12 teams taking part in the 2006 Winter Olympic men's hockey tournament Friday. With no games scheduled, teams used the time off for practices and meeting, preparing for the final three games of the preliminary round, which will tell the tale for many when it comes to making the jump to the medal round.

Other Sports Resemble Hockey

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Hockey News,

For NHL players, being in Turin isn't all about the game they're there to play. It's also about learning from the other sports around you, the weirdly unique abominations they feel compelled to reward medals for every four years. But these other events are more similar to hockey than one might think. Some skills are apparently universal to all sports. Watch and you might learn a thing or two.

Looking Past 2010

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via Fox Sports,

NHL vice president Bill Daly said Friday that the length of the break needed to accommodate the Olympics will also be a factor. The NHL agreed to shut down for these Olympics and Vancouver as part of the labor agreement reached with the players union last summer. "There are a number of factors - how long of a break, and whether that break is beneficial to the season we're trying to have in North America," Daly said. "Injuries are also an issue and a concern of our clubs and our players."

After a sumptuous media brunch organized at the IIHF House of Hockey adjacent to the Palasport Olympico, IIHF President René Fasel, NHL Executive Vice President and Chief Legal Officer Bill Daly, and NHLPA Executive Director Ted Saskin sat down in front of a packed press conference to answer questions about the world of hockey.

Lack Of Black Atheletes Hurting Winter Olympics

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Sporting News,

In case you missed it, which apparently a lot of people did, (Bryant) Gumbel delivered a commentary on the Winter Olympics. "Count me among those who don't care about them and won't watch them. So try not to laugh when someone says these are the world's greatest athletes, despite a paucity of blacks that makes the Winter Games look like a GOP convention," said Gumbel.
