KK Dark Tonight

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

I am attending the North American International Auto Show Charity Preview tonight so new entries to KK will be put on hold for most of the evening. If anything major breaks in the hockey world, I will attempt to post but can't guarantee it. It is a little awkward trying to post from a pocket pc. So off I go to mingle with 16,000 other auto buffs!

Weight Denies Asking For Trade

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via TSN,

If Doug Weight had a dollar for every time his name was mentioned in a trade rumour this season he'd probably have doubled his $5.7-million US salary. Truth is, Weight said Friday, Blues GM Larry Pleau has not approached him yet about a trade or about possibly waiving his no-trade clause. "At no time have I received any inclination or prodding from the organization to think about my no-trade clause or think about these rumours that are out there right now," Weight said from Atlanta, where his team faced the Thrashers on Friday night.

Gretzky & Crosby Q & A

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from USA WEEKEND,

What are fans screaming at you from behind the glass? Gretzky: "Hey, Gretzky, get your skates on!" [Laughs.] I have yet to feel the urge. Crosby: I honestly don't hear too much of what gets said, but I can tell you that the fans in New Jersey get pretty vocal. [Laughs.]

Not As Bad As A Corked Bat

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Oxford Press,

Atlanta Thrashers star Ilya Kovalchuk, who has been caught using a stick with too great a curve three times, was accused of the infraction Wednesday in a game against Nashville. "In terms of competitive advantage, I don't believe the curvature of the stick can be equated to a corking of a baseball bat," NHL director of officials Steve Walkom said. "There are certain limits that have been decided upon. ... I've been in the game a long time and if someone thinks an opponent is breaking the rule, then you can get a penalty. That in itself is a pretty big penalty in the game."

Maybe You Didn’t Know

-Australia’s Minister for Human Services is Joe Hockey. -Stan Fischler was once the Vice President of the Rangers Fan Club. -Ralph Waldo Emerson was the organist to open the Chicago Stadium and introduce the gigantic organ to the world. -The ice on a rink is around 3/4 of an inch thick. It takes 8-10 layers of ice to get to that figure and about 10,200 gallons of water. note: I had to re-post this entry from earlier today, a coding issue prevented the comment tracker from working properly.

Gainey On Theodore

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

When asked if he is looking to trade Theodore, who for the second straight game sat Wednesday night while Cristobal Huet got the start, Gainey said, "Well, we're looking to get Jose in the net. We signed him in the summer because we felt that to be a competitive team, we needed above-average goaltending, and that's what we believe he provides us. … We're hardly halfway through the book. I think there's still a lot to be written, and on our team, a lot of it will and can be written by him."
- from Terry Frei of ESPN, in an article about Habs owner George Gillett Jr.

Larry Brown Heaps Praise On Hockey

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Toronto Sun,

"I was involved in a championship and obviously that was an incredible, special feeling for me. But I just remember reading and hearing what hockey players think about the Stanley Cup, the fact that they can take it home, show their friends and what it obviously has meant. I'm not so sure all our guys until later on in their career, they realize what it means to be part of a championship team." "The thing that always makes me partial to guys like (Messier), all hockey players, is all they ever talk about is team," Brown told the Bergen Record. "They give credit to teammates, they room together, they eat together, they always talk about what great teammates they have and he's always been somebody everybody mentions as being such a special leader. That's something that's pretty incredible."
