Just Dumb

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Columbus Dispatch, Columbus goaltender Marc Denis after a bad 3rd period in a loss to Tampa Bay.

"I think we just gave that game away," Denis said. "I don’t remember us playing a dumber third period than we played in the third." "You can’t sell the farm and open it up against one of the best offensive teams in the league. That’s what we did, and it was very dumb." "If we go back and forth with (Tampa Bay), we don’t have a chance," he said. "I don’t know what happened." I don’t know how a switch in our brain went off at that point. This was just the wrong way to play this game."

Mogilny Will Help The Kids

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the National Post,

The rookie stared, wide-eyed through the gap in the curtain, as though visible beyond it was some kind of supernatural apparition. In reality, it was an unassuming, greying 37-year-old wearing a black wool greatcoat over his sweater and slacks. "I can't believe he's here," said first-year pro Mark Mancari, a right-winger with the American Hockey League's Rochester Americans.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Denver Post,

Forsberg is Philadelphia's favorite son at the moment, and he has taken a shine to one of America's most historic cities. Denver hockey fans still may be grieving the loss of the player many regard as the best in the world, but Forsberg has moved on. "I like the city," said Forsberg, who is scheduled to play his first career game against the Avalanche on Saturday for the Philadelphia Flyers at the Wachovia Center. "I mean, I think I got to a great situation. I came to a good team with a lot of good players. I've been lucky."

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the NY Daily News, If the Islanders are looking for someone with ties to their glory days and experience winning the Stanley Cup as a general manager elsewhere as outgoing GM Mike Milbury's replacement, then Neil Smith certainly is enthusiastic about talking to them if the feeling is mutual. "Saying I'm interested in this one would be hard for me to duck," Smith said yesterday by telephone. "It would be a great opportunity, clearly." read on

Czeching In

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Edmonton Sun,

The collapse was going to be spectacular. The New York Rangers, a laughingstock when they had $65 million to spend, had to suddenly get by on half that. The pinned their hopes on flighty and temperamental Jaromir Jagr, whose two-and-a-half year stretch in Washington turned the Capitals into a hapless bottom feeder. They loaded up on Europeans and still had Glen Sather, 14 years removed from his last winning season, as the primary architect. We had the New York headlines all ready to go: Start Spreading The News, They're Heavin' Today.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

The Panthers have made a substantial offer to keep Roberto Luongo, but the star goaltender says that money alone is not enough.
