We Want Our Pre & Post Game Coverage

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Many of us have asked this same question, and I am sure Phil will follow up. from the Ice Age mailbag compiled by Phil Coffey of NHL.com,

Quick question, with all the references to the Center Ice TV package in past columns, why don't they show the pre- and post-game shows? Hi Jenn. Center Ice picks up the individual team feeds and in many cases I don't believe there are pre-and-post game shows. I will look into it further.

Q & A with Luongo

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from ESPN,

In this edition of Facing Off, soon-to-be free agent Roberto Luongo tells us what could keep him in the Sunshine State, why he got special attention at the Olympic Games and who gets his vote for the NHL's rookie of the year. Q: At the trade deadline, Jokinen signed a contract extension to stay in Florida. For you, as a free agent this summer, how could that move impact your future with the Panthers? A: Well, I think it's a big step for the organization. To lock a player of his caliber in for four years is a big commitment, so if the team has success, it will be a big part of my decision. I will consider [it] this summer, but obviously, I would like to stay with the Florida Panthers for a long time.

More Goals Than Points

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Interesting stat that was flashed on the screen last night during the Caps/Bolts game. More goals by one player on a team than any teammate's point total- -Brett Hull in St. Louis had 70 goals, Brendan Shanahan had 69 points -Paul Kariya had 50 goals for the Mighty Ducks, Steve Rucchin had 44 points - Luc Robitaille scored 39 for LA Kings, Donald Audette had 36 points -The Russian Rocket Pavel Bure had 59 goals in Florida, Viktor Kozlov had 37 points. Pretty amazing stat and I think Ovechkin may fall into this category this year. But I had the sound down during the game so I am not so sure. Plus all of these stats were from 1990 forward, so another player may have done this before that time period.

Phrases You Won’t Hear At The Rink

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Chalie Teljeur of the Hockey News,

The real world and the hockey world really aren't that different. Whereas you'll never hear that gravity wasn't working that day, you'll also never hear that Nik Antropov was. Or to hear a zebra has no backbone, but Todd Bertuzzi does. Some things will just never, ever be said, in the world or at the rink. Herein, 25 phrases you'll never hear uttered in the world of hockey: 10. “It's compliments of Mr. Jacobs.” 18. “It's a third straight Lady Byng for Kasparaitis.”

Top 25 NHL Video Game Performers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from IGN,

It's nearly impossible to find a videogame hockey fan who doesn't look back fondly at the days of EA Sports' early offerings on the Genesis. ...As the games have developed, with new brands emerging as dominant, so too have the players. These days, it's Iginla and St. Louis bullying the pixilated realm. With over 20 years of hockey videogames in the can, we felt it was time to elect the best cyber athletes ever to grace a dorm room or den.

The Russian federation, FHR, is searching for a new president after Alexander Steblin resigned unexpectedly Friday. Steblin, 57, submitted his resignation at a federation meeting, the state-owned Novosti news agency reported. “We need new people, new ideas,” he said. “I am not ashamed of my work.”

Ducks Recovering Nicely

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Terry Frei of ESPN,

Out here in the shadows of the ersatz Matterhorn, and with the delight of screaming kids on spring break within earshot of late, the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim quietly have pulled off one of the season's biggest recoveries. And to think that because of alleged fan preferences in the wake of the sale of the franchise, the team is on the verge of shedding the adjective in the offseason and becoming, simply, the Anaheim Ducks.

Center Ice Update

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

I contacted Comcast today and asked about year-end pricing for Center Ice. Right now it is $109 but was told it will be available for $49 if you order after April 5th. It will be good through May 17th, which takes you through the 2nd round of the playoffs. So if you want to watch the non-local playoff games that are not nationally televised, Center Ice may be an option for you if you do not have it now. I do not know if this offer is just a Comcast deal or not, but I would think this offer would be available to other carriers as well.

Thanking Bill & Nancy Laurie

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

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

Today we must give thanks to Bill and Nancy Laurie. Thanks for selling the team to a potentially great owner, David Checketts. Thanks for buying the franchise in the first place, after local businessmen soured on the NHL. Thanks for spending tens of millions of your own dollars while trying to win a Stanley Cup.
