Unhappy Domi Benched

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the AP via TSN,

"Am I happy with it? No. Do I agree with it? No," the 36-year-old Domi said. "I know what I bring to the team, to the dressing room, and my teammates know." "The most puzzling thing is I've probably played my best hockey in the last three games," he said. "I just figured I'd make a little change," Maple Leafs coach Pat Quinn said. "It was just a coach's decision before the game. I didn't expect him to like it."

Avs Blew It

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Terry Frei of ESPN,

For the record, though apothecary standards are stricter in Colorado than in Canada, Propecia is readily and legally obtainable at the corner drive-through drugstore. With that out of the way, one of the strangest things about Wednesday's bombshell of a deal is that when Jose Theodore had that little accident outside his home, suffered a fractured heel and rendered himself hors de combat for at least the foreseeable future, it actually helped facilitate his trade to the Avalanche.

Lidstrom Contract Update

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Nick was just on WDFN in Detroit and said Wings are now talking extension with him. It was his request to wait until after the Olympics to talk contract. Lidstrom says he feels a young 36, wants to stay in Detroit and sees no reason why things won't work out. Look for at least a 2 year extension before the playoffs unless this totally blows up, which I highly doubt it would. update 5:10pm, You can listen to the interview courtesy of Mlive. You will need real player and look for the story with the headline "High-praise from a great player".

The Maven Breaks Down The Trades

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler of MSG Network,

WORST DEAL Well-ensconced in a playoff berth, the Oilers were conned by their media into thinking they needed a first-rate goalie to replace Ty Conklin & Co. Okay, fine, but get a first-rate goalie, not Dwayne Roloson. A second-stringer in Minnesota, Roloson is no better – and likely worse! – than Conklin.

Nothing Much Changed

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Michael Farber of Sports Illustrated,

There was nothing on Thursday that would tip the balance of power or divert the route of the Stanley Cup. It will still go through places like Ottawa and Carolina in the East, Detroit and maybe stand-pat Dallas in the West. The drama was in the sheer numbers, not the names. But for a day, anyway, Rutherford and his colleagues kept all of Canada warm

Trade Day Hangover

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Is anyone else experiencing a slight headache when looking at your monitor? Today, at least for me, the hockey world is moving at 1/2 speed. After viewing who knows how many pages on the web yesterday, I am kicking back a little today. Some interesting KK stats from yesterday- Normally a visit by a reader lasts on the average a little over two minutes; yesterday it was 22 minutes. I hope your fingers are not sore from clicking refresh so many times!!! The first time visitors to KK yesterday were over 800, one question, where have you been? Normal page views per person per visit is around 3.2- yesterday 1.1 which tells me people were staying focused on just one topic- who was traded. I also received over 200 visits from IPs in Poland; were they all interested in where Brandon Bochenski would land? I also want to thank everyone for stopping by Kukla's Korner, especially those who do so on a daily basis. Now it gets fun with the playoff push and soon playoff talk- the best is yet to come.
