Red Wing Jersey Issue

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Boy, little did I know this would cause an uproar. Wednesday night I talked with a buddy of mine who happens to work in Detroit radio, and I told him about the NHL and the Wings thinking about changing the design and color scheme of their jersey. See Bob McKenzie's article from very early this morning, a few posts down. Also see an article from ESPN at Lets Go Wings from yesterday. Well, my buddy mentioned it on the air yesterday morning and now Art Regner is talking about it on the air. Wing fans are not happy with this at all, going to a black jersey would be ok as an alternate, but please, no changes to the current jersey. More on this later, back to partying.

‘Tough’ Guys

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Tampa Tribune,

When there are points to be earned in a playoff push, players will do anything to get on the ice. "I've seen guys play with separated shoulders and dislocated shoulders," DiMaio said. "It's the nature of professional sports, I think. Especially in hockey. I don't know if the tolerance is higher. I think a lot of it is guys don't like to give their spots up to anyone else. There's a lot of pride. I think that's what makes the hockey guys pretty special."

Brendan Witt's wish to be traded remains and George McPhee is adamant a deal will be done before the March 9 NHL trade deadline. "It will happen this year, I just don't know when," McPhee, the Capitals' general manager, said after practice here yesterday. "He has asked for a trade and he will be traded. I am not going to comment any further. (We just want) what is best for the team and the organization."

Avs Suffer More Than A Loss

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Rocky Mountain News,

This defeat will go down as one of the most difficult the Colorado Avalanche will endure this season. Defenseman Ossi Vaananen, on his second shift, suffered a broken right ankle that will require surgery and probably end his season and right wing Milan Hejduk sustained a neck injury on his fifth shift and didn't return. "Those are two big guys on our team," said captain Joe Sakic, whose goal with 8:49 to play in the third period put the Avalanche ahead 3-2. "It's a tough loss, but I think everybody pulled together and played pretty well."

Steven’s Jersey Goes To The Rafters

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

What do Slava Kozlov, Eric Lindros, and Paul Kariya have in common? from Sherry Ross of the NY Daily News,

Each of the trio was the target of jarring playoff hits by Stevens, producing the fear that made East Rutherford famous. "The opponent was always so petrified of him," said goaltender Martin Brodeur, who until this season had played his entire career with the captain, No.4, as a teammate. Name the Cup year, and you can identify the Stevens open-ice hit that defined it.
continued update 10:54am, from Phil Coffey of NHL.com,
"I still remember our first day in New Jersey," Stevens said. "Lou met us at the airport and he had two baby seats in the back of the car. That certainly says everything about Lou and what he has done for me and the New Jersey Devils. "It's definitely a family here, that's Lou's philosophy. That's why we stayed here and made our home here. There have been a lot of players here who moved on, you know, the grass is always greener, but the feedback later on is they did it right here. It's a team game here, not a bunch of individual players like in other places."
