First NHL Coach To Go

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

More and more talk around the NHL about which NHL coach will get fired first. The two leading candidates are Ed Olczyk at Pittsburgh and Jaques Martin in Florida. The 2nd tier of coaches on the hotseat are Mike Sullivan in Boston and Steve Stirling of the Islanders. If they are replaced, who would replace them? I am sure Dave Lewis would be one of the names tossed around. image

Live From Nashville

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the NHLPA,

"The Greg Johnson Show" has become a popular draw for fans of the Nashville Predators over the past few years, a radio program hosted by the captain of the Western Conference club, one that allows people to get up-close and personal with the players. "I really enjoy it," said Johnson, of the live radio broadcast that takes place at Blackstone Restaurant & Brewery. "When the organization asked me to do it, I thought it would be neat to talk hockey and have the fans come out and watch." Just don't expect Johnson to entertain the thought of getting into the broadcast side of the game once he hangs up his skates. "I don't think so," said Johnson, who played four seasons at North Dakota, where he recorded 272 points in 155 career contests and was named one of the WCHA’s “Top 50 Players in 50 Years,” in celebration of the conference’s 50th anniversary, in November 2001. "I really don't think I have a good radio voice."

Havlet Separates Shoulder

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Ottawa Sun,

Ottawa winger Martin Havlat left the game in the third period with a dislocated right shoulder after being checked by Montreal winger Michael Ryder and falling into the boards. Senators coach Bryan Murray speculated Havlat could be lost to the team for a month -- maybe more. "I'm not a doctor and I don't know the extent of it, but normally it's a fair amount of time," said Murray. Havlat is due to have an MRI to assess the extent of the damage today.

Sharks May Shake It Up

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Mercury News,

"I am patient and I believe in our players, but I'm not blindly loyal," Wilson said shortly before the Sharks flew to Dallas, where they will seek their first victory in 10 games tonight. "I have a responsibility to our team and our fans and this organization to live in the present." Wilson would not say if any deals were imminent. Most offers he has heard have been too one-sided, he said, as other teams try to take advantage of the Sharks' poor start.

The Statement Fits Many

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

You could probably replace the name Roenick with about 20 other names, and the statment would still be true. from the Long Beach Press-Telegram,

"I'm not happy with the way I've been playing, not at all," Roenick said. "There have been some games where I've played really well, and overall I don't think I'm doing anything extremely terrible but I also don't think I'm doing anything extremely good, which is unlike me. But I'll stay with it and I'll stay patient. "I understand that I'm older and that it's a different game now. It's different than it was a couple years ago, and I'm almost two years older than when I played before (the lockout). I really feel that I can get back to that level, because if I didn't think that way, I wouldn't even be bothering right now."

Florida Woes

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Al Strachan of the Toronto Sun,

The Panthers now have lost 13 of their past 14 games, the most recent being the 2-1 victory by the Maple Leafs on Monday. The announced attendance of 11,215 probably wasn't even half that -- despite the fact that the team is selling promotional tickets for 75 cents. And when you watch the Panthers play, it's little wonder that the crowds are consistently small. The concept of the new NHL with its open, offence-oriented game, apparently has escaped Martin's attention.

Ovechkin Being Noticed

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Reuters,

Just a quarter of the way into his first National Hockey League (NHL) season, Alexander Ovechkin has already made one thing abundantly clear -- rookie sensation Sidney Crosby is not the only new kid on the block. Ovechkin, a 20-year-old Moscow native, arrived in the NHL this year as a greatly touted prospect, bearing a rich athletic pedigree and the high hopes of his new team, the Washington Capitals.

Jiri Fischer Plans To Return

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

First I have heard of this, and I don't believe it... from Ted Montgomery of USA TODAY,

Make no mistake about it, if Fischer returns to play, he runs the risk of this happening again. If I had a similar condition and was hearing what I'm hearing from medical professionals, I would never play hockey again. The risk is too great. But Fischer has told the Red Wings that he needs to keep playing, and unless they can change his mind, he probably will return to the ice. I wouldn't be surprised if the Red Wings legal staff and Fischer's agent are at this moment negotiating the terms of his return. It's a sad situation for a 25-year-old guy who has never known anything but hockey in his life.
