Fun To Watch Tim Thomas

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Cam Neely of the Boston Bruins,

What do Birmingham, Houston, Finland, Providence and Sweden have in common? They are all places Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas has played. Despite being a new face to many Bruins fans, Thomas is far from a rookie, and has had somewhat of a less-than-glamorous career. ...It's been really fun to watch him step up to the plate. You always like to see a player exceed expectations. It's also great to see him having fun. It's easy to take the job for granted, and let it become a grind even when you play sports for a living; it's easy to forget why you started playing in the first place, and unfortunately, that's when you seem to lose the most.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

In an article from the Philly Burbs about the health outlook of Keith Primeau, a little trade rumor was mentioned-

Rumors are flying that the Flyers will go after Keith Tkachuk of St. Louis. But there is talk in Columbus that either David Vyborny, who played well for the Czech Republic in the Olympics, or Jan Hrdina could be headed this way.

Surviving The Marathon

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

The NHL returned to action Tuesday after the 15-day Torino Olympic break. For teams from coast to coast, the next 50 days between Feb. 28 and the final regular season games on April 18 promise to be a blur. Teams will play anywhere between 23 to 26 games during this period, essentially one every other night. It is a schedule that will test the resolve of players, the depths of organizations and the wherewithal of coaches and their staffs, to say nothing of the training staffs who will have to patch together lineups every 48 hours or so.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Toronto Sun,

Darcy Tucker accused some Washington Capitals of "laughing" at the Maple Leafs in the waning moments of the Caps' 5-3 victory last night. Tucker refused to identify any of the alleged snickering visitors, only remarking that "it just wasn't fun."

Roenick Goes Silent

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the LA Times,

The mouth that roared, but never bored, is on sabbatical. The Kings' Jeremy Roenick, faced with what could be the final leg of his NHL career or a cleansing strong finish to a frustrating season, has gone mum, turning down interview requests the last two days. Whether he is ready to let his play do the talking remains to be seen.

Rule Changes Start Tonight

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

I just read on the Ice Block that the NHL will institute some rule changes starting tonight. David caught it on TSN in an article about the Flames and Canucks. You would think this would be getting more press than what it is getting, but this is the first I have heard of it.

Beginning tonight pucks fired directly over the glass in the defensive zone are no longer an automatic two minute minor. If a puck is deflected, batted or gloved over the glass and the referee deems it unintentional, it is no longer a penalty. Also, all sticks will be measured before shooters take part in the shootout. If a stick is illegal, its owner is sent back to the bench for a legal stick.
update 5:22pm, Thanks to KK reader Clancy for giving me the heads up- NHL.com has the complete language of the rule changes.

The Maven- “Rangers Are Legitimate Cup Contenders”

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler of MSG Network,

-Henrik (Henny) Lundqvist’s Torino triumph has turned the Rangers into a legit Stanley Cup contender. The feeling along Scouts Row is that the Blueshirts require one more capable D-man to make them legitimate contenders with a Capital L! -The March 9 trade deadline is too late for a few managerial types. Some would like it pushed to February. -Who are the toughest defensemen, one-on-one in the NHL? Jarome Iginla names Adam Foote, Mattias Ohlund and Chris Pronger.
