Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Why must writers question and even try to decide when a hockey great should retire? The decision should be made by the player himself, he knows how he feels and if he can contribute. Players like Lemieux should not be questioned by writers or anyone else, they have given their all to the NHL and have earned the respect to make the retirement decision alone, without any help from anyone else. from the Sporting News via Yahoo,

Lemieux has 22 points in 26 games this season but usually has been a shadow of what he used to be, and he's playing on a terrible team. Even without playing, he could have a positive influence on the team and rookie Sidney Crosby. Lemieux doesn't need to return. Not this time.

Going Back To Travis Roy

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John Buccigross of ESPN,

One area where SportsCenter has never been better is in its storytelling. The topics are often compelling, and the presentation is often flawless. Recently, SportsCenter gave its viewers an update on the life of Travis Roy. Roy gained national notoriety after shattering his C4/C5 vertebra just 11 seconds into his first shift of college hockey in a nationally televised game at Boston University in 1995. The resulting spinal cord injury left him paralyzed from the shoulders down.

from the Risto Pakarinen blog at NHL.com,

It's a long, long season, isn't it? I know the players and coaches always talk about how January is murder, but I must admit that I am suffering from a pretty bad case of midseason fatigue as well.

But put aside the image for a moment; the checked shirts, cowboy kickers and that piece of wheat clenched firmly between his teeth.
