Clarke Worried About Primeau

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Phildadelphia Inquirer (Tuesday edition) via the Mercury News,

Primeau has not played since Oct. 28 because of a concussion. Monday morning, while he worked out on a stationary bike at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, general manager Bob Clarke, whose office is next door, sat and wondered: When will his team captain get back on the ice? "Yeah, I'm worried," Clarke admitted. "It's the strangest injury. Like I said to him, `You do an MRI and does it show anything? No.' Other players, like (Boyd) Devereaux, were told to retire. He came back and played and hasn't had a concussion since. "Other guys get concussions and have all sorts of problems. There are no answers. Not for Keith. Not for us."

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John Buccigross of ESPN,

My body needed a timeout, so I took a solid 90-minute power nap in order to have enough energy to watch the Canucks and Avalanche at 9 p.m. What follows is a running diary of watching that game on the Denver regional sports network, Altitude.

Is This It For Yzerman

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bob McKenzie of TSN,

You really have to seriously wonder if the end is near for Steve Yzerman. Now, near is a funny word. Near could mean the end of this season. But near could also mean the end of this week. And were that to be the case, no one should be too surprised. The truth is these must be difficult days, on and off the ice, for Yzerman, a Detroit hockey icon if ever there were one.

Maven Rumblings

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Stan Fischler of MSG Network,

-Is Vancouver planning a trade? One source suggests that it’s possible. “There are rumors of Ed Jovanovski, Todd Bertuzzi, or Dan Cloutier being traded,” says our insider. “If anyone is traded, however, it will be Brendan Morrison. He’s been Marc Crawford’s whipping boy on and off for years. Despite Brendan’s substandard start, he should make the Canadian Olympic Team and thus have value. -This may sound sacrilegious, but Mario Lemieux [minus-16] has been as much a detriment as an on-ice asset to the Penguins. -Flyers boss Ed Snider – he’s the sole owner on the Competition Committee – is fed up with “diving,” as we are as well. “The officials have to start calling the dives and not just the penalties,” asserts Snider. “They seem reluctant to call it because they are not absolutely sure it is a dive.”

Rangers Depend On Comeback Players

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Darren Eliot of Sports Illustrated,

Rangers trio leads trend of comeback players in 2005. One thing that makes Jagr happy in New York is his teammates -- especially Michael Nylander and Martin Straka. Nylander had a nomadic season away from the NHL playing in Finland as well as for two teams in Russia. His return to form after an injury-riddled 2003-04 season has sparked New York's top line. Nylander's puck-possession passing game -- his career assist-to-goal ratio is well over 2:1 -- buys time until Jagr springs free. The pair spent the 2002-03 together in Washington, so the familiarity factor was something the Rangers were counting on.

Defense Must Be Offensive

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Heading into play this past weekend, our friends at Elias Sports Bureau reported that Minnesota, St. Louis and Columbus ranked 30th, 29th and 28th in point production from their defensemen. Wild defensemen had produced a paltry 20 points, the only team in the league with fewer than 30 defensive points and 46 fewer points than league-leading Philadelphia. read on and check out more NHL news...
