George McPhee Is About To Get Real Busy

from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune,

McPhee’s phone is already buzzing with GMs trying to make deals in principle. He is permitted to eventually make expansion-draft trades with teams. In other words, McPhee says, “Maybe we take a pick or prospect to promise not to take this player from a team or to take a player from that team.”

“I’ve built high-flying teams in the past, offensive, entertaining teams and would like to do the same thing,” said McPhee, the Washington Capitals GM for 17 years. “What we do with the expansion draft hasn’t been settled yet because until we see the entire universe of what teams want to do, who they want to protect and expose, we don’t know which way we’re going to go.”

KK- More Problems Fixed

We have been having an issue with permalinks opening correctly and member comments.

Those issues should be ok now but if you run into anything, please let me know.

Thanks.

KK- Back Up

from KK hosting service,

Our Monitoring team was able to get your parent server back online and functioning properly. I have reviewed the server and it should be safe to wait until the scheduled time to perform the drive replacement that the parent server requires.

If, for some reason, the parent server has issues again and requires a reboot, we will perform the RAID repair at that time to ensure no further disruptions to your service. If there are no further issues with the parent this afternoon/evening, then we will update you again just prior to the scheduled maintenance at 1AM tonight.

If you have any questions or concerns about this, just let us know. Thank you."

Sorry again for the issue this morning.

Ouch!

from Warner Todd Huston of Breitbart,

Kukla admitted that the author of the blog had written for a long time and had never done anything to meet with disfavor before. But, Kukla went on to note his intolerance of the “offensive” blog entry.

“It does not reflect my beliefs and I was disgusted with the topic itself. I see hockey players in one way only, they are players. Race, gender, etc. do not come into play in my mind, just hockey,” he said.

Regardless, it seems that Paul Kukla is not one much for a diversity of opinions on his hockey blog.

I do not recall saying this, "Kukla admitted that the author of the blog had written for a long time and had never done anything to meet with disfavor before."

I wish they had contacted me line Deadspin did but they did not.

DeadSpin On The Puck Stops Here

from Barry Petchesky of DEADSPIN,

I wasn’t on the internet last night, so my first exposure to the mess that happened over in the hockey blog corner of the internet was this apology letter. Here are the first two lines:

I am going to address the blog post from last night at The Puck Stops Here, which has been removed.

The title of the post was ‘NHL Promoting Black Players With All-Star Selections’ and it went downhill from there.

Oh no. Oh no.

So, Paul Kukla’s a great guy and a great hockey blogger. His site, Kukla’s Korner, also hosts a number of other blogs. One of those, The Puck Stops Here, written by an anonymous longtime blogger, published a typo-ridden post last night about the recently announced All-Star Game lineups.

KK- Addressing The Deleted Post From Last Night

I am going to address the blog post from last night at The Puck Stops Here, which has been removed.

The title of the post was 'NHL Promoting Black Players With All-Star Selections' and it went downhill from there.

First off, the author of The Puck Stops Here will no longer be allowed to write again for KK.

I take full responsibility for it being allowed online and I am sorry for that.  He has been writing for quite some time and I have no idea why he decided to write what he did, but he did.

It does not reflect my beliefs and I was disgusted with the topic itself.  I see hockey players in one way only, they are players.  Race, gender, etc. do not come into play in my mind, just hockey.

Now to address some things in bullet form:

My Apologies

Normally I would have caught the latest and now last blog post at The Puck Stops Here but I have been under the weather yesterday and dosed off.

I apologize if the post offended you as it did me and I do want to say his opinion does not reflect my views or anyone else at Kukla's Korner.

The post has been take down and The Puck Stops here will not be a part of the site moving forward.
