Kukla's Korner Hockey
It has been a long couple of days for us here at KK. We plan to take it easy for the night, however we may pop-in here and there.
As mentioned earlier, we’re giving away a $25 gift certificate (for shop.nhl.com or IceJerseys.com) to a random KK member every hour until 2:00pm ET. The winner must login and comment on this post within 20 minutes to claim their prize or the certificate will be added to the 12pm ET prize, making it $50.
The first winner at 11am ET is La Puck (screen name “Denny”)
Hope to hear from you quickly!
Update 11:21am ET: Prize was unclaimed in time and now rolling over to 12 noon. Next prize $50!
Kukla’s Korner just keeps on growing and to show our thanks to you, we will be giving away a $25 gift certificate to Shop.NHL.com or IceJerseys.com beginning at 11:00am ET today, then again at noon, 1:00pm and 2:00pm.
In order to be eligible to win, you must be a KK member, no charge to join, then, when you see a post at the top of those hours mentioned above and you see your name in the post, you must leave a comment within 20 minutes to win. Easy as that, and if no one responds, we will add the certificate to the next hour’s prize package.
We hope you enjoy the day and you get every player you are wishing for!!!
Also feel free to check out the KK Chat Rooms throughout the day and chat it up with hockey fans just like you.
You may want to check in Tuesday, especially at 11am, noon, 1pm and 2pm ET.
You may be happy that you did. If not a KK member, you can register here and get this, it is free and you may actually win something!!!
More information on this in the morning.

In order to provide KK readers with quickest load-times during this busy time, we have removed the scoreboard widget on the right sidebar. It will return in time for the games tomorrow night.
If this is your first time at KK during the trade period, may we suggest you keep an eye on previous posts. If additional information comes about regarding that topic, we may just add to that post, depending on the importance of the new information.
Many emails have streamed in from KK readers, asking about our trade deadline plans.
Our plans are the same as always, giving you the hockey news when it happens.
You can review our work from last year on Februay 27, 2007 to get an idea on how we will present the news to you.
Also, I am sure the KK Chatroom will be active during trade deadline day too.
Many of you have read Steve’s posts in the past and we encourage you to read his blog on a regular basis.
We have done a little shifting of the KK Member Login/Logout area, which can now be found next to the orange RSS feed button on the top, right side. We have also added the Eye on the Media blog to the subscription feeds page, just click the icon and make your choice.
I had the pleasure of speaking with NBC studio analyst Mike Milbury this morning, previewing the Ducks/Wings game on NBC this Sunday at 3:30pm. We also discussed a few other topics in the NHL, including the trade deadline.
The KK crew thanks Mike for taking the time to talk about the game and we hope you enjoy the interview.
I had the chance to speak with Risto Pakarinen, a fellow NHL.com blogger and freelance writer.
We discussed hockey of course, and the view of the NHL from the European standpoint as well as a few other topics.
Risto has released a fine little book, Off The Post, which can be purchased here.
I have decided to stay home during the ASG Weekend, which will allow me to re-charge my battery as the race to a playoff spot is about to get real interesting.
As the NHL types begin to gather in Atlanta for the ASG, we will be providing KK readers with all the information they need to know about the mid-season classic.
