Kukla's Korner Hockey
Time to put our game on the back burner and enjoy the warmth of this Holiday Season.
I do thank all of you for your patronage and hope you have a safe and peaceful time and can spend some meaningful time with family and friends.
The big fella is about to begin his long journey, but first he had to get a little warm-up in!
I know many of you are about to get on with your holiday plans and I do hope you have a peaceful holiday season.
I will be updating KK through tomorrow, probably stopping around 4pm or so.
KK will be a post free zone on Christmas and will return on the 26th of December.
It’s that time of year and you may be looking for the hockey gift for family, friends or maybe even yourself.
We are listing the KK affiliates that we think you may have an itnterest in. By using the links below, you are not only finding some great deals but also helping us maintain Kukla’s Korner. Remember, we never have and never will ask you for “support money”, hopefully you will have an interest in some of the products and services we have listed for you.
How about a nice, big Fathead! You have a choice of individual players, team logos and you can even purchase those fine leather recliners in your team colors. Always a great sale going on, check out the link for more information.
Hockey Giant is the #1 Internet Hockey Dealer. All kinds of equipment and apparel.
IceJerseys.com is well known for their customization of hockey sweaters. They do fine work with name lettering and have excellent customer service.
Shop.NHL.com is the official online shop of the National Hockey League and is offering a deal a day thru December 13th.
Under Armour has some great hockey apparel and gear. The link will take you to the Canadian site of Under Armour, but shoppers from other countries can choose their country at the top right of the landing page.
Last Tuesday, Paul Kukla’s NHL.com blog invited readers, bloggers and all media to share their favorite personal hockey memory. The hope is to create a list of links at NHL.com on Tuesday, directing hockey fans to all those stories.
More details here. Hopefully by Tuesday we’ll all have a nice list of personal hockey tales linked at NHL.com that everyone can enjoy.
P.S. A big thank you to everyone that’s taking part and also helping promote this on their own sites. It’s greatly appreciated.
For those of you celebrating Thanksgiving, both here in the States and abroad, we wish you a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving.
Please be safe throughout the day and night and do remember to pass the car keys if need be.
I will be around this morning, although maybe a little later than normal and will stick around until 3pm or so, then it is off to dinner with the relatives and friends.
With 24 teams in action tonight, let’s see how smart you are.
Pick the winner of every game for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to IceJerseys.com.
Anyone who enters will also be included in a random drawing for a $25 gift certificate to IceJerseys.com.
So, all I need from you is this- In the comment area, list only the winner of each game tonight. Also, we need a tie-breaker so give me the total goals scored tonight.
The $50 gift certificate will be awarded to the person who selected the most total wins. If there is a tie for wins, we go to the tie-breaker and if a tie still exists, a random drawing will be held between the people who met the previous criteria.
You need to be a KK member (free registration) in order to be eligible for the prizes and your submission must be time-stamped no later than 6:45pm ET tonight.
Tonight’s schedule is listed below and good luck.
Yes, the Holiday Season is upon us and I wanted to point out two deals that are in progress right now.
Both Shop.NHL.com and Modells.com are having a 20% off sale today. Check out the links below to get the savings.
Also, don’t forget about the KK Member Blog. This area is a great place to let your opinions be known, maybe alert readers about a blog post you made at your own personal blog, or just talk hockey with other fans.
A new feature has been added to Kukla’s Korner, allowing KK members to begin blogging.
We hope you enjoy this added feature and as always, we are looking forward to reading the posts of the many knowledgeable hockey fans that visit KK on a daily basis.
Let the writing begin and you can follow this link to get started.
You will also notice we have changed the navigation area of KK a bit too, simplifying things with a simple drop down menu when you hover over ‘Blogs’ in the black navbar at the top of the page.
P.S. Posts on the KK Member Blog will not appear on the front page of Kukla’s Korner, but they can always be accessed by clicking on that ‘Blogs’ link in the navigation bar.
*original post-time 3:40pm ET Nov.5
I never realized how importand a $12 fan is to a computer, but now I know.
For the last 30 hours, I have been dealing with a ‘cooling’ issue, but now all is well.
Check out Spector’s for all the latest trade rumor talk. Stuff like this…
The Oilers are shopping Dwayne Roloson and his $3 million salary but haven’t attracted much interest so far,“but I wouldn’t be surprised if the Senators, Kings, Avs and Flyers all got calls. Edmonton doesn’t want anything in return.”
SPECTOR’S NOTE: If Roloson should keep playing well in his starts he could attract considerably more interest as he’d be a more affordable option than Nikolai Khabibulin.
Some odds & ends Kukla’s Korner website business to mention:
- Off the Wire is a new page on the KK site (you can access it from the navigation bar above) where we’ll generally be posting minor news and press releases that will be of interest to some fans, but maybe not the broader NHL audience. Those posts won’t show up on the front page or on the KK Hockey page.
- About subscriptions: Don’t forget there are numerous ways to subscribe to KK. To receive all the posts we put up each day this feed is the one to use; to select only specific blogs just take your pick! (And of course, there’s always Twitter.)
- Don’t forget our Hockey Links page—it can be very useful for finding everything from mainstream media outlets to great fan blogs. If you spot any broken links or would like to suggest a site for the page, contact us anytime.
