KK- A Lite Friday Night

We have had a busy week here at KK and have decided to get a little R & R tonight.

Feel free to look around, use the search, tags and category features and also feel free to post in the KK Forum.

If anything major comes up, we will post if we can pull ourselves off the couch.

And the Winner is…

Several weeks ago, readers were invited to submit a photo which they felt best illustrated the spirit of hockey coming into a new season, and now we have a winner:  KK member “The Freak” will be receiving a new, $169 pair of Easton Hockey Stealth S11 hockey gloves for his great entry. 

We also decided to give out an unplanned second prize to “Jdunc”. His submission titled “Game Face” was taken while dressed up to watch a hockey game at home on the couch, so we’ve thrown in a $25 gift certificate just for fun, to Ice Jerseys.com.

Both winners will be contacted next week, and you can see their submissions below. Our thanks to Easton Hockey for the prize, and we’ll look forward to another contest in a couple weeks. 

And of course, thanks to everyone who participated!

The Hockey News: Speaking with Adam Proteau

imageAdam Proteau of The Hockey News has recently co-written a book with Ken Campbell, The Top 60 Since 1967: The Best Players of the Post-Expansion Era.

The Hockey News magazine has, for over sixty years, delivered the authoritative word on the premiere puckhandlers of our generation. In The Top 60 Since 1967, they’ve assembled a panel of experts to celebrate the top 60 players of the NHL in the modern era of hockey — the 40 years since NHL expansion. A detailed analysis accompanies each player, along with photos and statistical charts. Will Wayne Gretzky trump Bobby Orr for the number one position? How does Mario Lemieux stack up? And what about Patrick Roy, Phil Esposito, Sidney Crosby?

Today I talked with Adam about his book, future changes at The Hockey News, and things going on around the NHL—you can hear it on the player below. (*or download this mp3 audio file, if you prefer)

A Conversation with Keith Jones

Today I had a chance to chat with Keith Jones—“Jonesy”—about his 8 year NHL career with the Washington Capitals, the Colorado Avalanche and Philadelphia Flyers.  Jonesy was good enough to share the story of his unusual journey to the NHL, as well as his media work these days with Versus.

Jonesy has a book out, co-authored with ESPN’s John Buccigross (whom Paul interviewed earlier), titled “Jonesy: Put Your Head Down and Skate: The Improbable Career of Keith Jones.”  The proceeds from this book go to Alex’s Lemonade Stand, a Philadelphia-area charity which helps the childhood victims of cancer.

The interview can be heard on the flash player below, (or you can download the mp3 audio file here).

A Conversation with Eric Duhatschek

Paul talks to Eric Duhatschek of the Globe & Mail this morning about all things hockey including the hit on Kesler last night, CBC’s Satellite Hot Stove and more.  Eric’s also talks about his new book (more info here).

From Eric’s publisher:

Eric Duhatschek was the winner of the Hockey Hall of Fame’s Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award for “distinguished contributions to hockey writing” in 2001. In 2000, after twenty years of writing about the NHL and the Calgary Flames, he joined globeandmail.com, where he writes a five-times-a-week NHL column. A frequent contributor to Hockey Night in Canada’s Satellite Hot Stove segment, he has covered four Winter Olympics, nineteen Stanley Cup finals, every Canada Cup and World Cup since 1981, plus two world championships. Most recently, he was appointed as the newest member of the Hockey Hall of Fame’s annual Selection Committee.

Interview can be heard on the player below, or you can download it directly here.

KK- A Few Minor Tweaks

Some of you may have noticed a dotted-line underneath any links within the posts at KK.  Hopefully this will resolve the problem some folks were having with actually seeing the link.  You will also notice when you hover over the link, the dots fade away.

We have also moved the comments up, right underneath the name of the poster.  We have kept the comments in the old place too, but those will soon be gone.  Hopefully everyone will get used to the new location.

KK Hosting/Server Issues

Unfortunately, Kukla’s Korner was unavailable for a while tonight. Our host apparently suffered some serious difficulties, as it appears a number of other websites on the same server went offline as well.

I’m not sure about the cause of the problems as yet, so I can’t guarantee they are over. For the moment, I’ll just cross my fingers and hope the site stays online.

Sorry for the inconvenience—thanks for being patient.

update 6:56am(Paul), All is well… There was a scheduled maintenance that I failed to note here at KK…
