Kukla's Korner Hockey
Spector has some UFA talk up today and I will be relaxing just a bit.
We have the NHL Awards Show coming up next week, the NHL Draft and the craziness that is the UFA signing period which begins on July 1st.
KK will also be undergoing a major facelift and a few other surprises too.
Kick back a relax a bit today… I will have the results of the KK Stanley Cup Challenge up sometime in the next few days. It will take some work to tabulate the TOI (time-on-ice) and match them up to all the predictions.
A little dropoff from last month, but expected. As teams dropped out of Stanley Cup contention, so did the interest in the game.
We thank you again for your support of all the blogs affiliated with KK and ask you continue to visit on a regular basis during the summer months.
We will be undergoing a facelift in the near future to enhance your visits to Kukla’s Korner.
Don’t forget about the latest KK Challenge for a chance to win an NHL Fathead.
Sorry for the outage tonight. My host had some serious database problems and it was a problem for every website on the system.
Not sure if it is 100% up yet, but it appears to be coming back…
added 10:16pm, from my hosting company, technical if you want to read what happened…
•With the Memorial Weekend right around the corner and only two teams left to fight for the Stanley Cup, many of you will probably not be visiting KK on a regular basis.
The whole crew appreciates your patronage throughout the year and we look forward to seeing your from time to time during the next three months or so.
We will posting on a regular basis, so make sure to keep us in mind.
•The two, open KK Challenge winners will be announced in the next 24 hours and another Challenge will be announced soon for the SCF.
•KK will be going through a transformation during the summer months which will enhance your visits. Look for those to begin in early to mid-July and be completed by the end of July.
I won’t let the cat out of the bag, but will say it is something that we are all excited about.

Hopefully you can figure out the names of most, if I spent time linking them all, I would not be sleeping tonight.
A family matter takes me away from the computer for a few hours this morning.
If Alanah or The Sailor have some time, they will update, if not, I should be back in 2 hours.
In case you are “new” to KK, don’t forget to take a look around the whole KK Site.
Abel to Yzerman gives you all the Wings/Ducks coverage you want, while Canucks & Beyond is coming out of a depression state and will soon be pointing out hockey topics I would not even think of.
Also, don’t foget about the latest KK Challenge.
I’ve updated the World Wide Web of Hockey page today. Lots of new sites added, and the page now features almost 350 unique hockey destinations on the internet. Thanks to everyone for helping make this page such a great resource.
Note: I’ve rejected very few submissions so far, only sites that don’t clearly have significant hockey content. If you have submitted a site that suits this requirement yet wasn’t posted, odds are that I just lost track. My apologies, and please send it again.
Well, I was wrong. I thought we would see a slight decrease in April, but instead, we went over 4 million page views for the month.
The whole Krew thanks you!
To see previous month stats, begin here.
Last month’s KK Challenge to write the best argument about why your team deserves to win the Stanley Cup, produced hundreds of great entries. Fans were clearly well-motivated by the prospect of a new NHL team jersey of their choice!
Contest entries were all judged by the crack writers at NHL.com, and we’d like to give them a big ‘thank you’ for helping out.
The surprise of the contest was that there was a tie, so TWO winners will be picking up new jerseys! One fan for the Vancouver Canucks and one fan for the Buffalo Sabres. Both will be contacted by email this week to make arrangements to get them the jersey of their choice.
Now, please read their contributions. And our thanks to everyone who shared their team spirit.
