Kukla's Korner Hockey
Many of you know we have a pretty detailed list of many of the hockey related sites on the web.
We have now added an area in the KK Forum where you can point out specific details about your blog or website. Feel free to point to a blog post, but do make sure you do a “soft-sell: too, which will encourage KK readers to click the link!
As always, I also encourage you to point to your blog in the comments here at KK too. If you have something of interest on a post here, by all means let the KK readers know about it.

In case you haven’t noticed, VERSUS has their NHL schedule up. I see game 2 in London will be televised beginning at 12 noon ET.
from Rangers Report,
...My personal favorite, though, was Avery talking about his reputation in the press, and how most of the national hockey media is clueless when it comes to him (he actually used the word “stupid” when referring to the Canadian press, which was a bit strong). Then he said that he really only has to answer to us—meaning the media that covers the Rangers. It was a nice touch, although I’d like to hear him take it a step further and say he really only has to answer to me.
more and you can listen to the Avery interview there…
Puckhound61 just posted a link to NHL TV in the KK Forum.
If you are intested in watching the games on your computer this season, I suggest you take a look at it.
I have also embedded the video on the direct page of this post too.
The embed didn’t work very well, so I removed it and will try to make it work.
There is no other NHL team that has used the web to their advantage like the Washington Capitals.
I started receiving a daily email from the Caps titled “Caps Today” with all types of great links in it. It points to audio, links, video and upcoming events.
I would only hope other NHL teams follow the example the Caps are providing us “new media guys”!
from On the Forecheck,
Thanks to JavaGeek over at Hockey Numbers for pointing out that the NHL is using a new format for its game report files, starting with last night’s exhibition game between the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings. For hockey stats analysts, this is a bit like Christmas in September; there are some welcome additions to the detailed information presented online after each game, although it will take some work to reconfigure how we pull that data down and bring it into a structured format.
from William Houston of the Globe and Mail,
Despite Canada’s domination of the junior hockey Super Series, the tournament was a success at the gate and on television.
The event worked so well that Hockey Canada wants to do it again, or at least is looking into reprising the tournament next summer, with Canada playing the United States.
Despite all the changes around here, the KK Hockey Links Page is still in business and updated with a lot of new sites, blogs and hockey media to check out. A great resource.
You can also access that page anytime from a link on the left sidebar under “More Hockey Links.”
note: If you’ve sent us a note about your site or blog and it’s not included, there is a chance I overlooked your email. My apologies for the hassle, but please feel free to send me another notification any time.
from Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette,
It has long been suggested the Canadiens are a year-round obsession in Montreal, and, in fact, wherever the team’s fans crop up worldwide to deify or diss their favourite team.
Montreal, as the saying goes, is nine months of winter and three months of poor skating.
Habsinsideout.com, The Gazette’s year-old Canadiens-devoted website, has proven both to be true through an offseason that allegedly began June 6, the morning after the Anaheim Ducks polished off the Ottawa Senators to win the Stanley Cup.
from William Houston of the Globe and Mail,
Afternoon radio was given a shakeup yesterday with the announcement that the CBC is launching a Hockey Night in Canada show on Sirius Satellite Radio.
Radio personality Jeff Marek is jumping from AM 640 Toronto to be the host of HNIC Radio, which will air from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. (Eastern), beginning Oct. 1.
Marek’s departure leaves Bill Watters without a co-host on his AM 640 afternoon drive show. Also without a host is the station’s noon-hour show, Leafs Lunch.
