A Note About Spector’s Site

Lyle Richardson asked me to post this about his site…

His site has not been suspended but is in fact going through a server upgrade.

The site should be up and running normally soon as it’s going to be migrated to its own dedicated server

updated 11:18am, Spector’s Hockey is running smoothly again.

added 11:31am, The migration probably hasn’t been completed.  Sometimes the site is available, sometimes it is not.  Just check every so often.

Preparing For The Deadline

via Rich Hammond of Inside the Kings,

Obviously, it’s going to be a fun week to see how all this trade-deadline stuff shakes out around the league. If you’re really looking for credible information, posted by writers who use their actual names and do reporting by talking to actual people, any of the blogs linked on the right side of the page are good resources.

I’d like to point out two more, for those who might not be aware of them. Greg Wyshynski posts news, and a lot of really entertaining features, at his Puck Daddy blog on Yahoo. Paul Kukla does a fantastic job, at Kukla’s Korner, of posting the latest news and actually attributing it to sources. What a concept!

No payola involved. Those are just two sites I happen to enjoy visiting. Feel free to post others that you think do a good job.

Very nice of you to include KK!  I also want to point out Alanah does a great job helping out and I would be lost without her.

Now Rich is asking (use the above link) for other sites that you think would be worthy of a mention, so let him know and I will be following it and keep KK readers updated.

Off Goes The Forechecker

Dirk Hoag of On the Forecheck fame, has decided to move on from KK.

I want to thank Dirk for his professionalism and we depart on very good terms.

I am sure Dirk will let you know where he is headed and I wish him nothing but success.

Meanwhile, here at KK, we will continue to provide you with all of the latest hockey news from around the hockey world. 

Even though people come and go, one thing remains constant here, and that is you, the members and guests of KK.  Our numbers continue to grow and we hope you continue to visit us on a regular basis.  Last year on trade deadline day, KK had over 970,000 pageviews and I expect that number to increase on Wednesday.

Again, we thank everyone for their support and anticipate another great rush to the playoffs here at Kukla’s Korner.

Question Of The Day

In my NHL.com article today, I asked readers of playoff bubble teams how they feel about their chances of making it into the second season.

So, I am also asking readers of KK the same question- Will your team make the playoffs and give me the reasons why they will or will not?

Bleepin’ Tortorella

from The Good, The Bad And The Duthie,

The night John Tortorella was hired by TSN, I made a confession to him.  I told him I had always secretly hoped he’d be fired by Tampa, just so we might get a chance to bring him on the panel.

He swore at me.  But he was smiling as he cursed.

No coach has ever brought me more amusement than Torts.  His post-game news conferences were often better than the game. 

“We need a BLEEP BLEEP occasional save.  Four goals on 16 shots, I’m getting tired of the 25 percent rule.”

continued

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

The moment John Tor torella walks through the door of the Ranger locker room today to take command, that will be the end of the excuses and that will be the end of the crutches for a team whose players sure didn’t seem very sorry to see Tom Renney go yesterday.

Give It Up Dwayne!

Both Alanah and A2Y have brought it up, now Puck Daddy gets involved.

Many of you know what Dwayne has done to KK in the past, if not, just click the Dwayne tag at the bottom of this post and make sure to read all of posts regarding him.

I guess he is still fooling and deceiving people, telling them about his journalism degree from McGill and how well he is connected with the NHL.  It is up to you to decide but one has to wonder why no other well known bloggers, most who have met him, have anything good to say about him.

Getting back to the Puck Daddy story regarding TwitterBurke, raise your hand if you did not know it was a parody!  Hey you in the back with your hand up, you don’t belong here, the hockey talk is much too advanced for you.

According to Sports Business Journal,  NBC’s telecast of the Penguins/Capitals game on Sunday drew a 1.1/3 overnight rating.  It ties Rangers/Penguins (1/18/08) and Red Wings/Penguins (2/8/08) for the highest indoor rating NBC’s drawn this season.  The only comparable game from last year is the March 2nd Rangers/Flyers broadcast, which also drew a 1.1 rating.
