Kukla's Korner Hockey
WGR Radio in Buffalo has created “The Ottawa Song”.
from William Houston of the Globe and Mail,
At the midway point of the 2007 Stanley Cup tournament, hockey experts are beginning to wonder whether the game is in trouble again.
Goal scoring is down. Columnists are griping about the absence of offence. At Hockey Night in Canada, Ron MacLean and Don Cherry have been complaining about the officiating and the decline of physical play.
Has the game really regressed, despite the continued zero tolerance toward restraining fouls? Or is it the crackdown on obstruction that’s responsible for the malaise?
We asked some prominent hockey broadcasters for their thoughts.
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.
Why put up an older video?- just a test but read on hockey bloggers.
NEW YORK, NY / RESTON, VA (MAY 1, 2007) — The National Hockey League (NHL) announced today that it has teamed with Voxant, the Viral Syndication Network (VSN), to distribute video clips of game highlights, bloopers, noteworthy moments and other news to thousands of websites and blogs through TheNewsRoom (www.thenewsroom.com). The clips, available beginning today, may be obtained for free and are accompanied by advertising, which provides revenue to content owners and sites where content is published.
NEW YORK (May 1, 2007) – The National Hockey League (NHL) will offer free hockey programming to consumers on the Joost distribution platform beginning at the start of the 2007 Stanley Cup Final. The announcement was made today by Joost™, the world’s first broadcast-quality Internet television service.
Under the agreement, the NHL will provide full-game replays on a delay and highlights from this year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs, combined with a rich selection of vintage games from the NHL archives. Some of the historic action available includes: game 7 of the 1994 Stanley Cup Final in which the New York Rangers defeated the Vancouver Canucks; game 7 of the 1993 Western Conference Final game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Los Angeles Kings featuring Wayne Gretzky; and the ultimate game of the 1997 Stanley Cup Final, in which the Detroit Red Wings topped the Philadelphia Flyers.
from Neil Best at Newsday,
It should be noted here that Fischler is 75, has authored more than 90 books on the sport and has been attending pro games in New York since Gretzky was an infant - Walter Gretzky, Wayne’s father.
Yet there he was, all over MSG’s 75-minute postgame. First he worked the crowded locker room with microphone in hand. Later he called the officiating “dreadful” and told a story about Bill Barilko’s Stanley Cup-winning goal for the Maple Leafs in 1951. (He picked it up on the radio from Canada.)
How and why is he still at it? The how is a credit to the paddle handball games that keep him fit. As for why: “I love what I’m doing. My passion for hockey is what it was when Bill Barilko scored that goal in ‘51.”
Game 3 of the Rangers/Sabres series drew a 1.3 rating and a 3 share in the overnight ratings.
Game 2 on Saturday between the Wings and Sharks drew a 1.0/2.
...Poulin, or the truth or possibly the Hockey Mod.
You see Dwayne (Eklund) is all of them (make sure to check the comments in bold, they are all from him). Pay special attention to some of the comments, where he makes himself look like the greatest person in the world.
When I asked him about this, furious that he attempted to deceive KK readers, he told me his IP address was stolen.
I have 100% it is him, as a matter of fact, 200%, as do other hockey blogs that he has pulled the same stunts on.
Do you want more lies and fabrications, just ask him, you will be amazed…
For the record, I tried to handle this behind the scenes with Dwayne, but the lies just continued.
